The conventional treatments for cancer (radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy) are associated with several side effects. The common side effects of conventional cancer treatment include nausea, vomiting, mouth sores, hot flashes, hair loss, depression, weakness and infections.
A review of studies on homeopathic remedies in treatment of cancer-treatment-related side effects showed that some of the homeopathic remedies can be effective in relieving the side effects of cancer treatment.
- Like an ointment made of calendula (a flower supposed to have skin-healing properties) can be helpful in relieving skin irritation caused after radiation therapy.
- A mouth rinse containing several homeopathic medicines (Traumeel S) was shown to alleviate mouth sores caused by chemotherapy. But many of the homeopathic remedies were not observed to have any benefit.
