Cancer pains can be rated as one of the worst nightmares for any cancer patient. Tumors especially 4th stage with extensive spread having bone metastasis and nerve involvement can hamper quality of life to a large extent.
To counter act this agony one of the wonder drug in the world of conventional medicine is the opiate derivative ‘Morphine’. Unfortunately it being a Narcotic its legalities and the availability leaves the patient with very limited choice but to suffer.
Common Opioid derivative side-effects are :
Drowsiness,severe constipation,respiratory distress and psychological depression.It usage at times could be very limited especially with patients having respiratory compromise and cerebral metastasis.
Dealing with such cases I came across Morphinum a remedy not so frequently used by homeopaths in pain management.
William Boericke’s Homeopathic materia medica documents symptoms corresponding with cancer pains and psychology of the patient.
Mind – Profound depression,dream like state
Nervous system – Hyperesthesia,extremely susceptible to pain,violent and sudden neuralgic pains and sudden fainting.Neuralgia extremely painful,multiple neuritis.
Sleep – Restless sleep ,sleepy but cannot sleep
Dose : 3rd to 6th trituration.
These are the exact symptoms the patient experiences during severe pain and at times the pain threshold could be so much ending one’s life in a Neurogenic shock syndrome compromising quality of life to a very large extent.
Personally I have used Morphinum6c extensively in patients of 4th stage carcinoma complaining of the characteristic pains over the past few years giving me excellent results. The dosages could be in low potency of Morphinum6c in frequent intervals and again depends on the intensity of the pain and pathology of the disease.
A clinical based observation study following the protocol of good clinical practice done by my team and me showed Morphinum6 given along with other Allopathic opiate pain killers helped patients in the same intensity and over a period of time there was a marked reduction of the opiate dosages and other pain killers too.
Reduction of drug dosages saves the patient from opiate side effects of severe drowsiness and gastric dysfunctions, further reduction of pain helps patient regain appetite and improves sleep pattern and together helps cancer depression.
Integrating Homeopathic remedy Morphinum could certainly help patients cope at a delicate stage of life suffering with cancer pains by achieving a good quality of life with minimal opiate usage giving more hours of wakefulness,minimal constipation,reduction of depression and dignity during last days of life for them.
