Learn about Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer primarily associated with asbestos exposure. It usually affects the lining of the lungs (pleural mesothelioma) but can also be found in the lining of the abdominal cavity (peritoneal mesothelioma), heart, or testicles. Understanding natural treatments for mesothelioma focuses on improving life quality, reducing symptoms, and possibly slowing the disease’s progression. With only around 3,000 new cases diagnosed in the United States annually, it remains relatively rare, yet its impact on patients and families is profound.


The primary cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos, a group of minerals made of microscopic fibers that were once widely used in construction, automotive, military, and other industries. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested, they can become lodged in the lining of organs, causing damage that leads to mesothelioma years or even decades later. Other factors, such as genetic predispositions or a history of radiation therapy to the chest, can increase the risk of developing mesothelioma.


Signs and symptoms

- Shortness of breath - Painful coughing - Chest or abdominal pain - Unexplained weight loss - Lumps of tissue under the skin on the chest - Swelling or pain in the abdomen - Fatigue

Diagnosing Mesothelioma

Diagnosing mesothelioma involves a series of tests, starting with imaging scans such as X-rays, CT scans, or PET scans to identify abnormalities. If doctors suspect mesothelioma, a biopsy will be performed to confirm the presence of cancer cells. Blood tests may also be used to detect biomarkers indicative of mesothelioma. Because of its rarity and symptoms common to other conditions, early and accurate diagnosis can be challenging, emphasizing the importance of alerting your doctor to any potential asbestos exposure history.


Prevention and natural treatment

Prevention of mesothelioma is primarily focused on reducing exposure to asbestos. Regulations in many countries now limit the use of asbestos, and it's vital to adhere to safety protocols when asbestos exposure is possible, such as during the demolition of old buildings. Treatment options have traditionally included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, aiming to remove or kill cancer cells and reduce symptoms. However, in the realm of functional medicine and natural treatment, the focus is on supporting the body’s health while undergoing conventional treatments and addressing symptoms through non-toxic means. Diet plays a crucial role; a plant-based diet rich in antioxidants can help fight inflammation and promote overall well-being. Supplements such as vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, and certain herbal extracts like curcumin (from turmeric) have shown promise in supporting health during cancer treatment, though they should be used under medical supervision. Mind-body practices such as meditation, yoga, and acupuncture can help manage pain, reduce stress, and improve quality of life. Detoxification therapies might also be considered, although it’s essential to approach these under the guidance of a healthcare professional experienced in cancer care. Finally, keeping an open line of communication with a healthcare provider who is knowledgeable about both conventional and natural approaches to cancer treatment can ensure the best holistic care plan for mesothelioma patients.
