Symptoms of acute leukemia in adults


Acute leukemia is a disease that today can be successfully cured, and the course and outcome of cure depend on a timely detection of symptoms and starting the therapy. Diet in leukemia is extremely important, almost as much as taking drugs, and with medical therapy it is advised consuming beneficial herbal drinks.

What causes leukemia?

Leukemia is a cancer of the bone marrow, which a very important part of the immune system, which produces white and red blood cells and platelets. White blood cells help your body to fight off infections, red carry oxygen from the lungs to all organs in the body, while platelets clot blood. Stem cells in bone marrow create new, which develop into white and red blood cells or platelets in adequate quantities. With the advent of leukemia, the bone marrow starts to produce immature white blood cells, called "blasts", which serve no purpose and outnumber normal cells thereby preventing their proper functioning. Although acute leukemia tough a malignant disease, cure is possible, especially if the disease is detected in time.

Types of leukemia

Leukemia is classified into myeloid and lymphocytic, depending on the type of white blood cells affected, as well as chronic and acute. Acute leukemia is known by very sharp beginning and a very rapid development, while chronic leukemia occurs slowly, for years, even decades, and is more common in the third period of age. Acute lymphocytic leukemia is caused by cancerous changes in the cells, and acute myeloid leukemia is caused by cancerous changes in the cells that produce neutrophils, basophils, and monocytes eozinoile. Unknown is the cause of leukemia, but is always associated with damage to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Experts point out that the emergence of this disease affects the genetic heritage combined with the factor of protection. Also, acute leukemia is often present in people with Down syndrome.

Symptoms of acute leukemia

The most common early symptoms of leukemia are frequent bruising, unexplained fatigue, bone pain, persistent infection and fever, night sweats, a slow and long-term healing of wounds and cuts on the body. It is possible that there is enlarged liver and spleen, as well as a painless enlargement of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, groin and elsewhere. To the acute leukemia specific is exhaustion - general decline in energy, often is accompanied by nosebleeds, bleeding right and fever. Also it is possible that leukemia symptoms completely disappear and that the disease is detected by chance, at a regular medical or systematic examination. All mentioned symptoms of leukemia in adults may be a sign and other diseases, however, it is best to consult a doctor, who will determine further steps you need to take. On large number of cases acute lymphocytic leukemia is not hereditary, but to this day, medicine has failed to completely determine what causes the DNA mutations that lead to the emergence of this disease.


Official medicine notes that for the successful treatment of leukemia, the most important is good and timely diagnosis. To confirm leukemia symptoms in adults and children need to make the following analysis:
  • peripheral blood smear
  • puncture of bone marrow
  • immunophenotyping cells of peripheral blood or bone marrow
  • cytogenetic findings

Bone marrow puncture procedure is performed under local anesthesia, but in some cases it is necessary to do a biopsy of bone. Besides the odd-specific analysis there should be performed a routine blood tests, ECG and X-ray of the heart and lungs. If diagnosed with acute leukemia most often used is chemotherapy and radiation. Chemotherapy, or injecting of drugs in blood, destroys the abnormal cells. Since this therapy is not selective, it destroys healthy cells. Antibiotics are also used to support the treatment of infections or as a form of prevention. Ionizing radiation also destroys malignant cells. The cure of this disease is possible, but the course of treatment and outcome depend on its timely detection, and is of great importance to timely recognize the symptoms of leukemia.


What alternative medicine recommends and more and more official allopathic medicine suggests is the importance of nutrition. Nutrition in leukemia advises to remove from the menu all foods of animal origin. Blood must be alkalized and this is best achieved with fresh raw food and fresh filtered, fruits and vegetables. Acute leukemia is a serious illness and its treatment needs patience, a positive attitude and faith in life. It is inevitable to waiver of certain types of foods, and it should last for months, even years. It is believed that strict fasting with drinking freshly squeezed juices is the best choice to be followed for a few months, but only under professional supervision. When patients stop taking solid foods, they will have more energy and vitality and the necessary enzymes, vitamins and minerals will get out of juice. Simply put, large amounts of energy are much needed in the healing process.


Many advocates of alternative medicine to going to throw away everything we have written in the first part of the text, almost all to work with raw food, as it pertains to the treatment of leukemia with allopathic methods, which definitely has a lot of flaws, and sometimes does more harm than good. In developed countries Western Europe as well as in the United States, more people are turning to alternative treatment.  Many of the foods are financially inaccessible, and if you take into account the price of a premium juicer, treating leukemia naturally becomes almost impossible. We will below give basic guidelines for the preparation of juices and raw food, but will mention the proven methods of treatment such as Gerson method and organic coffee enema, which yields excellent results when it comes to acute leukemia in adults.

Green juice with corn

The juice of wheat grass (green juice of corn) has proven to be very effective in the case of many malignancies, especially leukemia. This juice anticancer works due to high concentration of vitamin BI7, known as the killer of cancer. Also, juice of wheat grass is an excellent tool for strengthening the immune system and improvement of blood, to the patients with acute leukemia this is crucially important. Chlorophyll, which is abundant in this juice, the molecular composition is very similar to hemoglobin in human blood, and is responsible for transporting oxygen by so called liquid oxygen that cleans the blood.

Acute leukemia is not a disease that can be left to chance, it takes consistency, dedication, discipline and perseverance in the treatment. We give you another very good recipe for regeneration of bone marrow:
  • Scoop dolomite powder, goat or sheep (not cow) feta-cheese, 1 teaspoon of ghee (purified butter, is sold in health food stores), 1 chopped pickled cucumber, raw spinach and chili pepper powder.
  • This is mixed and consumed several times a day. It is thought that's in the short term it renews bone marrow.

Herbalists recommend the excellent yarrow tea, and it should be implemented as soon as possible when leukemia. It acts directly on bone marrow by stimulating the regeneration of blood, which is why it is recommended in case of leukemia. Drink tea, practice healing baths with tincture.

Tea mixtures against leukemia

Sweden twigs against leukemia 

Three teaspoons of Sweden bitter is diluted in three cups of herbal tea. Recommend are the wraps of the Swedish twigs are to be kept for four hours a day on the liver and spleen, as well as steam packs of horsetail.

Enema with organic coffee

Coffee enema is used to clean the liver through the walls of the colon. The liver is particularly vulnerable in patients with diseases as acute leukemia, but this method is required if we want to be sure of improving our healing and it was developed by the famous doctor of natural medicine Max Gerson. Organic coffee enema is performed as follows:
  • In a saucepan pour a liter of water and 3 tablespoons of organic coffee (purely organic) and cook in an open container for three minutes from the moment of boiling.
  • Then cover the pot to simmer for 15 minutes at a lower temperature.
  • Add more water if necessary to make it about a liter of liquid. Allow the liquid to be cooled, and strain.
  • Coffee enema is performed in the supine position (lying on the right side), and the enema liquid is put into the colon.
  • In the same position stay 10-15 minutes, and then sit on the toilet bowl and let the liquid drain out.

Acute leukemia experiences

The doctors of the official medicine do not like a lot to talk about prognosis of this difficult disease. Chances for the survival of leukemia exist, and doctors rely heavily on cytogenetic findings, which are further directed in therapy. As a last resort in the most severe patients, acute leukemia is treated by transplantation of bone marrow and a very aggressive therapy. On the other hand Gresham method is recommended by alternative medicine, and is not an easier, as it is required by each individual, which is a great turning point in life, a complete reversal in the diet and habits. Great number of patients relies on allopathic medicine, which often does not bring results, then commit to the alternative. Basically it is a big mistake because chemotherapy and radiation significantly weaken immunity and then acute leukemia can be cured much harder with raw food.
