Curcumin Helps Chemotherapy

Monday, 10 September 2012 08:41 AM

Question: I had stage 1 stomach cancer, which was removed by surgery. Now my doctor wants me to undergo chemotherapy. Can taking curcumin during chemo help with the side effects?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
Oncologists need to start reading the scientific literature concerning antioxidants and chemotherapy. Most antioxidants, such as vitamin E, the carotenoids and flavonoids do not interfere with these treatments — rather, they make them safer and more effective. This is especially true for curcumin, quercetin, ellagic acid, white tea, and grape seed extract.
I have written a number of newsletters on cancer as well as a book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients," which will answer most of your questions.
