Effects and Benefits of Turmeric, Curcumin and Curry Powder


To Traditional Ayurvedics, Turmeric is seen as an excellent natural antibiotic, while at the same time it strengthens digestion and helps improve intestinal flora. As such it is a good anti-bacterial for those chronically weak or ill.
 It‘s not only purifies the blood, but also warms it and stimulates formation of new blood tissue. Turmeric gives the energy of the divine mother and grants prosperity. It is effective for cleansing the chakras (nadi-shodhana), purifying thechannels of the subtle body. It helps stretch the ligaments and is, therefore, good for the practice of hatha yoga. Turmeric promotes proper metabolism in the body, correcting both excesses and deficiencies. It aids in the digestion of protein. Externally, it can be used with honey for sprains, strains, bruise or itch. It is tonic to the skin, for which purpose it can be taken internally as a milk decoction. Turmeric is aromatic and a stimulant and has many helpful functions. It is bitter, slightly pungent and a good blood purifier, and works as a tonic to aid digestion and relieve congestion. It has a soothing action on respiratory ailments such as cough and asthma. It also is antiarthritic and acts as a natural anti-bacterial. Turmeric may be added to high-protein food to assist digestion and prevent the formation of gas. It is effectively used to maintain the flora of the large intestine.
In animal studies and in one human trial published in 1992, turmeric also showed promise in lowering cholesterol levels and fighting atherosclerosis, a buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries that can lead to heart attack. Preliminary tests even indicate that curcumin can inhibit the replication of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. More research in this area is clearly needed before any specific recommendations can be made.

Today, turmeric is widely recommended for myriad diseases, from stomach ulcers and skin infections to eye conditions (such as chronic anterior uveitis). ... when it‘s applied as a paste, it may well eliminate scabies, an itchy skin condition caused by parasitic mites.

In laboratory and small animal studies, curcumin has been found to hinder the growth of errant cells associated with cancer of the breast, skin, and colon, as well as lymphoma. In a small but interesting 1992 clinical trial of 16 cigarette smokers, those taking 1.5 grams of turmeric a day for 30 days had a significantly lower level of mutagens (in the urine) than a control group consisting of six nonsmokers.

    
Turmeric spice could have cured pancreatic cancer that killed Steve Jobs, suggests oncologist

Thursday, October 27, 2011 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Though it has the highest mortality rate of all forms of cancer, pancreatic cancer is largely preventable and treatable through simple dietary and lifestyle changes, says Dr. Robert Wascher, MD, a surgical oncologist from California. In a recent interview with Newsmax Health Wascher explained how the simple act of consuming turmeric, a natural spice popular in Asian and Indian food, may be enough to prevent and cure the type of pancreatic cancer that afflicted former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, as well as other forms.

"It's a dismal, deadly disease," Wascher is quoted as saying to Newsmax Health. Wascher is author of the book A Cancer Prevention Guide for the Human Race. "But like other forms of cancer, up to 65 percent can be prevented by relatively modest diet and lifestyle changes."

Pancreatic cancer is very slow to develop, often taking 20 years to grow into a detectable condition. Once it is identified, the conventional cancer industry typically pushes chemotherapy and radiation treatments as a solution, despite the fact that both treatments are completely ineffective apart from surgery. And even when surgery is involved, the cure rate remains at a dismal low five percent.

"Conventional medical and surgical procedures obviously do not cure pancreatic cancer for the vast majority of patients," says Wascher. "So, I think it's reasonable to be a little more open-minded about complementary and alternative therapies when you have tried conventional therapies and have no other options. Both laboratory and clinical studies suggest there are some nutritional therapies that might have an effect on pancreatic cancer."

One such alternative therapy that Wascher often prescribes to his cancer patients is to take turmeric, a powerful anticancer spice that contains curcumin. A Phase II clinical trial conducted at MD Anderson Cancer Center found that turmeric was equal to or better than all currently available US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drugs, except that it does not cause the same negative side effects.

When combined with other powerful nutrients like fish oil, olive oil, or black pepper, turmeric's anticancer effects are even further amplified, as the spice is not very well absorbed by the body on its own. Getting plenty of vitamin D, drinking green tea, and eating cruciferous vegetables will also help to thwart the disease (http://www.naturalnews.com/pancreatic_cancer.html).

Avoiding things like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), aspirin, and processed meats containing nitrates will also help to prevent pancreatic cancer, as each of these has been shown to fuel cancer cell growth.

Dr. Öz'den kanser reçetesi

Ünlü cerrah Dr. Mehmet Öz Kanser Haftası nedeniyle hastalığın farklı türleri için öneriler sundu.
Dr. Özden kanser reçetesi


 Dünyaca ünlü kalp cerrahı Prof. Dr. Mehmet Öz, Kanser Haftası nedeniyle hastalığın farklı türleri için öneriler sundu.

Ailesinde kanser geçmişi olan kişilerin doktor kontrolleri ile gerekli testleri düzenli olarak yaptırmaları gerektiğini ve erken teşhisin çok önemli olduğunu belirten Öz, vücuttaki yağ fazlalığının (obezite), kanser riskini yüzde 30 oranında arttıran etkenlerden biri olduğunu söyledi.

Vatan'ın haberine göre Mehmet Öz, yağın vücutta hormon üreten bir organ gibi kanseri tetikleyici özelliğe sahip olduğunu kaydetti.


Dr. Mehmet Öz’ün önerilerine göre domates, içerdiği yüksek likopen sayesinde karaciğer ve prostat kanseri riskini azaltıyor. Araştırmalar yağ oranı yüksek gıdalar ya da ağırlıklı olarak kırmızı etle beslenen kişilerin prostat, kolon ve pankreas kanserine yakalanma risklerinin daha fazla olduğunu gösterirken; soya, nohut, mercimek ve fıstık gibi isoflavone içeren besinleri tüketmenin de prostat kanseri riskini düşürdüğünü işaret ediyor.

Karaciğer kanserini önlemek için sigaradan ve pasif içicilikten uzak durmak gerekiyor. Ayrıca araba camlarını açık tutmak ve karayollarındaki hava kirliğini solumak da karaciğer kanserine sebep olabiliyor. Dr. Mehmet Öz yakın zamanda yapılan bir araştırmaya göre E vitamini (E 400IUs) desteği alanların da prostat kanserine yakalanma oranının daha yüksek olduğunu belirtiyor ve ekliyor “Beslenmenizde vitaminin önemi büyük, ancak özellikle erkeklere multivitamin seçimlerinde düşük E vitamini olanları tercih etmelerini öneriyorum”.

ERKEN TEŞHİS ÖNEMLİ
Kolon kanserinin erken teşhisi için dışkıda kan olup olmadığını düzenli olarak kontrol etmek gerekiyor. Günlük aspirin tüketimi ve lif yönünden zengin besinler tüketmek kolon kanseriyle mücadeleye yardımcı oluyor. Pankreas kanserine yakalanma riskini azaltmak içinse yağlı kırmızı et ve işlenmiş etten uzak durmak gerekiyor. Akşam yemeklerinize kırmızı ve sarı sebzelerin eklenmesi de büyük önem taşıyor.

GÜNDE 3 BARDAK ÇAY
Dr. Mehmet Öz balık yağı ve omega 3 asitleri (DHA ve EPA) ile günde 3 bardak yeşil çay içmenin meme kanserine yakalanma oranını düşürdüğünü belirtiyor. Haftada en az iki kez indole-3-carbiol maddesi içeren brokoli ve brüksel lahanasını tüketmeyi ihmal etmemek gerekiyor. Cilt kanseri riskini azaltmak için günde iki bardaktan fazla alkol tüketilmemesi, 10-15 dakikadan daha uzun süre güneşe maruz kalınmaması, ayrıca vücuttaki benlerin düzenli olarak kontrol ettirilmesi de önemli unsurlardan biri.

SALAMURADAN UZAK DURUN
Yumurtalık kanserinin erken teşhisi için; idrara çıkma sıklığı, abdomende oluşan ağrı gibi belirtilere dikkat etmek gerekiyor. Beş yılı aşkın süre doğum kontrol hapı kullanan kadınlarda yumurtalık kanseri riski yüzde 50 civarında azalıyor. Çabuk doygunluk hissi, ani kilo kaybı, göğüs kafesi altında hissedilen mide rahatsızlığı mide kanseri belirtilerinin başında yer alıyor.

Dr. Mehmet Öz mide kanserini önlemek için salamura, füme ya da işlenmiş etlerden ve tuzlu, mayalı yiyeceklerden uzak durmak gerektiğini belirtiyor.

Tonia Sotiropoulou cast as Bond girl in ‘Skyfall’

Photo by Tonia Sotiropoupou/FacebookThe upcoming 007 film "Skyfall" has a new Bond girl: Tonia Sotiropoulou.
If you don't know her now, you will soon enough. The Greek model-actress announced the casting on her Facebook page. "Dear friends I officially announce I got a part in J. Bond new film!!! Turkey here I come! Thank u all for you love and support! This is officially the happiest day of my life b******!!!!"
James Bond fan site MI6 broke the news. According to the site, Sotiropoulou originally auditioned for the part of "Severine," but she lost the role to French actress Berenice Marlohe. Apparently she made enough of an impression to come back in another role. Naomie Harris will play another Bond girl, Eve, while Oscar winnerJavier Bardem will play the baddie bent on (what else?) world domination.
Near as we can tell, this will be Sotiropoulou's first big-time flick. And she is justifiably excited. Again, according to MI6, she spoke about her happiness with the Greek press. "This is the happiest day of my life so far! I feel very lucky and blessed, but basically, I am very grateful that this happened, for my family and my friends who believe in me and support trying to do. I will do the best. I am very proud because somehow it might be something that will advertise in Greece and I am happy about it."
Sony, the studio distributing the movie, had no comment on the subject.
Not much is known about "Skyfall," but expectations for the third Daniel Craig Bond flick are high. Directed by Oscar winner Sam Mendes ("American Beauty"), the film has come under fire forhaving Bond drink a Heineken beer instead of a vodka martini.
He can wiggle his way out of laser prisons and jump from crashing planes, but not even 007 can escape the most dastardly villain of all -- product placement.

VICTORY,BOND ANDRE RIEU
