A British woman claims to have miraculously beaten blood cancer just by consuming a popular Indian spice. After being given few chances of recovery, the 68-year-old woman defied the doctors by not only surviving, but living a healthy life for more than ten years after receiving the diagnosis. The miracle treatment was based on curcumin, a component of turmeric.
The woman wasn’t given many survival chances
In 2007, Dieneke Ferguson was diagnosed with myeloma, a severe type of cancer. She had to undergo a severe course of chemotherapy and, when this didn’t work, she received four transplants with stem cells. In 2011, the cancer relapsed, and doctors told her there wasn’t anything they could do.
Almost seven years have passed since then, and the woman is better than never. She decided she couldn’t give up fighting for her life, so she embraced an alternative treatment based on turmeric. The treatment consisted of daily tablets containing 8 g of curcumin, a compound found in the Indian spice. She had had enough with toxic chemicals and drugs, and the natural supplement actually fought the cancer better.
She leads a healthy life after consuming the turmeric component
Doctors are amazed at the recovery Ferguson made. She started taking the turmeric component around her third relapse, without receiving any treatment based on strong chemicals. Instead of further advancing, the myeloma regressed. The woman’s health condition didn’t alter, and she spent her past seven years in a good health state.
Therefore, doctors decided to study how effective curcumin can be against myeloma, and cancer in general. They discovered the treatment could truly be miraculous for some patients, but it might not work universally. For other people suffering from cancer, it can have little to no effect.
Curcumin has a long history of being used as medicine. Indians extracted it from turmeric a long time ago, and they had kept using it to treat all kinds of conditions. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and can work as an analgesic.
