What diet do you advise for a horse with cancer?

Healthy horse diet NOs:
No GMO, No Soy (it interferes with your horse’s hormones, you do not want that!), No chemical preservatives
Health horse diet YESes:
Natural Grains – Hay, Grass, Oats (whole for horses in general, hulled for the young ones and equine senior citizens), Barley (it supports muscle tone among other things) and Corn (a good vibrant yellow non GMO type).
Planting herbs around where horses can munch on them at will is a great idea, as is a divided tray somewhere indoors with dried herbs for them to pick at if they feel like it.
Developing self-healing instinct in feeding in your horses is a great way to keep em healthy and strong.
Giving your horse Rosehips tea twice a day will keep them energized, as will hanging a bough or two of Maritime Pine which they love to munch on.
A good salt lick will also help should the horse have kidney conditions.

What causes cancer in horses?

The equine body has a robust immune system. Only a small portion of the horse’s immunity, about 5%, is aimed at fighting off infections and poisons, the other 95% is designed to keep a check on every new cell being produced, to see that it is a properly made, true-to-original-design product. When the big part of the immune system’s energy is being focussed away from this basic job, the housekeeping system fails and cancer – which is essentially cells that are NOT true to design – develops. This is explained further below.

What causes low immunity in horses?

In the modern lifestyle horses are forced to tolerate, there are way too many chemicals and environmental poisons that have to be eliminated that the horse’s body isn’t able to eliminate regularly enough, so they get stored under the skin and tucked away in places, festering into cancer. Exercise which stimulates the horse’s body, soul and immunity is restricted more often not, as are healthy relationships with other horses, animals and humans. We’ve all gotten too politically correct and our horses have been affected by it as well.
Just as humans have fallen into patterns of self-suppressing emotions and instincts, so our horses pick up those patterns by hanging out with us, until they’re doing the same to themselves.

What should I do if my horse has been diagnosed with cancer? What are the first steps?

We recommend:
1) An immediate re-working of the horse’s diet to include Rosehips tea,
2) Replacing processed food and supplements with whole grains, dried feed preferably meadow hay rather than only commercially grown (fertilised and sprayed) feed like Alfalfa (although this may be difficult) and green pick, and
3) Putting them on one of our herbal treatment programs for equine cancer.

We hope that every horse diagnosed with cancer gets a chance to take herbal treatments before getting into the rigorous chemotherapy and radiotherapy protocols. If a Vet says they, after chemo and radiotherapy, can predict a life-time of just a few months more, we believe herbal treatments could do a lot better than that. We ask people to postpone the chemotherapy for a few weeks if possible. Very often we find herbal treatment makes a big difference in about 2 months, the horse getting a whole more energetic than usual, and the Vet is likely to find the cancer reducing or gone.

Many of our horses on herbal treatments have lived on for years after being diagnosed with cancer.

Also very often the Vet will say that horses shouldn’t be on antioxidants as those limit the ability of chemo to kill cancer cells. That is somewhat true. Chemotherapy is chemical poison that kills off both cancer cells AND healthy cells, the hope is that it kills off the cancer cells before ALL the healthy cells die too (something that unfortunately happens too often). Herbal antioxidants limit this poison’s effect on the body and increase the horse’s ability to resist all poisons including the chemo poisons, so yes, in a way it does interfere with chemotherapy. This is also exactly why we recommend your horse be taking herbal treatments alongside chemo and radiotherapy as they can reduce the impact of these often overly-harsh treatments and raise the chances of recovery from the side-effects and after-effects.

If a horse has had a lot of chemotherapy and is too weak to be given any more, we still believe herbal treatments can help with quality AND quantity of life. We have had many horses recover after even chemotherapy to make many more precious memories with their loved ones.

Do you need a cancer diagnosis from a Vet before herbal treatment for cancer can be given to a horse?

No, we do not. These herbal treatments do no harm to horses who do not have cancer. What IS important is that you start them off on herbal treatments and a proper diet immediately. These will only dramatically boost their immune system and help their system recover from whatever is bothering them whether it is cancer or not. Herbal treatments are safe enough to take just in case it might be cancer, certainly cheaper than an expensive exploratory surgery to prove that it is cancer or to put a name on the cancer.

What does a basic herbal treatment program for cancer in a horse involve?

Every cancer herbal treatment made by Caraf Avnayt comes in two parts – that is, two bottles literally.
The first is a super-antioxidant blend with power herbs to boost immunity and basic vital energy.
The other part of the herbal treatment is to deal with the area of the cancer involved, so if it’s a liver cancer, then that’s to deal with any damage in the liver area and the liver functions and to try and help that recover. Its not actually trying to cure the liver cancer itself, it’s the immune system being boosted which can allow the horse’s body to get back on top of the work of controlling that cancer.
We further modify the herbal treatment to suit the horse’s unique situation including any emotional conditions they might be facing.

What are the signs that the cancer is healing or that my horse’s immunity is getting better?

We ask that people report back to us in 4-8 weeks after starting their horse on herbal treatments for cancer, and the usual report is that the horse is much more energetic and moving around, responding to interaction again. If the horse has previously stopped eating, the horse is feeling better basically and showing signs of feeling more healthy, and and is more energetic, that’s usually what we hear. Most people are aware and can feel that their horse is healthier.
If there was a cancer diagnosed, and the person is worried and wants an actual report on the status of the cancer, we suggest that they go back to their vets after 3 or 4 months and have them reassess the horse’s cancer.

How effective is herbal treatment for cancer in horses? What is your success rate in treating cancer?

So far, we have never has had anyone saying the cancer became worse after taking herbal treatments. There are some horses who were just too weak to rally and even then their humans email saying they had unexpected good times towards the end and they know the herbs made a significant change in their horse’s body to make that possible.

Do you actually have a natural therapy to help the horse cope with their chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment?

Yes, we have herbal treatments to support your horse through chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Herbs can keep your horse recovering very quick from each bout of chemotherapy. It does backfire sometimes though, with vets saying, “Now your horse is doing so well, I’m going to recommend more chemotherapy.”

What is your basic approach to treating cancer in horses?

Our approach is to tap into the horse’s own immunity to stimulate it to restrict the cancer, and then judge the progress by looking for reduction in symptoms.

What if the vet advises surgery for my horse?

If the cancer is particularly aggressive, surgery to remove the especially troubled area will have to be done. But we definitely do not recommend surgery to determine what sort of cancer it is as it doesn’t really matter what it is called – the herbs will help anyway.
Should there be no option but to go through with surgery, herbal treatments will support the horse through the process, help in recovery from the shock, support the horse’s immunity in managing any remaining cancer, prevent remission and help in returning back to function.

Do you need a biopsy done of the cancer?

No we don’t. There’s no need to put the horse and your wallet through the invasion required to give the cancer a definite name. All cancer is a failure of the immune system and herbs can help your horse self-heal.

How long after my horse starts taking the herbal treatment for cancer should I review the situation?

4-8 weeks is usually the time during which the horse’s condition shows improvement overall.

How important is exercise for a horse with cancer?

Very important. Exercise is necessary stimulation for your horse. A horse needs to want to live and activities that make them happy are a big part of their recovery from cancer. Exercise is good, but exercise with you, their loved human is even better.

What if I don’t want to give my horse herbal extracts in alcohol?

There’s an easy way around that. You drop the drops into a tiny amount – about 10ml -of boiling hot water in a cup. The alcohol evaporates in a few seconds leaving just the herbal properties behind. You then add that to water, or Rosehips tea, or use it to dampen down feed and you’re done.

Do you have a herbal treatment for pain relief for my horse?

We do not have any magical painkillers especially for situations involving amputations and the like. There is a lot herbs can do to resolve the causes of the pain, relieve pain from inflammation, nervous pain and can pretty much eliminate the need for painkillers, but the transition from chemical pain-killers to natural relief has to be done slowly over a few weeks.

What can be expected at the start of herbal treatment for cancer in a horse?

There is usually an adjustment period of about 10 days when the horse might have some ups and downs. They might not want to interact much, throw up, go off their food etc. That’s just the herbs changing the way things are done in the horse’s body. After 2-3 weeks there is usually a sign or two of progress and some times the horse might have a reaction because the body is throwing out toxins that were stuck inside or just under the skin waiting to be thrown out. Most of the time we’ve had just good reports after that.

Is there a link between vaccines and rising cancer diagnoses in horses?

We have absolutely no doubt about it.
