Cancer Diet

Post  northernwitch on 2/10/2011, 3:25 pm

A couple of people have asked for this diet so I figured I'd post it here. It came to me in email form and that's how I saved it. The dog being discussed was a husky mix (I think)--in any case, a bigger dog. I scaled everything down for Pete. Some of it I did and some I didn't--I didn't go with dairy as he couldn't tolerate it.

I was also very low dose on the vit. C as it can blow out a dog's gut and I increased it very, very slowly. I ultimately ended up using a senior dog multi-vitamin as that worked best for me and for Pete in terms of dosage.

It is a bit complicated, but I modified it to suit our needs best....

Ok, basically the food deal is as little fat as possible, NO sugar (no fruit even, nothing, sugar feeds the cancer cells) and no chemicals. Nothing with white flour in it as white flour used in crackers, cookies, etc. turns to sugar in the body. One day is organic meat (I tried to use chicken or turkey which must be soaked for 1-1/2 hours in FOOD GRADE hydrogen peroxide bought at the health food store. You can NOT reuse it once you have soaked the meat. The meat must be covered or you need to turn the meat to be sure both sides get about one hour. Then you thoroughly rinse the meat under running water before using it for the dog), the next is 1/2 fresh veggies and 1/2 meat and the third is rice or millet with yogurt.
There are two schools of thought in human macrobiotic cancer care. one says no dairy, the other is more lenient and, of course, this does not take into account the differences in physiology between humans and dogs. Jess, however, did not do well on dairy, so we tended to be of the no dairy camp. It was hard to get Jess to eat plain rice or millet alone so we had one meat day, one meat and veggies day and one day with just a little meat and rice or millet. The veggies we used were carrots (though carrot juice is preferred by the vet), kale, spinach, broccosprouts, yams, and squash. To get all the supplements in we fed Jess twice a day.
Sea Veggies are considered a MUST by both human and animal cancer specialists, soak them and cut them up real small so the dog won't notice. Get her to eat as much as possible. Jess got 3/4 to 1 cup a day.(buy them at the health food store where they are sold dried.
The other supplements that went into her food (divided up between two meals)were:
200 mg. COQ10
6 caps of burdock 400 mg.
Essiac (available at health food stores) Don't get the tea, she'll never drink it, get the essiac tonic, the stuff I used is made by a company called the Herbalist.
4 capsules of Maitake extract (This is Carol - I'd recommend that instead you use the Bio Beta Glucan Maitake liquid as it's more potent)
Vitamin C 6000 to 10,000 mg. a day
I did the fish oil deal I think I got from you. 10 caps twice daily, with a vitamin e supplement once a week. Most vets recommend vit e daily 400mg. You have to make the choice here.
Green tea extract - adult dose on bottle (these formulas vary, get a strong one as possible.
Flax oil (Omegaflo or like) - A tablespoon in each meal.
Green food - Get at health food stores. Has spirulina, barley grass, etc. Give adult dose.
In addition to all this, she also got hecla lava, 6C dose 10-15 grains once daily. You can get this through a homeopathic vet. After I originally started with Jess, her tumor went down quickly. I continued to give it to her when there was no visible sign of her tumor as a preventive. DON'T DO THIS! You really want to find a good homeopathic vet (as well as a good oncologist) in your area to monitor your dog's progress.
In addition to all of this 3 times a day she got (on an empty stomach, one hour before meals) Noni juice (she liked this and it seemed to make her feel better), Intenzyme forte, IP-6 Adult dose, (available through Vitamins.com) is an immune system booster, and colostrum. I don't know that I thought the colostrum helped, by it has a lot of anecdotal support. (This is Carol again. I wouldn't use IP-6 or colostrum. I'd stick with the Immunocal instead. We got no good results using IP-6 on a few cancer dogs who tried it.)
I know this is a lot but I do know that what she ate made her feel better, and everyone commented on how well she was aging, not knowing she had cancer, so I do think it had an effect. Let me again stress that I think it's best to have an oncologist and homeopathic vet working together. With Jess, as with many nasal tumors, it was simply inoperable and this type of cancer (I was told) responds well only when surgery and chemo are used together.
Supplements are cheaper through Vitamins.com I've found.

I've been preparing Buster's - and now Bud's - food using the cancer diet guidelines written by Lew Olson, author of "Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs", which is sort of along the same lines as what you've posted, Blanche. You can read up on it here too:

The holistic vet that Buster sees for acupuncture & Chinese herbs was very pleased with it & just said, "keep doing what you're doing".

Pretty much, Bella. I used the Holistic Blend Seagreens Powder as it covered off a number of items in one scoop.

I also gave 3 to 4 times the dosage of fish oil recommended on the bottle--I use Noble Herring Oil. It's a decent immune support.

the other thing to look into is a product by Centaur VA called Onco-Support. I think you have to get it from your vet, but I've heard good things about it from other folks.
