“Can cancer be cured?” is a common question that pops up in everyone’s mind. From the homeopathic point of view, I want the readers to know a few crucial points about cancer.

Important Things to Know About Cancer!


Cancer is not new nowadays, but it is a cause of major disturbance in most localities. Day by day, people are becoming more and more conversant with the proceedings, the cost factor, the suffering, the liabilities, and the pain accompanied by cancer. But recently, I was taken aback when I started following some online questions of the patients. I saw how much fear cancer has formed in people, and they remain baffled and misguided. It includes most of the population, and I am not excluding well-educated ones who believe in the misconception of their acquaintances.

Yes, cancer is a major disease, which not only brings suffering to the patient but the whole family in terms of physical, emotional, and financial burdens. I have seen patients overflowing in the cancer hospitals and not even finding a bed. Medicines that are used seem to be rare and hardly accessible everywhere, and they have to be procured with much difficulty, and that adds to the suffering. This does not end here, as it is just the beginning.

It is the need of time for common people to have the basic knowledge about cancer. In this article, I have tried to give you a basic understanding of it.

What Is Cancer?

To simplify it, I would say it is an uncontrolled growth of some group of cells in our body. It can be anywhere, and it harms the other cells and does not allow them to function normally, and ultimately causes the death of normal cells and loss of functions of the organ. They are of two types:

  1. Benign - Benign means the tumor cells are limited to one location and do not spread.

  2. Malignant - Malignant means which starts spreading to other organs and starts damaging them.

What Causes Cancer?

There is a lot of research going on, but there are no specific causes found. There are some predisposing factors or causative elements like:

  1. Genetics.

  2. Some pollutants.

  3. Artificial products used in food.

  4. Fertilizers and insecticides used on vegetables and fruits.

  5. Some types of chemicals that one can be under constant exposure like smoking and alcohol.

  6. Exposure to radiation.

  7. Viral infections which promote cancer growth.

How Can a Person Know That They Have Cancer?

There are no specific symptoms that are exclusive to cancer. Some common symptoms seen are sudden weight loss, loss of appetite, some kind of overgrowth, changes in the color of the skin, etc. The ultimate diagnosing authority is a proper laboratory and radiological investigations for which you need to consult a specialist.

Why Homeopathy for Cancer?

Homeopathic medicines are organic substances that have been highly diluted, and there are only a few molecules of the original substance left. So it is known to provide relief from the symptoms without any harmful side effects. Most people choose homeopathy to avoid the side effects caused by conventional cancer treatment.

Moreover, only gentle doses are suggested; hence there is no risk of developing resistance or other complications as in conventional cancer treatments. In the case of cancer treatment, the homeopath not only helps treat the condition but also aids in stimulating immunity, lessening pain, improving energy, and overall improving the quality of life.

Homeopathy is typically not toxic and can be a better choice for people with other medical conditions or for those people who cannot tolerate other types of medicines.

How to Treat Cancer and What Are the Outcomes?

Nowadays, there are various treatments offered like Allopathy, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, etc. Here, every doctor has their subjective opinions, and I would give some insight into it.

Being a homeopath, I always prefer homeopathic treatment over other treatment modalities, even for my family members. But when It comes to diseases like cancer, I never advise going for homeopathic treatment exclusively. It should always be used in conjunction with the conventional treatment (allopathy). When other systems of medicines fail, there are many reported cases of cancer cured by homeopathy. But, there is a limit to all treatments, and it also depends on the efficacy of the doctors. So my suggestion is to take homeopathic treatment with other treatments and not leave other treatments with unrealistic expectations.

What Are the Commonly Used Homeopathic Medicines in the Treatment of Cancer?

Different medicines are used for different cancers depending on the location of cancer. The commonly recommended homeopathic medicines in the treatment of cancer include:

What Are the Common Lifestyle And Dietary Changes Required for Cancer Patients According to Homeopathy?

Our day-to-day routine has a great impact on the effectiveness and result of homeopathic medicines. You can add these instructions to your daily routine:

1) Take a diet rich in nutrients.

2) Include exercises in your daily routine.

3) Avoid taking in excessive salt or sugar in your diet.

4) Try to avoid taking stress by performing stress management techniques like yoga, meditation, and deep breathing exercises.

5) Avoid staying in an unhygienic and damp environment.

What Are the Risks Associated With Homeopathic Medicines in the Treatment of Cancer?


I have seen many patients or their relatives asking for treatment without even consulting a doctor. In that case, it is very important to understand that diseases like cancer do not get cured by a single prescription, but it requires a series of medicines and regular follow-ups to evaluate the progress of the cure or palliation or disease.
