Leukemia – symptoms, causes and treatment
Weakness, easy fatigue, a remarkable whiteness of the skin, difficulty in breathing, spells of fever, sweats, palpitation, rapid heart, loss of weight, soreness or ulceration of the throat and gums, and a tendency to hemorrhage.
In one type, the spleen is enlarged; in another, the lymph glands are also enlarged.
This is called cancer of the blood, but it is actually cancer of the bone marrow, where the blood is made.
Leukemia (which means “white blood”) produces a defect in the production of white blood cells, resulting in large numbers of immature WBCs in the blood stream. WBCs are vital to physical health; and, without them, the body deteriorates. The bone marrow continues to produce an excess of them; yet many of those produced and dumped into the blood stream are essentially useless.
A blood test reveals anemia (not enough red blood cells), low platelet count, increased lymphoblasts (an excess of immature WBCs), and an elevated total WBC count.
Chronic cases run an up and down course for several years. Acute cases generally end fatally in a few weeks.
As a rule, leukemia ends in death. A person can choose to go the medical route or try natural remedies. There will, of course, be a risk and the very real possibility of death, whatever his decision may be.
• Treatment may include DMSO IV (which matures the immature cells in circulation), laetrile, germanium, selenium, vitamin A, and vitamin C to bowel tolerance.
