Lymphoma - types, symptoms and treatment
Oncological disease of lymphatic tissue is defined by medicine as lymphoma.This name implies a large group of pathologies, which includes:
- lymphogranulomatosis - the second name of Hodgkin's lymphoma;
- non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
What kind of oncological disease is present in the patient, only a specialist can determine - for this he will need a biopsy( laboratory study of a small fragment of the affected tissue).
Note: non-Hodgkin's lymphomas include a subset of aggressive tumors that are rapidly developing, have pronounced and numerous symptoms and require the provision of emergency medical care.But there are in the same category of lymphomas that flow favorably, develop / grow slowly - they are classified as indolent lymphomas.

Causes of lymphoma development
Despite ongoing research in the field of oncology, precise and unambiguous causes of lymphoma have not yet been established.Doctors can say only one thing - this pathology does not have an infectious etiology and is not transmitted from person to person.
Among the most probable causes and factors that are capable of provoking a "settlement" in the lymphatic tissue of pathogenic lymphocytes are:
- hepatitis B and C viruses;
- human immunodeficiency virus;
- Epstein-Barr virus;Age specific features of the patient
Some scientists confidently state that the oncological disease under consideration can develop against the backdrop of long labor in the production of pharmaceutical products, as well as with genetic predisposition.But such statements are not supported by scientific research and can not take on the truth.
Symptoms of lymphoma
Development of any type / form / type of lymphoma begins with an increase in lymph nodes in the groin, axillae and neck.Patients note that even greatly enlarged lymph nodes are absolutely painless, but they do not decrease in size even after prolonged therapy with antibacterial drugs( antibiotics).
Note: at the initial stage of the disease, in addition to enlarged lymph nodes, there are no severe symptoms - the patient can only complain of a breakdown and rapid fatigue.
As the oncological disease progresses, the pathology begins to develop in the liver and spleen( in their lymphoid tissues) and the patient begins to complain of difficulty breathing, a feeling of overflow in the abdomen( although at this point in the development of pathology, appetite is either significantly reduced or absent altogether)In the lower back there are bursting and pressing pains, and in the neck area there is a strong discomfort - a feeling of "bursting," pressure from within.
Symptoms of Hodgkin's lymphoma are somewhat different:
- regular increase in body temperature in the evenings - this condition can last several weeks, antipyretic drugs help very little;
- itching of the skin - it intensifies at night, almost does not disturb during the day;
- pain syndrome in the anatomical location of the cervical lymph nodes - a feature of it with Hodgkin's lymphoma is an increase in the intensity of sensations after drinking alcoholic beverages.
To anxious signs that may indicate the development of the disease in question, you can include increased sweating, and digestive disorders.
Note: Doctors start a deep health check only when several symptoms are combined.If, on the background of enlarged lymph nodes, there is increased sweating or characteristic pain in the lower back, the patient undergoes a complete examination specifically for the development of lymphoma.
Treatment of lymphoma
Lymphoma therapy, like any cancer, takes time - some patients spend several years in the walls of a medical institution until the time of full recovery. Therapy for lymphoma is complex, involves rather complicated procedures and is reduced to the appointment:
- intrathecal therapy;
- cytotoxic drugs.
Note: therapeutic methods of treatment of the oncological disease under consideration will be effective only if pathogenic cells are not found in the bone marrow.If the spread of the disease is already so extensive, then the only rescue for the patient will be a bone marrow transplant.
You should never take recipes from the category of traditional medicine for a panacea - they are only able to support the body in the fight against a terrible ailment.Oncological diseases should be treated at a professional level.Yes, examples of miraculous healing are exclusively folk remedies, but one should not hope for a repeat of a favorable outcome.There is a mass of evidence and recorded cases when the patient himself brings to a grave condition and accelerates the lethal outcome only because he ignores the appointment of the attending physician.
Treatment with celandine
The celandine for the treatment of lymphoma is harvested in late April-early May: stems, leaves, flowers and roots will be needed.They need to be cleaned of dirt, washed and knife carefully cut into small fractions( attention: the knife should be made of stainless steel!).The raw materials are placed in a 3-liter jar, it is well tamped, covered with gauze and put in a dark place.
Every day a wooden stick should pierce the mass in the jar so that the air that forms is formed.For 4 days, squeeze cake - on the output will be about 700 ml of celandine juice, which is used in the treatment of lymphoma. Diagram of receiving this remedy:
- If 1-2 degree of lymphoma was diagnosed, then drink 1 tablespoon of juice added to 100 ml of milk.This is done before bedtime, after consuming the medicine you can use more milk, but neither eat nor drink anything after taking the celandine juice - it is advisable to carry out the procedure before bedtime.
- If, however, the lymphoma was detected already in the 3-4 stages of development, then the dosage will be different: 1 tablespoon per 100 ml of milk.But take this amount of medicine should be at least 2 times a day.Please note: the break between meals should be at least 12 hours.
For the course of treatment at 1-2 degrees of lymphoma, 0.5 liters of celandine juice will be needed, in case of 3-4 degrees of lymphoma - 0.7 liters.After the end of the course of taking this remedy, you need to see a doctor and go through the examination, if the dynamics remain the same, then the course of treatment with celandine juice can be repeated.
Mix 30 ml of vodka and the same amount of vegetable oil( unrefined), cool and shake thoroughly until an emulsion forms.Take the medicine three times a day at regular intervals.Before each reception the emulsion is prepared fresh, to wash down or seize this medicine it is impossible.When the course of treatment with this remedy is taken from the diet, sweets( you can only have honey), dairy products and fatty meat should be excluded.
Please note: you can take the emulsion for 10 consecutive days, then take a break for 5 days and the course is repeated.It is in these 10 days of drinking vodka with oil and it is required to limit the intake of certain products.
It is compulsory during the treatment to visit doctors, undergo examinations and examinations - the Shevchenko's method of treatment is not an unconditional guarantee of a full cure.Some healers warn their patients that such courses-ten days can last for 2-3 years.
With progressive lymphoma, it is important to support the body in the struggle for recovery. Therefore, traditional medicine strongly recommends the use of the following herbal / herbal extracts:
- Prepare the following herbs:

Mix thoroughly and pour alcohol( vodka) in an amount of 2.3 liters.This drug is insisted for 28 days, every two days the jar / bottle should be shaken well.After this time, tincture is filtered and take 1 drop in the morning.On the second day, you need to take 2 drops already and thus increase the number of drops every day by one, bringing the total amount by one dose to 35 drops.Then the scheme goes in the opposite direction - we reduce the amount of medicine by one drop every day and return to the initial figure( 1 drop per day).Please note: the tincture can be diluted in 100 ml of water for better perception.It is recommended to take 2-3 courses of treatment with this herbal collection according to the proposed scheme.

Before you start taking alcohol tinctures of medicinal herbs, be sure to get advice from your doctor - many of the plants cause an allergic reaction in people, and weakening of the body with this condition with lymphoma will give a negative dynamics.
Lymphoma belongs to the category of cancer, but this does not mean that the patient is sentenced.Modern methods of treatment allow in some cases to make quite favorable predictions, but patients should not rely only on one particular specific treatment option.Only an integrated approach to getting rid of the oncological disease under consideration( use, including folk methods of treatment) can give high chances for a full recovery without relapse.
