Home remedy for Leukemia
Orange juice with acerola is a home remedy that can help complement the treatment of leukemia, which is a type of blood cancer. These ingredients are rich in vitamin C, which strengthen the body's defenses, making the body stronger in the face of infections.
Leukemia is a serious disease that must be treated with the drugs indicated by the oncologist, and during this phase it is not recommended to take medicinal teas or to consume antioxidants, which are apparently harmless, because they can decrease the effect of chemotherapy, aggravating the disease.
How to make
- 2 handfuls of acerola
- 1 glass of orange juice
Place the ingredients in a blender and beat until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Drink 2 glasses of juice a day, without sugar.
Another option is to include at least 1 vitamin C-rich food in the diet, such as strawberry, orange, tangerine, pineapple, kiwi or peppers. These fruits increase the body's defenses and can assist in well-being during treatment. However, these homemade options do not replace the medications and treatments indicated by the oncologist.
