5 Views on Leukaemia - Its Cause and Treatment

1. Medical

According to two of the most prestigious medical diagnosticians, Professors Whiting and Sutton, Leukaemia is usually characterized by the presence of immature white blood cells accompanied by severe anaemia.

The symptoms seen during the course of this complaint are: - haemorrhages into the skin and mucous membranes, - oral ulceration, - fever, and - occasional enlargement of the lymph glands and spleen

If a subject presents these symptoms they can assume that they have what is medically recognised as Leukaemia.

2. Chiropractic

According to James N. Firth, who is recognised as an authority on chiropractic diagnosis, Leukaemia constitutes a condition in which; - there is a great increase in the number of white blood cells, - enlargement of the spleen, lymph glands and bone marrow

While the chiropractic diagnosis is very similar to the medical diagnosis the chiropractor recognises that there are spinal subluxations present in the liver, spleen, kidney and lumbar areas of the spine and these should be adjusted towards normality.

The discoverer and developer of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer does not mince matters when he advises the practitioner to adjust the 7th dorsal vertebra and even goes so far as to say that the adjuster should stand on the left side of the patient and adjust towards the right shoulder.

Surely such specific instructions would indicate that Palmer had some experience in the treatment of this complaint.

3. Osteopathy

The osteopath accepts the general diagnosis of blood diseases as made by the medical profession but as might be expected, adopts a more scientific, positive and optimistic stance in relation to treatment.

Dr A.T. Still, the first osteopath advised that the cause of the nerve irritation must be found and removed before the channels (arteries, veins and lymph vessels) can relax and open sufficiently to admit free passage of the fluids being obstructed.

4. Natural Hygiene

According to Dr James Neuhauser, Leukaemia is; - cancer of the blood in which the body produces too many white blood cells - the first sign may be bone pain, joint pains and blood in the urine

And... in his opinion there seems to be "no recourse." (This latter statement seems to be a confession that he does not know how to reverse this disease).

This is, of course, in line with the opinion shared by most hygienists, including Dr Herbert M. Shelton, that cancer is an irreversible pathology.

5. Nature Cure

In 1883, Louis Kuhne, one of our earliest naturopaths, said that in order to effect a radical cure of every disease: "We must proceed to transform the chronic condition into an acute one. By means of this crisis the body will be enabled to expel the foreign matter which is causing the complaint."

Nature's Solution to all Disease/Symptoms

1) Remove Causes

We should remove as many obstructions as possible.

These may be chemical, mental or mechanical. Chemical obstructions are removed by a rational adjustment of the food intake and cessation of the intake of harmful drugs or remedies. Physical obstructions may be removed by way of Chiropractic/Osteopathic or via Naprapathy. Mental obstructions should be attended to via a positive mental health program.

2) Provide a Healthy Environment

We should provide the optimal biological needs such as sunlight, fresh air, pure water, exercise, relaxation and mental poise.

3) Rest

When the Healing Crisis occurs, we should fast until the body indicates that it has done as much as it can under the prevailing circumstances.
