What Do You Do If …

What do you do if your devoted companion is diagnosed with cancer and your veterinarian has no cure to offer?  Terminal cancer in dogs and cats occurs more frequently than most people realize.  Sometimes, the animal can be cured.  But often, the best a vet can offer is treatment that will merely buy your pet some time.  Then, you may hear the dreaded words, “There’s nothing more we can do.”

Outsmart Your Pet’s Cancer  was written to provide pets and their owners with another legitimate treatment option  . . .  one that is powerful, yet most veterinarians will not likely tell you about it.  This option is a Native American herbal preparation called “Essiac,” or “Essiac Tea.”  Though Essiac can improve many different health challenges, it is best known and documented as a cancer treatment.  It is non-toxic, safe, and inexpensive, and can be purchased without a prescription.  In recent years, more and more people have used this approach to cure their pet’s cancer – even, in many cases, after they were told there was no hope for a cure.

In Outsmart Your Pet’s Cancer,  the heartwarming stories of 16 dogs and 6 cats treated with Essiac are told.  Described largely in their owners’ own words, these real-life cases give valuable information about how various pet owners were able to help or, more importantly, completely cure their pet’s cancer.

Over the past 20 years of researching and writing about alternative non-toxic cancer treatments for people, I learned some important things about using any self-administered cancer treatment at home.  For example, knowing the history of the treatment you are using and understanding as much as you can about how it works is one of the keys to successfully overcoming cancer.  Therefore, the first 2 chapters of Outsmart Your Pet’s Cancer provide a look at the fascinating history of Essiac and some details on what is known about each herb in it.  This information not only gives readers an appreciation of just how remarkable this herbal treatment really is, but it also explains why Essiac has been used with great success for so long, yet most people have still not heard about it.

Knowing the best way to use a self-administered approach for optimum results is another key to success.  Thus, another chapter provides valuable tips for giving Essiac to a pet — including what NOT to do.  These tips can be critical to know about and may make the difference between overcoming your pet’s cancer or not.

Other chapters detail extra information that helps put this powerful approach into perspective, such as why it is not an officially approved approach to treating cancer and how to understand skeptics who may be “naysayers.”

Finally, a slightly different chapter, called “Writing this Book,” reveals some of my own experiences and surprises that occurred during this project.  As a veteran researcher into non-toxic approaches to cancer, I am rarely surprised when an alternative treatment works well.  But I found myself surprised quite often by the cases I included in this book that are truly astounding recoveries.  And I was also surprised by some of the stories the pet owners revealed to me about their own use of Essiac for themselves.  For instance, one man decided to give Essiac to his dog after he had used Essiac to cure himself of Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer!

My recommendation to pet owners is to always work with their vet whenever possible, especially since some cases may require initial surgery, pain medication or antibiotics. Outsmart Your Pet’s Cancer  will provide you with what you need to know about using Essiac to treat the cancer if another option is what you need, and you and your vet can decide whether it is something to give your pet by itself or along with a conventional treatment your vet wants to administer.  As always, my very best wishes go out to everyone!
