Botanical medicine for gastric cancer.
The structure of the article.
Stomach cancer is one of the most frequent and therefore the most urgent malignant tumors in the world. The prevalence of this disease is quite high throughout the world, which is associated with both genetic factors and the feature and diet. The proportion of gastric cancer among all cancers is 7.33%. Among the malignant diseases of the gastrointestinal tract cancer of the stomach is in the first place and is a third of all such diseases.
Men get sick 2 times more often than women.
What is important is the fact that the incidence of stomach cancer in recent decades is gradually decreasing. Perhaps this confirms the idea of the leading role of life factors in the occurrence of the disease, and first of all, nutritional factors. Studies have shown that the risk of disease in the descendants of emigrants from regions with high morbidity in the second or third generation is indistinguishable from the rest of the population. The negative role of consumption of defective and damaged products. Therefore, the preservation of food without the use of refrigerators (Smoking, salting, pickling, etc.) is one of the main risk factors for stomach cancer. In light of this, the reason for the high incidence of stomach cancer in the regions where these methods of preserving food are most used – China, Korea, Japan, Central and South America-becomes obvious.
Food risk factors also include high content of nitrates, lack of vitamins A and C, low quality of drinking water.
In addition to food, there are also other environmental and lifestyle factors that increase the likelihood of getting stomach cancer. These include occupational hazards (work in the production of rubber, coal, sources of ionizing radiation), Smoking, obesity.
There are precancerous diseases of the stomach. These include chronic atrophic gastritis (cancer in 10% of cases), H. pylori infection, different, and above all, adenomatous polyps, Barrett’s esophagus, menetrier disease (hyperplastic gastritis).
Hereditary predisposition plays a much more modest role in the occurrence of stomach cancer than external factors. Researchers believe that they are relevant only in 8-10% of cases. Among these diseases, the family cancer of the stomach, pernicious anemia (the risk of gastric cancer increases threefold), syndromes diffuse polipozom family of blood (s-m Gardner, of Patna-Jeghers, diffusive family polyposis of the colon). It is believed that people who have a second blood group suffer from stomach cancer more often than others.
From a histological point of view, various types of adenocarcinoma (papillary, tubular, mucinous, low-differentiated, ring-cell) and squamous cell carcinoma are most common in the stomach. In addition, there are also adrenoblokatory cancer, undifferentiated tumors, carcinoid and other rare variants.
Speaking about the symptoms of stomach cancer, it should be noted that they appear quite late, and their presence in most cases indicates a running disease. Symptoms are local, due to local painful manifestations in the stomach, and General, associated with intoxication and exhaustion.
Abdominal pain is usually constant aching character. Usually intensifies after meals, regardless of its nature. Heaviness in the stomach after eating. Rapid saturation usually indicates diffuse-infiltrative nature of the tumor.
With a high location of the stomach tumor on the border with the esophagus, there is an increasing dysphagia, problems with swallowing. With a distal, low location, when the output of the stomach (gatekeeper) is affected due to partial or complete closure (stenosis), an air burp with an unpleasant smell and vomiting of previously eaten undigested food may appear.
Nausea and vomiting in General are characteristic, although nonspecific symptoms of stomach cancer. They occur in 4 patients out of 10.
Among the common symptoms there is weight loss (in half of patients), lack of appetite, aversion to meat products, sometimes subfebrile increase in body temperature.
The main objective of herbal medicine as a rule is to prevent tumor recurrence, as well as the treatment of various disorders associated with surgery. Diseases of the operated stomach in themselves are a serious problem, for which it is necessary to involve phytotherapy. The prognosis of treatment of such patients is generally favorable, although it depends on the stage at which the disease was detected.
Treatment with medicinal plants is based on semi-annual cycles, between which a two-three-month break is made. The total duration of treatment is 5 years. Experience shows that many patients prefer not to give up herbal treatment after a five-year period. In General, this is to a certain extent justified, since, despite a significant reduction in the risk of recurrence (tenfold), in the second five-year plan, such a risk still occurs statistically.
Another group of patients has advanced non-resectable tumors. Often these are patients who are diagnosed with gastric cancer during an endoscopic examination, and when trying radical surgical treatment, it turns out that the tumor has spread to neighboring organs, there is a carcinomatosis of the peritoneum. After that, the surgeon is forced to complete the operation without touching the tumor, or at best making a cytoreductive operation (removal of the tumor in order to reduce its mass to improve the prognosis of palliative chemotherapy). Of the patients initially operated incompletely for health reasons. For example, put a gastric stent or superimposed eyunostoma in cases where the natural way of food closes the overgrown tumor. There are also patients who are not initially subject to surgical treatment. Such patients are accepted to carry out palliative chemotherapy, even given its low efficiency.
The prognosis in this group is initially pessimistic.
It is easy to guess that herbal medicine is often the only, and therefore the main type of treatment of patients in this group. The maximum duration of the course is 2 months. The intervals between them are short, 7-10 days. The total duration of treatment is not limited and is limited, in fact, only the life of the patient and considerations of expediency.
