A brain tumour, also known as an intracranial tumour, refers to a growth of an abnormal mass of tissue in the brain due to an uncontrolled multiplication of immature cells. Brain tumours are broadly classified into two groups – primary and metastatic. While primary brain tumours originate from the tissue within brain or its immediate surroundings, metastatic brain tumours originate elsewhere in the body and spread to brain, mostly through bloodstream. Of these, primary brain tumours could be benign or malignant, but metastatic brain tumours are always malignant.

Symptoms of brain tumour may vary according to the location of tumour. The most common symptoms of brain tumour include headaches, confusion, disorientation, problems with vision or hearing, loss of balance and difficulty in thinking or concentrating. Brain tumour may also cause seizures or convulsions.

The primary cause of brain tumour is not yet known; however, there are several well-explained risk factors. Risk of brain tumour increases with age, although some tumours may be more common in the younger age groups. Prolonged exposure to radiation, a family history of brain tumour and other genetic conditions such as Turner syndrome or Gorlin syndrome may also add to the risk.

Diagnosis of brain tumour is mostly done using imaging tests such as CT or MRI scans, which help in determining the type of tumour as well as its nature. In order to make the final diagnosis, a biopsy may be performed. 

There are several remedies in homeopathy which are used for treating the symptoms of brain tumour. Some of these are arnica montana, plumbum metallicum and baryta carb. Studies have found that homeopathic treatment has shown beneficial effects when used as complementary therapy along with conventional treatment.

Homeopathy is a promising approach, which seeks to provide a natural and safe form of treatment with minimal side effects. It works to build innate immunity and improve the underlying tendency of body to tackle disease symptoms.

A study conducted in the UK reveals that homeopathic drugs have demonstrated significant anticancer activity both in vitro and in vivo. An increasing number of patients worldwide have been choosing homeopathic cancer treatments over allopathic treatment.

It has further been indicated that potentised homeopathic drugs can inhibit tumour growth and ultra-low doses of homeopathic medications may be able to decrease tumour induction. However, experts also argue that low-potency homeopathic remedies which contain active molecules can also produce clinical effects.

Homeopathic medications are prepared with natural substances which are diluted effectively to suit individual needs. These remedies are then administered in a very controlled manner, taking into account the overall health history of the individual. Homeopathic remedies are therefore safe to use and do not have any side effects. Nevertheless, treatment must be taken only under the supervision of a certified homeopathic practitioner.

Brain tumour can be benign or malignant. It is usually accompanied by symptoms such as headache, vision problems, confusion and balance problems. This condition has a significant impact on the physical health of an individual and on the quality of their life. Enduring the treatment for cancer in itself requires immense strength. Homeopathy offers a safe and natural form of complementary treatment for brain tumour with no known side effects. It can be safely taken along with conventional medicines for treating brain tumour.
