Cancer

Postby Chaz » Mon Aug 01, 2011 5:04 pm

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with a very low-grade, Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

I am not symptomatic at present.

I have recieved no treatments to address this condition. We are in a watch and wait mode with the disease.

My oncologist has said that it's quite possible that I would die with this cancer rather than from it.

A routine CT scan taken two weeks ago indicates little/no growth of this cancer in the last year. The lymph node being watched is isolated in the mezentary tissues beneath my navel.

My question is how does/would Tibetan medicine approach such a condition? I'm not neccessarily looking for cure here, but would be most interested in regimines aimed at maintenance.

If Namdrol is reading, it's my understanding that you have a collegue in Boulder CO. Is that true?

Hi Chaz:

Yes, Nashalla Nyinda and her husband, Tsondu have a practice in Boulder.

It could be treated with a variety of herbs and therapies, including cleanses, to try address the issue specifically by restoring balance to the lymph system, etc.

You should give them a call:

The very meaning of the Tibetan term Dzogchen, "Great Perfection," refers to the true primordial state of every individual and not to any transcendent reality.
