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.

How to get your Vet or Doctor to give you Low Dose Naltrexone

Before you visit your doctor or vet…
1.  Practice saying “Low Dose Naltrexone” out loud.   This might sound silly, but it can
be a tongue twister, and you don’t want to stumble over your words when you say it
to your doctor.

2.  Locate a compounding pharmacy.   Oddly, this was one of my doctor’s objections:  
“What a pain; you have to find a compounding pharmacy to do this.”   But I'd done my
homework, and showed her my list of pharmacies, which included a local
compounding pharmacy.   (Don’t know how to find one?  Call your local drug store
and ask for the name of the nearest compounding pharmacy.)

3.  Get a nice new manilla folder.

4.  Click here for
the LDN FAQs -- Frequently-Asked Questions about LDN  -- print
out this file and put it in the manila folder.  This has been assembled many different
sources.   It is streamlined  and factual, without too much medical terminology.  (Some
doctors don’t like patients who use medical jargon.)  Claims of LDN’s effectiveness
are deliberately cautious and unemotional.   Your doctor doesn’t want to hear the
words “miracle drug.”   Print out LDN and Cancer info too also.

5.  Familiarize yourself with everything in the FAQ's.  You don't want to be a know-it-
all, but you should be ready to answer your doctor’s questions, or at least know where
to find the answers.

Don’t include any other material in the Folder.  These pages are just enough for a busy
doctor to absorb during a short appointment.   Most doctors will recoil from a big
stack of paper.


During the Visit with Your Doctor...
1.  Play it cool.  Don’t say that you think LDN is a miracle drug.   Don’t volunteer a lot
of information at first.  Let your doctor be the smart one.   Nod a lot.  

2.   Don't complain about the symptoms too much.   A doctor is more likely to prescribe an
“experimental” drug if he thinks your health is not in immediate jeopardy.

3.  Keep in mind that many many many doctors are simply unaware of Low Dose Naltrexone.  Low Dose is the key words here.

4.  Present the material in the Doctor’s Folder a little bit at a time.  How should you do
that?  Keep reading…


Your doctor and the internet…
How does your doctor feel about patients who do medical research on the internet?   
Some doctors think it’s great.  MANY Others are infuriated by it.  If your doctor disapproves
of it, tread very softly.  If your doctor says something like “All those people are
crazies,” don’t get defensive.  Just shrug and say something like, “Yeah, that’s for
sure, there really is some out there wild stuff… but I did find some interesting well researched stuff, and
I wanted your opinion about it.”

Avoid using the word “internet.”  Use the words “information” and “research” instead.  
If your doctor asks you a question you can’t answer, just say, “I don’t know, but I
can find out for you.”


Addressing your doctor’s objections ...
If your doctor objects to LDN, don’t panic.  Ask (in a friendly, curious way) what his
objections are.   Here’s what he might say:

    “It’s too experimental.”   Or, “It’s not FDA approved.”  

You can point out that standard dose Naltrexone (at the higher 50mg dose) has had FDA approval for
a long time, and guide your doctor to the Q&A section that discusses FDA approval.  And your giving in a very low dose.

    “I just don’t know enough about it.”  

All doctors are uncomfortable admitting they don’t know something, especially to a
  This might be a good time to back off, give your doctor the folder, and ask
her to look it over at her convenience.  Suggest this in a way that indicates that you’re
not trying to prove your case, you value your doctor’s opinion, and you’re willing to



  YOU WILL NEED TO TALK YOUR VET INTO THIS ONE....  READ LINK AND PRINT OUT ALL 3 ARTICLES FOR VET.  They will not understand why this med is used in this manner at all unless you educate them. Gently...
 Lucy gets 2ml to 3ml (this is the most common dose no matter weight unless very small dog - human normal dosages start at 50mg/ml so this is, well, low dosing. This is all that is needed to boost immune system) of LDN Low Dose Naltrexone prescription from measured baby medicine dropper (shake bottle first) into the above nightly PM snack that I self compounded from 50mg standard Naltrexone tablets ground into 50ml of distilled water (hey cool - it turns 50mg into 50ml for easy dosing) with a few drops of colloidal silver as preservative and refrigerate. Pharmacy area will have bottles and droppers and pill grinder.                          
*Occasionally, during the first week's use of LDN, patients may have some difficulty sleeping. This rarely persists after the first week. Should it do so, dosage can be temporarily reduced.

In Closing...
Let me know how it goes for you…  I welcome any advice or suggestions to improve
the contents of this site. 

Good luck!!!! ===================================================
