Is Homeopathy an Effective Cancer Treatment? Cancer patients are faced with a life-and-death decision when choosing their treatment. Since most conventional treatments continue to be associated with severe adverse and some- times fatal effects, while homeopathy has been found to be free from such effects, it would seem plausible and worthwhile, even urgent, to step up the research on, and even the provision of, homeopathic treatment of cancer and other diseases.
Homeopathic cancer treatment has great promise, given the exceptional safety of the treatment and the relatively frequent observation of beneficial clinical effects.
We also commented on the fact that virtually all studies of homeopathic cancer treatment are in reality investigating the effects of high potency drugs, not the efficacy of homeopathic treatment.
This should be kept in mind when reading the present review. Since most conventional treatments continue to be associated with severe adverse and sometimes fatal effects, while homeopathy has been found to be free from such effects, it would seem plausible and worthwhile, even urgent, to step up the research on, and even the provision of, homeopathic treatment of cancer and other diseases.
However it has a perfectly reasonable explanation that does not warrant homeopathy-bashing.
Ernst began his article with defamatory remarks on homeopathy and homeopathic practitioners. We discussed in detail the distinction between potentization and ordinary dilution in our review. He also failed to report on mounting scientific data showing the positive effects these potencies have in biological systems, including in humans.
Aside from the biased views espoused by the hired guns against CAM5 there are substantial reasons why human trials in homeopathic cancer research are rare.
In the United States, more than 30 states have enacted laws that severely restrict the use of unproven therapies in cancer. This is surprising considering the significant potential harm and relative low efficacy of these treatments. Best Case Series Program Homeopathic treatment of cancer is so effective that this fact can no longer be hidden from the public.
More and more patients around the world are choosing homeopathic treatment, either complementary, or as an alternative, to conventional therapy. Studies have shown that when homeopathic cancer treatment is unavailable, patients obtain homeopathic remedies and attempt to treat themselves, or their families, even without proper training.
One of these clinics2 has been conducting case studies that led to the publication of their treatment results. The Banerji protocol deviates from the strictly homeopathic method in giving preference to homeopathic drugs that have shown efficacy in significant numbers of clinical cases and in state of the art evidence-based research for a given condition diagnosed by current medical technology28 rather than on strict individualization of symptom similarity as is the case in classical homeopathic prescribing.
However, this approach could be justified in the case of cancer because of the relative lack of symptoms and the severity of the disorder, according to standard homeopathic theory. A previous study Pathak et al. Sincethe NCI has had a process for evaluating data from complementary and alternative medicine CAM practitioners that involves the same rigorous methods used in evaluating treatment responses with conventional medicine.
This process, called the National Cancer Institute NCI Best Case Series BCS Program, provides an independent review of medical records, medical imaging and pathology materials from patients treated with unconventional cancer therapies.
The primary goal of this program is to obtain and review sufficient information to determine if NCI-initiated research on a specific intervention is warranted. According to the article by Banerji et al.
Four of the cases submitted had independent confirmation of the diagnosis and radiographic response and were accepted as sufficient information for the NCI to initiate further investigation. Research on Homeopathic Potencies One recent unusual method to demonstrate effects of potentized drugs was demonstrated in a study.
Using one of the homeopathic drugs produced by the pharmaceutical company Heel as an example, he measured brain waves with the help of an electroencephalogram EEG to characterize the impact of the homeopathic drug.BibMe Free Bibliography & Citation Maker - MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard.

In developed countries, people on average sit 3 to 8 hours a day. Prolonged sitting can cause injury, heart disease, and fatigue. Experts recommend standing 5 to 20 minutes each hour.
