Cancer and Homeopathy
Homeopathic remedies can be used a number of ways in conjunction with many different cancer therapies. There are many ways our scottsdale doctor will assist. One way is to target the tumors themselves, in this case, the symptom picture of the tumor itself. The primary focus of our naturopathic physician is to target the tumor and reverse its growth.
Another approach is to use homeopathic remedies to assist in healing the patient’s eliminative channels (kidneys, urinary tract, lymphatic system, liver, etc), and strengthen cell detoxification. In this case, the homeopath may use drainage remedies. These are low potency combination remedies that are used to target specific systems, or detoxify particular substances (e.g. heavy metals, etc).
Still another approach is to use homeopathy to address the overall well being of the patient. In this case (called the classical approach), the homeopath does a complete interview of the patient’s mental, emotional, and physical symptoms and then selects the best match accordingly. Often the best-selected constitutional remedy will directly affect the tumor.
What exactly is Homeopathic Medicine? Homeopathy is a sub-system of natural health care in which extreme dilutions of substances from nature are used to stimulate a healing response. In short, homeopathy is based on the “law of similars”, in which “like cures like”. Most remedies are derived from plants, and minerals, animal substances.
So how does homeopathy medicine work? Homeopathic remedies cause an action-reaction response within the immune system. The remedy pushes the disease process in one direction and the immune system rebounds back in the opposite direction, stimulating the healing process.
