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.

Dog Cancer Omega 3 Fish Oil

I give Lucy much more fat than anyone would think to give. She gets at least 8-10gram per day. 8 fish pills (4 at each meal) plus 1 tablespoon of Flax on Cottage Cheese which might be about 2grams.

Here some quotes around the web:

"Fish oil at 1000 mg per 20 lbs of dog each day is a recommended minimum dosage supplement for dogs with cancer"

"This is in addition to the Flax oil in the cottage cheese."

Not only do dogs have metabolism differences with carbohydrates, but they also
show abnormalities in lipid metabolism. These abnormalities contribute to
immune suppression. Malignant cells cannot use lipids for energy, so Dr. Ogilvie
suggests adding much more fat to a dogs diet, and in particular, the essential
fatty acid, Omega-3. He not only states that Omega-3 fatty acids will help a dog
with energy, but can actually help stop tumor growth.
Foods rich in Omega-3 include Flaxseed Oil, salmon and other cold water fishes.
He does suggest to limit the amount of Omega-6 fatty acids, as it has proven in
his tests that these oils can cause cancer to grow faster. Those oils would
include GLA's, or primrose oils, borage oil and black current oil."

"Many vets will recommend Hill’s n/d for cancer patients because it is clinically proven to improve outcomes, although the clinical results are only confirmed for lymphoma, nasal and oral tumors. Hill’s n/d is a prescription diet available through any veterinarian. It has what is thought to be an optimal ratio of proteins (37%), carbs (21%) and fats (32%) as well as additional Omega 3 Fatty Acids in the form of fish oil (min 7%) and an amino acid called Arginine (3%).( I GIVE 900mg of that)

There are some drawbacks to Hill’s n/d though, that lead many pet guardians to choose other options. First, it is a relatively expensive diet, especially for larger breeds. Secondly, it only comes in canned formula because of its high fat content. As a result, some picky eaters may not like the taste of it if they have been raised on kibble all their lives. Third, and most importantly to those who wish to feed their dog as naturally as possible, the quality of the ingredients in n/d are not ideal, as animal by-products are used to produce this food. "

A Vet blog:
"If your loved dog has a cancer at this time, you want to get as much omega 3 in him or her as possible. Start slowly and work your way up to large amounts over about 2 weeks to avoid an upset stomach. Give with food. For a dog about 60 lbs, you want about 18 grams of good quality fish oil containing omega 3′s. This usually means about 15-20 of the typical capsules daily, which is a large amount! For double strength caps, halve the dose. Adjust up or down for the size of your dog. The capsules can be popped and the oil mixed in food if your dog resists eating the capsules by themselves. Watch for digestive upset (vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite), and if so, stop and then later start with lower doses increased more slowly.
If your loved dog is not diagnosed with cancer and is on typical commercial food, I would have you begin an omega 3 fatty acid supplement at lower doses than those dogs with cancer. For a 60 lb dog, my opinion is a standard supplemental dose of roughly 4-6 grams of omega 3-containing capsules daily. Remember to start with low doses than work up over 2 weeks. "
