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

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.

Sulforaphane in Broccoli slows Cancer?

Sulforaphane in Broccoli slows Cancer in Dogs?
For decades, the word was out that something in cruciferous vegetables protects animals from cancer; in 1992, scientists from Johns Hopkins University identified the active constituent as a chemical called sulforaphane. Broccoli contains more sulforaphane than the other vegetables. The best source of it comes from sprouts that have grown to the second leaf stage; these seedlings contain between 10 to 100 times as much sulforaphane as a full-grown broccoli.
To date the sulforaphane research focusing on cancer has discovered that this protection results from stimulation of the body's own antioxidant and detoxification system, which is comprised of what scientists call Phase 2 Enzymes.  The enzymes eliminate carcinogens from the body before they can cause DNA damage. This action protects healthy cells from cancer triggering chemicals.
More exciting from a cutting edge point of view is a paper in the March 2000 issue of Cancer Research which reported for the first time that sulforaphane can cause cancer cells to self-destruct, that it triggers programmed cell death or apoptosis.   Research that is more recent reports on the genetic mechanisms by which these broccoli chemicals work.  For example, a recent study on breast cancer showed sulforaphane binding to mammary tissue after just a single dose of broccoli sprouts.   Earlier studies from 1997 and 2000 demonstrated that sulforaphane prevented carcinogens from triggering cancer in breast tissue. Other benefits of this supplement include increasing the liver’s capacity to detoxify potential carcinogens.  S

A anecdotal quote:
"When Jazzie was first diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in May, 2007, I started her on Sulforaphone supplemental. That may be an explanation why her lung mets did not show symptoms until January of 2008; they usually show metastasis within 3 or 4 months.  I still have her on it and recommend it to everyone who owns a dog!  Use it as prevention, especially in those breeds most prone to develop cancer." 

 You can order it online at swansonvitamins pretty cheap or most health food sites or stores. I give Lucy 1 pill in her evening snack.
