Curcumin

Hello, Is anyone with stomach cancer taking Curcumin? If so, what brand is the most suitable? A lot of the supplements mentioned increased bioavailability and the necessity of getting into the bloodstream. I wondered whether that mattered in the case of stomach cancer? Also, does anyone know whether it does any shops? Thanks Andrewc

I meant ‘does it do any good’ not ‘shops’!

Hello,

One of my mainstay supplements that I've been taking, non-stop - for over 5 years, has been Turmeric Curcumin with BioPerine.  I'm currently taking 1000mg 2x per day.  It is an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and a number of labarotory studies on cancer cells have shown that it does have  anticancer effects.  I'm still around, and doing great after being stage 4 diagnosed in Oct '12, without ever having surgery.  I've also experimented with and am taking other supplements (all based on my own personal, scientifically-based research).  Not everything works for everyone (at least that's what I've always heard), but I would have to say that it (amongst other things)) has worked for me.

Dear Djthx,

Your story is inspiring and motivational and thank you for sharing. Did you have chemo and what regimen were you on?

Also, other than curcumin, are there other supplements you find that it has worked for you?

My dad just had his surgery but he has denied further treatments. I am letting him try curcumin and reishi. 

Wishing you good health always.

Hello,

Sorry for not responding earlier; I've been very busy, and have so much e-mail that's been piling up.  Thanks for your well wishes. 

I did have 2 years of chemo.  They first gave me about 9 cycles of Folfox (5FU, oxaliplatin, and leucovorin).  I responded to treatment, and my tumor burden was stable.  However, the oxaliplatin had to be discontinued because of the extensive neuropathy that the drug was causing me.

I continued with 5FU and leucovorin for about 4 months, until it became evident that it was no longer working.  So then I began receiving 5FU, leucovorin, and docetaxel.  I was on this regimen for about 10 months, until that stopped working.

Since November 2014, I've been on a combination clinical trial consisting of Ipilimumab and Nivolumab.  I received them concurrently for 4 cycles, and since then I've been receiving nivolumab every 2 weeks.  It was a 2 year trial, but my oncologist obtained authorization to allow me to continue since I continue to respond.  My scans (every 3 weeks) indicate a couple of lymph node involvement.  But they have remained pretty much stable.

I am grateful to God; I am grateful to the universe; I am grateful to the chemo, the immunotherapy drugs, and to my supplements.  I was also taking coriolus PSP mushroom (turkey tail) for a few years.  Aside from that, I take Vit D3, high dose Vit C (sodium ascorbate), magnesium glycinate, among others.  I'm also on metformin, which has been shown to have direct, anti-cancer properties.  I am convinced that our bodies have the ability to heal, if we give our immunse system the proper support. 

There is a website that I highly recommend, where it focuses on studying common medication, which has anti-cancer properties.  It is an excellent reference source:  www.redo-project.org /

I meditate, exercise (I've lost about 45 pounds), and do intermittent fasting (google/youtube fasting+cancer).  Also please youtube high dose vitamin C by Suzanne Humphries and also Thomas Levy the unified theory of all disease.  I also highly suggest you look at:

Please encourage your dad to take supplements; they are vital.  Also, his subconcious needs to be convinced of his being healthy.  Every cell in his body needs to affirm that he is and will remain open for business!

Wishing you and your dad all the best,

Edwin
