The healing power of: Kurkuma/Turmeric. Kills cancer.

In traditional Indian medicine, Kurkuma, (aka Curcuma, Kunyit or Turmeric) has been used for thousands of years as an antiseptic and pain reducing agent.
aka Kunyit, Yellow-root or Geelwortel. 


Worldwide, the use of Turmeric is said to have healing properties for brain related diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson ( hardly found in India). The beneficial properties of Turmeric are also being investigated by Cancer Research Institutes.

KURKUMA KILLS CANCER CELLS 

Kurkuma doodt kankercellen

 Kanker
Curcumine heeft een veelzijdige werking in relatie tot kanker. Enerzijds verhoogt curcumine de weerstand in het lichaam tegen kanker (toename antioxidantactiviteit, ontstekingsremming, ondersteuning (lever)ontgifting), anderzijds saboteert curcumine op allerlei manieren het voortbestaan van kankercellen [3,9,18]. Curcumine remt de transformatie van normale cellen in kankercellen en gaat tumorgroei, angiogenese en metastasering tegen. Daarbij verhoogt curcumine de gevoeligheid van kankercellen voor conventionele therapie (chemotherapie, bestraling) [3,64-66]. In-vitro studies en diermodellen voor chemisch geïnduceerde kanker suggereren dat curcumine kanker (dosisafhankelijk) helpt voorkomen in onder meer het maagdarmkanaal (mondholte, slokdarm, maag, duodenum, colon, rectum), prostaat, long, borst, lever en huid [3,7,8,18]. Onderzoekers denken dat curcumine vooral een rol kan spelen bij de preventie en behandeling van kanker in het maagdarmkanaal, omdat daar voldoende hoge curcumineconcentraties zijn te behalen na orale inname [3,8,67]. Er zijn testen gedaan met doses tot acht gram curcumine per dag gedurende drie maanden; onlangs is een (eenmalige) dosis van 12 gram curcumine veilig bevonden [19]. voor preventie van kanker in het spijsverteringskanaal is wellicht een minimale dagdosis van 1,6 gram curcumine nodig; er zi
jn ook aanwijzingen dat langdurige inname van een lagere dosis curcumine zinvol is. Voor meer info click:

 Werkzame-stoffen/curcuma   

Zeer uitgebreid Nederlandstalig rapport, studie op mens en dier.

    It has been shown before that curcuma/kurkuma or turmeric is good for losing weight and it’s beneficial for your memory. Now it is supposed that curcuma also has the power to kill cancer cells.
Scientists of the Cork Cancer Research Center in Ireland have discovered that the Indian yellowroot is capable of breaking down cancer cells.
The team under the lead of Sharon McKenna found that cancer cells started to die 24 hours after they had come into contact with curcuma. Furthermore it was shown that cancer cells started to dissolve themselves after this.
Previous studies have shown that curcuma reduces the growth of fat cells, making you gain less weight. Other scientific research has shown that curcuma also protects against dementia as well.
All studies were laboratory studies. Further research needs to shown if curcuma has the same beneficial effects in humans. However, my personal experience with Kurkuma to treat skincancer are positive. A spot on my back, just between the shoulderblades, over 3 inches in diameter, allmost disappeared within 2 weeks after using the powder....( direct contact by rubbing it on the skin). Almost on a daily base I add kurkuma, cayenne and ginger to my meals for about a month now. My skin seems to be juveniled, little wraths on my hands are gone...

Next to the yellow root there's a black variant:

Black Turmeric is a herb with bluish-black rhizome,
native to North-East and Central India. The leaves have a deep violet-red patch which runs through the length of the lamina. Usually, the upper side of the leaf is rough, velvety, but this character may vary. Flowering bracts are green with a ferruginous (iron) tinge. Flower petals may be deep pink or red in color. The rhizome is bitter, hot taste with pungent smell. Black Turmeric is used in Tantrik Sadhana. The dried leaves are used as a source for fuel. Northern tribes use Black Turmeric as a talisman to keep the evil spirits away.

Presently Black Turmeric is on the verge of extinction due to unfavorable climatic changes, deforestration, soil erosion and bio-piracy
