Medicine and Alternatives or Medicine and Complements?

One of those times when modern medicine fails, and quacks take up the slack.

As noted here, a young man is in danger because he fears the results of modern medicine. What immediately caught my attention was his reasoning:

After three months of chemotherapy last year made him nauseated and weak, Abraham rejected doctors' recommendations to go through a second round when he learned early this year that his Hodgkin's disease, a cancer of the lymph nodes, was active again.

Any third-rate homeopath knows the answer to his problem: Cadmium Sulphate, 6X is fine but I prefer 30C, 4 pills dissolved in a cup of water and given to him after the chemotherapy session and as needed thereafter. Result: nausea and weakness substantially reduced. Robin Murphy pointed this out years ago.

So what have I got here? A note that medicine is not a divisible field, and that people should look at all of it as they prescribe. I am sure the clinic in Mexico does its best. But chemotherapy works well for Hodgkin's Disease. Now the question becomes how to properly deal with the chemotherapy. And the answer is known.
