Mata Hari had Thousands of Lovers – But Never Got Cancer!

I have always had a fascination about the story of Mata Hari, otherwise known as Lady McLoed, but she was not a Scot she was Dutch. Her maiden name was Marguerite Gertrude Zelle. In her fascinating book, Julia Keay reveals all about this enigmatic lady who used her body to achieve fame, fortune, poverty and scandal, finally to be shot in October 1917 as she was in the wrong place at the wrong time in 1914 and was taken for a spy by the French. I will not go on about her – read the book, if you can get a copy; it is a gripping, ripping tale! (The Spy Who Never Was; Michael Joseph or Isis Large Print.)

The essence of Mata Hari’s life was that she achieved great wealth and fame by the use of her body as a “dancer” and as a Courtesan. She tried to ensure she had a man every night – not always successfully – or was in the situation of being a “kept woman”. It is evident that Mata Hari had a large number of sexual partners. But, contrary to modern similarities, her well used body seemingly remained illness free. We must ask – Why? How?

It is a well known fact that by “Papilloning”, or flitting from one “flower” to another by ladies whose life revolves around such practices is the cause of many types of vaginal and cervical cancer, not to mention getting pregnant or the many Sexually Transmitted Diseases that abound today. At the beginning of the 1900′s, the idea of men of the type she entertained using the new fangled condom was probably not even thought about. The possibilities open to ladies at that time for their own prevention was probably just a sponge. So how she avoided falling pregnant leaves a big question. But, much more importantly, she seemingly avoided any “incurable disease”. With no protection and, not to put too fine a point on it, a very well used part of her anatomy remaining unprotected, what enabled this Courtesan to avoid the dreaded Big C?

And the answer is almost certainly, that if she were living today, she would be in the 70% risk bracket  of getting cancer. So why the massive chance of illness today and not 100 years ago? Because, at that time there was no “cancer industry”. Dr. Beyer had only Patented his first medication – Aspirin – a few years before. The “chemical industry” had not woken up to the hundreds of billions of profit to be gained by inducing diseases through the introduction of illness causing ingredients, such as aluminium and fluoride in water, Bisphenol-A put into plastic and metal containers, which is a great way to induce cancers  - one research item said that from tests on mice the amount of BPA in a tin of vegetables is enough to give a young girl a significant increase in the incidence  of breast cancer – and so on. Equally, Mata Hari was not open to the “prepared food” industry, where chemicals of huge proportions are used today; she ate fresh food, from the farm rather than from a factory. Today, other than our visit to the Farm Shop,not available to many of us, what food does not come from a “factory environment”? The list of ways used to create a greater profit from cancer is gigantic!

And there is another side to this tale. Have you noticed how much publicity is given to any well known person who gets cancer. It is trumpeted. How a well known star was enticed to have her breasts cut off “in case she got cancer”. Please can anyone tell me how cutting off a perfectly fit and live organ will stop a cancer? So, what if Mata Hari was alive today? She would have, according to one French document published in Santé Magazine, March, 2012,  a 70% chance of getting cancer. Then the “cancer industry” would have had a field day.

It is up to us to protect ourselves. And, we must take care to ensure that we do not fall into the hands of those whose intent is just the opposite. So, to be as good as 100% certain of avoiding any from of cancer take two 500 mg Capsules of  95% Standardised Curcumin a day. The clinical proof is out there.

We Have The Cure – But We are Not Allowed to Use It

Imagine, if you will, the following scenario. You have been shot and you are taken to a hospital and left by people who “do not want to know”. You are in a cubicle where you hear the doctor tell a nurse that unless they do something for you, you will be dead in a few hours. You know that you are slowly fading away; you beg them to help you. But they just walk away. The only thing you know is that you are alone,

This, my friends, is the case in the world today if you have cancer or any other so called “incurable disease”. Because, if you are suffering from a terminal problem, the medical industry has absolutely no interest in getting you better. They are very keen to keep you coming back, so that the chemicals they are pushing into your body continue to do whatever it is they are doing; but they are almost certainly not curing you. And let tell me how I know this.

I have a client who was a cancer patient. He was put on a regime of treatment in a well known hospital where they have literally thousands of cancer patients. And, in his words, he felt worse after each visit. All his symptoms remained; he was not getting better. After months of this, his frustration, let alone his pain, was beyond all bounds. Then he heard about us and what we were doing for people in his state. And while he was with us he told us, and these are his words, not mine “as I was leaving the hospital after my last visit I was joined by one of the team treating me, in the car park. I asked him why I was not getting any better and his reply was this – <we know that there is a cure for cancer, but we are not allowed to use it. It is Curcumin.>

Shocked, frightened and angry, my client has not gone back to that hospital again; instead, he came to us where, from the very beginning of his new natural regime, he became a different man. His pain levels were reduced; his energy level was on the up; and he knew in his heart his body was on the mend. The story is not over as he continues to stay natural and, naturally, is getting better.

Most cancer – and other “incurable disease” centres are the same. They dispense horrendously expensive chemicals to feed the gravy train of profits of the the medical industry in the certain knowledge that the effects at best will add, according to research, an average of two months life extension, at worst could even do nothing at all.

I have offered curcumin to those claiming to be charity cancer hospitals. I have not even had the courtesy of a reply. Are they all controlled by the chemical barons?

What Is In The Bottle or Can Can Kill You, Especially If You Are Pregnant.

“We all encounter health hazards on a daily basis and must take personal responsibility for our health. There are important health messages about how to stay healthy in pregnancy.” So says Fergus Walsh, the Health correspondent for the BBC. He is, of course right. And it is not only in pregnancy, although this is the future of mankind. But, not to put too fine a point on it, how on earth, in this world of high powered advertising and promotion, can most of us, already fully occupied with just living, making ends meet and somehow coping with our day to day needs, take the time to even start looking at what is good or not good for us? And surely, when we go to the supermarket to buy our food and drink, the producers take the trouble to ensure that what we get is good for us?

Not on your life, my friend. It is, in fact just the opposite. The vast majority of what is sold in the supermarket is not only not good for us – it is, in many cases, allowed or designed to make us ill; very ill. In fact, the “cancer industry” – and it is a massive multi billion market – is alive and thriving well. In an article published in 2010,, the BBC reported how the EU had banned the use of Bisphenol A in the manufacture of babies bottles, due to its cancer inducing properties. Bisphenol A or BPA, is used in the production of not only all types of plastic bottles, for both food and non food use, it is also used in the metal can industry. In a recent study in France they estimate that there is enough BPA absorbed by tinned sausages so that if a  mouse were eat just one of them that dose of BPA in the sausage would almost certainly give the animal breast cancer. (Digest Familiale, Novembre 2013.) All edibles, such as tinned vegetables, meat, you name it, absorbs BPA. And as in many things it is not the  individual dose that is the main worry, it is the fact that over a period of time the amount of BPA absorbed from enjoying both tinned and bottled food enhances the chances of attracting cancer by a very high percentage. So, it is easy to see that a deliberate effort is being made to boost the cancer industry by the use of BPA, which can be easily replaced by other products.

Is there a way to avoid this hazard? Yes, several, in fact. First of course, do not buy food or drinks that are in tins or plastic. Not easy, you say! Quite right – almost impossible except that it is possible simply by buying frozen foods – which are fresher than “fresh foods” because they are put into a freezer very quickly after picking and so retain their nutrients which “fresh foods” do not,and that avoids 100% any cans. For drinks, at worst, filter your water or buy a machine that carbonates that filtered water, add a syrup and get your “fizzy drinks”. And, by the way, any good brand of syrup is fine with all the fizzy drinks machines; you do not have to buy the expensive stuff supplied by the machine maker – they only put their label on the ordinary stuff! But how do you prevent from getting cancer and the other so called “incurable diseases” when you are not able to totally eliminate the use of plastic bottles and tins? That is easy too, and far from expensive. As one example, just yesterday I saw tins and bottles of a certain brand of beer. The bottles were cheaper!!! It is not the price per unit that is important – it is the price per kilo or litre or pint or pound as well as the ingredients. We MUST shop sensibly and carefully if we want to stay healthy.

But all is not lost. There is, for the vast majority of us Westerners, no reason why we should get cancer or any of the other so called “incurable diseases” that big pharmaceutical companies encourage. For less then the price of a few cigarettes or a glass of wine a daily intake of Home Cures Curcumin + will add massively to your resistance to these killers. And, it is believed by the Ebola Virus information site that Curcumin is more than useful in the protection against this killer, too.

Look at the video – the clinical proof is there – by the thousand.

The Good News Is – There Is A Cure for Cancer.

And the bad news is – no one in the medical industry will touch it. Why? Because it is almost 100% effective in curing any known type of cancer. It kills it dead. No chemicals; no toxicity; no bad side effects; and it is cheap. It costs less than a glass of beer a day.

Just take one quick look at what is actually happening. By going to the great lengths of needlessly humiliating people like Angelina Jolie who was “persuaded” to have her breasts cut off “to prevent cancer” – which is absolute rubbish, as removing any good organ does not prevent cancer in any way at all – the money grabbing purveyors of poison, otherwise known as the medical industry, gains massive publicity. The spin off of that event is that this same abominable machine has the power to induce the head of The World Health Organisation to tell the world that 28 million of us will get cancer. Thus, by creating fear they, the people who say that they are the protectors of our health, gain a mass more money – keeping us sick. If fear and stress are not illness making, what is??

So let us look at the facts. In brief the good ones are that there is no known cancer that cannot be cured naturally by the use of Curcumin; one only has to look at this document to see that this is true. - And even the most virulent form of breast cancer, almost universally feared as “incurable” is now known to succumb to curcumin -

The bad news – and there is essentially just one – is MONEY. Start at the bottom of the ladder, the doctor you see. He has no intention of curing you. If he does he loses a client – for we are just clients in his shop – and his income drops. It is increasingly being shown that the big pharmaceutical companies pay the doctors to push their latest, most profitable drug, irrespective of its effects, beneficial or otherwise. The Chinese started the enquiry; the Poles are following and of course, the other countries, who will either receive more money to keep quiet or tell the truth. (As the EU bureaucrats are reportedly getting rather large sums of money paid into offshore bank accounts to pervert the cause of justice and legality, two examples being the allowing of the Monsanto brigade to take out restrictive Patents on Fennel seeds and other vegetables ,”around a dozen new patents will be granted, covering species such as broccoli, onions, melons, lettuce and cucumber.” prohibiting their propagation except by the Patentee, the chance of the EU trapping the fingers of the chemical boys does have a ring of remoteness about it;)

And we must bear in mind that these individuals, on salaries to make your eyes water and expenses sheets that turn them into annual millionaires are not granting these life suffocating Patents out of the kindness of their hearts or for the benefit of humankind.

So what can we, the humans who need to be in as good a state of health as possible, do to ensure our wellbeing? The answer to that is simple. Ignore totally anything put in front of you, by big business, television or radio, newspaper or internet until you are totally satisfied that it can be corroborated and is true. Ignore also the well publicised “reports” of the uselessness or even worse, “dangers” of natural medicines. The last two of these I checked, and one was on St. John’s Wort, the other a lesser know herb, which reported “the dangers”, I found the “research” to have been financed by – yes you guessed it – Big Pharma. The French institute that apparently researches the ill effects of mobile telephone is financed and its Director paid for – yes you guessed – by the second largest telecoms company in France.

I have spent over 35 years digging and researching what works and what does not. One of the things I know does work for cancer and a mass of other so celled “incurable diseases”  is 95% Standardised Curcumin, preferably with a tiny bit of Piperine in it to aid absorption.

With over 2,000 clinically proven papers to back up this fact and with the guidance of the world’s leading authorities on the subject, that is why Home cures – – can offer the world the finest Curcumin for Cancer available.

Cerebral Palsy – A Thing to be Rid Of.

I had a telephone call recently from a young lady who has a long list of problems that I think might just interest you. Not particularly for the long list, but from the way she has been “treated” by her medical team. I would not say this to her directly, but it is a disgrace at the way she has not been given the care she should have.

She gave me quite a run-down of her problems which essentially include, asthma, depression and cerebral palsy. She told me she had been given one of the nastier – no name here – anti depressants which luckily she is intelligent enough to leave untouched. For her other problems she was prescribed paracetamol. Yes, you heard it, paracetamol. And that is all! And, of course, hereby hangs a tale.

A doctor’s training is essentially based on two things, - diagnosis and treatment; a good and proper  but all too often rushed or skimped diagnosis is essential – treatment is an altogether different and a  huge subject. But for almost every Medically trained Doctor it consists only of a list of current and past  chemicals. Things that man has made and sells at a huge profit. None of that medical training consists of what foods their patient should eat – or not eat – or what alternative remedies might be applied. The end result of this failing is easy to see. The patient rarely is going to get better!! And, as the following extract shows - Also there is increasing evidence that many current drug therapies simply suppress symptoms and ignore the underlying disease processes. In contrast, many natural products appear to address the cause of many diseases and yield superior clinical results. Unfortunately, most physicians and patients are not aware that these natural alternatives exist. But research in this field is a never ending process. ( doctors deliberately ignore what cures. And my client wants to change her doctor’s regime.

It does not take long to find out what can be put into place for possibly a complete remedy. A quick trawl of the net produces many thousands of documents on how curcumin is beneficial for people with cerebral palsy. Curcumin certainly has a hoard of beneficial effects especially in neurology is the summing up of a paper published in 2012 entitled – “Curcumin in Neurology” from the Department of Internal Medicine, Medwin Hospital, Nampally, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India – (

My personal experience of the use of curcumin is growing almost daily. Of course, I have read many clinical trials results, papers by the dozen and now that we have settled the question of what works and what does not – and Curcuma Longa – Turmeric – does not work for us Westerners, I have arrived at another conclusion; that when coupled with the addition of 80,000 iu Serrapeptase – ( a speedier result can be optioned in almost every instance. The logic of this is simple. Whilst the curcumin is “boosting” the system, there will inevitably be “rubbish” that is created as the dead material is  removed. This “dead material” is dead protein. Serrapeptase “eats” dead protein. Thus, the healing process can be accelerated. This is a known and a clinically proven fact in such as post operative treatment. The “work” of the curcumin is on similar lines to that of an operation.

Thus in cases where there is a need for a “chronic” response to a “chronic” problem, the use of both 95% Standardised Curcumin with 1% Piperine and 80,000 iu Serrapeptase appears to produce improved results. As there have been no studies done on this, I can only offer my opinion. However, at worst the combination can do little; at best it can work miracles of a magnitudes unknown to the medical world. And in the case of cerebral palsy and more of these so called “incurable diseases” there is only one way to go; TRY IT! No harm may come. Much good may.

The Young Risk Cancer as Well!

We seem to take it for granted these days that the younger generation and those who go out “sowing their wild oats” as it was called in my youth, that is sleeping around, has little risk, especially as modern females appear to take “The Pill” as a matter of course. The chance of getting pregnant is fairly slim for most of those. But, according to one report I read a year or two back, it is right across the age band that the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases is increasing. The older generations, she, rid of the risk of pregnancy, he, not always single but increasingly “familiar”, and aided by pornography in its various forms from “risqué” perfume adverts to the hard stuff, leave themselves open to disease. In one paper I saw the Matron of an old folks home reported that around 80% of her “able” clients were “at it”. But it appears that for most of these sexually active people they take little notice of the fact that the chance of attracting a “sexually transmitted disease” is, according to the figures, extremely high.

Putting to one side the shame or embarrassment of having to go to the doctor with some strange happening “down there” it would seem that those active with unprotected sex take little or no notice of what they risk. At the least it is STD’s – Sexually Transmitted Diseases. But at the worst it can be cancer. If you look on Wikipedia, one extract on the STD page is – “in 2005, the World Health Organization estimated that 448 million people aged 15–49 were being infected a year with curable STIs (such as syphilisgonorrhea and chlamydia).[2]“ 

They referred to Sexually Transmitted Infections – STI’s – also called Venereal diseases. They gave no mention of the cancers that result. And you do not have to have strange sexual activities to be infected. Homosexual sex in all its forms as well as heterosexual sex brings with it massive risks if one or both of the partners  is, as the French say, a “Papillon”; someone who flits around. We immediately think of anal sex being a main culprit; it is far from alone. Oral sex, as one famous film star suggested when he got throat cancer, as well as what many of us will term “loving sex” or heterosexual coupling, is an easy route for infection. I have had clients come to me with severe vaginal infections achieved in a normal couple in which both partners are faithful. When she explained to me what her husband had done it was clear where the cause lay. A dildo, or vibrator, which her husband had used to stimulate her anus was then placed in her vagina. The infection from the anus, normally of no consequence if left where it is, had gone into an area of her body that is highly susceptible to infection. Luckily in this case it was picked up quickly with no long lasting ill effects. Another lady I know had an affair with a married man who, with his wife at least, let alone any others, was enjoying sexual relations and gave her cancer. Cancer of the uterus. And it was due to HPV.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Some health effects caused by HPV can be prevented with vaccines.(

This, when you take into account that it is estimated that 70% of women are open to the risk of the Papillomavirus, but who do not contract any infection, is pretty significant.  But we should note that only “some” of the health effects can be prevented. The body’s natural immune system can deal with some too. But for the rest, what is there to do? There are in fact various possibilities here. First and foremost, ensure that any sexual encounter is protected. I remember one of my friends when I was a sixteen year old apprentice, nearly 60 years ago, who enjoyed the pleasures of quite a large number of older ladies, mostly the mothers of his friends I might add, said he would never use a condom because it was “like taking a bath in a fur coat!” Be that as it may, in those days the rate of an infection was much lower. This increase of STD and other more severe problems is greatly due to the way our immune systems are being decimated, deliberately, by the chemical industries of food, health and hygiene.

As for the other ways to combat the risk of attracting a cancer, my motto is “Prevention is Better Than Cure”. The ways of the world today do not allow us to say “stop having unprotected sex” or “only have sex with one person in your life.” So I can offer one very effective way to help combat any possible infection and one almost certain way to cure any cancer. For a natural way to aid lubrication prior to sexual activity, and also a natural antiseptic and anti fungal oil for the relief of infections which should be used after any unprotected sex, you will find two effective products on Both of these products use clinically proven natural oils with exceedingly effective properties.

Finally, to ward off the dreaded “Big C”, and this applies to not only sexually transmitted cancers or other apparently “incurable diseases”, a daily dose of two 500 mg Curcumin with Piperine capsules will give an almost sure protection. For less than the cost of a glass of wine a day – or, perhaps, a few cigarettes – you will be able to help ensure that your health remains safe whatever you do, however you do it. You will find a top quality Curcumin wit Piperine on

There is no way that anyone is going to change the lifestyle of the world today. Whatever their way of life, each one of us, thanks to the power of the chemical industry, is being led towards a pit of disastrous ill health. Some of us may, by the daily taking of just two capsules of 95% standardised Curcumin with Piperine just avoid that. It is up to each and every one of us to ensure our own wellbeing.

Is Surgery The Only Way for Prostate Cancer ?

As someone who has endured a prostate operation, long before I was aware of the proper way to deal with the problem, I recently responded to a post by a lady who runs a “cancer hospital”  where she seems to advocate the types of cures for cancer that are best avoided. And in this case she was promoting a post operative treatment as opposed to a “wait and see what happens” policy. As both of these are, to me, counter productive  ideas, her advocacy is, I feel, towards making money, not curing sufferers?

As those who read my Linkedin posts and these blogs ( and are aware, the facts are undeniable. To talk of anything other than the natural way to deal with cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease among  massive numbers of others, at home, inexpensively is clearly not the option. There is no need for the “cancer industry”.

As arguably the world’s leading authority on the way to cure cancer naturally, using curcumin with piperine can be quoted as saying “There is no cancer that cannot be cured by curcumin”. Dr. B.B. Aggarwal of the M.D.Anderson Cancer Centre, of Houston, Texas gave the following lecture. Although titled for Lung Cancer, as he says at various points, it applies to ALL types of CANCERS.

However, there is a caveat here. A quick scan of the so called “curcumin” products to be found on the net and elsewhere, when one looks at the analysis – if given! – are not the dose of curcumin required by us Westerners . SO – Please Note! Turmeric – Latin name curcuma longa – is the SOURCE of Curcumin – Latin and common name “CURCUMIN”. Curcuma longa contains, on average, just 4% curcumin. The curcumin that we in the West need, not having a regular diet of curry meals over generations, needs to be at least 93% curcumin. To be effective to non regular curry eaters, there also should be at least 1% piperine which acts as a catalyst for absorption by the body. There are very few supposedly “curcumin” products on the market that achieve this. Please read the label to be sure you are not buying turmeric which has a tiny bit of curcumin in it and which does little or nothing for our health. Due to loopholes in labelling laws, nearly all so called “curcumin” products have but a tiny fraction of our body’s needs. If it is “cheap”, it is not proper Curcumin!!! (For the good stuff, please see

And, if, as clinical research confirms, the use of 80,000 iu Serrapeptase is the right thing to take after surgery, so it is with cancer. When the body is “rebuilding” after the cancer is eradicated by the curcumin there has to be dead material – protein – that will need to removed. The use of Serrapeptase ensures this.

I sell both turmeric and curcumin, as there is a use for both, but for a cancer cure it has to be top grade 95% curcumin. Please look at for the commercial information. I advise and supply doctors and practitioners as well as private individuals across the globe on Serrapeptase and Curcumin.

Curcumin is Not New! What is New Is The Clinical Proof.

Anyone doubting that there is any real science to support the Curcumin story might be in for a surprise. A search of Medline on the internet reveals some 1,800 studies describing the various activities of turmeric/curcumin. According to a 2005 Wall Street Journal article titled “Common Indian Spice Stirs Hope” research activity into curcumin is exploding. In that year there were nearly 300 scientific and technical papers referenced to curcumin on the Pub Med database.

What is it about curcumin that has so many scientists excited? The starting point is inflammation which is known to play a major role in the development of most diseases including: Cardiovascular diseases, Cancer, Pulmonary diseases, Neurological diseases (including Alzheimers), Autoimmune diseases, Arthritis and Diabetes.

The above extract is taken from a paper freely available on the net -  And to help us see just a very small number of benefits curcumin carries, they have used an “Aggarwal style” diagram -


Using this clever little diagram we get a direct link into the ways of something called NF-kB (nuclear transcription factor kappa beta) and how it comes up. Without getting into the complex subject of molecular biology, all we need to understand at this point is that NF-kB has a major role in most diseases and inhibition (blocking) of NF-kB can suppress inflammation. The list of diseases that have been shown to be associated with activation of NF-kB is indeed lengthy and includes all of those listed above and many more. It is more a question of what isn’t on the list rather than what is. And, to cut a long story short, it is now known that curcumin is probably the most effective drug, natural or otherwise, in the world.  But, please be aware,it is not Curcuma longa, which is turmeric, the root from which curcumin is extracted. DO NOT BE DECEIVED IF THE LABEL SAYS “CURCUMIN” AND THEN INDICATES A CONCOCTION. IT IS ONLY CURCUMA LONGA. YOU HAVE THAT IN YOUR KITCHEN; IT IS CURRY POWDER!

Curcumin can cure any and all of the diseases on the following diagram - 


and a whole lot more.

You will have already read of my great respect for Dr.B.B.Aggarwal of the M.D.Anderson Cancer Centye in Houston, Texas. The good doctor is a brave man in that he swam against the tide of credibility, including his own peers and employers, who for years ridiculed him; until, one day, on the other side of the world, in India has Boss heard Bharat give a lecture. That was the beginning of published facts coming out. Now, as our good friends in New Zealand confirm, there are many tens of hundreds of confirmed papers. The Chinese recently published one on how they had used curcumin in the treatment of so called “incurable” breast cancer;  ”A study from Zheijian Provincial People’s Hospital in Zheijiang, China indicates that curcumin is capable of inducing apoptosis (cell death) within triple negative breast cancer cells. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a type of cancer that defies conventional therapy.” ( And then again from that same source we have

Yes, curcumin is not new. It is as old as the world. It has been used to cure diseases for millennia; What is new is that man in his wisdom can now prove it is the best way to rid the world of cancer and other horrible killers. It is up to us to ensure that we get the best. Tell your doctor you want curcumin – not chemicals. The way to good health is yours for the taking.

Is Treating Cancer with Curcumin anything New?

Actually, no. What is new, though is the clinical confirmation of what has been going on for thousands of years in Asia, especially India and China. And it is not only for Cancer.

So, a brief potted history.

Curcumin, the active ingredient of turmeric, and we of the Western World need the pure curcumin to obtain the full benefits of prevention and cure of the very long list above, which as you can see is 8 years old. Things have moved on a lot since then, but it all can be traced back to the Southern tip of India, In Tamilnadu. There, as turmeric, it has been used traditionally for thousands of years as a remedy for stomach and liver ailments, as well as topically to heal sores, basically for its supposed antimicrobial property. Since probably1900 BC  turmeric was considered a medicine for a range of diseases and conditions, including those of the skin, pulmonary, and gastrointestinal systems, aches, pains, wounds, sprains, and liver disorders. (Unless you are dark skinned and unworried about any marks on the skin, do not use either turmeric or curcumin topically. It leaves a yellow stain and is extremely difficult to remove!) But, as turmeric was a part of the staple diet, curries being eaten regularly, it required little to be added to gain good effect. For us Westerners, we need the full dose of curcumin, which is 25 times stronger than turmeric. (And here again, I repeat, when you buy a “curcumin” product, look at the label. It is almost certainly not what you need unless it is more expensive. Buyer beware – few “curcumin” products are more than curry powder!!))

Cancer was first mentioned by the great philospher Hippocrates, who walked this earth around 460 – 377 BC. Known as “The Father of All Medicine”, Hippocrates noted what he called Karkinos, which is the Greek word for cancer. However, prior to his evidence, the Egyptians reported what is assumed to be breast tumours in eight different women in around 1500 BC. At that time, though, there was no known use of turmeric or curcumin.

We can then skip a few centuries up to modern times, and more importantly the use of modern computers. In the usual hunger for the collection of data it was noted that there were principally two areas of the world, parts of India and China, where the incidence of things like cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s disease, among others, was very low. The computers were put to work and came up with the reason – diet. The people in these places ate good quality food but above all they had, over the generations, eaten at least one curry meal a week. Thus, passed down from the mother’s breast was an ‘inoculation” by curcumin carried in the turmeric. (

In the paper, “Curcumin, The Indian Solid Gold” the authors are able to confirm what had been known for centuries, as in the chart below.

Since 1989, Dr. B.B. Aggarwal has been Professor of Cancer Research at the M.D.Anderson Cancer Centre in Houston, Texas. The pioneer of the modern approach to what curcumin is able to do for us, but certainly he is not the only one. Papers confirming these findings are coming out of Ireland, Germany, China, india on a now fairly steady basis, covering all types of cancer, including the recent Chinese report of their healing supposedly “incurable” breast tumours with curcumin. They are too multifarious to cite here but if you would like any on a specific item, please contact me through, when I will do my best to oblige. (Dr. Aggarwal sent me a list the other day that seems to cover almost every type of ailment.)
