I’m not sure, but I’ve heard that eating seeds like apricot seeds and stuff will help your body fight off cancer

Detox symptoms of natural cancer treatment? You get sick for a few days while the toxins are broken loose from their hiding places. I think it’s called Herxheimer Syndrome.
You can email me if you want more information–I keep getting slammed here by AMA party liners, and I’m tired of losing 12 points for trying to be a nice guy. Best of luck

Sorry but – fluid in and around the lungs is called pleural effusion. This symptom has nothing to do with detoxification but is simply another manifestation of the cancer’s progressive growth.

A surgical oncologist can remove the fluid and make the person much more comfortable.

If you or a loved one is experiencing this you should not delay seeking medical treatment. It can progress very quickly.

Build up of fluid in the lungs is usually due to heart failure and is called pulmonary edema:

Medline Plus: Pulmonary Edema

This could be a life threatening condition, so you should see your doctor immediately.

There is another condition where fluid builds up between the tissues of the lungs (fluid is on top of the lungs not in the lungs) called pleural effusion.

There are different causes for pleural effusion including heart problems or progression of cancer. Since this too is life threatening you should see a physician immediately.

MedLine Plus: Pleural effusion

I know a 16 year old with cancer who died from pleural effusion. His cancer was in his shoulder and spred to his lungs, there was nothing they could do to stop the fluid once it started (even though they attempted to drain it). Please do not ignore this symptom or assume that it is something that it is not. You need immediate answers.

Cancer can’t be fought naturally.
A buildup of fluids in the lungs is serious. You can’t breathe when your lungs fill with fluid. There are many reason that the lungs would fill with fluid, including pneumonia and congestive heart failure. This is not a symptom of detoxing………..
