Palliative - Spectrum of Homeopathy 02/2016
Markus Kuntosch: Light in the darkness
Three cases demonstrate the potential of homeopathy in palliative medicine. Helleborus brightens the dark night of the soul experienced by a cancer patient who lost the courage to live due to his incurable illness. In another case, the symptoms of sepsis caused by a port infection rapidly decline with Lachesis. Finally, a high-potency dose of Opium eventually wakes a patient from her comatose state following a stroke.
