Homeopathy is one of the most common complementary therapies used by people with cancer.

Although there have been many research studies into homeopathy there is no scientific or medical evidence that it can prevent cancer or work as a cancer treatment.

Homeopathy is based on the theory of treating like with like. To treat an illness, a homeopathic therapist (homeopath) uses tiny doses of a substance that in large doses would actually cause the symptoms of the illness.

Some people choose homeopathy because it is a completely different type of treatment compared to conventional medicine. Homeopathy for people with cancer is promoted as a natural way to help you:

  • Relax
  • Cope with stress, anxiety and depression
  • Control symptoms and side effects such as pain, sickness and tiredness

It is still not clear whether it helps people to feel better because of the homeopathic remedies or because people believe that they will work (the placebo effect). It is likely that the care and attention from the homeopathic practitioner also helps.
