Cancer and Animlas: Part 1

By Ava Frick, DVM


One of the most feared words to an animal owner is “cancer.”  We know what it has done to family and friends and we cringe at the thought of that happening to our dear animals.  The word rings with emotions of pain, helplessness, hopelessness, and sooner than later the inevitable, death.

What happens when an animal (or person) has a terminal disease, such as cancer, is that the body is very acidic and anaerobic internally, and loaded with parasites.  These are not the typical worms that you are familiar with from running fecals and doing worming programs.  There are many other parasites where the body may not be the end host.  Why are these other parasites there in the first place?  These are attracted to an anaerobic and acid environment.  They are there to eat the various acid waste products; mucus, dead bacteria or fungus, mildew residue, dead skin cells, dead white and red blood cells, etc.  The parasites provide a vital service of eating the garbage of the body!

How did these other foreigners get into the body to start with?  The environment became inviting because the immune system was weak.  The body’s defense mechanism was impaired because of the poor electrical conductivity in and between the cells, and the misplacement or inability to absorb minerals.   Alteration in mineral balance leads to vitamin imbalances

Chemotherapy and radiation are medical approaches that can be effective with variable results and may extend life longer than no treatment at all.  As a human we get coached as to what to expect so that we are prepared for the effects of nausea, pain, weakness, anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.  We have a concept of what is to come and are braced for it.  Our animals cannot have the luxury of choice and do not know why, when we are trying to save them, they feel so lousy.  That places even more emotional stress on us, the loving caring owner.

Other less toxic options are available, also with variable results but lacking the ill effects.    More and more the medical industry is viewing other cancer therapy modalities as viable options.  It really should be about personal choice, not a mandate.  These other approaches include optimizing nutrition, homeopathy, herbal remedies, blood root formulations, flower essences, a calm environment, reduced stress, music, mild exercise (what the body can enjoy), massage and chiropractic to keep circulation and motion flowing.
