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.

Homeopathic Cancer Treatment without Side Effects?

Effective Cancer Treatment without Side Effects?

Although in conventional medicine chemotherapies are used to treat patients with malignancies, adverse effects are common, and damage to normal cells is a widespread problem. Chemotherapy agents can do serious damage to the cells of the bone marrow that play an important role in blood-formation. In their search for potential alternative agents that can kill cancer cells without adverse effects on normal cells, scientists with the Departments of Cancer Biology and Laboratory Medicine at the University Of Texas Department of Molecular Genetics, at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, in Houston, Texas, have turned to evaluating homeopathic drugs. These researchers believe they may have found just such an agent in a common homeopathic remedy, Ruta graveolens.57

They tried the drug Ruta graveolens 6C along with Ca3(PO4)2 (calcium phosphate) in the 3X potency in vitro and in vivo. Of 15 patients, 6 of 7 glioma patients showed complete regression of tumors. The results of both in vivo and in vitro experiments showed that the drug induced “survival-signaling pathways in normal lymphocytes and death-signaling pathways in brain cancer cells” and that “telomere erosion initiated cancer cell death and mitotic catastrophic events completed the process.” The authors proposed that Ruta graveolens in combination with calcium phosphate could be used as an effective treatment for brain cancers, particularly gliomas.

Conventional cancer treatment can harm the DNA, and has the potential to cause mutations, tumors and neoplasms. Homeopathic cancer drugs, in the customary doses, apparently do not have these harmful effects. One study, conducted at the Laboratorio de Citogenetica Humana, Centro de Ciencias Biologicas, Universidade Federal do Para, Belem, PA, in Brazil, evaluated the genotoxic effects of a homeopathic combination treatment labeling it the Canova Method (CM).58 CM is a homeopathic medicine developed for the treatment of patients with cancer and for pathologies that involve a depressed immune system, such as AIDS. This product is composed of homeopathic dilutions of Aconitum napellus, Arsenicum album, Bryonia alba, Lachesis mutus and Thuja occidentalis. According to the author of the study, it stimulates the immune system by activating and accelerating the activity of macrophages and lymphocytes. Activated macrophages stimulate the lymphocytes so they will increase their cytotoxic action in response to tumoral growth or infection.

The study evaluated the genotoxic effects induced in human lymphocytes treated with this homeopathic medication in vitro. The team scored structural and numerical chromosomal aberrations for the assessment of induced genotoxic effects, while evaluating possible variations in the mitotic index as a monitor for induced cellular toxicity. Treatments with CM did not affect mitotic indexes, nor did they provoke chromosomal aberrations, when compared with untreated controls. There was no cytotoxicity or genotoxicity at the chromosomal level.

Quote from
"Lachesis Mutus is a product that most people have never heard of. It is incredible for helping me to fight infection and to improve my circulation. My circulation in my legs is painful at times and this product does wonders for
knocking the pain and bringing absolute relief. I breathe easier with it. It has many benefits. I use 5 of these very little pills several times during the day. It is just amazing for relieving inflammation. It has a variety of uses that people can use it for. Some people use it for aiding menopausal hot flashes, aiding inflammation like lupus or fibromyalgia, headaches, circulation problems of various types, and just pain in the hands from typing all day. It is just a very soothing product when the body is hurting anywhere. I am thrilled that it costs so little and does so very much. Highly recommended." 

My comments....

The venom from the bushmaster snake is called Lachesis Mutus.  WHA!
  • 30c is 10X30 which is a 10 with 30 zeros. Now that is a very small amount of the original "stuff".
    So small you would have to take some where around a swimming pool full of the pills to get even one atom of the original "stuff".

    Description I found in multiple sites:

    "Lachesis mutus is a homeopathic remedy that affects the blood and central nervous system. It is made from a very dilute solution of the poisonous venom of the bushmaster snake. The most important effect of Lachesis mutus is its blood-thinning, or anti-coagulant, function. This action enhances blood flow and facilitates the healing process by hastening the removal of toxins from the blood. Lachesis mutus is used as a homeopathic treatment for many bleeding disorders--including rectal bleeding, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, prolonged menstrual periods--and to relieve depression, palpitations, migraines and other throbbing headaches, tonsillitis, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, poor circulation, cold extremities, a swollen or inflamed tongue, and all types of skin ulcers and wounds. It is also sometimes used to ease menopausal symptoms."

    My opinion?
    So, it might help healing, but since it is anti-coagulant I really feel that you must take it with Yun Nan Bai Yao anti bleeding herbs if you have bleeding tumors. Yes, even though it's a homeopathic theory. Read below about homeopathy. Why risk it.

    This text below is from a dog bone cancer site:

    What is Homeopathy?
    Homeopathic physicians seek to cure their patients on physical, mental, and emotional levels, and each treatment is tailored to a patient’s individual needs. Homeopathy is generally safe, as it uses medicines in extremely diluted quantities, and there are usually minimal side effects. Its non toxicity makes some consider it a good choice for the treatment of children and pets.
    Homeopathic medicine is based on a “Principle of Similars,” or “like cures like” philosophy. This means that illnesses can be cured by small doses of a natural substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people. For example, tiny doses of one plant medicine that causes vomiting in a healthy person, may actually cure vomiting in a sick person.

    Selecting Homeopathic Pain Remedies
    Here are a few of my favorite pain remedies. I grab the first one that seems to “fit” best based on what the pet is acting like. This is where you as the owner is of such importance! You know your pet best and homeopathics rewards that. The better you know your pup, the better you are at choosing a remedy since the emotional level that the pet is on is as important as the physical.

    • 30C is usually the potency or strength I grab, but a 30X is fine too.
    • When dosing, if no change with 3 doses, I switch remedies.
    • Acute Pain Symptoms: I give 1 dose every 15 minutes for 3 total doses.
    • Chronic Conditions: For those that are not as severe on the pet, I do 1 dose, 3 times per day over a 24 hour period. If that seems to help, I dose only as needed from there. This may be only once per day or even less often. The pet will tell you.
    • Homeopathic remedies should be given AWAY from food. You can mix them with Distilled water and syringe onto the gums if that’s easier.
