  • 1 Tbl Coconut Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 Stalks Celery chopped
  • 3 Carrots sliced into 1/4″ rounds
  • 2 Parsnips sliced into 1/4″ rounds
  • Shiitake Mushrooms rehydrated
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4 C Vegetable Broth I prefer low-sodium
  • 2 Green Tea Bags with Lemon
  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns
  • 2 small Bay Leaf or 1 large
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic minced
  • 1-1/2 tsp of freshly grated Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Turmeric
  • Lemon halves optional, grilled
  • Parsley for garnish
  • Eggless Noodles
  • Crackers for serving


  1. To begin, add the vegetable broth, bay leaves, turmeric, ginger and peppercorns to a large stock pot.
  2. Tie the tea bags as I have shown here so they can steep in the liquid.
  3. Bring the liquid to a boil, add the tea bags and simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the tea bags and strain the liquid to remove the bay leaves and peppercorns.
  5. In a large saute pan, add the coconut oil, onions, celery, carrots and parsnips and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Once tender, remove from the burner and add the garlic, allow the residual heat to cook it.
  7. If you have a grill pan, heat to high and add the lemon halves for just a few minutes until caramelized. This step is optional.
  8. Add lemon halves to the broth and boil for about 10 minutes. Remove the lemons.
  9. While the broth is boiling, rehydrated the shiitake mushrooms in hot water for 10 minutes, drain and rinse.
  10. Prepare the noodles.
  11. Combine the mushrooms, sautéed vegetables and broth.
  12. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with your favorite crackers.

Topical Application of Turmeric Curcumin for Cancer

Topical Application of Turmeric Curcumin for Cancer (Breast Cancer Authority Blog)Researchers showed that those at high risk for colon cancer could reverse the progression of their disease by taking curcumin, the yellow pigment in the spices turmeric and curry powder, cutting down on precancerous lesions, and even pre-precancerous lesions. Are there other high risk lesions we can try spicing up?

How about giving turmeric extracts to people who just had bladder cancer taken out, or who have an early stage of squamous cell carcinoma skin cancer caused by arsenic exposure, or early stage cervical cancer, or precancerous lesions in the mouth or the stomach? In about a quarter of the patients, the lesions started to get better. One out of the two bladder cancer survivors, two out of seven precancerous mouth lesions, one out of six precancerous stomach lesions, one out of four early stage cervical cancer cases and two out of six early stage skin cancer, all without any noticeable side-effects.

One of the reasons it may work in some cancers better than others or some people better than others is differences in bioavailability. Megadoses were given and just a tiny amount ended up in the bloodstream. If you’re treating skin cancer though, why not just put the curcumin directly on the skin?

I’ve talked about what turmeric compounds can do to cancer cells in a petri dish. Here’s some before and after pics. These are cervical cancer cells in a petri dish with more and more curcumin. Normal cells are unharmed, but cancer cell are laid to waste. Yeah, but to make it to the cervix, curcumin must be absorbed, unless a vaginal cream was invented.

A variety of delivery methods have been devised, besides intravaginal, there’s also oral, intra-abdominal, intramuscular, and under-the-skin injections. Straight into the veins, or the arteries, on the skin, up the bladder, in the nose, breathed like an inhaler, up where the sun don’t shine, or straight into the spinal column, bone marrow, the tumor itself or implanted somehow.

Taken orally, and it actually gets into the tissues. You can measure the amount of curcumin absorbed into the wall of the intestine by examining biopsies and surgical specimens taken after a curcumin regimen. It makes sense to take turmeric orally to try to fight colon cancer, but if we have cancer erupting on our skin why not just rub it on directly?

That’s what these researchers did, turmeric and curcumin as topical agents in cancer therapy. They just took some turmeric from the store made a tincture out of it, dried it and put it in Vaseline, and then had cancer patients rub it on their cancer three times a day. What kind of cancer can you get at with a finger? These were folks with cancers of the mouth, breast, skin, vulva, and elsewhere. Isn’t breast cancer under the surface? Not always. Advanced breast cancer can ulcerate right through the skin. These were all people with recurrent ulcerating tumors that had failed to respond to surgery, radiation, and chemo. And these open cancers can stink and itch and ooze. There was nothing else modern medicine had to offer. So let’s rub on some turmeric ointment and see what happens. It produced remarkable relief. A reduction in smell was noted in 90% of the cases even in extensively ulcerated cases of breast cancer, and a reduction in itching in almost all cases as well. For example relieving the severe itching in two of the vulva cancer patients.

Most of the lesions dried up and in many cases this relief lasted for months, all from just rubbing on the harmless spice turmeric, which they describe as an indigenous drug, highly effective in reducing smell, itching and exudate. The effect of this so-called drug is remarkable. And that drug, is just some edible spice used in curries for centuries.

Doctor’s Note

The colon cancer video I refer to is my last video, Turmeric Curcumin and Colon Cancer.

Some should be cautious about turmeric use, though. See Who Shouldn’t Consume Curcumin or Turmeric?
