Lymphadenectomy – removal of lymph nodes (Breast Cancer)


A few days ago, a cancer patient asked me the following question, I am sharing it here for the benefit of others.

Q: What happens when they remove all the lymph nodes on the left / right armpit, have I got any more defence at all on that part or even it is minimized?

Dear Ms…….,

You have raised an interesting question. I would respond to it as follows:

The lymphatic system is a network of tubes that carries a clear fluid called lymph from your cells to the bloodstream. Lymph nodes are kidney beans like structures located throughout the lymphatic system, in the armpits as well.

Lymph nodes function is to fight infection, filter lymph fluid. Lymph nodes efficiently trap pathogens like bacteria, other waste materials from the cells and destroy them by triggering an immune response. Therefore, a healthy lymphatic system is pivotal to fight infectious diseases and disease like cancer.

In case of breast cancer oncologist after removing a cancerous tissue also recommend to take out nearby lymph nodes to avoid the spread of cancer. The lymph node nearest to the original cancer site are called sentinel lymph nodes. An oncologist can remove a single sentinel lymph node to verify the presence of cancer cells, by performing a biopsy. If cancer cells are present there then it is sensible and advisable to remove the neighbouring lymph nodes to eliminate the chance of spread of cancer cells.

If cancer cells are not present in the sentinel lymph node/s then removing cancer-free lymph nodes is not a sensible choice.

Since there are thousands of cancer patients these oncologists have to see, therefore an easy and cost-effective approach for them is to remove all the lymph nodes, in the neighbourhood of the original tumour site.

Besides other comparatively minor side effects after lymphadenectomy (the medical term for lymph node removal), there is a possibility a patient whose lymph nodes have removed suffers from lymphoedema (swelling due to poor drainage lymph fluid), mostly this condition is developed if lymph nodes are removed and the patient has had radiotherapy treatment as well.

Last but not least, from the side of the body where lymph nodes are removed. Left side or right side, the immune system in this side might not be able to function optimally!

More lymph nodes and vessels are removed, greater could be the immunodeficiency syndrome on that side of the body. This side of the body is more prone to attack by bacteria, fungi and other pathogens. This can lead to the development of lymphoedema (infection) as explained above and subsequently patient has to use course/s of antibiotic drugs to overcome this infection.

Hence, from this info. one can see an oncologist should perform a biopsy of sentinel lymph node/s. On confirmation of the presence of neoplastic cells in the sentinel lymph node/s lymphadenectomy is advisable for this affected lymph node/s only.

Hope this information will help now.

Kind regards,

S

Homeoprophylaxis (HP) @ Mind-Body Clinic


Nature has provided our body with all the necessary tools to eradicate any foreign invaders such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, allergens, and other parasites. As well as this, at the same time, our body cells are fully capable of repairing themselves from internal malfunctioning. If damaged body cells become irreparable then another biological system kicks in due to which damaged cells are terminated by triggering the process of cell suicide – known as apoptosis.

Introduction To The Health Care Benefits of the Sequence Specific Homeopathic DNA (SSHD) Remedy System.


Abstract.

It is now established that homeopathic remedies interact with the genetic blueprint and increase the expression of many genes. These new findings have permitted the development of an advanced form of homeopathic DNA, the sequence-specific homeopathic DNA (SSHD) remedy system. The SSHD system takes advantage of a wide range of medical, scientific and genetic discoveries. These new SSHD remedies enable the practitioner to offer a wider range of health care benefits to the community.

CoQ10- A Miracle Nutrient and Sequence Specific Homeopathic DNA (SSHD)


CoQ10 is an analogue of coenzyme Q (CoQ). There are different forms of CoQ but CoQ10 is the only form which the human body can assimilate. We couldn’t live more than a few minutes without oxygen, more than a few days without water or more than a few weeks without food. It is also a fact that the body cannot survive without CoQ10. If your level of CoQ start dropping then your health is adversely affected.

Alzheimer Disease – Diabetes Type 3


The term diabetes type 3 has been used in relation to Alzheimer’s disease, by scientists. In recent years there have been important advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease. It is now a well-established fact that the principal cause of Alzheimer disease is excessive deposition of the protein beta-amyloid [1] in the brain. The excess beta-amyloid forms “plaques” which surround nerve cells in the brain, stopping them from working properly in the brain.

Homeopathic Gene Targeting Technology

SSHD – Sequence Specific Homeopathic DNA

All external, as well as internal body surfaces, which the immune system cannot reach, are continuously exposed to infectious agents such as harmful bacteria. DEFB1 is a very important bactericidal protein that forms the body’s first line of defence against infectious agents. It is produced by cells in body surfaces such as skin. It has been shown to inhibit the infectivity of the AIDS virus and cause cancer cells to self-destruct.

The New Form of Asthma & SSHD Remedy STeP1


Introduction.

Scientific investigations have now confirmed that homeopathic remedies can interact with the genetic blueprint and increase the expression of many genes. Because the human genome contains genes that promote health as well as genes that cause disease when their expression is increased, it became important to be able to control the specificity of homeopathic remedy/genetic blueprint interactions.
