B-cell lymphoma and the gut

B-cell lymphoma and the gut

There are a great many research studies showing links between pathogens and B-cell lymphoma - Hodgkin and NHL; it is even possible that the cancer is caused by the body’s own defences reacting to an infection.

Approximately 85% of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is B-cell; while Hodgkin’s lymphoma nearly always starts in the B-cells.

It has long been known that B-cell lymphoma and GI tract issues can be linked. For example, 90% of mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas arise in the stomach and are linked to Helicobacter pylori infection (1). 101 cases of infection were found in 110 cases of MALT lymphoma.

In humans, Campylobacter jejuni, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Chlamydia psitacci seem also to play a role in lymphoma development (2). Bacteriodes fragilis is known to affect the immune system causing necrosis or oxidative bursts (3). The oxidative stress can then lead to DNA and immune system damage.

Ironically, B-cell lymphoma may be produced when the immune system tries to deal with the attacking bacterium. Invading bacteria can act as antigens and over-present to the B-cells, causing chronic proliferation of the B-cells. In other words, Lymphoma may develop because your natural defences are dealing with an attack. Helicobacter pylori is thought to cause lymphoma in this way (4).

What is really interesting is that the mutagenic (cancer-causing) activity of bacteria in the gut has been shown to be neutralised by Lactic Acid Bacteria (5). It is easy to increase those in your gut.

Also Helicobacter pylori can be eliminated by Goldenseal and Bismuth (e.g. Gastrobismol); Camphobacter and Borrellia by artemisinin; and Chlamydia by garlic, sage and turmeric.

Chris Woollams, former Oxford University Biochemist said, “Clearly you can take action against the primary infectionThe only question is whether it is too late or not. We always look to cut toxic load in Lymphoma patients and regularly use natural compounds to attack and remove pathogens from the equation. I think patients like Sir Geoffrey Boycott who had a parasite behind his tongue cancer would agree that it's never too late to take some action to defend yourself!
