BLACKWATCH FEED PROGRAM FOR CANCER SUPPORT
The Cancer Support Program
The supplements for this program are Kit #48 - Cancer Support
Supplements in the Kit #48 for Cancer Support:
Ox-E-Drops - which will help maintain the pH of the gut
Nzymes Granulars - which is a powdered form of sprouted foods that will cleanse the body at a cellular level and help restore health due to it's ability to neutral any free radical damage done by disease, surgery or medication. Heavy duty antioxidant protection from this product.
Transfer Factor - a powerful form of colostrum to boost immune function
K9 Immunity - a combination of several medicinal mushrooms to reduce tumors. This product was used in several research tests used by the Guide Dogs of America with great success.
Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil - 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.
IF I HAD A PET WITH CANCER
Now to your pet's needs.
WHAT IS 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.
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.
Note: if you are on a tight budget, and you can get your dog to drink water with lemon in it (juice of 1 lemon in 1 bucket of water) or use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (2-3 tablespoons in a bucket), this is an inexpensive way to flip the pH of the body in pets.
Other Whole Food Options:
Blackwatch Feed Program for Cancer Support
Foods: - the general principle here is to have a high protein, 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 only Grain Free foods on the market at this time, that I support for cancer diets, are the Precise Holistic Complete Grain Free Diets and as a back up, if is not available in your area, NutriSouce makes a good grain free formula.
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
Note: Although the majority of vets have NO nutritional training, many veterinarians feel that antioxidants (such as the Nzymes Granular or Treats) should be stopped three days before, and resumed one week after the completion of the radiation or chemo treatment. This comes old and antiquated research information. I have this info in my human article on cancer. It is crucial you work with your oncologist to achieve maximum effectiveness in your dog's treatment! I have personally been through this myself as well as my father, who by the way was cancer free at 90 and died of congestive heart failure. I know for myself, these foods and supplements kept me in top shape during chemo and I did not suffer like others have suffered.
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 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. DOSAGES ARE ON THE CONTAINERS.
Day 1 - Alkalized Water for the drinking water.
Day 2 Start the K9-Immunity and Transfer Factor and Ox-E-Drops in teaspoon - tablespoon of diluted water and put on the food.
Day 3 - Introduce Filling N The Wholes to the diet.
Day 4 - Introduce the Nzymes granular - follow the label on the TOP of the container for easing into this product. If the dog gets loose stools it is due to detoxing, so ease on the Nzymes a bit and "ease" them back into a maintanence dose, then double dose for 2 weeks, just follow the round label on the top of the jar.
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.
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.

UPDATE 2011 : This is a supplement for humans and for pets (different labeling)it is used 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. It is a very very expensive product so if you can afford it and this is a dog that has youth on it's side and a strong immune system it would be worth investigating.
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.
