I’d like to tell you my personal experience with turmeric and curcumin.
About 4-5 years ago, I was watching Dr. Oz. He was talking about a process that kills cancer cells called APOPTOSIS.
Apoptosis, in short is the process in which cells in the body when they should, approximately every 100 days. Cancer cells do not follow the programming of death every 100 days like normal cells. Turmeric and curcumin REPROGRAM cancer cells to DIE OFF!
Here is a great article and video that explains the normal and abnormal process of apoptosis.
I was extremely amazed by the show and the spice turmeric, and ALL the health benefits it has. So I bought some and started cooking with it. Immediately I noticed a great flavor in the foods I used it in. Needless to say I was hooked!
I shared it with friends and family, and they reported to me that it made the food MORE SAVORY!
Now onto the real meat of the this story……
Turmeric And Curcumin
My Personal Journey
A friend of mine introduced me to a friend of hers, she needed help with some matters. So I helped her. In talking with her she informed me that she had cancer and also needed help getting to the hospital for cancer treatments and follow ups. Again told her I would help . I also informed and suggested that she begin using turmeric in her foods, taking Vitamin D3 and CoQ10; to help her with the cancer. Her doctor nixed the CoQ10 and she began using the turmeric and Vit D3.
Some time had passed and she was going in for a scan to measure the size of the tumor. Well when I picked her up she was just gushing…..It’s shrinking! The tumor was shrinking! I was very happy and it just confirmed what Dr. Oz had broadcast.
So months went by… She was still going in for treatments and scans. Till one day she told me that the cancer was spreading. I was SHOCKED! I asked her if she was still using the turmeric and Vit D3, she was not. After some back and forth, I was troubled by the news and her not taking the turmeric and curcuin and Vit D3.
As the months went by she was hospitalized a few times and finally went into hospice care. I visited her in both locations.
After seeing her condition decline and having small discussions, considering who went before her and her particular situation, I figured that she decided “God thy will be done”.
It was one of those experiences that stick with you and I will never forget her. It was also an experience that solidified the use of turmeric and curcumin.
As I remember from the Dr. Oz show that introduced me to turmeric and curcumin and its relationship to cancer, we have thousands, if not more, of cancer cells in our body everyday. For years, those cells are naturally destroyed and eliminated from the body. This comes from pollutants and chemicals that help to promote these cancer cells.
There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with aiding the body to seek out and destroy these cells before they take hold and become tumors.
See curcumin is part of a class of natural organic compounds called curcuminoids in the spice turmeric that gives these great health benefits. In particular it is curcumin that gives these health benefits. The other curcuminoids are still being studied.
Because Wakaya Perfection Turmeric contains 5 times more curcumin than what you can purchase in stores because of where and how it is grow and cultivated.
