Cancer/Oral Cancer

Curcumin as a shield against oral cancer

A healthy tooth, in fact oral health in general, is something that makes up for good social etiquette in modern society. Yellowing, dirty teeth or bad breath or bloody gums are all attributes that are frowned upon in social circles and so, many people have regular dental checkups in order to make sure that their oral hygiene is up to the mark. Now, imagine if you will, you are in a dentist’s chair and suddenly your friendly, usually cheerful dentist turns grim and says ‘We need to get these mouth ulcers tested’. It is quite scary to realize all of a sudden that those innocent looking ulcers that only proved mildly annoying when you were eating something could be the first signs of something as sinister as oral cancer!

Oral cancer is a form of cancer that shows up in any part of the mouth – the floor of the mouth, lips, tongue, cheeks etc. As with any other cancer, in oral cancer too there is an accelerated multiplication of cells that show up in the form of tumors or sores, which eventually damage the surrounding tissues and organs.

Typically, oral cancer can be spotted by the following signs:

1) Abnormal growth or lesions anywhere in the mouth

2) Red and/or white patches inside the mouth

3) Unusual bleeding in the mouth

4) Suffering perpetually from a sore throat or hoarseness

5) Pain in the ears

6) Finding it tough to chew or swallow or talk

7) Sudden loss of weight

The chances of getting oral cancer are higher amongst alcohol abusers, smokers and tobacco chewers. Even those people who have had a family history of oral cancer tend to be more susceptible to it than others. Certain strains of HPV cause oral cancer as well.

Once oral cancer is detected, the usual line of treatment that is followed for other forms of cancer is prescribed. This includes radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Since the current methods of treatment are quite brutal to both the mind and body of the patient being treated and because cancer cells have started developing drug resistance, there has been a rising need for therapy that can work in conjunction with other treatments. Such alternate therapies should enhance the effects of regular cancer treatments as well as reduce the side effects involved. One such natural therapy is Curcumin therapy for oral cancer. Curcumin is a phytochemical found in turmeric. It has been attributed with a plethora of healing properties that help in curing many health conditions.

Curcumin can help treat oral cancer. Some evidence of this is given below:

  • A research paper by Monika Nagpal and Shaveta Sood was published in the Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine. This paper talked about the efficacy of Curcumin’s positive effect in oral health. It was concluded that the anti-carcinogenic properties possessed by Curcumin are very effective in the treatment of oral cancer. Curcumin can inhibit the biological pathways that control mutagenesis, oncogene expression, cell cycle regulation, cell death in cancer cells (apoptosis) tumorigenesis and the proliferation of cancer cells or metastasis. It was also found that Curcumin enhances the effect of radiation therapy.
  • Curcumin is very effective in treating pre-cancerous lesions like oral sub-mucous fibrosis, leukoplakia etc. The anti-inflammatory properties of Curcumin help in controlling the pain and the burning sensation associated with these symptoms.
  • Curcumin is known to be harmless to healthy cells but in mutated cancer cells it induces apoptosis or cell death.
  • Curcumin also helps in preventing HPV induced oral cancer by reducing the expression of HPV owing to its antioxidant nature. This happens because Curcumin brings down the levels of cellular transcription factors AP-1 and NF-kB.
  • Curcumin can make cancer cells more vulnerable to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It reduces drug resistance amongst cancer cells by suppressing proteins that promote cancer cell growth.

If you go searching online for Curcumin supplements you will find a dime a dozen. However, two things are very important while selecting a supplement that will truly help you in your fight against oral cancer. Firstly, the supplement should be made using pure and unadulterated Curcumin and secondly, it should be tailor made for treating oral cancer. An Indian venture, Bagdara Farms, has come out with a supplement known as Oropharynim which fulfills both these criteria. Not only is it made from Curcumin that is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides but it is also uniquely created for treating oral cancer. For all those who are battling oral cancer, I strongly suggest giving Oropharynim one shot before giving up hope. It definitely deserves your leap of faith!
