I was taking Super Bio-Curcumin from Life Extension Foundation for its proven cancer-killing effects. Then I read the warning label on the back: "Do not take if you have a biliary tract obstruction. Use during chemotherapy should only be performed under the direct supervision of a qualified medical professional. Curcuminoids may enhance the action of anti-platelet drugs and the effects or Warfarin." Then I discussed this with one of the Cancer Naturopathic Doctors at Life Extension Foundation who recommended I dc the Curcumin (Tumeric).
Now after more careful review of the notes on my own case, I find that my common bile duct is distended, not yet blocked. The ND's concern was that because the Curcumin causes an increased flow of bile, It might cause a problem. My more major concern, however, is killing cancer--and more research shows that Curcumin/Tumeric may kill cholangio and other cancers--according to other posts. My chemotherapy is not of the anti-platelet variety. So I'm probably going to try going back on the Super-Bio-Curcumin from Life Extension. The revised formula I believe omits bio-perine and uses another method to increase absorability. If I encounter a problem, I will dc it.
