Turmeric For Tumors? And, where can I get really good Flax Oil?

Written by Wellness Club on February 7, 2008 – 5:12 pm -

John had written us a year ago asking about treatment options for his acoustic neuroma, saying that he had been given the options of surgery or radiation by conventional medicine, and did not like either of those choices. I wrote back then to say: “There is a third option for your neuroma, and that is to do nothing – to leave it be. An acoustic neuroma is a benign lesion and quite slow growing, so unless it is causing some sort of problem, for example if it has grown large enough to compress other structures it is usually best left alone. As you note, neither surgery or radiation are attractive options.” I also mentioned that Turmeric had been receiving some attention recently and said “There is evidence that Turmeric may be useful: new research proved that curcumin, a substance found in tumeric (a food spice), works to reduce brain inflammation and may help stop tumors from growing. There are also some anecdotal positive testimonials from AN patients: “I saw … posts about taking a curcuminoid to help with the light headedness. I’m not sure but as soon as I started taking these, I feel much better.”

John doesn’t say which treatment option he finally decided on, but we got another letter recently from him:

recently i asked about tumors. you sent me something about cummun ? how muc shoud i take ? also where can i get the real honest to goodness linseed oil? Not the crap you find at most places in the Us.

More information about Turmeric (curcumin) can be found on our website – including suggestions for use.

Linseed oil is another name for Flax Seed Oil – a very important supplement for many reasons. John is right – there are a lot of inferior products out there when it comes to Flax Oil. We have a very high quality, very pure product available – find out more about our Flax Seed Oil here. An explanation of the various essential fatty acids, including the Omega-3 fatty acids found in Flax Seed Oil can be found here. An important note about Flax Seed Oil: one of the most valuable components of Flax and Flax Oil is a form of fiber called Lignans; be sure that they are included – not filtered out – in your Flax Seed Oil. If they are included (the oil will be labeled as “High Lignan) be sure to shake the oil well before using as they will settle out otherwise. When the bottle seems “empty” cut it open and you will likely find a dark brown “sludge” in the bottom – these are lignans that have settled out. These can be eaten! In fact, I think they are delicious – and I consider them a special treat that I like to add to my daily Super Shake.
