Lung Cancer Treatment in Ayurveda

Lung Cancer Treatment in Ayurveda

Believed to be a fatal and incurable disease, cancer is caused due to uncontrollable growth of tissues that affect the surrounding tissues and organs. If toxins keep accumulating in the body over a period of time, they result into fatal growth in the surrounding cells. The collection of cells produces swelling at the site. These toxins, if not removed from the body in due course of time are circulated to other parts of the body through the blood stream spreading the disease to other organs.


Unlike the normal cells that grow, divide and die out, the cancerous cells follow this life cycle and keep reproducing themselves. Common causes for cancer include:

  • Smoking, cigar smoking and tobacco.
  • Consuming alcohol
  • Obesity
  • Genetic bias.
  • Damages in the DNA affecting the genes involved in cell division.
  • Carcinogens inhalation such as tobacco, asbestos and car exhaust fumes.
  • Lack of physical activity and wrong lifestyle
  • Excessive exposure to ultraviolet light and radiations like X-rays, gamma rays, cellular phones and towers.
