“Curcumin was found to exert its anticancer activities in many different types of cancer cells by regulating a variety of signaling pathways”
- 1/2 cup (125 mls/60gms) turmeric powder
- 1 cup water (250 mls) PLUS 1 cup water in reserve, if needed
- 1/3 cup (70 mls) cold pressed Olive or Coconut oil (I also use flaxseed or hemp oil)
- 2-3 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
Place turmeric and water in pan, stirring over gentle heat until you have a thick paste. This should take about 7-10 minutes and you may need to add additional water along the way.
Add the freshly ground pepper and oil AT THE END of cooking. Stir well (a whisk is ideal) to incorporate the oil and allow to cool. The Golden Paste will keep for 2 weeks, refrigerated.
I kept refining my recipe and adding other anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as bee pollen, Ceylon cinnamon and hemp seed oil, to make it easier for me to administer even more goodness and this later became today’s Golden Buddha Paste product.
I offer this information to assist you to gather your thoughts and approach as quickly as you can. It is not medical advice but I've learned a lot and want to be the person that I wish I could have called. Please discuss with your holistic vet.
Good luck and don't give up. Love, Donna x
Until Ruby’s cancer I’d never thought of turmeric beyond delicious curries. But it was THE most recommended natural therapeutic agent when people heard of her cancer challenge. I quickly learned that turmeric is not just a spice, it is one of the most effective natural medicines on the planet.
Curcumin vs Turmeric – What’s the difference?
Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric. The best turmeric has 5% curcumin.
Golden Buddha Paste
Building on the ancient recipe of golden turmeric paste, I developed this special formula for Ruby using the most potent turmeric available and enhanced its natural anti-inflammatory potential by also including the natural soothing compounds of bee pollen and Ceylon (true) cinnamon with hemp seed oil.
Mix a golden dollop into each meal.
Curcumin and Cancer Stem Cells: Curcumin Ηas Asymmetrical Effects on Cancer and Normal Stem Cells – Anticancer Research, Vol 35, Feb 2015. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been shown to be resistant to chemotherap and radiation and therefore metastases from solid tumors, in particular, will re-appear even after initially successful treatments and prolonged periods of complete remission. This study is exciting in that it found curcumin to have a toxic effect on CSCs but no adverse effect on normal stem cells.
Effects and synergy of feed ingredients on canine neoplastic cell proliferation – BMC Veterinary Research, Vol 12, 2016. This study examined five feed ingredients for antiproliferative effects, as well as the interaction with selected chemotherapy treatments, when treating canine neoplastic cell lines in vitro. Screening showed that green tea, turmeric, and rosemary extracts were the most effective. Turmeric extract (TE) was the most potent and exhibited synergy with a rosemary extract. “This combination had an additive or synergistic effect with chemotherapeutic agents at selected concentrations within each cell line.”
Curcumin inhibits cancer progression through regulating expression of microRNAs – Tumor Biology Journal, Feb 2017. “The anti-tumor activities of curcumin include inhibition of tumor proliferation, angiogenesis, invasion and metastasis, induction of tumor apoptosis, increase of chemotherapy sensitivity, and regulation of cell cycle and cancer stem cell, indicating that curcumin maybe a strong therapeutic potential through modulating various cancer progression. It has been reported that microRNAs as small noncoding RNA molecules are related to cancer progression, which can be regulated by curcumin.” This study shows potential for curcumin in this regard and suggests further study is warranted.
New Perspectives of Curcumin in Cancer Prevention – Cancer Prevention Research, Vol 6, Issue 5, May 2013. This paper looks at curcumin’s potential as a cancer preventative and the limitations of its bioavailability. “Curcumin modulates multiple molecular pathways involved in the lengthy carcinogenesis process to exert its chemopreventive effects through several mechanisms: promoting apoptosis, inhibiting survival signals, scavenging reactive oxidative species (ROS), and reducing the inflammatory cancer microenvironment. Curcumin fulfills the characteristics for an ideal chemopreventive agent with its low toxicity, affordability, and easy accessibility. Nonetheless, the clinical application of curcumin is currently compromised by its poor bioavailability. Here, we review the potential of curcumin in cancer prevention, its molecular targets, and mechanisms of action. Finally, we suggest specific recommendations to improve its efficacy and bioavailability for clinical applications.”
