CARCINOSINUM (A nosode from Carcinoma)
It is claimed the Carcinosin acts favorably and modifies all cases in which either a history of carcinoma can be elicited, or symptoms of the disease itself exist. (J.H. Clarke, M.D.) Carcinosinum has a history of affecting over carcinoma of the mammary glands with great pain and induration of glands; carcinoma of uterus with the offensive discharge.
Hemorrhage and pain are greatly relieved by carcinosinum when the other symptoms agree. Carcinosinum can be considered in indigestion, accumulation of gas in stomach and bowels, rheumatism and Cancerous cachexia (weakness and wasting of the body due to severe chronic illness like cancer).
