Cancer treatment miracle for Rocky the St Bernard
Rocky is a 5-year-old St Bernard belonging to ReGen’s Fintan who manages the operational side of the business. He’d always been a healthy dog, with good energy and appetite levels, but when Fintan noticed Rocky’s energy levels, appetite and weight decreasing as well as his reduced ability to jump in and out of the car, he naturally became concerned and took him to the vet.
The vet delivered the devastating news – Rocky had cancer. A tumour the size of a watermelon had developed in his stomach and there was very little to be done. Operating on him would most likely end in tragedy, and even then there was no guarantee that it would be a success.
Like any other concerned pet owner, Fintan set about educating himself on Rocky’s condition and what he could do to make it easier on his much-loved four-legged companion. Turning to Google, and discovering lots of remedies that might work for humans but unlikely to be of any use to dogs, it was only when Fintan discovered the theories behind oily fish, bicarbonate of soda and honey that things started to get more hopeful.
The practical application of this simple science seemed straightforward enough to engineer Fintan – cancer is acidic, and therefore oily foods like fish will not feed the cancer further. As cancer survives in an acidic environment, anything that turns the blood more alkaline starves the cancer, and baking soda is highly alkaline. When mixed with honey, the cancerous cells absorb the baking soda faster, changing them more quickly from the acidic environment to alkaline ones and therefore starving the cancer.
What was there left to lose? Fintan straight away started mixing up 3 parts honey to one part baking soda and mixing it with Rocky’s favourite mincemeat. He got this twice a day, as well as canned oily fish, and after two weeks there was some good news at last - a noticeable improvement.
After four weeks another trip to the vet was scheduled – a scan revealed that the tumour which was previously the size of a watermelon had shrunk to the size of a tennis ball. The vet examined him in disbelief and even brought in a second vet that had seen him a month earlier. They asked what had changed, and when Fintan explained they agreed that the thinking behind what he had done made total sense. The proof was standing in front of them.
It’s now been 7 months and Rocky’s treatment has clearly worked wonders. He’s back to doing what dog’s do best, and even has a new playmate, Holly, to keep him company on walks with Fintan and his family. We hope Rocky has a long and healthy life ahead of him with his new diet helping to manage his tumour so that he enjoys life to the fullest.
