(NaturalHealth365) Science reveals that homeopathic remedies can help women, men and children with a wide variety of health issues – including those concerned about cancer, parasites or infections. Homeopathy was founded by German physician Samuel Hahnemann, in the 1700s, and is based on the premise that ‘like cures like.’ An example of this would be if you are stung by a bee, Apis Mellifica – a remedy made from honeybees – is recommended to relieve any symptoms.
In the natural health world, we often hear claims like homeopathy can help men with intimacy; or homeopathic remedies can be used to kill cancer cells and infections – but, is there any research to backup these claims? Let’s first take a closer look at homeopathy itself.
Homeopathic remedies are derived from plants, minerals or animals and are taken through a process called potentization; which means the substances are diluted and shaken (succussed) to provide the varying potencies available. A potency of 6c is diluted and shaken fewer times than a potency of 30c; potencies of 200c would be diluted and shaken more than potencies of 30c.
Being a homeopath, I have seen numerous people make significant strides in their healing journey with the use of homeopathy. However, homeopathy often is called ‘quackery’ and some believe that homeopathy is really just a placebo – which is simply not true.
If one spends time looking at research, homeopathy has been studied and shown to help with a number of conditions – including cancer. Since homeopathy is very individualized, traditional studies are often not appropriate as one remedy would not be used to treat hundreds of people. In fact, perhaps 10 to 20 different remedies would be used to correlate best with each individual’s mental/emotional symptoms, even if affected by the same virus, bacteria or disease.
Homeopathy has been proven to help with breast cancer
A study published in the International Journal of Oncology revealed homeopathic remedies have a beneficial effect on breast cancer cells. The homeopathics studied and shown to be beneficial were:
Thuja is specifically helpful in cancer cases that involve the breast or the rectum and can be taken prophylatically. Another study conducted at the Amala Cancer Research Center on mice discovered that thuja was helpful in protecting normal cells during radiation. Oncology Reports also found the antitumorigenic activity of the thuja plant (herb) showed that thuja successfully induced apoptosis in functional p53-expressing mammary epithelial carcinoma cells.
Conium – is helpful when hard glands feel like stone – including lymph glands. Lymph glands act like a filter and often times, cancer will metastasize to them.
Phytolacca is a great remedy for breasts in general, particularly for mastitis, breast inflammation, mammary abcess and sore nipples where pain radiates throughout the body.
Carcinosin – the most common carcinosin remedy is made from breast cancer tissue.
Can homeopathic remedies remove parasites?
Homeopaths have been using Cina and China to help with parasites for centuries and a recent study on mice found that combining artesunate based therapy with the homeopathic China at 30c, proved to be highly efficacious as it completely cleared the blood stage infection. The survival rate of the mice was 100% and the combination did not disturb the normal functioning of liver and kidney – a great discovery.
Homeopathic remedies help eliminate upper respiratory infections
Ear Infections are the number one cause of ER visits for children and many physicians are concerned with the over-prescribing of antibiotics. Global Advancements in Health and Medicine found that homeopathy is safe and accelerates early symptom relief in acute illnesses at much lower risk than conventional drug approaches.
The researchers stated that evidence-based advantages for homeopathy include lower antibiotic fill rates during watchful waiting in otitis media, fewer and less serious side effects, absence of drug-drug interactions, and reduced parental sick leave from work.
They further acknowledge that homeopathy appears equivalent to and safer than conventional standard care in comparative effectiveness trials, and advocate for additional well-designed efficacy trials. The authors conclude that existing research evidence on safety supports pragmatic use of homeopathy in order to “first do no harm” in the early symptom management of otherwise uncomplicated ear infections and upper respiratory infections in children.
