Homoeopathy : The best supplementary treatment for cancer

Posted by Pradeep Maurya on

    Homoeopathy is amongst the most common supplementary therapies used by people with cancer.

    How does cancer affect a person’s life?

    A cancer diagnosis is something that has a huge impact on the patient, their family, friends and caregivers. Depression and a loss of confidence are two of the most common emotional distress that the patients suffer.
    The person can be in a stage where they question their existence it never occurred to them that something like this can happen to them. It leads to lowered self-esteem and a fear of death, pain, suffering and all the unknown things that lay ahead for them.
    Even the person’s family could feel similar feelings since it makes them angry that they aren’t able to help the patient enough. They might also feel frustrated because they’ll have to work extra and also take care of the person.

    Why do people with cancer use homoeopathy?

    We’ve heard the arguments and we are well aware that homoeopathic medicines do not cure cancer. However, homoeopathic can help cancer patients deal with the side-effects and consequences of living with cancer.
    Cancer is a life-changing disease and it can affect the way a person looks at themselves and at the world. Being a supplementary therapy, homoeopathy helps the person feel better or more in control of their situation.
    You should keep it in mind that homoeopathy can be used alongside the conventional treatment.

    How does homoeopathy help cancer patients?

    The issue with conventional cancer treatments is that they cause several side effects. Conventional treatments include radiation therapy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. These treatments often result in complaints such as infections, nausea, sores, hair loss, hot flashes, weakness and depression.
    Homoeopathic medicines help in controlling these symptoms and side effects to a certain extent. These medicines are safe and effective.
    They offer a natural way to help you relax and cope with depression and anxiety that comes along with cancer. They also help the patients relax and cope with stress by reducing pain, improving vitality and sense of well-being.

    How can homoeopathy help a cancer patient mentally and emotionally?

    Homoeopathy begins with a long consultation that is delegated to knowing everything about the individual. In conventional treatments, most patients are treated like just… patients.
    But homoeopathy believes in treating everyone with love and care that they deserve. When cancer patients are sick of being treated like just another patients, are frustrated with all the side-effects and the diseases itself, they can’t help but feel bad about themselves and the situation they are in.
    So when they are given so much attention and care, they feel better about themselves. It gives them hope and makes them feel that not all is lost yet.
    Homoeopathy also believes in boosting the immunity of a person and in treating the person as a whole, instead of focusing on the symptoms. This helps the person relax a little and become better equipped at handling the stress and depression generated from the disease.
    As the person feels better, it also helps in increasing the self-esteem of the individual.

    Can homoeopathy replace conventional cancer treatment?

    Absolutely not. And certified homoeopaths would never recommend it. You need to understand that cancer is a lethal disease and it needs extreme measures and treatment to cure it.
    Radiation therapy and chemotherapy have been designed especially to help people fight with cancer. Homoeopathy can work to fight the side-effects of these therapies, emotional impact of the disease and other issues. But there is no proved study which shows the effectiveness of homoeopathy in treating cancer.
