Is homoeopathy useful in the advanced stages of lung cancer?

To a certain extent. Homoeopathy may reduce the symptoms of the disease and the side effects of the conventional treatment. But no evidence suggests that a homoeopathic treatment can treat or cure lung cancer. Also, no credible published research paper suggests homoeopathy can kill the cancer cells and inhibit the formation of new ones in the future.

The published studies only show that incorporating homoeopathy with ongoing anticancer treatment can reduce the symptoms that may arise from the cancer growth or treatments like chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery. The available scientific evidence suggests that homoeopathic treatment might improve the overall quality of life which can contribute to a longer life expectancy in some cases.
