More than 80,000 new cases of lymphoma are diagnosed in the United States every year. Even though it’s not the most common cancer in the country, thousands of people are fighting it each day. This cancer has numerous widely accepted treatment methods, such as biologic therapy, antibody therapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and more.
All of the above approaches often cause immune suppression, pain and discomfort. The damaged immune system struggles to fight while being suppressed by these conventional cancer treatment methods. As a result, many patients’ quality of life is substantially burdened, leading to depression and other unfortunate consequences. Often their immune system is left helpless to fight the cancer.
That’s why more and more cancer sufferers are turning to alternative treatments. A holistic approach to lymphoma treatment includes many specialized methods that kill the cancer, but not at the expense of immune suppression. . Many patients have conquered lymphoma by taking advantage of holistic treatments.
Two Categories Of Lymphoma
Lymphoma is a term used to describe more than 50 related cancers. Two general lymphoma categories are Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The difference between Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma is in the existence of the Reed-Sternberg cells. Such cells are only present in Hodgkin lymphoma. If these cells aren’t found while the tumor is examined under a microscope, the diagnosis is non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is more common than Hodgkin lymphoma. About 85% of diagnosed lymphoma cases are non-Hodgkin. These two cancers may require different treatments.
Homeopathy And Lymphoma
The homeopathic approach treats the person as a whole, focusing on the entire patient instead of the condition he or she suffers from. An experienced homeopath won’t make recommendations before fully examining the patient’s physical and mental condition, medical history, symptoms, underlying pathology, and more.
Homeopathy focuses on the cause of the condition, targeting the problem at its core. Today, medicine admits that a large number of diseases are psychosomatic. That’s why finding and dealing with the cause can improve the majority of conditions, including cancer. Homeopathy focuses on curing the sick person, not the disease.
Alternative Lymphoma Treatment
About 30 percent of American adults use alternative treatment approaches. It’s not surprising that they may think outside the box when it comes to treating lymphoma.
The holistic approach involves using treatment modalities that kill the cancer, but not at the expense of immune function. These include Insulin Potentiated Therapy, Heat and Oxygen therapy, IV therapies and others. Only an experienced practitioner can come up with an effective alternative treatment plan for each patient.
Alternative therapies are aimed at boosting the immune system function while simultaneously killing the cancer. They can improve the person’s quality of life while treating the cancer successfully.
