AS PER AYURVEDA ASPECT

Ayurveda is referred to as the natural healing process that treats the symptoms related to cancer without any side effects. In Ayurveda, cancer is referred to as "Arbuda" in which there is formation of tumors due to the division of cells uncontrollably. The main cause of cancer is the vitiation of Vata, Pitta and Kapha dosha with the involvement of Agni (digestive fire), sapta dhatus (body tissues) and strotas (body channels).

AS PER MODERN ASPECT

Cancer starts in the body when the cells begin to grow uncontrollably. There are various kinds of cancers and cells in any body part may become cancer.

Leukemias are the cancers that develop into different types of blood cells. Mostly it starts in the early forms of white blood cells and some in other blood cells. Leukemia may be acute (grows fast) or chronic (grows slowly) which may start in lymphoid or myeloid cells.

WHAT IS ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA?

Acute myeloid leukemia is a condition which starts in the bone marrow (soft and inner part of the brain where there is a formation of new blood cells) and moves quickly into the blood that spreads to other parts of the body which includes the liver, spleen, lymph nodes, brain, spinal cord and testicles. Sometimes these cells turn into white blood cells and also develop into other types of blood-forming cells.

This condition is characterized by the overproduction of immature white blood cells which are called leukemic blasts or myeloblasts. These cells crowd the bone marrow thus prevent the formation of normal blood cells. These dangerous cells can spill into the bloodstream and circulate around the body. These cells are immature so they are unable to prevent or fight against infection.

In many cases the cause of this disease is unknown but in some cases, it may result from damage to one or more of the genes that control the blood cells development.
