Dr. Kalyan Banerjee, Founder, Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic shares his views on homeopathy & cancer
Homeopathic treatment regimens, developed by the city-based Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic, has proven to demonstrate efficacy in treating the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and cancer surgery. A five-year follow up has also confirmed that the rate of recurrence of some cancers is very low.
The regimen either completely removes or greatly reduces the most common side-effects of cancer treatments such as vomiting, pain, nausea, hair loss, and organ failure, so that the patients can continue and complete the course of their treatment without delay. The homeopathy treatment for side effects can be continued along with oncological interventions and 80% of the patients of the Clinic have managed side effects while they are solely on homeopathy, without having to take additional allopathic medicines.
Commenting about the side effects of cancer treatment, and the homeopathic regimen, Dr. Kalyan Banerjee, M.D. (Hom.), Padma Shri Recipient, says, “Over 70% of the cancer patients treated at our clinic are those who have already received conventional treatment and their disease is no longer responding to it. More than 30% of patients of advanced hepato-cellular carcinoma exceed the maximum survival time of 24 months under conventional treatment while more than 90% patients of early squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity cross the five-year survival mark, which is comparable to conventional treatment. We are frequently exceeding the five-year survival percentage of glioblastoma multiforme as compared to conventional management. Survival estimates given by oncologists to patients of advanced stage cancers of the lungs, pancreas and ovaries who have not responded to all forms of chemotherapy and radiation, are exceeded by patients on homeopathic treatment at the Clinic.”
In modern medicine, there are three main forms of treating cancer, chemotherapy (which includes hormonal therapy), radiation therapy, and cancer surgery. Depending on the type and stage of cancer, and their age, patients can opt for one of these or a combination of these interventions. Treatments with conventional medicines can be fraught with many dreaded side effects such as nausea, vomiting, non-healing of the surgical site, secondary infection of the site or of any other system during the recuperative phase, pain, weight loss or gain, damage to blood cells, diarrhoea, tooth decay, hair loss, and fatigue. These reactions can sometimes be very severe and may lead to organ failure in some cases.
Dr. Kushal Banerjee says, “Fearing the side effects, patients tend to delay or avoid interventions like chemotherapy. Also, patients are often unable to continue their treatment as a result of the negative impact of the treatment on the blood counts. Fortunately, homeopathy can be used to manage these side effects without pain and fear of damage to the body. The outcomes of our regimens in managing the side effects of chemo, radiation, and surgical interventions, exceed some of those of the conventional, allopathic methodologies.”
He added, “People do not have to avoid or delay chemotherapy or radiation that could render the entire treatment ineffective. At our clinic, we see more than a hundred cases of cancer in a day both for cancer treatment, and for treatment of the side effects of the allopathic cancer treatments. Over decades of experience and the management of hundreds of thousands of cancer patients, we could develop and standardize treatment regimens that are very effective. When patients want to continue the conventional treatment like chemotherapy, we help them mitigate the side effects.”
Dr. Kalyan Banerjee’s Clinic has also conducted research on renal (related to kidney) dysfunction, and liver related issues in cancer patients, and their homeopathic management. The clinic has arrived at a number of specific combinations of homeopathic medicines used in the treatment regimens that can help improve kidney functions in a majority of patients.
