Glioblastoma Multiforme – Symptoms and Homeopathy Treatment

At Welling Homeopathy Clinics, we have a specially formulated Homeopathy treatment for Glioblastoma Multiforme which can halt the progress of cancer. That is the reason we suggest to start our Homeopathy treatment as soon as the diagnosis is made or soon after the chemo or radiation for Glioblastoma is completed.

What is Glioblastoma Multiforme?

Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme, GBM or grade IV astrocytoma, is a fast-growing, aggressive type of central nervous system tumor that forms on the supportive tissue of the brain. Glioblastomas (GBM) are tumors that arise from astrocytes—the star-shaped cells that make up the “glue-like,” or supportive tissue of the brain. These tumors are usually highly malignant (cancerous) because the cells reproduce quickly and they are supported by a large network of blood vessels.Glioblastoma is the most common grade IV brain cancer. Glioblastomas may appear in any lobe of the brain, but it develops more commonly in the frontal and temporal lobes. Glioblastoma usually affects adults.

Causes of Glioblastoma

Like many brain tumour types, the exact cause of glioblastoma multiforme is not known, but increasingly research is pointing toward genetic mutations.

  • Can be composed of several different cell types
  • Can develop directly or evolve from a lower grade glioma (secondary GBM)
  • Less common in children
  • Most common in older individuals and more common in men than women
  • Most of these tumours occur in the cerebral hemisphere and often involves the corpus callosum
  • The cells of these tumours grow quickly, are not well defined, and they may frequently spread throughout the brain

Glioblastoma Symptoms

Symptoms of glioblastoma vary depending on the location of the tumor, but they may include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Double or blurred vision
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Changes in mood or personality
  • Changes in-ability to think and learn
  • Memory loss
  • New onset of seizures
  • Muscle weakness
  • Speech difficulty

Treatment for Glioblastoma

Common glioblastoma treatments include:

Surgery: Surgical resection, which requires a craniotomy, is typically the first stage of treatment for patients with glioblastomas. Surgery may also allow for the removal of tumor tissue to relieve pressure in the brain caused by the tumor.

Radiation therapy: Radiation may be recommended after surgery for some glioblastomas. It may also be necessary to treat glioblastomas when surgery is deemed unsafe or is not recommended for another reason. Radiation therapy may be used alone, with chemotherapy or with targeted therapies.

Chemotherapy: Several chemotherapy drugs taken orally or intravenously are available to manage the symptoms of glioblastoma. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are typically the recommended course of treatment for nearly all glioblastomas. Following surgery, carmustine wafers may also be implanted. After a surgeon operates to remove the cancerous tissue in the brain, up to eight dime-sized wafers are implanted in the space where the tumor was. Over the next few weeks, the wafers slowly dissolve while filling surrounding cells with medication. The goal is to kill tumor cells left behind after surgery. Chemotherapy along with Optune has been approved for adjuvant therapy once radiation is complete.

Targeted therapy: are medicines that target the parts of cancer cells that make them unlike normal cells. These new drugs are used more often to treat brain tumors than standard chemotherapy. Targeted therapy can help when other treatments are not working as well. They can also have less-severe side effects than standard chemotherapy medicine.

Homeopathy Treatment for Glioblastoma Multiforme

Glioblastoma can be difficult to treat because the tumors contain so many different types of cells. Some cells may respond well to certain therapies, while others may not be affected at all. This is why the treatment plan for glioblastoma may combine several approaches.

At Welling Homeopathy Clinics, we have a specially formulated Homeopathy treatment for Glioblastoma Multiforme which can halt the progress of cancer. That is the reason we suggest to start our Homeopathy treatment as soon as the diagnosis is made or soon after the chemo or radiation for Glioblastoma is completed.
