Osteosarcoma / Bone Cancer is the single most common canine cancer and it has risen from being almost unknown 25 years ago to epidemic proportions nowadays. It is now affecting younger and younger dogs especially those of the bigger breeds. Since the 1950's with the introduction of processed dog food and with the almost complete elimination of raw meat and bones from companion dogs' diet, dogs have lost the protection that an efficient digestive system and intake of suitably balanced essential minerals, once provided.
The adoption of Animal husbandry practices where we mostly take pups away from their mum and siblings very young and bring them up on their own contributes to their weaker skeletons because they miss out on all the rough and tumble play which toughens growing bones. Also, some owners subject pups to long and inappropriate walks while they are still too young and then constrain them to extremely lonely and boring existences. Then feeling guilty, owners overfeed their dog, creating a perfect environment for Cancer of Bone to develop.
The Osteosarcoma / Bone Cancer Support mix includes; Bladderack, Elecampane, Equisetum, Golden Seal, Wormwood, Parsley, Yarrow and Rosehips along with the Bach Flower Remedies Oak, Olive, Pine, Water Violet, Walnut and Wild Oat. I recommend you take Maritime Pine Bark Extract (Antioxidant) alongside this mix for advanced support. This Cancer Support mix can be used in conjunction with other alternative medicines also, or with orthodox medical treatments including radio and chemotherapy.
The combination of treatments, along with dietary changes including (where possible and practicable) a return to a single meal each day consisting of mostly raw meaty bones offers the best chance of bringing a case of Osteosarcoma into remission (especially in younger "patients".) Sustaining the remission is harder, especially beyond the 12- and 24-month mark.
The important distinction between my herbal treatment and orthodox medicine is that, here I am aiming to reverse the underlying processes which allowed the cancer to develop in the first place. This is distinct from the aim of removing, or otherwise destroying cancerous cells directly once the process of cancer has begun.
