Is Honey and Turmeric intake with milk during Chemotherapy helpful?

My mom is detected with metastatic breast cancer and has completed her first chemo.After her 1st Chemo she does not have any loose motion or abdomen pain but she has sore throat.

I have found a post in here that recommends to drink a glass of milk with 2 teaspoons of freshly ground turmeric and one tablespoon of honey( But in the discussion of another post it is recommended to avoid all kind of sweets including honey.(

So what should we follow during chemotherapy?

What is blueberry called in India as it is helpful in Breast Cancer ?

Is it helpful to intake flax seed by grinding ?

  • There is a lot of talk about sugar and cancer in the US. I think the real issue is that almost processed food is overloaded with sugars, especially corn syrup, and salt. If your mother's sore throat is due to cold or flu like symptoms my friends swear by hot lemonade. - juice of one lemon and a tablespoon of honey in hot water. Honey is known to have antibacterial properties. I am not familiar with the combination you are talking about, but would think that the honey and milk would be soothing. If she is dealing with chemo related mouth sores there is a mouthwash to help with the pain. I believe it has lidocaine in it. Others have recommended rinsing with salt water and alternating with baking soda and water. I hope your mother's sore throat improves soon!


  • A healthy female needs something around 6 gms of sugar at least. Basic minimum of everything is required by our body.. I for one don't like sweets and have had very restricted quantities entire life..but still I ended up getting BC,right :) It could be a combination of multiple factors in varying degrees plus series of genetic mutations etc. Its looks like a real time taking and complicated process for a tumor to develop.
