FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

GENERAL QUESTIONS

I am following an allopathic cure (conventional medicine) can I be treated with homeopathy after the cure?

Cancer patients can benefit from the homeopathic treatment before, during and after conventional therapies such as chemo- and immunotherapies or radiations. The homeopathic treatment can reduce significantly the side effects of conventional therapies, improving its results.

I was diagnosed with cancer how can homeopathy help me?

Patients suffering from other chronic diseases can benefit from the homeopathic treatment in terms of general strengthening of the immune system and in the reduction of the side effects caused by synthetic drugs. The homeopathic treatment is complementary to conventional treatments.

Is there scientific evidence that certifies the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment of cancer?

In 2011, the Freiburg University (Germany) conducted a statistical research at the Dr. Spinedi Clinic. The prospective study involving over 600 tumoral patients (260 treated with homeopathy and 380 with conventional medicine only), demonstrated that the patients treated with homeopathy had a significantly better quality of life, regardless from the stage of the tumor[1].


Another study from 2016 demonstrated that advanced carcinoma patients following a homeopathic treatment parallel to a conventional therapy showed a life-expectancy extension (p <0.001)[2].
