Leukaemia is a cancer of white blood cells. Chronic leukaemia means the condition progresses slowly over many years. Chronic leukaemia is classified according to the type of white blood cells that are affected by cancer.
There are two main types:
-lymphocytes – mostly used to fight viral infections
-myeloid cells – which perform several different functions, such as fighting -bacterial infections, defending the body against parasites and preventing the spread of tissue damage
These pages focus on chronic myeloid leukaemia, which is a cancer of the myeloid cells.
What happens in chronic leukaemia.
Your bone marrow produces stem cells. These are unique cells because they have the ability to develop into three important types of blood cells:
-red blood cells – carry oxygen around the body
-white blood cells – help fight infection
-platelets – which help stop bleeding
In leukaemia, a genetic mutation in the stem cells causes a huge overproduction of white blood cells and a corresponding drop in red blood cells and platelets.
It’s this lack of red blood cells which causes symptoms of anaemia, such as tiredness, and the lack of platelets that increases the risk of excessive bleeding.
In its early stages, chronic myeloid leukaemia usually causes no noticeable symptoms and it is often diagnosed during tests for a different condition.
When symptoms do develop, they are similar to those of many other illnesses and can include:
-unexplained weight loss
-a feeling of bloating
-less commonly, swollen lymph nodes – glands found in the neck and under your arms, which are usually painless
Chronic myeloid leukaemia can also cause swelling in your spleen (an organ that helps to filter impurities from your blood). This can cause a lump to appear on the left side of your abdomen, which may be painful when touched. A swollen spleen can also put pressure on your stomach, causing a lack of appetite and indigestion.
The symptoms of chronic myeloid leukaemia in its advanced stage will be much more noticeable and troublesome. They include:
-easily bruised skin
In the evening, topically apply 15 drops Cell Rejuvenation, over the spine.
Always spread capsules over the course of the day, if you have to ingest many, not more than two capsules at a time. Spreading the capsules throughout the day assists the body with proper absorption. Always good to have a very small snack/fruit before drinking capsules.
To manage fever :
Topically apply on the neck, heart and back, a blend of Frankincense 5ml 10ml and Peppermint 5ml 10ml, mixed with a carrier oil (olive, coconut or grapeseed). Ratio : 4 drops pure oil and 4 drops carrier oil.
Oil Pulling Recipe and Method
Mix 7.5ml of each: Myrrh, Frankincense, Clove, Lemon, Peppermint with 500ml olive or coconut oil. Use this mix to swish for about 5 minutes (gradually work up to 10 or 20 minutes) once a day, 1 tablespoon. Don’t do it vigorously since you’ll be doing it for far longer than you are used to and your jaw will get tired. Gently swirl the oil around your mouth and suck it through the spaces between your teeth. Make sure not to swallow any of it. When finished, spit the oil in the dustbin. Don’t spit it in the sink because when the oil thickens after cooling, it may clog up your pipes.
