      Talk to your doctor.

      The two things you mention are not replacements for each other.

      Not a replacement, but research and please ask your doctor about DIM.

      What is DIM? Is it an abreviation.

      One of the reasons I eat sprouts which are simply very young plants.

      Ask your doctor about letrizole. It may be a better alternative. Continue taking curcumin

      Take Tumeric/ Curcumin daily as an anti-inflammatory supplement, ok by Doctor, mix with honey, apple cider vinegar, lemon rinds and black pepper for proper absorption, one tablespoon every morning.

      There are other medications to prevent recurrence of hormone receptor positive breast cancer. As others have said, turmeric is not an alternative that provides the same or similar treatment. I take Meriva which is an easily absorbed curcumin in addition to exemestane which is the AI I take instead of Tamoxifen. I take Meriva for anti-inflammatory properties.
