Not just Holistic, but how to use E: All of the Above!

We made this blog because we did tons of research on success stories and research worldwide and used it on my dog with nasal cancer named Lucy. Oddly, 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. We just wanted her to have a better quality of life. We thought this combination of E: All the Above (except no radiation or chemo) would help that for sure, but it actually put her bleeding nasal cancer in remission!
Our approach to cancer is about treating the whole animals biologic system as natural as possible. 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.
WE FEEL DIVERSITY IN TREATMENT IS KEY:
-Kill the cancer cells
-Rid the cancer cells
-Remove the toxins it produces
-Make cancer cells become easier targets for the immune system
-Slow cancer cell reproduction
-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 (40 months so far) after diagnosis WITH remission. I did not use radiation or chemotherapy.
I hope this cancer research can help your dog.
Lucy's nasal cancer is still in remission!

Dog Cancer Supplements and Herbs I Use



Can my dog take ....

HERBS AND SUPPLEMENTS:



THIS IS WHAT I GIVE LUCY! LOTS OF PILLS!


I buy most but not all of these from http://www.swansonvitamins.com except where noted.

They are cheap and most come in capsule form making it easy to open when needed (though I usually don't except in eve snack) for approx dosage changes for very small or very large dogs if you are going to follow Lucy. I am not affiliated with Swanson in any way. But most pills can be purchased anywhere. Amazon has some, or your health food store some but there it will be $$$.
Whatever you buy, be sure it DOES NOT have Xylitol or Sorbitol in it or anything with ***itol sweeteners. It is toxic to dogs. It is used a sweetener used in many chewable human products, bad for dogs. I strictly use capsules.




Definitions that are important as to how each thing performs:

Angiogenesis - Cancer tumor's creation of blood vessel network to feed it. Anti-Angiogenesis would be to slow down or stop blood vessel creation to tumor. Here is an article on how anti-angiogenesis works to slow down cancer.

Apoptosis - Programmed cell death. This is what is normal. Cancer does not stop itself. Cancer cells grow unchecked without apoptosis.

Cell Differentation - Normal cell vs cancer cell. We don't want something in between, which parts of a tumor are. Some cells 'look' somewhere in the middle. The immune system won't be able to tell what is what. We want to make the issue black and white to the immune system. No hide and seek.

Anti-oxident - simply stuff that helps remove things we don't need or should have in the body. The oxidation process has leftovers.... Cancer and getting rid of cancer puts out alot of junk.
                          
Dosages? I just give one cap of each in her food unless specified. Lucy is 80# Lab 8 years old. If your dog is much smaller please adjust if you are going to try this.


This is in a nutshell:
-Change in diet to higher protein, medium fat, and much lower carbs than typical american dogs get in a prepared bag/can diet. Cancer loves carbs/glucose to grow. It can't use protein or fat very well! NO GRAINS. Either from allergy or from poor digestion of them, it creates extra inflammation and demodulates the immune system. The intestine is the largest immune organ in the body. I just add cooked ground beef or turkey from frozen chub, or part of a can of Whole Earth Farms canned grain free (at Petco made by Merrick and good price) ,  or 2 fried eggs broken up with spatula - added to some kibble (the kibble also hides the 'feel' of the pills, add some veggies, top with some warm water to increase aroma and set off 'prey' alarm in dog brain, add pills and mix some with fork. I recommend Earthborne Primitive Natural because it has a higher protein and medium fat content to begin with. It's at most independent pet stores, VERY well made, and reasonably priced.

-AM meal mostly*
antioxidants. Why mostly these in AM? Because the Artemisinin must be given at least 6-8 hours away from lots of anti-oxidents.
-PM meal mostly* immune boosters. Cancer grows most at night.

-Evening cottage cheese/flax oil snack - some supplements and 1 Rx


-an Rx of an old med (Naltrexone) that has a great side effect and no bad ones that boosts the immune system used off label and at very very low dosages. (Low Dose Naltrexone)

-*some other natural analogues of anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, and misc. things to support or deal with symptoms or side effects

- natural analogues of things that kill cancer cells, lessens their ability to grow, or makes them easier for the immune system to get rid of.  If using the original natural whole version rather than a lab isolated synthesized version you get better results and much less side effects.

Each thing I chose has it's own properties in the mix of what it is doing:   When combined, this combination kills cancer cells, makes cancer cells either look a cancer cell or a normal cell to the immune system so the body can find and remove easier, boost the immune system, get rid of all the junk these processes put out, slow blood vessel growth to cancer cells, and manage symptoms and effects of cancer. And of course a healthier animal in general.  We can buy time. This is what we want. There is lessening or hopefully remission for as long as we can get it with a dog that is not stressed out and sick.

  


Again, I just wanted to create a very multi-modal diverse approach using as much well researched, but easily purchased stuff, that is a natural whole substance not some chemical extract in total isolation. The body is too complex too just focus on one thing. There is no magic one pill or treatment. It's 20! I hope your dog is not fussy. Your vet will likely nix your ideas. A Holistic vet won't. In fact, you will need one to be able to get 2 of the herb compounds. The holistic vet probably won't want you to give all these pills I give Lucy either, they may only want a few given. I disobeyed mine. Hah! Now she is a believer every year she sees Lucy for her YEARLY checkup! Yes, yearly.

Salmon Oil or Fish Oil Gel Capsules (NOT ENTERIC COATED JUST PLAIN GELCAPS)- Omega 3 - Few squirts from bottle purchased fresh in refrigerated section of health food store or 2 or 3 Gel Caps.  You have read plenty about how Omega 3 oils Fish oils help you. There is plenty of cancer research on this. You can go cheap at the drugstore or Swanson that's ok, but it would be better if you got the fresher refrigerated version to simply squirt some on the dog food at the health food store or health section of a supermarket. Or use gelcaps. I give Lucy 2 gelcaps per meal. Make sure not lemon flavored or such. Just plain fish oils. But fresher the better like refrigerated due to oxidation.

         Swanson Superior Herbs Wolfberry Standardized Ext "Goji Berry"
 ANTI-OXIDENT ALSO CALLED IN CHINESE MEDICINE DI GU PI. HELPS LIVER TOO

Published studies have also reported biological effects of Lycium barbarum in animal models, and speculated from this basic research that there may be potential benefits against cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases,]vision-related diseases (such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma) or from neuroprotective,[28] anticancer[29] or immunomodulatory activity.[4][30]
In Traditional Chinese MedicineLycium leaves are used in a tea, together with the root bark. A glucopyranoside (namely (+)-Lyoniresinol-3α-O-β-d-glucopyranoside) and phenolic amides (dihydro-N-caffeoyltyramine, trans-N-feruloyloctopamine, trans-N-caffeoyltyramine and cis-N-caffeoyltyramine) isolated from wolfberry root bark have inhibitory activity in vitro against human pathogenic bacteria and fungi.[31][32]
 500 MG Caps          1 cap given
                                                 

         American Biotech Labs Colloidal Silver Biotics   (Swanson ) FOR ANTIBIOTIC USE
Liquid 8 fl oz 10 ppm Liquid   (1/2 dropper full into meal - odorless and tasteless- ok long term as long as their meal has probiotics in it. The good dog foods do or also give a little good live yogurt)  I give this when I think Lucy might have infection only.
COLLOIDAL SILVER tastes almost like pure water with just a slight minerally taste, so it is easily administered orally to rabbits, goats, dogs, cats, horses, birds, ferrets, people, and other beings. Colloidal silver can be administered orally, in the eyes (for eye allergies, conjunctivitis, keratitis, etc.), in the nose (for sinusitis), sprayed on wounds, it doesn't sting or burn, via IV, Subcue, in the ears, and nebulized into the lungs. There is no natural antibiotic alternative like it for ease of administration and effectiveness. And no traditional antibiotic comes close to the effectiveness of our Colloidal Silver - EIS.
COLLOIDAL SILVER (CS/EIS) is known to kill over 650 known pathogens - viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoan. Colloidal silver has been in use for thousands of years.

                                                 
        Swanson Ultra Resveratrol 100
ANTIOXIDANT and more. 
Resveratrol has the ability to prevent and slow down cancer growth in dogs, due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.   Studies show it has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-infective properties, and it activates the longevity gene in fruit flies and worms.   Resveratrol cancer research data

       Swanson Premium NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine  
ANTI-ANGIOGENESIS and Mucolytic (AND helps mucous)  research data

N-acetyl cysteine is a broad-spectrum compound supplement traditionally under-utilized in conventional medicine. A burst of new clinical research reveals that NAC exerts dual effects, functioning both as a powerful antioxidant that replenishes cellular antioxidant systems (glutathione in particular) and also as a potent modulator of gene expression, regulating inflammation at multiple, fundamental levels. It has been shown to be an effective intervention against influenza, chronic lung diseases (helps mucous), cancers, insulin resistance, and gastritis.  NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine cancer research data and mucous info

Swanson Korean Red Gingseng Root 400mg capsules-         1 cap given
 IMMUNE, APOPTOSIS, ANTIANGIOGENIC, ANTI-OXIDENT, INCREASES CELL DIFFERENTATION.

Red Ginseng has antioxidant properties, protects against cancer formation, stimulates natural killer cell function, inhibits tumor invasion, and has antiangiogenesis properties. 
According to the University of California, red ginseng may help prevent cancer through the activation of the body's immune system. The anti-cancer effects of red ginseng are mediated through the modulation of interferon and cytokine production. Interferons and cytokines activate natural killer cell activity, thereby inhibiting tumor cell progression.

Korean Red Gingseng Root cancer research data





Swanson Alpha Lipoic Acid 250mg  1 cap given
Antioxidant

Lester Packer, Ph.D. (scientist and professor at the Berkeley Laboratory of the University of California), refers to lipoic acid as the most powerful of all the antioxidants; in fact, Packer says that if he were to invent an ideal antioxidant, it would closely resemble lipoic acid (Packer et al. 1999). Alpha-lipoic acid claims anticarcinogenic credits because it independently scavenges free radicals, including the hydroxyl radical (a free radical involved in all stages of the cancer process and linked to an increase in the likelihood of metastasis).

     Swanson Premium Full Spectrum Oregon-Grape Root - Barberry Family 
BERBERINE COMPOUNDS – SIMILAR TO BLOODROOT(THE COMPOUNDS IN BLACK SALVE and NEOPLASENE). ANTIANGIOGENIC, IMM. MODULATION, AND COX2, TNF, TIP and more. Also antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic. Cited accounts and studies everywhere. But the Oregon Grape Root's Berberine won't make them sick to their stomach like bloodroot or Neoplasene.

Swanson CoQ10 200mg  –  1 cap given
VERY GOOD ANTI-OXIDENT 
Coenzyme Q-10 is a supplement with antioxidant properties. It is a compound produced by the body and essential for the production of energy at the cellular level. Coenzyme Q-10 helps protect the heart and helps boost the immune system. . Both these benefits can be very helpful in dogs fighting any form of cancer. Some chemotherapy drugs such as doxorubicin can cause side effects such as heart toxicity in dogs, so CoQ-10 can be given as a supplement to dog cancer patients, especially those on doxorubicin. Incidentally, in humans, supplementation of CoQ-10 with other cancer treatments has been shown to improve survival times.

YUNNAN PAI YAO OR SOMETIMES SPELLED BAI YAOHERBS WITH CLOTTING FACTORS FOR BLEEDING WOUNDS OR TUMORS
Search google for this. Plenty of evidence. You can get on Amazon oddly enough. Read more at link above. DOSAGE: I gave Lucy, a 90 pound Lab, 1 capsule 2x per day just thrown in her food every day. Her bleeding was much less, her infections and swelling therefore stopped, and the scary and messy scenes stopped. During a bleed I would double or triple this dose for a few days. This bleeding had been going on for months out of her nose. Within a week of use it was less each time and after maybe a couple of months, the bleeding was hardly ever. At this point many months after diagnosis of canine nasal adenocarcinoma cancer, she has not bled AT ALL for many months now. After she had not bled for 5 weeks straight I discontinued every day use. In fact, I have not used it at all since remission that occurred after about 4 months doing the stuff in this cancer research blog. This is not a blood thickener, it just helps the body clot faster when told to clot. The bleeding itself comes from the arteries feeding the tumor breaking due to the tumor increasing in size. But can also from shrinkage occasionally - but usually from growth and irritation.
I usually get Yunnan PaiYao from Amazon  - you will not find this at your health store or Swanson. It's not that cheap, but it is VERY effective for bleeding problems. Read the comments on Amazon.
This is one of the most prized formulas in all of Chinese Medicine. This is because this is the most effective treatment that helps stop bleeding while at the same time continuing to help proper circulation of blood. May be used internally (but please consult a physician first!) and the capsule contents may be put directly onto small wounds to stop bleeding and accelerate healing. Used in both humans and animals (consult a holistic vet first!) in both everyday accidents and emergencies (again, please make sure to consult a physician). 
So, if you or your dog has bleeding issues, then this is a good pill. Not needed if you or your dog don't have bleeding issues.

Salmon Oil or Fish Oil Omega 3 - Few squirts from bottle purchased fresh in refrigerated section of health food store.Certain fatty acids called Omega 3, 6 and 9 are required in fighting cancer. Fish oil and Flax oil are a good source of these specific fatty acids.  In a diet supplemented with fish and the amino acid arginine appears to increase survival time in dogs with cancer. Or use gelcaps. I give Lucy 2 gelcaps per meal. Make sure not lemon flavored or such. Just plain fish oils. But fresher the better like refrigerated due to oxidation.

Swanson L-Arginine Amino Acid 900mg caps-  1 cap given
Slows tumor growth and slows metastasis    
 
L-Arginine is the main supplement in Hills Prescription Cancer Dog Canned Food. Not that great a dog food (very expensive and not IMHO of quality) but that's where my idea came from to use L-Arginine. 
L-Arginine is an essential amino acid required for the normal cellular growth, metabolism and organ function. However, L-Arginine also plays a vital role in inducing cell death - Apoptosis. 
In a recent study conducted on dogs suffering with lymphoblastic lymphoma, researchers were able to increase survival time to a significant level by providing L-Arginine and fish oil only as a dietary supplement. L-Arginine was found to lower the levels of lactic acid and insulin in the blood and also reduce the levels of cytokines that can help in the growth of cancer. L-Arginine also helps in enhancing immunity in cancer patients who have undergone chemotherapy or surgery. Certain cancer types do not require L-Arginine for their growth. Studies have shown that overloading such cancer cells with excess L-Arginine has resulted in decreased tumor growth.

 Swanson Premium Astragalus Root
IMMUNE BOOST-   

Recent research confirms the positive effect of Astragalus on immune functioning and its ability to help the body fight against illness and disease.  Astragalus may aid in restoring the function of the canine immune system. It also may prohibit the further growth of cancer cells and tumors.  Astragalus root also prevents bone loss and shows osteogenesis ability.(some cancers soften and destroy bone- important with cancers such as nasal cancer or bone cancers). 
Astragalus is considered a supportive herb because it also enhances the effectiveness of other herbs.

BOSWELLIAN / TURMERIC / PHELLODENDRON BARK( BARK SHOWN TO BE ANTI TUMOR IN  PUBMED.GOV)
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY,  ANTI-OXIDANT.

Studies done on laboratory animals suggest that curcumin and turmeric has significant anti-cancer activities and properties. Curcumin is making huge strides in cancer cures, as it not only inhibits tumor growth, but it shrinks existing tumors and prevents new ones from growing in carcinogenic cancers.  This herb combo above has other herbs that also act like the above all working together. And without the GI upset and side effects of the prescription NSAID COX-2 pills.  I am using this in place of the Rx Peroxicam / Meloxicam / Metacam NSAID. But in the beginning (Lucy did) and sometimes during, you might need the vet Rx to beat down inflammation.

   MYCO DEFENSE  or Swanson MUSHROOM COMPLEX or any mushroom complex caps -
IMMUNE , ANTI-ANGIOGENIC

Reishi mushrooms work to stimulate the immune system. By doing so, they restrict and prevent the growth of cancer cells.  Reishi is known to stimulate the production of potent natural anti-cancer substances that inhibit the growth of tumors. It can prevent the growth of secondary cancers, and reduces side-effects of chemotherapy. There are other mushrooms that help too.

 Artemisinin (Wormwood Standardized Extract) 
 
Artemisinin (wiki) is the second most common herbal I have read about to fight cancer in animals and it is extremely safe in almost all cases. Just don't give during radiation.
Artemisinin is an extract from the herb sweet wormwood and was originally used to treat malaria. It is currently under study by Dr. Henry Lai at the University of Washington for its effects against cancer, especially breast and bone cancer.
So how does it work?
Cancer cells take up more iron then normal cells. Artemisinin is attracted to these high iron cells and selectively goes to them. Once inside the cancer cells it reacts with the iron causing free radial formation which kills the cancer cells.
Don't give to dogs within 20 days of radiation.

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.

MISC:

ON VACCINATIONS
You might want to consider stopping all shots. I know... But if your dog has cancer and is not running around loose in the neighborhood, you should consider this. It's your call, but shots have made dogs come out of remission. It's even written in all the vets literature that comes with the vaccines to NOT give to dogs who are immune compromised. 
Vaccination research on cancer Article 1
Vaccination research on cancer Article 2





I call all of this The Tippner Cancer Protocol.  It's simply a diverse set of attacks and support for cancer. Gotta call it something since Lucy is still in remission well after vets and googles info on nasal cancer prognosis... 

IMPORTANT! THIS IS A LOT OF PILLS.  YOU MAY FIND IT HARD AT FIRST TO GET YOUR DOG TO TAKE THEM ALL IN THEIR FOOD IF THEY ARE FUSSY. JUST PUT A FEW IN AND BE SURE TO FOLLOW ARTICLES ON HOW TO MAKE FOOD IRRESISTABLE SO THEY IGNORE THE PILLS AND JUST CHOW DOWN. PLUS, IF YOUR DOG IS SMALL OR OLD YOU MAY NEED TO BUY SMALLER DOSAGES. ASK A HOLISTIC VET IF IN DOUBT.   

Whatever you buy, be sure it DOES NOT have Xylitol or anything with ***itol in it. It is toxic to dogs. It is a sweetener used in many chewable products. I strictly use capsules.


Natural Defense Flea & Tick Spray For Dogs & Puppies
Liquid 8 fl oz Liquid  1         STOP PUTTING PESTICIDES ON YOUR DOG! They are nervous system and immune system disruptors.

I let the Artemisinin/Wormwood already being given handle any heartworm prevention. I just will no longer put pesticides IN my dog either like Heartguard. Again your call, but if you consistently use the above repellents, let no standing water in yards, and use the /Artemisinin/Wormwood.... it takes many months for heartworm larvae to become worms. Heartguard is a pesticide that stays in your dogs body for months. Do wild dogs die from heartworm? No. They eat right and have healthy immune systems. And that is what all this site is about.


VARIANCES
  • If your dog has Mast Cell Tumors, then Tagamet and Benedryl OTC work very well to add. They both work on both types of histamine receptors - mast cells tumors release lots of histamine. Ask your vet about this.
  • If your dog has Hemangiosarcoma Lucy's list is good to consider I think.
  • If your dog has Osteosarcoma, same list consideration.
  • If your dog has forms of blood cancers like T-Cell Lymphoma, then I might remove the Mushrooms and Beta Glucans because they could make things worse. They trigger t-cells which may not be the best thing for T-cell lymphomas. But are effective and helpful for other cancers. GENISTEIN supplements addition ( google it as canine lymphoma genistein and see what comes up!). Genistein is an isoflavone extracted from soybeans. If you google it you'll find page after page of promising research -- mostly and especially on lymphoma and t-cell lymphoma. Among other things it caused the death of those cancer cells without harming healthy ones. (Something chemo or radiation DON"T do) I found one source so far that is pure genistein costs alot but it is pure and likely near what researchers use due to dosage and pureness Genistein pills that were proper I could only find here .  I also have Lucy on Melatonin--- Good for many cancers like hers. but NOT for lymphoma -- or at least, evidence for leukemia and lymphoma patients is not complete, but early evidence suggests it may be better for those cancers than the patient. Do not give Bone Essentials- it may be bad for elevated calcium level that may be present in some blood cancers.
  • Dosages? I just give one cap of each in her food unless specified. Lucy is 80# Lab 8 years old. If your dog is much smaller please adjust if you are going to try this.


Human version of Dog Stasis Breaker  (a tumor buster) is available at this store. This version, called Tumoclear is for humans, I don't know if this set of herbs in Tumorclear is ok for dogs.  Many have asked me about a human type set for yourselves. Everything else Lucy takes ARE human pills but safe for dogs. Lucy would be proof... 
A human version is Wei Qi Booster (immune booster) is at that company as well Tumorite at this link, you take both just like the dog... but remember these are HUMAN versions I don't know if they are ok for dogs to take!



I buy most but not all of these from http://www.swansonvitamins.com except where noted.


Please work closely with your vet. I am not responsible for anything you do. 

Please contact me if you have questions about what I am doing and researching.
 Lucy is still alive. She was diagnosed in March of 2011 by biopsy. Given 4 months to live.
