Sir I have been operated for breast cancer and it has been removed last month on 3rd. As on today no medicine have been given. Breast panal report is yet to come. Is there any other medicine . I heard payala kura ( in the shape of duck legs) is good for cancer treatment if we boil leaves and drink for three days

Dear M. Krishna
Yes, it is used for Cancer, but it is not the most effective one. I have heard a lot of about Cleavers, turmeric and Wheat Grass juice. These are the more effective Herbs that prevent the growth of Cancer cells. This website has also mentioned a number of herbs for Cancer.
You can also try Cannabis Indica tincture, take 5 drops 3 times in a day. Eat Turmeric with black pepper as it increases its boi availability. Eat 3 to 4 Apricot Kernels 2 to 3 times in a day. Consume a shot of Wheat Grass Juice. Try these herbs to control the abnormal growth of Cells.

I am suffering from low fistula from last one year. I am taking homeopathy treatment from last two months. improvement is there. will omega 3 supplement in the form purslane herb (vegetable) help to cure fistula?

What homeopathic medicines have you been taking ?
Please stop all the medicines. Homeopathic medicines are not supposed to be taken continually. You may Apply fresh Aloe Vera gel on the affected parts. Apply daily. Have a capsule of Goldenseal every day to reduce the inflammation, this will also improve.
Have a tablespoon of Stinging Nettle juice 2 times in a day for 1 week.
Take a quarter teaspoon of Baking Soda in a glass and squeeze 1 lemon on it. Let the bubble settle down and add water in it. Have it 2 times in a day.
Report us after 15 days. Also, apply Wheat Germ oil with the help of a cotton ball on the affected area, every day for a week.
