Turmeric helped save my life. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. As you can imagine being told you have cancer is not a pleasant experience. Fortunately I had just started a 10 week secondment in a remote area of Western Australia when my doctor gave me the news over the phone.
When I say that was fortunate, I mean it gave me and my partner Joy the chance to do lots of research before deciding a course of action. Poor Joy had to experience being on her own for 10 weeks after I told her of the diagnosis during the first week I was away. Not something you want to hear from your partner when you wont see them for 10 weeks.
But as I say it gave us both the chance to think about it without making a knee jerk reaction to the news and heading for surgery or chemotherapy or radiation straight away. Which is what my doctor was hinting at.
Having your prostate removed can cause all kinds of complications to your nerves around your waterworks and that is not something I wanted to experience.
WHAT I DISCOVERED
The research we did brought me to the conclusion that there were better and more natural ways to deal with the situation rather than the conventional way. And they involved no invasive surgery, chemicals or hospitalization.
Joy had heard about a guy named Don Tolman and he was coming to the Gold Coast for a seminar shortly after I was due to get back.
Don is known as the Whole Food Cowboy and his knowledge and insights on the human body blew me away. I learned so much in a very short time from Don.
As a result I changed my diet, did even more exercise, lots of water, sunshine, fresh air and meditation.
Don gave me what I like to call the secret weapon to cure prostate cancer. I would like to share it with you.
THE SECRET WEAPON DIET
Every morning for 90 days have a bowl of oats (porridge) with flaxseeds and a lemon squeezed into it. One teaspoon of wheatgerm oil and then add hot water. I also added a banana to mine. Then eat broccoli for lunch (raw or lightly steamed and pour it with Coconut Oil or Extra virgin Olive Oil. As for drinking my favourite smoothie is banana, blueberries, almond milk and Turmeric. Then morning and night I have what is known as Cabala Juice. That is freshly squeezed carrot x 3, apples x 3 1 x beetroot, 1 by lemon with the skin on if organic and snack on Brazil nuts throughout the day.
They are the main ingredients. You can also have as much fruit and vegetables as you like on top of that, but cut out sugar and any processed foods and dairy apart from organic butter. Thick heavy wholemeal or multi grain bread is also OK.
So that’s what I ate for 90 days. In fact that’s what I still eat and drink most days now. And I often fast either intermittently or for 3 to 7 days.
And the great news is I am cancer free. 100 percent healthy and never felt better.
So I can safely say with my experience the above eating protocol worked wonders for me. Turmeric was a huge part of that so lets find out more about it.
Many experts are calling Turmeric a superfood – well truth is any fruit or vegetable is a super food, even your average apple is a super food… so don’t get carried away when you hear about the latest fad superfood.
