Meningiomas are benign tumors that develop in the thin membranes covering the brain and the spinal column (meninges). These tumors grow slowly and are not malignant. They generally do not invade the normal tissue surrounding them, making it very rare that they extend to other parts of the central nervous system or the body.
Symptoms of Meningiomas
Symptoms depend on the area in which the meningioma develops. They could produce the following symptoms:
- Changes in characteristics of the cranial bone, which are observed by use of X-rays.
- Small meningiomas generally do not present any symptoms.
- Larger meningiomas cause symptoms depending on the area. For example, a meningioma that covers the parasagittal frontoparietal region could cause progressive spastic weakness in the legs, as well as incontinence.
- One could experience an increase in intracranial pressure, but this is less frequent than a glioma.
- One could experience an increase in small signs once the meningioma is detected, like mental disfunction, attacks or persistent headaches, cranial pressure (for example, vomiting, swelling, or a protrusion of the blind spot in the posterior area of the eye).
- If you develop meningiomas, you should pay special attention to any changes in visual and/or auditory acuity.
Causes of Meningiomas
- This could be due to estrogen receptor expressions, which are usually low or undetectable. Approximately two thirds of meningiomas show progesterone receptors (PR) with a fraction raised in men’s cases. We should also mention that it still has not been determined how the expression of these receptors partakes in tumor formation and growth, and its therapeutic role.
- Traumas, like cranial fracture or foreign bodies implanted traumatically, could predispose one for meningiomas.
- Old grudges or repressed feelings of guilt or regret as well as self-criticism and computerized beliefs or attitudes are energetic causes that influence the appearance of meningiomas.
Natural treatment for Meningiomas
One of the most common ways of treating meningiomas is by surgical intervention. Large meningiomas, however, could spread to brain tissue or even the surrounding verins, making surgical extraction difficult. Also, if a meningioma is not completely extracted it could grow back.
If you truly want to heal yourself, it is important that you value the body’s surprising ability to self-heal. Diseases don’t just appear out of nowhere. They are the consequence of life habits, attitudes towards what happens to you, and the way in which you feel about and resolve different experiences that define you. The body can regenerate and cure itself if given the necessary elements and if your life is in line with the laws of nature.
Diet and foods against meningiomas
In order to start a deep cure, you first need to begin an elimination diet whereby you remove possible toxins, harmful substances or damaging fats that could lead to an imbalance in normal bodily functions.
Herbs and tea for treating meningiomas
Here are a few herbs that will help restore your defense system and that will help meningiomas disappear. Prepare a tea by selecting an herb and drink it, freshly brewed. Do this three times a day (you can alternate herbs and choose different ones throughout the day).
- Green tea
- Papain tea
- Lemon tea
- Ginger tea
- Cat’s claw
- Milk Thistle (include frequently)
Fruits and vegetables for dissipating tumors
- Garlic and onion
- Graviola or soursop
Alternatives for healing
Find a specialist in acupuncture, bioenergetic massage or Chi Nei Tsang massage. These alternatives are wonderful for helping the body recover both energetic as well as physical equilibrium.
In addition to diet, using herbs and other natural alternatives are necessary for you to find a way to understand what you have experienced in your life, to free yourself from guilt, resentments, and past suffering. To do this, you could read the book “You can Heal your Life” by Louise L. Hay.
