- Each cancer patient is an individual cancer patient.
- Constitutional remedies goes a long way in treating cancer patient same as with the other diseases, because THE WHOLE MAN IS DISEASED RATHER THAN A PARTICULAR PART.They gives a better response to arrest disease process than medicine selected on the present acute –suffering and pathology.
- Sometimes more than one remedy are given according to the case according to the signs and symptoms.
- The cancer patient usually come to us only in terminal stage and there is advanced metastasis or after being operated, chemotherapy and radiotherapy given ,to prevent the recurrence. In the first case little can be done because of advanced pathology except giving relief to the present acute conditions like relief in pain or improving the general condition. In the second case the patient is asymptomatic , no obvious symptoms to select the remedy. In these cases it is very difficult to select a remedy either because of paucity of symptoms or too advanced pathology.
- Anti miasmatic remedies has to be given along with constitutional medicines.
- Patients having Family History of Asthma, Diabetes –Anti sycotic remedy acts very well along with constitutional remedy.
- Carcinoin plays an important role in treatment even if patient doesn’t give the family history of cancer.
In Post –operative, Post-radiotherapy, Post chemotherapy cases:
- It helps in combating after effects of Chemotherapy like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite.
- Preventing recurrence of the cancer.
Cases having advanced pathology, end stage cases, homoeopathy helps in
- Relieving the pain
- Improving the quality of life.
Usually when a case of warts come to a Homeopath ,one is forced to think in the lines of Thuja, Dulcamara, Antimonium crudum, Causticum . But in this case all these remedies failed
It is a case of viral warts started on right palm of a girl of 7 years of age . The warts were whitish, hard.Gradually the warts spread to left hand also .No other body part was involved. She presented with no other symptom. As girl was brought to me with his brother the history was very vague. I started with antisycotic followed by all Causticum, Lycopodium, dulcamara, ant. crud but no result was achieved . She kept coming to me for a year and as she belonged to poor community I started treating her free. But I was getting frustrated as no reult could be seen. One day she came and I gave her Lac-Can 30 and told her not to come again and see some other Homepath if this doesnt get treated. and next month she didnt came . A year passed and I thought I have lost that case. After few days his brother brought another case of wart , I asked him what about Fatima , how are her warts and he told me those warts VANISHED AFTER THE LAST DOSE U GAVE. I was astonished . I told them u atleast could have come and told me.
Lac-Can — symptoms move from one side to another
Everybody who is a Homeopath knows Beauty of homeopathy lies in its individualization. It treats the person as a whole. There is no specification in homeopathy. If the symptoms matches any remedy can cure any disease.
This is case of a lady who came to me when I was working with Dr Jugal Kishore. As he was very busy and she was in hurry she consulted me. She had psoriasis. Scaly patches all over body and in head also. I took her whole history. She had common modalities i.e. her patches were worse in winters and seems to be better in summers. In Personal History I couldn’t find anything on which I can put my fingers on .While stating her problems she started weeping. I asked what happened. She told me—Doc saab yeh theek to ho jaenge na. I told her yes of course but it will take time. She told me how much mentally she is tortured because of these eruptions Her mother-in-law has kept separate utensils for her so that they all may not get infected because of this and her husband sleep away from her on separate bed. I could see Mortification in her eyes but not able to retaliate, although she had suppressed anger but she was in such a position that she cant show her anger , so I decided to give her Staphisagria 1m single dose followed by sac-Lac and asked her to come back after a month. She asked me anything to be applied on . I told her to apply coconut oil only . After a month she came back and was very happy as her eruptions were clearing . I gave her sac lac again . Almost after a year her eruption on whole body were better but were limited to scalp only. Still on and off she gets eruptions on scalp only and her whole family is my patients .
If you go by Eruptions Psoriasis in Kent repertory you will never come to this remedy because this remedy is not mentioned at all. This shows how important is case taking and mental symptoms are.
