If you’ve ever questioned the true effectiveness of turmeric, just ask Dieneke Ferguson. She would tell you without a doubt just how powerful and life-changing this spice can be.
Dieneke was diagnosed with blood cancer myeloma at 67 years old back in 2007. This form of cancer is typically fatal, killing nearly 3,000 people a year in the UK. In attempt to combat it, she took on three rounds of chemotherapy along with 4 stem cell transplants. She experienced nothing but pain and relapse throughout this process.
After the repeated failure of the aggressive treatment she was receiving, she decided to give something new a try, something a bit unconventional, something that became her last resort – she started taking 8 grams of curcumin a day (the active ingredient in turmeric).
Today, Dieneke’s cancer is nowhere to be found and she is now the proud owner of Hidden Art, a not-for-profit business helping artists market their work.
She said, “I hope my story will lead to more people finding out about the amazing health benefits of curcumin.”
We wanted to help spread her story by sharing it here and shed some brighter light on just what sort of power mother nature provides us just through turmeric alone.
Turmeric is an ancient spice that’s most commonly used for flavoring and adding a golden kick to a number of dishes. Curcumin – the active ingredient – is becoming known more and more for its inflammation-reducing and antioxidant abilities, as well as its disease-fighting tendencies. Needless to say, it’s definitely more than just a simple kick in the taste buds.
Fun fact: when you add black pepper to turmeric, the piperine ingredient in the pepper (black pepper’s active ingredient) makes curcumin 2000% more bioavailable, meaning it becomes even more effective and easy for your body to absorb.
