Hodgkin’s disease – Symptoms , Causes and Treatment
Hodgkin’s disease (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma)
Fatigue, itching, fever, general sickish feeling, night sweats, weakness, weight loss, enlargement of lymph nodes and spleen which is generally not painful.
Hodgkin’s disease is cancer of the lymph glands, which includes the lymph nodes and the pleen. It most frequently occurs in young adults. There are hundreds of lymph nodes in your body and, together with their connecting network of tubes, are really immense in size and scope.
The lymphatic system helps protect the body against toxins of various types. Carried off through the lymphatic vessels, those foreign substances are then temporarily stored in lymphatic organs (the spleen, nodes, tonsils, and appendix). If these are removed, or become clogged because too much waste matter is being channeled through them, then trouble occurs.
- Contact your physician.
- Go on a vegetable juice fast for 2-3 days, then eat nourishing food, and fast again every few days. It is vital that you clean out the system, so it can restore itself.
- Stop eating all refined, and junk, food. Stop smoking and drinking liquor. You must live right if you are to recover.
- Steam baths, salt glows, and hot and cold water treatments will invigorate the body.
- Keep the bowels open. Do not strain at the stool, for this could injure a temporarily enlarged spleen.
- Helpful herbs include echinacea, burdock, pau d’arco, and red clover. Other herbs include white oak bark, plantain, vervain, and yarrow.
