My work in cancer cases has been going on, each case being a challenge and each case
proving to be a milestone. Unbelievable results taking us to ecstasy and unrelenting
march of the disease sending us to the very depths of depression. I must admit the latter
more often than the former.
However continuous work in pursuit of facing the challenge has given me the opportunity of
refining and redefining our tools.
I wish to narrate a case of Glioblastoma Multiforme. A lady 36 years old married and
2 children, saw me in 2005. The first symptoms were Headaches, recurrent and becoming
more and more frequent and intense over a period of 2 to 3 months finally led her to see
a Neurologist and with MRI was diagnosed to have Glioblastoma Multiforme.
The patient declined to have radiation that was suggested by her Oncologist.
The reason for bringing up this case is that a rather unusual remedy came up which is not
in my “favourite” list of “organ remedies”!? For Gliomas and the kind I normally try to
see if remedies like Baryta Carb, Plumbum Iodatum and the like would come up.
This case presented itself as a typical Calcarea Carb, constitutionally. Obese, chilly,
laid back, at the same time restless, impatient, impulsive, emotional, sentimental,
fond of food and so on – Calc Carb actually led me to consider Calc Ars!
One characteristic feature of the Calcarea Arsenicum is that they get headaches on the
side not-lain-on. And this was present in this case.
The reason that strengthened the selection was that I have used in innumerable cases of
Epileptic Seizures and also seizures due to space occupying lesion.
Putting all this together, I ventured to use Calc.Ars 200c in “Plussing dose” for 1 week,
alternating week with Carcinosin 200c. in plussing dose.
I went on with the same potency; each month the case was reviewed and the symptoms
were dramatically getting better. By the end of 3 months she hardly had 1 or 2 bouts of
headaches in a month that too very mild. At the end of 3 months we went for MRI of the
Brain and the lesions were definitely better; some completely gone and most of them no
From here I went on to the next higher Potency – Calc. Ars 1m but the Carcinosin would
be the same 200c. After a 3 months period further reduction. Continued the same remedy
and potency for 3 more months. By the time we completed 1 year the MRI showed the
lesions were 75 to 80% gone. Patient is in absolute comfort.
After 1 year has passed, I pushed up the potencies to CALCAREA ARS 10M amd
CARCINOSIN 1M – to be taken alternate week in plussing dose and this was done
for 3 months.
After 1 year and 3 months I stopped the “plussing dose” and went on to CALCAREA ARS 10M.
Split dose (3 pills x 4 times in a day) for 1 day only. A month later Carcinosin 1m split dose
(3 pills x 4 times for 1 day only). And this was continued alternate months for the next 1 year.
I stopped active prescribing by the time. We completed 2 ½ years.
6 months back the MRI was repeated and the findings were the same as last.
Very stable. Patient in good health. Now 5 years have passed.
This is once again a case to illustrate that seemingly unrelated to the Pathology,
the remedy when properly matched can bring about a cure and ever since this case,
I am including Calcarea Arsenicum as one of the “organ remedies” for the Brain Tumors.
