Sherlock RULES!!!

Sherlock got her test results today. These are her pre-Biocurcumax results, by the way. Mine will be ready next week (we have different hematologists, so some of our tests are different, that’s the reason for my "delay," even though we got tested on the same day, i.e. the 8th of January). She authorized me to publish some of her more important values, but a little while ago we discussed the matter by phone and decided to wait until I get my results.

After we hung up, though, I decided, oh whatever, I just cannot wait until next week! I’m simply bursting with joy!!! So here are just a few details, and I will publish more of ’em next week after I get my results.

First, a bit of background: 1. she had never taken curcumin before and 2. she tested curcumin (C3 Complex) with bioperine capsules. I don’t remember every single detail about how she took the curcumin capsules, but, as I recall, she melted them in hot milk, adding a bit of chocolate to improve the taste. I will post more specifics next week.

Okay, now for a few numbers: her IgG decreased from 34.8 to 28,5 g/L (normal range: 7-16 g/L). That’s an 18% decrease from her previous tests (29th of October 2007). Nothing to sneeze at, for sure! This is her first IgG decrease since February of 2007; indeed, percentage-wise, she told me, it’s the biggest decrease she has had since 2002! Fantabulous!

Her M-spike went from 2,62 down to 2,24. It is now the lowest it has ever been since she started testing it in 2005.

She is absolutely thrilled, as you can imagine, and so am I, needless to say. When we spoke, I could hear the joy in her voice. Evvai, Sherlock! Sei grande!


  1. Wow! That is so great for your friend! How exciting to actually be able to see results so fast! Am sure your tests will be super as well! Keep up the good work and passing along the info! winnah

  2. I also share with great joy the excitement and delight that you and Sherlock have at the terrific improvement in her numbers. Nothing succeeds like success.
    But I urge you to be more specific as to the dose size and frequency and method of delivery of the curcumin, so that others can know just what it is that seems to work for Sherlock, and the same comment when you post your numbers next week. Due to bioavailability considerations, the dose size is critical info, as is the means used to attempt to improve bioavailability. The devil is in the details.

  3. What wonderful news!!! Congratulations, Sherlock!!! Questa notizia… questi numeri mi danno una gioia cosi grande che… francamente, non ho parole!!!

  4. Wonderful!!! I have been taken curcumin – approximately 10 grams/day in podwer form (with bioperine) dissolved in hot milk. I also add fish oil (lemon flavor). I have been doing this for 2 years. My IgA marker has improved to the point that last test in December it was only 63 points above normal. This week I went to see a multiple myeloma specialist and shared with him what I was doing and he said to continue taking it that he has another patient that is doing the same and his numbers have improved tremendously. He also suggested to drink green tea. He is very much aware of the trial studies at MD Anderson. I was very happy with him because my local oncologist is not interested in what I have been doing. She has even made fun of me.

  5. It is Ok to publish my email. I have comments that could be helpful to others. My wife passed away 10 years ago due to MM. Five years ago I got a “pre-cancerous” prostate called high grade PIN. The doctor said there is nothing you can do except watch it……..I said, ” I think not.”
    I came up with a plan after checkng the internet extensively. I was able to REVERSE the pre-cancerous cells; as of August 13, 2008, they became non-existent. It was the last of three biopsies. Big picture: I went to an ALL organic diet; got a vita mix and drank approx 48 ounces a day of vegetables (Kale, broccli, red cabbage,parsley,carrots, and apples)…it tasted awful but I didn’t care. Also tood “ground” flaxseed, cod liver oil, Aloe Vera, Vit c, N acyetal, cysteine ( NAC),Saw Polmento, Zinc, and selenium. Walked 45 minutes every day, lost 25 llbs and never regained the weight, stopped smoking and drinking. I stopped eating red meat and went to free range chicken and wild catch fish. BIG PICTURE: I placed all good things in my body and kept out the bad. The doctor reluctantly said I have changed the cell structure back to normal again. I have added curcumin the last 2 months: result my triglycerides went down to 71 and my CRP C reactive protein is .2 The inflammation in my system is about 0…..a very good indicator of no cancer. If this article helps someone I will be happy. I too watched test results for 12 years and know the fear and excitement with bad and good results. I was VERY disciplined…..I realize that. But I made a choice to live and it worked. Sincerely Earl

  6. Thank you to you all to share my happiness. And thank you, first of all, to Margaret, who changed my life for the better 🙂

    I’ll just say how I took my curcumin capsules (8 gr./d). I took them all together (I follow a personal theory of the ‘atomic bomb’), late in the afternoon or late at night. I’ve not been very regular in the way I took them because I work out of town and sometimes is really difficolt for me to get hot milk and melt there 16 capsules of curcumin. So I used different systems, according to the situation:
    – capsules melted into hot milk
    – capsules taken drinking hot milk
    – capsules taken drinking cold milk (not so often)
    – capsules taken with just water

    sometimes my stomach was empty, somethimes was full.
    When I melted the capsules into hot milk I added either some olive oil, or some butter or some chocolate. Most of the time I did not add anything.

    My protocol also included 1.5 gr of quercetin and 1 gr. of fish oil every day.

    That’s all. I’m very happy that curcumin worked even if I changed the method of assumption according to my daily schedule. I think the most important thing has been to take all the 8 gr. together. My body knew that once a day a big dose of curcumin was going to cause apoptosis where it was needed.

    Hope this is helpful, Sherlock

  7. It sounds as though we should celebrate someone else’s results, eh, JHope? 🙂 Yippee! Great news, J! A pity about your oncologist, though. I just don’t understand why certain doctors have to behave like that.
    Ah, after reading Sherlock’s comment, I know why I couldn’t remember any exact details about her protocol: my brain must have successfully removed the distasteful image of olive oil being added to hot milk…YUUUUUCK! 😉
    Seriously, though, I agree with Sherlock that the “once a day” bomb seems to work better. I am, however, stubbornly sticking to what we agreed to do when we began our experiment, so I take my curcumin twice a day, unless I have a crazy work schedule, in which case I take it all in one gulp before dinner.
    We’ll see.

  8. What wonderful news, sounds like you are on to something, looking forward to finding out your results next week Margaret. I haven’t got another test for a few months, but I certainly feel better, since i changed to the more bio available form of curcumin at christmas. These are interesting times.

    Best wishes and good health to everyone
