BENEFITS OF TURMERIC: POSTS FROM MY READERS

I am a woman almost 60 yrs. old who has suffered from RA since 31 yrs. of age. I was taking 2 x-strength ibuprofen daily for over 20 yrs. until recently, when a doctor told me I should stop. I didn’t know it, but long term use of ibuprofen, can cause severe insomnia (which I had), as well as a host of other problems, and since quitting taking it about 4 weeks ago, I’ve been sleeping like a baby! 🙂 But of course, my pain has got a lot worse, so I started making myself a special smoothie every day for lunch, which helps a ‘lot’! I put one banana, about 3/4 c. f.f. plain yogurt, 1/2 c. frozen cranberries and about 1 c. of frozen mixed fruit, (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries) together with 1/2 – 1 tsp. of powdered turmeric, 1 tsp. of fresh chopped ginger, 1 tsp. of cinnamon, and mix it all up in my blender and voila! Delicious, and after drinking it every day since stopping the ibuprofen, my pain is minimal. I know it’s the smoothies too that help, because if I don’t make myself one for 1 or 2 days, I can really feel it!



Last year, I had severe pain in a shoulder joint that limited my range of motion and kept me from sleeping through the night. This went on for months. After researching the benefits of turmeric, I purchased turmeric powder from an Indian store and added approximately 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of turmeric, along with black pepper and a bit of coconut oil, to my food daily. After several days, I noticed that the pain was lessening. Now? Still no pain. Amazing. Turmeric remains part of my daily diet. Forever.


For five weeks have been taking 2 ml daily of Purathrive (fka Nutritive) Liposomal Turmeric Extract, which just came on the market early this year. It has cleared up my perennial/allergic rhinitis and eliminated the need for previously scheduled surgery. Also, it has improved my memory slightly and almost eliminated my chronic heartburn.


Ruth Hi – I have an article from John Hopkins Hospital on how to adjust your diet to potentially ‘starve out’ cancer cells. Dr.keyur Patel’s photo.

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …
[Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins ]
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

The Lazarus Cure

One day my friend Jake hopped onto his bicycle and, like he had done many times before, my good friend and "weekend warrior" entered himself into a long-distance racing event. 

The event was to last seven days. But Jake never made it to the end of the first day. 

He suffered a massive heart attack and died before reaching the hospital. 

He was 63 years of age. 

When I heard the news I was as shocked as anyone. 

I am no stranger to death, but when someone with vitality is suddenly snatched away like this it is a sombre reminder that no-one is immune to the laws of biology, and that we take our fate in our hands every single day that we take our health for granted.

I do not know what killed Jake that day. Many factors might have contributed. Stress, diet, high blood pressure coupled with poor medical intervention, or none at all... Who knows? But I can say two things with some degree of certainty. 

The first is that despite the apparent "out of the blue" nature of his death…

WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN VIRILY

Hello, My name Andre’ Hartslief, I believe that In life, there are no justified resentments. So, we as the advanced species, need to learn to emulate the animal kingdom by getting past blame.In removing blame from our lives, we take a firm stance against assigning responsibility to anyone else for what we are experiencing at any given point.  Silence is a good place to start, for in silence we discover our oneness and also the Creator’s indivisibility. We need to urgently make conscious contact with the Almighty and one way is to embrace silence in the face of adversity and another way is to write about it on VIRILY.COM.  Opening a channel where all who need spiritual solace can read and be comforted. If you have a selfless passion to assist and advise other like-minded individuals, you will be welcomed by a vastly growing community of likened individuals and a friendly, highly responsive staff like Natalie who will assist and guide you in ways of reaching a maximum readership for yo…
