Harper, you are a wealth of information. Thank you so much!
No offense, but why would you buy that as capsules for about 60 bucks when you can just use Turmeric as a spice on a regular basis (curries) for a fraction of that price...?
I wouldn't. I get them on sale. There is also more of an active ingredient, curcumin, in this form which you don't get in the natural form of Turmeric.
The capsules are more convenient if you take them three times a day or you are not home. Also, I wouldn't want to eat curry every day.
That's true, I give you that. It is more convenient and you probably won't sweat curry taking those.
for those of you who are dealing with, or may be dealing with Cancer, do a search for "Bloodroot" or "Black Salve"...
Our family, and many others nowadays, have been using it for many years......
one acquaintance had terminal prostate cancer....(Dr. told him to go home and die), ...found out about Bloodroot, took it,
and is alive and well 10 years later.....wife's used it, I've used it.......
I came across this site about chaga and its effectiveness as a cancer cure/preventative. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center no less.... https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/integrative-medicine/herbs/chaga-mushroom
Chaga extract not chaga tea though. Apparently the cancer fighting properties are not water soluble. Also chaga isn't commercially viable to farm as it wont have these chemicals unless grown on live birch trees
That sounds delicious.
In Chaga tea both the pith and the bark and weather boiled or steeped have different properties as to how they interact with different organs and skin conditions.
I suspect if/when/hopefully the entire world will take the profit out if peoples' health we will see a BUNCH more cures and cheap/easy treatments for many MANY ailments hit the market and get proper medical documentation rather then just, "I heard someone say their relative had a friend who ate XYZ to cure their disease."
Don't confuse "natural" with "safe". Deathcap mushrooms, red tide shellfish, pufferfish toxin and ricin are plenty natural but I wouldn't eat them.
This is a very interesting subject. I am reminded of a TED Talk by Paul Stamets (who runs a company called FungiPerfecti which sells medical mushrooms under the brand name Host Defense) about the medicinal (anti-tumor, anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-bacterial) properties of different mushrooms. There are a few TED talks that he has done, and one focused on a study done on Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) and its specific curative properties for Breast Cancer. Very informative talks:

Paul Stamets TEDMed Talk (Turkey Tail and Breast Cancer covered):
Thought this might be relevant. There was an Australian woman who claimed to have cured her cancer naturally. She has now admitted that it was all a lie, and is being sued.
I feel bad for the people who were following her proposed regimen, trusting that she was telling the truth.
I read that this morning.
It's unfortunate that there people who profit off the suffering of others. This is an example of an individual. Unfortunately, it goes far beyond individuals.
IMO, eating wholesome food is a great help. But promoting it by this type of deception is unacceptable. She'll probably get off with a slap on the wrist because she is cute.
However, his doesn't mean that there are not natural products which can help.
My Sister-in-Law tried treating her Diabetes with herbal/holistic medicine. After 16 months, she had two toes, then the other three on her left foot amputated. Then four months ago, her right foot was amputated mid-shin. She claims that she can feel the herbs working. She also claims that she's lost weight because of the herbal treatment. I don't know what five toes and half a leg weigh, but she just may be right about the weight loss. She still refused to take insulin.
Smart girl! Hardly anyone in the family can stand her, so she's just fading away, one chunk at a time.
This is an update on one of my previous posts.
Today was a good day!
I went with the relative of mine that I spoke about in Post #33 to see a surgeon regarding a problem with that person's pancreas. Since I last wrote about this, my relative has had a DNA test, more blood work and another CAT scan of the area.
There was no cancer present.
The size of the cyst was reduced by half.
There were still abnormalities present which might--or might not-- turn cancerous at some point in the future. Even if the worst should occur, it is typically a question of years with this kind of thing--not weeks or months.
Because of age and other factors, the surgeon recommended no surgery in this case. If I am any judge of character, he appeared to do so rather reluctantly. That surgery would have involved the removal of a portion of the pancreas and the removal of a perfectly healthy spleen.
He recommended that we continue to monitor things going forward.
The only things that the individual was taking during these intervening months were the herbs that I described in Post #33. No treatment was prescribed by the doctors since things were still in the diagnostic phase. But they were all pretty sure--but not 100% positive--that it was cancer. It wasn't--and the cyst is shrinking. Make of that what you will.
It may have been the hand of the Lord, His healing herbs or some combination of the two. I don't know. I'm simply grateful.
Thank you to all who have offered prayers on behalf of my family.
Today was a good day!
I just posted an article on Cayenne and Cancer here:
Spices That Can Serve Multiple Purposes
I am told that one's PH has a great deal to do with cancer and correcting that PH can in some cases reverse it.
Certain foods turn ascetic , and this messes with one's PH making them a host for cancer issues.
I am told too that taking baking soda will work toward fighting cancer.
Some report that injecting baking soda next to tumors causes them to shrink and disappear ,as cancers depend on an ascetic environment. .
I just posted information on an interview which discusses how Turmeric, when used in combination with certain pharmaceuticals is having a tremendous success rate on certain of the most aggresive types of cancer.
In my opinion, it is definitely worth listening to.
This is an article about the Graviola plant. I have no personal experience with it whatsoever. It sounds very promising--provided the herb is allowed to be used. However, there is no money in herbs for the drug companies (especially if they replace high priced existing drugs)--and they bought politicians, the AMA, etc. long ago.
Obviously this is just an article, but, some studies were cited in the text for those who want to research it deeper.
From the article:
The preceding information was presented for educational purposes. It is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, treat, heal, cure, etc. Consult a physician for medical problems.
It's a damn shame I feel it necessary to even say this.
Always remember, ladies and gentlemen, health people are not profitable. Further, you CANNOT patent a naturally occurring substance.
This lends credibility to some of the posts made on this thread. If pharmaceutical companies can't make outrageous profits, either through ridiculous prices or government subsidies, they aren't interested and have it banned, if that substance is found to be effective. I recommend "World Without Cancer", by: G. Edward Griffin, for anyone whose interested in the story of cancer, and the industry surrounding it, in this country. Yes these natural treatments are expensive, but that is only because insurance companies won't pay for it. Some legitimate cancer treatment centers, such as Sanoviv.com, offer treatment, out of the country because they use treatments that are illegal in this country. It's a real shame because I have seen the human cost that this disease exacts. Keep looking for cures, not treatments, because the philosophy of Western "medicine" is symptom attenuation, not cure(s).
I put an excellent article on Turmeric in this post:
This seemed like a good place to mirror it.
Testimonials and case studies are not reliable evidence.
Pervasive logical fallacies compound the problem.
Your attitude might be different if you, or a loved one, had cancer.
You presume fallacies in logic that are both pervasive and compounding.
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. Not enough evidence? Really? There are "modern" ongoing studies which, if they ever see the light of day (cancer is big money), will likely provide the level of rigor you require. The fact that the case study reported in the article made it into the British Medical Journal is huge.
The quote contained in this post was based on a study conducted at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (both "modern" and "western"):
I'd invite you to look into Turmeric further. You will be surprised.
I have had multiple loved ones with cancer.
And I said nothing about turmeric.
I simply made two general, factual statements.
(Ah, @Harper, I see. The proximity of my post below yours had you mistakenly (but understandably) thinking I was responding to you. I was not.
As an aside, this is a good example of the logical fallacy post hoc ergo propter hoc -- after this, therefore because of this. But correlation is not causality. And this particular logical fallacy rears its head frequently when people make claims about treatment efficacy.)
THANK YOU Harper. At least your open to reality.
There is nothing in the world that doesnt also have a cure within the world. And I dont mean a.....pharmacy.
