Natural Remedy: cancer treatment

It’s heart breaking when you learn that your fur baby has cancer but rest assure that there are different treatments options out there besides the traditional approach.

Complementary and Alternative (CAM)

Is a eastern approach that involves treating and preventing diseases with “food energies”. CAM can be used with or with out the aid of western treatment under the supervision of your vet or certified AHVM or American Holistic Vet Medical Association.

How can CAM help with cancer?

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine theory states that cancer is made up of many cells rapidly dividing with uplifting energy that creates heat or inflammation that occurs from cellular genetic materials. But when food energies come into play it cools down the inflammation.
