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?

I unfortunately was faced with a situation that left me with no choices. I had Non-Hodgkins Follicular Lymphoma. The doctor scared me so bad I was in the hospital that nite. No chance to read up on it until it was over. I am in remission at this time, but am thinking of doing the DMSO- artemisinin routine. I want to try to curb it in case. I was given a 10 year life extension they claim. But after all the reading I have done I wonder. The poison they put in me, left me in a brain fog still after 4 years.

Would appreciate your comments.
My son has a large b cell diffused lymphoma the size of a fotball in his stomach which has been treated with chemo (RCHOP). This has reacted well. He also has a slow growing lymphoma and has mab thera every 2nd month. The next blow was a melanoma on the side of his temple which has been removed. I would appreciate your comments greatly. The diet has been changed however, fruit is also being part of this and my thoughts is the sugar from fruit would be feeding the fungus. Looking forward to your feedback.
Thank you, Sal

[YEA] In late July 2009 @ age 64 I began generously & daily painting my nine lymph nodes with iodine soaked qtip in all four quadrants of my body, covering them with 7% iodine as an experimental treatment for newly diagnosed Stage III non Hodgkins lymphoma (indolent) & the enlarged lymph nodes that go with the territory. I have had NO orthodox cancer treatment, NO invasive diagnosis, just blood tests & ultra sound, no enlarged liver or spleen. Flow cytometry determined the genetic markers for the type of cancer. ALL nodes, regardless of original size, have shrunk by approximately 3/4 of each original size in a four month period. All have stopped feeling "rooted" and are now moveable. I really like thinking of cancer as an infection that is beatable. This lymph node reversal & shrinkage seems to fit with certain iodine 4 health innovative theories I found out there, particularly about the suspected fungal/viral/bacterial nature of cancer. The oncologist is mute, albeit professionally non committal, but clearly stumped. Alternative TCM doc is delighted, fascinated. About to get updated blood panel done. Will keep anyone interested posted. P.S. Admittedly, much more recently "raw family" type green smoothies, Fl-essence anti cancer tea, became part of this program, along with daily ACV, mega green tea caps, selenium, Vit E, & multi enzymes, like serapeptase, etc., plus rebounder, all said to assist cancer cell death. However, node shrinkage was radical before I did much else. I feel & look better than I have in MANY years. ENERGY TO SPARE.

I just found this Website and it is a blessing! 3 years ago in March 2008, I was diagnosed with Low Grade B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma along with Waldenstrom's Syndrome. Waldenstrom's has to do with the thickening or viscosity of the blood. That is the bad part, the good part is that my lymphoma is inactive and has never transformed. They found it in my bone marrow after a biopsy of a lesion on my back.
I take supplements to strengthen my immune system PLUS Low Dose Naltrexone. LDN was prescribed by a D.O. in Miami FL. You can read more about it here: www.lowdosenaltrexone.org.
One last thing and perhaps the most important... If you have cancer, it is NOT a death sentence! There is ALWAYS hope! I go to The Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, IL every 6 months for blood work and either a CT Scan or PET Scan. It is a great place where they treat the mind, spirit and body! God Bless You All! Bud Lindley
No health problems lately except still getting older than dirt. I did want to pass on what our daughter learned from the top Pharmacitical guy in the medical firm she works for as relates to my saga with Lymphoma and mites. He told her that his father just passed away with Lymphoma that was treated the traditional way and he too had mites. He related that it has only been in the last 5 years that they are learning that T cell Lymphoma is associated with mites. My, my, Ole Hulda Clark tried to tell the world for many years that parasites are the root cause of all disease. Now such folks as John's Hopkins and the U of Calif @ Irvine are begining to take notice to these "Quacks" of old.
I wanted to buy a "foe wheeler" for our little hobby farm this year, but instead I bought the modern version of Royal Rife's Machine. Hey, good people, I saved $3,000 bucks. The foe wheeler cost $ 8,000 and the Rife Machine only cost $5,000. Now, my problem is to learn how to use it soes I go out for natural causes. As you age, your DNA Telomeres keep getting shorter and shorter. Soon you are not able to produce new cells to replace the ones that are dying. Then you die of old age. Nobody dies of old age these days. They die of cancer, heart attack or pneumonia or some such stuff that our medical folks could cure if they really wanted to. The money is in the treatment.

My mother was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in leukemic stage in 2008. She was advised wait and watch because cancer appeared indolent. Last five years she was on Budwig, ayurved and homeopathy medicines and was doing well. her counts had improved and spleen size had reduced. Current reports have worsened considerably and doctors are advising chemotherapy. Please, can someone suggest natural treatment options to control this. Current cause of worry - enlarged spleen of 30 cms. low Hb, low platelets, weakness and loss of appetite. Any advice is welcome.

I have Hodgkin's Lymphoma and I'd like to know how much sea salt and how much water do you recommend I take?
|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||100%|
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] During the fall of 2005 I was put on a series of antibiotics for a period of 4 months treating a throat and gland problem. My Dr. referred me to a Nose Throat ear specialist. Test were done and this time I was diagnosed with Mono(from a patient I treated) Again more antibiotics I got worse night fevers swelling then the knots came. I was then diagnosed with Lymphoma. Yes, the antibiotics played a big part, but there were other factors. One- tight wired bras were cutting the lymph tubes where the toxins could not flow. Also wearing bras to bed and wearing under panties with elastic bands around the waste and groin area which also cut lymph tubes. Ladies, get out of the tight under garments. This is a big factor in breast cancer because the toxins stop at the breast area when the lymph tubes are squeezed tight and cannot flow and remove the toxins.

Hi Everyone. . . As promised, here is a further update on my friend's cancer and what we are doing about it. There has been much confusion by the doctors on how it started -- But I believe that it wasn't lymphoma but was originally a bone cancer that started on his backbone and spread to his lymph glands causing secondary lymphoma cancer. After he had had a few 'expensive' X-ray pictures taken of his body and further radiation therapy, my friend was simply given aspirin and Panadol and sent on his way home by the doctor's in Hong Kong. Such Hippocratic dedication is truly disappointing. It is notable, regarding cancer and metastasis, that the medical fraternity has nothing whatsoever in its meager medical arsenal that can defeat any cancer once it has metastased and spread virally. The exact figures(which took some finding believe me) for cancers being cured 5 years after metastasis and even after remission are about 2-3%. They simply have no drugs or procedures that can cope with cancer metastasis. Other symptoms that I also had to take careful account of were my cancer friend's other problems. The doctor's told him that he had had about ten tiny heart attacks or strokes in his head, causing loss of feeling, drooping, loss of motor use on one side of his body for short periods. I have incorporated certain other things into the therapy to help his heart -- not least being the megadose Lysine/Vitamin C which, according to Linus Pauling's exact same therapy, should clear his heart problems gently but quickly over time. Also, one of the side-effects of the Panadol has been constipation. Anyway, the purpose of this post is simply to broadcast exactly what I'm doing to help stop and defeat these post-metastased cancers(4 of them, on his ribs, near the backbone) in my friend's body. I have to admit that my friend with cancer was unable to purchase either Azoxystrobin or BHT in Hong kong, so I had to adapt, relying now only on high dose Lysine, Vitamin C(Ascorbate form) and Protease Enzymes for the main assault on the cancer and Essiac tablets which provide the Tannic Acid to decloak the cancer, halt cancer growth, prevent angiogenesis etc. To this effect, and to help other people, I have written up a daily protocol(which my cancer friend is following now) in simple table format and I have put it in a shared folder on Google Docs that anyone can have a look at. Here is the link:
And just to be clear, ALL the protocols that I use in this therapy are based on Ted from Bangkok's protocols. I must also add a huge thanks to Ted from Bangkok who has so generously and patiently answered every question that I have asked him through emails. The only deviation from his therapy is the Essiac tablets -- since I couldn't get the Tannic Acid -- so Ellagic acid will have to do. I will only have 3 weeks before my friend goes back to the expensive Hong Kong doctors, so this is why the protocol I've used is quite aggressive. After we discussed the protocol last Friday, my cancer friend started just the Lysine and Vitamin C megadoses yesterday and today he is laid up in bed with a slight fever, which I am happy about -- this means his immune system now actually sees and is fighting the cancer. His liver seems to be coping well because he still has a healthy appetite. But I am prepared to give protease enzymes, hydrochloric acid drops and Vitamin B100 if his appetite begins to slide. The Daily Protocol that my friend is using will change once he comes out of the Herx or cancer die-off reaction. I will be further increasing both the Lysine and Protease Enzyme doses, which is necessary to particularly defeat the bone cancer. If anyone wants to know more about this daily protocol schedule, I'll be glad to answer any questions on this ongoing remedy on EC, since this is all about passing on knowledge after all. I have also decided to keeping a daily journal of all symptoms, events, changes and remedies used and will eventually be putting this up on my Google Docs Shared Items. I will also update here on my friend's cancer status regularly.
