LGL Leukemia T cell type and curcumin


I have a more rare form of T-cell cancer call Large Granular Lymphocyte. It is one of the
lazy, indolent or smoldering types (don't you love the vocabulary), with a mean time to death of 10 years. I would be expected to die of some opportunistic infection because my neutrophils keep getting
lower and lower. The neutrophils are the infection fighting white cells. Due to treatment
costs, no insurance and only being 64 so no Medicare yet, and my neutrophil count not
being that bad yet I have been delaying any treatment. I paid the $2,000 to have all the
bone marrow tests that confirmed my condition about 4 months ago. I have had low
neutophils for about 3 years. But a strange thing has happened while waiting to turn 65
and starting treatment. My last CBC was normal, the first time in three years. Could be an error and I'll wait a month a do it again.

But here is what may have caused the remission. Two monts ago I did experiment, on my own, no doctor involved, by taking an overdose for a few days
of curcumin. This is the yellow color in curry that some speculate is the reason there are
less leukemia of all types in India. The bottle said don't take more than 5 per day. I took
6 twice a day for 3-4 days and then 2 twice a day since. This is all very curious to me
since I was overworked and stressed out during my Christmas season at work to the point
I had a panic attack. To get better under stress is a little amusing. But something has
changed and thought it should be reported.
