There is something peddled by a Dr. Banerji in India - pills of ruta 6 and calcium phosphate.
Personally I think that while natural supplements can help against brain tumours, homeopathy is just hocus pocus. If you dilute something till it is not there - well, it's not there. Banerji claims longer life as a result, but it is has not been scientifically assessed. At least it doesn't cost much and won't do any harm, unlike some of the other cancer treatment scams.

There are a lot of messages on this board under the topic Information or feedback on the "Banerji Protocol" PRASANTA BANERJI HOMEOPATHIC RESEARCH FOUNDATION
We have found this protocol to be very helpful for my wife's Oligodendroglioma; it's very inexpensive and there is no contra-indication for its use along with chemo agents, surgery or radiation. See my posts in above topic group.
With due respect to StanleyT, Dr. Banerji does not "peddle" this remedy.
He and his son operate a hospital in India where they treat thousands of patients. His consultation with me by email was immediate and free - he never offered to sell me the remedies or suggested any donation. I have heard the same from many others (except not always the immediate part). The remedies themselves can be purchased at many natural food stores. We get ours from 800-homeopathy.com - a several months' supply costs about $30 (compared with $5500 a month for Temodar). None of that money goes to Dr. Banerji, so if he's a scam artist he's not very good at it.
There are some scientific studies that support Dr. Banerji's claims, google Ruta and International Journal of Oncology or search NIH databases. Bottom line, it seems to have worked well in concert with Western medical treatments for us, and there is no downside since it does no harm and costs about the same as I spend each month on craft beer (and my wife doesn't drink beer).
With respect to ourVictory - that stuff is NOT homeopathy. Scorpion venom, really???
