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.

Why isn’t AAFCO approved status alone enough to trust?

Why isn’t Association of Feed Control Officials AAFCO approved dog food status alone enough to trust for our dog foods?

"In a perfect world, AAFCO approved status on our dog foods guarantees a product meets your animal companion’s minimum nutrient needs. In reality, AAFCO claims fall into the honor system. No approval process exists to test acceptability of ingredients or to check the accuracy of nutrient claims. Furthermore, no enforcement body exists to punish companies knowingly using moldy or diseased products or misleading consumers with nutrient claims. Hypothetically, a morally defunct pet food company may legitimately utilize a three week old, tumor laden, animal carcass found rotting in a pool of pesticides, turn it into a bag of fat sprayed, crunchy, dry profit, and market the food as natural, premium, or gourmet. "


Items that pass Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) guidelines for dog food

AAFCO Approval
The Dog food industry is primarly self-regulating. AAFCO provides guidence, but the list of allowable food materials is shocking. The following is a example of some of the ingrediants AAFCO permints for use in pet foods:
• Dehydrated garbage
• Undried processed animal waste products
• Polyethylene roughage replacement (plastic)
• Hydrolyzed poultry feathers
• Hydrolyzed hair
• Hydrolyzed leather meal
• Poultry hatchery by-product
• Meat meal tankage
• Peanut hulls
• Ground almond shells

more bleh.

Don't feed your dog junk like Alpo, Beneful, or Hills. Don't let the vets sell you the pricey Hills. It's junk. They make so much money on those foods and they are just not that well made. Sure better than Ol' Roy but c'mon people in charge of our pets health! Read the labels. You do for your own food! Actually, what I am thinking. As long as you don't buy the cheapest junk at the grocery store (PLEASE don't buy dog food there, goto your local pet store and talk with the help), all the labels look good. What to do? Use Grain Free with highest protein level you can find. Even the highest protein ones are not that high though. The carb levels (still created because grain free doesn't mean carb free) are still high due to potatoes being used, sweet potato is better but still kinda high carb FOR A CARNIVORE.

“The prevalence of cancer and autoimmune related diseases in our pets is directly correlated to the processed foods we are feeding them. We are literally starving them to death of nutrients while stuffing them to the point of obesity with garbage.”
- Dr. Denise Miller, DVM and author of What's Wrong With our Pets?

"In my practice, the Stella & Chewy’s brand raw diet fills a special niche. Unfortunately, cancer in our pet companions is far too prevalent. I am often asked to recommend a meat-based diet that is safe for an immune-suppressed patient. Pets receiving chemotherapy or steroid treatment for allergies can utilize Stella & Chewy’s Certified Pathogen Safe food. I have appreciated the availability of the unique Duck Duck Goose formula for “cooling” my patients with hot constitutions or inflammatory disorders."

Here is their example mentioned above. I know, lots of money...

I am still and so should you, research raw dog foods and cancer in dogs.
Sure, raw sounds good and right for our dogs, but in practice can be time consuming, gross, and well, unless you, um, kill and disassemble this 'prey' yourselves, the bacteria count from factory farm and s-houses is VERY high. I have read more than once that 20% to up to 50% of ground turkey is teaming with Salmonella. Certainly not good for immune compromised dogs with cancer. I just pan fry ground turkey or ground chicken from a frozen chub thawed (this stuff is cheap) with some garlic and give a part of a cup on my dogs dry food. Or a cooked egg on top. 
 Let me know and comment.
