Hi Ted, I have a couple of questions. I follow Dr. Christopher's herbal remedies. I have a cat with an abdominal mass, I have been giving her Essiac Tea but she started having diarrhea. What other cures do you recommend?
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.
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.
Friday, 9/7/2007. I Have a "Question" and an "EMERGENCY NEED" to contact "Gayle"... (ESSIAC TEA 12/31/2006: Gayle from Tulsa, OK)! Can you "PLEASE" contact her for me and give her my email add.? I have a 14 year old CAT (Patches) in critical condition. Her Vet can not operate, and expects me back "SOON"... to "put her to sleep". They don't call it, what it really is! (Taking Her Life!) I "Must Know" QUICKLY: Which version of ESSIAC TEA, she used for her CAT. "4 Herb" or "8 Herb" and specifically, "WHICH HERBS" are in it! One Version has "RED CLOVER" in it, which can be "FATAL" to "CATS"! Patches is just to precious... to just give up on, and not even try to save her. And I fully believe: She can be saved by the ESSIAC TEA and other natural means - if I can just get it in her "A.S.A.P."!!! PLEASE HELP ME - SAVE MY PATCHES! I, NEED HER!!!

EC: Sorry, we wish we had Gayle's email address to contact her -- she never sent it!
I have both a cat and a dog with tumors. I was reading the posts to try and find help for them. I came across the posts on Essiac and the request for info on where to find Essiac without red clover. Here's what I found http://www.essiac-canada.com/index.htm. I will be ordering some and let you know the results.
EC: Catherine, just out of curiosity, what brand of dog and cat food are you feeding your pets?
In answer to Ginger and Jay, I use the 4-Herb capsules and 4-Herb Liquid Concentrate from Herbal Healer - www.herbalhealer.com
I'm so sorry that I did not see your posts until this late date and did not provide an e-mail address for you to contact me. I hope that you found help elsewhere before this.

Hi Gayle from Tulsa. I am going to try this route. My 10 1/2 year old Annie has a huge mass in her stomach. Blood tests normal, xrays show large mass. Her behavior is fine, she has lost weight, and throws up her food and goes to the bathroom number 2 on my bathroom floor. Peas in her litter box. I want to help her but will not give the vets any more money especially 500 for an ultrasound. They tell me that I have a long road ahead even if i find out what it is exactly. I want to save my beautiful Annie. What food are you feeding the cat? I currently feed her kd and a natural frozen food from whole foods. How often should I give her the tea and for how long? Should I order a lot? Please get back to me ASAP, so i can help my little one. She is in no pain either. Thanks so much. [email protected]

I just ordered the Essiac concentrate & the herbal pills from Herbal Academy for my cat who has a large growing mass alongside his neck. I have tried many other things, nothing has helped. The castor oil thing is too hard to try in this area. I tried for a few days. He is an uncontrollable psycho to do things too, even just pills, sometimes. Hope this can be of help to someone. The liquid concentrate is a huge bottle & I ordered the smallest one, maybe not so huge if treating a dog, tho.

My 12 year old cat Molly has a tumor up her nose and is losing her sight. I have read about Essiac Tea. As I live in England I don't know where to purchase this. I am really desperate to try Essiac Tea, could you please help if you have any information about it and where I can purchase it from. I would be very grateful for your help. The vet says it might not be possible to operate to remove the tumor as it is uo her nose and if it get any larger I would have to put her to sleep. I really do not want it to come to this as she is so precious to me.

Hi Christine, I have sent you an email about where to get Essiac but wanted to post on this site as well. 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.
ingredients for Essiac Tea.
- Burdock Root.
- Slippery Elm (inner bark)
- Sheep Sorrel.
- Indian Rhubarb Root.
You can buy these herbs online and mix it yourself.
Mix equal parts of each herb and brew it-put in the refrigerator overnight and start using it the next day after straining it.
Hope this helps.
Hi I thank you for the good report! How did you get the concentrated essiac tea? Boiling it down?
Like 3 tbls in a cup of water boiled to 1/4 cup?
regarding : Essiac
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.
My personal favorite source of Essiac is Mountain Rose Herbs.
Essiac Tea, Hydrogen Peroxide
I have a 7 year old mixed breed dog that has a tumor on her mouth. She also had a large fatty type tumor on her chest. I have changed her diet and have included turmeric, Essiac tea, and food grade hydrogen peroxide. She's been on the diet for 2 weeks with the tea and hydrogen peroxide for a week. The fatty tumor on her chest is almost gone, but the mouth tumor has increased in size. How long does the tea and peroxide take to work? I don't want to end up having to take her in for emergency surgery.
Essiac, Turmeric, Famotidine, Diphenhydramine
in June of 2022 I took my older dog, Ruby to the vet because I thought she had ingested something in the garage left by the handy man. on x-raying her stomach, the vet found a tumor on her spleen. upon further x-ray, looking to see if the cancer had spread to other organs, multiple lesions were found on her lungs (odd, I thought, since she had no coughing, shortness of breath, low energy, etc). but I saw the lesions on the x-ray. the Vet gave her 2 months at the outside. I took her home and did a little research. I started her on diphenhydramine 25mg twice a day with famotadine 10mg twice a day (I looked up the dosages online, according to her weight). The same with Essiac Tea, also by weight, twice a day. and Turmeric by weight, again twice a day. It is now January 2023 and she is going strong, energy, no symptoms!
Osteosarcoma: Fenben+Vitamin C+CBD+Cucuremen
I am helping my niece with alternative remedies for her Rottweiler "Spike" who has Osteosarcoma. 9 year old + 134 lbs. He has a tumor on his leg that we are treating with 60 PPM Colloidal Silver soaked gauze secured in place with adhesive ace bandages. He is cooperative for daily bandage changes. We have begun administering Fenben (222mg) capsules, with Vitamin C, Cucuremin, CBD oil. Day 5 we are noticing that his energy to "play" even with a bum leg, is improving. We are increasing the Fenben to 4 capsules (222mgx4) for 3 days on and 4 days off but keeping him on the remaining supplements. Beautiful new skin growth on the leg. We are going to speak with his Vet about the treatment and have found several medical studies indicating that within 48 hours of beginning Fenben, Cancer cell death is happening. From what I am reading, cell die off begins immediately. Fenben is not allowing the cells to uptake sugar and weakening the cell walls of the Cancer. We are going to ask the Vet to monitor Spike's liver levels to make sure that we are not consistently exposing it to Fenben without respite - 4 days off should help. Can anyone recommend anything else that we could be doing to help Spike along and help his vet understand that we have nothing to lose in trying this remedy? We need more Professionals to get on board with alternative treatments so we can save more lives without Chemo/Radiation.
For the leg tumor, if you make the mix 50% DMSO and 50% of the 60 ppm CS, you may get better transdermal penetration enhancement into the tumor and DMSO itself has anticancer effects which should offer synergy with the CS.
I forgot to mention that if he can tolerate melatonin without getting too sleepy, you can dissolve melatonin powder in the DMSO before you mix the DMSO and CS together. Melatonin will dissolve in the pure DMSO and then the CS can be added once the melatonin is dissolved.
Melatonin is a potent anticancer agent through multiple pathways. If it makes him sleepy, you will know that it has gone systemic, which is good if he has cancer elsewhere. Melatonin will also help protect his liver and kidneys from cancer and the negative effects of other substances you are using as well as chemotherapy and radio therapy if needed.
I have started using one to two drops of 100 percent pure frankincense oil mixed with about 20 drops of organic cold pressed coconut oil. It is supposed to shrink tumours. I have noticed the tumour is starting to change to a slightly brown colour. Has anyone else tried this remedy for tumours?
Garlic, Vitamin C
My Australian Shepherd age 8 has a growth on her tummy. Vet said it was like diggie breast cancer and would cost 600. to remove it. It grew within a week though on abdomen from a tennis ball size to double which worried me beyond words..then she developed a growth on back of one leg size of a golf ball. We have had her since a baby and don't want to lose her. I have been giving her excess garlic daily and excess vitamin c as read so much on research saying both are great at killing cancer cells. Her growths seem to have stopped now. I go through a bottle of rexall dollar general type vit c chewables 500 mg each and rexall garlic 500 mg soft gel pills which she gobbles up them alone and vitamin c so I am thinking they are giving her releif as she will walk to table when wants some. Her spirits are great and no signs of distress. The turmeric and castor oil though has me curious if it would work on her since growth is on abdomen where vital organs are.. could I just give her turmeric pills? or is it a risk?
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 searched for holistic vets in Ohio, and found this list (not sure if any of these are in your area):
Use the advanced search option to search for vets in Ohio. Once you get the list, you could call some of them and see if they know of any in your area.
I also contacted my own holistic vet here in Columbus, Ohio. While they do not know of any vets right now in Toledo, they let me post their website for you. They also said that you could call them. Here is their site:
My 11 year old cocker poo has a rock hard fatty tumor on her chest, under her pectoral muscles and pressing on her shoulder joint. Vet says to wait because surgery in that particular location is terribly difficult. She's a therapy dog and so special to me and others and I hate to see her in this much pain. 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
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? It is scary and any help, insight or suggestions would be amazing! Thank you!!!!

Sorry to hear about your dog.
Try Turmeric -you prepare it with coconut oil and a pinch of Cayenne Pepper. Cayenne is great for shrinking tumors.
Don't feed commercial food. Give some home cooked food with vegetables like carrots or broccoli.
Black seed oil is a cure all and you can buy it on line.
Honey (organic) is beneficial for seizures.
Put a few drops of Apple Cider Vinegar in drinking water.
For brain tumor, I would try a cancer supplement called onco x plus lots of boswellia. The blood brain barrier blocks many herbs but boswellia crosses and attacks brain tumors. Boswellia also is a powerful anti inflammatory. Control of brain inflammation is very important. Doctors give steroidal anti-inflammatories for that. This is a huge problem since steroids feed the mycoplasma infection that often drives brain tumors. Look up the ketogenic diet / brain cancer. I don't know if this diet has similar effects on dogs as it does on humans but for humans it works really well on brain cancer. MSM would be good as an anti inflammatory and a super hot one gallium nitrate has powerful anticancer properties to it.
Currently using turmeric with cayenne pepper mixed with food to hopefully heal a mass. Actually got the idea here. Also came across the idea of using black cumin seed oil as it has so many positive benefits. Was wondering if anyone knew about any dangers of combining the two as they are both in the cumin family & I don't want the combination to result in overdose or overuse. I do add a little organic apple cider vinegar to her water..just a few drops and other then that she takes her regular vitamins (all natural). I just worry that too many herbs or natural anything can be bad if combined wrong. Also the recommended dosages if combining the two is okay. Going on my second full week using the turmeric & have yet to see any results, or shrinkage..anyone who knows anything possibly going through the same experience please leave a comment all advice is welcome. Thank you.
I would add CBD oil in your regimen to help with the seizures while you are treating the tumor... if cannabis is legal in your state medicinally, I would add the THC/CBD oil so that your baby benefits from the THC working to kill the cancer cells, and the CBD helping to keep the seizures at bay!! Praying!!
Homeopathy, Garlic Oil
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
I don't see a way that I can be notified when someone answers this. Also I don't see honey on the list of remedies.
My cat has had a tumor or cyst for over two years and have been trying to find something that works and had found nothing. I read somewhere about honey packs. When I read that a bee keeper said that the only thing that will kill cancer is honey. What that bee keeper said stuck in my mind and tried to use the honey but the growth is in such a spot that I couldn't get anything to hold it in place and every time I wrapped it the cyst would fall out of the bandage.
Anyway the growth didn't shrink when I tried the honey and read that the use of plastic or metal touching the honey would effect its efficacy and the honey had to be unheated. My honey was definitely contaminated if that story was true. I would have to start with a new jar. I called the same company that made my raw honey and asked if it was unheated.They assured me that it is. So my friend brought some back from New Jersey where he works last Thursday night September 15,2016.
To make a long story short, after 72 hours of slathering this honey twice a day and securing it with an Ace bandage for two hours on this growth, which was hanging from her chest, it had reduced 80%.
That was last night at 3 am. This morning it had enlarged some but no where near the size it had been Thursday when I started. I was told to use silver in the honey and a friend said that the baby spoons we found was plate.
My method: I was afraid to use the spoon so I poured the honey onto a 2x4" gauze pad but first used my finger to spread some on because growth was thicker than the depth of the honey.
I just thought that someone may need to hear this information before it is conclusive and the entire growth completely terminated.
I thought that if I could use DMSO to allow the honey to penetrate deep into the skin it would work better. I also purchased DMSO. When I read the label that stopped me from using with the honey until I had more research. So that bee keeper may be correct. Will soon find out.
That said nothing has worked even close to what the honey has done to shrink this growth. I am amazed.
I will continue to use this. I just wanted to post it so that others in fear of what to do for their animals can run with it and relate what their results.
DMSO carries whatever its mixed with to the cells. Important because you have to make sure area is clean n free of harmful chemicals. Before n after application. Read the label. I located my jar at the local Rural King back by the horse supplies. I've yet to use it. Wanted to try the food grade hydrogen peroxide on my dogs tumor.
I had read about food grade hydrogen peroxide on the Earth Clinic site, while researching natural remedies for animals as my Maine coon Kitty had a pea size tumor under his jaw that had grown to the size of a marble. I was very low on funds at the time and couldn't afford a vet visit, so I crossed my fingers, went to the health food store, bought some 35% food grade H202 and put a capful in his water bowl.
To my amazement the tumor disappeared after about two weeks. He's been tumor free ever since and I now drink it in my water. It's a Godsend.
Cats often get Acne on their chin which can get as large as a marble. If you didn't have it biopsied to actually tell if it's a tumor it was probably just a cysts or acne pimple.My cat used to get them until I read never to use plastic bowls or dishes to feed your animals.Since I replaced her dish and water bowl with glass, no more bumps on her chin.
My girl friend has a Bernice Mountain dog who got cancer. He is about 8 yrs old. The vet said he will be dead in 3 months due to the tumor on his leg. 98% percent of these dogs die of cancer. It is now 3 1/2 months later the dog is VERY much alive...... Lots of energy. We sprayed HP 5-6 times a day directly on the tumor( it shrunk and and looks dead). Also we gave him green veggies ( partially cooked) and add it to his food/water (worked up to 8 cap fulls each day; 4 in the morning, 4 in the afternoon with meals and water). I hope this helps many of you.
