Herbal Remedies For Cancer - Crab Care Pack For Advance Stages

Abstract

Cancer is a generic term that is used for various diseases that develop in any part of the body. Hearing about the diagnosis of cancer is very stressful and terrifying for everyone. Because we know what can be the result of this disease, how well can our medicines control the growth of this disease. We know this disease is difficult to treat and some other terms are also used to define cancers like malignant tumours, and neoplastic growths. In this disease, abnormal cells grow beyond their usual boundaries and can invade near structures that are healthy, it is called metastasis. This is the main cause of death in the recent few years. In this article, we are going to discuss cancer, its causes, symptoms, and ayurvedic management of this disease.

Cancer Disease

Introduction

Cancer causes abnormal growth of cells to divide uncontrollably and spreads all over the body. It can start from anywhere and can be spread up to million-billions of cells. The normal mechanism of the body is for human cells to grow and multiply in the body and after some time or according to the life span of the cell they become old and die after some time interval. They die and new cells take their place; this is a natural mechanism that happens in everyone's body. Cells growth may be called cancerous or non-cancerous, non-cancerous is benign in nature, it doesn't spread just like a lump of tissue.

What Causes Cancer?

Cancer starts from the division of normal cells into cancerous cells in different stages. Cancer is caused due to mutation in the cells. This is all due to the changes in the person's genetic factors and various external factors.

The incidence of cancer starts according to age, and builds up the risks for specific cancers that leads to higher chances of having cancer with age. Some specific genetic changes lead to developing the proto-oncogenes, tumour suppressor genes, and the repairing of DNA genes, which are called 'drivers' of cancer.

Gene mutations do -

  • Rapid cell growth leads to creating a lump of the same mutated cells.
  • Fails to stop the uncontrolled growth and collide with healthy cells and engulfs them to change into cancerous cells.

Symptoms

Symptoms vary according to the affected site, but here we are discussing some general signs and symptoms -

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Changes in weight
  • Changes in skin colour
  • Feeling of lump
  • Redness over the affected site, or formation of sores etc.
  • Trouble breathing sometimes
  • Unexplained fatigue and weakness
  • Constant joint pains or muscle spasms
  • Bleeding or bruising

Risk Factors

  • Age - This is common after mid-age, else there are more chances to develop this disease in the older stage but it can occur at any age.
  • A sedentary lifestyle can be a major risk factor for the development of cancer. Persistent alcohol intake, increased sun exposure, and direct UV radiation can develop various types of cancers.
  • If there is a history of cancer in the family then the chances of getting diagnosed with cancer may increase.
  • Environmental issues like the smoke from cigarettes, or exposure to any chemical fumes, may play a major role in developing cancer.

Facts About Cancer

  • Cancer is a leading cause of death all over the world. Around 1 in 6 people died due to cancer last year. Last year approx 10 million people died due to this condition.
  • These incidents are increased due to increased alcohol intake, tobacco consumption, low fibrous diet, and less physical activities.
  • Most commonly occurring cancers are lung, breast, colon, rectum, and prostate.
  • Cancers can be treated well if detected in early stages.

Ayurvedic View And Its Management

Ayurveda is a holistic science that deals with herbal medicines. The main goal of Ayurvedic therapy is to find the ultimate cause of an illness and remove this cause from its roots. Ayurveda is a therapy that helps to maintain the balance of doshas, also called energies of the body. Cancer is correlated with karka roga in Ayurveda.
