Talking Cancer Treatment Seems to Be Working!

When I got back home from Florida on January 18, I found Ju's cere was crusty and chocolate brown again. A month or two before, his cere turned brown but turned blue again in a about a week. It came back some time in January, and this was worse. I started him on dandelion root tea immediately. It seemed to help. His cere started turning blue again, he started singing again, he quit isolating himself, and he just seemed happier. However, he quit drinking the tea and his cere turned brown again, so I decided to start dosing his sprouts daily with a ton of powdered dandelion root, which has helped him out a lot. He seems even healthier than when he was on the tea, and he's made up with Charlie and is being more social, active, and outgoing. His cere is even more blue than it was before, and he has a lot of energy now.

I'm pretty sure it's testicular cancer because of the change of colour in his cere and because his tail has begun to curve to the left, which I attribute to a tumor pressing on his nerves. I took some pictures today of his cere. They're not the best pictures ever, but they give you an idea of how much he's improved.






Seriously guys, his cere was completely chocolate brown and crusty like a hen ready to breed. I can't believe how much he's improved! I had read an article on how a medical trial is taking place in Windsor to test out the effectiveness of dandelion root in treating cancer. It turns out that in a lab setting, the dandelion root caused a variety of different cancer cells to commit suicide. In the lab, it killed a lot of different types of cancer.

I think that the powdered dandelion root I've been mixing in their sprouts is fighting the cancer, and that's why his cere is almost completely back to normal again .

Sorry the pictures are sideways! Just crane your necks a bit . The pictures I took were too big to post on here so I had to shrink the file size, so now they're not as clear. Also, his cere looks darker and more brown in the pictures than it is in real life. The picture don't show how his cere has "layers" of colour either. As his cere becomes more blue, the top layers of his cere kind of come off and reveal bluer layers underneath. It's hard to explain.

Robyn,

I'm so glad to hear the dandelion root seems to be working for Ju -- that is EXCELLENT news!

If you use PhotoBucket (accounts are free) instead of doing attachments from your computer the pictures will show up full size and rotated correctly.

Thanks So much for sharing this, Robyn! My male budgie, Bluebie, became lame for awhile in November, and has now also developed a brown cere. As I don't have a good vet to take him to, I am Thrilled to be able to try treating him with dandelion root powder here at home.
I Really appreciate the hope you have offered by sharing your experience here - I will definitely let you know if and when I notice results in Bluebie...

Thanks everyone . He's a great guy and I'm glad he's improving, or at the very least, not getting any worse. I'll upload the pictures on PhotoBucket tonight.

I'm glad to hear I could help your boy out . Hopefully your boy will benefit from powdered dandelion root. It's really good for the liver and kidneys too. I usually buy $10 of dandelion root at the health food store, then I grind it into a fine powder with the coffee grinder that I only use for the budgies. I'd start out only mixing a bit into his wet food (mash, pumpkin, sweet potato, sprouts, etc.), then steadily increase until you can put a ton of the powder in his wet food. I'll have to take a picture to show how much powder I put in. All I can say is mix in as much powder as your boy can tolerate without turning his beak up at it.

I look forward to hearing the results, as I'm sure you are. Oh, I should also tell you it will take at least two weeks to see any results, but when they happen, they happen fast!

I truly hope the dandelion root will help your little Bluebie. I'm probably one of the few people who can say they know how excited you are . With many illnesses, there's a variety of effective treatment options, however, cancer and kidney disease are very bad. A brown cere on a male is a serious thing, so when you can find something that can potentially treat cancer and kidney disease (both of which are possible causes of brown ceres) safely, then it's pretty awesome .

Again, I'd like to thank everyone for the well wishes and whatnot.

Here's a link to the PhotoBucket pictures. I don't know if there's much of an improvement in clarity with these ones. https://photobucket.com/albums/af70/t...Mobile Uploads
