According to Wikipedia, ameloblastoma comes from the English word amel, meaning enamel + the Greek wordblastos, meaning germ is a rare, benign tumor of odontogenic epithelium (ameloblasts, or outside portion, of the teeth during development) much more commonly appearing in the mandible than the maxilla.
While these tumors are rarely malignant or metastatic (that is, they rarely spread to other parts of the body), and progress slowly, the resulting lesions can cause severe abnormalities of the face and jaw. Additionally, because abnormal cell growth easily infiltrates and destroys surrounding bony tissues, wide surgical excision is required to treat this disorder.
Ameloblastoma treatment includes removal of the tumor through surgery as well as removing around 2 mm around the tumor as well as the gums and teeth around it to avoid future growth. Sometimes it is necessary to go into the jaw bone and remove it. Ameloblastoma treatment also may include placing a metal instead of the bone to support strength as well as reconstructive surgery where they would go into the hip to remove a portion of the hip bone and reconstruct the jaw.
I have yet to have found holistic ameloblastoma treatment but I am ON A MISSION! So far, I am working with one of the best doctors in the world who has helped many of my friends who had tumors and removed them in a holistic way.
Additionally, a big part of the ameloblastoma treatment is to work on the emotional side and deal with the emotions attached to the surgery. Personal growth and working on the inner game are just as important. When I heard that this surgery might take me out of the game for a year because of the three major surgeries that are a possibility in my situation, I decided I was not going to let that rule my life. I decided instead of saying the words “take me out of the game”, that I would use this ameloblastoma treatment to help me master my emotions, give me a fun break, and help me look inside my soul to align with my mission
AHHHH….the power of words!
