There are two types of retinoblastoma; inherited and non-inherited.
Fruits and vegetables are significant sources of carotenoids and folate. Experimental studies show that fruits and vegetables are excellent treatments for inherited retinoblastoma. Above 100 mg of folate ingested from fruits and vegetables provides an efficient treatment for retinoblastoma.
Lutein zeaxanthin is another compound extracted from fruits and vegetables, most notably the marigold flower, which acts as an effective retinoblastoma treatment option.
A school of doctors and researchers hold that retinoblastoma has no alternative treatment or therapies derived from natural sources. However, other schools maintain that natural sources work to provide the body strength in combating the disease and preparing to face conventional retinoblastoma treatments.
Among vitamins, vitamin E, C, and B complex are known as natural retinoblastoma treatment sources. Among trace elements, Zinc, Selenium, Calcium, and Magnesium have shown to be effective natural treatments for retinoblastoma. These can be ingested in the form of pills and medicines.
Some fruits and vegetables that have shown promise in natural retinoblastoma treatment are beets, beans, blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, apricots, tomatoes, asparagus, carrots, cauliflower, cherries, garlic, grapefruit, watermelons, onions, oranges, peas ,potatoes, pumpkins, raisins, sea vegetables, and sweet potatoes.
Some other organic and natural treatments for retinoblastoma include hot chili peppers, mushrooms, decaffeinated coffee, green tea, black tea, nuts, oats, olive oil, and lycopene. Dairy products also act as good natural retinoblastoma treatments. Low fat and fat-free milk along with kelp are also beneficial in treating retinoblastoma.
Recent discoveries show that Coenzyme Q10 – America’s third most popular dietary supplement - acts as an excellent retinoblastoma treatment method.
A particular extract from the bark of a South American tree has recently been shown to have remarkable results against retinoblastoma. The bark extract containing beta-lapachone has been shown to lead abnormal cells like cancerous cells to kill themselves. This retinoblastoma treatment could, in the future, prove revolutionary in not just treating retinoblastoma but also several other forms of cancer.
