Answered by Dr. Christina Chambreau:
First, you have to understand that homeopathy is an individualized medicine. That’s the only way it can work in its most brilliant, effective way. Individual cases show that it is possible with good homeopathic prescribing to resolve mouth cancer in a cat.
All of the symptoms that your cat has now, not just the mouth cancer, and has always had in the past are carefully evaluated and compared to the testing that was done on thousands of homeopathic remedies and written up in books. We compare the symptoms of your cat so we’re individualizing the choice of medicine with those remedies that were tested to find the one that most closely fits your cat. And then equally important as the selection of which remedy is following up to see how is your cat responding to that treatment.
The tumor is not going to just magically go away overnight, so you have to evaluate all of the symptoms very carefully to know whether it is time for a new homeopathic remedy or to stick with this one and change the frequency or quantity of dosage. So it’s a very individualized medicine. Unfortunately, there is no one answer for that question.
