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.

AntiAngiogenesis Meloxicam Peroxicam Navy Protocol

All cancerous tumors, for example, release angiogenic growth factor proteins that stimulate blood vessels to grow into the tumor, providing it with oxygen and nutrients. Antiangiogenic therapies literally starve the tumor of its blood supply by interfering with this process. A new class of cancer treatments that block angiogenesis are now approved and available to treat cancers of the colon, kidney, lung, breast, liver, brain, and thyroid, as well as multiple myeloma, bone gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and SEGA tumors. Some older drugs have been rediscovered to block angiogenesis, as well. These are being used to treatment angiogenesis-dependent conditions, such as hemangiomas, colon polyps, and precancerous skin lesions.

This is a major leap forward for veterinary medicine,” said Dr. William Li, President and Medical Director of the Angiogenesis Foundation. “Eighty percent of dog cancers are identical to their human counterparts, so it makes complete sense that the antiangiogenic treatment approach that works in human cancers would also help dogs.” 
The Angiogenesis Foundation pioneered the first use of antiangiogenic therapies in canine cancers in 2000. Foundation researchers, working with veterinarians, developed a cocktail of human drugs suitable for dogs. Named the ‘Navy Protocol’ after a Golden Retriever that first received the treatment, the cocktail has been used to treat more than 600 dogs representing 32 breeds with 26 advanced tumor types.  Since 1995, the Foundation has been educating veterinarians and pet owners about the principles of angiogenesis and its promise for conquering cancer in dogs and other animals.
"We have tested the tumor size with sonography.  It does appear tumors get a little smaller with piroxicam," indicates Dr. Barton.  "There may be some chemotherapeutic benefit, but we're not particularly impressed with tumor shrinkage."  She explains that improvement may be due to reduced edema and reduced inflammation rather that true tumor reduction.
"We feel like piroxicam gives comparable results to those we get with cisplatin chemotherapy or radiation," say Barton.  The advantage, Dr. Barton repeats, is:  "the dogs feel good, and they get to stay at home. "  Disadvantages Barton ascribes to the common cisplatin chemotherapy include severe nausea, vomiting and kidney toxicity.  And with radiation treatment, dogs must be hospitalized four to five weeks for the 12 to 15 treatments, according to Barton.
Purdue also compared its piroxicam results to similar cases treated with cisplatin, the currently used chemotherapy in canine transitional cell carcinoma.  The tumor response and survival date of the two drugs were similar, but the toxicity of piroxicam treatment was much less that that of cisplatin treatment, according to Purdue.

Piroxicam (Feldene) therapy is being used with good results in treatment of some canine malignancies.  Recent suggested regimen:  0.3 mg/kg piroxicam every 48 hours.  And give with Pepcid keep GI problems down *according to some vet texts.  Talk to your vet about this. Meloxicam is newer and has less GI problems. These are human drugs too, so have your vet write the script for you to take to your pharmacy. It will be much cheaper. Vets make a HUGE markup on Rx.
