Dieneke Ferguson was diagnosed with blood cancer myeloma at the age of 67, back in 2007. This type of cancer is very dangerous and it killed 3,000 people in the UK. In an attempt to fight the cancer, she took three rounds of chemotherapy and cell transplant, from which she encountered only pain and relapse throughout the whole process. After the repeated failure of the process of fighting the cancer, she wanted to try something new that became her last resort – she started taking 8 grams of curcumin a day (an active ingredient in turmeric).
The cancer was successfully defeated and she started her own, non-profit business artist’s platform to help artists market their work.
She said, “I hope my story will lead to more people finding out about the amazing health benefits of curcumin.”
Turmeric is a spice that was used in the ancient times for flavoring and adding a golden color to a lot of dishes. Curcumin – the active ingredient – is becoming more and more popular to its inflammation-reducing abilities, as well as disease fighting and antioxidant tendencies.
Short fun fact: when you add black pepper to turmeric, the piperine ingredient in the pepper (black pepper’s active ingredient) makes curcumin 2000% more bioavailable, which means it becomes even more effective and easy for your body to absorb.
