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.

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.

VDI-TKcanine+, a blood test to detect and monitor cancer in dogs

VDI-TKcanine+, a blood test to detect and monitor cancer in dogs, is awarded the Seal of Excellence by the National Canine Cancer Foundation
 Phoenix, AZ - (BUSINESS WIRE) - July 25, 2012 - The National Canine Cancer Foundation (NCCF), a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating canine cancer,  today announced the awarding of its ‘Seal of Excellence' to VDI-TKcanine+, a blood test to detect and monitor cancer in dogs, and offered exclusively by Veterinary Diagnostics Institute (VDI).

Cancer affects one out of every three dogs with half dying from the disease. "One of the keys to saving lives and beating cancer is early detection, and now with VDI-TKcanine+, every dog owner has access to a simple blood test for this very purpose.", said Gary Nice, Founder and President of the NCCF. "Since the day we founded the NCCF, I've been waiting to make this announcement."

VDI-TKcanine+ is a rapid turnaround send-out blood test made available to dog owners across the U.S. through their veterinarians. The blood test is used to confirm the presence of disease when cancer is suspected, and to monitor the course of treatment or spread of disease following diagnosis.  "There is a strict criteria used in awarding the Seal of Excellence by the NCCF.", explains Gary Nice. "In fact, this is only the second product and company to receive our coveted award".

"We are very proud to be partnering with the NCCF to help fund canine cancer research.", said Randy Ringold, President of VDI.  "The goals of the NCCF to find cures, better treatments and cost-effective diagnostics in managing canine cancer very much align with our own."

About The National Canine Cancer Foundation
The National Canine Cancer Foundation is a nationwide, contribution funded, 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health issue in dogs by funding grants directly to cancer researchers who are working to save dogs lives by finding cures, better treatments and accurate, cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with canine cancer.

About Veterinary Diagnostics Institute
Veterinary Diagnostics Institute (VDI) is a specialty diagnostics company that provides veterinary reference laboratory services and in-house diagnostic products. VDI is dedicated to the research and development of innovative biomarkers to assist veterinarians in the diagnostic workup of companion animals.

Dual Biomarker Test Design
VDI-TKcanine+ combines the information obtained from two independent measures of system irregularity; abnormal cell division and systemic inflammatory activity. Thymidine kinase (TK) is a measure of dysregulated cellular proliferation. C-reactive protein (CRP) is elevated in the presence of systemic inflammatory disease.


Neoplasia Index

The Neoplasia Index (NI) is a patent-pending, dual-biomarker algorithm that employs cancer specific TK and general inflammatory marker CRP.  The integration of these two biomarkers into a “neoplasia index” brings two unrelated processes together (namely dysregulated cell division and systemic inflammation, for which cancer is one possible cause of that inflammation) and effectively amplifies the situation whereby the two may be elevated in concert (i.e. neoplasia).

Cancer Hopes Dashed by Myopic Researchers

"Researchers still continue to pursue the idea of finding the one chemical that will halt or reverse the disease when it’s obvious that so many things are wrong that the approach will never work."
