Autoimmune diseases are those in which unnatural cell production (tumors) begin to flourish in the body. When the body detects the tumor, it begins to attack both healthy and unhealthy cells. Because cancer is a form of autoimmune disease, boosting the immune system of the body is the first priority in homeopathic treatment for mesothelioma.
Proponents of natural medicine suggest that mesothelioma can be fought by using herbal supplements. One immune-boosting herbal supplement is mistletoe. Mistletoe can be refined, having what is known as the Iscador removed and processed into pill form. Another commonly-used herbal supplement is Essiac. Essiac is a blend of herbs that are usually used for making tea. Some people believe that essiac has cancer-curing properties. Finally, some evidence has shown that shark cartilage can prevent the body’s ability to spontaneously grow new blood vessels. This is important because cancer tumors reproduce in much the same way as blood vessels are formed.
As with any non-traditional approaches to medicine, it is important to consult a physician before beginning treatment. The validity of homeopathic medications as treatment for serious life-threatening diseases has always been in dispute. Many homeopathic remedies lack federal approval as a means to thwart illness and disease progression. Discuss your specific condition with a doctor to find if homeopathic remedies can be used as a supplement for your diagnosis.
