Pets and Cancer – give the best chance to prevent or survive it

A Weakened Immune System Leads To Cancer…

A Strong Immune System Seeks Out and Destroys Cancer Cells

Almost half of our pets will die of cancer. That is staggering. Considering all the advancements made in the war on this insidious disease, the incidence of cancer has been on the rise for years claiming the lives of our canines and felines.

Contributing to this explosion are the excessive amounts of toxins and pollutants that are all around us and our more susceptible pets and that tax the immune system. Included is poor quality food that’s full of pesticides; chemicals; and chlorinated and fluoridated water. According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, “Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.” According to the National Toxicology Program, “the preponderance of evidence” from laboratory in vitro studies indicates that fluoride is a mutagen, meaning a compound that can cause genetic damage. Electromagnetic contributors are also included among the challenges that weren’t here 200 years ago to weaken the immune system, while altering the internal environment of the body and rendering conducive the creation of too many free radicals and excessive numbers of cancerous cells.

What can you do? Make every attempt to prevent it in the first place.

If the worst should happen, treat it with not only the conventional means (surgery, radiation, chemotherapy) but nutritionally at the source where things went wrong. Natural supplements won’t hurt. They can only help. They won’t make chemotherapy or radiation therapy less effective but will amplify the power of the cancer treatments, attacking cancer by supporting the health of the body and immune system.

If there is one thing we have learned for certain, diet plays an important role in maintaining healthy cell structure and the ability for the body to repair damaged cells.

Generally speaking, when the subject of fast food enters our conversation we are not referring to the highest of quality nutrition. We may eat it from time to time, but we realize it is not what will allow us to be healthy if that is the continuous basis for our diet. You will survive but you would be putting your quality of life and health at risk if you consume poor quality nutrition over the long run.

The poor quality pet foods are the equivalent of your companion having fast foods day in and day out. They can survive but you are increasing their risk for disease and a shortened life span, along with additional medical expense.

What you think is more expensive is proven time and again to be the best value in the long run. Always feed the very best balanced quality you can. A premium quality holistic diet void of artificial colors and including only natural preservatives should be the standard to use. Some dogs and cats thrive on a raw food diet, with the proper precautions. Their digestive system was designed to process raw food so this is a great option.

When cooked, irradiated and processed food is eaten, the enzymes have been killed; the food does not predigest in the upper stomach; when it reaches the lower stomach the pancreas must make extra enzymes to try to break down the food. Partially digested food is treated as a toxin, causing the immune system to try to get rid of it. This puts an additional strain on the already overworked immune system. Studies show the immune system treats the ingestion of cooked food as a toxin causing white blood cells to increase in an attempt to get rid of it as fast as possible. The result is the food is only partially digested.

This makes giving a good quality enzyme supplement with meals very important.

Cancer cells thrive on carbohydrates and proteins; refined carbohydrates digest quickly metabolizing like sugar, and cancer cells love sugar. Carbohydrates feed the cancer, but the cancer can’t grow as fast with fats. Certain veterinary diets have been designed for this, but you can also make your own low carbohydrate, high-fat cancer diet.

In cats, vaccine associated sarcoma is a very real risk. When it comes to our dogs, the vaccines continually stimulate the immune system, and to an older dog this may bring on unintended consequences of cancer. Only vaccinate your pet for diseases it is likely to get if not vaccinated, and only give the vaccine boosters as often as needed. As a generality, most pets can likely go without ANY vaccines past the age of 10

As with people, regular exercise is important for your pet and will help prevent cancer. It keeps the body weight lower, and causes the release of relaxing stress hormones, called endorphins.

Next to diet, THE most important thing is a quality supplement for your pet’s diet. The Omega 3 essential fatty acids should be added to EVERY pet’s diet; in fact, FATTY ACIDS ARE Of VITAL IMPORTANCE AND ESSENTIAL. Omega 3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatories shown to prevent the spread of cancer.

Flax is the best source for dogs. For cats, the liquid form is the only option, and they should receive it twice daily, in the form of salmon oil or a supplement such as EFA caps, which can be purchased from your veterinarian.

FLAVONOIDS. These are compounds in a class of their own. They are antioxidants as well as having anti-cancer properties. These include flavones (apigenin), isoflavones (genistein), and flavanols (quercitin). Purchase a mixed bioflavonoid product that contains polyphenols, particularly EGCG (epigallocatechin-gallate), which is the specific flavonoid isolated from green tea.

ANTIOXIDIZE. Antioxidants have been shown to slow the growth and spread of some types of cancer. Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Selenium are the most effective ones.

BOVINE COLOSTRUM. Colostrum is so complex and the benefits are so exciting and widespread we are only beginning to understand how it all works and all the beneficial possibilities. Scientific studies reveal colostrum may help prevent certain types of cancers and….
