Homeopathy rests upon three fundamental paradigms. These paradigms are as follows: 1.       Each substance has a unique energy. 2.       This energy not only remains in a solution of the substance but increases (paradoxically) as the concentration of the substance in the solution decreases. 3.       Illness can be cured by administering the energy in the form of a dilute solution    of a   substance, which produces symptoms (in a healthy person) of the illness one want to cure. Any homeopathic approach has to rest on these 3 hypothesis which form the belief and principle behind homeopathic treatment. In homeopathic management, cancer is treated like any other disease except for the following:- 1.       Cancer is not a primary manifestation but a result of a series of disease processes culminating in cancer. 2.       In treating cancer time is of the essence where a classics approach of giving a remedy and waiting will not match the rapid progress of most cancerous growth. 3.       Unraveling the 'similimum' of the disease picture to the remedy has to penetrate   the layers of the presenting state of the patient to reach the active dynamics disease that is causing the present picture. Hence with the above in mind, this paper will seek to outline various approaches in the management of Cancer via Homeopathic remedies as well as the adjuvant measures advocated which are in line with the Hahnemannian Homeopathic approach. With this in mind, we will take the audience through Cooper’s management, Ramakrishnan's Method Dr.Ardavan Shahrdar's approach and my own experience with cancer patients. We will then discuss the palliative option via homeopathy incurable cases. In conclusion, Homeopathy offers a non invasive and hopeful as well s humane approach to cancer management.
