Treatment of Ascites


Can malignancy-caused ascites be treated with homeopathy? In my case it is due to peritoneal carcinoma. There is a YouTube video that shows it being cured without tapping or surgery.

Dear N. Shah,

As you probably know, ascites is a gastroenterological term for an accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity. It can be caused by a variety of things, including cancer in the abdomen (such as yours), severe liver damage such as that caused by blood clots, congestive heart failure, pancreatitis, and hepatitis C. 

The video you provided is proof of the amazing things that homeopathy can accomplish!  Often, we see such things only in countries like India, where homeopathy is utilized as a mainstream form of medicine. Here in the United States, this kind of healing with homeopathy is rarely seen, since most people will go to conventional doctors in such cases.  Indeed, American homeopaths would be extremely reluctant not to refer to a doctor in a case as severe as the one in this video, for fear of prosecution.

Yes, I have no doubt that a case like this is legitimate. There are many remedies in the Materia Medica associated with ascites — around 100 remedies. Which one will be the best one for you will really depend on the details of your entire case. My recommendation is to see an expert homeopath. There are several in India who specialize especially in cancer treatment, and they may be able to help you — for instance:

I hope this is helpful to you and others!



Have a Question For Amy?

    Are there any in the united states? New york?

      Michele, if you contact either of the Indian homeopaths cited above, I believe they may treat remotely or have proxies who operate in the United States. However, any experienced classical homeopath will try to help with whatever health problem you are experiencing, even if they are not allowed (legally) to help you with cancer per se. Homeopathy works by stimulating your own body to heal itself — in other words, it does not heal by forcing any chemical change upon the body. That said, many homeopathic practitioners tend specialize in certain kinds of problems, like the Banerjis and Ramakrishnan who specialize in cancer treatment. I hope this is helpful! -Amy
