Curcumin and Honey Protocol

Cancer cells are obligate glucose metabolizers.  They have 10 to 20 times more insulin receptors than normal healthy cells which allows them to gobble up glucose much faster than other cells and use it for their growth and spread.   The following protocol is said to exploit this dependence on glucose by using the honey as a “carrier” in order to get the cancer killing substances (such as curcumin) into the cancer cells to destroy the microbes that exist within them. says this about using honey for this purpose:  “cancer microbes reside inside of all cancer cells. Honey is one product which can transfer microbe-killing nutrients inside of cancer cells.”   

In regards to supplementation with curcumin and honey

Comparing the absorption rates of curcumin with black pepper to curcumin BCM-95

The standard dose for curcumin is 400 to 600 milligrams daily, but when dealing with cancer or other chronic illness, this doses can go as high as 4, 6,or 8 grams daily.  As reported in the article linked below, “phase I clinical trials, using massive doses of curcumin (up to 8 g/day for four months) in human volunteers, “did not result in discernible toxicities.”

Unfortunately many supplemental formulations of curcumin are unable to cross from the digestive tract into the bloodstream, so when purchasing look for BCM-95 Curcumin, which allows for the highest available absorption rates (up to 96%) into the bloodstream. Link to the source article.

In regards to the quality of the honey that you use:  The honey that you use will act as a carrier to help transport the curcumin into the cells where it is needed.  If you are thinking of trying a honey protocol look for a high quality honey for this purpose. You may find a local producer of raw organic honey or you can purchase Raw Honey at health food stores that has all the natural vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients, and other nutritional elements still intact.  Raw honey is rich in minerals such as iron, copper, manganese, silicon, chlorine, calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, and magnesium and is also a good source of vitamins A,B, C, along with the additional benefits of bee pollen and bee propolis.  Another option is Raw Manuka Honey which comes from New Zealand and is taken from the bees that pollinate the Manuka trees. It is considered to be the “queen of honeys” and is reputed to have the highest anti-microbial activity of all the varieties of honey.  It has been reported that hospitals and clinics in New Zealand and Australia have used this honey to treat MRSA (antibiotic resistant bacteria) that can infect surgical wounds and has been clinically shown to help with diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome.  Look for manuka honey with a UMF rating of 15 or higher.

The curcumin and honey protocol

Put the powder of 2 capsules of BCM-95 Curcumin along with 1 tsp of honey into a shot glass and stir it together. You can scoop that your portion with a spoon and then add a little warm (not hot) water to the shot glass to clean out the remainder and drink it so there is nothing wasted.

  • Take the curcumin and honey mixture at least 3 times per day. You can start this slowly and build yourself up to the ideal dosage.
  • This dose can be increased up to 8 or 9 grams of curcumin per day but you should not exceed 6 tsp of honey per day.

For more information on high dose supplementation with curcumin you can read Dieneke Ferguson’s testimonial, of healing from multiple myeloma with a daily dose of 8 grams of curcumin with no toxicity noted after continuing this dosage for over 5 years.
