Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2016 -- Today, more and more people are suffering from life-threatening diseases such as cancer. While there are treatments available for this type of fatal condition, there are also some drawbacks carried along with their use.
Research reveals the ability of turmeric to fight the negative effects of radiation treatment. Individuals who suffer from head and neck cancers and who undergo radiation therapy may benefit from the use of the spice.
According to statistics, there are about 60,000 people who suffer from head and neck cancer. This can include those suffering from cancer of the mouth, tongue, pharynx, larynx, oral cavity, and thyroid.
Radiation therapy is often used to help sufferers achieve some improvements in their condition. Within a period of 5 to 7 weeks, sufferers usually get 50 to 70 grays of radiation. Unfortunately, there are many post radiation treatment survivors who suffer from certain symptoms.
"Turmeric has long been believed to offer a range of health benefits," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
One of the symptoms involved tissue destruction such as oral mucositis. This symptom can cause functional, painful problems in the oral cavity. This does not only jeopardize one's nutrition but also contributes to the development of systematic infection.
There are many other undesirable and fatal consequences of radiotherapy. The good news is that turmeric is not only believed to reduce the undesirable effects of radiation, but also to increase the efficacy of conventional treatments.
"The Indian Spice Turmeric Delays and Mitigates Radiation-induced Oral Mucositis in Patients Undergoing Treatment for Head and Nek Cancer: An Investigation Study," was conducted by researchers. This study was featured in the Integrative Cancer Therapies journal.
Researchers revealed that study participants who used turmeric as mouthwash achieved a delay and decrease in the levels of radiation-induced oral mucositis. Individuals who underwent radiation therapy and gargled turmeric have experience a reduction in the severity of mucositis.
Turmeric's medicinal values have been extremely popular in many cultures since time immemorial. As a matter of fact, this medicinal spice has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
The therapeutic effects of turmeric are thought to come from its phytochemical called curcumin. This polyphenol contains antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Today, curcumin supplements are one of the most popular natural remedies available in the market. It is widely used by individuals who suffer from a range of conditions, such as arthritis. Curcumin is thought to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, and is helpful in fighting arthritis pain and inflammation (amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
