Homeopathy works by treating the whole dog—not just the symptoms of his ailment—and helping him restore balance to both his body and mind. When you take your dog to a vet, they’re going to treat him with conventional medicine that might help with his symptoms but won’t get at the root cause or help him regain balance.
However, when you work with a homeopathic practitioner, they’ll look at your dog’s whole health and personality, including his history and his current state of being. They’ll then prescribe a remedy based on those factors.
‘Like Cures Like’
Homeopathy is a natural, holistic approach to health care. It’s based on the principle that “like cures like,” meaning that you can treat an illness by introducing the same substance that caused it. This is often done by diluting a substance over and over again until it’s virtually undetectable—then administering it to treat symptoms.
The idea of homeopathy is rooted in the notion that “like cures like,” or that a substance can cure symptoms when introduced in small doses. This treatment was first formulated by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700s, who believed that all ailments could be treated with small amounts of substances that cause similar symptoms.
Homeopathy has been used for centuries as an alternative therapy for chronic conditions such as allergies and asthma; however, there is no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness.
Homeopathic Cancer Remedies for Dogs
Some common cancer remedies include:
Calcarea carbonica: This remedy helps to restore the body’s ability to absorb calcium and alkalize the blood. It is often recommended for bone tumors, skin cancer, and lymphoma.
Lachesis muta: This remedy can be used in cases where there is a lot of inflammation in the body, such as when the dog has been given chemotherapy or radiation therapy. It is also useful for dogs who have experienced severe trauma to their bodies such as being hit by a car or attacked by another animal.
Sulfur: If your dog has been diagnosed with cancer, this remedy may be helpful because it helps detoxify the body from toxins that may be responsible for causing cancer cells to grow at an accelerated rate.
