The problem with the cancer is, the dog's acidic/alkaline balance is completely out of kilter which is why cancer could grow in the first place AND then the added complication of fungus. If we can keep our bodies and our pets bodies in the proper alkaline to acid ratio with acidity being very low (about 20%) and alkalinity high (approx 80%) cancer and other disease CAN NOT thrive or survive in our bodies. Where does apple cider vinegar come into play? Read on...oh and before I forget, remember, we are not diagnosing, treating or any of those other things here. We're sharing suggestions. See your holistic veterinarian if you need a diagnosis or treatment or recommendation -thank you!
...a very simple remedy for the bacterial fungus in the back paws
would be "take an old shallow pan and put warm water in pan. Put a few
teaspoons of "apple-cider vinegar" in the water. Have the dog stand in the
pan with the water and vinefar for a few minutes. Put down an old towel and
have the dog stand on the towel to dry. Repeat
as often as possible. Could
take 2-3 weeks for the fungus/bacteria to leave.---
I also have to agree with your simple remedy. I have a book called "The Vinegar
Book", there are hundreds of good uses for it...like you said - be sure it is
100% apple - cider -vinegar.
It supposedly keeps the PH balanced in your
body, and if it is balanced, cancer can't grow. The "human" recipe is to drink
1 tablespoon of vinegar, 1 teaspoon of honey, mixed in a ":warm" glass of water
about 1/2 hour before meals 1 - to 3 times daily. (This was suggested by the
naturpathic doctor, we go to...)
Third suggestion -very informative:
There is a huge difference between store vinegars and the type you buy from
a health food store which contains the 'mother'. I work for an herb farm
which sells a product which cures human nail fungus. The reason I'm
mentioning this is because under certain circumstances you should Not use
quality vinegar from the HFS. The nail fungus soak is a package of 4 herbs
which are infused (like making tea)
into cider vinegar and has been
successfully used for hoof problems in horses. The vinegar needs to be cider
but the cheapest you can find at the grocery store. I say cheap because
there are no additives, like grains or dyes - it is simply pasturized to
kill the 'mother'. If you are treating an external fungal problem, using
vinegar with the 'mother'
in it will add to the problem. You would be adding
fungus (the mother) to fungus.
If you are drinking the ACV, by all
means use the best. Braggs is the most readily available brand. I dilute it
and give it to all my animals periodically & use it for all human
consumption. I can't explain why but it becomes alkaline when taken
internally. Pasturized cider vinegar is excellent for external use and
remains acidic rather than alkaline. When I switched from Braggs to a cheap
cider vinegar rinse on my dog, his constant scratching stopped.
My two cents:
I use a natural organic apple cider daily. I drink it and it does taste good. I also give it to my dog. Not everyday but I do give it to him. It helps us to keep our bodies more alkaline. I also use Alkalime by Young Living. I think if you take all of the above and put it together, you'll find what you need to use for your situation. Use the pasteurized for external and the unpasteurized for internal. It just makes good common sense.
