A natural treatment for bone cancer

Natural treatment for bone cancer Bone or bone cancer is defined as a malignant tumor of the bone that can affect any bone, but is often found in the femur, tibia and humerus.

It is possible to distinguish between a primary tumor, which originates from bone cells, and a secondary or metastatic tumor, which occurs in the bone as a consequence of the spread of cancer located in another organ.

Primary bone tumor is very rare (approximately 1% of all malignant tumors). It affects almost exclusively children and young people of all ages, especially between the ages of 10 and 25. The secondary tumor is typical of the elderly and appears to show a slight predisposition to the female sex.

The main and earliest symptom is pain, which has the peculiarity that in many cases it increases at night. Later manifestations are spontaneous fractures, impaired general physical condition with loss of appetite and weight, anemia and redness of the skin in the affected area.

Types of bone cancer

Osteosarcoma is a disease in which there are malignant cells in the bone; it most commonly affects adolescents and young adults. In children, it most often occurs in the knees.

Ewing’s sarcoma (primitive neuro-ectodermal tumor) is another type of bone cancer, much rarer; Under the microscope, Ewing’s sarcoma cancer cells are completely different from osteosarcomas.

Ewing’s sarcoma is more common in adolescents, and most often occurs in the pelvis, legs (femur), arms (humerus) and ribs.

As with all cancerous processes, the likelihood of recovery (prognosis) and treatment choices will depend on the size, location, type, and stage of the cancer, the time that has elapsed since the onset of symptoms, and general health.

Classification by stages

Once bone cancer is detected, whether it is osteosarcoma or Ewing’s sarcoma, more tests will be needed to determine if the cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body.

There is currently no system for determining bone cancer. Instead, most patients are grouped based on whether the cancer is found in only one part of the body (localized disease) or has spread from one part of the body to another (disseminated disease).

It can also happen that the cancer comes back when it is cured, either in the bone or in another area (recurrence).

Osteosarcoma is more common in the lungs. It can also spread to other bones.

Ewing’s sarcoma most often spreads to the lungs, other bones and bone marrow (spongy tissue inside the long bones of the body that produces red and white blood cells). It can also spread to the lymph nodes (small bean-shaped structures found throughout the body that also store the cells of the defense system) or to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).

Diagnosis is usually made using radiodiagnostic systems that detect tumor characteristics. A biopsy confirms the suspicion of cancer.

As with all carcinogenic processes, bone cancer requires medical treatment that can be intensified or supplemented with natural remedies.

A natural treatment for bone cancer

Natural Bone Cancer Treatment # 1: Pour 1 tbsp astragalus water boiled in a cup. Cover and allow to cool. Strain and take 2 times a day.

Natural Bone Cancer Treatment # 2: 1 tbsp turmeric powder and 3 grains of black pepper pour into 1 cup of boiling water. Cover and allow to cool. Take 2 cups a day. The effectiveness of turmeric for this type of cancer could be confirmed in a study conducted using 3D printing to build support scaffolds with calcium phosphate (CaP) for possible use as a replacement for current implants made of metals that replace real bone in bone cancer surgery.

In this case, the researchers incorporated curcumin, encapsulated in a vesicle of fat molecules, into new forms of calcium phosphate, allowing its gradual release.

The study showed that curcumin inhibited osteosarcoma cell growth by 96% after 11 days compared with untreated samples. Curcumin has also promoted healthy bone cell growth.

Natural Bone Cancer Treatment # 3: Consume 2 cups of green tea a day. It is important to note that green tea is rich in antioxidants necessary to fight cancer cells.

Natural Bone Cancer Treatment # 4: Eat carrot and broccoli juices, because they are rich in vitamin A, which, as with the previous medicine, fights against this type of cancer cells.

Alternative bone cancer treatment

Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment # 1: Drink citrus juices every day because they strengthen the immune system, which also fights this disease.

Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment # 2: Practice yoga and meditation therapies. According to the American Cancer Society, both yoga and exercise should be done regularly, which helps strengthen the immune system.

Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment # 3: Consume aloe vera or aloe vera juice every day. This plant contains a compound called aloerid, which has anti-cancer properties.

Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment # 4: Sunbathe early in the morning because the sun helps produce vitamin D which reduces cell proliferation in the case of bone cancer.

Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment # 5: Consume maitake and reishi mushrooms daily in salads that have anti-cancer properties.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why is radiation therapy applied before surgery?

Recently, radiation therapy before surgery has been shown to prolong the survival of people with bone cancer. Obviously, the explanation is that radiotherapy of the tumor increases the body’s defense against it, while the tumor shrinks and limits it, favoring its disappearance.

Can a bone injury lead to cancer?

Although the first symptom of bone cancer is usually pain that occurs in the affected area as a result of the impact, it has not been shown that an injury or bone fracture predisposes to this cancer.

Can someone who has had surgery for bone cancer be considered cured?

Due to the large recurrence of malignant bone cancer, if there are no signs of spreading in 5 years after the intervention, it can be said that there are no cancer cells in the body.

Should someone with knee pain go to the doctor?

Knee pain is very common among teenagers. In general, it occurs without an obvious cause and, although it is not serious, it is recommended to visit a doctor, especially if the pain is very intense and affects only one joint. Your doctor will certainly ask you to take an X-ray to rule out the possibility of bone cancer, which is usually located near the knee.

Why is amputation sometimes used to treat bone cancer?

Bone cancer is so malignant that drastic treatment is needed when trying to slow its progression. In any case, the doctor chooses the treatment that offers the best guarantees of healing, and, most often, early amputation of the affected limb is necessary.

Why do breast cancer patients often get bone cancer as well?

Cancer can spread through the body through the blood. One of the favorite places for cancer cells to spread is in the bones. Once trapped in the bone tissue, these cells begin to multiply and form a new cancer that destroys the bone.

Why would someone with a benign tumor undergo surgery?

When examining X-rays, the doctor obtains data – such as the demarcation of the tumor or the area of bone on which it is located – that allows him to predict with a good chance of success whether it is a malignant or benign tumor. However, if that is not enough, and given the rapid evolution of malignant tumors, it is necessary to ensure their benignity by biopsy.

Only with a biopsy …

The malignant process in the bone lesion can be ruled out. In this case, there is a high chance that the lump that appeared after the lesion corresponds to what is called a lush callus, which is nothing but reparative ossification of the fracture. In any case, it must be emphasized that before the appearance of any protrusion in the bones, both in the area of the trunk and in the extremities, it is necessary to go to a specialist in order to make an accurate diagnosis.

IMMUNOTHERAPY WITH A.U.I.T autogenous urine immunotherapy

A.U.I.T. has a long-term history of benefit. Used for over 15 years by several physicians in the U.S.and taught in immunology courses at Johns Hopkins, it is primarily being done in clinics outside the U.S. now by William Hitt, M.D., Ph.D., retired Professor of Immunology from Johns Hopkins and LSU for over 13 years. He is not in private practice & “semi-retired” in Tijuana, primarily working with the WHO in Addictions research & Immunogenetics. The mechanism of action in this particular type of therapy is similar to Hannemann’s Homeopathic law of cure…Like Cures Like. He is one of our clinical consulting colleagues and a friend…

AUIT has been found clinically effective in the treatment of the following conditions:

ATOPIC DISEASES (reaction occurs in a distant area from contact region) HAYFEVER, GASTROENTERITIS, DERMATITIS, ECZEMA, RASHES FOOD ALLERGY / INTOLERANCE STOMACH ACHES, RASHES, HEADACHES, DIARRHEA, I.B.S., CROHNS, ASTHMA, ARTHRITIS, ETC. CHEMICAL SENSITIVITIES & INTOLERANCE HEADACHES, MIGRAINES, RASHES, ASTHMA, CROHN’S, IRRITABLE BOWEL, ARTHRITIS, ETC. AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE LUPUS, M.S., PARKINSONS, ARTHRITIS, SCLERODERMA, RAYNAUD’S SYNDROME, PSORIASIS, DIABETES, IMMUNE SUPPRESSION CANCER, HIV & RELATED SYNDROMES, ETC.

INFECTIOUS DISEASE

HIV, HERPES, HEP, HPV, MYCOPLASMA INFECTIONS, ETC.


There is a multiplicity of complicated mechanisms involved. Indeed, urine contains many immunologically active substances, some antigen-specific, some antigen-independent. Both enhancer and suppressor substances are present. The term “immunomodulators” serves well to describe the mechanism of action with AUIT.

TYPE I Hypersensitivity

Many B-lymphocytes exhibit surface antibodies–IgG and IgM. These antibodies differ from circulating antibodies in 2 aspects: 1. They are smaller and in the case of IgM are monomers rather than pentamers. IgG is a suppressor, and IgM is an enhancer. IgG is controlled by two T-Cell suppressor factors (TSF & TSP2). When a B-Cell is stimulated–directed or indirectly–by the proper antigen, surface immunoglobulins multiply and polarize as switching occurs (surface Ig is replaced by specific Ig, which the B-Cell produces and, eventually is secreted by plasma cells), the B-Cell then sheds these surface Ig’s. They then circulate; some are metabolized, but a significant amount appear in the urine via glomerular filtration, where they are cross-linked and denatured (urea, proteases). When reinjected into the adipose tissue (fatty), they ABORT AN ALLERGENIC REACTION IN PROGRESS (i.e. asthma attack) and, as memory cells are produced by REPEATED INJECTIONS, (8-12 or more), a prolonged STATE OF NON-REACTIVITY (Tolerance) is produced. The mechanism of action is dual…One is the immediate stimulation of T-suppressor cells to produce TS1 and TS2. The second long-range action is the production of anti-idiotypes as well as suppressor factors to other antibody-dependent reactions, such as auto-immune disease or drug or transfusion or rejection responses.  

TYPE II AND TYPE III (delated sensitivity)

So-called intolerances to foods, chemicals, etc. are mostly antigen-dependent BUT NOT ANTIBODY DEPENDENT(although antibodies are often produced, they become mostly “innocent bystanders”.) We’re dealing here with the cellular immune system. Phagocytic cells and lymphokines play a very important role. Neutrophils, in particular, are affected by these reactions. NEUTROPHILS NOT ONLYPHAGOCYTISE LARGE SUBSTANCES (PROTEINS), BUT ALSO ABSORB FOREIGN CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES (insecticides, pesticides, mycotoxins, etc.). Neutrophils are under autonomous and/or outside control. T-Cell, macrophages, and cytokines sensitize neutrophils to the point where they become hypersensitive to a given substance(s) and over-react and eventually suffer damage or destruction. AUIT suppresses these reactions by regulating #1, autonomous reactions of the neutrophils and #2, suppressing the production of cytokines.  

VIRAL SYNDROMES

INTERFERON: The mode of action against viral infections is due to the antiviral effect of the interferons, Interferon Gamma (IFNg) is the most active one in this respect. Cells have IFN receptors on their surfaces. When IFNg attaches to them, it is internalized. Interferon-gamma then acts as an anti-replicator. Interferons also inhibit mitosis (division) of infected cells. INF receptors once internalized, DO NOT REPRODUCE. Usually, about 40% of receptors are left on the cell surface. INTERLUKINS: Another immunomodulator closely related to these activities is Interleukin-1 (IL-1). IL1 has to be renewed by the proper stimulant in order to cause its effects. Therefore, the clinical observation that AUIT controls but does not kill (cure) infected cells, is supported by immunological facts.  

CRITICISMS

Much has been said in the past by critics of AUIT–who, by the way, have no personal experience with this type of therapy–regarding the danger of producing glomerula basement membrane disease (Goodpasture’s disease). In some experimental models using animals, such a disease has been produced using the injection of urine, often in previously sensitized animals. However, in close to a million injections of urine in humans in both Texas and So. Calif. clinics, not a single case of Goodpasture’s disease, marked proteinuria or hematuria (all patients undergo a urinalysis prior to the injection of the urine) has been observed. Furthermore, in 5 cases of long-term (more than 1 year) of AUIT, no glomerular basement membrane antigen was found in the blood. The objection to the presence of the CBM antigen in the urine of many normal individuals can easily be overcome by the removal of this antigen by filtration. The antigen has an MW of 80,000 daltons, which is the limit of glomerular filtration.

Removing all substances heavier than MW 60,000 daltons would leave all the immunomodulators and remove the CBM antigen. The other criticism of AUIT is that the urine does not possess immunologically active substances. This statement is so patently false, that only someone alarmingly ignorant of even the basic facts of immunology can render it. It is suggested that in order to elevate AUIT to an “up-do-date” incontrovertible therapeutic modality, the following studies must be undertaken: 1. A double-blind, randomized, placebo, controlled study in cases of atopic disease 2. Measurement of IL, production of IL2, Receptor numbers, Interferon production before and after AUIT 3. Publication in journals and dissemination of the findings to the Medical and Lay communities…especially as it refers to AIDS.

Ovarian cancer therapy information and natural treatment

Ovarian cancer is a group of diseases that begin in the ovaries or related areas of the fallopian tubes and peritoneum. Women have two ovaries located in the area of the pelvis, one on each side of the uterus. The ovaries produce female hormones and eggs. Women have two fallopian tubes, a pair of long, thin tubes that extend on either side of the uterus. Oocytes pass from the ovaries through the fallopian tubes to the uterus. The peritoneum is the mucous tissue that covers the organs in the abdomen.

If ovarian cancer is found early, treatment can be far more successful. Ovarian cancer often has signs and symptoms, so it is important to know your body and recognize what conditions are normal for you. Symptoms can be caused by a condition other than cancer, but the only way to find out is to see a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional.

Some mutations (gene changes) can increase the risk of ovarian cancer. Mutations in the predisposition genes for breast cancer 1 and 2 (BRCA1 and BRCA2) and those associated with Lynch syndrome increase the risk of ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer occurs in various types of tumors. The most common type of tumor is high-grade serous cancer, which occurs in about 70% of ovarian cancers.

What are the risk factors for ovarian cancer?

There is no way to know for sure if you will get ovarian cancer. Most of the women who received it were not at high risk. However, several factors can increase a woman’s risk of ovarian cancer, including:

  • That you are a middle-aged or older woman.
  • Have close maternal or paternal relatives (such as a mother, sister, aunt, or grandmother) who have had ovarian cancer.
  • Have a gene mutation (abnormality) called BRCA1 or BRCA2 or a gene mutation associated with Lynch syndrome.
  • You have had breast, uterine or colon cancer.
  • You are a descendant of a Jew (Ashkenazi) from Eastern Europe.
  • Have endometriosis (a condition in which the lining of the uterus grows in other parts of the body).
  • You did not have children or you had problems conceiving.

Also, some studies indicate that women who take estrogen alone (without progesterone) for 10 years or more may have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

If you have one or more of these factors, it does not mean that you will get ovarian cancer. But you should talk to your doctor about your risk. If you and your family have a history of ovarian cancer, talk to your doctor about genetic counseling.

What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

Ovarian cancer can cause the following signs and symptoms:

Vaginal bleeding or ejaculation (especially if you have gone through menopause) which is not normal.

Pain or pressure in the pelvic area.

Abdominal or back pain

Feeling bloated

Feeling full or eaten very quickly.

Changes in bathroom habits, such as the need for more frequent or urgent urination and / or constipation.

Get to know your body so you can recognize the normal conditions for you. If you have vaginal bleeding that is not normal, consult a doctor immediately. If you have any other symptoms that are not normal for you for more than two weeks, you should see a doctor. These symptoms may not be related to ovarian cancer, but the only way to find out is to see your doctor.

Use the list below to check for possible symptoms over a two-week period.

How is ovarian cancer treated?

If your doctor tells you that you have ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer, ask your gynecologist for an oncologist, a doctor who is trained to treat cancer of the female reproductive system. Gynecological oncologists can perform surgeries and give chemotherapy (drugs) to women with ovarian cancer. Your doctor can make a treatment plan for you.

Types of treatment

Ovarian cancer treatment is usually a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.

Surgical intervention: The doctor surgically removes the cancerous tissue.

Chemotherapy: Treatment that uses special drugs to reduce or kill the tumor. These drugs can be given in the form of tablets or intravenously, and sometimes in both ways.

These treatments are applied by various doctors who are part of the medical team in charge of a cancer patient.

Gynecological oncologists specialize in the treatment of female reproductive cancer.

Surgeons are doctors who perform operations.

Clinical studies

Clinical trials are medical research that seeks to discover new treatment options. If you have cancer, you may be interested in participating.

Which treatment is right for me?

Choosing the right treatment for you can be difficult. Talk to your doctor about cancer about treatment options for your type and stage of cancer. Your doctor will explain the risks and benefits of each treatment, as well as its side effects. Side effects are the body’s reaction to drugs or other treatments.

7 foods and nutrients that can help you against ovarian cancer

Proper nutrition is crucial for maintaining good health.

And it is also for preventing cancer.

While it is true that in many cases it is linked to genetics and hereditary factors, a person’s lifestyle can also increase or decrease the risk of developing the disease.

Some research estimates that up to 30% to 40% of cancers could be prevented by a healthy lifestyle and certain dietary measures.

It has been proven that foods with few nutrients and rich in concentrated sugars and refined flour (such as ultra-processed), excessive red meat and a diet low in fiber can increase the chances of getting cancer.

Specifically, given ovarian cancer, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and low in animal fats, fried and smoked foods can help prevent or fight this serious disease, which is based on certain scientific evidence.

It should be understood that there is no miracle food that can offer a complete barrier against any type of disease, much less against cancer.

But, as it was said, a rich, varied and healthy diet, with an abundance of fruits and vegetables, can greatly reduce the chances of developing ovarian cancer.

And not only that, in addition, as some research shows, even this type of diet can increase the chances of survival in the years following the diagnosis of ovarian cancer.

Here we will show some nutrients and foods that science points to and their beneficial effect against ovarian cancer.

Broccoli and other leafy vegetables

Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, kale and cabbage, among others, contain special elements and seem to contribute to reducing the risk of some types of cancer.

Specifically, the 2007 study. years old she discovered that she was sulforaphane present in these foods, especially in broccoli, favored the inhibition of cell clonogenic capacity in ovarian cancer.

Foods rich in flavonoids

Flavonoids are a powerful antioxidant compound found in a variety of vegetables and fruits, such as berries, spinach, broccoli, nuts, as well as tea and cocoa.

According to scientific evidence, some types of flavonoids play an important role against ovarian cancer. As research has shown, the combination of quercetin and genistein can prevent the growth of ovarian cancer cells by modifying different phases of the cell cycle.

Second study, published in 2007. found that certain types of these antioxidants can reduce the risk of ovarian cancer.

After monitoring in patients who ingested up to 5 types of flavonoids (myricetin, kaempferol, quercetin, luteolin and apigenin), a significant reduction in the incidence of ovarian cancer by 40% was found in those with a higher percentage of kaempferol, which can be found in broccoli, grapes , apples or grapefruit.

Vitamin D

Study 1994 years found evidence of a role vitamin D. , which is produced when our skin is exposed to the sun, as a protector against mortality in ovarian cancer.

Other research focusing on the role of this vitamin in certain cancers states that vitamin D can be used for the prevention or therapy against “cervical cancer, breast and ovarian cancer”.

Selenium-rich foods

Selenium has been shown to have a positive effect on patients with ovarian cancer who are on chemotherapy. It helps in aspects related to hair, increase of erythrocytes and white blood cells.

The inclusion of selenium and vitamin E, along with other antioxidants, appears to reduce the toxicity of chemotherapy in patients undergoing it.

Brazil nuts, hazelnuts or mushrooms are foods rich in this mineral.

Turmeric

Turmeric and its derivatives curcumin are widely used as food additives in India.

“As far as I know, it’s probably the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory,” said Ajai Goel, a cancer researcher at Business Inisider.

In addition, turmeric can also be effective in the fight against cancer, because according to certain studies, it is able to slow down the growth of tumors and even acts as a blocker for cancer cells.

Green leafy vegetables

According to research published in the journal Nature and focused on the role that diet can play in coping with cancer, it has been found that higher intake of green leafy vegetables could be associated with higher survival of women with ovarian cancer.

This may be because these foods, especially spinach, are rich in beta-carotene, lutein – zeaxanthin and other vitamins and minerals. Some studies link the positive effects of lutein on ovarian cancer.

Foods rich in fiber

A high-fiber diet is also associated with lower mortality from ovarian cancer.

According to a review of thirteen studies with a total of 142,189 participants and a total of 5,777 cases of ovarian cancer, it was determined that high fiber intake could be associated with a lower risk of suffering from it.

Legumes, chia seeds, wheat bran or almonds are some of the foods richest in fiber.

Ginger kills ovarian cancer cells, according to research from the University of Michigan

Ginger is known for its effects on relieving nausea and controlling inflammation, but researchers at the University of Michigan Cancer Center are studying the possibility of using this ancient drug to treat ovarian cancer.

In laboratory studies, researchers discovered that ginger caused the death of ovarian cancer cells. Furthermore, because of the way cells die, the results suggest that ginger can prevent the common problem of ovarian cancer, which is the resistance of cancer cells to standard chemotherapy treatment.

The University of Michigan team used powdered ginger, similar to that found in health food stores, with the only difference being that the one used was of standard quality for research. Ginger powder is dissolved in the liquid and injected into the culture of ovarian cancer cells. Ginger caused the death of all cancer cell lines that were tested.

Researchers have even discovered that ginger has caused two types of cancer cell death. One type, known as apoptosis, is basically the suicide of cancer cells. Another type of cell death, autophagy , occurs when cells eat or attack themselves.

Summary of research with ginger

“Most patients with ovarian cancer develop a recurrent disease that eventually becomes resistant to standard chemotherapy, which is associated with resistance to apoptosis. If ginger can cause cell death such as autophagy, in addition to apoptosis, resistance to conventional chemotherapy can be avoided, “said study author J. Rebecca Liu, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Michigan School of Medicine and a member of the Comprehensive Cancer Center. the same university.

Studies are initial and researchers want to test whether they can get similar results in animal tests. A promising item of the potential ginger treatment is that it has practically no side effects and is easy to consume in a capsule.

Ginger and inflammation

Ginger is effective in suppressing inflammation and inflammation is known to contribute to the development of ovarian cancer cells. If inflammatory reactions can be eliminated, researchers believe that ginger could also stop the growth of cancer cells.

“In several cancer cell lines, we found that death caused by ginger has a rate similar to or better than chemotherapy with drugs commonly used to treat ovarian cancer,” said Jennifer Rhode, a researcher in the Department of Gynecological Oncology.

Liu’s laboratory is also studying the effect of resveratrol, a substance found in red wine and turmeric, the active ingredient in saffron, on ovarian cancer. In addition, researchers from the Comprehensive Cancer Center are investigating ginger and its use in controlling nausea caused by chemotherapy and in preventing colon cancer.

“Patients use these natural products as a substitute or as an adjunct to chemotherapy, but we don’t know if they help and how they help. We do not know how these products interact with chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. There is no good clinical information, “says Liu.

This year, more than 20,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and 15,000 will die from that disease, according to the American Cancer Society.

Blood cancer natural treatment – leukemia myeloma lymphoma

Blood cancer affects production and function blood cells . Blood is produced in the bone marrow, where most blood cancers originate. The three types of blood cells that mature and develop from bone marrow stem cells are red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.

Uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell interrupts the process of development of normal blood cells in most blood cancers. Blood functions, such as fighting infections and preventing serious bleeding, are limited by the action of mutated blood cells.

Three main types of blood cancer

Blood cancer can usually be divided into three types:

  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Myeloma

Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that fights infections. Abnormal lymphocytes become lymphoma cells, which multiply and accumulate in lymph nodes and other tissues. These cancer cells gradually worsen the immune system.

Leukemia

The rapid production of abnormal white blood cells causes a type of leukemia called cancer that is found in the blood and bone marrow. Leukemia can be acute or chronic. Immediate treatment of chronic leukemia is necessary, which progresses more slowly than acute leukemia.

Many patients with acute leukemia have successfully responded to conventional treatments. In chronic leukemia, cells tend to divide slowly due to better treatment with targeted therapies. Participation in a clinical trial offers some patients access to experimental therapies, so it is always good to talk to a doctor and find out whether joining a clinical trial is good or not.

Leukemia is classified as lymphocytic or myelogenous. Lymphocytic leukemia means abnormal growth of cells that develop in the marrow into lymphocytes, which are a type of white blood cell that play a role in the immune system. Abnormal cell growth that occurs in the bone marrow that later matures into white blood cells is called myelogenous leukemia.

The four main classifications of leukemia are:

  1. Acute myelogenous leukemia
  2. Chronic myelogenous leukemia
  3. Acute lymphocytic leukemia
  4. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Leukemia can occur in both adults and children. Symptoms of leukemia can vary depending on the type and stage, and include headache, enlarged liver and spleen, fever, night sweats and other flu-like symptoms, bone pain, weight loss, pallor, and red spots on the skin. swollen or bleeding tonsils, gums, weakness and fatigue.

Natural leukemia treatment and nutrition

If you are a patient or caregiver of a person with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), you may be wondering: What dietary guidelines should a patient with CML follow? In this article, we give some recommendations, which in many cases are similar to those that should be followed by everyone with a chronic disease, but in others it includes specific advice for people with oncohematological changes. Derived from some symptoms of pathology – although the patient does not always feel them – and from the treatment itself, it is normal to feel tired, worried and with little appetite. Feeding recommendations will always depend on the stage of the pathology, and your hematologist will guide you through the program separately. Nevertheless, a good diet and a healthy routine are key aspects of dealing with the disease, so we give you some guidelines to make it easier for you.

Some of the general dietary tips to follow are the following:

Eat 5 meals a day, making sure they are foods with a high nutritional value. If you are not too hungry, start small, but do not skip meals.

Use cooking techniques, such as steam, oven … Avoid frying food.

Eat moderate fats, especially those of animal origin.

Drink plenty of fluids and, if possible, between meals, not during meals, because you will feel bloated.

Practice good food handling procedures, wash fresh products properly and peel fruits.

Here are some more specific tips if you find yourself in one of the following stages of CML treatment

As we have commented in other articles, the main treatment in cases of CML detected in the chronic phase are tyrosine kinase inhibitors. This presents several side effects compared to other forms of more aggressive cancer treatment, but among them are fatigue, abdominal pain, vomiting or hypertension.

Therefore, you should adjust your diet to the doctor’s instructions and taking into account the following tips:

Eat a nutritious but indecent diet. Try to use healthy cooking methods.

Eat healthy fats, such as olive oil.

Eat protein from chicken, turkey or white fish. Avoid red meat and sour foods, alcohol, coffee or spicy foods.

Get used to cooking without or with a little salt in meals, this way you will favor the control of hypertension.

In some cases, with increasingly rare advances in treatment, a patient with CML requires a bone marrow transplant. If this is your case, the following diet tips can help.

After a bone marrow transplant, infections in the intestinal mucosa – one of the main side effects of cancer treatment and known as mucositis – must be prevented from entering the bloodstream, so a diet low in bacteria is recommended. It consists of eating all the food that has been cooked or, if not cooked, to be properly washed and peeled.

You should not eat cheese, milk, eggs, smoked food, undercooked meat, raw fish or bottled water, among other things.

At this point in your treatment, your medical team will best give you some dietary guidelines that suit your physical condition.

If you suffer from mucositis, which is a common problem, it is good to follow these tips:

Maximize dental and oral hygiene by rinsing with saline every 2-4 hours. Avoid rinsing your mouth with alcohol.

Avoid sour, spicy or too hot food.

Follow a diet and increase your intake of fluids and cold foods.

Keep your mouth cool with the help of ice cubes, cold water, ice cream, which can prevent pain and ulcers on the mouth.

Lymphoma

Lymphoma affects the lymphatic system and results in excessive removal of fluid from the body and the formation of immune cells. The two categories of lymphoma are Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is found in people with lymphoma that is about 12%. Once considered fatal, it has now been turned into a curable condition thanks to rupture research.

Most non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas are B-cell lymphomas, which are able to grow rapidly (high grade) or slowly (low grade). There are 14 types of B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The remaining are T-cell lymphomas named after various cancerous white blood cells or lymphocytes.

Symptoms of lymphoma include fever, weight loss, difficulty breathing or chest pain, rash, itchy skin, weakness and fatigue, sweating, and swollen lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin.

Natural Remedies For Lymphoma

As with most diseases, there are natural remedies for treating lymphoma. Traditional treatments include traditional chemotherapy, radiotherapy and, in the most advanced cases, transplantation. When the treatment is over, there can be three different situations. The first is that the treatment did not work properly, so the doctor will be in charge of determining the next treatment that will follow. Another situation is that the patient partially responds to the treatment and, finally, a positive and complete response to the treatment. However, these natural remedies can also be used to promote the effectiveness of the treatment.

Whether you want to lose weight or maintain weight, it is true that diet plays a fundamental role in the treatment of all types of diseases. The diet recommended as one of the natural remedies for treating lymphoma should be of good taste and smell in order to avoid any type of nausea that occurs as a result of chemotherapy. Also, to avoid this problem, it is recommended that meals be distributed in small amounts throughout the day. As for the type of food, you should avoid the one that makes it difficult for the body to absorb or that is too dry or irritating.

Vitamin D from sunlight is by far the best home remedy for treating lymphoma, because you only need a walk outside to soak up the benefits of the sun. Vitamin D actively eliminates many of the symptoms of NHL, so although it is not always easy, taking a good dose of the sun can help keep cancer at bay.
