Alternative Treatment of Brain Tumor - the Health Way

By: Juliet Cohen

The brain is the central processing unit of the human body. A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain. Brain Tumors are any tumors which occur in the brain due to uncontrolled cell division. Brain tumors typically are categorized as either primary or secondary. Primary brain tumors originate in your brain and can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Secondary brain tumors result from cancer that began elsewhere and spread to your brain. Primary brain tumors are less common than secondary brain tumors. Benign Brain tumors can be easily removed.

Chances are that these tumors will not resurface once they are removed. However, the same cannot be said about malignant brain tumors. Malignant tumors are by far the most dangerous brain tumors. The growth of tumors in the brain is termed as brain cancer. Malignant tumors are life threatening and more serious than benign tumors. Brain tumors can also be spread from tumors growing in other parts of the human body. The symptoms of brain tumors depend on tumor size, type, and location. Symptoms may be caused when a tumor presses on a nerve or damages a certain area of the brain.

They also may be caused when the brain swells or fluid builds up within the skull. These are the most common symptoms of brain tumors include headaches (usually worse in the morning) , nausea or vomiting , changes in speech, vision, or hearing, problems balancing or walking, changes in mood, personality, or ability to concentrate, problems with memory, muscle jerking or twitching (seizures or convulsions) and numbness or tingling in the arms or legs. Treatment for a brain tumor along with survival odds depends on the type, size and location of the tumor, as well as your age and overall health.

The main treatment methods for brain tumors include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Surgery is the mainstay of brain tumor treatment. It involves removing as much of the tumor as possible while trying to minimize damage to healthy tissue. Brain cancer patients should take Vitalzym anyway, as it may reduce the inflammation of any brain cancer patient and help avoid seizures. Hydrotherapy uses ice, liquid, and steam to improve circulation and relieve pain. Therapeutic touch practitioners say they can relieve pain and other symptoms by moving their hands in slow, rhythmic motions several inches above the patient's body.
