What is MDS – Myelodysplastic Leukemia Treatment

What is MDS – Myelodysplastic Syndromes and Leukemia Treatment

This is a blood related medical condition which was earlier known as Preleukemia. The Myelodysplastic syndromes affect the blood leading to ineffective production of myeloid blood cells. Leukemia is blood cancer and can be of Acute or Chronic types. The treatment of Myelodysplastic syndromes is the same as of Blood cancer ayurvedic treatment.

The patients suffering from this condition of preleukemia develop anemia, which is severe in natural and need regular blood transfusions. In most cases, the disease develops in cytopenias i.e. low blood counts of all types of blood cells. This is because of the progressive bone marrow failure.

Preleukemia and Blood Cancer

The myelodysplastic syndromes state is also called Preleukemia and In about 35 % of the patients suffering from MDS, the disease progresses into acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), also known as Blood cancer in common language. This happens within a few months to a few years.

The myelodysplastic syndromes are disorders of stem cells in bone marrow. In MDS, the blood production process becomes disorderly and ineffective. The number of quality blood making cells decrease quickly which leads to improper blood production.

Symptoms of Blood Cancer or Myelodysplastic Syndromes

Usually the myelodysplastic syndromes lead to blood cancers and the MDS is usually diagnosed at the age between 60 to 75. The MDS is rare in Children. The males are affected more than females. The signs and symptoms of myelodysplastic syndrome are –

  1. Anemia – Low RBC count or low Hemoglobin – Shortness of Breath, weakness
  2. Neutropenia – Low White blood cells – decreased immunity – recurrent infections.
  3. Thrombocytopenia – Low platelet count – Frequent bleeding with blue patches on the body. The body gets bruised easily due to hemorrhage under the skin.
  4. Many people remain symptom less and these findings are sometimes found as a part of routine blood analysis.
  5. Enlarged spleen and liver
  6. Acute myelogenous leukemia develops in later stages of Myelodysplastic syndromes. Leukemia developed because of underlying myelodysplastic syndrome is difficult to treat.
  7. There are more chances of patient getting into life threating situations due to anemia, neutropenia, thrombocytopenia

Although there is some risk for developing acute myelogenous leukemia, about 50% of deaths occur as a result of bleeding or infection. Leukemia that occurs as a result of myelodysplasia is notoriously resistant to treatment.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Leukemia and MDS

According to Ayurveda, the fire energy imbalance leads to blood cancers. The "Pita" especially the Ranjak Pitta is in highly volatile state. The fire energy imbalance is responsible for this syndrome.

Ayurveda believes that if we neutralize this fire energy imbalance, then the disease can be brought under control and treated well. There are certain ayurvedic bhasma medicines and herbs which are useful in treatment of MDS and blood cancers.

The Silver preparations, the Sulphur preparations, the copper preparations, the processed pearls and other ayurvedic gems are used as a combination to treat this dreadful disease.

The Ayurvedic treatment using metals and minerals is called "Ras Shastra" in Ayurveda and can be understood as ancient alchemy. It is being practiced in India since ages and is quiet safe and can be used along with ongoing radiotherapy, chemotherapy or any other treatments.

There are no side effects as this ayurvedic combination is mainly focused in restoring the normalcy rather than killing any cells or fighting with anybody processes. So side effects are not there and the results are good. The cooling herbs and bhasma medicines are used.
