Curcumin vs. Multiple Myeloma: The scientific evidence continues to pile up

“We observed that curcumin cell death induction was heterogeneous, of note 16 Human Myeloma Cell Lines were highly sensitive to curcumin…”

I am both a multiple myeloma (MM) survivor and MM cancer coach. I have been researching and writing about multiple myeloma for years. I can honestly say that MM patients and survivors must learn about and employ both conventional (FDA approved) and evidence-based non-conventional therapies if they are to manage their “incurable” blood cancer.

Curcumin is one of the best examples of an evidence-based non-conventional cancer therapy. The applications of this wonder therapy are too many to write about (but scroll down to read what Dr. Sukumar has to say).

Suffice to say that if you have been diagnosed with cancer, any cancer, you must learn about possible applications of this therapy to help you in the weeks, months and years ahead. In the age of super high tech oncology it is critical to learn about non-toxic therapies such as curcumin.

I supplement with Life Extension Super Bio Curcumin as this formula and brand are approved both for purity and bioavailability.

Curcumin induces cell death of the main molecular myeloma subtypes, particularly the poor prognosis subgroups.

“In the present study, a large panel of human myeloma cell lines (HMCLs) (n = 29), representing the main molecular MM subgroups, was screened for curcumin sensitivity. We observed that curcumin cell death induction was heterogeneous, of note 16 HMCLs were highly sensitive to curcumin and only 7 HMCLs were weakly sensitive.

Cell lines harboring the t(11;14) translocation were less sensitive (median LD50 32.9 μM) than non-t(11;14) (median LD50 17.9 μM), which included poor prognosis t(4;14) and t(14;16) cells.

Interestingly, curcumin sensitivity was not dependent on TP53 status. For the first time we showed that primary myeloma cells were also sensitive, even those displaying del(17p), another poor prognosis factor.

Altogether, these results support clinical trials including curcumin in association with standard therapy.”

Curcumin vs. cancer: The scientific evidence continues to flow in

“There is definitely no shortage of scientific evidence these days to show that curcumin, the believed-to-be primary active ingredient in the spice turmeric, holds incredible therapeutic value, and just might be the most advisable medicinal spice of our day…

Johns Hopkins doctor says this is the most powerful anti-cancer spice

“Dr. Saraswati Sukumar, from Johns Hopkins, has been studying curcumin for many years. The primary active ingredient in the spice turmeric, says Dr. Sukumar, is arguably the most potent anti-cancer nutrient in existence…

As many as 25% of all cancers have a direct link to chronic inflammation. That means keeping your systemic inflammation to a minimum is a powerful way to prevent this life-threatening disease.

But curcumin doesn’t just target inflammation-related cancers. Other research shows that it also targets malignant cancer cells and alters their regulation of DNA. This causes the cancer cells to die. And, unlike chemotherapy, curcumin doesn’t harm healthy cells and DNA. So there aren’t any negative side effects…

Of course, curcumin doesn’t just fight cancer. I showed you a few weeks ago how it can prevent heart attacks. But that’s still just the tip of the iceberg. This nutrient is one power-packed spice. It also “reduces blood cholesterol levels, prevents low-density lipoprotein oxidation, inhibits platelet aggregation, suppresses thrombosis and myocardial infarction, suppresses symptoms associated with Type II diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease; inhibits HIV replication, suppresses tumor formation, enhances wound healing, protects against liver injury, increases bile secretion, protects against cataract formation, and protects against pulmonary toxicity and fibrosis,” explains Dr. Sukumar.”
