Medicinal mushrooms from the American company Aloha Medicinals Inc. for the treatment of dog cancer.

One of the main functions of the immune system is to identify and destroy defective, cancerous cells before they can reproduce themselves and the defect. The most common cause of canine tumours is, simply put, a reaction failure due to the immune system not working properly.
Typically, the body recognises and neutralises the resulting defective cells within the first days/weeks/months of their growth and spontaneous healing takes place.
Unless we take the right steps to trigger the body's self-healing mechanism and achieve the right immune response, the tumour can recur and metastasise!!

This is where the medicinal mushrooms "take to the ring"!

K9 INU®, K9 Immunity™ and the Aloha Medicinals Inc.'s Medicinal Mushrooms against the dog cancer

One of the main functions of the immune system is to identify and destroy defective, cancerous cells before they can reproduce themselves and the defect. The most common cause of canine tumours is, simply put, a reaction failure due to the immune system not working properly.

Approximately 100 million new cells are formed every day in a healthy dog. The vast majority of these are healthy, but abnormal progeny cells are also produced regularly.

This is a normal physiological process, as the cells of a properly functioning immune system (lymphocytes, Nk cells, etc.) recognise and destroy them, thus preventing defective cell proliferation.

The canine cancer development process

Cell division produces degenerate, mutant cells. The number of defective cells produced is affected by a number of factors, including toxins, radiation, birth defects and natural ageing. Age causes most of the defective cells to form. This is why tumours are more common in older dogs.

Typically, the body recognises and neutralises the resulting defective cells within the first days/weeks/months of their growth and spontaneous healing takes place.

However, if the immune system fails to respond properly, the correct immune response is not achieved, and the defective cells continue to reproduce themselves until they grow to a size that can be detected by a doctor and we are talking about an actual cancer.

So if the immune system does not notice the faulty cell and does not react properly, a tumour can develop. By the time it's big enough to be diagnosed as cancer, that means hundreds of millions of abnormal cells. The tumour is then removed by surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, but the underlying cause has not been removed and there is a high chance of the tumour growing back. The immune system is still not functioning properly and will continue to allow degenerated cell proliferation.

Unless we take the right steps to trigger the body's self-healing mechanism and achieve the right immune response, the tumour can recur and metastasise!! And we cannot talk about real recovery! This is where the medicinal mushrooms "take to the ring"!

Immunomodulatory therapy consists of two parts:

  • to reduce the size of the tumour using traditional methods (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy),
  • activate the immune system, make it recognise the tumour cell and trigger an appropriate immune response.

A K9 INU®, K9 Immunity™, and K9 Immunity Plus™ products contain 6 different natural immune-boosting medicinal mushrooms. Their main active ingredients are heteropolysaccharides. Their immunostimulant, antitumour and antimetastatic effects have been proven by several "forums".
