Stomach cancer or gastric cancer is the result of uncontrolled cell growth in the inner lining of the stomach. The condition is often unrecognisable in the early stages as its symptoms are similar to other diseases like gastritis and ulcer. Common symptoms of stomach cancer include nausea and vomiting, feeling bloated even after a small meal, coughing out blood or blood in stool with indigestion

Fortunately, facts and data collected from hospitals and cancer centres state that the percentage of stomach cancer is less than the global average in India. Stomach cancer cases are reported to be highest in northern and southernmost states of the country, the common reason for this being their dietary habits and an increased intake of tobacco and alcohol in the north.

Conventionally, stomach cancer treatment comprises surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The beginning phase of treatment in such conditions can be frightening and unsettling for many individuals. It requires a strong will and a conscious decision to follow a healthier approach.

Taking up homeopathy as the primary treatment is a comparatively better alternative to radiation and other antibiotics, which over the course of time deteriorate the body.

Homeopathy describes an array of remedies and mixtures for the treatment of cancer. These are tailored to the symptoms and condition of an individual and aim at improving overall health. There is no "one drug suits all" in homeopathy. A homeopathic physician performs an extensive examination, jotting all the points of an individual’s past medical record including diet and other factors before prescribing a medicine. Consequently, every medicine is tailored to individual condition and does not suit every individual alike. Some of the most common homeopathic remedies prescribed in cancer are arnica, belladonna, kali carbonicum and others. Medications belladonna and kalium carbonicum have been effective in curbing several symptoms of stomach cancer.

Eating habits along with a persons’ lifestyle greatly affect the prognosis of gastric or stomach cancer. The disease itself is an unsettling and troubling condition where one has to deal with an immense amount of anxiety, and it requires a lot of strength to face the condition. Several habits picked along the course of life also affect the development of this condition, either positively or negatively. Some of the essential habits one should follow in such conditions are mentioned below along with a list of possible habits and addictions that should be kept in check.


  • An individual affected by stomach cancer must have a peaceful environment around them with the least amount of worry and exertion possible
  • A proper dietary plan must be followed by including fresh vegetables and fruits and avoiding non-vegetarian diet, which can cause an upset stomach
  • Maintaining cleanliness around the person is an important step in almost every treatment procedure
  • Clothing and the individual’s personal hygiene should be arranged according to their choice and what suits them best


  • Food with excessive salt or sugar must be avoided; sour products should also be kept at bay as they can easily hinder the working of homeopathic remedies
  • Caffeinated beverages including coffee should not be consumed
  • Indulgence in alcohol or smoking is strongly advised against 
  • Spicy or junk foods with no nutritional content and substances that negatively impact the health must be avoided
  • Do not keep your living environment untidy or unclean

Generally, homeopathic remedies are progressively administered to an individual since they act on more than one condition of the body. So, unlike allopathy, homeopathic medicines do not have any adverse effects. In fact, in several conditions, homeopathic treatment is also administered as an alternative to conventional radiation or chemotherapy. 

In conditions like cancer, people often go with the conventional methods of treatment, deeming homeopathy as a slow process that can result in the condition worsening over time. But studies carried out by reputed practitioners and laboratories state that the introduction of homeopathic medicine over the course of the general treatment process can help immensely in suppressing several of the symptoms of cancer. The adverse effects of chemotherapy or radiation that results in frequent vomiting, nausea, blood passing through stool and vomiting can also be curbed using homeopathic remedies.

In an observational study, 65 people with different types and stages of cancer including stomach cancer in the early stages were treated with homeopathic medications, either alone or in conjunction with conventional medicine. Results of this study indicated that homeopathic medications is effective in the treatment of tumours, in some cases curing them completely. 

Another study involved 158 participants in stage III or stage IV of the disease, of which, 42 had gastric or stomach cancer with no past record of chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Homeopathic treatment in these patients was reported to have a positive effect on cancer symptoms. Around 38% of the cases with gastric/stomach cancer noted significant improvement in their condition. No side effects were observed in any patient.

Homeopathic medicines are prescribed after taking a thorough and extensive medical history of the individual. These medicines are administered in highly diluted dosages, which in itself pose no threat to the ongoing condition and does not interfere with any other form of medication.

Furthermore, it has been ascertained by research studies on several subjects including gastric and other types of cancer, that these remedies do not show any negative effects. Though a recorded few have complained about rashes and small irritations, nothing of significance that negates the effect of treatment was found. 

Since homeopathic medicines are given on the basis of individual symptoms and miasms, it is best that you consult an experienced doctor before taking these medicines and avoid self-medication at all costs. Not every medicine suits everyone equally.

Also, it is highly advised that a person seeking homeopathic medication along with conventional treatment of cancer should inform both the doctors about the medicines for better insight and treatment process.
