Page 26 | Abby's Magazine - By Dr. Marlene Siegel C a n c e r in Your Pets Most people think cancer is genetic. The old "belief system" was if your family members had cancer, the chances were higher that you would get cancer. For those pet owners who know their pet's siblings, I often hear them say "his/her brother/sister had...." and they feel their pet is at greater risk due to "family genetics". Dr. Bruce Lipton (author of The Biology of Belief) is considered the leading expert in the field of epigenetics. Dr. Lipton has proven that it is the "environment" the cell's live in that determine genetic expression. The internal environment the cells live in is created by the "chemical" transmitters that are released by the nervous system as a response to how we perceive or interpret experiences in our outside environment. Our "thoughts" and "beliefs" (which come from our learned experiences) become transmitters, signaling our internal environment- our cells- to respond appropriately to what is happening outside so as to change the genetic expression (turning on or off genetic coding) to ensure the best adaptation to ensure the species survival. Simply put, genes are turned on or turned off based on the chemical transmitters our cells are bathed in. Other than the mind, two other factors impact the fate of cells, according to Dr. Lipton: toxins and trauma. All three factors ( the mind, toxins & trauma) have been associated with the onset of cancer. When we experience chemicals, toxins, pesticides and traumatic events, chemicals are released in the body stimulating genes to be turned on or off to respond to the stimulus. According to Dr. Lipton, gene activity can change on a daily basis. If the perception in your mind is reflected in the chemistry of your body, and if your nervous system reads and interprets the environment and then controls the blood's chemistry, then you can literally change the fate of your cells by altering your thoughts. In fact, Dr. Lipton's research illustrates that by changing your perception (how you interpret a situation), your mind can alter the activity of your genes and create over thirty thousand variations of products from each gene. "The function of the mind is to create coherence between our beliefs and the reality we experience," Dr. Lipton said. "What that means is that your mind will adjust the body's biology and behavior to fit with your beliefs. There are many warning signs that occur before cancer is present. "Chronic Inflammation" is an early warning sign of cancer. Live blood analysis is an easy, inexpensive and effective way to look "inside" the pet and determine levels of inflammation and toxicity. Inflammation results in the red blood cells becoming "sticky", leading to the cells stacking on each other like a slinky (a condition called rouleaux). When the clumping is excessive it is called aggregation. This is the live blood of a dog that was eating a commercial processed diet. She had become grossly obese and was suffering chronic bladder infections and skin disease. This is the live blood of the same dog 1 week later. She was placed on a meat based diet with high doses of enzymes (both with and without food) and probiotics. Her red blood cells are separated, round and much healthier. With more surface area exposed, the cells can perform their metabolic functions more normally. The owner reported she was feeling like a puppy again, happy and energetic. Over the following few weeks she lost weight and her skin issues and bladder infection resolved as well. This case was a 16 year old cat that presented with severe weight loss and had stopped eating. The owner had assumed there was nothing that could be done and it was time to say good bye. The job of the red blood cells is to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the body while removing the waste material from cellular
