The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

Sayer Ji
Activist Post

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no-stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising!

Fluoride's neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From 'conspiracy theories' about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional 'seat of the soul' – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

Now, a new study published in the Pharmacognosy Magazine titled, "Curcumin attenuates neurotoxicity induced by fluoride: An in vivo evidence," adds experimental support to the suspicion that fluoride is indeed a brain-damaging substance, also revealing that a natural spice-derived protective agent against the various health effects associated with this compound is available.

Fluoride Detox

Like others who have commented here, I have been taking nascent iodine for a few months now. During the first couple of weeks my head ached like the worst hangovers when I used to imbibe. Then, one day the throbbing stopped. With that came a noticeable lucidity and awareness like never before. This was an unexpected bonus. I knew fluoride, bromide (and all the other "ides") have a dumb-down effect, but to realize an actual improvement in cognitive function convinced me of the need for such natural supplements to counter the deliberate invasive poisoning 'they' subject us to.

Good post, Chris!

It's my understanding.....

It's my understanding that turmeric alone does not contain enough of the cucurmin extract needed to do many of the things cucurmin is said to do. Therefor cucurmin supplements would be the way to go. I have tried reasonably large amounts for arthritis but have had little relief. But, I've also heard it fights /prevents cancer, helps with fluoride and is an anti-inflammatory.

I also have used nascent iodine for fluoride detox and or iodine deficiency.

I have not added much K-2 to the die, but have heard its needed to compliment other supplements like vitamin D3.


I have seen it contended that curcumin/turmeric is not all that
readily utilized by your body. As IN Sculptor for... mentions in
one of the posts below using a pepper extract such as Bioperine
with the turmeric may make it more effective. You can buy Bioperine
pretty cheaply on the Net or get curcumin supplements that
contain it.

Here in Japan, they sell the powder as a "tea" -you just put
the powder in hot water, wait a while and drink it. I generally
buy a larger package of locally-grown turmeric powder that
doesn't say anything about how much curcumin is actually in it.
But I bought another individually packaged turmeric tea the other
day that said a single individual serving had 30mg of curcumin.

Looking at some of the articles on clinical trials on the Natural Blaze
site several reported using daily dosages of 250mg, which would be
a lot of tea. I'm still using that several times a day but think I will get
some supplements also.

If your issues are with skin or arthritis there are some articles about how to
mix it for topical use. I just made some up yesterday but haven't
been using it long enough to really report any results. Searching on "turmeric
topical skin treatment" or some such will turn up a lot of articles.

You should also try

eliminating nightshade vegetables from your diet to help with the arthritis. You may have an intolerance to them especially if you have/have had an auto-immune disease. I have much less muscle soreness when I don't eat nightshades.

For arthritis try grape seed extract.

Works wonders...

If you have arthritis...

Here's a study that talks about external application of stinging nettles to treat arthritis:

And here's an overview of the study:

No but iodine does help with

No but iodine does help with flushing out the flouride and bromin. The vitamin K2 tells the body where to put the calcium in your body. If You are deficient in K2 your body will deposite calcium into Your veins and muslces which causes all sorts of problems. I can tell its working because like I said ive been having vivid dreams for the last week or so. Before I started taking K2 I never remembered my dreams but now its like a movie every night. As far as the iodine Ive been taking about 40mg a day and the detox is pretty bad but hopefully Ill be better in a week or so.

How much K-2

How much K-2 do you feel is needed to assist with the other supplements success?

LIBERTY2ME's picture

Is there any specific brand

Is there any specific brand of tumeric I should be getting and what is the difference between turmeric and curcumin?

Good stuff

My, umm, pet...

Mixes this stuff

(Human version mushroom supplements are available from the same company -
they're just considerably more expensive.)

and powdered turmeric (grown locally where I live in Japan) and mixes it in yogurt.

Alternatively, (and perhaps more effectively) you can make a tea of either or both of
the above and it should put a bounce in your step.

Not to mention possibly preventing you from developing diabetes or healing
liver damage if you already are diabetic and much else:

I've been taking curcumin for

I've been taking curcumin for a week now and haven't noticed a thing. I have also been taking K2 and I have noticed its effects. Ever since I started taking K2 I have been having vivid dreams.

k2- that's iodine right? (edit - no it's something else)

Vivid dreams? Definitely. Last night I dreamt the dp was down so I had to comment by picture postcard.......

Since the active polyphenol

Since the active polyphenol is curcumin, I wonder if it is found in the spice Cumin?

Nope. Curcumin is found in tumeric,

not in cumin. Source

I've been using a lot turmeric in food for the past couple years, but only because I read it helped with blood pressure and cholesterol (in tandem with compounds in black pepper). This is a bonus indeed!

If you're not into foods with a bunch of "foreign" (LOL!) spices, just sprinkle some on your eggs in the morning with pepper and salt (a little garlic powder is good, too); you'll hardly notice it's there. It is also used as a dye, though, so bear that in mind.

I've been tossing a heaping

I've been tossing a heaping teaspoon of turmeric on something I eat (almost) every day for about 5 years now. Like yourself, it has nothing to do with fluoride. I had digestive troubles and this was one of many natural supplements that I found while searching around the web. Now I don't have the digestive troubles but I still have the habit of tossing turmeric on stuff. It's almost an addiction. I feel a touch of distress when I see my supply is low. In that same time span I've felt like I have better cognitive skills, but I attributed it to having a lack of synthetic foods and fewer carbs in my diet. I never made any connection with my turmeric intake. This article has given me more food for thought (pun intended).

Cool! I never knew it could help with digestive issues.

I'm sorta hooked, too. I received some goat freezer meat from our neighbors' farm not too long ago, and it's the perfect thing for turmeric, of course! Seems considerably less gamey with a good dose of turmeric....
