A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported.
Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on gruelling treatments that failed to stop it.
Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments.
With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day one of the main compounds in turmeric.
The cancer, which has an average survival of just over five years, was causing increasing back pain and she had already had a second relapse.
But it stabilised after Mrs Ferguson, from north London, came across the remedy on the internet in 2011 and decided to try it as a last resort.
The tablets are expensive £50 for ten days but as kitchen turmeric contains just 2 per cent curcumin it would be impossible to eat enough to get the same dose.

Once again The Daily Mail proves that it is the worst edited rag on two continents. She didn’t scarf down yellow turmeric by the spoonful, she plunked down fifty Pounds a week for tablets made of a different substance.
I’ve been using Turmeric too.
I think it is great
I have a side effect that it swells up the side of my face (lymph nodes?)
I’ve have had mixed results with tumeric supplements myself.
Pills or natural?................
I’ve read of many benefits of curcumin. I know it is a very effective anti-inflammatory which is good for blood pressure and the heart. As I understand it, the primary ingredient blocks cancer cells from being able to absorb energy from sugar. In effect, it causes them starve and die while not impacting healthy cells. But I’m not a doctor. This is just what I’ve seen in my casual research.
Pills. I am not sure which brand. There is a big difference - some brands have very poor quality.
I think it is “Nature’s Made” brand that is good.
That’s interesting. It could be that it just limits the overall uptake rate of energy - since cancer cells burn/reproduce more rapidly than normal cells they starve to death....
What really could be interesting is I could see it having an added benefit in relation to diabetes for those taking in too much sugar. I wonder if that has been looked at at all.
Cancer cells cant manufacture their own glucose from protein as the rest of the body normally can. It stands to reason that an ultra low carb and anti inflammatory diet would kick ass on it.
It may contain some seafood coloring or filler ingredients that are causing you to have an allergic reaction.
Read the label and Check with your doctor for an allergy test.....................
“As opposed to hundreds of thousands with other treatments? Who writes this shit.”
My first thought too. Hell, I’ll give some Brits that money for treatment...if they agree to support Brexit, that is.
What type of turmeric do you think is best?
“The tablets are expensive £50 for ten days”
It’s the common thinking for the “beneficiaries” of socialized medicine.
- £50 for tablets is expensive because the patient has to pay it herself.
- Cancer treatment which cost hundred thousands of $ (if you have the chance to get it) is not expensive because it’s payed by the government, ie by everybody else.
Can’t say. There is no ‘true’ pure brand, since the FDA does not monitor herbal supplements for strength or purity of ingredients.
Maybe some Euro brand that has tighter controls on the supplement market.......
That seems really expensive. Amazon has a much better deal.
I take tumeric daily for my osteoarthritis. We buy organic tumeric online by the pound and put it in gelcaps. I have not taken advil in over a year. It works like a charm and is supposed to deter cancer.
I will have to try that.....................
Same here. Its seems to raise my heart rate.
Give the tumeric about two weeks and your arthritis pain should pretty much be gone. I take one gelcap per day in warm weather and two per day in winter.
