passkey, kuldeep etc .... Info on Carcinosin pls

I'm wondering if the homeopaths can give me some deeper information about Carcinosin as i have been researching with interest this complex remedy and the more I read the more the remedy picture and its various phases seem to fit with me...as in, I seem to be a Carcinosin type.

Specifically I have been reading Materia Medica of Carcinosin which , if you scroll down the page, is :

What I am confused about is , at what point would a homeopath go with this remedy for someone like myself, and what would its effects be?

Is this remedy specific to cancer , prevention of/treatment of? There is one death by lung cancer from my aunt on my mother's side, this is all in my family.

The key features as Carcinosin relates to me (all the harsh stuff) are

Childhood -
Over-developed sense of responsibility, alcholic father, fear of abandonment, chronic eczema, asthma, issues always with lung & skin, fearfulness, deeply sensitive and creative without the encouragement to 'blossom'. Very 'adult' environment to grow up in. Not enough play. Lots of adult emotions/intensities which I 'took on'. Also
jaundice at birth.

Teens -
Authority issues, early sexual behaviour, drug use (experimentation , not addiction), heightened emotions at all times, rebelliousness,confusion, misunderstood, asthma & eczema abated but gave way to acne (roaccutane x 2 courses) and ALL SKIN related issues. Susceptibility to infection -frequent colds/flus etc. Candida. Anxiety. Lack of faith in oneself, the world in general... Lack of ambition, direction. Poor self-esteem. Allergies. Food sensitivities. Allergy to penicillin. Constipation. Difficulty moving on / letting go .. PERFECTIONISM (but then, I am a virgo..)

Adulthood - (am 27yrs old)
Health picture (emotinal/physical/spiritual) MUCH improved due to complementary health and healing practices. Acne under control. On silicea for mild scarring - working well. Silicea WORKS WELL on all levels with me. However, I feel like I am 'stuck', lacking in energy , 'burnt out' from the emotional intensity of my life and not sufficiently involved in exterior world from pressures of my interior.
Still have issues with moving on and letting go. Fear of failure. Tendency to sadness, lethargy, regrets. Perfectionist. BIG on detail.

GENERALITIES: am cold person, like moderate warmth but not extremes. Love rain, thunderstorms when am indoors. Like most foods. Dislike feeling too full. Happy in my own company.

Any more info, I'll be happy to provide.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Carcinosin MAY be right .

BUT there are pointers to Ars Alb (perfectionism)

Have a look at that .

Carcinosin ..........
Bluey whites to the eyes as a baby. Easy tan skin , some difficulty sleeping,early inflammatory illness, cancer in family history.

Yes to bluey whites and easy tan skin. What kind of inflammatory illness? As to cancer, as i mentioned , it is there - lung cancer in aunt, but no more that i'm aware of.

I'm interested in WHY the Carcinosin and what it would be affecting/effecting in me.

Have read on another previous post that Carcinosin produced a virulent skin rash in weeks after. Er, please no MORE rashes, acne etc etc ..this does not sound appealing to me , what with my prevalence of skin issues !

My mum told me there is more cancer in the family actually. Her other sister has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

OK go with carcinosin 10m -- one single tablet only!.

Wait 3 weeks to judge any result, and report- before if poblems.

Could you go into more detail about what the Carcinosin would be for specifically & also whether it's ok to take other remedy at same time as i'm taking silcea. Thanks for your response walkin .

Hi! Carlotta

i have many of the same symptoms as yours and my main problem is perfectionism leading to depression and anxiety, low self esteem , etc (no known family history of cancer). I tried Carcinocinum CM (Dr. Willmar schwabe labs germany) and took, i believe, three doses at about 6 month intervals...I DONT THINK THAT IT HELPED ME AT ALL...even if it did , it might have been so subtle that i didnt appreciate it.

..another interesting thing...there are more that one types of carcinocin..the one available in USA is made from one breast tumor while the one in europe is from 15 - 48 tumors !! Both have diff effects..... (see http://www.tinussmits.nl/english/dynamic.htm?main=http://www.tinussmits.com/english/inspiring/carcinosinum/intro.htm

I was very hopeful that it would cure me but maybe i didnt use the RIGHT carcinocin !? maybe there was some other miasmatic BLOCK? WHO KNOWS?

...homeo is still in its infancy and there is lack of standardisation and much variation in its practice.

Hope that helps

Take care.

Alfalfa - thank you very much for taking the time to repond. Very interesting. Would be interested to hear from anyone else who has taken Carcinocin and its effects?

Thanks again.

Wait a moment....

Carc. is a very powerful medicine, but it is rarely a constitutional remedy. Often it is used after a constitutional remedy only if there are problems.

I recommend that the patients who are talking about Carcinocin use this form and complete it in a new discussion so that a homeopath can give their case the study necessary to help them identify their correct remedy.

Carcinosin is a remedy that should be used with care. It is a rarely used medicine.
