Hope For Cancer Using Homeopathy
by Dr. Nancy Gahles, D.C., C.C.H.

The very word “cancer” strikes fear in the hearts of most men and women. It is like a death knell.

Annual statistics from the American Cancer Society show the rates are increasing among both men and women for melanoma of the skin and cancers of the liver and thyroid.

A truly hopeful study was recently published in the Journal of Acupuncture and Meridian Studies. This research shows that the homeopathic remedy Lycopodium Clavatum, has an anti-cancer effect on infected cells while protecting normal cells.

Boiron Laboratory in France and the University of Kalyani in India released a report revealing the homeopathically prepared Lycopodium Clavatum is capable of inducing apoptosis (cellular death) in cervical cancer cells, signifying their possible use as a supportive medicine in cancer therapy.

Dr. Alexander Tournier, Exec. Dir. of the prestigious Homeopathy Research Institute, London, England, confirmed the validity of this study and said, “These results found on [cervical] cells are potentially generalisable to other cancer cell lines, although the tests would have to be done...the fact that homeopathic medicines were shown to be effective at selectively killing cancer cells warrants further research and offers the possibility that homeopathy could be used for a wide variety of cancer patients in the future.”

Two previous studies show other homeopathic remedies that target the cancer cell and leave normal cells alone. Frenkel,M. et al. (2010) used homeopathic remedies Phytolacca, Carcinosin, Conium and Thuja on breast cancer cells and witnessed a deactivation of the cancer in a process called cytotoxicity. In another equally exciting study, Toliopoulos IK, Simos Y, Bougiouklis D and Oikonomidis S (2013) discovered that certain homeopathic remedies were able to stimulate the anti-cancer activity of the natural killer cells of our immune system.

Integrative health care practitioners have been using homeopathic remedies in conjunction with conventional chemotherapy and radiation for many years. The sad fact is that not enough doctors are telling their patients about the options that exist.

Either through ignorance or an attempt to keep control of their market share of the enormously profitable medical industrial cancer complex, in my opinion, it is reprehensible and unethical for a physician not to be informed about “other” therapeutic disciplines that offer and succeed in positive outcomes.

Remember the Hippocratic oath, “Primum non nocere”. First, do no harm.

Let the death knell be tolled for the end of a monopolistic era in health care.

Let there be hope and the promise of a truly integrated healthcare system with the patient at the center informed of all possibilities...and realities.
