Helping cancer patients with homeopathy


Cancers are generally treated with very aggressive medications that also cause a lot of side effects. There is not much that conventional medicines can do to help the patients tolerate their treatments. This is a situation where homeopathic medicines are quite successful at making life easier for those who are not only undergoing a serious illness but also harsh treatments. Here are someĀ  suggestions that are worth considering and discussing with oncologists or primary care physicians:

Homeopathic protocol to reduce nausea induced by chemotherapy

  • Cocculus Indicus 30C
  • Tabacum 30C
  • Petroleum 30C
  • Nux vomica 30C

Five pellets every hour when nausea is intense, then 3 times a day. Those medicines can be taken together.


Homeopathic protocol for radiotherapy

According to the symptoms induced by the radiations, choose from those medicines, and combine them if necessary: 5 pellets after each session

  • Radium bromatum 9C: for burns and low-back pain
  • Belladonna 9C: for burning redness
  • Apis 15C: for burning sensation that is improved by cold applications
  • Fluoricum acidum 9C: for trophic lesions of the skin


And topically, use Calendula cream, ointment or lotion: it contains the extract of the Garden Marigold that has a direct action on skin regeneration.


  • Helps prevent radiation dermatitis. Soothes and restores irradiated skin by promoting the formation of granulation tissue, an important step in the healing of wounds.
  • In addition, the terpenes, flavones, and alkaloids present in the calendula’s essential oil have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects.
