[YEA]  07/01/2012: Helen from Christchurch, New Zealand.: "Thankyou so much for this site. I found out about coconut oil on this site but have some suggestions based on my experience of it. I am using it for my old golden retriever to help extend his life as he is in heart failure(also on diuretics and Vetmedin). The coconut oil makes him more energetic, and I believe helps his old joints but the most noticable effect is it makes his "old dog lumps" resolve, even ones he has had for years. He is lump free at the age of 16. I tried the extra virging cold pressed coconut oil but it didn't help my own rheumatism and seemed to help my dog less too. I have also noticed my nasal polyps have suddenly gone. When I stop the coconut oil my retriever grows new lumps but they are gone within two weeks of starting the coconut oil again. I am also using coconut oil to prevent seizures for my red boarder collie/ blue healer cross. In his first year of life he has had at least four grand-mal seizures, which honey rubbed on his gums brings him out of. Hopefully the coconut oil will keep him seizure free. Coconut oil is amazing."

12/08/2013: Cj from Gr Mi replies: "My furry boy was just diagnosed with a tumor Friday. It is pressing down on his brain stem. They think it is a Choroid plexus tumor. I have been reading for some kind of help for him and right now am drained. He just turned 9. He is 42 pound dachshund/cocker rescue baby. They put him on Steroids to see if that will help shrink around the tumor. I have been reading things today that say it will actually shrink the tumor. He has had four doses of the Steroid meds and was doing better yesterday. He stayed awake all day and into the late night. Today he is making noises as though he is uncomfortable but yet he likes to go out and walk and is wagging his tail and licking me as he has done. Coconut oil is mentioned, I've read and heard hydrogen peroxide will help. I am now so confused and I feel as though time is not on my side. Can anyone help me with what I can do for him please? Doses etc? As with the peroxide. I don't know how much to give him. Please help? Thank you, CJ"

Start by reading up on the Earth Clinic brain tumor page:

http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/brain-tumor.html

Given the weight of your dog the nutritional doses in the formulas on the tumor page could reasonably be halved.

The linking to topics is goofy - but this is posted on the real time page for you also:

11/24/2009: Kathy from Orlinda, Tn, US: "Confused about Essiac tea for tumors in cats.

My cat 19-year old has a tumor on his back leg that is increasing in size pretty quickly. The vet is pretty sure it's cancer. I've been reading posts here and elsewhere about Essiac tea, but I have some questions/concerns:

1. Some say that alcohol is toxic to cats, and it seems that the Essiac concentrate has alcohol in it. I've seen that some say to boil the concentrate in water to remove the alcohol, but I'm not sure how much of each to use. Is it necessary to let this mixture sit for a while and how long is the mixture good? Can someone explain this process?

2. I see that Essiac comes in capsules. Is it OK to open those & put the powder in the cat's food? If so, how much?

3. I've also read that rhubarb is toxic to cats. Is this the same rhubarb that's in Essiac? (I know Essiac contains "turkey rhubarb."

I guess I've read so much that I'm kind of confused. Any input would be greatly appreciated."

[YEA]  02/11/2009: Carla from Grand Rapids, Michigan: "11 year old female cat diagnosed with hemangioscarcoma on 12/3/08. Tumor was on her spleen and was the size of a clemantine. Because of tumor size,the vet gave her 1 to 3 months to live. He removed both tumor and spleen, ultrasound showed no mass anywhere else and lungs were clear but gave no hope. Couldn't find much info on feline cancer/natural cures other than this site. They only do studies on dogs and cats respond differently. I made my own plan of treatment and she is thriving as of 2/11/09. She plays with her toys and runs around after my other cats daily, hasn't done this for years! Coat is the most beautiful I have seen it.

Immediately got her on Essiac Tea (Esiack Caps 450mg by Now Foods) 1-450mg cap in morning 1 hour before her breakfast and 1-450 cap 1 hour before her dinner. It is important to take on an empty stomach, 1 hour before meals or 2-3 hours after eating. I mix 1 cap in 1 ml of water in a small glass that I allow to sit for hours (while at work and again over night). To administer, I suck the Esiak Tea back in the plastic syringe. I kneel and sit on my feet, trapping her between my knees with my ankles crossed so she can't back out. I pull her chin up slightly and squeeze it into the side of her mouth between teeth and cheek. I also have her on 1/5 cap (at both feedings) of maitake mushroom (NewChapter Organics veg cap- 1000mg?) to build immunity. She takes Transfer Factor Tri-Factor Formula (4Life) which is only natural transfer factor from cow colostrum and egg yolk (think mother's first milk) also a powerful immune booster. This is not lactose free but 4Life makes one that is for cats with inflammatory bowel. A 300mg cap Tri-Factor administered 1 cap per day first week, 2 caps per day 2nd week and 3 caps per day week 3. Stop at 3 caps daily. This will pass the blood/brain barrier important for brain cancers. All above are human grade elements that will do no harm. All (except Esiak) are mixed in with her food. Vet prescribed a pet vitamin in liquid form-Pet-Tabs Iron-plus due to her severe anemia, 1 ml daily for 21 days after surgery which I also mixed in her food and stll give her half dose of till the bottle will be done. Very important* took her off all grains and cheap grocery store brand foods. I feed Pet Guard brand (health food store). She can't tolerate chicken so she eats only the Premium Choice beef at the moment. I credit Essiac Tea, Transfer Factor and my begging prayers to God daily as to why she is still with me."

I started giving her a dropper of concentrated essiac tea once a day and mixing about 1/2 teaspoon of the powdered herbs in her food. The tumor went away and she put weight back on. She is now 15 years old and doesn't look or act like a 15 year old cat. I've continued to give her the dropper of concentrate at least once a week up to every other day. I've also given the powdered essiac herbs to our dog for allergy eye drainage that would easily get infected. Since we started the dog on this, her allergy eye problem has been gone for over a year now. Again, about 1/2 tsp once a day."

The website that Catherine from Brackettville, Texas mentions above is the correct ORIGINAL Essiac site as there is only ONE company that makes the Essiac as per nurse Rene Caisse's formula. I purchase mine from one of their distributors - All Things Healthy in NZ. They are great to deal with and reasonable on price.

My cat Ally is a 16 yr old Blue Burmese. She has a tumour in her mouth, at first it was under her chin but now has one under her jaw in her neck. The vet said it is in her soft tissue and not operable. I started her on essiac in August and the lump under her chin has disappeared but the other one hasn't yet. She had previously had 4 teeth removed which I think started the cancer feeding. I am now rubbing castor oil on it twice a day but only began this a few days ago. My problem now is that she is having trouble eating, I don't know if the tumour is getting bigger on the inside and causing her problems as she can't keep her tongue in now, it pokes out a little all the time. She had a little blood in her food and I wiped it from her mouth last night when she tried to eat but I cannot see any cause when I look in her mouth. The blood appeared from the side the tumour is on. Could the castor oil be causing this?

Does anyone have any suggestions to get her to eat so she isn't in discomfort. She can still drink fine. Any help appreciated, she is very precious to me. My email if anyone wants to reply directly is : allycat5(at)live.com.au otherwise a post on here is fine."


General Feedback

07/23/2012: Kerri from Oregon, Ohio: "Hello All: I learned Saturday that my 10 yr old mix (Golden Retriever/Border Collie) has an enlarged liver, masses/nodules on the liver & (1) 2 1/2 cm on on her spleen. Her liver panel came back okay. The vet said an area of her liver is holey/or looks like swiss cheese. The history is, she had a large sarcoma removed from her back leg in Oct 2011 & has done well up until this point. She has very little appetite, weak limbs, panting. But she has good days & bad days.

My challenge is during this past year, my vet is very against anything holistic, "natural remedies", organic, etc.. I had ordered C-Caps from Pet Remedies & my vet said not to give them to her, but I did anyway & within a few months what seemed to be masses were virtually gone & saved her from another surgery. I do have milk thistle/dandelion drops for her now. She is currently on meds from the vet & l/d soft food for a special liver diet.

These website note "to talk to your vet before giving them anything". What do you do when your vet has a history of saying no to anything but what they recommend?? I am at a loss. Chloe has an appt for a biopsy & bile acid test on Wednesday. I am trying to do a bit of research to be prepared. I have also not found a holistic vet in the Toledo, Ohio or surrounding area. Thank you all for reading. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. God Bless you all.... Thank you. Kerri (Oregon, Ohio)"

I ordered a lot of the items suggested here, such as essiac tea concentrate, shark cartilage, alkalinity drops, castor oil etc but I can't figure out how you are applying the castor oil. Are you shaving the location first or just pasting this mess onto their fur? How do you bandage this location over the fur? Do you then give them a bath everyday to keep the rugs, furniture clean? Will the castor oil be able to reach this tumor, under her pectoral muscle? Thanks for any help provided."

Glial Cell Brain Tumor Remedies

03/26/2013: Julieboolie from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, United States: "My sweet 9 year old Vizsla dog was just diagnosed with an aggressive glial cell brain tumor located in his occipital lobe. He had 5 siezures last wednesday 3/20 and after recovering from those he had an MRI and a spinal tap to determine what was going on. It is not surgically treatable and we can't afford radiation and really don't want to put him though it. We want to find something that will shrink his tumor holistically. He is really strong, and healthy otherwise. I have read about many treatments such as the Budwig diet, frankinsence, DMSO with aloe vera, essiac tea.... He is taking an anti siezure medication and steroids. The neurologist gave him 3 to 6 months to live and we are trying to be as hopeful as we can. I give him reiki about an hour per day and he also gets tong ren. I am looking to change his diet and do anything else that will help! Do you or does anyone have any suggestions?

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  07/20/2009: Renate from Auckland, New Zealand: "Spleen tumor in a dog

Hi, I hope this will be of some help to someone out there. My female German Shepherd aged 15yrs was diagnosed with a ruptured spleen tumor and given 2wks to live. She was having injections to stop her bleeding to death every few days but the vets opinion was to put her sleep. This was nearly 6mths ago. I have my girl on 'china 20C', 'ceanothus 3x', aspidosperma 30C, I also give her 1 garlic oil tablet daily, 500mg of Vit C. Her tumor shrunk to a 1/5th of its original size and she's been running around like a 6yr old dog. Unfortunately I think the cancer may have spread and the tumor looks like its has grown again so now I'm googling everything I can to see if I can find anything else to help her. Also, her diet is pretty much carb-free but I have to give her cat food in the morning to get her medication into her which probably isnt doing her any good but its better than not having her meds. If your beloved pooch has this type of cancer, please try these (her new homeopathic vet put her on these) and if you know of anything else I can try - please post it - thanks"

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  06/17/2011: Carol from Houston, Texas: "After reading an article "The One Minute Cure", I found GOE and ordered a quart. I have a paraqueet with a tumor and since she was dying, I decided to try this as a last resort. When I got the bottle, I accidentally spilled some of the HP on my hand and it burned and instantly, turned my skin white. I read this was normal so I didn't worry about it and my hand returned to normal color within a short time.

I began giving my little bird 3 drops of HP in her water and increased it daily until she was getting 40 drops... Gastly to taste, but that tumor within a couple months completely vanished. I began to cut down the dose but continued to give her the drops. Early this year, I realized that tumor was growing again so I started to increase the dose. It didn't seem to work this time so I poured the HP over my hand and realized, it was not strong anymore, my hand didn't burn or turn white. So, in early April, I reordered and the lady who took my order at Guardian of Eden told me that by keeping it for the year in my kitchen cabinet, it had lost its effectiveness because it was too warm. She said, however, I could use it to feed plants which made sense.

I began feeding my bird the new HP but it doesn't seem to be working and last week, I poured it over my hand and it was like pouring water on me... No burning, no white... So I called and the lady I spoke with said it probably had lost some of its strength and was perhaps 32% rather than 35% but to keep giving it to my bird. She also told me she was taking 17 drops a day and felt terrific, so I took 2 days of it with 3 drops and I did feel good. Whether 2 days made a difference, I don't know before I get into following this routine, I decided I wanted to talk to Don, whom I spoke with last year. He is the expert. I placed a call and anticipate a response as soon as he can, since his comments on this website indicate they are swamped with calls and cannot get back to anyone immediately.

In the meantime, my little bird continues to get 40 drops a day and actually, that tumor does look smaller. I recommend to everyone to read the article "The One Minute Cure" which I know Guardian of Eden now sells... I purchased it over a year and a half ago from another site. Hope you all get the great results I got last year and this year, once that tumor disappears, I will continue the same strength... obviously I cut the strength down too soon."
