Essiac Tea for Cancer in Pets

First, I wish to thank each person who has had success with Essiac Tea and reported it here on Earth Clinic. I say that because my little Honey Bee, part Chihuahua, was diagnosed with a malignant mast cell tumor on her left thigh over a month ago. The vet wanted to operate, but said she'd prefer that I take her to the vet school because some of the tumor is inside her thigh muscle. I called the school, and they said they were booked out two months on such surgeries. That's when I turned to Earth Clinic and read about several remedies for cancer.

I decided on Essiac Tea and chaga mushroom. I started her right away and also added something I take to boost my immune system called Epicor. Epicor is fermented brewer's yeast (which sounds weird since I would think all brewer's yeast ends up fermented, doesn't it? :-) I think there is a little more to it, but anyway, it really works! I used to get colds and flus like clockwork every year, about three times and some would last for weeks. I hated being sick and dragging around, which is why I finally discovered Epicor. I have not had one bout of a cold or flu in six or seven years! Yay!! So, I decided if it works by boosting the immune system, why not add it to the mix.

Then, today, I decided to see what I could learn about Essiac and ended up on Wikipedia where, to my alarm, whoever submitted the information Wikipedia has on Essiac Tea couldn't find one good thing to say about it! I could feel myself getting uptight and also confused since I have been pleased with what I am seeing on Honey Bee's leg. I swear it sure looks like the "lump" is smaller and, when I palpate it, I can't even find anything that feels like a lump. It's like the skin was stretched and is sagging a little but there's nothing in there! In addition, Honey Bee has never felt so good! She's running around all happy and just as feisty as ever when another dog has the gall to jump up on "her" couch! But, still, I was really getting worried reading that jive so I came right over to EC and, ahhhh!, here are these wonderful testimonies to the ability of Essiac Tea to reduce or even eliminate cancer!

I just needed to read them again. I plan to take Honey Bee back to my vet at the two month mark and have an x-ray so we can do a legitimate comparison. In the meantime, thank you, thank you for your stories of success with Essiac. I believe them! As for the amounts I am using, I have the Essiac capsules from Canada and I've been giving her, she's about sixteen pounds, half a capsule in the morning and the other half in the evening. I'm giving close to a quarter teaspoon of chaga mushroom a.m. and p.m. and half of a 500 mg capsule of Epicor in the a.m., the rest of the capsule in the p.m.

Aloe Vera for Constipation in Pets

Aloe Vera for Constipation in Pets

Since aloe vera is one of those remedies that can cause some confusion, here is a clear explanation that I find helpful:

"When you open an aloe vera leaf, you will see that it has a clear center which is the aloe gel. The plant also has a white or yellow colored substance located around the edges, beneath the aloe leaf's surface. This portion of the plant is the aloe latex, and the latex contains a natural chemical named aloin. Aloin can be toxic to animals. It has a laxative effect, so it can cause diarrhea and irritate the intestines, leading to electrolyte loss. Also, if an animal has a latex allergy, aloin can cause skin irritation. When this occurs, the skin will turn red after coming into contact with the aloin.

To reap the benefits and avoid any possible toxic effects, pet owners just need to make sure the latex part of the aloe vera plant has been removed during processing. To ensure a product is free of aloin, the label should state that it contains only the gel of the aloe vera plant I.e. the inner fillet. Avoid labels stating “whole leaf” since products would then include the latex substance that contains the aloin. Fortunately, most products on the market have removed the latex part of the plant."

I'm going through the same issue with my 8 and a half years old Great Dane. I'm giving her 2000 mg of Vit C with Manuka honey and 2000 mg of Turmeric 3 times a day with 2000 mg of garlic twice a day and Yunnan Baiyao 2 pills 2 twice a day. She is leaking out a lot of fluid and blood. But I'm force feeding her at the same time. Brown rice, carrots, green beans and chicken breast. Also giving her rebound (it's available on Amazon)

URGENT! Vitamin C, Turmeric, Manuka Honey for Open Pyometra in Dog

Hi guys I need some help,

My 9 year old Great Dane Daisy was diagnosed with Open Pyometra on Thursday and was having discharge a week before that, the vet suggested to put her down because it will probably close and the antibiotics will most likely not work, and she already had surgery to remove a benign breast tumor 7 months ago but was fine until she had been diagnosed with this.

Yesterday morning my dad and I were going to have her put down because she had blood puddle on bed and she wasn't getting up. Until I found this recipe, and I bought all specific ingredients, I gave it to her twice and the first time she was already getting better and in a better mood playing with her toys and getting up to eat food, but she is still drinking was a lot.

She is acting pretty normal but the discharge she is having now, mostly looks bloody, but I'm not sure? it's pretty red but not thick but it comes out kind of steady and then stops. I smelled it and it has no smell and her discharge had a rotten smell two days ago and he gave her a turmeric pill on Sunday and that's when he woke up to the blood on his bed but it was like a mix. She fills up the pads but she's acting pretty normal and starting to be her normal self, I really can't afford the vet, what should I do?

is this part of the process of the treatment working? I'm afraid to go to sleep tonight worried about her.

  Re: Boric Acid Vs Borax for Dogs

No, they are not the same. Boric acid is created from the mixture of borax with other naturally occurring minerals such as boracite and colemanite. God only knows what those two minerals are and what type of chemical reaction would happen in the process of combining them together. My dogs will never be subjected to it. This information comes from the 20 Mule Team site.

I wouldn't give peas to my dog, they are legumes and are suspect to contributing to DCM (heart problems).

Thank you, Mama. I will check Amazon. Ordered some freeze-dried rse food which will also help. Can't wait to give her some relief after two years with me and many trips to the vet. Thank you.

Thank you Jgny

Yes, I do apply coconut oil which helps a little but with her itching herself on the carpet comes with issues. Would like to find a possible allergy fix. I am going to try the freeze dried food but also continue with the Coconut oil. Thank you.

Darth's lump has almost stopped oozing, and I am keeping his neck clean with a warm cloth. Giving him his food he's eating more often, and giving him more Karo syrup. And lots of rest. I'm also putting triple antibiotic ointment on his hole so it does not get infected.

And most of all lots of prayers.
