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.

Prednisone and Cancer Uses

Vet Clinic Text

"Steroids, such as prednisone or prednisolone, can also be used to decrease
inflammation in the nose. For these medications, we start with high doses of the
medication for a short period to try to knock down the inflammation. It tends to work very well. If your dog
shows signs of improvement with the medication, we then slowly decrease the
dose of this medication as much as your dog tolerates. The exact taper is
dependent on how your dog is doing, but as long as your dog’s symptoms remain
improved, we usually decrease the dose by 25% every 2-3 weeks. Some dogs are
able to be completely weaned off of the steroids. Some dogs with cancer may require long-term
low levels of steroids. If this is the case, we try to keep the dose of the
medication as low as possible to hold back your dog’s symptoms. Steroids can
have several side effects. At higher doses, they will cause your dogs to urinate
and drink excessively. It is very important to keep plenty of water available at all
times. High dose will likely make your dog feel hungry but you do not need to
feed him or her more food than normal. Large breed dogs can sometimes
develop hind end weakness while on steroids. If you notice hind end weakness,
it is important to tell your veterinarian so that we can try to taper the medication
faster. Rarely, steroids can cause ulceration in the gastrointestinal tract, which
may lead to vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, blood in the stool, or black
tar-like stool. If you notice any of these symptoms it is important to notify your
veterinarian. Steroids cannot be stopped abruptly as a life-threatening reaction
(addisonian crisis) may result. Therefore, the dose of these medications should
not be changed except under the supervision of a veterinarian."

Sometimes you can just use the bursts of prednisone just when things are bad. Long term every single day use depresses the immune system. Something you don't want. Plus they need to pee alot. And while you will be glad they are eating again, they will bug you about eating.
