Intravenous Curcumin Therapy for Cancer

Safe And Natural Therapies Without the Painful Side Effects


How Intravenous Curcumin Therapy Works

IV Curcumin is a polyphenolic compound and the main active ingredient found in turmeric. Curcumin naturally possesses anti-inflammatory properties and acts as a powerful antioxidant, making it a common antidote for soothing digestive issues and reducing joint pain associated with arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. Studies on curcumin’s effects on various forms of cancer report the compound’s potential to interfere with cell signaling pathways to prevent proliferation and metastasis while supporting cancer cell apoptosis.

Intravenous therapy infusions of curcumin supplements directly introduce the compound into the affected area without the need for invasive surgery or other conventional forms of cancer treatment.  Curcumin IV therapy helps to prevent cancer growth and potentially helps to reduce tumors and prevent the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body for cancer patients. Studies also suggest that some of curcumin IV benefits may help to modulate chemotherapy and potentially reduce side effects experienced by the cancer patient.

Other Benefits of Curcumin IV

Over the past 30 years, curcumin has been revealed to have therapeutic potential in alleviating chronic inflammation. Those benefits include:

  • potent antioxidant properties
  • supports the immune system
  • strengthens chemotherapy effectiveness
  • effectiveness against inflammatory disease
  • heals wounds
  • antiviral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties


How Intravenous Curcumin Supplement is Administered

IV infusions of curcumin is administered directly into the blood stream through a vein. This allows the curcumin to bypass the gut and liver. The exact dosage and the interval between curcumin IV injections will vary based on the stage severity of the patient’s cancer, the patient’s general health, and other factors. While most studies suggest that curcumin intravenous therapy use is generally safe, it is not a recommended treatment for those who are allergic to turmeric or curcumin, and it may interact with existing medication.


Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of curcumin IV?

Extensive clinical cancer research suggests curcumin IV therapy to be one of the most promising therapies. Curcumin treatment has a multitude of benefits including strong cancer treatment capabilities like mediating chemotherapy and radiation therapy, slowing down tumor and cancer cells, and having an anti-inflammatory effect. Extensive studies show the safety and efficacy of IV administration for treatment of colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and pancreatic cancer to name a few.

How long does it take for curcumin to work?

In general, IV curcumin therapy provides a direct and faster effect compared to curcumin taken as a dietary supplement. Through a curcumin IV drip, it can easily bypass the digestive system and be directly absorbed into the bloodstream. With oral administration, it takes longer to take effect as it is poorly absorbed and metabolized in the liver and intestine. Although the exact time frame of IV administration can vary from patient to patient it still is still a beneficial treatment.

What is the difference between turmeric and curcumin?

Turmeric or Curcuma longa is a tropical plant from the ginger family that is widely used as a spice in food. For centuries, it has been used in Chinese and Indian medicine, and its health benefits are linked to the compound curcumin, an active polyphenol compound known for healing chronic inflammation and alleviating chronic pain.
