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.
