The Significant Effect of Homeopathic Medicine in Lung Cancer


The Significant Effect of Homeopathic Medicine in Lung Cancer


In a huge breakthrough for complementary medicine, a conventional health journal, The Oncologist, has published a study on how homeopathic medicine has a significant effect on a type of lung cancer.

The study was conducted in 2020 in four outpatient centres across Europe, and evaluated the effects of homeopathic treatment in patients with stage IV advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The patients were randomly assigned to three groups – the control group, the placebo group, and the homeopathy group. 150 patients were involved in the study, and the homeopathy and placebo groups visited the teaching hospital every 9 weeks to have their quality of life assessed. All three groups were observed for survival time after diagnosis.

The results showed that there was a significant improvement in the quality of life of the homeopathy group when compared to the placebo group after 9 and 18 weeks of treatment. In addition, the median survival time was significantly longer in the homeopathy group (435 days) than the placebo group (257 days) and control group (228 days). The homeopathy group also reported that their symptoms were significantly reduced.

The researchers concluded that that homeopathy has a positive effect on quality of life and survival rates in patients with this specific type of cancer, and that further studies with other forms of cancer are warranted.

National and international guidelines recommend replacing the amount of time spent being sedentary with physical activity to improve health. This message is especially important in the face of COVID-19, as overall sedentary behaviors have increased substantially.

In the past 30 years, prediabetes (elevated fasting or post-meal blood sugar below the levels required for diagnosis of type 2 diabetes) has grown into a major epidemic affecting nearly one in three adults. Previous studies have shown that combining aerobic exercise and diet can restore normal glucose levels in these individuals. However, the effects of resistance exercise – an important alternative to aerobic exercise – on post-meal blood sugar concentrations has not been investigated.

A low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) or “ketogenic” diet has grown in popularity due to its ability to increase the rate of fat burning during exercise. For elite athletes this comes at the expense of athletic performance.

Women who have migraine before menopause may have an increased risk of developing high blood pressure after menopause, according to a study published in the April 21, 2021, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
