The spleen is a vital organ in the human body. One of its many roles is eliminating old and damaged red blood cells. Also, the spleen is vital for your immune system because it helps to keep infections at bay.
Spleen enlargement occurs when it gets overworked, in a process that results in what doctors call splenomegaly. This nasty condition leads to liver damage, congestive heart failure, and other types of cancer such as leukemia. Other less severe symptoms might be frequent hiccups, the feeling of fullness after eating a small-sized meal, and experiencing some pain in the abdomen.
Fortunately, there are a few DIY remedies that might solve your problem.
- Grape Juice
This one is pretty simple and straightforward. Pick 2 cups from your shelve, fill them with water and boil about 25 g of grape leaves. Make sure to shut your stove off as soon as the liquid is down to a cup.
- Blackstrap Molasses
Blackstrap Molasses is a well known, ancient remedy to enlarged spleens. Traditional healers advise the afflicted to consume it daily, and the enlarged spleen will be a matter of the past. Its health benefits are well known even in the modern age of medicine because it’s a mineral-rich byproduct of sugar processing.
- Apple Juice
Apple juice is obtained through the pressing and maceration of the apple. It contains a lot of vitamin C, natural phenols of low molecular weight and procyanidins. Scientists suggest that apple juice improves memory. It is also perfect for the lymphatic system, as it cleans it, being an efficient weapon against splenomegaly. 1 or 2 cups of apple juice are enough to ensure that your enlarged spleen will be back to its normal size in no time.
- Raw Papaya Sap
This one might be the trickiest of all home remedies because it can constitute quite of a challenge to do. Just slice a raw papaya and take 8 to 10 drops of the sap on an empty stomach in the morning.
- Ginger and Beetroot Juice
Beets are some of the healthiest foods you can consume. Initially, beets were appreciated solely for their leaves, which are loaded with nutritional and therapeutic value. So, 1 small cup of beet juice combined with ginger root juice (one tablespoon) can do wonders to your enlarged spleen.
- ACV with Raw Papaya
As stated above, raw papaya is a good alternative food source. Peel a small raw papaya and soak it in apple cider vinegar, and leave it there over the night. Slice the raw papaya in the morning and pour 6 grams of sea salt on it.
Splenomegaly can be a nasty, life-long condition that clearly affects your lifestyle, well-being and can lead to more dangerous, fatal diseases like cancer, leukemia, and hepatitis. Hopefully, this article will help you combat some of the symptoms and cure it.
