Well, new to us, at least.  Neoplasene is a plant-based medication used to treat all forms of cancer.  This extract from the bloodroot plant has been used by Native Americans for years, but the process has recently been enhanced.  It is available in topical, injectable, and oral forms and is available only through veterinarians.  Treatment usually consists of a combination of injectable + oral medications, topical + oral medications, or a combination of all three, depending on the size and location of cancer.

Neoplasene causes diseased or cancerous cells to die, and then the tumor either falls off the patient's body or is removed by the patient's immune system.  If the tumor is large and visible, Then the wound left behind may also be large and will need to be managed until healed.  If the tumor is internal and extensive, then the patient may have side effects such a fever, swelling and lethargy as its immune systems battles the dying cancer.   The oral medication can also trigger nasea and loss of appetite, so patients require a specially designed homemade diet to help prevent these side effects.

Dr. Wolinski has treated 3 cases thus far and continues to learn about the potential for this amazing treatment.
