I'm submitting a natural cure I find remarkable: Essiac. It cured my little dog of tumors, and cysts. I feel excited about it, and am trying it myself to boost immune function.

I have read everyones comments on Esiac Tea and I am very excited to hear of the results. My boxer Sadee just got diagnosed with a tumer that is attached on the side of her spine but luckily looks like it has not gone into the spinal cord because she has all of her motor functions. They are performing surgery on her this Monday. Most of the postings I have seen are with cats, is there anyone out there with dogs that has gotten good results? My other question is do you boil the tea and if so how many bags? Or is it better to do the concentrated capsules? If anybody with dogs or cats has any advice I SO APPRECIATE it!!!! She is my first dog and my heart. I now have 3 boxers but she is extra special and I will do anything to save her! My email is [email protected]
Later for the doubters of natural cures, I know some do work. My beautiful, intelligent 9 year old Westhighland White Terrier had a lump on her upper right leg about a year ago-then aged 8. The Vet did EXPENSIVE surgery, blood tests and biopsy. The diagnosis was a canine cancer which is localized-cannot recall the name right now-hermangioma something or other. The diagnosis was that she would have a re-occurence of the lump so the VET encouraged me to take her for radiation/chemotherapy or an amputation-no way, Jose! I resolved to never allow surgery on her again. Immediately next day began my pup on daily ESSIAC and nightly castor oil packs; she now has ESSIAC about twice a week. The lump has not come back-thank goodness for Nurse Caisse.
Cancer and Essiac Tea and FOCC (Flaxseed Oil and Cottage Cheese):
My boxer pit bull mix was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of his right shoulder last September. This is extremely metastastic and spreads to the lungs quickly, and in 95% of the cases, by the time of diagnosis it is already in the lungs. I initially did not amputate because he was 12-1/2 years and the vet said the prognosis was so poor. I immediately started him on 1 cup total a day of essiac tea (made by Resperin company, as research on internet said you should buy from the original company) and 1 cup total of cottage cheese a day mixed with 4 - 6 tbsp of fresh cold flaxseed oil a day, divided in 2 doses. He was still alive 5 months later which is almost impossible, but the bone tumor did not disappear and was causing him pain. I decided to amputate but docs wanted x-rays first to see if his lungs were full of cancer. There was NONE. He is a 3 legged, cancer free 13 year old happy dog today. The vets can't even explain it, and will not acknowledge it had anything to do with holistic treatments, only to say it is a fluke that it did not spread. They said he will at this point die of some other old age related dog disorder. :)

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.
About four months ago, my 14-year-old cat was diagnosed with mammary cancer. Although her prognosis was poor, I declined any conventional treatment, and instead chose to try the natural remedies from this wonderful web site. First, I started giving her Essiac 4-herb supplements: capsules mixed in with food (1/2 cap. 3x day) and the Essiac concentrate diluted with a bit of boiling water (3:1) to evaporate the alcohol level. Both were purchased at herbal-healer.com and I am infinitely grateful to Gayle from Tulsa for sharing this remedy with all of us. I administered the Essiac concentrate, approx. 1/2 to 1 eye dropper full, once per day. Within a week, I observed a significant improvement in my cat's overall health. She has gained weight, became more energetic and playful. The most exciting change I have noticed happened within the past 2 weeks: my cat's tumor began to shrink in size! It was the size of a walnut and now I can barely feel it. However, I should point out that Essiac is not the only supplement I gave to my kitty (although I feel it was the most influential). Some of the other things I started giving her daily are: fish oil, astragalus capsules, beta glucans, milk thistle capsules... all approx. 1 capsule/day in several feedings. I also give her about 1/2 of a grinded apricot kernel per day- it should be initiated with an even smaller amount to avoid toxicity, and then gradually increased...(please research this remedy for yourself and administer very carefully to avoid possible side effects!) I want to also mention the importance of changing your cat's diet to a low-carb, high protein type. Two of my cat's favorites are EVO and Wellness. Lastly, to help my kitty heal, I've switched her from tap water to spring water (to which I regularly add a few drops of liquid stabilized oxygen) and her cat litter is now also the less toxic kind, called Swheat Scoop. The amount of all these vitamins, supplements, and herbs may seem overwhelming to you at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's actually quite doable... especially when it's your beloved pet's life that we are talking about!
I wanted to share my experience with castor oil. One week ago I discovered a large lump on the throat of my dog, the size of a golf ball. Remembering I had found info about castor on your site, I quickly started aggressively applying it to the tumor. I personally have been brewing and drinking essiac tea for years. I keep the left over sludge and started putting that in my dogs food. Remarkably, the tumor is now gone. A little of a week has passed and after applying the castor oil almost 5 times a day. Thank you so much. On a side note, I have been using the oil on my face for beautiful skin, on my strained veins on my legs, which have been disppearing, and my mother in law's dog with tumors also as well as an enlarged liver, has been applying it to her dogs tumors and liver area, after a visit to the vet, the second tests showed the liver had shrunk to normal.

I cooked 2 Tablespoons of isaac tea with tablespoon Brer Rabbit Molasses put in a empty yogurt cup for my dog. I am hoping to cure two lumps in my dog.
Over 3 years ago, our cat, Flora, developed a mass (tumour) in her abdomen and lost a significant amount of weight. She was about 12 years old at the time. 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.
