A positive approach to
the treatment of glands enlarged (malignant/benign)
Writer’s views: Many a case of uterine fibroid and other growths, malignant or benign have been cured with homoeopathic remedies. The writer claims that homoeopathic medicines may decidedly cure even the cancerous growths until the biopsy has been done. In his own views, the biopsy is never favourable to the patient because it is not a treatment, but merely a check-up against malignancy whether it exists in the particular part or not. In contrary, biopsy may, sometimes, become much harmful to the patient, when the infection that creates malignancy gets a way to come out of its limited range and spreads out through blood stream into other parts of the body. According to the writer so many patients are still alive and living a normal life, whom he suggested not to go for biopsy before he treated them.
Lapis Albus is the most important remedy in all kinds of growths whether it is malignant or benign. Dr. V. Grauvogl introduced this remedy at first, which was found in suspension in the mineral springs of Gastein, Germany. He was led to the proving of this drug with the fact that cretinism and goitre abounded among people accustomed to drink from these springs flowing over formations of gneiss. Since it has been proved, verified and credited to be very useful in various forms of new growths. It is, just, like a Victoria (four wheeled carriage), which rules over its four wheels such as, lipoma, epithelioma, fibroma and carcinoma those are being paddled by cretinism. Obviously, Lapis Albus is a strong remedy that can remove the growths of all kinds to an invisible extent that they can’t reappear. Alas! This powerful remedy couldn’t get its proper place in materia madicas and repertories written by different wise writers and doctors. Here three cases of enlarged glands, which have been, successfully, cured with Lapis Albus are being mentioned as under:
Case No. (1)
On October 2, 2002 Mr. M aged 43, a tiny person1 having a height 4 feet 9 inches, came with his wife to my clinic for the treatment of a gland enlarged, which he had been suffering from more than six months. In the beginning it appeared like a cystic tumour as big as a wild plumb on the left side of the neck, but soon it began to develop more & more and within a period of six months it covered a good rounded shape like that of a pumpkin.
In the duration of his disease, the sufferer consulted many a doctor of different therapies, such as allopathic surgeons, Eunani Hakims, Ayurvedacharyas and some renowned homoeopathic consultants, but the result was nothing. No one could relieve him. The stitching pain in the tumour couldn’t be controlled. Some of the allopathic surgeons suggested him to get it operated because they diagnosed it as a carcinoma/sarcoma (a tumour having malignancy) but Mr. M was not agreed to operate it. Then he made an approach to me. He showed me the prescriptions of a homoeopathic physician, in which he had prescribed so many medicines to be taken three times a day with the gap of 6 hours.
For example, Baryta Iod 30 in the morning, Badiaga 30 in the noontime and Calcarea Iod 30 in the evening was given for one week and later on, having found no result, spongia 200 in the morning and Carbo Animalis 200 in the evening were managed to the next week. Mr. M asked me about that prescription how it was, but I gave no comments on the excellence of former homoeopath and suggested him to be quite temperate having a deep patience under my treatment otherwise I wont take the case in my hand.
Afterwards, I concentrated looking into the case more seriously, that had been deformed by the doctors of different therapies especially by a homoeopath. During investigation Mr. M told me that he often felt a burning and shooting pain on the lower orifice of his stomach and many a time that burning sensation reached the cardia followed by a sick headache yet he was ready to eat all the time having a ravenous appetite.
“How does this burning and shooting pain, arose in your stomach, subside then? Do you take any medicine to get it controlled?” I asked him.
He told, “No sir, no medicine is effective at that time, I only take a glassful ice-water that gives me relief. I use ice-water even in winter season too.”
“If there is no cold water available, what do you do then?” I talked ahead. He said, “Then I take some sweets.” We were talking about the case, mean while, his wife shouted, “Doctor Sahib, he is much fond of sweets. I am very tired of this bad habit of my husband. Whatever it may be, though, we have no bread to eat, children have no clothes to wear, but eating of the sweets is compulsory to him.”
Mr. M felt ashamed of and said, “What should I do, doctor sahib, the sweet things are the best medicines to me. I think I won’t survive with out them.” Then I told her about the compulsiveness of sweets to her husband and began to select an appropriate remedy according to the rubrics those are as under:
Rubrics taken from:
(2) sick headache,
(3) ravenous appetite,
(4) burning & shooting pain in Pylorus and Cardia,
(5) much fond of sweets,
(6) Craves much for Ice-water,
I did not waste much more time in thinking what the tumour was, malignant or benign, thyroidal or goitre. Actually, I considered it simply an enlargement of cervical gland. All the above rubrics found out during the investigation were tallied with the characteristics of the remedy Lapis Albus to a wide extent. Therefore, a single dose of Lapis Albus 30 daily early morning followed by Placebo at night was given for two weeks. On the due date when Mr. M came, appeared to be much better than before. Stitching pain in the tumour was almost gone and other problems like sick headache, ravenous appetite were diminished too.
Now, Lapis Albus 30 was given on the alternate day and placebo occupied the vacant place of Lapis Albus. Thus, the gland enlarged (that had been changed into a big fatty tumour) remained just a half within a period of two months and many of his problems were too diminished. He and his family members were very much satisfied but, unfortunately, one day he was injured in a road accident and died away otherwise, he would be completely cured by next two months.
Case No. (2)
Master K, aged 8 years old, suffering from painful enlarged glands like medium-size potatoes on both the sides of the neck was brought to me on 15th January 2002. While examining the child I got three glands more on his occiput, which were like the hard nuts, but slightly smaller than first two on the neck. The parents were so sunken in grief that with out saying a single word they put some blood-reports before me. I got lymphocytes 126 % (highly increased) and nutrophiles 16 only as mentioned in the report. Percentage of hemoglobin-6.5 while E.S.R. reached 110. All the reports were, of course, abnormal and the disease, whatsoever it might be, was seemed at its advanced stage. Allopathic doctors had advised the parents for Biopsy of the glands to find out the actual disease.
Actually, most of the wise allopaths were taking this disease in different ways like lymphoblastoma; a malignant lymphoma in which single or multiple tumours arise from lymphoblast in lymph nodes/lymphadenoma; a variety of cancer/Hodgkin’s disease: a kind of cancer or pseudoleukemia; a progressive hyperplasia of the lymphatic glands associated with anaemia and so on.
While watching the reports, I noticed the parents were about to weep, but anyhow, they controlled themselves and asked me if their son would be all right. “Yes ! Certainly he will be all right, but both of you (parents) must have to take some precautions regarding your son’s betterment.”
I prohibited all the cold things to eat and drink. In the mean time, the mother shouted “Doctor sahib, please say to him, he always use ice-water even in the winter season too.” Then I gave the sufferer and his parents some instructions to follow up very strictly and warned if they won’t do so, no doctor might cure him. The parents made a promise to follow my instructions very seriously as they don’t want to lose their only son. The parents told me that a renowned surgeon had referred the case for biopsy but due to lack of money biopsy couldn’t be done. Actually, this short of money made their child’s life secure. I consoled his parents and began to investigate the case seriously. During investigation what important and noticeable symptoms I found are being laid down here:
Stinging pain in all the glands followed with a sick headache,
2. Fond of toffees and sweet dishes; aversion to salt,
3. Crave for chill water,
4. Poor appetite, sometimes a ravenous hunger,
5. Two glands on the neck were elastic but three others on the occiput stony hard,
6. Dwarfish, victim of cretinism that was not hereditary, Parents and grand parents had an average height,
After getting out of the investigations, I gave him a single dose of Lapis Albus 30 at the very moment and prepared more some doses of this remedy followed by SL on alternate day. After a week, the patient reached my clinic with a better position. The pain was not so severe and the glands looked much decreased. Chill water and toffees had not been given from that day forth.
I was told that the patient had got his diet improved. The treatment remained continue for a fortnight in the same way and by 30th January 2oo2 all the glands were too diminished. Therefore, Lapis Albus was stopped for a week, but SL continued in that duration. Next time I noticed that the glands were too improved and the pain was almost gone. Thus the partly treatment with Lapis Albus continued for six months and by the last of July 2002 the child got entirely recovered and reached his originality. The blood reports were taken out in which no abnormality was found. Later on, bearing his cretinism in mind and suspecting lest subsided glands may take a turn back, I gave the final touch to the treatment giving the patient Bacillinum 1m, as a monthly dose for next three months that made him perfectly cured. Bacillinum promoted his growth too and rooted out the recurrence all of his problems, which were created by the glandular disease.
Case No. (3)
Mrs. X, a young lady of 28, contacted me year before the last year in March 2002. She was suffering from lipoma just above the right breast tending towards armpit. In the beginning, gland was as big as a lizard’s egg but gradually it began to develop and appeared like a sparrow’s egg. Then within the period of next two months, it covered a big shape like that of a hen’s egg. Noticeable point was that, as soon as it was growing up, a burning and shooting sensation was reaching its severity. She had consulted so many doctors & surgeons, who all of them advised to get ready for operation after biopsy, however, the report shows malignancy or not. When she came in my contact, I strictly forbade doing so. During investigation I knew that she had been suffering from some other problems those were not less troublous than that of the lipoma.
She had painful menses and sometimes the pain was so severe that she was
2. Preceding the menses flow produced pruritus vulvae.
3. Shooting and stinging pain in the breasts and uterus.
4. Catamenia was too early, profuse and long existing that weakened her.
5. Craving for cold water,
6. She felt something spherical in her pelvic region.
Suspecting an abnormality therein, I referred her for ultrasonic examination that reported a complicated ovarian cyst at the right ovary. The nature of the patient’s body needed the remedy Lapis Albus therefore; a dose of it was managed in the early morning constantly for one week that gave satisfactory result. She got her lipoma slightly reduced and severity of the pain was too diminished. Now Lapis Albus 30 was given on the alternate morning followed by Sac Lac. After two weeks treatment, the remedy Lapis Albus was stopped and only Saccharum Lactis remained continue.
Within a month, the result was very nice. Two-third part of the lipoma (the gland above the breast) was disappeared. Now there was no burning and stinging pain either in lipoma or in ovarian cyst. This practice of treatment carried on almost for four months. Once again, the ultrasonic revision was taken out that resulted a great satisfaction; ¾ part of the ovarian cyst had been reduced. Thus, the treatment took maximum six months to be over, which left no abnormality in her body. Moreover, by the end of September 2002 Mrs. X became quite well. No further recurrence came to know after completion of the course.
