In part 1 of natural remedies to shrink lipomas, I discuss some alternative treatments for dog lipomas such as a few supplements that will stop lipoma growth, herbal remedies that can help shrink fatty masses, possible causes of lipomas and why you may not want to have surgery to remove benign tumors.

In part two of this blog, I’ll discuss some diet do’s and don’ts and some herbs and spices that are thought to shrink or prevent lipomas.

Eliminate these 3 foods to stop your dog’s lipoma growth in it’s tracks!

1) GMO foods: GMO’S aka genetically modified foods, act like a “fuel” for lipoma growth. Taking out all GMO’S will aid in the healing process. Some GMO foods are corn, canola oil and wheat.

2) Eggs: Once I learned eggs feed viruses and promote cysts, tumors, and calcifications, I made sure eggs were not in any food or treats.

3) Grains: Going Grain-free can be beneficial to all dogs but especially for dogs dealing with benign tumors, dog eczema and Spondylosis. Why? Many grains, such as wheat, are no longer the same grains from decades ago. Today’s wheat is often referred to as “frakenwheat” and is a contributing factor to gut health issues such as IBS or colitis.

Anti-tumor foods for dogs

Celery shrinks lipomas

Celery reduces lipomas

1) Celery: assists kidneys, flushes liver and reduces lipomas. My dog drank 1-2 ounces of celery juice with me daily, sometimes ate a celery stalk as a snack and it was generally a part of his meal.

2) Raspberries:  prevent benign growths and malignant tumors.

3) Wild blueberries: I covered this amazing fruit in my cancer blog and it is worth repeating again since it will also help with lipomas! These berries are little powerhouses that have the capability to repair cells and are great for eye health.

If you  can’t find wild blueberries or prefer to whole fruit, you can use this powder.

Fruit Tips: If your dogs is not good at keeping food in their bowl, stick them in the blender to make a smoothie for them to lick it up. Additionally keep fruit separate from protein for the best results.

4 Herbs and spices that help fight against canine benign tumors

1) Parsley: neutralizes acidity in the body, is helpful in preventing tooth decay, removes herbicides, removes pesticides and will counteract grains.

2) Turmeric: inhibits lipoma growth, has anti-cancer properties, helps with pain and is good for heart health. To learn more about turmeric, visit our cancer blog for additional benefits and any contraindications.

3) Cumin: great for digestive disorders, has anti-cancer properties, anti-tumor properties and helps boost kidney & liver function.

4) Burdock root: has anti-tumor properties, is a top cancer remedy being as it stops cells from metastasizing and is an ingredient in essaic tea. It also helps with urinary and bladder infections, skin issues like eczema, is an effective painkiller and anti-inflammatory. If you would like to order or learn more about Essaic tea for pets, send an email to my friend.

Canine Lipoma diet: food tips for healthy dog food

1) Meat: feeding grass fed meats will be best because it will help your pet avoid ingesting other toxins. If your dog’s diet is heavily based around animal protein, lowering the amount of animal protein a bit can be beneficial because protein can stress the liver and kidneys. One way to accomplish this is to have Meatless Monday.

2) Grains: above I mention grains may be something you want to avoid all together when fighting fatty tumor growth. However if grains are part of your pets diet, the better choices are GMO free quinoa and brown rice. My favorite type of rice is Basmati but you could pick another type such as Jasmine rice.

Grain tip: Grains don’t “mix” well with animal protein so it’s best to keep them separate. When I make a Meatless Monday meal for my dog, it was made with quinoa and vegetables.

3) Vegetables: There has been some information claiming cruciferous veggie’s like broccoli are goitrogenic but one of my trusted sources says no.  There are some pet cancer diets that use this vegetable as one of their main veggies in their pre-made meals. A few other vegetable choices are leafy greens like kale or spinach and another favorite is sweet potato.

4) Go organic: this is to reduce the amount of chemicals you are introducing into your pets system. If you can’t afford to go 100% organic, than use as much organic food as possible. A good guideline is “The clean 15” and “dirty dozen foods.”

I hope this information helps you achieve the success I had in shrinking my dog’s lipoma!

I would love to see some pic’s of your pets eating their fruits and veggies or hear what strategies you implemented to reduce your pets non-cancerous lump!
