How Black Pepper And Turmeric Could Save Lives

turmeric-and-pepper

We all know that turmeric has some pretty awesome benefits. It has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that have been known to benefit those with arthritis and even cancer. The combination of black pepper and turmeric has opened up a new world of health benefits.

 

When you eat black pepper and turmeric together, the pepper actually can increase the bioavailability of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, by nearly 2,000%. Pepper also has an alkaloid, piperine, which has been known to prevent colon cancer cell growth. When piperine and curcumin were applied to breast cancer cells, they were shown to decrease without affecting the other cells around them.

 

Women who have breast cancer can choose to take other drugs, but they can leak toxicity into the body. Curcumin and piperine, on the other hand, had very low toxicity with the same benefits.

 

Turmeric and pepper go great together and can be used in many dishes. You can season vegetables, soups, salad dressings, and curries with these spices. Aside from the cancer fighting properties, you can eat these spices to help with the following.

 

Lowers Inflammation:

Both of these spices have amazing anti-inflammatory properties. They can help regulate inflammation in the body and are great for those with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis.

 

Fights Depression:

Rather than taking antidepressants, season your salad with some turmeric and black pepper. This quick mood fix leaves your mouth with the taste of aromatic spices, as opposed a dependency on medication.

 

Supports Weight Loss:

The active ingredients in turmeric and black pepper can actually turn your fat storing cells into fat burning cells. Pretty cool, right? When this happens, which you can continue to do with a ketogenic diet, it can be easier for your body to lose weight.

 

Try adding these spices to more foods that you eat. Whether you are eating roasted vegetables or drinking smoothies, these powerful spices can help keep your body healthy.

    Q: I was reading about a famous black author who died of brain cancer and I wanted to know what does it mean on a metaphysical level? Cancer of the brain, breast, colon, mouth. What does this signify other than extreme toxicity? What does poor circulation mean metaphysically speaking? Do you think there is a link between hair dyes, hair relaxers (burners) and brain cancer and lupus among black females. This is "off the cuff" but I hate seeing black females with straightened hair and hair coloring. I really hate it. I hate long claws (fake fingernails).

    A:

    Metaphysically, cancer denotes a feeling being eaten up (on the inside) by some emotion or emotions, always negative emotions. Mouth cancer - the person refused to speak out their hurt, anger, pain, etc. Breast cancer - the female failed to get things off of her chest or neglected caring for herself (nurturing herself, her wounds and pains, etc.). Colon cancer - the person couldn't stomach things but failed to release what was emotionally eating away at them.

    Metaphysically speaking, poor circulation means your "life flow" is stagnant due to the burdens of life "weighing you down." Most people with poor circulation have weight issues. In addition they may be "poor" and their cash flow does not "circulate" the way they'd would like and so worries about bills and other financial responsibility makes them eat away their worries whereby they gain weight and hamper their bodily circulation.

    And yes, chemicals in hair products (dyes, conditioners, relaxers) are playing a role in certain cancers of the head (i.e. brain cancer).

    Q: I am interested in all the lessons you have tabled in the article section of Dherbs. On reading one article, I learned that pepper is a mucus irritant. I am concern because I have about read on some other blog about a doctor that cure cancer using pepper and garlic (credits to KELLY EIDEM). So, I have been eating raw hot pepper and garlic. So sir, I would like to learn if there is any side effects in eating hot pepper as you have mentioned that it's mucus irritant. Thanks. Your reader.

    A:

    Eating hot peppers has its benefits but excess consumption may eventually cause harm. It boils down to how often and how much of them you are eating. Organic doesn't make a thing necessarily good to eat. Organic peanut butter is better than regular or inorganic peanut butter but peanut butter is peanut butter and thus hard on the digestive process.

    Q: Why do I get a horrible stomach ache, that lasts a couple hours after I eat a strong pepper such as a habanero pepper? Is the pepper showing me that I have an existing condition such as an ulcer? Is the pepper damaging my stomach? What is going on?

    A:

    The stomach ache is talking to you - LEAVE THE PEPPERS ALONE! Sounds like they are burning you internally! Start drinking aloe vera juice daily (one half water, and one half aloe vera juice). Also consider detoxing your body with a Full Body Cleanse.

To help get the mind on track, I would suggest our "Mental Science Manual" which can read during your healing (each cleanse, re-read the book). You also may be interested in our Breast Oil.

    Q: I'm a raw vegan, and still suffering from acne. I stay away from all sweeteners, except fresh whole fruits. I started to have lots of greens juices these days, and my skin has improved a little bit. What about spices such a cayenne pepper, is it bad for your skin? What about goji berries? I know they are diet fruits, thats why I stay away from them for a while. I even fast for a while. I just don't know how my skin can getter better.

    A:

    Greetings! Have you detoxed (Full Body Detox)? Acne is a blood disorder. Please read our article "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" for more information.

    Q: I am loving my FULL BODY DETOX. I have realized that I am not as disciplined as I previously thought. Having to make the wonderful changes you stated to return to optimum health has been a trial. I have started over several times. I just hate taking pills...I can smell them before opening the bottle Anyway the doctor said they found Pre cancerous cells in my breast and suggested I have a mire prior to having the cells removed (I have absolutely no intentions of having the butchers cut on me) please share with me your thoughts on these procedures....I bypassed Ramadan to do the FULL BODY DETOXand I'm planning to start the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. afterwards. However, I did allow them to perform the breast ultrasound and mammogram. I had a breast biopsy and that's when they found the pre-cancer cells I immediately started TBC. There is cancer in my family history on my mother's side. Also on a different note I love the videos on you tube. How can I send them to my email to share with others that I know i.e... toxic kitchen, toxic bedroom etc..Thank you and may God always bless you, your family and all those who work at dherbs and supporters.

    A:

    Precancerous cells? LOL!!! This is a fraud to scare people (women) and it works too! Pre cancerous cells means PRE = BEFORE, cancerous cells. Precancerous cells are normal cells and thus there's no need to worry. This is just an excuse to incite fear in you and have you allow them to put you on drugs and/or perform surgery. If the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is too much for you, order 6 bottles of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD and take 5 capsules every 2-3 hours for 20-days following the food/dietary regimen of the FBD! Just keep doing what you're doing!

    Not necessarily! Be careful with higher dosages of cayenne pepper. Your inquiry was a GREAT one!

    Q: My sister was diagnosis with breast cancer and also bones cancer. After chemotherapy and radiation treatment she is telling me she feels very tired, she lives in Argentina how can I help her with your advice, I did not know about your herbs when she became sick, I mentioned dherbs to her and she ask me to help.

    A:

    She needs to detoxify her body. She's now dealing with toxicity from chemotherapy and radiation on top of cancerous cells so now she must heal twice: from the drugs/radiation and the cancer. I would have her start on the FULL BODY DETOX; have her drink DETOX TEA and RAINFOREST TONIC TEA for starters. The radiation and chemotherapy are harming her. Her diet should be all raw foods and herbs.

    Q: I am on my 3rd day of the fully body cleansing. I am definitely doing this to lose weight. I am a 52 year old, black, Christian, wife, mother to 21 and 14 year old girls, legal secretary who is 450 lbs. I am to the point now where if I don't do this I'm going to be housebound. I can barely move some days that is why I started this because I feel so unhealthy. I have a question about the nuts. I got all gun-ho and ordered $135.00 worth of organic nuts from nuts.com. I got raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios and cashews and mixed them all up together (well I purchased 2 lbs of each but I only mixed up 1 lb of each together). Anyway, I was reading about how much calories are in nuts. Should I not pay attention to that because I was consuming a lot of calories in the first place or do I have to watch how many nuts I eat? I have put some nuts in a sandwich bags and basically filled it up and that is supposed to be my nuts ration for the day. I am also eating fruits and vegetables. So far the fruit have been grapes, grapefruit, red apples, pears, green apples and bananas. The vegetables have all been in a salad: tomatoes, celery spinach leaves, carrots, mixed in balsamic vinaigrette. I only ate the salad Monday night all the other times I have just eaten the fruit and nuts. I am also consuming approximately 75-100 oz of water. Sorry I’m long winded I just wanted you to get the entire picture.

    A:

    Thanks for the question, I can definitely help you.

     

    I am currently writing an eBook for www.dherbs.com called "Losing weight the healthy way." I have been a weight loss counselor for many years. I am also a health coach, personal trainer, bodymind nutritionist, and a vegan lifestyle coach. 

     

    When it comes to weight loss most programs want you to lose weight to get healthy. My mindset is to get healthy and lose weight. 

     

    In my health/fitness/nutrition coaching program www.theveganeffect.com I use a lowfat/high carb/ high raw/ nutrient dense/ high alkaline diet to achieve long term weight loss success. So far I am 100 percent in getting clients long lasting weight loss. If you are interested in my program please fill out the health history form on the side of the web page. We could have a free 1 hour initial consultation over skype to see how I can best help you.

     

    Nuts are best kept to a minimum if you use them at all. Nuts are extremely high in fat and have the opposite omega 3- omega 6 ratio that is optimal for health. Seeds are best as far as ratios are concerned. Also nuts are truly easy to over eat and cause your nutrient ratios to be off.

     

    A healthy vegan diet is a high raw fruitarian diet. 

    Example:

    Breakfast: green smoothie. (500-1000 calories of fruits blended with a handful of greens and water)

    Bridge: Dates and strawberries (500 calories) 

    Lunch: Salad with low sugar fruits (cucumber, tomato, squash, bell peppers) topped with fruit, beans, psuedo grains, 

    Bridge: 2-3 apples

    Dinner: Raw wraps (collard greens) with low sugar fruit and tahini

    Snack: Sorbet

     

    Hope this helps

    Q: I have a friend who has been said to have cancer. First diagnosed in the breast, now in the lungs back and bones. I told her about the full body cleanse and the dietary regimen. I was wondering if this is something that you think would benefit her at this stage. If so what other things do you think she could look into?

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse is best! This cleanse can detoxify the body and help remove the toxicity that your friend's body is suffering from.

    She should drink 2-4 cups of the Full Body Cleanse Tea too to give her body an extra boost!

    After detoxing, I would have her take 5 capsules of Electric Greens every 2-3 hours every day in addition to drinking raw vegetable juice every day. This can further help eliminate toxicity in her body once she completes the cleanse.

    She should avoid eating any cooked foods, just raw foods!

    She should bathe daily in moderately hot water, sea salt and 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. More tips and pointers can be found in the Full Body Detox Companion (available on-line).

    Q: I was diagnosed with breast cancer about 18 months ago and I've been treating the tumor wholistically with no chemo or radiation. The tumor has gradually gotten smaller but I'm concerned that the progress could be improved if my diet was better. I get conflicting information about eating fruits while trying to maintain a high alkaline diet. Should people healing cancer eat fruit?

    A:

    Fruits are predominantly alkaline but most warnings about fruit while having cancer stems from the sugars in fruit which cancer can thrive in which is why many healers recommend vegetables instead of fruits. All live foods are good for you when there is cancer because live foods have enzymes.

    Q: I have recently had my whole thyroid gland removed due to cancer. My doctor has put me on Synthroid (150mcg) due to hypothyroid. I've gained about 20-25 lbs and I'm considering in purchasing your weight loss package ($165). However, I would like to know if you would recommend this product for someone like me with this kind of condition? Also, I've had several individuals and doctors tell me that my weight will not come off until my medication is at the right level and my body gets adjusted to the medication. Therefore, any diet and/or medication for weight loss will be ineffective. Please advise.

    A:

    You have a choice to make if you are still planning on taking medication (drugs) while taking herbs. If you are going to take herbs and drugs at the same time you are defeating the purpose. Herbs nourish and cleanse while drugs pollute and toxify. You have a choice to make.

    Q: I am planning to use angioprim to fully unclog my arteries. I was courious about the calcium phosphate that you offer. Calcium carbonate builds up, and clogs the arteries. Is calcium phosphate going to help unclog them? Is cayenne pepper 135,000 shu, really beneficial for arteries as a cleansing agent? I'm really interested in this cayenne pepper, and planning on using it. Please give me your thoughts!

    A:

    Calcium Carbonate has no place in the human body, Calcium Phosphate is organic and thus helpful. The body is able digest it, and it will help keep the arteries clear, and clean. Cayenne pepper is one of the best things for the blood, veins, and arteries. This fruit will greatly help you in so many ways.

    Q: I've ordered the 20 day body cleanse for my husband who has been diagnose with (RCC) Renal Cell Cancer which is in the kidney & spread to the Right lung and liver. They were going to take the kidney out today but could not because the right lung has filled with fluid it is being drained now they have started on the chemo pill SUNITINIB I've told the Dr. about the dherbs pills he said it was fine for him to take them along with the chemo pill he's has been on raw for 12 days also taking 2ounces of pure wheat grass a day is there anything else he can take to kill the cancer cells in the lung and liver?

    A:

    The chemo pill is not going to help him because it's a poison - his body won't recognize it! He'd do fine with just the raw foods, wheat grass, and FULL BODY DETOX herbs. But it is your choice to do whatever you are going to do. Cells become cancerous because of starvation of OXYGEN. He should add 30 drops of OXY-DROPS to every glass of drinking water.?
