Natural treatment of lymphoma hinges on treating the whole person not just the disease and includes lifestyle changes as well as natural supplements. Making necessary changes to the diet and lifestyle delivers detoxifying results, eradicating the body of cancer-causing toxins. Natural supplements fortify the immune system and bolster health to destroy and reduce unhealthy cancer cells.
What is Lymphoma?
A cancer of the lymphatic system, lymphoma attacks the disease-fighting center and network of the body. The lymphatic system includes the lymph nodes, spleen, thymus gland and bone marrow. Once cancer has entered one part of the lymphatic system, it can spread to all of the other areas through this network.
Common risk factors include age, gender, exposure to chemicals including benzene, radiation, immunodeficiency, and certain infections. Symptoms often vary, but lymphoma typically begins as a swelling in the neck, underarm or groin. Additional symptoms may include enlarged lymph nodes, swelling in the arms and legs, numbness of the extremities, fever, chills, unexplained weight loss, sweating, lethargy and itching.
Lifestyle Remedies for Cancer of the Lymphatic System
Adapting one’s lifestyle to fight cancer is one of the most effective treatment options. Making dietary changes such as eliminating sugar from the diet as sugar feeds cancer and eating whole foods slows and can even reverse the progression of cancer. Likewise, taking probiotics or eating fermented food such as kefir and sauerkraut eliminates toxins in the body and boosts the immune system, which also cleanses the lymphatic system.
Natural Supplements for Treating Lymphatic Cancer
Natural supplements also serve as an important defense mechanism against cancer. Iodine, artemisinin and green tea extract are three of the most beneficial natural supplements for debilitating cancer of the lymph system. These supplements support immune health while fighting cancer cells to offer recovery from the disease.
Iodine is a natural chemical element that the body needs for normal functioning. The natural composition of iodine attacks the cancer cells while preserving healthy cells, making it a particularly effective treatment option.
An extract of a Chinese herb, artemisinin aggressively fights cancer. Much like an oxygen treatment, artemisinin works to break down cancer particles and destroy the “parasite” in the body. The treatment is more effective and less invasive than most modern treatment options and maintains healthy cells intact.
Green Tea Extract
Derived from the leaves of the Camellia sensis plant, green tea extract is extremely high in polyphenols, which have antioxidant properties. The most important polyphenols in green tea are called catechin and appear to destroy cancer cells, making it an effective option for treating lymphoma.
Appropriate treatment of cancer should be guided by a medical professional; however, many natural treatment options offer extensive results for treating lymphoma. Dietary changes paired with the right natural supplements can eliminate even progressive stages of cancer.
My friend came over to Tacna from Arika, Chile to try to get help for her lymphoma. She does not want chemotherapy and is looking for alternatives. She is eating papaya, pineapple, mango and rice integral and integral bread. No meats or fish. She is taking steam baths every day and drinking water or juice. What else can she do for her lymphoma that is natural?
