Little Harold has Healed from Melanoma
by Kris Welchman
The second week of August 2010, my little dog, Harold, whom we adopted as a senior, (around 13-14 years old) was diagnosed with oral cancer (melanoma) and lymphoma. It was confirmed that the tumors were malignant and that they would rapidly spread to his other major organs. He was basically expected to live for around a month longer, maybe two months at best. Our vet made some suggestions for chemotherapies or herbal treatments.
I was very grateful for her help but my previous experience with such treatments for another one of my dogs was not at all successful and he died rather quickly after being diagnosed and having the tumors removed. After letting the tears flow for a short while I decided that we wouldn't go down without a fight and began researching alternative natural remedies.
During my research I came across the Budwig Diet and the use of Essiac tea together to attack the cancer cells and stave off the spreading of cancer cells to other organs. I was hopeful but doubtful as the tumors grew rapidly and encompassed one side of Harold's cute little face. I persevered with the treatment, however, and cleaned the raw oral tumors 3-4 times daily. It was becoming almost unbearable to see his face being taken over by such a mass and once the tumor started regularly bleeding I braced myself for the inevitable and prepared my emotions for his demise.
Last week, nearly 3 months since he was diagnosed, I noticed his movements slowing and he stopped eating. I then fed him by hand and used a spoon to get him to ingest his daily doses of cottage cheese and flaxseed oil. I hadn't completely given up but had decided that if he did not show improvements soon then I would not allow him to suffer any further. The treatment had given him two more months than expected and that was a great gift to have been able to have spent that time with him.
On Thursday of that same week I fed him in the morning, cleaned the bleeding tumor and treated him with some antibiotics. I then left for work, not returning home until 12 hours later. When I returned home my wife had already fed him because he had eaten all of his organic food and cottage cheese-flaxseed oil mix without hesitation or help. I found that strange but was pleased. I then went to clean the tumor and noticed something odd...the tumor on his mouth was no longer raw and bleeding. It had also shrunk to about half the size. The tumor on his lymph node had also shrunk from the size of a plum to about the size of a small walnut. Over the course of the last five days the tumors have continued to shrink and are nearly gone. Harold has tons of energy and seems healthier than ever.
I can offer no other explanations for his miraculous recovery other than the use of the Budwig diet, Essiac tea, and a natural, organic diet. It is truly amazing and I thank this site, as well as others, for bringing this information to all of us. As I write this I am crying tears of joy instead of tears of sadness.
With the greatest of gratitude,
