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.

What Really is Holistic Dog Food?

Holistic Dog Foods for Dog Cancer Diets

This is a definition I found.

"Holistic foods use the highest quality, "human-grade" ingredients and never any artificial colors or chemical preservatives. Additionally, holistic foods never contain cheap fillers such as corn, wheat, soy, glutens or animal by-products. These fillers are hard to digest, contain little nutritional value and are known to cause health problems in dogs and cats. "

But very wary when you see this word on ' Holistic Dog Foods '.

 ALWAYS read the ingredients. And always get Grain Free versions. And price has nothing to do with anything. Don't let a pretty foil bag fool you into buying either very expensive dog food or not that great a dog food. I really think the pet food industry is actually not that well regulated with quality or terms usage.

And a reminder on grain free...
If you have dogs with uncontrollable itching and there's no fleas involved, it's definitely the food you're feeding him/her. Do some research and you'll find that grain based kibble can cause itchiness, hot spots, yeast infections, and reoccurring ear infections. Grain-free kibble is the best way to go. It's worth a little extra money to avoid vet costs.
Another reminder, just because it's grain free doesn't make it low carb. Just about every grain free, even though it is higher protein and less carb than the usual suspects, doesn't make it low carb. Dogs need high protein, medium fat and low carb. They were built this way....carnivores...
There is a bacteria colony that lives where the stomach dumps into the small intestine and this bacteria has a tendency to foam when it comes into contact with grain or white potato. This can cause acid indigestion or burping, or even cause the dog to throw up a bit. Try switching to a raw*, raw*/kibble mix or a kibble that is grain and white potato free to see if it clears up.

*Dogs with cancer should not have raw foods due to their compromised immune system.
