Abstract BACKGROUND: Increasingly, patients are surviving cancer and presenting with new health challenges, and there is greater demand for self-help and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). AIM: To explore the benefits of a three-month course of individualised homeopathy (IH) for survivors of cancer. DESIGN: Small, community-based study. SETTING: Hampshire, UK. METHOD: Fifteen survivors of any type of cancer were recruited by a walk-in cancer support centre. Conventional treatment had to have taken place within the last three years. Patients scored their total, physical and emotional wellbeing using the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy for Cancer (FACIT-G) before and after receiving four IH sessions. RESULTS: Eleven women had statistically positive results for emotional, physical and total wellbeing based on FACIT-G scores. CONCLUSION: Findings support previous research, suggesting CAM or IH could be beneficial for survivors of cancer.
