Guest Lecture: Evidence-Based Protocols for Integrating Homeopathy into Breast Cancer Treatment Plans
October 2022: Homeopathics in side-effect management with Pennsylvania Physician of the Year, Dr. Weinhold
Dr. Heidi Weinhold, ND, will discuss the advantages of Integrating Homeopathy into Breast Cancer Treatment Plans. Homeopathic medicine has a low risk of side effects because it is micro dosed. Incorporating Homeopathy is a cost-effective, low risk adjunct treatment and may be considered in patients undergoing mastectomy, breast reconstruction and/or radiation. Homeopathic medicine is available to everyone. Attendees will receive an easy to follow Homeopathic chart that medical providers can use to dose homeopathy and incorporate homeopathic protocols into their Breast Cancer Treatment Plans.
2. Literature review of clinical studies revealing that incorporating homeopathy in Peri-Surgical Protocols reduced drain removal time by 18%, decreased pain, reduced opioid intake, reduced seroma formation, and can potentially improve survival and quality of life for patients living with breast cancer.
3. Review evidence for using homeopathic Calendula cream for radiation induced dermatitis.
4. Review evidence for using Homeopathy as a non-pharmacologic approach for pain relief.
