Question by thousandfootk: How much Tumeric should a cancer patient take?
hello, I’ve been reading a lot about Tumeric and that it can help stop the growth of cancer cells and tumors. My brother was diagnosed with lesions of cancer in his lungs, as well as a reoccurence of a tumor in his right hip. I bought these tumeric tablets for him at the whole food store that were like 34 dollars. And I also have been feeding him a LOT of veggies such as brocolli, spiniach, greenbeens, etc. I’m trying to help build up his immune system.
I also have been giving him different sort of Antioxident teas such as green teas and this other one that helps build the immune system (I cant remember).
However, on the bottle it says to take 3 tablets a day with food or water. But I figure that since he is obviously missing the nutrients that he needs from his body (because of the cancer cells that are in his lungs and hips), he probably needs more???
I don’t really know who to ask about this… and I’ve searched google and cant really find any anwers. The tablets are around 450 mg Tumeric Extract. and 50 mg Tumeric Root.
So that makes it at 1350 mg of Tuemric Extract a day if he drinks 3 tablets??
What do you guys recommend? In a few day’s he’ll begin to take other supplements that I’ve bought Online for him that I am basing off the book “Cancer Free.”

I recommend you ask a doctor and/or nutritionist who is professionally formed in this sort of thing instead of the internet, which is full of poor information.
Health issues shouldn’t even be an option on this site it’s ludicrous….
