Title: Cancer pain is multifactorial and complex.
Aim: Pain is a common companion of people receiving palliative care in cancer and at the end of life. Cancer pain is multifactorial and complex. Its impact can be devastating, with increased morbidity and poor quality of life, if not treated adequately. Homeopathy is a "treatment" based on the use of highly diluted substances, which can cause the body to heal itself. Homoeopathy works on the patient in disease rather than disease in the patient by strengthening the body’s immune response Cancer pain management is a challenging task both due to disease process and due to treatment-related side effects; therefore, it requires a holistic approach which can be covered by homoeopathic remedies.Homoeopaths understand that the body mind and emotions are not independent and distinct, but are fully integrated in health, disease and treatment. Based on this holistic perspective, homoeopaths uses remedies prepared from natural sources that fit a patients physical, mental, social and spiritual aspects to stimulate body’s own healing powers. There is a need of multidimensional approach towards the cancer pain palliation and at the end of life in which homoeopathy may play a key role of supportive care.
Homoeopathy may become a valuable treatment in palliative care to provide relief and comfort to the dying patient, and therefore the fear of death may reduce and the family may be better prepared for the bereavement.Homoeopathy can well integrate with standard oncologic cares to improve patient outcome including symptom burden, quality of life and end-of-life outcomes, all achieved with low associated costs as in the case of patients in their end pf life stage need cost effective quality care.
