I find it interesting that the FDA tries to get natural remedies banned. Anyone else besides me think that there should be a Food Administration and a separate Drug Administration. Seems to me that they have too much control by housing both under the same leadership. How can there be healthy debate when the FDA is the final word.

FDA...how did they even get those two lumped together? Food and drugs are two different beasts.

Just my 2-cents


Money Money Money. Those who have the money and the power want to keep the money and power. If these two were separated then the people making the unnatural remedy would loose out when everyone paid less for the natural ones.

She uses fresh turmeric root and ginger I believe, mixed with rice milk. I myself find the thought disgusting. One cup a week, and in the 4 years I've known her she hasn't been sick once. I hardly think she takes it 'for the heck of it', but there's no way I'm drinking it! I'll stick to using it in my curry.

Moocowman, bicarb (baking soda) should do the trick getting it off yer shirt


I had a boil, won't go into the details of where, and searched for a natural remedy. Turmeric came out tops for that too, got the details on earthclinic.com, seemingly its good for a range of ailments.

Tumeric, in itself, is not irritating to [most] bowels...... it has a fairly gentle nutty taste. I use it a LOT.

My Bride has had arthritis since her mid-20's. I became aware of some studies that indicated tumeric helpful with arthritis -- this was two years ago. Since then, I've been using it in a lot of foods I prepare. Just tonight, I grilled wahoo with onions, garlic, tumeric and bay seasoning.

M'Bride has experienced a great improvement in her arthritis -- it's nearly nonexistant now. This is far from a double-blind study, however I'm convinced that it has been a strong contributing factor.

Thats great news that she is much better. Don't want to go too off topic here but another recent 'natural remedy' report on the BBC's website was the effectiveness of rosehip for athritis

Obvioulsy you wouldn't want to stop whats working but its just another thing you may want to look into.

No quantity of daily Curry, Ginger, Turmeric, Garlic, Onion, or any herbs will rid us of the incredible amount of pollutants we consume every day. From chemicals in the washing dish liquid to alluminum deodorants to aspartame to refined sugars to tobacco to alcohol to drugs to chemicals to preservatives, artificial colors, genetically modified foods, freon, flourinated waters, lack of exercise, stress genetics and a million more things.

Most people talk about ¨cancer cures¨ but nature already made the body cancer free (except certain genetic malfunctions). Sure, all these wonderful condiments and herbs can help us detox or maintain good health but it is irresposible to pray for a magic pill that can cure your illness without making the sacrifices that come with having a healthy lifestyle.

Stop poisoning your body and you will be cancer free.

I love curry too.

Right you are!
Actually, cancer research is mainly a scam. A medical Ponzi scheme, if you will. There is no cure to be found because the cause isn't being adressed. These researchers want to simply treat symptoms. Their message is: 'Donate money and we'll find a way to extend the life expectancy of a patient by a few years'. That's all. Unfortunately most people are to naive to see it.
As for curcumin, it's pretty old news. And don't anybody think that eating lots of curry or turmeric will help them! Spices are often grown under heavy pesticide treatment. One would have to use exclusively organic certified spices. The problem is that in the countries of origin for these spice products, there is an endemic level of corruption, translating into fraudulent organic claims on the packaging.

Well, easy way to tell if it's effective or not.

If it ends up getting banned by the UN, it works.

Funny I saw this, just today I had an Indian lady that frequents my store tell me about turmeric being used as an anti-bacterial for infections and the like. I bought a bottle to keep in the first aid box. Good thread.

Here are comparisons of cancer incidence statistics in the USA and India (~2003). At least some of the reduced rates in India are speculated to be due to higher curry consumption in India.

While a Dr in the article states "natural chemicals found in turmeric could be developed into new treatments for oesophageal cancer." I have my doubts such a possibility will ever occur given the capitalistic nature of modern medicine and the common misconception that there is an inherent synergy between capitalism and good medicine. Given that neither turmeric nor a multitude of other herbs that have shown promise as anti cancer agents can be patented there is a disincentive to ever bring those herbs to the market as a cancer treatment since chemotherapy is an extremely profitable endeavor for the pharmaceutical industry and any non patented herbal treatment that replaces those chemo drugs will thereby also replace the profits for the big pharma giants. And given that most drug companies are publicly traded corporations that have a legal obligation not to provide the best medicines to the public but rather to provide the best financial value to the shareholder, then the executives would be legally obliged to ensure that such herbal treatments never come to fruition as a conventional cancer treatment protocol because of the damage such a protocol would cause to shareholder value when their high profit chemotherapy drugs are no longer purchased for patient treatment.

I read about this back in 2005. Also good for clearing the plaque in Alzheimer patients brains.

Story from 2005

Curry spice found to fight cancer July 12th, 2005 Turmeric, a spice that is a key ingredient in Indian curry dishes, contains a potent cancer-fighting agent, the New York Daily News reported Tuesday. A study published in the upcoming issue of Cancer magazine related that curcumin, a chemical pigment in turmeric, helped stop the spread of breast cancer tumor cells to the lungs of mice. Now doctors have launched clinical tests to see if it works on humans, said Bharat Aggarwal of the Department of Experimental Therapeutics at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, who led the study. Earlier studies suggest that people who eat diets rich in turmeric have lower rates of breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer, Aggarwal said. He noted that many cancers are 10 times rarer on the Indian subcontinent than in the West. The breakthrough came as no surprise to the owner of an Indian restaurant in downtown Manhattan. Abu Syed told the Daily News: "We already knew that Indian food tastes good. But it is good to hear it can help with cancer, too. It is one more reason to eat plenty of it."

Thailand statistics would be interesting to compare also because use the same ingredients as Indian food. The ultimate Thai dish is panang curry with seafood.
Can someone investigate?

There is a story online of a man who had large boils on his head and skin. He went to the doctors and none could find out why he had them or how to remove them. After spending a lot of money and time with medicines, he heard of turmeric. He mixed it with water and poured it over the boils and they shrank in size and then were gone. People in India have been doing this for years and to many it would seem very strange to mix turmeric with water and pour it over your head. For centuries countries would trade spices around the world like currency. Voyagers were paid in spices. In fact it's stated that it would be nearly impossible to find a home without some spices in it to this day. The internet will unlock many great things after we are able to escape the novelty of entertainment, pornography and online games. Eventually a great awakening will occur.

Amen.


Along with this, we need to change the way we react to new information. Skepticism is healthy, but so is the curiosity to actually experiment and try new stuff out before just scoffing at it and backing away. Whole new worlds will be opened.

Like everything in life there is a maturity or progression that occurs. Currently MySpace is one of the most visited websites along with yahoo mail. People check their e-mail and myspace page every single day and invest countless hours feeding their own ignorance. I have yet to go into a bookstore and not sit down with a book and see someone reading a comic book or something meaningless. An entire bookstore of information and this is what they choose? It's been said that the ancient kings of Egypt were not even given as much as we currently have.

We are living better lives than the ancient kings of Egypt.

Please take that in and absorb that reality for a moment. Our libraries are more vast, we have the internet and world communication at our fingertips. Endless transportation better than anything they could ever afford or create.

No offense to the above but to just hear about this and you have cancer, why are you not researching it? I will create a similar thread later if you'd like to follow it.
