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.

Hemangiosarcoma and Bleeding Tumors in Animals

 Hemangiosarcoma and other Bleeding Tumors in Animals such as Nasal Cancer

Hemangiosarcoma is a very deadly cancer in dogs, mainly Goldens and German Shepherds, which generally isn't diagnosed until the dog collapses or dies. This sort of cancer is genetic, hereditary, and it runs in bloodlines. It causes a tumor in the heart (also seen in the spleen, and other organs) that leads to fluid build-up in the pericardium. Yunnan Baiyao has been used successfully to relieve the fluid build up and help with the dog's comfort level. Typical dosage for active bleeding med-large dog: 2 capsules, twice a day, with food. 

For general Canine Cancer information:
TESTIMONIAL (Veterinary):
"Yunnan Bai yao has been found to be beneficial in both our oncology and emergency patients for many reasons. Patients with excessive bleeding caused by trauma, hemorrhagic pericardial effusion,cancer,  bleeding skin tumors, and hemorrhagic abdominal effusion may benefit from this Chinese herbal supplement. Patients with single or multiple internal masses are prone to bleeding or can sometimes rupture causing a large amount of blood to build up in the abdomen. The patients we expect to benefit the most from this product include: hemangiosarcoma, heart based tumors, liver tumors, mast cell tumors, any bleeding nasal tumor, and some types of melanomas. Unfortunately most tumors have the potential to bleed either due to their type and/or location. We have been using both the oral and topical form of the Yunnan Baiyao. They are very helpful.

Quoted "The red pills are used for acute bleeding or discovery of acute bleeding. We have recently started using the red pill on the day of surgery, such as stable splenectomies. If the red pill is used in acute emergencies, we will start the regular capsules 2-6 hours later. We dose our pets as follows: Cats and dogs <10 lbs 1EOD, dogs 11-20 lbs 1 every 24 hours, 21-89 lbs 1 every 12 hours, >90 lbs 2 every 12 hours.
With some cases as they progress in their disease, the tumors grow larger, or the bleeding/oozing is more frequent we may have the owners increase the frequency to every 6-8 hours. "

"Dear Suigetsu[sic] Shop,

Saige was diagnosed with hemangiosarcomo October 24, 2009 by a highly regarded specialized vet hospital. There was a tumor on her heart that caused blood to collect between the heart and the pericardium. The blood was drawn off from the sack between her heart and the pericardium. Her life expectancy according to the vet at that time was 5 minutes to 3 months maximum. She was with us 4 months - and those 4 months were very good - normal activity, eating and all bodily functions performing perfectly normal . We are of firm belief that the capsules - Yunnan Baiyao - had a very positive affect on her condition. We're of strong conviction that Yunnan Baiyo's affect on controlling bleeding was a strong factor in her being with us as long as she was - especially with her being her happy - playful - loving self right up to early this morning. She took no other supplements."

Before surgery: Take 1 red pill and 2 capsules.
After surgery: Take 2 capsules 2x daily for several days.  If necessary, combine with a tonic formula such as mushroom extracts.

Apply directly to bleeding wound (clean first, and bandage afterwards).
In deep or wide wounds, squeeze cut together, pour powder on, and apply pressure or keep closed for 1 to 2 minutes, or until bleeding has stopped.

About the red pill included in the Yun Nan : The manufacturer recommends that one take the single red pill (bao xian zi) be taken in cases of serious wounds or bleeding. This is used to prevent shock from blood loss. It does not stop bleeding. Use only one red pill per day. Ingredients are unknown. The red pill is very small and located in a tiny dimple in the center of the foil sheet of capsules (1 red pill per sheet of 16 capsules). In the bottle of powder, the red pill is encased in the wad of cotton found when you open the bottle.


Veterinary Application:
(recommendation from this article YUN NAN BAIYAO-WHERE'S THE CLINICAL EVIDENCE? ©2006

As with many herbal therapies, dose ranges of yunnan baiyao are poorly defined and widely variable. Dosing is often 'to effect' and may vary depending on the cause of the bleeding. 

The following dose recommendations have been gathered from a variety of sources, including VIN postings, the CAVM list discussions, textbooks and continuing education talks: 

Animal Suggested Dosage


open capsule and sprinkle on superficial wounds, bleeding tumors, etc.
one (250 mg) capsule per 10 kg, once to twice a day

one capsule per 5 kg daily, given as divided doses, if possible ¼ tsp per 5-7 kg, OR 60-75 mg/kg, at least once a day
75-100 mg/kg daily, given as divided doses

<15 kg = 1 capsule P.O. twice a day

15-30 kg = 2 capsules P.O. twice a day

>30kg = 2 capsules P.O. three times a day


open capsule and sprinkle on superficial wounds, bleeding tumors, etc. ½ -1 capsule P.O. twice a day, adjusting appropriately


open capsule and sprinkle on superficial wounds, bleeding tumors, etc.

1 bottle (4 gm) P.O. three times a day with water

2 bottles P.O. twice a day for six days, then 1 bottle twice a day for six days


(400-1000gm) open capsule and sprinkle on superficial wounds, bleeding tumors, etc.

one (250 mg) capsule dissolved in water, given by oral gavage, once a day

Yunnan Baiyao is gaining popularity as a herbal medicine to support EIPH in horses. This information on dosage for race horses is copied from This information has not been verified and is provided only for its informational content.
Suggested Use: The day before competition, give 1 full bottle of the Yunnan Baiyao powder, AM & PM, but save the red pills. On the morning of competition give 1 full bottle of the powder again saving the red pill. Then at the Lasix shot use the 4th bottle of Yunnan Baiyao powder. At this time give all the 4 red pills that you have saved to the horse.
Special Note: If the horse has bled thru everything that vets, herbs, vitamins, acupuncture can do, you may try 2 bottles at a time. 

I give Lucy who has nasal cancer 1 Yunnan capsule per meal at her 85 pounds or double dosage for a few days during a bleed.

I buy it from Amazon. It has unfortunately become more expensive. But it does work. Read the Amazon testimonials on the Yun Nan and where to buy link.
