Ayurvedic Treatment of Blood Cancer - Leukemia Diet by Chandigarh-India Doctor - Vikram Chauhan- MD

We often hear this dreadful disease’s name nowadays. The name is so dreadful that it is sufficient to give a shock of lifetime to all family members beside the patient.

Although there is so much advancement in the field of medicine but still the doctors find themselves in a difficult situation dealing with blood cancers. The chemotherapy and radiotherapy has so many side effects sometimes that it becomes a part of disease rather than curing it.

(AML, CML )  

1.    Acute Myelocytic Leukemia – ( AML )  Acute myeloid leukemia is a type of cancer that starts from bone marrow and the tissue which is inside the bones. This tissue helps to form blood cells. The cancer grows from the cells that were suppose to become white blood cells. It develops quickly, that’s why it’s called Acute and can prove fatal if not treated quickly.   

2.    Chronic Myelocytic Leukemia – (CML ) Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is cancer that starts inside bone marrow. This is the soft tissue in the center of bones that helps form all blood cells. CML causes an uncontrolled growth of immature cells that make a certain type of white blood cell called myeloid cells. Many patients discover the problem accidently and in accelerated phase it causes fever, bone pain, spleen enlargement, sweating, fatigue, weakness and bruising.  

3.    Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma- It is a type of cancer of the lymphatic tissue. Main symptoms are night sweats, fever and chilles ( on and off), swollen  lymph nodes, weight loss, shortness of breath, swellings, nausea, vomiting, headaches.

Blood cancer Treatment in Ayurveda

Ayurveda or natural medicine has always helped so many cancer patients to fight this dreadful disorder handsomely. Sometimes the patients are not willing to go solely for ayurvedic treatment of their blood cancer. They want chemotherapy or radiotherapy as advised by the doctors. I am not against chemotherapy or radiotherapy but I would always suggest start Ayurvedic treatment for Blood Cancer along with the ongoing modern medical treatments. The Ayurvedic treatment is rejuvenating in nature. Take some nourishing ayurvedic supplements which are helpful in protecting the healthy cells and regulate the metabolism of the body and stops progression or acceleration of cancer.

Staunch followers of Ayurveda, can take complete Ayurvedic treatment for his blood cancers– Acute Myelocytic leukemia or Chronic Myelocytic leukemia or Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

1.    The Ayurvedic treatment of Leukemia can be used as an adjuvant to ongoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
2.    It can be used as a rejuvenative, preventive and life prolonging and curative therapy in many
3.    The preparations used in Ayurveda, slows down the progress of the disease and sometimes put them in complete remission phase.
4.    Ayurvedic herbs help to minimize the side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
5.    Ayurvedic medicines can help to clear the cancer in many cases.

More Information about DIET IN LEUKEMIA - BLOOD CANCER 

Warm food, Fresh Food – Vegetable soup made from fresh green leafy vegetables is recommended.

God made foods are good rather than man made (Processed) – as this machine is made by God and not by man

Nature knows which fuel is good for this human machine. Most of the things which grow in fields, trees, and forests are good. Packaged food, processed food is very bad. Soft drinks are bad because they provide CO2 (carbon di-oxide) and deprive living cells of oxygen.

Ghee is always recommended in all types of Blood Cancers. In such cancers, Vata and Pitta are highly vitiated and in imbalanced state. Bramhi Ghritam, Maha Chaitas Ghritam, Ashwagandha Ghritam, Triphala Ghritam etc. are excellent.

Swamla compound ( made from amla base), Maharishi Amrit Kalash are various preparations which can be added depending upon various conditions.  Coconut water should be consumed everyday early morning to neutralize the toxins produced by acidic diet in the body.

Fruit juices should be consumed one fruit juice at a time or in a day. For example fruit juice of Apple, Water melons and avoid sour fruit juices like Lemons, Oranges. For vitamin C, Amla fruit berries are excellent, and although they are sour but they become sweet in “Vipaka” ( Metabolic property) after digestion. So they are good. Amla berries are there in Amalaki Rasayan, All chawyanprash, and other herbal jams of Ayurveda.
Fresh Beetroot juice is very important. 30-100 ml daily is recommended to boost immunity and improve blood count.

Use of Zuchini, Bottle Gourds, Long Gourds, Round Gourds, Turnips, Carrots, Radishes is recommended. They are good for all types of diseases caused by Pitta imbalance. Use of Giloy  (Tinospora cordifolia) is recommended. Wheat grass juice, Amla Juice is also recommended.
Green leafy vegetables should be made into soup every evening. Potatoes are fine but fried are not recommended. Mushrooms are very high in protein and increase fire element in the body. So they should be consumed after few days gap only and are fine if the patient is having protein energy malnutrition or low energy or muscle mass.

Butter is not recommended but Ghee is recommended.
High protein diet should be avoided.
All non-vegetarian diet should be avoided.
Non-Vegetarian soup and small chicken chunks are allowed if the patient is very weak, otherwise it will increase Pitta, which is the root cause of the disease.
Wheat and mix of various grains breads / chapatti is recommended.
Rice are not recommended and should be avoided. Once or twice in a week, mixed with various herbs and spices (made as Pulao) can be consumed.

Avoiding Constipation in MDS, Blood Cancers and other cancers

Consitpation should be avoided at all costs. Consuming soups of green leafy vegetables, consuming fruits like papaya, melons, apples, pears and coconut water will help to get rid of constipation and improve appetite.

Don’t force feed and let the appetite generate itself. It is written in Ayurveda, if there is no food, the digestive fire will burn the “ama” (toxins) . So it is good to keep a fast once a week to enlighten the digestive fire and improve appetite. Keep fast on coconut water or soups.

Apple rich diet for MDS and other cancers

Apples are excellent for all tumors/ cancers. Fresh apples, without pesticides spray should be consumed almost every day.

Don’t mix them with Yogurt or milk. Consuming whole, along with the peel is recommended as it is rich in quercitin but washing for about 5 minutes is recommended to clear the disinfectants.

Locally grown apples are recommended rather than imported, as they are sprayed with chemicals. 1-2 apples a day are fine.

Alcohol, beer should be stopped at all costs.
