Can Homeopathy Help Prevent Breast Cancer?

homeopathyHomeopathic medications have a wide range of use in treatment and prevention of breast disease as well as in the promotion of proper lymphatic drainage. Here are just a few examples of the most common remedies from my clinical experience:

Phytolacca Decandra (poke-root)—Great glandular remedy. Will work specifically for swellings with heat and inflammation. It has a powerful effect on fibrous tissues and muscle sheaths as well as scar tissue. It is the most used homeopathic medicine for mastitis, with the primary indication being that the breast is hard and very sensitive. The breast can be hard, painful, and have a purple hue in later stages. Any mammary abscess will require Phytolacca at some point of treatment. Phytolacca is also used when breasts are irritable, before and during menses. This remedy is very common for women to complain that they have pain is radiating into the axillary region, caused by an enlargement of the axillary glands.

Scrophularia Nodosa (knotted figwort)—Has a specific affinity for the breast and it is very useful in the dissipation of breast tumors. Very powerful medicine whenever enlarged glands are present. This remedy is used with fibroadenoma of the breast (nodules) with pain in all flexor muscles. Many patients with Hodgkin's disease will require this remedy.

Baryta Iodata (iodide of Baryta)—Acts on the lymphatic system. Patients who require this medicine have leucocytosis. Leucocytosis is an increase in the number of white blood cells in the blood. It is a common feature of inflammatory reactions, particularly those caused by bacteria. Lymph nodes that have chronic or acute infection will respond greatly to this medicine.

Conium Maculatum (poison hemlock)—The ancient Greek philosopher Plato made this medicine well known by his graphic description of its employment in the death of Socrates. However, there are many other applications for this homeopathic remedy that seem invaluable when it comes to breast conditions. This medicine is very effective for breasts that present with a stony, hard tumor or gland. It has also proven its therapeutic value in cancers of the esophagus, stomach, liver, and prostate.
