Dr. Burnett maintained that in majority of cases of tumour, the finer symptoms available for basing a homoeopathic prescription upon were often lacking. There were two sources from which he obtained his tumour-curing remedies, and of these one was the class of remedies known as organ-remedies.
THE two cases I will now narrate were both of non-malignant tumours in patients of cancerous heredity. Both were cured by the aid of cancer nosodes.
With homoeopathy doctors it is imperative that medicinal treatment should be utilised from first to last in cases of cancer. The treatment should begin as soon as there is diagnosis and should continue even if there is surgery.
I will now relate two cases of cancer of the breast, in both of which the breast had been removed before I saw the patient. In both of then there was recurrence of the disease and were then treated with homeopathy.
The cure of the tumour-state and the removal of the tumour-state and the removal of the breast tumour is, as a rule, much more easily brought about when no operation has been performed..
Numerous poisons have been known to set up cancer, especially arsenic and its compounds.; It is for this reason that arsenical preparations have been used successfully, especially by homoeopathists in the cure of cancer.
Dr Burnett obtained his nosodes from different source, and gave them different names. Those which I know most about are the following:- 1. Scirrhinum. 2. Carcinosin. 3. Durum. 4. Karkinosin.
Diet in cancer: So long as the disease is kept well in check by remedies, no strict rules need be laid down; but when it is advancing, everything which restricts normal tissue change should be carefully avoided
