NONI JUICE - anyone have any experience?


#1

I am going to be giving Noni juice to my Roddy dog as part of his homeopathic cancer treatments - stop laughing, you guys…now, does anyone have any experience using Noni juice to help with health issues?

even human ones???


#2

Is that the same thing as Tahiti juice made from the noni fruit?


#3

I found these sites with information regarding Noni juice and its promoters. If you still want to give it to your dog, hopefully it won’t do any harm. I work near a man who is a believer, however and is as stubborn as the day is long when given scientific data.

Please look into homeopathy a bit deeper than the health food stores. It is expensive and the formulae are so dilute as to be nonexistent, therefore any benefit experienced is likely due to the Placebo effect. Save your money is my recommendation, but then, I am a woman of science and need to have peer reviewed articles to become a believer.

I am truly sorry your dog is sick. I hope there is something that the vet can do for him/her.

Are you seeing a homeopathic vet? They should be able to tell you if this is a good product to use. Also, there are many online groups (like Yahoo) that have info on homeopathic pet treatments. I have found tons of useful info in groups like that.

I took it because it was prescribed by my pain-relief/accupuncture doc. Let us say that it frees you from any tendency to constipation. Got no benefit from it that outweighed the inconvenience of that effect. Whether your dog could benefit is beyond my experience.

Thanks for the websites! I have not gotten any yet so you may have saved me some money!

Has anyone had any experience with using homeopathic remedies during chemo therapy and found it to be positive?

Hi:
I live in Hawaii where we can find Noni fruit trees growing in backyards. I’ve encountered a few people of Hawaiian backgrounds who did tell me that the juice (taking the fruit and letting it ferment in water by soaking it) …I believe that is what I was told, did help people suffering from cancer. But I do not have any personal experience.

I forgot to mention that the Noni fruit is a very stinky fruit. Smells like old cheese and tastes just as bad. The commercial juices may taste better but I’m not really sure.

oh good…stinky fruit…now, this may be what the scotty, a notoriously lover of stinky things just might WANT to help him fight his cancer…thank you, Joey’s wonderful Mom.

I am picking up Roddy’s cytoxen today and bygolly we are not goin’ down without a fight…I cannot imagine a better army: a Scot with an Irish/Italian Mom, armed with the Blessing of St. Francis, good solid veterinarian medicine and stinky fruit from Hawaii…out of our way…here we come…

My 45 yr old brother in law developped colon cancer. He went on a strict diet of no red meat, only pure distilled water, natural, organic foods and Noni juice. He lasted exactly the amount of time the doctor predicted (6 months).

I say, save your money, and prayers are going to do a heck of a lot more than the Noni juice will. Even praying for a pet is acceptable… St Francis might want to help you out with his intercession there.

But what if the answer to her prayer is Noni juice?

I am sorry for the loss of your brother in law. God called him home and no amount of Noni juice in the world could prevent God’s will from being done.

Thank you - in fact, we went to the Blessing of the Animals the night he was diagnosed and I think you are right…St. Francis will help us, either help ease Roddy’s time left here or help us fight this disease and win.

Well, Mom (God love her) bought him some of the Noni juice. It is full of vitamins which will be depleted on the cytoxen, so it can’t hurt to have him take it…

YW LSK. Hope it works. I found out today from my mom that our old dog Bronco 14 y.o. is having trouble getting up. He is suffering from arthritis, etc… My mom is treating him with bone meal and now will start giving him Glucosamine. My son and I are praying for him. :yup: I’ll say a prayer for your dog too. BTW, I had all our pets blessed by priests.

What kind of vitamins are in it? I had a pug dog many years ago, who began craving vitamin A & C rich foods–He about lived on liver, carrots, & fruit…Begged for the fruit & carrots (& other high A veggies).
It turned out that he had had cancer for a long time…He was happy & seemed well right up to one day, he laid down to sleep & never woke up…
When the vet did an autopsy, he told us, from the amount of cancer in his body, the little guy should have been dead months before…The 1st question he asked was what we had been feeding him…It turns out that he was craving exactly what his body needed to fight the cancer.
This was an animal that cried if you looked at him wrong, so we knew he had not been in pain.

I have never heard of noni juice, but if it is going to replenish vitamins in his body, this could greatly improve the quality of his life–i.e., relief of pain & sick feelings. It might even increase his life span; who knows??
A lot of people thought that the whole family was nuts to be cooking liver for a dog…Liver was what made him strong to fight the illness.
God bless you & your dog, too…

Well, I don’t think you went nuts at all…:whacky: so just move on over for Mama Leslie and her fur baby, Roddy McDuff…
There is a wonderful website about helping dogs fight cancer that I got to through nexttag.com. My mom, Roddy ‘Grandma’ did buy the Noni juice and from the bottle, what I see is lots of vitamins A and C which will be depleted by the meds he will be on…and the dog food he’ll be eating will be chock full of all the same kind of stuff, as well as being high in easily digestible protein etc.

I think I will let my mom know about the liver…I can smell it cooking right now…

Roddy UPDATE:

after what - two days? The little Scot now sits pretty and tilts back his head for his bit 'o the juice in the morning and night. apparently the stuff tastes good. so, even if it does nothing to help him with his chemo, it will make his days on the earth happy and yummy and you know WHAT??? for that alone, it is worth the $$$$$…lololol

That’s just wonderful. I just love your positive attitude. :bounce:

Ummmmm. I have people at work selling it and attaching magnetic signs to the sides of their cars. There’s also a person living down the road from me who has a flag type sign in their front yard. My tendency would be to listen to those folk of Polynesian ancestry who just might have some experience with this. I mean how many of us grow aloe plants and use them when we burn our fingers cooking? I know we do. Aloe works, why not noni juice? (Except that I am not going to pay $40 a bottle).


#18

I actually work in a lab next to a group of scientists who research the antioxidant claims of various health foods and supplements. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen a couple of Noni bottles in their lab. I’ll try and remember to ask them what they think.

Otherwise, if your doggie likes it, what harm can there be? Many blessings and best of luck to you and him.

Roddy update - poor little guy had a rough day yesterday. It was the 4th day of the cytoxen…the swelling in his lymph glands is WAY down but he was pretty sick yesterday. He still wanted the Noni juice but that was about all…we are adding some ginger to it to help with the upset stomach. Today the little scot just sleeps while I had to go to work. The funny part is he goes outside to throw up, tries to dig a hole near the fence line to throw up into - fastidious dog. These are the same dogs that will find something stinky and immediately roll in it and then try and drag it into the house…

go figure…

And, last night, Roddy’s cancer went into my Jesus Box. While I know I can do all I am supposed to do as a Steward of this little creature , I had to really go to Jesus and hand Him my feelings, worries, hopes, tears and joy around my little guy. I wrote during my Adoration hour…I don’t know how to express this other than I feel as though I am being a big girl about all of this, like Jesus would have me be, and I just pray to be the woman I am supposed to be and not the selfish ‘keep the dog alive forever because I love him’ dogowner I can be…
