Brain Tumor and Curcumin

Monday, 23 April 2012 08:02 AM

Question: I am a 70-year-old female who was diagnosed with a mass suspicious for petroclivalmeningioma on the brain stem. Would the olive oil/curcumin protocol help?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

A meningioma is a type of tumor that originates in the meninges, which are membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Petroclival meningiomas are located in a part of the brain called the petroclival junction, near the base of the skull.

At age 70, meningiomas often grow very slowly and can be monitored using repeated MRI scans. In some cases, these meningiomas do not grow at all.

Discuss all of this with your neurosurgeon and see if they would be willing to repeat your MRI in six months to get a better idea of the tumor’s growth rate.

Curcumin, as well as other flavonoids (resveratrol, white tea, hesperidin, quercetin, and ellagic acid), can slow tumor growth and protect the brain. Magnesium is also very protective.
