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.

Another example of chinese herbs used in cancer treatment

Tumorite TM
(Fu Zheng Kang Ai Wan/Pian)
An All Natural Chinese Herbal Supplement

TumoriteTM ( Fu Zheng Kang Ai Wan, Fu Zheng Kang Ai Pian, 扶正抗癌片) is a Chinese herbal supplement formulated to support our body's ability to defend tumours.†

What does it do?
From the perspective of TCM, one of the basic principles to win the battle against cancer is to promote the internal ability of the body in resisting any pathological occurrence, a concept similar to what we normally understand as increasing the immune function. This includes enhancing the fundamental elements such as Qi, Yin, Yang energies, Blood, etc. (TRANSLATION - IT BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM)  A complementary approach is to go directly against the tumors by softening mass and clearing toxic substances (TCM considers tumors or cancers as toxins along with other pathogenic molecules in the body).

TumoriteTM or Fu Zheng Kang Ai Wan/Pian is a herbal dietary supplement formulated to follow the TCM principles. It is composed of 8 Chinese herbs that collectively tonify Qi energy and the blood, remove stagnation, resolve phlegm and mass. The herbal supplement may provide unique nutritional support to help recovery from tumor and to enhance the immune function.†

Tumorite consists of the following Chinese herbs:
Huang Qi (Astragalus root) is a famous Chinese herb that enhances Qi energy and tonifies the Spleen. Many studies have found that Astragalus can enhance the immune function, which is largely dependent on the spleen, in consistent with the role of Astragalus in TCM in defending the body from pathogenic toxins and strengthening the spleen.
Dang Gui (Angelica sinensis root) is a well known Chinese herb that both nourishes and moves the blood.†
Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome) is a key tonic for the Spleen and dries Dampness.
Chi Shao (Red Peony root) clears heat, cools the blood, disperses stagnation, reduces swelling, and stops pain.
Zhi Ban Xia (Processed Pinellia rhizome) is a major Chinese herb that expels phlegm. It also dissolve nodules.† In TCM, excessive mass and nodules belong to phlegm.
Shan Zha (Hawthorn berry) helps improve digestion to remove food retention and promote blood circulation to disperse blood stasis.
Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) moves Qi and strengthen digestion, expels dampness and transforms phlegm.
Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies Spleen and Qi and moderates the action of the other herbs.

A complementary approach is to go directly against the tumors by softening mass and clearing toxic substances by using the below with the above herbs. 

TumoclearTM ( Kang Zhong Pian, 抗肿片), is a Chinese herbal medicine specially formulated for tumor and cancer care. It is composed of multiple Chinese herbs that have been shown in studies to help fight various tumors or cancers.†

What does it do?
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), many Chinese herbs have been reported to treat tumor cells in various clinical settings. Tumoclear has a unique combination of the following Chinese herbs.

Herba Sarcandrae (Zhong jie feng, Cao shan hu, Sarcandra glabra): Sarcandra has been used traditionally to disperse pathogenic wind and remove blood stasis. Modern studies have revealed its antitumor properties.† It was shown to modestly inhibit the growth of the implanted S180 sarcoma or HepA tumor in mice and prolong their survival. When administered together with chemotherapy drugs like CTX, 5-Fu, ADM or radiotherapy 60Co, Sarcandra can increase their antitumor efficacy in the range of 11.17% to 39.80%. In a small clinical trial of 14 acute leukemia patients with Sarcandra, 4 patients had a complete remission and 6 a partial remission. Relapse was observed after the withdrawal of Sarcandra. No significant side effect was noticed during the trial. In a separate trial of 373 patients with various late stage tumors using Sarcandra, 53.9% patients showed improvement, of which 15.7% showed marked improvement. Among the types of cancers that better responded to the treatment are pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, esophageal cancer, and leukemia.1 †

Herba Scutellariae Barbatae (Ban zhi lian, Portulaca grandiflora): The Chinese herb Ban zhi lian has been long used to treat various tumors in Chinese Medicine. In recent years it has been shown to inhibit the growth of several lines of tumour cells in implanted mice and in petri dish. In clinical studies, Chinese herbal formulas that include Ban zhi lian as a major ingredient have been used with various successes in treating many types of malignant tumours such as liver cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, malignant ascites, and breast cancer in Chinese hospitals.2 † For example, in a trial involving 136 breast cysts, 44 (32%) showed remission, 42 (31%) marked improvement, 30 (22%) improvement, 20 (15%) had no improvement. No significant side effect was noticed. In USA, a Ban zhi lian herbal preparation is now being approved by FDA for phase II trial of stage IV metastatic breast cancer, as reported in a Oct 15, 2007 Time magazine article.3 In an earlier trial, 21 stage IV metastatic breast cancer patients were treated with Ban zhi lian. After about a year, 25% of the patients showed stabilization in their disease for 90 days and 19% for 180 days.3 †

Herba Salviae Chinensis (Shi jian chuan): Salvia chinensis is another Chinese herb that is often used in Chinese herbal medicines for treatment of cancers in China. It is normally included in combination with other Chinese herbs. The types of cancers treated include liver cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, and nasopharynx cancer. For example, in one study of 158 late stage stomach cancer, one Salvia chinensis-containing herbal formula was used along with chemotherapy for 1 to 2 years, the 3, 5, and 10 years' survival rate are 41.07%, 30.36% and 12.5% in the first group of 56 patients, and the 3 years' survival rate is over 50% in the second group of 102 patients with the best result seen in the combination with 5-Fu chemotherapy.†
Semen Coicis Lachryma-Jobi (Yi yi ren, Job's tears, semen coicis): Coix is a maize-like seed traditionally consumed in China and is often a component of anticancer Chinese herbal formulas in China. A Coix preparation named Kanglaite is now among the best selling anticancer drugs in China. The Coix preparation has been approved by FDA for a phase II trial to test its efficacy in treating non–small-cell lung cancer in USA. Studies have suggested that the Coix preparation may enhance the efficacy of chemotherapy and reduce side effects such as fatigue, nausea, and hair loss, as discussed by a Science magazine news focus. 4 †

Case Reports
(Case reports are provided to have a better understanding of the product. Please be aware that the info was received from acupuncturists/ Chinese medicine doctors and was not reviewed by FDA. Drs. Gu from California and Lei from Arkansas contributed to the cases).†

1. Female breast cancer patient, 45 years old. Blood test indicates a cancer cell index was as high as 22. Patient came to my office for TCM treatment because she does not want to go through surgery and chemotherapy treatment. I prescribed Tumoclear tablets for her to take orally and provided acupuncture and Qi-gong treatments. Her tumor was reduced in size significantly and the cancer cell index went down from 22 to 8. She has not undergone the excision surgery to date. Her condition is under the control completely.†

2. Late stage lung cancer patient, Female, 70 years old. Patient was diagnosed to have only 3-month time to live by Western medicine doctors. She had to take morphine to reduce the agonizing pain but with unsatisfactory results. After visiting our place, taking Tumoclear tablets and receiving acupuncture and Qi-Gong treatments, she reported her pain was reduced greatly. Tumoclear does have the analgesic and stabilizing effects. The patient eventually died after 9 months. Her family was grateful that her pain was reduced and she passed away very peacefully.†

3. Male patient, with metastatic Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma spreading to the brain. He was diagnosed by Western medicine doctors to have a 6-month survival time. Prescribed a large dose of Tumoclear from the start of the treatment. It has been more than two years since and his cancer is under control. He has been taking Tumoclear continuously under my supervision.†

4. Female patient, 20 years old at the time of visit, had Pharyngeal cancer. Patient had gone through chemotherapy but the cancer relapsed. She had a whole body edema, accompanied by the jaundice. Prescribed Tumoclear at large doses from the start of the treatment in conjunction with Guang Ci Tang’s Qin Dan Hua Shi Pian. Also provided acupuncture and Qigong treatments. Now at age of 24, her cancer is completely under control.†

5. Male, 45-year old, with pancreatic cancer. He had gone through chemotherapy treatment for approximately half a year without achieving apparent results. The size of the tumor was not reduced and at about 1.5cm. After coming to my clinic, she had since stopped the chemotherapy. Prescribed Tumoclear and Reishi (Ganoderma japonicum) in conjunction with acupuncture treatment. After three weeks treatment, the tumor had been reduced in size from 1.5cm to 0.3cm.†

6. Female, 55 years old, with metastatic lung cancer spreading to the cerebrum. She did not undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy and instead chose to receive TCM treatment at my clinic. Prescribed Tumoclear and Reishi (Ganoderma japonicum) in conjunction with acupuncture treatment. After five weeks treatment, the brain tumor had disappeared from a size of 0.9cm at the onset.†

"Fuzheng Kang'ai Granules has good short-term therapeutic efficiency and few side effects for patients with late gastric antrum cancer. It can significantly improve the life quality, extend the survival period, and improve the survival rate in patients with late gastric antrum cancer, which may be due to the up-regulation of the immune regulating factors such as IL-2, TNF-alpha, IFN-gamma and down-regulation of the immune inhibitory factor sIL-2R."

I am still researching these for dogs as a possible replacement for Wei Qi Booster and Stasis Breaker. These would be cheaper and easier to get.

Tumorite is no longer available at
It didn't work that well for Lucy anyway. I switched back to Stasis Breaker. You can get that here or from your holistic vet.
