Leukemia Natural Remedies

Leukemia is an excessive growth of white blood cells of the bone marrow, lymph glands, spleen and liver. If the conditions get worse, they may affect other tissues. Leukemia is seen as a type of cancer. Symptoms of leukemia include an enlarged spleen, enlarged lymph nodes, bleeding gums, exhaustion, ulcers, sores or pneumonia. Generally, leukemia can be caused by heredity, exposure to radiation, chemical toxins, Down’s syndrome, or even identical twins; chronic forms have unknown causes.

Leukemia can be an acute problem (sudden in children 2 – 5 years old) or chronic in older persons when it involves the lymph glands; it is more prominent in men over 50 years old. Modern medicine uses chemotherapy over a period of time; it may return. The treatments are toxic, have side effects and only suppress the disease.

Get a diagnosis from the doctor and establish a blood profile. It is best to work with an open-minded doctor and naturopathic doctor.

Bearing in mind the seriousness of leukemia the following may range from helpful to powerful. Most of the following natural supplements can be taken along with doctor treatment but may be used as an alternative also. Always check with your doctor.

Diet for leukemia: stay away from pork; eliminate tobacco, alcohol coffee, black tea and fast foods – you just have to clean up your diet.

Consider the following natural supplement for leukemia: Reservatrol™ or Grape seed extract at 400 mg a day is used for cellular integrity.

 

Herbs for Leukemia

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Cordyceps – well-researched herb as anti-inflammatory, anti tumor, immuno-modulator; improves endocrine function as well as for leukemia; also good for athletic performance.

Ringworm Natural Remedies

Ringworm starts with a reddish circle and proceeds to a dark ring on the skin. It is a fungal infection of the outer layers of the skin. Ringworm is not generally serious unless untreated over a period of time. The appearance of ringworm can be seen on any part of the skin including in beards, hair, scalp, etc. Causes of ringworm may come from public places such as swimming pools, gyms and more.

Medical treatment for ringworm is to kill the fungus externally with antifungal creams as well as toxic antifungal medications used internally.

Naturally, to rid the body of ringworm, we want to reduce the dampness in the body, increase the strength of the immune system and use compatible natural antifungal supplements and creams. Change your diet to improve immune function. Getting rid of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and sugars will help. Taking fish oil (at least 6000mg a day) will improve the immune system.

Herbs for Ringworm

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Externally with ringworm, use the herb in tincture form directly on the skin. It works quite effectively but may darken or stain the skin temporarily.

Internally use anti-fungal herbs for ringworm to get to the root of the problem (dampness and fungus) and remove the cause which helps along with diet change.

 Garlic is useful for so many things including fungus, cholesterol, and high blood pressure and improves the immune function.

Neem can be used as oil externally and also works internally. It is also quite drying.

Thyme is also anti-fungal, antibacterial and helps the respiratory system.

Black walnut may be used externally and internally, and may help to normalize blood sugar.

Natural Remedies for Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease and the most common form of arthritis affecting most people over the age of 50! It is the wearing away of cartilage with inflammation.

Arthritis in BackSymptoms of osteo arthrits include joint inflammation which develops pain, stiffness associated with inflammation; injuries or over-use causing inflammation; stiffening with swelling; joints may deform, or bony growths may appear in or around the joints. Several of these symptoms may happen together, or individually.

The causes are often a diet rich in animal fats, sugars, salts, etc. Other causes may include the use of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, injuries, and stress.

Modern medicine treats arthritic conditions by attempting to contain the symptoms using toxic drugs that bring about side effects. The drug companies have designed medications to be used for a lifetime. Western medicine considers all chronic conditions to be irreversible. This view is so prevalent that most people believe the fallacy. Don’t be fooled into thinking there is only one way.

Prescription medications may interfere with the action of homeopathic treatment. They hamper or stop the action of the homeopathic remedy in the body. Steroids such as prednisone are the most addicting and the hardest to remove. Medications can only be removed or altered with a physician’s advice. As your body is regulated under the influence of drugs, slowly wean off medications, allowing for an easier transition.

Why homeopathy does so well for Arthritis
Homeopathic treatment of Arthritis has been proven successful for over 200 years. Homeopathic remedies are safe for anyone and can be used along with any other treatments or medications. They may be used during pregnancy, and while nursing.

Treating arthritic symptoms with homeopathics is best used in conjunction with a clean and nutritious diet. The Mucusless Diet is a good guide to follow. Always remember to eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, soda pop, and dairy products.

Pain is an indication of an energy blockage (the energy doesn’t move through and organ or system in the way nature intended it. Remove the blockage, and the pain will go away permanently. On the other hand, if joint damage is too far gone the body cannot repair itself. Through the natural remedies pain can be eliminated either through continued treatment, or may go away permanently even though the joint is damaged. With severe damage, pain may not be the only factor, but joint mobility will.

More stubborn cases can only be positively affected by finding a person’s homeopathic “constitutional” remedy, often determined by an experienced Homeopath. Homeopathic remedies are very specific in their action and can be used for acute and chronic conditions.

Natural Liver Cleanse Remedies

A healthy liver is essential for many important functions of the body. The liver must be healthy enough to detoxify the body from pollution as well as toxins in the food we eat and general operating (metabolism) by-products. When the liver functions well, it may facilitate weight loss as the fat cells release their stored toxins. You may need a liver cleanse if you feel grumpy, irritable or wake up tired most mornings.

Try to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Always start by eliminating tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and fast foods.

OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) Natural Remedies

OCD is an emotional condition where certain thoughts star for several hours to months and a person can’t get rid of the thoughts, feeling compelled to act on ideas. The causes may come from emotional trauma triggered recently or from the past. This is a person’s particular defense mechanism for stress.

Modern medicine treats OCD with drugs that must be used for a lifetime (they create dependency) because they only work to relieve symptoms. They are often used in conjunction with various psychological therapies. Medications will have side effects which leads the sufferer to stop taking them. Results vary.

From the natural perspective, we can control symptoms to some degree with herbs. I have found success using homeopathics when under constitutional care. I would use a combination of natural therapies with guidance form a counselor or other qualified health practitioners. Only alter medications under medical supervision. Also change your diet to eliminate alcohol, tobacco, coffee, black tea and sodas.

Take advice and observations of your partner and friends to gauge the extent of behaviors.

Leg and Feet Swelling Natural Remedies

Leg and feet swelling, or edema, is an accumulation of liquid in the tissues between the cell spaces and may be annoying at first, but progress to a severe or debilitating problem. Signs include swelling or pitting of the skin where a finger indentation may last for a few seconds to minutes or longer. In most cases swelling of the legs is caused by (#1) a weakness of the kidneys; (#2) lymphatic congestion; (#3) heart valve weakness; or (#4) liver problems. Then there are rarer symptoms of asites, cancer, pulmonary edema, congestive heart failure, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or kidney failure, etc. More seriously, swelling of one particular leg, right or left, is important as well as leg swelling during morning or night. If the legs or feet are warm or cold, this also has significance. Swelling from vein enlargement is mostly one sided, pressure and pain sensitive and difficult to press. It is a circulatory problem and may be connected to hemorrhoids or varicose veins. Natural therapies may be very effective. Be sure to know the underlying problem.

Medical treatment for simple cases of leg and feet swelling (edema) include the use of diuretics and possibly potassium. While somewhat effective, they may produce dependence, cover other symptoms, damage the kidneys, or have other side effects and toxicity.

It is important to have the cause of leg and feet swelling diagnosed to rule out serious problems.

Naturally, we look for simple solutions first to leg and feet swelling, such as dehydration (not drinking enough water), side effects from medications you are taking, or not getting enough protein. It may also be due to constipation (not having at least one bowel movement a day).

For leg and feet swelling (edema) classification one must recognize the following criteria:

Kidneys: leg and feet swelling where the skin is warm and is already there in the mornings. Signs are seen in the face also swollen eyelids and puffiness of the back of the hands. It is mostly right sided.

Lymphatic congestion: first rule out the other causes. Swelling of feet and legs are at a normal temperature, not hot or cold, and could be either leg. We also see glands swelling in the groin, arms or head.

Heart problems: limbs are cold, and the swelling begins in the joint areas, goes to the feet and is mostly left sided.

Liver edema, also known as ASITES: before the leg and feet swelling begin the abdomen is enlarged, a water swelling, the navel is stretched where it is only seen as flattened spot. In opposition to the swollen abdomen the rest of the extremities look thin. With this process we often see a colon disturbance. Before the abdominal water swelling, we see and abdominal expansion swelling. It is often combined with constipation.

Diet for leg swelling: stop smoking, alcohol, caffeine, coffee, black tea, sodas, and processed foods.  Supplements to help with leg swelling (edema) include:

Coenzyme Q10 – 100 mg a day for heart care and protection.

Vitamin B6 is a mild natural diuretic when used at 50mg twice daily.
