Like humans, your dog’s body responds well to many beneficial herbs and preventive supplements. Certain genes in your pet’s body promote cancer while the others suppress the development. Today, we already know that using herbal medicines and providing good nutrients affects the behavior of these genes.
Extensive research and development were done on certain herbs to identify their tumor inhibiting capabilities. The following herbs were subject of the study.
Burdock Root (Arctium Lappa) – This herb works best by cleansing the kidneys and liver by removing toxic materials and purifying the blood. The root is made up of carbohydrates that allow beneficial bacteria to grow thereby eliminating harmful bacteria in the dog’s body. It also helps leveling of the blood sugar level, boosting the immune system and bottle up the growth of tumor.
Sheep Sorrel (Rumex Acetosella) – This herb has been used by the natives for ages as one of their main ingredients in preparing cancer treatment concoctions. Sheep Sorrel’s ability to direct the healing power of all supplement herbs to the cancer site makes this herb amazingly awesome.
