A British retiree is turning heads the globe over after she completely reversed her myeloma using only a component found in turmeric – after multiple rounds of chemotherapy and stem cell transplants failed to stop the disease.
Hers is the first medically recorded case of its kind and it brings us the greatest joy in the world to bring you this news. Myeloma is cancer that affects blood plasma cells (leukemia and lymphoma are the other two blood cancers).
A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported.
Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on gruelling treatments that failed to stop it.
Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments.
With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric.
Curcumin is the component in turmeric most heavily studied for medicinal benefits.Eight grams of curcumin would take far too much powdered turmeric to get to that amount since kitchen turmeric only contains 2% curcumin. Ferguson’s tablets cost her $67 (£50) every ten days and she continues the routine today. Her cancer cell counts are now negligible.
