(December 7, 2010)

Natural Home Remedies For Leukemia

Home remedies in the form of lifestyle changes can benefit leukemia patients.

Leukemia refers to a condition where the bone marrow of the patient is affected by cancer. The disorder occurs due to abnormal and uncontrolled growth of the white blood cells in the bone marrow. There are certain remedies for the control of leukemia but choosing the remedy chiefly depends on the type of leukemia as well as the extent to which the disease has spread in the body.

Two different types of leukemia are Acute and Chronic.

Acute leukemia occurs due to rapid and uncontrolled growth of immature blood cells. The overproduction of these cells results in clouding in the bone marrow as a result of which the bone marrow is not able to produce healthy white blood cells.

This form of leukemia is more common in children and young adults.

Chronic leukemia refers to a condition where there is an excessive and uncontrolled production of mature blood cells. The cells are produced over a period of months or years resulting in the over production of white blood cells. The chronic type of leukemia generally occurs in elder people.  

Specific Remedies and cures for Leukemia

Leukemia is a condition for which there are no proven home remedies. But home remedies can go a long way to provide relief from the ailment and at the same time increase the immunity of the body so as to have no adverse effect on the body. Making little lifestyle changes can work wonders for the treatment of leukemia. 

One should always keep a distance from alcohol and smoking. A diet chart which constitutes all the required ingredients for the body should be followed. If one is under medication then the medicines prescribed by the doctor should be taken regularly. Leukemia is the cancer of blood and it causes the white blood cells as well as hemoglobin to reduce considerably.

In such cases to boost the hemoglobin level of the body one should consume large amount of dates and grape fruits which help to boost the hemoglobin level of the blood.

Wheat grass juice can also be taken on an empty stomach early in the morning. This boosts the immunity of the body and provides strength to the body.

Herbal remedies for leukemia can also help to reduce the ill side effects on the body. If any medication is causing side effects then it should be brought to the notice of the doctor instantly.

Building a positive frame of mind to fight the disease can do wonders. Take moral support from your family members as well.
