While I did not have as good of an experience of Dr. Khalsa as have others, note that these blogs could be biased, too. Even allopathic doctors can be criticized by such, sometimes for purely for political/economic reasons. Often, you have to follow the money.
I know of an animal who had multiple tumors (including brain ones) who was helped by alternative medicine (specifically, U-Fn and some other unverified things), but their caretaker was also using allopathic approaches. It may or may not have been the alternative treatments. IMHO, both approaches have their valid treaments, and a true complementary mixing of them is best. I have lost animals due to listening to vets who were strictly holistic, and would never do that again. On the other hand, it seems that using the immune system to help overcome diseases is a solid approach, since that's how spontaneous remission seems to work. There are allopathic researchers that are now suggesting this, and who are working on or have seemingly figured out how to induce this natural response---in a higher percentage of cases than with conventional cancer treatments (the latter which are reported in peer-reviewed journals, so you can look them up; the former you have to read the hospitals' reports). That said, I doubt I would use black salve, having seen some pictures of what it did to sensitive individuals. Since holistic folks do not report outcomes the way the allopaths do, it would be hard to figure out what its success rate is. Dr. Khalsa reported that she got rid of her cat's tumor using rice-based (not-mushroom-based) PSP, but I was not able to get it into my cat no matter what, so I can't verify any personal results. I did notice a change in quality of my cat's mammary tumor when I used DH water on her, but it did not change the size nor stop its growth. The oncologist was surprised she'd lasted as long as she did without allopathic intervention, and perhaps this was due to the supplements I was giving her. However, I now believe she would have had a better chance if I had removed the tumor right away, as that cancer is so aggressive in cats. I may also have tried to reduce it via Dr. Khalsa's approach of getting the immune system up for reducing the tumor, but that would be a bit risky, given the statistical outcomes based on the size of tumor when it's removed. As with Steve Jobs, sometimes it might be best to go the allopathic route---especially if they've figured something out. I believe that Richard Feynman was prudent when he said true scientists should stay open to whatever their data is telling them.
