Timmy!, A Story of
and Hope :)
Cancer, health, & Timmy's recovery
From 1986 to 1989 my brother was suffering from
During that time I did about 2000 hours of research that showed me that
all cancers are not diseases in the classical sense, that is, caused by
a "bug", and having one provable "cure". Rather, it
is a symptom of the immune system crashing. A good explanation of how
works is found in "The Cancer Answer", by Al Carter. It is blacklisted
in most book stores as it goes counter to the mega billion $$ AMA
establishment, but it can be had thru the publisher & author, Al
800-748-4922; 801-377-0570 fax=377-0655 Amer.Institute of Reboundology.
My brother was locked into the AMA belief system, and was poisoned to
during that time, dying a slow and painful death. The AMA diagnosis was
based on the finding of "too many immature white blood cells".
Their treatment was to poison the blood stream, killing the white
and also the red, and the platelets. His final death was a
agreement, where they connected two IV's to him running wide open.
he had little platelets to clot the system, he basically bled to death
the brain over a period of some 6 hours. Kavorkian can be credited with
bringing an end to suffering with much less or no pain compared to the
doctors have been using for many years, though quietly, without the
coverage or "controversy".\
The holistic understanding is that the immature
blood cells are that way due to environmental and systemic poisoning, a
constant state of malnourishment, and a life of stresses that were not
with in a constructive way. My brother worked at the downtown Chicago
office, as a supervisor on the loading dock, breathing in the truck
for years. He also ate virtually no fruits or vegetables, drank water
the tap that was brown from rust & other contamination, was never
had no children, and other dysfunctional qualities. His personality was
one of holding everything in, not venting or dealing with life stresses
thru sports, hobbies or constructive counseling.
The holistic treatment of the situation is that
you can do to eliminate or reduce stressors, and increase the
support will help. This includes using food with no artificial
the worst of which is ethoxyquin, use filtered, distilled or reverse
drinking water to eliminate the chlorine & it's carcinogenic
and maximize nutrition on a daily basis, including using food from
sources to avoid "designer poisons", which is what insecticides
are. They are very toxic to all life, us as well as the bugs. The
recipes' people have developed in the attempt to provide increased
to help in time of sickness are also very good. I go one step further
feeding the recipe to all my guys each evening to supplement the
food. Also, Timmy eats very little solid food, so he has roughly
of the recipe from a feeder or catheter syringe. These have a larger
normal opening that will pass the organic baby food that is not as
as Gerber's'. Lately he has improved to eating some out of a cup as
Since water is the main component of our
NEVER drink tap water. Many cities very often violate EPA rules on
quality. Bottled water has NO standards it needs to meet at all! If you
use a water softener, use potassium chloride to regenerate, not regular
salt. This will remove the excess sodium and replace it with potassium
helps counter act the sodium which all processed food is loaded with.
chloride is available from Home Depot (no, I don't work for them), and
growing number of stores as people request it. It costs more, but since
not much is used, it amounts to only a couple of dollars a month.
it's KCl, where "regular" salt is NaCl. It's slightly lower on
the activity level of the chemical periodic table of elements, so set
softener to use 12% more of KCl per re-generation, if you can. Else
you can just set it to regenerate slightly more often if you notice
water at any time.
I also have a reverse osmosis hooked up to the
water (here in Phoenix, we have 22 grains of hardness, & most RO
don't want over 10 grains!). Soft water will make the membrane last
longer than if it was hooked up to hard water. Since the RO units take
minerals out of the water, I add back a controlled dose of minerals by
a dash of Marine Minerals' co. Liquid Trace Minerals. (800-444-8077,
If you don't have space or water pressure for a
unit (as I don't when I'm in the motor home), I use a filter made by
Everpure co. that I got from Camping World. The Ametek company makes
good units also, including a counter top for apartments that now
out lead and other heavy metals.
Timmy's specific story:
1/95; updated 5/96; updated 7/96
Well hello; I've been reading the news letters
a couple of weeks now, and thought I might submit my efforts to so far
help my Timmy survive what in early Nov., 1994 was diagnosed by Dr.
Brown in Ill. as lymphoma.
Timmy was getting lethargic & not eating when
I was in Indiana (mid October, 1994, & a vet there thought it was a
blockage so we went thru a week of Ferratone & baby Fleet enema
a day. He started nibbling dry food then stopped. I was going to visit
in Illinois anyway, so I Saw Dr. Susan Brown the ferret expert who took
an Xray & thought she saw a blockage in his stomach, like a piece
phone cord (he had bitten clear thru one twice), & convinced me to
Once inside she felt the stomach was OK, but the lymph nodes were 10x
size. She did a lab sample & said it looked like lymphoma.
By the time I got to a vet they referred me to in
Boulder, the lab confirmed it & said prognosis poor, treatment of
avail, 2-3 weeks expected to live. [ THE LAB REPORT ALSO SAID IT HAD
TO THE LIVER, HEPATIC METASTASIS!! ] My friend Mason, in Indiana, said
turkey rice is the one her ferrets eat when nothing else works, so I
Timmy on that & an herbal tonic I found in Colo. on my way to Ind.
herbal tonic in water is the only thing he would consistently drink on
own. It is similar to KM or other products. Dr. Susan also prescribed
Tinic liquid vitamins 1/2cc 2x day, and Deliver 2.0 (which replaced
HCN) 6cc 3xday.
By the time I got to Boulder to see Dr.
at the All Pets clinic there he said the lymphoma was 85% GONE! Dr.
does Chinese herbs, homeopathy, and acupuncture on 4 legged people! His
name was given to me by Dr. Nye, Susan's' partner. He also added
the same people take, 30mg caps., 1/10 2xday, and Immuplex 4960 by
Process inc., 1/2 cap 2xday. This product I've found at a local health
, and am told many chiropractors prescribe it.
So here is the recipe that has evolved for my
that may help some of you who have sick little people. He would take
from a dish or spoon but the most seem to get in him by offering via a
syringe with no needle, of course. I think maybe it stimulates a
reflex so he will eat some 5 to 20cc at a sitting, 3 or 4 times a day.
increased to over 35cc later as he got better:) I have available for
free taking, water with a table spoon of the herbal formula that has
28 herbs and fruit extracts. Dr. Susan was familiar with 3/4 of them
said she was moving into that area as the AMA type medicine even for
vets had nothing good to offer for many cancers. In short I am applying
some 2000 hours of research I did when my brother had leukemia. He had
AMA belief model though, and it poisoned him to death in 1989. Timmy
not have that handicap so he's doing much better.
Timmys' (origional) "super food":
1- 4oz jar Gerber Turkey rice, or chicken
organic is good if available.
1 tsp. clover honey 1/3rd can of Deliver 2.0
(any pharmacy can order), you can freeze remainder of can in Tupperware
containers. [This can decrease if he gains too much weight later,
it out eventually.]
7 cc Chei Shei herbal tonic
The contents of 2 caps of Immuplex 4960, Standard
Process co., Palmyra, Wi. 53156; Available from Nature's Alternative;
About 40% of a 30mg. CoQ-10 cap
1 Tsp. Ferratone
1 cc pet Tinic vitamins (vet or pet supply)
Feed 20-40cc 2-4x day or what ever he will eat.
his chin gets wet we have to pause to wipe it dry, he likes to be neat!
Afterwards he rubs & stretches on the carpet & seems to feel
better. He still sleeps more than the others, but he seems alert &
no pain, sleeping peacefully, so I'm glad he's here with me. The rest
the batch my other guys finish eagerly. I hope to perhaps visit Dr.
later this year with him mostly or fully recovered. It would be a mile
in treatment for our little friends & family.
One thing that really helped is my friend Mason
Ind. repeatedly telling me to be aggressive in positive treatment with
Not just grieve, thinking there's nothing we can do to help! Talking to
them & telling them you love them & am glad they're alive
does help give them something to live for. It's just like us 2 legged
we need something & someone to live for. I've gone thru some bad
of chronic fatigue & depression & these little guys at times
made a difference for me also. "We're all in this together".
Peace, love & ferret kisses, Gary
Timmy is now eating Whiskas Kit Nips, which has 5
animal proteins, & is helping keep his teeth clean. His energy has
as heÕs now playing with the others, something he had not done
over 4 months! : IT IS THE ONLY DRY FOOD TIMMY IS EATING! Update
Dr. Benesh of Chandler AZ. has certified Timmy to have NO PALPABLE
MASSES AT ALL! (FULLY HEALED!) Thank you God and all your helpers!
In late Jan, 1995 Timmy got out thru a hole I
know I had under the sink, into the basement of the motor home, and out
of a gap there was between the sewer hose & the basement wall. At
going around shaking a can of raisins (their favorite) did no good. I
up posters & left out a carrier with food & water, but no good.
I about gave up but my friend Mason again was
saying go further with more signs, don't give up! Another person said
the word "REWARD" in big letters. I was finally told by a guy
in a liquor store that a lady next door had found a ferret a couple of
ago. My strongest prayer was that Timmy be found OK not just for his or
my benefit, but all the other ferrets that could be helped by what he
going thru. The lady was not home, so I left a sign on their fence, and
went to the end of the block & across the 6 lane highway. Coming
I noticed the sign was gone, so I went over & found her husband
I explained my loss, he went inside, and brought out a skinny (er)
After crying for joy, I remembered the word
and even though the man requested nothing, I happily gave him what I
in my wallet:) Later that evening his wife called my asking if they
come over & give me a bottle of ferret shampoo they had bought for
I said yes, and then she asked if she could take a picture of her
holding Timmy, as she had fallen in love with him is the short time
had him. Again, of course I said yes.
She then explained she found Timmy about 3 hours
he was missing, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SIX LANE HIGHWAY, WITH CARS GOING
HIM, BUT NOT TOUCHING HIM! My strongest prayer had been answered, and
this day, ever time I think of it, I thank not just God, but many of
helpers, including perhaps my departed Mom, for looking after him>:)
So Timmy is TWICE my miracle child, for which I
As I sit here on May, 1996, Timmy is still very
and healthy, and I am still humbly grateful. His recipe is being used
over the world, I'm told, and as tears form in my eyes I realize he has
a part in saving ferret lives on an ongoing basis:) neat:)
Mr. Bear, a eulogy:
11/18/96 Phoenix, AZ.
You came into my life on 1/3/90, and left on
fourth, a few days ago. You and sister Silky, who's doing fine health
gave much joy to our house. My only regret was listening over 3 years
to the Nutro company rep when she said you needed to eat their Max
food instead of the cat recipe. When the owner of the store later heard
that you got an enlarged spleen & Silky got a hardened kidney after
only a couple of months on the stuff, he commented that the rep got a
of the higher cost of the product. He theorized that the ethoxyquin
as a preservative was higher in the kitten formula and just overloaded
poor systems. I heard other horror stories from other people with even
animals having many problems. It is supposed to be limited to only 2
for use in humans, it's too toxic to be allowed in higher dose uses.
only people defending it's use seem to get $$ from it, or don't know
companies successfully use vit.'s E & C instead. We were never able
to reverse the damage it caused.
Last year you became quite listless and refused
Having just found out about colloidal silver, I figured it was worth a
I was happy to see your spleen reduce to half size, & you played
gave kisses again.:)
Last summer, early July, you got ascites of the
fluid building up like filling a balloon. A good vet here did a lot of
& said there were nodules on your spleen now, & the fluid
to be from the lymph system. He said taking out the spleen might not
and you'd have only 2/3rd chance of living thru the operation. He said
was good odds in Vegas, but lousy for an operation.
I began the trip to Boulder to see Dr. Dave who
Timmy beat the "terminal lymphoma". Stopping in the Springs to
see a highly recommended vet, he said to "re-evaluate you later, &
consider euthanasia". I was not impressed.
Dr. Dave gave some herbs for the ascites that
seem any better than the Lympho Clear by Enzaymatic Therapy co. that I
you over to from the lasix. By Sept. you were needing force feeding
stopped eating on your own. It didn't look good. You had a couple of
crashes when your blood sugar went so low you just layed there &
My friend Susanne here at 2am helped me recognize what was happening,
2cc of clover honey in your mouth brought you up to be able to eat some
recipe & get back on track. I then realized you needed hand feeding
at least 3x/day. Other remedies were tried with no noticeable helpful
Making a long story shorter, we gave you human
gobulin, .02cc/day, & in 3-4 days you were eating out of a cup
giving kisses:) This was in Sept., & it was starting to snow, so we
started the trip back to warm country here. Stopping in Denver, we
to pick up a ferret that needed a home with fewer than the 60 animals
was living with. He was being picked on by some of the females there,
spent a lot of time in his cage, alone. Your sister tried picking on
as did Sadi, but he seemed to defend himself over here. Tina, who was
adrenal signs, did not fight with him, but it's thought that she was so
stressed out that she pooped mint green jelly! I was told it seemed
not the ece, & caused from stress. Well. it spread to everyone
and Sachi to this day doesn't have normal poop, but more like nutri-cal
with a green tinge. Some people are saying the ece mutated &
a 2 week variety & that's what it was.
The new ferret, Dave, was away when his house got
the ece, & his mom swears that it was gone as she had other people
& not catch it. I don't know, but I think maybe he was so healthy
carried something though he showed no signs of illness, & still
He wound up with another friend who had an older ferret loose it's mate
not long ago.
You were finally stable enough to complete the
to warm land here, but on Sunday, 11/3, you just seemed to be breathing
shallow & faster. You had trouble the last few days even walking to
the paper towels that became your litter pan, since it was too much
to climb into the regular one. I sensed it was becoming work to stay
something more than just needing more sleep. I had the strong sense
your mom may be waiting for you on the other side, and told you so. I
you permission to leave if it was becoming too much work for you to
here. I told you how much I & the rest of your family loved you,
wished you only happiness. I kissed you goodnight and placed you back
your ski cap in the little tent under the table, on it's soft padded
that had the heating pad set on very low, but warm enough to help you
warm with less work for your little body.
I heard not a sound the night thru, but the next
found that you had left us. Living in the motor home & not having a
yard to place you in, I found Susanne offering to let me place you with
her many departed ferrets and other friends in her back yard. I cleaned
you up, placed you with your favorite bunny that you used to put your
on to rest while your other ferret family played. I placed you both in
ski hat that gave you so much comfort in your last days, and Susanne's
Ken helped to place you where it will never snow, and is under the
of a big tree. There is a nice view of green grass & flowers, &
your physical form has the company of many other departed friends of
I had to stop here & cry for awhile, the
I've done since too many "things" had to be done these last days
since your leaving. I understand you're happy with your mom &
not in any pain any more, but we who are left here feel the pain of
you. We wish you well until the day we leave this world & can join
in the land that is without pain. Please say hi to Squeaky, Slinky,
& Sam, give them our best & tell them we miss them too.
Sincerely & with most Love,
Gary & the gang of fur ->
Thru joining, their grief has been transmuted to joy,
loneliness to celebration...

While I am writing all this Bunny (my 95% bald
rescue) came up & said Hi:) She even grew some fur back on her
& really is a joy to see.
Below is the ladies' plea & my answer.:
>>>>>>>>>>> from: "KELLY LYNN
To: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 1997 15:16:48 EST MIME-Version: 1.0 Subject:
I have an elderly female ferret that has been
with adrenal tumor cancer that has metasticized into over twelve
She weighs only 1.1lbs and has lost most of her hair. She HATES meat,
cat food, and mushy dry food. I am desperate to try holistic medicine
a last result in fighting her cancer, as the numer ous vets and
have told me my three choices are to "euthanize" her, let her
pass away naturally (and possibly suffer) or to try experimental drugs
most likely suffer). Great alternatives!. .
She still has an appetite but appears to be in
when she moves a certain way or while she is sleeping (she makes
loud and painful sounding grunt/whimpers in her sleep). I could use any
advise, help or recipes you could offer. If you would like to know more
or specific information about little Farrah please let me know. Thank
so much, Kelly McClung
First off, they do not suffer if they do not have
an operation for the adrenal thing. They go bald, but last Easter
we got a rescue that we named Bunny, who's 95% bald. She was estimated
be 7-8 years old. I put her on Timmy's recipe, & saw a holistic Dr.
in Co. who helped Timmy recover. Dr. Dave Rx'd something called
1/4 tab. twice daily in baby food, or whatever.. She is still doing
almost a year later now! It started with the shelter mom, Susanne,
that in her experience, that adrenal cases live for maby 18 months
going bald, with or without the operation. Some die during the
itself, and the most that seems to be gained is some fur that they
really care about as much as the humans do. BY ALL MEANS DO NOT let
talk you into killing her if she seems to get around at all. Bunny gave
and gives kisses, eats dry food every couple of hours, and does fine,
though she can't see very well...
She also developed some insulinoma (low blood
problems, that I first saw when I heard her gasping one day months ago.
She would arch her head back, gasping, then not breathe at all for some
20 secs. I administered 2cc of clover honey oral, on the gums &
the tounge, which I learned about when my Mr. Bear went lethargic &
drooling. He would recover in 5 min., but it took 20 min. for Bunny. I
enriched the recipe with 1/3rd Deliver 2.0, which has hi calories that
up the blood sugar longer than regular food. I gave that once a day
she had another episode. I then set an alarm to remind me to give her
mix every 6 hrs. or so. In about a month or so, she ate dry food
Pro Plan, her choice) every 2.5 hours or so. This is keeping her blood
up so that I only give her the mix once a day & she's doing fine.
There is a lot you can do to help her along,
let anyone tell you there's nothing that can be done, or scare you into
giving her poisons called chemo.
Here's the continuing story of
