I have been taking 1000 mgs. of curcumin per day for almost a year. Started out with 500. Hoping to help treat Lymphoma. Will go into more detail if anyone is interested.
Hi, this is Lacey, I also had non-hodgkins lymphoma and I swear by curcumin, I take one pill a day ofTurmeric Supreme with my vitamins and Ensure, every morning with a light breakfast, it has given me back some of the energy I lost from chemo and my tests have been clean and perfect numbers. I have been in remission since Jan. 2015, so we are doing something right. Good Luck.
I have used turmeric but frankly I don’t see much change.
Hi Donald, it’s true, everyone is different, some it works and others no change. I used the regular turmeric, but I am now
using Tumeric Supreme , maker is Gaia.but I also take Magnesium 250 mg. with a vitamin . I use Ensure once a day, my
cancer doctor got me started on that and it is full of vitamins also. I could hardly open my eyes in the morning and now
my energy level is almost normal, feels good to feel alive again. I see the difference ; as my cancer is gone since Jan. 2015
so it is working for me. Hope you feel better and stay with the program. Good Luck, Lacey
Its a anti inflammatory used in traditional Chinese medicine for 300 yearsyou have to get Cucurmin Bioperine in a capsule any drugstore Cucurmin isthe chem in tumeric and Bioperine is black pepper aids in absorption .youcan also by a bag and sneak a little in food when possible good luck
I have Sjogren’s and Celiac and I was using turmeric with bioprine for awhile as I was told it was good for autoimmune diseases. I thought it was affecting my bowels: diarrhea,etc. Anyone else have this problem? Maybe I should to back to it to prove one way or another.
Thank you for the information, if the Chinese have been using it, it has to be good for you, they live very long lives and I use the new one they came out with, it seems to be working for me and I am feeling good finally. Thanks ,
but I don’t see the bioperine in the ingrediants, I guess every developer is different. Lacey
Hi, no I myself do not have your problem ( diarrhea ), I am the opposite, but body working good.
So does diet, play any part in autoimmune disease. My wife wants me to see a nutritionist who uses Leap (lifestyle , eating and performance. They use a MRT (mediator release test which is blood work. The whole deal will cost me close to 1000.00 this includes three meetings with a nutritionist to go over results and set up a plan. Good idea or not
Oh yes look up Dr Mark Hymen on u tube I have auto Immune no sugar sugarfeeds cancer and need litmus paper keep your pH up 7.4 otherwise you setperfect environment for cancer . I was on Paleo diet went off a week haveasites water retention not good need Dr that practices Chinese medicinegood luck god bless
I think the answer is that nobody really knows at this point. Omega 3 fats can suppress T cell activity so they should theoretically help. I’ve seen things about avoiding the over consumption of some supplements that might stimulate the immune system, like zinc.
Here’s a summary doc you might find useful. I didn’t do a deep dive into it but it seems to touch on some key points.
