In the mid 1980s, A. U. Ramakrishnan, a homeopath based in Madras, India, started seeing more cancer patients filling his waiting room. That only made him more determined to find homeopathic treatments for the disease, which had claimed the lives of his two older siblings.

“I started trying various methodologies with homeopathic medicine, working with various, even mad permutations and combinations,” he says. “When people have cancer in a terminal stage, you’re desperate to give them some relief.”

Through many years of clinical research, Ramakrishnan eventually developed a new protocol that alternated doses of a homeopathic remedy targeted to the affected organ with doses of carcinosin, a remedy made from cancerous human tissue. He also developed a new approach of giving these two remedies in frequently repeated doses.

Since Ramakrishnan started the protocol in 1994, he says he has had particularly good results in patients with breast cancer, prostate cancer and esophageal cancer. Although he estimates cure rates of around 80 percent for these cancers in the thousands of patients he’s seen, he’s very quick to add, “This is not to say that I have found a cure for cancer, or that all cancer cases are cured by me. We are very, very far from that.”

Ramakrishnan collaborates with oncologists in India and internationally, and emphasizes the importance of surgery and modern imaging and diagnostic technology in treating and monitoring cancer. “The only things I don’t approve of are chemo and radiation, because they’re so toxic,” he says. He adds that over the past 10 years he’s seen oncologists become much more open-minded about their patients using homeopathy. “It’s a question of mind,” he says. “If you have an open mind, you can work together.

“Ultimately, it is one’s own energy that beats the disease, and not any doctor’s medicine.”
