Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.
INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017
Well its Wednesday again,
Happy hump day, being true to anyone else or anything else is not impossible, but the mark of a fake person. The questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change.
You teach best what most need to be learned. Live never to be ashamed if anything you do or say is published around the world even if what is published is not true.
Your friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.
The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, I’ve got responsibilities. The up above words of wisdom is from the book ILLUSIONS.
Today the blogging will continue on curcumin and turmeric - INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017.
I’ll first give you information on medical grade curcumin, which is what Dan and I received during our treatments in Mexico. Cancer is an inflammatory condition that also requires immune modulation; curcumin helps to fight inflammation caused by cancer and balance the immune response.
Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid of the popular Indian spice turmeric, which is a member of the ginger family. Turmeric has been used historically as a component of Ayurvedic medicine since the 18th century to treat ailments.
It wasn’t until the later half of the 20th century that research identified curcumin as responsible for most of the biological activity of turmeric.
Vitro and animal studies have suggested a wide range of potential therapeutic or preventive effects associated with curcumin. In the past several years a proliferation of human clinical trails has studied the effect of curcumin on pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s and other diseases.
Research has demonstrated that curcumin as well as capsaicin (found in red pepper) inhibit the secretion of collagenase, elastase and hyaluronidase. Clearly this indicates that these spice components control the release of inflammatory mediators such as eicosanoids and hydrolytic enzymes secreted by macrophages, which suggest anti-inflammatory properties.
Arachidonic acid is one of the essential fatty acids required by most mammals. The metabolism of arachidonic acid in cell membranes plays an important role in the fighting inflammation in the body, which occurs by generating a potent chemical messenger known as eicosanoids.
Membrane phospholipids are hydrolyzed by phospholipase A2, releasing arachidonic acid; which may be metabolized by cyclooxygenases. From prostaglandins and thromboxane’s, Curcumin has been found to inhibit phospholipase A2, cyclooxygenases and lipoxygenases activities in cultured cells.
Although, curcumin inhibited the catalytic activity of lipoxygenases directly, it inhibited phospholipase A2 by preventing its phosphorylation and cyclooxygenases mainly by inhibiting its transcription.
Nuclear factor-kappa B is a transcription factor that binds DNA and enhances the transcription of the cyclooxygenase’s gene as well as other pro-inflammatory genes; such as inducible nitric oxide synthase.
In inflammatory cells, such as macrophages - inducible nitric oxide synthase catalyzes the synthesis of nitric oxide. This can react with superoxide to form peroxynitrite, a reactive nitrogen species that can damage proteins and DNA.
Curcumin has been found to inhibit NF-kB dependent gene transcription; induction of cyclooxygenases and inducible nitric oxide synthase in cell culture and animal studies.
The bottom line is, curcumin is an antioxidant; which are compounds often found in plants that can protect the bodies cells from damage caused by activated molecules known as free radicals. Laboratory studies have also shown that curcumin interferes with several important molecular pathways.

Good morning 🌅 it's already the middle of the week- so close your eyes to old ends and open your heart to new beginnings. Have a great day 🏞️
What it boils down to is; curcumin develops its anti-inflammatory action by inhibiting the enzyme cyclooxygenases, lipoxygenases and no synthase.
It improves cellular resistance to oxidative damages and effectively protects against DNA damage. These two factors promote aging processes and toxic stress.
In addition, it is shown that curcumin increases the glutathione S-transferase and cytochrome P450 activity in the liver, which improves the response to environmental and metabolic stressors.
Reminder; as I blog about vitamins and other substance concerning cancer and prevention; my quest is to gear you to seek a professional in functional medicine.
The reason is, they are experts in reading lab work to see what you are lacking and also will help you get to the root of your condition.
Curcumin is one of Dan’s and my home program. I have been taking two capsules twice a day for ten years.
You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self. Don’t turn away from possible futures before you’re certain you don’t have anything to learn from them.
