Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – Alternative Treatment & Therapie

All malignant diseases of the lymphatic system (malignant lymphomas) are grouped together under the collective term of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), which are not a Hodgkin’s disease. The reason for this categorisation is mainly historic. The diseases which are grouped together under this generic term are very different. This applies to the underlying genetic changes, the immunological characteristics, as well as the clinical manifestations. The treatment of NHL is therefore also very different.

NHL is divided into a B – (about 80 percent of all NHL) and a T-type (20 percent), depending on whether the NHL is based on B lymphoid or T lymphoid cells. Rarely, NHL can be based on the so-called NK cells. Currently approximately 15 in every 100,000 people are developing this disease.

The initial symptoms of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma are those of hodgkin’s lymphomas (however, histologically NO hodgkin or sternberg-reed cells are detectable). At the time of diagnosis, other organs are already involved in many patients, especially the gastrointestinal tract and ENT areas. Stomach and intestinal problems are often a result of a malignant infiltration.

The following symptoms occur: swelling of the lymph nodes, a weight loss of more than 10 percent in six months, recurring sweats, and fever of unknown origin. Also bone marrow infiltration (resulting in a detectable anaemia and leukopenia the blood) and splenomegaly (enlargement of the spleen) can be signs of the disease.

Histologically, the diagnosis is made by biopsy of an affected node. In addition to the histomorphological examination, special staining techniques are applied to precisely classify the obtained biopsy material. In addition, chest radiography, ultrasonography of the abdominal cavity, CT of the neck, thorax, and abdomen, as well a bone marrow puncture for the extraction of bone marrow histology to exclude a bone marrow infection, are included in the diagnosis.

At the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover we recommend for the treatment of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma the following therapies:

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)
Patients with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma can be successfully treated at the Hyperthermia Centre Hanover with IPT Insulin potentiation therapy, which uses the hormone insulin to inject drugs more effectively in the tumour cells. Because the degenerate blood cells of the lymphatic system have a higher basal metabolic rate than normal cells, they attempt to absorb sugar more quickly after a period of low blood sugar. The mechanism is via so-called insulin receptors. Because tumour cells in the lymphatic system have in general more of the so-called ‘insulin receptors’ than normal cells, chemotherapy can therefore impact on the malignant cells more effectively. As a result the dosage of conventional chemotherapy protocols can be reduced, and thus the side effects can also be significantly lowered.

The Wega test is performed on patients with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma using a low pulse current device which is used to search for interference fields in the body by means of electrical stimulation. In addition, the therapists at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover can derive details of the condition of the energy level of a patient, which is extremely helpful for the efficient treatment of NHL: Based on Electro acupuncture, according to Dr. Voll the Wega-test detects inflammation, organ stress or interference fields in the posterior region or recognizes organ correlations and analyses the effect of viruses, bacteria or pollutants.

During the bio-resonance testing we analyse in the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover, substances and their effect on the body of patients with malignant lymphoma. This is very fast and is completely painless. In many cases we can find which problem in the patient can lead to ill health (such as heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, Electro Smog, dental materials, allergens etc.), which is essential for an efficient treatment of non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. As an essential addition to other treatments and examinations, the bio-resonance testing can give important diagnostic and therapeutic assistance.

Nutritional counselling / therapy
Diet alone cannot defeat non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, but vital substance-rich whole food nutrition and enough fibre can help inhibit the growth of cancer, along with the secondary plant compounds contained in many types of vegetables such as carotenoids and chlorophyll.We are happy to advise about appropriate diets that will suit you.

The nutritional therapy of Dr.Gerson aims at detoxifying the body with simultaneous addition of many fresh nutrients, which is particularly useful for patients with NHL. It includes in addition to special juices, fresh and elaborately prepared and taken throughout the day essentially high-quality fruits and vegetables. Carefully prepared at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover partly as fresh food, partly in special soups or gently cooked and steamed to retain their healing powers. The Gerson therapy is low in fat, low in sodium and proteins.

We recommend, especially for our patients with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, a special detoxification therapy: a coffee enema where coffee is passed though the gut. In the rectum, the coffee is absorbed through the intestinal mucosa into the blood and reaches the liver directly. This is done via the portal vein system. The portal vein collects the blood from the digestive organs and carries it to the liver. This portal venous blood contains also metabolites and toxins from these organs. These harmful substances along with caffeine are reduced again in the liver – our No. 1 – detoxification organ.

Infusions with high doses Vitamin C
At the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover we treat patients with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma successfully with high-doses of vitamin C. The so-called Ascorbic acid is the most popular vitamin, – and the most important antioxidant, i.e. it intercepts harmful free radicals in the body and makes them harmless – and in this way prevents degeneration in the cells. Vitamin C is also essential for the immune system and various restructuring processes in the body. When vitamin C is given in a high- dose, the treatment of NHL can be positively affected.

The neural therapy assumes that chronic ailments are caused by interference fields. Each part of the body, and each pathologically altered organ in the body, can be an interference field. For the treatment of malignant lymphoma, an anti-inflammatory anaesthetic will be injected into the abnormal tissue structure, primarily in the Head zone, which causes relief in the aching body area, and at the same time the corresponding organ- in this case the Lymphatic system.

Vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fatty acids, amino acids and enzymes must be available in the right amount and in the right relationship to each other in the body. In the case of diseases, poor living habits or an unbalanced diet, this relationship can be significantly reduced. We identify the deficient substances with a comprehensive laboratory test, and offer infusions tailored to your constitution, and specifically aimed at the NHL indicated in order to resolve deficiencies in micro, and macro nutrients. The infusions can contain amino acids (E.g. glycine, glutamine, taurine, cysteine, carnithin, carnosine, arginine, glutathione and so forth) and/or trace elements and mineral substances (such as zinc, selenium, magnesium, calcium, potassium and so forth) and vitamins (such as C and B-complex).
