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.

Artemsisin - see wormwood and article in blog  I USE THIS

Astragalus - boosts immune system, anti-inflammatory properties

Burdock Root - removes toxins from body, blood cleanser, stimulates bone marrow, antioxidant

Cat's Claw - shrinks tumors, immune stimulating properties, anti-inflammatory properties I USE THIS

Charparral - a desert plant used to treat tumors

Dandelion - provides nutrients, supports liver function

Echinacea - immune boosting properties, raise white blood cell counts, stimulates lymphatic system

Essiac - an herbal formula containing several herbs, useful in fighting certain cancers. I USE THIS

Flax - cancer fighting chemicals, antioxidant, and antiangiogenesis properties I USE THIS FLAX OIL MIXED WITH COTTAGE CHEESE AS IN BUDWIG DIET

Garlic- antioxidant properties, stimulates white blood cells in bone marrow, inhibits growth of cancer

Ginseng - antioxidant properties, protects against cancer formation, Red ginseng stimulates natural killer cell function,
inhibit tumor invasion, and has antiangiogenesis properties. I USE RED GINSENG AND YU NAN BAI YAO

Goldenseal - potent anti cancer properties, anti-inflammatory, beneficial for digestive tract

Hawthorn - antioxidant properties, useful for cardiac side effects from some chemotherapy drugs (doxorubicin)

Hoxsey - an herbal formula containing several herbs, may be useful in fighting certain cancers

Licorice Root -  anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, stimulates immune system by enhancing interferon and
T cell production.  "Natures cortisone".  I USE THIS

Marshmallow - antibacterial and immune-stimulating properties

Milk Thistle - protects liver, reduces toxicity from chemotherapy  I USE THIS

Mistletoe -  extract Iscador is a cancer therapy, stimulates immune system, encourages cell death (apoptosis),  and
possesses anti-tumor and anti-metastatic properties.

Oregon Grape - alternative to goldenseal, stimulates white blood production from the bone marrow, anti-cancer
properties, supports liver function  I USE THIS

Red Clover - contains nutrients, blood cleanser, can be applied directly to skin cancers

Saw Palmetto - said to help with prostate cancer in dogs

Turmeric - inhibits the growth of cancer, induces cancer cell death, antioxidant, and stimulates immune system

Wormwood -  (active compound is artemisinin) controls infections, selective killing of cancer cells when
administered with supplemental iron. I USE THIS

Yellow Dock - cleansing herb that stimulates liver function, high iron content
Laboratory studies are expanding the clinical knowledge that is already documented in traditional texts. The herbs that are traditionally used for anti-cancer treatment and that are anti-angiogenic through multiple interdependent processes (including effects on gene expression, signal processing, and enzyme activities) include Artemisia annua (Chinese wormwood), Viscum album (European mistletoe), Curcuma longa (curcumin), Scutellaria baicalensis (Chinese skullcap), resveratrol and proanthocyanidin (grape seed extract), Magnolia officinalis (Chinese magnolia tree), Camellia sinensis (green tea), Ginkgo biloba, quercetin, Poria cocos, Zingiber officinalis (ginger), Panax ginseng, Rabdosia rubescens hora (Rabdosia), and Chinese destagnation herbs. Natural health products target molecular pathways other than angiogenesis, including epidermal growth factor receptor, the HER2/neu gene, the cyclo-oxygenase-2 enzyme, the nuclear factor kappa-B transcription factor, the protein kinases, the Bcl-2 protein, and coagulation pathways. 
Here is an updated blog page on the herbs I AM USING AND HAVING RESULTS WITH and the dosages for my 90 pound lab.
