Neurofibroma or Neurofibromatosis (NF) or Von Recklinghausen's Disease

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment let us first discuss the conventional or allopathic treatment available.

Allopathic / conventional treatment of neurofibroma or neurofibromatosis (NF) or von Recklinghausen's disease involves the surgical removal of the tumors but the tumors have a tendency to come back. For symptoms like café au lait spots no treatment is given. Radiation therapy (localized treatment of tumors with targeted x-ray beams) may also be needed.

Sometimes the tumors are in such a place that they cannot be removed surgically. Tumors that cause pain or loss of function are removed on an individual basis.

In contrast homeopathy treatment can save you from the surgeon’s knife and the other symptoms of the disease can effectively be taken care of with medicines.

Homoeopathy is not against surgery but it often minimizes the use of this painful and terrifying procedure.

Diseased tissue (tumors) is not the cause of disease and its removal from the body will not prevent the recurrence of the disease after the surgery. Homeopathy treats the cause and not the effect. With proper treatment not only diseased tissue will be healthy but the recurrences can be prevented as the vitality is raised by the remedies.

The tumors start regressing in size with proper treatment. Also the other skin symptoms, the spinal symptoms, freckles and so on can be managed easily with the medicines.

Homeopathic treatment can be started on seeing the early signs of the disease like café au lait spots and its progress can be stopped in the beginning only.

Every family has typical "weak spots" in the health - some families have history of heart diseases, some of cancer, some of hormonal disorders, some of arthritis and so on. All these weaknesses are written down as potential in the genes, especially if both parents of the person have the same health disorders already expressed, or in their family health history. Chronic diseases which are repeated within the family are so often very difficult to solve, because people who carry them usually BELIEVE that inherited disorders are not possible to heal, consciously or subconsciously. For all such false believes the answer is homeopathic treatment. Medicines can take care of the predisposition to a disease. Remedies strengthen the body to counter hereditary problems.

I have found in my clinical experience that homeopathic medicines often replace the conventional drugs and eliminate the need for heroic procedures. Ideally, homeopathy doctors are taking the best of the natural science to create a kind of care that will be commonplace in future.

There are 9 medicines which give relief in neurofibroma or neurofibromatosis (NF) or von Recklinghausen's disease. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the physician. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are designer made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.

What is neurofibroma or neurofibromatosis (NF) or Von Recklinghausen's disease

A neurofibroma or neurofibromatosis or Von Recklinghausen's Disease is a benign nerve sheath tumor in the peripheral nervous system. Usually found in individuals with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), a genetically-inherited disease.

It is a genetic disease in which patients develop multiple soft tumors (neurofibromas). These tumors occur under the skin and throughout the nervous system.

In this disease, a genetic defect causes these neural crest cells (neural crest cells are primitive cells which exist during fetal development) to develop abnormally. This results in numerous tumors and malformations of the nerves, bones, and skin.

Neurofibromatosis occurs in about one of every 4,000 births. Two types of NF exist, NF-1 (90% of all cases), and NF-2 (10% of all cases).


Both forms of neurofibroma or neurofibromatosis are caused by a defective gene. NF-1 is due to a defect on chromosome 17; NF-2 results from a defect on chromosome 22. Both of these disorders are inherited in a dominant fashion. This means that anybody who receives just one defective gene will have the disease.

It is interesting to note that only about half of all cases show a family history of the disease. The other cases occur because a specific gene spontaneously changes its structure (mutates). A person with this type of spontaneous mutation can then pass that gene onto his or her offspring. There is a 50% chance that a parent with neurofibroma or neurofibromatosis will pass the gene on to a child.

Symptoms & diagnosis

To be given the diagnosis of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), an individual must have at least two of the following features. Some people with NF1 have only two, while others can have several of these features:

  • Six or more cafe-au-lait spots, or coffee-colored birthmarks, each measuring over an inch in adults (1/4 inch in children).
  • Two of more benign skin tumors called neurofibromas or one diffuse tumor of the soft tissue called a plexiform neurofibroma.
  • Freckles under the arm or in the groin region.
  • A tumor of the nerve to the eye called an optic glioma.
  • Two or more spots on the iris of the eye called Lisch nodules.
  • A problem of one of the bones such as bowing of a leg, with or without a fracture.
  • A parent, brother, sister, or child with NF1.

Individuals with (NF2) have fewer outward signs of the condition than individuals with NF1. To be given the diagnosis of NF2, an individual must have the following features:

Benign tumors on both sides of the head involving the nerves for hearing and balance, called acoustic neuromas or vestibular schwannomas


Family history of NF2 (a first-degree relative, i.e. mother, father, brother, sister, or child, with NF2) AND one of the following:

  • An acoustic neuroma or vestibular schwannoma on one side of the head before the age of 30, or
  • Any two of the following : meningioma, glioma, schwannoma, juvenile posterior subcapsular lenticular opacities / juvenile cortical cataract.

*I have neurofibromatosis; the tumors are all above my breast. Most of them are on the throat below the ear, some on the face, behind the ears. There are some on both hands between the wrist and the elbow. They are all soft to touch. My father had 2 or 3 but I have much more. They first started appearing about 20 years ago. Don't remember exactly since initially ignored it completely.

Completed 2 years taking homeopathy medicines from Dr. Batras clinic. No improvement. Few tumors have come even during treatment. Doctor there says this is genetic. Cannot be cured. Only controlled. I also suffer from frequent urinary tract infections. This also started at least 15 or 20 years ago. When an attack comes, I go to a doctor who will prescribe an antibiotic and after taking it for 10 days it will stop. Then it will happen again after some time. The sysmptoms are like this - I will get a burning sensation when I pass urine. There will be pus like white discharge along with the urine. When the infection sets in there will be high fever also.

After 4 months of treatment : I started on Packet C last week and thanks for the reminder to send the feedback on the pouch. The small tumors seem to be shrinking but have not gone completely. The big ones stay as they were. There has been no increase in number or size of tumors since I started your treatment. UTI (urinary tract infection) hasn't recurred.

I am 30 year old male. I have neurofibromatosis. I had a tumor in my lower back near the spine and got it removed by surgery and undergone radiation therapy. My daughter is 3 years old and she was born with some birthmarks at many places on her body. But as she grows many new dark spots occur in her skin. Since I have NF will she also have NF. Can we cure it before it get any worse can we stop the occurrence of any lumps or tumors. Can we stop or control at the early stage? She doesn't have any lumps now. Can we prevent them from coming? Please reply. Thank you

Hi, I am a dad of a six year old girl child who has been diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis. We have been told by the doctor that there is no treatment as such for this disorder. There are small tumors under the skin spread all over her body just like a small lumps (4-6mm). She doesnt complain of any pain as such. Both me and my wife are totally devastated and have been left clueless as to how we should treat her and make her alright. She is a sweet and loving child and we cant bear this situation. I saw your email contact while browsing the net and thought if you can guide us regarding the treatment. Please reply as we are very much worried and concerned about this.
