Homeopathic medicine addresses symptoms rather than conditions. So, instead of looking for a list of medicines to help breast cancer, a homeopathic approach would call for you to take medicines to heal your specific symptoms. Homeopathy is an alternative to radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery.
1. Write down a list of your symptoms. Consider those that affect your mind, head, emotions, chest, hearing, abdomen, back and sense of general well-being, such as tiredness.
2. Enter your symptoms into a database such as ABC Homeopathy (find a link in Resources) to see which medicines to take. Phosphorus, for instance, helps if you’re tired and lethargic.
3. Consider using homeopathy alone if you’re in a precancerous state or if the cancer was detected early, but consult with your health care provider first to make sure you understand all of your options and their risks.
4. Have surgery if there is a small, operable breast cancer lump or affected lymph nodes. Follow the operation with homeopathy.
5. Consider trying homeopathy if your lesion isn’t operable or if the cancer has spread to surrounding organs and secondary glands. If it doesn’t work, use radiation or chemotherapy.
6. Seek palliative care and comfort from homeopathic medicines during Stage IV cancer.
