Curcumin is definitely helping many patients all over the world in successfully managing Multiple Myeloma .
I have been using Curcumin and Turmeric since 2015.
When I recommended Curcumin to other MM patients/Caregivers , I got a feedback that many were unable to take Curcumin as they were experiencing uncomfortable side effects.
Nose bleeds and diarrhea seem to be some of the common side effects.
Consumption of Turmeric and its extract Curcumin , might increase the body heat in a few people. This in turn results in the above effects.
I would recommend foods like Cucumber , buttermilk etc which cool the body. These foods help in balancing the body heat.
It is equally important that we avoid foods which increase Body Heat. Avoid Oily foods , Cold Drinks, Caffeine , Spicy food .
Everyday, I carry a box to work , that has Cucumber which has been peeled and cut into pieces. I have it as a snack between breakfast and Lunch.
My Cucumber for today 🙂
I also carry buttermilk , in a bottle , to work everyday.
My advise is to consult an Ayurvedic practitioner rather than losing faith on Curcumin because of the above side effects . These side effects can be easily overcome and managed by simple home remedies and one can realize the benefits of Curcumin.
So , don’t loose heart …. have faith … do your research on the internet… a lot of information on foods that cool the body is available out there on the Internet….and get in touch with an Ayurvedic practitioner.
Stay Coool !
