Not just Holistic, but how to use E: All of the Above!

I made this blog because I did tons of research on success stories and research worldwide and used it on my dog with nasal cancer named Lucy. So, now my hobby is molecular biology. The treatment uses combination of health store supplements, some prescription meds, diet changes, and specific Ayurvedic and Chinese medicinal herbs. I just wanted her to have a better quality of life. I thought this combination of E: All the Above (except no radiation or chemo and surgery for this cancer was not an option) would help that for sure, but it actually put her bleeding nasal cancer in remission!
My approach to cancer is about treating the whole animals biologic system. But I do hate the word 'Holistic'. Sounds like hoo hoo. This is science based, research based data and results of using active herbal compounds that happen to be readily available and common. Some call it Nutriceuticals. Others may call it Orthomolecular cancer therapy. Or Cancer Immunotherapy.
-Slow cancer cell reproduction
-Make cancer cells become easier targets for the immune system
-Kill the cancer cells
-Rid the cancer cells
-Remove the toxins it produces
- Stimulate and Modulate the immune system
-Control secondary symptoms like bleeding, infection, inflammation, mucous, appetite, or pain for a better feeling animal
-Working with your vet for exams and prescriptions that are sometimes needed when conditions are acute.
Just by using a multi-modal treatment approach that is as diverse in attack as possible. Both conventional and natural.
The body conditions that allowed it to develop in the first place must be corrected. If caught early enough, like with Lucy, this ongoing maintenance correctional treatment is all that was required at this point to achieve, so far, more than 10 TIMES the life expectancy given (more than 60 months) after diagnosis WITH remission. I did not use radiation or chemotherapy or surgery.
I hope this cancer research can help your dog as well.

My Lucy
In Loving Memory my Lucy December 2016
CURRENT STATUS - It was for more than 5 YEARS after Lucy was diagnosed by biopsy in March 2011 with nasal cancer that she lived. And she was in remission for 4 of 5 years using no radiation or chemo! Now multiply that by 7 to be 35 years extended!! She was 12.5 years old - equivalent to almost 90 human years old. She ended her watch December 1, 2016. I miss her so much.

March 31st 2011 - The Diagnosis

After seeing Lucy's nose bleed just a little every few weeks for the last few months I brought her to the vet. I always thought it was just rough play or her chewing on logs. Yes, logs. She is a large lab.

I researched on the internet what it might be. Foxtail maybe, Aspergillus fungal Infection, injury (but not likely due to duration of nose bleeds over 3 or more months, or.... cancer.

The vet couldn't find anything visually with a scope (dog's noses don't allow for much inspection due to the complex nature of their sinuses so they can smell a molecule) and the x-ray showed some vague cloudiness. X-rays are not good at showing soft tissue. A CT costs alot, an MRI even more and many vets don't have anything other than x-ray. So they had to keep her under a general anesthesia and do a biopsy as far in the nose as they could go and send to a lab to find out if some kind of infection or something worse. The nose bleeds also got worse fast. Now I noticed the bleeding was mostly on one side. Not gonna think about it.

Cancer. No NO NO NO NO! You think anyway. Over and over waiting for a diagnosis that you can live with. So... they call a few days later.
Canine Adenocarcinoma. Yes, they are sure. Usually dogs only live 4-5 months on average with no treatment. Given referral to vetinary oncologist to go over options. Radiation. Chemo. For my good old dog Lucy.

So, I am a 48 year old man who cries now in the bathroom a few times a day over this. She is always with me. She is only 7 years old. C'mon God.
