Good Food is Good Medicine

Right Thinking in Health Promotion

The information written in this discourse was given for the asking, to a person seeking a little advise on how to approach a problem concerning the lymphatic system. She was told to seek out and to rely heavily upon her treating physicians, in addition to helping herself as much as possible by learning how to apply nutritional resources. As always, an adjuvant is always okay to use, in addition to "gold standard" medical treatments ( with the approval and under the care of physcians and surgeons).

Quality Vitamin and Mineral Sources as an “Adjuvant” to Traditional Nutritional Remedies to Increase Vitality and Action of the Immune System

The cells that make up tissues of the lymphatic system( an organization of lymph nodes, lymph vessels, and lymph nodules, along with lymphoid tissue(including the thymus, spleen, tonsils, and bone marrow) through which “lymph” circulates and is filtered) is a fairly complex system. The word “lymphadenoma” leads one to believe that we are referring to a “benign” tumor associated with the lymphatic glands. However, the lymphatic system is very complex, as I have said, therefore, it is important that a “correct diagnosis” is made by a doctor to be sure the tumor is not cancer.

The above having been said, a complete nutritional approach, including quality mineral sources, vitamins, and complete quality foods, is necessary to keep the immune system healthy. Protein is important, but daily, complete, meals should provide enough proteins. Also, eating fish should provide enough omega-3 fatty acids. Also, fruits, vegetables and grains should help.

Foods like oranges, lemons and strawberries are excellent sources of antioxidants, that will help with this problem. Carrots, cantaloupe and sweet potatoes will help.

Minerals that are involved in immune cell function, that are required to keep one healthy, include zinc, selenium, magnesium, boron and silicon. We know, from experience in practicing medicine, that minerals helps to maintain the structural integrity of the body as well as the actions of the protective white cells and their cytokines such as the interleukins and interferons. In animals (which include humans) a magnesium deficiency can lead to lymphoma. Magnesium is also found in whole grains and dark green leafy vegetables.

We know, from working as physicians and researchers for years, that nutrients are necessary and vital to the action of the immune system but the intricacies of how it interacts with various cancers is not yet well understood. This is why your client’s wife should be sure to get all the help she needs from her doctors, in addition to using good nutrition to help her get over her medical problem.I will be praying for the best for a good outcome as you move forward down the pathway of Life.
