Today’s article caught my eye because I was looking into research into herbs and spices. I have taken curcumin capsules in the past as a course to test for side effects before recommending to a client. It has been used as a traditional Indian medicinal treatment for centuries and is know for its anti-inflammatory and high anti-oxidant actions on the body. Both these effects help combat a number of common health issues such as heart disease, arthritis, cancer, depression and the long term health of the brain, specifically Alzheimer’s disease.Whilst I am a firm believer in alternative therapies, you cannot make claims for natural medicines without it going through extensive research. However, as this article reveals even the medicial profession and also researchers are fairly confident the self-administered curcumin treatment by Dieneke Ferguson was the reason behind her remission from cancer.
