Full Moon: Immunity in Dogs and Cancer

These remedies helped the dogs: Apis 6x, Carcinosin 10M, Hekla Lava CM, Parotidinum 6x, Thyroidinum 6x, Sepia 10M, Seratonin 30, Melatonin 30, Arnica 30, Pulsatilla 30.

This is the only explanation I can find why they worked:

  • Parotidinum, Thyroidinum, Sepia, Seratonin and Melatonin are all remedies that work on glands responsible for immunity.
  • Apis works on inflammation and hardening of glands. 
  • Hekla lava is for stony hard glands and sudden eruption of suppressed miasm.
  • Carcinosin is a combination of all 4 miasms and a dewormer.
  • Arnica and Pulsatilla for circulation.
The glands of immunity grow hardened over time, because of the repeated attacks and just taking hormones without doing something about the inflammation and the calcification process is why so many approaches fail.
To reduce inflammations, which I presume happen before a thunderstorm or around a Full Moon, one would need a soup of healthy hormones. The hardened glands can't produce that. In allopathic (gross/pills) doses the amount of hormones needed would increase to dangerous toxic levels - it is hopeless unless its homeopathic.

Around a New Moon and after thunderstorms, rains or monsoons, the inflammation dies down leaving calcification or hardening tissue and poor circulation for the body to deal with. This is the process of disease.

I think Cancer especially is just this process of repeated inflammation and hardening. The other ways to die are through atrophy of important organs and tissues, but Cancer has a dynamic characteristic all of its own.
April Adams puts together a list of Canine Cancer symptoms that you can look for (with my remedies for it in brackets):

  • Respiratory Problems- Chronic coughing, sneezing, gagging, hacking. (scilla mar, rhod)
  • Unwillingness to Exercise- Lameness, fatigue, lethargy. (bellis per, arn)
  • Decreased Appetite- Not eating things they used to love. (tarax, hydras)
  • Weight Loss- Unexplained weight loss. (?)
  • Skin Discolorations- Any unusual marks or masses on the skin. (?)
  • Lumps or Swelling- In lymph nodes, testicles, abdomen or other areas. (?)
  • Sores- Unusually long healing time. (?)

Dewey's and Choudhury's Anti-cancer Remedies

I want to go through a bunch of homeopathic remedies to look for those that may be useful to dogs. My current obsessions are with worms, cancer, (worms + cancer ;), spine and bone remedies.

I have a good reason, personally, for this focus - Carcinosin and Hekla Lava. Both of them react along the spine, the chronic backache that I'd been unconscious of for over 20 yrs (imagine that - we carry a threshold of pain as normal!) has vanished. I've been shedding worms like never before and I've got a tendency to cancer - both diabetes and tuberculosis - in my family history. For the dogs, though I'm hoping they'll drop their worms more visibly, the blackened skin indicates cancer and they're all better since Carcinosin and Hekla Lava (in the last two days especially).

I'm keeping both these lists I found in Merrilyn's Blog, because each only mentions one of my two favorites. I'm going to work with eliminating the rest so I'll have a smaller handful to work with. Some of them I don't have and they go out on a strikethrough now. The eliminated I'll grey out (distance-healing).
