​1. What Is Leukemia Cancer?

Blood consists of blood cells, blood plasma, and blood serum. It circulates through the heart, arteries, and veins. The primary function of the blood is to transport elements to and from the body's cells. It carries oxygen, carbon dioxide, nutrients, metabolic wastes, and hormones. 

​The blood has ​​several types of cells:

  • White blood cells include leukocytes, phagocytes, and lymphocytes. They play a vital role during the healing phase. White blood cells remove by-products of the microbial repair work. ​​These cells lack hemoglobin and are thus colorless.
  • ​Red blood cells (erythrocytes) consist of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an oxygen-binding iron-containing pigment. It delivers oxygen into all parts of the body. The iron in hemoglobin gives red blood cells their color.
  • Platelets (thrombocytes) help you clot the blood when you are bleeding.​
  • Plasma and serum are the liquid parts of the blood. Plasma contains blood clotting factors as well.

​​Leukemia ​is cancer of the blood cells. Blood cancer starts in the bone marrow, the soft tissue inside most bones.

The bone marrow ​makes blood cells. Every day, ​it produces billions of new blood cells. ​

​Close up of leukemia cells

​The bone marrow ​can start to create ​white blood cells, called leukemia cells. ​Over time, leukemia cells can crowd out healthy blood cells. This can lead to serious problems such as anemia, bleeding, and infections.

Leukemia cells can ​affect the lymph nodes or other organs and cause swelling or pain. ​Therefore they impede the function and growth of healthy white blood cells.

​Leukemia cells can’t fight infection the way normal white blood cells do. And because there are so many of them, they start to affect the way your major organs function.

There are not enough red blood cells to supply oxygen to the cells. Or sufficient healthy white blood cells to fight infection or enough platelets to clot the blood.

​​Common Types Of Leukemia

There are two main types of white blood cells in your body​, lymphoid cells, and myeloid cells.

Leukemia can happen in either type. Experts group leukemia in two ways. First, they determine how fast it develops and gets worse.

They put them into one of two categories, acute or chronic.

  • Acute leukemia happens when most of the abnormal blood cells stay premature. They can’t carry out normal functions and worsen fast.
  • Chronic leukemia ​is when there are some immature cells together with normal cells. That means it gets bad but slower.

​Another way experts classify leukemia is the type of blood cell involved, usually myeloid or lymphoid cells.

​The major types of leukemia are:

  • Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia: ​Acute lymphocytic leukemia is the most common type of leukemia in children. But also affects adults.
    In this kind of leukemia, immature lymphoid cells grow fast in the blood. It affects over 6,000 people per year in the U.S.
  • ​​Acute Myeloid Leukemia: ​Acute myeloid leukemia involves the rapid growth of myeloid cells. It occurs in both adults and children and affects about 21,000 people each year in the U.S.
  • ​Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: Chronic myeloid leukemia affects adults and occurs in about 8.950 people every year in the U.S.
  • ​Chronic Myeloid Leukemia: ​Chronic myeloid leukemia affects adults and occurs in about 8.950 people every year in the U.S.
  • ​Multiple myeloma: ​They ​originate in the bone marrow. It is a growth of plasma cells (white blood cells).  ​

Leukemias are lymphocyte and myeloid cell cancers while myeloma is a plasma cell cancer.

​Lymphocytes are white blood cells that derive from stem cells in the bone marrow. It is not lymph nodes that produce them. Instead, they migrate from the bone marrow via the lymph fluid to the lymph nodes. They play a vital role in removing the remnants of the microbial repair work.

Various types of leukemia can occur at the same time. They can also change from one variety to another.

​​Signs ​You Might Have Leukemia

Leukemia is the most common childhood cancer but appears more in adults. Blood cancer is a bit more ​prevalent in men than in women. Common signs of leukemia include:

  • ​Excessive sweating
  • ​​Unintentional weight loss
  • ​​Swollen lymph nodes
  • ​​Red spots on the skin
  • ​Bruising easily
  • ​​Fatigue and weakness
  • ​​Bone pain and tenderness
  • ​​Enlargement of spleen or liver
  • ​​Frequent infections
  • ​​Fever or chills

​Let's learn ​about the real causes of leukemia ​and what you can do about it. The first thing I’m going to talk about is stress and emotional problems.

Causes Of Leukemia

1. Stress Increases Your Cancer Risk

The effect of stress on the development of cancer is often overlooked. When the body and mind are in a state of balance and unity, you experience good health.

Most people do not feel a sense of perfect harmony and instead manifest diseases. Many cancer patients had difficult relationships with their parents. ​They often felt rejection, abandonment, betrayal, shame, and injustice.

Some people experienced a combination of those wounds. Tumors manifest after they suppress these feelings and reach their emotional limit.

Stress is behind many diseases

Cancer patients are often caring, dutiful, responsible, and hard-working people. They have a strong tendency to carry other people’s burdens and often worry for others.

Because they often didn’t receive their parents’ love ​they seek it in other people. Many cancer patients harbor long-suppressed toxic emotions, such as anger, resentment or hostility.

Because of this emotional trauma they react adversely to stress and are bad at dealing with it.

How A German Doctor F​ound Out The Emotional Cause ​Of Cancer

Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer is the founder of German New Medicine. He discovered a connection between cancer and unresolved emotional conflicts. ​Hamer was able to interview and do Ct-scans of thousands of cancer patients.

His research led him to discover how emotional trauma affects the brain. He called these psycho-emotional traumas "Hamer Herds.”

Every cancer starts with a painful, acute, traumatic and isolating shock. According to Dr. Hamer, once a perceived conflict or trauma occurs, it impacts the body in a particular way.

The brain cells affected by the shock relay it to the specific organ which it controls. ​Every ​lung cancer patient, for example, had the Hamer Herd in the same spot in the brain. And they experienced the same kind of inner conflict.

Cancer manifests after a biological conflict

The traumatic event that triggers cancer growth is often beyond the patient’s control. Such as the loss of a loved one, business, job, home, or some other disaster.

People with cancer over-react to most difficulties in life and feel stressed out. The hypersensitivity to life's events makes one receptive to cancer.

​The body activates a particular biological program when we experience emotional trauma. Biological programs help the organs resolve conflicts. Animals also suffer from biological conflicts. ​

Our body can't see the difference between a thought and a real situation. Therefore these programs may activate when you think about a problem.

The subconscious mind analyzes the situation and then decides what program to run. Your symptoms reveal how it deciphers the situation. Our past experiences, social conditioning, values, and beliefs, affect the interpretation.

​Hamer also learned that diseases run in two phases. We have the active conflict phase that activates the moment we have the shock. And at the moment we resolve that conflict, we enter the healing stage.

So what did Hamer discover about leukemia? 

The Emotional Connection To Leukemia

​According to ​Hamer, leukemia manifests after a self-devaluation conflict or loss of self-worth. This biological conflict affects the bones, joints, and bone marrow. The cartilage, tendons, and ligaments relate to a light self-devaluation conflict. A self-devaluation conflict may activate when you experience:

  • ​Humiliation such as accusations, scoldings, or degrading remarks
  • ​Physical, sexual, or verbal abuse
  • ​Failure at work, at school, in sports, in a relationship, as a parent or partner
  • A poor intellectual, artistic, or athletic performance
  • ​Feelings of shame and guilt
  • ​Loss of status, unemployment
  • Feeling useless because of retirement, illness, injuries, old age
  • Loss of a person who made one feel appreciated and needed

​The way we perceive or speak to ourselves increase our risk of leukemia. Thoughts such as “I am a failure,” “I will never succeed” is a major cause of this conflict shock. Children and the elderly are more prone to suffer from this internal struggle.

The conflict-active stage results in:

  • ​Anemia (low red blood cell count)
  • ​Leucopenia (low white blood cell count)
  • ​​Thrombocytopenia (low platelet count)

​Blood disorders often happen when you have ​no joy left.

​Leukemia Patients Lack Joy In Life

​According to Louise Hay, leukemia and blood disorders manifest ​when ​you have no ​​joy left in your life.  ​

Louise Hay's metaphysical explanation of leukemia

  • Leukemia: ​Brutally killing of inspiration. What is the use?
  • Blood disorders: Lack of joy. Lack of circulation of ideas.

​Lise Bourbeau ​is another author that ​explored the emotional connection to blood disorders. ​​She says that white blood cell problems signify difficulty in standing up for yourself.

A white blood cell count that is too high indicates an aggressive personality. You are quick to take offense. ​Realize that you don't need to work hard for others to love you. Stop seeking others love and find it within.

If you also suffer from anemia, you need to shape your life the way you want, without depending on others.

​Blood disorders occur when you lack joy in life

​In metaphysics, blood represents the love of life. ​An anemic person has no ​joy left and ​feels discouraged and ​hopeless.

They have lost touch with their needs and desires. You have to become conscious of the negative thoughts that are pushing joy away from you.

After you address the emotional conflict your body goes into the healing phase.

The Healing Phase Of Leukemia

​In the healing phase, the body restores the bone marrow. It also increases blood cell production again. ​The duration of the leukemic stage has to do with the intensity of the conflict-active phase. ​It happens in four stages:

  • ​​​​P​hase 1: ​For the first three weeks, the blood values for all blood cells and platelets are still low.
  • ​​​P​hase 2: ​After three to six weeks the bone marrow starts to produce a large number of leucoblasts. Leucoblasts are white blood cells that support the repair of the bone. ​They are a positive sign​ that you have resolved the self-devaluation conflict. ​​The production of erythrocytes (red blood cells) starts. ​
  • Phase 3: At the end of the leukemic phase, the production of red blood cells also starts to pick up. The body still rejects a  large number of new blood cells. They are still unusable to be oxygen carriers. For a short time, the production of erythroblasts and leucoblasts occurs together.  

  • Phase 4: During the last part of the healing phase, the blood values return to normal. This progress is essential for thrombocytes and their blood clotting ability. Iron is an essential element for blood production. With the rapid creation of erythrocytes, the body requires far more iron than usual.

​Another reason why you may get cancer is because of your diet.

2. Animal Products Cause More Cancer

There are several causes of leukemia. One of them is our diet. The Western diet we eat today is full of unhealthy foods like fast food, meat, dairy, and processed food.

Countries with a higher intake of meat and dairy products have a ​greater incidence of cancer. Humans are plant-eaters, not meat eaters. Our bodies can’t handle animal products.

Several components in meat increase the risk of cancer. These include IGF1, HCAs, and Heme iron.

Insulin-like Growth Factor One(IGF1) is a cancer-promoting growth hormone. IGF1 in the body increases when we consume animal protein. Vegans have much lower circulating IGF1 than meat eaters.

Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are chemicals formed in meat or animal protein during cooking. They develop when you prepare meat at a high temperature or over an open flame.

All these toxic things don’t exist in vegan food. Several studies show that vegans have less cancer than meat eaters. If you want lower your risk of leukemia, then you should eat a whole-food plant based diet.

3. ​Why You Need Enough ​Vitamin D Per Day

Vitamin D is essential to our health. The sun is the greatest source of vitamin D. ​Moderate sunshine is good for you and has many health benefits.

It boosts the immune system, reduces the risk of cancer and creates healthy bones.

​Moderate sunshine can protect you from cancer

Many studies show that vitamin D has a positive effect on cancer. So if you stay inside a lot try ​go out more.

4. Sleep Deprivation ​Can Increase Your Cancer Risk

Getting enough sleep is vital to good health. ​Lack of sleep is the reason why many have little energy. Immunity goes down as fatigue increases. This makes your body worse at defending against bacteria, microbes, and viruses.

​Getting enough sleep is vital to good health

In humans and animals, melatonin secretes during darkness. Melatonin regulates sleep, blood pressure, and other body functions. Low levels of it in the blood increase the risk of cancer.

Light during the night messes with the biological clock in the brain. Making the body believe that it’s day when it's actually dark outside.

Suppressing the natural cycles of the body make it harder for the body to fight cancer.

5. Heavy Metals And ​Radiation Can Lead To Cancer

​We live in a toxic world. Heavy metals can increase your risk of cancer. There are many sources of heavy meals. These include:

  • ​​Smog from cars
  • ​​Eating fish
  • ​Tobacco
  • ​​Industrial waste
  • ​​Toxic workplace air
  • Tooth fillings

Amalgam tooth fillings contain mercury. Mercury is the most toxic natural substance on earth. The heavy metal used in tooth fillings corrodes in time when there is a concentration of air and moisture.

​Radiation, chemotherapy, heavy metals can increase your cancer risk

If you have amalgam fillings, then it is good that you remove them. But you have to do it with caution. Choose a biological dentist that protects you during the removal of amalgam. Never use a dentist that doesn’t know what he is doing.

Radioactive material can damage the bone marrow and lead to leukemia. Examples include nuclear bombings such as Hiroshima, or Nagasaki. Or atomic accidents such as Chernobyl. Medical radiation, and chemo treatments, also destroy the bone marrow. They cause the most damage when the bone is still healing.
