The homeopathic remedy Conium Maculatum has been used extensively for malignant affections of glands. The symptoms are a gradually growing hardness of the glands, which is commonly seen in tumor formation in the breasts and other parts of the body.
Conium has long been used by homeopathic professionals in the treatment of breast cancer, especially in Indian hospitals. A recent study reveals the effect homeopathic remedies can have on cell growth. International Journal of Oncology reports:
We conducted an in vitro study to determine if products prescribed by a clinic in India have any effect of breat cancer cell lines. We studied four ultradiluted remedies (Carcinosin, Phytolacca, Conium and Thuja) against two human breast adenocarcinoma cell lines.. and a cell line derived from imoortalized normal human mammary epithelial cells.. The remedies exerted preferential cytotoxic effects against the tow breast cancer cell lines, causing cell cycle delay/arrest and apoptosis.. The findings demonstrate biological activity of these natural products when presented at ultra-diluted doses.
Conium is made of Poison Hemlock and is one of our main remedies to combat malignancy and pre malignant conditions. The complaints in this remedy develop slowly and progressively and its main symptoms are ascending paralysis, weakness of body and mind, trembling and palpitation. It is commonly given to older patients when they start withdraw from life and they start having difficulties moving physically, mentally and emotionally. Other symptoms include: weakened memory, mental depression, introversion, indifference to materialistic and sexual desires.
The cause of the Conium condition is often an injury (blows, contusions) to the soft tissue, ailments due to sexual suppression or sexual excess, excitement or overwork.
A case by Paul Herscu demonstrates the effect of this deep acting homeopathic remedy:
I recall treating one woman in her fifties who suddenly developed mastitis. Her right breast was extremely painful and inflamed. The soreness was throughout the breast, especially aggravated by touch or pressure, even from the touch of her bra or clothing.. I found that the breast had multiple nodules and that the nipple had became retracted. the nodules filled the whole breast extending into her axillary glands. It turned out that her horse had kicked her in that breast some months earlier and that after some weeks it felt better, but now all of the sudden this inflammation began. Conium Maculatum 200C stopped the pains that day and the nodules and swelling decreased over the next two days; no other treatment was needed.
