Learn about Acute myeloid leukaemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer that starts in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow, the soft inner part of the bones. It is characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that gather in the bone marrow, preventing it from producing normal blood cells. The prevalence of AML varies worldwide, but it is considered a relatively rare type of cancer. Despite its rarity, it's one of the most common acute leukemia types affecting adults. Understanding how to approach AML through both conventional and natural treatments is key to managing this condition.


The exact cause of Acute myeloid leukemia is not fully understood, but several factors are known to increase the risk of developing this condition. These include exposure to radiation, certain chemicals like benzene, previous chemotherapy or radiation therapy, and genetic disorders such as Down syndrome. AML is also more common in older adults, suggesting age may be a contributing factor.


Signs and symptoms

- Persistent fatigue or weakness - Fever or frequent infections - Easy bruising or bleeding - Shortness of breath - Weight loss without trying - Frequent or severe nosebleeds - Bone pain or tenderness - Swollen lymph nodes, enlarged liver or spleen

Diagnosing Acute myeloid leukaemia

Diagnosis of AML typically involves a series of tests starting with a complete blood count (CBC) to measure the levels of blood cells in the blood. If AML is suspected, a bone marrow biopsy might be performed to confirm the diagnosis and determine the specific type of AML, as there are several subtypes. Additional tests, including molecular genetic tests, can help predict the course of the disease and guide treatment options.


Prevention and natural treatment

Prevention of Acute myeloid leukemia, given its unclear causes, is challenging. However, reducing exposure to known risk factors, such as avoiding radiation exposure and harmful chemicals, may help lower the risk. When it comes to treatment, the functional medicine approach focuses on supporting the body's natural healing processes in conjunction with conventional treatments like chemotherapy. Dietary changes, with an emphasis on a nutrient-rich diet full of vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains, can support overall health. Supplements like vitamin D, methylated folate, and antioxidants may also support health during treatment, but it's important to consult a healthcare provider first. Stress reduction techniques such as yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises can help manage the emotional and physical stress of an AML diagnosis and treatment. Detoxification methods, improved sleep hygiene, and regular exercise tailored to the patient's capacity are also components of a well-rounded functional medicine approach to supporting AML treatment. It's crucial to work closely with a healthcare provider knowledgeable in both conventional and functional medicine to create a personalized treatment plan that includes monitoring for possible drug interactions and side effects. Functional medicine offers supportive care that can complement standard AML treatments, potentially improving quality of life and outcomes for those with the condition.
