Newsletter News

We apologize for not publishing newsletters more frequently. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Russell is still recovering from his concussion. The resultant mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) still requires more rest, treatment and self-therapy, which takes time away from the business.
  2. We adopted a new dog. The subsequent puppy, potty and peacemaker training (with our 14-year old cat) has consumed all his time. Click on the links to see Lily.

Integrative Approach to Cancer: Part 1

Most people think because we live a totally "wholistic" lifestyle and have a holistic online business, that we would Doctornever use Western medicine's cancer treatment. Fortunately, we have never had to make that decision for ourselves but have confronted that decision twice with our own pets and many clients and their pets. The following is not presented as a cure for cancer but our own personal integrative wholistic approach to cancer. We believe for the best possible chance for success with any cancerous condition, one must use whatever works for that individual's body and this may change as the body progresses through the healing process. Here are two examples.

Our client was a 56-year old former smoker, with a family history of lung cancer. They already had moderate emphysema. They were subsequently diagnosed with primary squamous cell carcinoma of their right lung (Stage 4) with bone metastasis (#8 right rib bone) and given 3-6 months to live. X-rays showed an irregular nodule/mass in the right lung and chronic mild interstitial prominence. Biopsy showed poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma at 10% positive. Client chose to get systemic chemoimmunotherapy with Carboplatin AUC5 and Abraxane, in addition to Keytruda (KEYTRUDA is a type of immunotherapy that works by blocking the PD-1 pathway to help prevent cancer cells from hiding. KEYTRUDA helps the immune system do what it was meant to do: detect and fight cancer cells.) Unfortunately, her first doctor gave her a "lethal" chemotherapy dose with horrible results. Client switched oncologists and continued only on the Keytruda therapy. Client remained active and used an inhaler when needed. Client started BioSuperfood-f3 about 9 months after beginning chemotherapy. One month after starting BioSuperfood-f3 client was up to 7 caps/day. They felt good, with lots of energy, no sickness during the winter. PET scan now showed cancer in #8 rib bone completely gone. Major tumor in right lung is shrinking. PET scan four months later showed she was now cancer-free.

Julius, feline adopted at age 3, had an impish, feisty personality and tried to rule the whole house even though Julius age 3he was the third feline addition, plus one canine. At age 10 he started vomiting frequently, so we stopped his raw food diet and switched to canned food. We experimented with many canned foods before finding a prescription food that he could tolerate. In addition to Visbiome (probiotic), B12 shots, Cerenia (vomiting), Drontal (dewormer), Mirtazapine (appetite stimulant), metronidazole (diarrhea) and SubQ fluids prescribed by our holistic vet, we continued to give him our holistic BioPreparation-F3+, PSP and CBD products and do acupuncture. After all those failed to help, our holistic vet added Prednisolone. After the Prednisolone failed to stop his diarrhea and weight loss, our vet referred us to an internal medicine specialist who suggested a chemotherapy drug, Chlorambucil, which reduces inflammation and can help, whether the problem is irritable bowel disease or GI lymphoma (which is a continuum in cats). Since nothing else had helped and Julius was starting to "circle the drain", in the words of our vet, we decided to give it a try.older Julius Chlorambucil is an older immune system suppressant, anti-cancer drug, with an off-label usage for animals. It is our understanding that Chlorambucil has a long history of use, its side effects are well known, manageable and this drug does not decimate the body's immune system like stronger chemotherapy drugs do. It is well tolerated by cats. After less than a month on Chlorambucil, Julius' diarrhea stopped, his condition stabilized, and he started to gain weight. As Julius improved, we focused on feeding him more, multiple times per day, but neglected to add all his holistic products that we were giving (namely BioPreparation-F3+ and Cellular BioPreparation-F3+PSP). After 2½ years on Chlorambucil, his condition worsened. He began vomiting frequently and didn't want to eat anything. Ultrasound showed that he had a blockage in his intestines and a mass on his kidney. His irritable bowel disease or small cell GI lymphoma had progressed to large cell GI lymphoma, which is difficult to treat and rapidly fatal in cats. We tried a shot of Elspar, a stronger chemo drug, which had no effect. It was obvious at this point he did not have enough life energy or the will to continue, so we made the difficult decision to do in-home euthanasia at age 13.

Looking back on his 3-year journey with lymphoma here are the stages we took:

  1. Rather than take the Western medicine approach of fighting to destroy all the cancer cells with big guns (strong drugs), we chose an integrative approach by working with the body's own immune system and nutrition first.

  2. When that did not work, we added conventional veterinary drugs.

  3. When those drugs also failed to work, we added a mild chemotherapy drug which rapidly stopped his diarrhea and allowed him to gain weight. He would have died at that point if we had not been willing to try the chemo drug.

  4. His condition worsened 2½ years later, so we said goodbye to Julius at age 13.

We got almost 3 extra years with Julius, with many holistic and conventional veterinary lessons learned, by using an integrative cancer approach. As holistic consultants/coaches, we learned never to say "never" to chemotherapy. At each stage of his condition, we evaluated what had worked, what had not worked and added any option (both holistic and conventional) that made sense to try, that did not destroy his immune system or quality of life.

We hope you never have to confront these difficult decisions for yourself or your pet. If you want to be holistically proactive, rather than medically reactive, consider the 20+ years of successful cancer in animals research Dr Michael Kiriac did, his experimental results on humans at Chernobyl and his eliminating the pancreatic cancer epidemic in his own family. BioPreparation for pets and BioSuperfood for people are Nature's vitamin chest in a capsule, containing over 5,000 individual nutrients including abundant antioxidants (such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, gamma-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin, lutein, beta-cryptoxanthin, phycocyanin, xanthophylis, astaxanthin and more) which research has shown to have nutritional anti-cancer benefits. Do not wait for symptoms to show up or blow up.
