Holistic Cat Cancer

Holistic Cat Cancer Choices

Cancer in your cat is a scary and devastating diagnosis. Thankfully, alternative therapies and treatment programs are now available to minimize the effects of chemotherapy and toxic medications. Many people believe that incorporating them into your cat’s therapies is a necessary part of any feline cancer treatment.

At it’s most basic level, cancer is caused by a failure of the immune system to regulate cell growth. Cancer can occur in any body organ (liver, spleen, lungs etc), body area (bones, skin, mouth) or even just a general vicinity of the body (chest cavity). Under normal circumstances, cells grow and divide, and damaged or irregular cells (cancer cells) are routinely eradicated by the immune system. However, if the immune system is weakened or not functioning properly, damaged cells go undetected and continue to grow and replicate, leading to the growth of tumors, which are made up of the damaged cells.

Aggressive and Rapidly Growing Disease

Cancer in cats can occur in virtually every body part and system, it can often go undetected for weeks or even months. As cancer is an aggressive and rapidly growing disease, the lag time between occurrence and diagnosis often has a direct influence on cure and survival rates.

Once Cancer Has Been Diagnosed

Close consultation with your veterinarian can help you to select which feline cancer treatment and cancer therapies are appropriate for your situation. Depending on the type of cancer, the age and condition of your cat and other important factors. Treatments for cancers in cats can range from surgery to tumor or abnormal growth removal, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to isolate and destroy cancer cells, and medications to help slow down tumor development, treat inflammation, and control pain.

Mainstream Western-Medicine Therapies

Unfortunately, while many of these mainstream western-medicine therapies can be successful in removing or shrinking tumors, at least temporarily, none of these feline cancer treatments address the underlying cause of cancer- a faulty or weakened immune system. In fact, some of the treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can significantly damage or even destroy an already fragile immune system.
Since feline cancer results from the inability of a cat’s immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells, than it seems only natural that helping to build up and support the immune system of a cat with cancer, along with conventional therapies, may be the key to successful feline cancer treatment.

Building the Immune System

The most important holistic cat cancer choice you can make is to build the immune system of a sick cat which requires a multi-faceted approach. First reduce the everyday toxins in your cats’ environment;  from pesticides and cleaning products to highly processed cat foods. In addition, talk to a holistic veterinarian about stopping any vaccines. Vaccines can be very disruptive and even damaging to the immune system, stopping all vaccines can help to prevent further immune system degradation.

Commercial Cat Food

Most commercially prepared cat foods are highly processed, and in that processing, much of the nutritional value of the ingredients in the food is lost. All cats, but especially those with cancer, can benefit by changing to naturally prepared or organic cat foods, rich in nutrients and without chemical preservatives. Cats with cancer often have a poor appetite, so it is essential to continually offer your cat a variety of healthful foods to encourage him or her to eat.

We Can help

In addition to providing essential nutrients through diet, supplementation can help to ensure that your cat has the utmost level of immune system support and boosters to fight cancer.

Advanced Immune Restoration Protocol is the only program that supports the entire spectrum of feline immune system competence and normalizes cellular metabolism.
