A Very Common Spice Stopped Her Blood Cancer
There is a stunning medical “miracle” that’s left doctors in shock. Namely, a 67-year-old patient suddenly has managed to cure her blood cancer by treating it, believe it or not, with turmeric.
After years of conventional treatments—chemotherapy of course—had failed in treating her condition, Dieneke Ferguson decided to turn to a natural treatment for her ailment.
Doctors said that “her case is the first recorded instance where a patient has recovered by using this amazing spice after stopping conventional medical treatments.”
After 3 unsuccessful sessions of chemotherapy (along with 4 stem cell transplants), Mrs. Ferguson’s myeloma cancer unfortunately continued to spread at a quick pace.
She began to take 8gr of curcumin daily. It is a substance that we can find in turmeric spice. The compound had quick and dramatic results.
Turmeric is an ancient Asian medicine used for a long period of time to treat maladies, and since few scientific studies have been conducted so far, this makes Dieneke’s story extremely important to researchers.
The Daily Mail reports:
“The blood cancer, which has an average survival of just over five years, was causing increasing back pain and she had already had a second relapse.
“But it stabilised after Mrs Ferguson, from north London, came across the remedy on the internet in 2011. Then she decided to try it as a last resort.
“The tablets are expensive. They cost £50 for ten days. But as kitchen turmeric contains just 2 % curcumin it would be impossible to eat enough to get the same dose.”
Mrs. Ferguson’s doctors from London, documented in the British Medical Journal Case Reports:
“To the best of our knowledge, in the absence of conventional treatment, this is the first report in which curcumin has demonstrated an objective response in progressive disease.”
Studies on how effective turmeric spice is for treating myeloma or blood cancer are still ongoing.
Dr Abbas Zaidi explains, “few, if any, use dietary supplementation as an alternative to standard antimyeloma therapy.”
While other researchers added, “In the absence of further antimyeloma treatment the patient plateaued and has remained stable for the past five years with good quality of life.”
Some experts are however urging the public to use restraint and not become too excited over the news.
One of the report’s authors, professor Jamie Cavenagh, emphasized that the spice might not work for everyone:
“At different stages of their treatment a lot of my patients take curcumin. I don’t object to it.
“Dieneke’s is the best response I have observed and it is clear-cut because we had stopped all other treatment.”
Mrs. Furguson is one of around 5,500 people to be affected by myeloma annually. The disease unfortunately kills around 3,000 every day.
Dieneke says about the blood cancer:
“I hope my story will lead to more people finding out about the amazing health benefits of curcumin,”.
