Cancer can be prevented and cured by following a regimen as prescribed in Naturopathy, Yoga, Homeopathy or Ayurveda. Unfortunately, cancer patients come to us in the final stage after having undergone surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy to deleterious effect. And then expect a miracle to happen.


"We must not let the fear of cancer infect our society with a cancer of fear" says Dr. Kasad and outlines a gentle treatment and tender loving care in tackling this dreaded, but not insurmountable disease. Dr. Leo Rebello, Editor.


Cancer is the end-result, the end-product of the disease that has begun far back in years at the dynamic and the functional levels. "Cancer is multi-miasmatic in its expression" (Roberts).


Exophytic, cauliflower-like growth is syco-syphilitic. Ulcerative, fungating growth is syphilitic. Bleeding cancer is tubercular miasm. At the causal level, the fundamental miasm is syphilitic on account of genetic and hereditary predisposition.


In addition, the 'Drug Miasm' (Kent) is often super-imposed on the multimiasmatic base, such as, the immuno-suppressive drugs, which hamper natural evolution of disease picture. In advanced terminal cancers with irreversible pathology and tinkered with surgery, irradiation and/or chemotherapy, cure is impossible. In such cases, homeopathy offers effective palliation.


The combined study of homeopathic materia medicae and the repertories reveals that homeopathy has much to offer in cancer cure. The books of reference are : Boericke's Materia Medica, Clarke's Dictionary and Cancer Nosodes, Anschutz's New Old and Forgotten Remedies, Burnett's Tumours, etc.
