Cancer is not only a scary word but a very complex subject. Cancer cells can arise from different parts of the body and have very different treatments and outcomes depending on the type of tumor, the location, how early it was detected and how rapidly it is growing.

Symptoms of Cancer

One of the reasons cancer can be so difficult to treat is because it can develop without any symptoms. By the time the pet is exhibiting symptoms, the cancer has had an opportunity to grow and spread throughout the body. Prevention of cancer with the appropriate diet and nutritional support and early cancer screening tests are the best way to treat cancer before it starts.

Conventional Treatment

Conventional treatment for cancer usually involves surgical removal of the tumor and follow up with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. Whenever possible, surgical removal of the tumor is recommended as the first line of treatment.

Holistic Care for Cancer

Holistic therapies for cancer include bicom therapy and nutritional supplements and herbs. It is still important to surgically remove any known tumors, but holistic support of the body instead of chemotherapy may be a preferred option to fight the cancer battle.

Bicom therapy is a European treatment that utilizes a computer to stimulate nerve and muscle pathways of the body to promote healing. The focus is on supporting the body to fight off the disease and find any predisposing factors that lead up to the cancer. It is a safe, non-invasive
therapy that helps the body to heal itself.

Medical Ozone & Ultraviolet Biophotonic Therapy (UVO3) has been used for over 100 years throughout the world for creating an oxygen rich environment in the body where cancer cells cannot replicate. It activates the immune system and has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Nutritional supplements and Herbs are an essential component of the healing process. The body needs additional vitamins to help the body heal. There are many different supplements that can be beneficial. The specific herbs and supplements that are recommended are based on each
individual pet’s needs.

Neoplasene is a potent herb with anti-cancer properties. This herb can be used to treat dermal tumors topically or injected into some tumors to create tumor cell death. The appropriate use of Neoplasene is determined by the veterinarian.

Summary

Holistic care can be combined with medications and/or surgery as needed to provide an integrative approach to treating pets with cancer. Regardless of the therapies chosen, the prognosis and recovery also depend on the specific tumor and how early it is detected.

What People
Have Said

"Dr. Strickfaden performed bicom on our 11 year-old chocolate lab, Margo.  Margo had been diagnosed by our Oshkosh vet with Spondylosis.  The bicom, while not a cure for Spondylosis, gave our Margo a wonderful 10 months of life.  When we came to Dr. Strickfaden, Margo was sleeping 20 hours a day and not moving much. To those of you unfamiliar with bicom, the procedure seems a bit like magic and I was doubtful.  However, within one day of her first bicom treatment, Margo was chasing balls in the yard.  Margo changed from acting like a 15 year-old dog to acting like a 5 year-old dog.  She became so active.  Eventually, we were able to take her off all the harsh meds that she was on and only take her for bicom treatments every 6 weeks.  I can't say enough wonderful things about bicom.  Margo went from a lethargic, dog full of pain to a joyful dog who chased balls and was happy until her last days.  I can't thank Dr. Strickfaden and the staff enough for giving us those joy filled months with Margo.  Those memories and gratitude will last with us forever."
