CANCER PREVENTION
Ginger and Turmeric Essential Oils: A Dynamic Duo for Cancer and More
Ginger has been experiencing a revival in the
natural health world—as well it should. It’s
been used medicinally for over 5,000 years.
Ginger is a close cousin to turmeric, which
contains curcumin and turmerones, and
these are some of the most powerful botanical
medicines on earth. In this Terry Talks
Nutrition ® , I’m going to share just a few of the
many benefits of ginger and explain why I
think ginger oil and turmeric oil might just be
an unbeatable combination.
or the broad stretch of the Pacific. Inflammation
is made up of a wide variety of processes that
occur uniquely in various health conditions.

Ginger and Inflammation

Ginger is a mainstay of traditional medicine with powerful benefits for just about every system in the body. Research shows it’s effective in several serious diseases. Ginger oils provide compounds that interrupt inflammatory triggers that can cause the development, growth, and spread of tumors. The main compounds found in ginger oil are the pungent gingerols and shogaols, and they account for the majority of ginger’s health benefits.

What many people do not understand is that inflammation is not one singular activity in the body. Imagine for a moment the ocean. We use one word—ocean—but it is not one thing. “Ocean” may be the turbulent churning at a cape, or the frigid waters and ice of the Antarctic, the calm warmth of the Caribbean,

Ginger is an excellent anti-inflammatory botanical, but it is exceptional in many of the ways it touches the inflammatory processes in the body—ways that are not replicated by other botanicals. Ginger inhibits the production of certain compounds that stimulate inflammation, interrupts the inflammatory cascade, and modulates many of the genes associated with inflammation. This has distinct implications for many conditions, including cancer. Researchers have found that compounds in ginger interrupt the cycle of cancer cell development—in a sense, throwing a wrench into the gears of the tumor machinery.

Ginger and Cancer

One example of the power of ginger is its great promise in helping to treat glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. The prognosis for those with this type of cancer is very poor, because it spreads quickly and the cancer cells often become resistant to chemotherapy. In a cell study, a type of gingerol from ginger was combined with TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand), a therapy used to fight this type of cancer. The study found that gingerol was able to sensitize cancer cells to TRAIL treatment with low doses through multiple mechanisms, suggesting that chemoresistance to the therapy would be less likely. More human studies need to be done, but these are promising results for a very difficult form of cancer.

Most of us know someone who has been affected by cancer. It’s important to do what you can to protect yourself from this devastating disease. Ginger and turmerones from turmeric are two natural ingredients that show great potential for cancer prevention and treatment. These powerful botanicals:

• Neutralize cancer-causing chemicals

• Prevent tumor development

• Fight cancer and the nausea associated with chemotherapy

• Protect DNA from oxidative damage

• Reduce chronic inflammation

• Plus so much more!

HERE IS THE FORMULA I SUGGEST:

Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) Rhizome Oil CO 2 Extract standardized for 25% total gingerols and shogaols, Turmeric (Curcuma longa) Root Oil CO 2 Extract standardized to 60% turmerones

The most common use for ginger throughout
history is as a remedy for stomach upset, from
morning sickness to post-surgery nausea, so it
makes sense that ginger is also useful in
reducing the nausea associated with
chemotherapy treatment. In a double-blind,
multicenter trial conducted by the University of
Rochester, 576 cancer patients undergoing
chemotherapy were given ginger or placebo.

Turmeric Essential Oils

If you’re a regular reader of Terry Talks Nutrition ® , you know that I believe turmeric essential oils have profound health benefits. The main components of turmeric essential oils are turmerones, which possess antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor effects all their own. In particular, research suggests that turmerones are particularly good at inducing apoptosis—programmed cell death that is a crucial function in normal cells. When apoptosis doesn’t occur, cancer is often the result. Turmerones may also work by helping specialized immune cells, called dendritic cells, modulate the body’s immune response.

Better Together

Considering the clinical benefits determined by research on turmeric essential oil and ginger, scientists are beginning to ask if these two combined might create even greater levels of activity. In an animal model of gastric ulcers, for example, the combination of ginger and turmeric essential oils increased depleted levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as glutathione, and reduced lesions of the stomach wall. Perhaps they work so well together because, while they have many similarities, they are different enough that they provide much broader benefits than either one on its own. I think we’re going to be hearing a lot more about these promising botanicals in the future. Their potential is nearly limitless.
