Turmeric: Medicinal, Cancer, Bacteria Cure

  1. 1. Curcuma longa Curcuma domestica Tumeric for Cancer Reduction Zingiberaceae family
  2. 2. About the PlantAbout the Plant  Perennial  Relative of Ginger  Trumpet shape, dull yellow flowers  Can grow 5-6 feet  Native to South Asia. Often grown in India, Nepal and China.
  3. 3. Active Ingredient:Active Ingredient: CurcuminCurcumin  The root and rootstock, or rhizome, of the plant contain the active ingredient.   3%-5% of the root has active ingredient1  It is an antioxidant  Studies have been done with 3.5-10 grams to inhibit and prevent cancer cell growth1  Anti-inflammatory effects have been shown to be comparable to the potent drugs hydrocortisone and phenylbutazone as well as over-the-counter anti- inflammatory agents such as Motrin
  4. 4. Curcumin ExtractionCurcumin Extraction 66  Plant is grown  Rhizome harvested  Solvent is created using polar solvent (acetone, methanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate)  To remove color:  Freeze  Centrifuge or vacuum filtration  Purified with a hexane wash
  5. 5. Cancer PreventionCancer Prevention  Neutralizes substances and conditions that cause cancer. 3  Helps cells retain integrity if infected by carcinogen. 3  Curcumin can destroy tumor growth. 1,3  Possibly inhibits synthesis of protein that causes tumor growth and preventing development of additional blood supply necessary for cell growth.1  Tumors of esophagus, mouth, intestines, stomach, breast and skin  In animal testing, cancer growth is slowed, inhibited and mass reduced1  Can inhibit enzyme growth of Topoisomerase.3  Topoisomerase works within the nucleus of the cell, where it first binds to supercoiled DNA and then catalyzes the passage of one DNA helix through another via a transient double- stranded break. This splits the DNA and thus allows cell replication to occur. Stopping Topoisomerase stops replication which stops the spread of the problem.4  Natural COX-2 inhibitor3  Block an enzyme called cyclooxygenase-2. This is beneficial because the COX-2 enzyme helps make carcinogens more active in the body and allows cancerous cells to survive by growing new blood vessels. 5  Colon cells protected from free radical that damage DNA because of curcumin's antioxidant actions.3
  6. 6. Effects on the BodyEffects on the Body  Stimulates galbladder  Stimulates circulatory system  Reduces cholesterol levels  Dissolves blood clots  Stops external and internal bleeding  Relieves painful menstration and angina  Remedy for IBS, colitis, Chron’s disease  Reduces illness from toxins and parasites and bacteria  Curcumin enhances liver function
  7. 7. Effects on the BodyEffects on the Body  In colon, cells turn over ever 3 days, making this a high risk for cancer cell reproduction.1  When used in combination with phenethyl isothiocyanate (found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, kolhrabi and turnips) reduced tumor growth and the ability of prostate cancer cells to spread in test animals.  Nagabhushan has shown that the curcumin in turmeric can2 :  inhibit the mutagenicity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) (carcinogenic chemicals created by the burning of carbon based fuels including cigarette smoke)  inhibit radiation-induced chromosome damage  prevent the formation of harmful heterocyclic amines and nitroso compounds, which may result in the body when certain processed foods, such as processed meat products that contain nitrosamines, are eaten  irreversibly inhibit the multiplication of leukemia cells in a cell culture
  8. 8. Drug InformationDrug Information Available Forms (dose)  Root or rhizome (1.5-3 g/day)  Traditional Powder (often used for cooking) (1-3g per day)  Capsuels containing standardized powder (400-600mg, 3 times per day)  Fluid extract (antibacterial oil) (1:1 30-90 drops/day)  Tincture (1:2 15-30 drops 4 times/day)  Topical (as needed)  Bromelain (from pineapples) often used in combination  Turmeric or Curcumin with Cruciferous Vegetables or their sprouts is very effective. Drug Interactions  Blood thinning medications  Warfarin (Coumadin)  Clopidogrel (Plavix)  Aspirin  Drugs that reduce stomach acid  Cimetidine (Tagamet)  Famotidine (Pepcid)  Ranitidine (Zantac)  Esomeprazole (Nexium)  Omeprazole  Lansoprazole (Prevacid)  Diabetes medication  Make effects stronger – lowering blood sugar
  9. 9. Additional ResearchAdditional Research OpportunitiesOpportunities 1. Holistic health studies on nutrition and cancer prevention. 2. Food combinations and maximum cancer prevention. 3. HIV and AIDS reduction research. 4. Holistic plant treatment vs. curcumin use (whole rizome versus extract). 5. Other ways to extract curcumin. 6. Reducing impact of cancer causing external influences.
  10. 10. Other UsesOther Uses  Rheumatoid Arthritis  Cystic Fibrosis Sufferers  Alzheimer's  Stomach Ulcers  Studied to prevent ‘bad cholesterol’  Used to improve kidney transplants  Pain relief  Food preservation  Toothache  Bruises  Lower Cholesterol  500 mg of curcumin taken for 7 days with a oxidized cholesterol drop of 33% in blood, with total cholesterol drop of 11% and HDL increased by 29% 2  Interferes with some viruses: Hepititus  HIV Inhibition  When HIV cells were fed in a laboratory in Bangalor, India, cells stopped reproducing. Harvard Medical School Study showed that curcumin blocked a specific gene that activates virus and causes it to spread. Antimicrobial properties protect maleffects from HIV (NPD in Vermont). 3  Flatulence  Jaundice  Menstrual difficulties  Bloody urine  Hemorrhage  Chest pain  Colic
  11. 11. 20 reasons to add turmeric20 reasons to add turmeric to your diet:to your diet: 1. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns. 2. When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer. 3. Prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice. 4. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide. 5. Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia. 6. Is a natural liver detoxifier. 7. May prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease by removing amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain. 8. May prevent metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer. 9. It is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects. 10. Has shown promise in slowing the progression of multiple sclerosis in mice. 11. Is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor. 12. May aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management. 13. Has long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for depression. 14. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 15.
