Blackwatch Feed Program for Cancer
Editorial Comment: Due to FDA regulations, they are tightening up on individuals who sell holistic products and as you know, the big drug companies lobby Washingto DC and are trying to get control over the holistic health care industry and nutritional supplements. I have removed one of the suppments from this page, so not to draw attention to this product. If you read this article it will explain about the uses for Cancer.
Please note, the majority of the supplements suggested here can be purchased from First Choice Naturals.com However, unlike many of the Blackwatch Feed Programs that come in a Kit format, this program does not because it is too hard to determine the amount of product needed for each pet based on their weight. Only the owner can figure out what is needed based on the dosages in this article.
They are available through www.firstchoicenaturals.com - call for specific information. 1-765-284-8288
NOTE: All of the products suggested can be use together with the Blackwatch Feed Program for Cancer Support and any with meds your pet is currently on.
UPDATE 2011 : This is a supplement for humans and for pets (different labeling) that is an absolute MUST for anyone with Cancer going through chemo and/or radiation to prevent cellular DNA damage. Note in the instructions that come with this that it can't be given at the same time as Graviola and must be alternated if you are using both products.
IF I HAD A PET WITH CANCER
Of all the Feed Programs I have developed over the years for my buyers, the most difficult one to design for my own dogs would be the Feed Program for Cancer Support. This program is designed to support the body by giving it the building blocks necessary to try and fight cancer at a cellular level, and minimize free radical damage. This is also a supplement program to help get through the cancer treatment, one to lessen the ravages of chemo and radiation and free radical damage. I developed a nutritional program for my own father's lung cancer and it was successful for him, as well as others who were going through this process. So in this article I will talk about food and supplement suggestions and protocols that others have shared with me, that have provided considerable success. I will also include links to websites that offer support.
A quality diet is critical for a dog with cancer, especially for the best possible outcome, you need to provide the absolute best foods and nutrients you can find, to support the body while fighting this battle. I have heard that people or pets rarely die of cancer itself, it is normally because they succumb to secondary problems such as liver or kidney failure from chemo and radiation's side effects, which in most cases can be avoided by controlling the diet and supporting the body nutritionally to minimize free radical damage.
FREE RADICAL DAMAGE
I am going to write this for the lay person, because it is more important to understand the definition of Free Radicals (Oxidative Stress) than it is to know the chemistry behind it, at least for now. You can look that up on a google search.
Daily our bodies are bombarded with toxins and pollutants through the environment directly, the food and water we consume, alcohol, smoking, preservatives in food, processed foods, sodas, pesticides, cleaners, exhaust and simply the air we breathe. These toxins are neutralized or gobbled up by antioxidants - a term we are familiar with. Now, our bodies produce their own antioxidants, which neutralize these toxins, provided we eat the right foods and/or consume the right supplements when our diets fall short. It is best to have a good cross section of antioxidants in our foods, rather than just large doses of one antioxidant, so variety is important in our diet for this reason. Too much of a good thing in this case gives just the opposite effect by over saturating our cells with one antioxidant causing a pro-oxidant effect. Free Radicals are the by-products of our daily bodily functions and we must cleanse them from our cells in order to repair the body. We do so by eating a variety of healthy foods and use whole food supplements as back up support.
The 4 Points of Support
1). Alter pH of the Body. - Reverse Acidosis - Poor diet, stress, antibiotics, anger, and bitterness puts the body into an acidic environment. Bad bacteria, virus and fungus can take over causing the body numerous diseases. It is very important for health to maintain your body's pH balance.
Wellspring is a purified, concentrated source of electron-rich alkaline ions and minerals. It turns water into a powerful antioxidant. Add one ounce to a gallon of pure water. The resulting water enhancer can promote health in countless ways by combating the effects of the overly acidic modern diet (www.wysong.net).
Mix 1 ounce into a gallon of water and use for the dogs drinking water.
Consult your doctor if you have renal, diabetic or adrenal conditions, have abnormal potassium or calcium levels, are taking any medications, or are pregnant/lactating. Not for use in children.
When fighting cancer, the first and foremost concern is to boost immune function so the body can help fight this battle. This can be addressed with supplements that work synergistically- to reduce tumors naturally and boost immune function.One of the most effective ways to do this is using K9 Transfer Factor and K9 Immunity together.
K 9 Transfer Factor is a companion product, in a chewable wafer, designed to go with the K9 Immunity product for dogs with cancer. Transfer Factors are compounds produced in the body which are required for proper immune system functioning. All mammals make these transfer factors, but often time in cancer, the body's ability to manufacture sufficient Transfer Factors is impaired. K9 Transfer Factor is a specially formulated canine grade supplement for use with K-9 Immunity for increasing immune function. By itself, K9 Transfer Factor does not have much influence in the outcome of canine cancer. But its real value is in the way it enhances the absorption and bioavailability of the immune modulators in the K-9 Immunity. And it is in an easy to feed liver flavored wafer, containing the anti-cancer compounds IP6 and SOD in addition to the Transfer Factors for maximum effectiveness. NOTE: Each 3000 mg of liver flavored chewable wafer contains 400 mg of actual Transfer Factor.
1 lbs to 24 lbs = ½ wafer
3) Destroy The Cancer Cells :
It contains the most widely used anticancer compounds in the world: PSK, PSP and Lentinan, as well as nearly 200 other closely related heteropolysaccharide immunomodulator compounds. It is available in the USA and most other countries without a prescription. K-9 Immunity is a daily supplement derived from all natural, all 100% certified organic sources. And it is made in America to the highest pharmaceutical standards.
Consider incorporating K-9 Immunity, into your treatment regiment. K-9 Immunity is a serious supplement that your vet should consider adding to the course of therapy he or she is recommending for treatment of your dog's cancer. First Choice Naturals, Inc. tries to make available to you the best supplements to promote wellness and longevity for our pets. This product is certified Organic mushrooms. Dosage: 1 capsule (500 mg) per 10 lbs of body weight
4). Detoxify (clean out) the Toxins:
Nzymes can be purchase in a 2 lb container of granular or chewable pet treats and the K9 Immunity and Transfer Factor comes from FirstChoiceNaturals.com - where you can write or call for help and questions - 1-765-284-8288
THE INFO ABOVE IS THE BACKBONE OF THE CANCER PROGRAM, NOW LET'S LOOK AT FOODS THAT YOU CAN FEED AND OTHER SUPPLEMENTS YOU CAN USE TO ENHANCE THE DIET.
Blackwatch Feed Program for Cancer Support
Foods: - the general principle here is to have a high protein, moderatly high fat diet with less grains/carbs. The food you use should be HOLISTIC and not of the Super Premium Level.
If you want to feed a grain free:
The Grain Free food I like are Precise Holistic Complete Grain Free foods because they are done in moderation with normal levels of calicum and super quality of ingredients. The adult formulas is 26%-27% protein and 14%16% fat both are ideal for cancer and diabetic dogs.
Precise Holistic Complete Small/Med breed puppy and adult - regardless of age or the breed - because we want a higher protein/fat diet for cancer situations..so forget the title small - medium and go with it for the levels of fat and protein.
The Precise Endurence and Precise Competetion formulas will work as well.
If you want to feed a totally raw diet:
You can use a combination of kibble and Honest Kitchen Embark and/or http://www.darwinspet.com Diets Raw Meat. Example: 80% kibble and 20% raw or 80% kibble and 20% dehydrated fruits and veggies. This provides a good variety for the dogs and that way I know all bases are covered nutritionally
Important Additional Supplements to Enhance Program:
INGREDIENTS: Barley Grass, Organic Sprouted Flax Seed, Vitamin C, Arabinogalactin, Bovine Colostrum, MSM, Brewers Yeast (Saccharomyces Cerevisiac), DMG, L-Carnitine, at least 68 Trace Minerals, Lethicin, Glucosamine Sulfate, Type IV Collagen & Type II Collagen, Probiotics & Proprietary Enzyme Blend; Aspergillus Oryzae Fermentation Product, Dried Aspergillus Niger Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium Thermophilum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Bacillus Subtilis Fermentation Product, and Dried Yucca Schidigera.
2) Oxy-E-Drops - helps to maintain the pH of the gut. Antibacterial, Anti-virus and Anti-fungus. Some cancers are thought to be fungus driven. 1 drop per 20lbs of body weight AM and PM mixed in a little water and put on food.
3). Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil - or Ultra Oil which is a perfect balance of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. - Omega-6 rich Flaxseed Oil which is then balance with Omega-3 rich Fish Oil followed by Grapeseed oil Omega 9 to help naturally preserve and act as a all natural antioxidant. GMO-Free, Gluten-free, Herbicide & Pesticide free. No THC and Tryspin inhibitor free.
Important news: Mix your salmon oil in some cottage cheese and feed the two together, this is very beneficial to the body when you are fighting cancer. The combination of the two things is highly recommended.
All 3 of these supplements can be purchased at www.FirstChoiceNaturals.com or call 1-765-284-8288
Whole Foods/Raw Food Options:
We do not want to add everything all at once and make the pet sick so let's start with a routine that spaces the supplements 2 days apart when introducing them until they are used to the supplements. It is best if we can start them before any treatment, if you decide to go this route, but sometimes that is not the case. All I can do is tell you how I would start the supplements with my pets but I am only a pet owner.
B) Day 1 - Start with K9-Immunity and Transfer Factor
C) Day 3 - Introduce the Nzymes granular at 1/2 of a MAINTENANCE dose. Check the label specifically for a maintenance dose, the only give 1/2 of that for a couple days working up to a whole maintenance dose based on the dogs weight. This is very important.
Do not double dose the first two weeks like the bottle says, the dog will detoxify too fast and get flu like symptoms including loose stools.
D) Day 5 - Filling N The Wholes - can be added, divide it AM and PM
E) Day 7 - Oxy-EDrops can be added to food diluted in a little water.
F) Day 9 - if the dog is doing well with these additions, no nausea and loose stool, then you can add anything else you decide is helpful that is on this list.
Editorial comment: I am not a vet, I am not an MD - and I can't find any real answer to this question....but, with my father's chemo and radiation, we stopped the Nzymes product the day before and resumed it the day after and had great results. No hair or weight loss and little nausea, he sailed right though 6 weeks of chemo and radiation and he drove himself, would pick up something for dinner and return home with little loss of energy. He was 87 at the time, when he died it was due to congestive heart failure at 90 1/2 yrs old, and not cancer.
I hope this helps and I wish you all the luck. Remember this - it is better that we be in pain with their loss, then they be in pain suffering. Quality of Life is the key. When their quality of life is diminished it is time to let them go to the Rainbow Bridge. My heart goes out to you at this most difficult time and you and your pet are in my thoughts and prayers.
