Can homeopathy help for after effects of chemotherapy?

Posted by: casmira

I was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer of the anus. I had no symptoms of any kind. I will be treated with radiation and chemo and would like to know what wold help with the side effects, skin burns and nausea, that result from the treatment. I am always warm, prone to anxiety, but otherwise am in good health


There are several remedies that Homeopaths may choose to use for treating side effects of chemotherapy. Cadmium Sulph, Arsenic Album, Radium brom, Cantharis are some commonly indicated ones. However, the homeopath needs to choose the suitable remedy based on the symptoms of the individual patient as not all patients will display the same symptoms. It is advisable to consult a homeopath, not just for dealing with after-effects of chemotherapy but also to treat you constitutionally for giving you optimal chances against the cancer.
Good luck!
