CANCER & HOMEOPATHY
Updated: May 8, 2020
Homeopathy has a dual role to play in Cancer cases.
Firstly, it can deal with the cancer itself, by increasing the body’s immune power which then attacks the cancer. This is very gently done by appropriate Homeopathic remedy applied in an individual case of cancer. Now the medical diagnosis could be the same in 5 patients suffering from cancer, but with the principles of homeopathy applied appropriately, the prescription would be different for all the 5 cases with the same medical diagnosis as the circumstances and environment in which they developed vary in each case, the individual’s response to cancer itself varies in each case and the history of each case would be different from one another. In homeopathy, one-size-fits-all approach cannot be applied. Every prescription has to be individualized to you, and only you.
Secondly, homeopathy has a definitive place in helping to deal with the side-effects of chemotherapy and improving the quality of life of the patient. During chemotherapy, the immune system and particularly, the white-blood cells are weakened. In France, 400,000 people are currently receiving complementary homeopathic treatment for their cancer. The use of homeopathy in oncology has doubled in the last 4 yrs. Homeopathic medicines in high dilutions, prescribed by trained professionals, are safe and do not cause any serious adverse reactions.
Trust your homeopath and speak to him or her in great detail about all of your worries/ stresses in life. The transference relationship which is established during a consultation is very helpful in the overall care of the patient.
There are no stupid questions. Feel free to clear all of your doubts at the consultation.
Repeated consultations are very important in homeopathy as we need to understand you in totality which can take some time and meetings.
I will also incorporate some lifestyle changes along-with treatment and medication.
Use the support of your family and friends.
You are not responsible for your cancer, however, you can take an active part in your healing process.
Always keep a positive attitude and strengthen your hope.
The long-term survivors are those who have a strong will and a positive personality, a desire to participate in treatment choices and often the ones who use complementary medicine.
Last but not the least, Homeopathy is the only therapy that can prevent a relapse of cancer.
