Parasites Infections in Humans and Animals

The Role of a Healthy Liver

The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies parasites as among the six most dangerous diseases that infect humans. Parasites outrank cancer as the number one global killer, and account for many of the digestive woes from which people suffer. Dr. Oz, the now famous Oprah Winfrey guest says..."ninety percent of humans will have a problem with parasites in their lifetime." Worm parasites are more common than most people expect, and they are listed as The Center for Disease Control's #1 Health Risk. According to numerous studies, nearly 85% of Americans have parasites in their bodies.

Healing Teas Teas Are One of The Most Effective Ways to Benefit from Nature's Healing Herbs

Teas can help fight depression and anxiety, heal skin conditions and gastrointestinal disorders, regulate hormone imbalances, improve your sex life, prevent illness, and help you heal faster. Many diseases and conditions for which we turn to modern medicine can also be treated naturally with healing herbs. These treatments can be safer, less expensive and possibly even more effective than traditional methods.

Infection by pathogenic parasites

The CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that over sixty million people in the United States are likely infected with Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite associated with raw meat and contact with cat feces. height= New research shows that parasites not only control the behavior of their hosts, they can change entire ecosystems to suit their needs. "Hookworms sink their teeth into the intestinal walls of more than a billion people every day to drink their fill of blood." According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. Your intestines provide the perfect breeding ground for parasites, who enjoy making their homes nestled within impacted waste as well as in the linings of colon walls. Living inside our intestines, these microorganisms gain the upper hand by virtue of their sheer numbers – both in kind and in population. They thrive because of the unique ways in which they have adapted their life cycles in order to ensure the perpetuation of their species within their unsuspecting hosts: us.Not all of these people live in third world countries; many in the developed world have any number of parasitic infections, some of which are so highly contagious that extremely casual contact with something that has been handled by an infected person can infect another person. Symptoms may vary depending on the type and amount of infestation. The worms may go undetected for years with no apparent symptoms, or they may be seen in the stool.

Cindy Engel Ph.D. - "Infection by pathogenic parasites may be a symptom of ill health, rather than the simple or single cause. We are all surrounded by zillions of bacteria, fungi, worms, insects and predators out looking for an easy meal. Each host species carries many parasites specialised in attacking that species alone, and many more that can be shared with others. There are more species of parasite than there are host species. Parasitism is the norm for life on this planet, not the exception. Nonetheless, a healthy animal host usually resists severe infection. It is the already debilitated animal, or the one living in an exceptionally infectious environment, that succumbs. "...when defences are insufficient to the task, the parasite population becomes uncontrollable, and the plant or animal gets sick and may die. In death, the rot really sets in, as other species take advantage of the now undefended nutrients." Engels is the author of Wild Health

ANIMALS: Natural prevention and treatments of worms, parasites and liver condition in animals

Almost everyone has parasites. It's simply a fact of life. Even Dr. Oz, the now famous Oprah Winfrey guest says...ninety percent of humans will have a problem with parasites in their lifetime. Parasites are not just something that other people get – a malady reserved for citizens of developing countries. Everywhere we go, during just about everything we do, North Americans are vulnerable to parasitic infestation.Pinworms, tapeworms, and roundworms are parasites existing in the intestinal tract. The three most common types of worms found in the body are: the thread or seat worms (Oxyurix vermicularis), the roundworm (Ascares lumbricoides--lumbrici), and the tapeworm (Taeince-taenia solium, Bothriocephalus latus). There are other less-common worm types that enter the body, such as hookworms (Ancylostoma duodenal, Nectar Americanus) and those of unclean pork (Trichinella spiralis), which thrive upon various conditions of filth and degeneration. The intestinal roundworm Ascaris lumbricoides infection in humans follows the ingestion of Ascaris eggs that have contaminated foods or soil. In the small intestine the larvae are liberated and migrate through the intestinal wall, reaching the lungs, where they may produce a host sensitization that results in lung inflammation and fluid retention. About 10 days later, the larvae pass from the respiratory passages into the digestive tract and mature into egg-producing worms, which grow to some 15 to 40 cm (6 to 16 inches) in length, in the small intestine. Serious, even fatal,Native Americans knew that humans are plagued by parasites. Other native peoples, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, also knew that humans, like animals, have parasitescomplications of ascariasis result from the infiltration of the larvae into sensitive tissues, such as the brain, and from the migration of the adult worms into various body structures where they produce abcesses and toxic manifestations. Ascariasis exists worldwide and is believed to affect some 660 million persons.

Adult worms live in the lumen of the small intestine. A female may produce up to 240,000 eggs per day, which are passed with the feces . Fertile eggs embryonate and become infective after 18 days to several weeks , depending on the environmental conditions (optimum: moist, warm, shaded soil). After infective eggs are swallowed , the larvae hatch , invade the intestinal mucosa, and are carried via the portal, then systemic circulation to the lungs . The larvae mature further in the lungs (10 to 14 days), penetrate the alveolar walls, ascend the bronchial tree to the throat, and are swallowed . Upon reaching the small intestine, they develop into adult worms . Between 2 and 3 months are required from ingestion of the infective eggs to oviposition by the adult female. Adult worms can live 1 to 2 years

Round worms

"I was experiencing tightness in my chest, discomfort in my lungs and constant coughing. I was told by doctors that I had chronic bronchitis. I'm not a smoker, yet I would cough every morning like an 80 years old smoker. After drinking VelociTea for a about 2 months all my symptoms cleared up. On the 3rd day of drinking the tea, I had expelled round worms just like the ones on the photo. The colon is where health and disease start!" Alex Kennedy

It's Not a Tumor - Doctors Find Worm In Woman's Brain Instead - Doctors in Arizona thought a Phoenix-area woman had a possible brain tumor, but it turned out there was something else penetrating her brain – a worm. Watch the video below


Dr. Hulda Clark - " I have seen that eczema is due to roundworms. Seizures are caused by a single roundworm , Ascarts, getting into the brain. Schizophrenia and depression are caused by parasites in the brain. Asthma is caused by Ascaris in the lungs. Diabetes is caused by the pancreatic fluke of cattle, Eurytrema. Migraines are caused by the threadworm, Strongyloides. Acme rosacea is caused by a Leishmania. Much human heart disease is caused by dog heartworm, Dirofilaria. And the list goes on and on."

Many diseases and conditions for which we turn to modern medicine can also be treated naturally with healing herbs, medicinal food, other natural remedies--and these treatments can be safer, less expensive and possibly even more effective than traditional methods. Plants are endowed with important nutrients and potent healing compounds. When you brew plants in water, the resulting beverage, herbal tea, is imbued with those constituents, carrying them into your body, where they are quickly absorbed. Teas are easy to prepare, inexpensive, nutrient rich, and delicious! Certain herbs such as blessed thistle commonly known as holy thistle have extraordinary therapeutic potential. Blessed thistle (a major ingredient in VelociTea) has been recorded as far back as the early sixteenth century for treating smallpox, fever, anorexia, dyspepsia, indigestion, constipation, and flatulence.

ANIMALS: Natural prevention and treatments of worms, parasites and liver condition in animals



The Role of the Immune System in Controlling Parasites in Humans and Animals

Parasite infestations may be severe or mild and can be life threatening, especially for children. A common side affect is the POOR absorption of critical nutrients for growth potentially leading to anemia, growth problems, and a weakened immune function creating susceptibility for disease. According to numerous books, parasites are commonly found in people with AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, candidiasis, and many other disorders. Symptoms may include abdominal pains, diarrhea, anemia, cardiac insufficiency, nausea, perianal and perineal pruritis, dysentery, amebic hepatitis, weight loss, intestinal toxemia, colic and cirrhosis.

Linda Page, N.D. Ph.D. writes that our immune system is our bodyguard. It works both pro-actively and protectively to shield you from anything in your world that threatens your life and limb. Our immune system is ever-vigilant, constantly searching for proteins, called antigens, that don't belong in our body. It can deal with a wide range of pathogens - viruses, funguses, bacteria and parasites. It can even recognize potential antigens, such as drugs, pollens, insect venoms and chemicals in foods, and malignant cells and foreign tissue, such as transplanted organs or transfused blood. learn how to improve the immune system naturally

I have seen that eczema is due to roundworms. Seizures are caused by a single roundworm , Ascarts, getting into the brain. Schizophrenia and depression are caused by parasites in the brain. Asthma is caused by Ascaris in the lungs. Diabetes is caused by the pancreatic fluke of cattle, Eurytrema. Migraines are caused by the threadworm, Strongyloides. Acme rosacea is caused by a Leishmania. Much human heart disease is caused by dog heartworm, Dirofilaria. And the list goes on and on.When I was a child I was in poor health and my weak immune system could not protect me against all sorts of infections and parasites. I had tapeworms. Now, in perfect health and with a strong immune system, I don't have to worry about parasites of infections anymore. The same is true for my German Shepherd dog, Shasta. Her heatlhy immune system protects her against all types of parasites. I believe that a strong immune system can protect people or animals from any type of parasites. Read what Dr. Brown and Dr. Pollak say about our animal's health and immune system. Shirley
Many parasites colonize the absorptive surface of your dog or cat’s small intestine, causing problems with nutrient absorption. Parasites also use the nutrition intended for your pet. Some parasitic infections cause an inflammatory response in the intestine which can result in increased permeability and susceptibility to other diseases. Routine deworming of your pet (most monthly flea preventives also contain a dewormer) can cause disruption of the normal bacterial environment. Parasites are always attracted to the weakest of the species. The likelihood your pet will develop a parasitic infection is directly related to how healthy he or she is. When an animal is weak (from excessive drug use, poor diet or genetic factors), parasites are more likely to gain a foothold. If you’re deworming your pet on a regular basis (for example, monthly), there’s a good chance the dewormer is not even effectively treating the parasites your pet hasNatural prevention and treatments of worms, parasites and liver condition in animals

Clay is an excellent vermifuge, attracting and binding internal parasites and packaging them for disposal. Knishinsky’s research suggests that the regular intake of liquid clay (typically one to three tablespoons daily, in divided doses) can produce other benefits including parasite removal from the intestines, allergy and hay fever relief, and elimination of anemia and acne. For example, clay helps anemia because it contains both types of dietary iron (ferrous and ferric) in an easily assimilated form; it reduces discomfort from allergies by quickly neutralizing allergens that would otherwise produce allergic reactions; and it reduces heartburn and indigestion by absorbing excess stomach acids.

Dr. Cohen - "In addition to the role it plays as a potent detoxifier, Calcium Montmorillonite Clay has also been used extensively in the treatment of pain, open wounds, colitis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, intestinal problems, acne, anemia, and a variety of other health issues. Clay not only cures minor problems, such as diarrhea and constipation through local application; it acts on all the organs—on the whole organism. Everything unhealthy, that emits negative radiations is irresistibly attracted to clay and becomes subject to immediate elimination."

Guess What Came To Dinner - Parasites And Your Health

Gittleman has exhaustively studied the parasite world, particularly its relation to human health and nutrition. Readers without some background in clinical parasitology may also have a hard time staying with Gittleman through the technical section that serves as a reference guide to the individual parasites. The chapter on prevention provides the most accessible information. There, the author gives clear and usable instructions on avoiding parasite-induced illnesses via good personal hygiene, proper infant and child care, sensible sexual practices, sanitary animal care, careful travel practices and safe water usage and food handling.

Dr. Ted H Spence, DDS, ND, PhD/DSc, MPH - "Detoxification comes in many forms and refers to many different programs that cleanse the body of toxins. Today, our environment is toxic and the foods we eat, even the air we breathe and the water we drink is laden with chemicals foreign to our system. Therefore, everyone is undergoing some type of detoxification to maintain life and health. Although basic detoxification begins with diet, detox programs may include nutritional fortification for the liver, lungs, kidneys, bowels and blood. Detoxification for the body may refer to the cleansing of the bowels, kidneys, lungs, the liver or the blood, since these are the organs involved in detoxification of chemicals and toxins from the body. The liver acts as an in-line filter for the removal of foreign substances and wastes from the blood. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood into the urine, while the lungs remove volatile gases as we breathe."

The importance of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract

The secret to good health lies in the friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract. Lactobacillus bacteria form a significant part of the natural intestinal flora. Large populations of this, and other lactic acid producing bacteria, regulate the levels of friendly bacteria and reduce the levels of toxic pathogens that cause ill health. The reproduction ability of the bacteria in the gut is the single most important factor in a probiotic product. The bacteria must be in their natural state and alive so that once they arrive in the gut they can multiply and produce all the sub- strains necessary to maintain a healthy intestinal flora. To ensure that the bacteria are in a natural organic state and have not been tampered with or altered in any way it should be certified organic. In-Liven has been certified organic by the ACO (Australian Certified Organic), Australia’s largest certifying body. Common warning signs of a bacterial imbalance:

Allergies and food sensitivities
Difficulty losing weight, sugar/carbohydrate craving
Frequent fatigue, poor concentration
Frequent constipation or diarrhoea
Faulty digestion, acid reflux and other gut disorders
Sleeping poorly, night sweats
Painful joint inflammation, stiffness
Bad breath, gum disease and dental problems
Frequent colds, flu or infections
Chronic yeast problems
Acne, eczema skin and foot fungus
Extreme menstrual or menopausal symptoms

Herbal Parasite Remedies
by Hulda Regehr Clark Ph.D

The material you are about to read is quoted from Dr. Hulda's book, The Cure for all Diseases. It is presented here as a public information service only. All rights are reserved by the author and/or the publisher.

Getting rid of all these parasites would be absolutely impossible using clinical medicines that can kill only one or two parasites each. Such medicines also tend to make you quite ill. Flaghl is used for Amoebas and Giardia. When the correct dosage is used, it can cause extreme nausea and vomiting. Quinine used for Malaria is quite toxic. Imagine taking 1O such drugs to kill a dozen of your parasites! That may be a great strategy for drug makers, but not for you.

There is a better way. Three herbs can rid you of over 100 different types of parasites! And without so much as a headache! Without nausea! And without interfering with any other drug that you may need to take! Does this sound too fantastic? Just too good to be true? These herbs are nature's gift to us. The herbs you need are:

* Black Walnut Green Tincture
* Wormwood Tincture
* Cloves Tincture

If you use them together you will rid yourself of all these parasites. They must be used together as a single treatment. If you kill only the adults, the tiny stages and eggs will soon grow into new adults. If you kill only eggs, the million stages already loose in your body will soon grow into adults and make more eggs. So all the herbs should be used together as a single treatment.

The green hull surrounding the nut of the black walnut tree is a miraculous parasiticide. After it has turned black it is useless. The large green balls fall to the ground early in the fall. In a week or two they will be black and decaying. Therefore, anyone wishing to make parasiticide must be careful not to let the critical time for harvesting pass. I encourage everyone to make their own parasiticide, and to take back the responsibility of keeping themselves and their families free of these tiny monsters. The recipe for Black Walnut Green Hull Tincture is given in Recipes.

Note that it is a tincture -- extracted using grain alcohol -- rather than an ordinary extract, which use water. The Black Walnut extract available from some herb companies is not potent enough to make an effective parasiticide. It is black, not pale green, indicating that the critical harvesting time had passed. Of course there is no time to make your own if you have fast growing or metastasizing cancer (See the chapter on Sources).

These three herbs must be used together. Black walnut hull and wormwood kill adults and developmental stages of at least 100 parasites. Cloves kill the eggs. Only if you use them together will you rid yourself of parasites. If you kill only the adults, the tiny stages and eggs will soon grow into new adults. If you kill only the eggs, the million stages already loose in your body will soon grow into adults and make more eggs. They must be used together as a single treatment.

It is the green hull surrounding the nut of the black walnut tree that has this miraculous parasiticide. After it has turned black, it is useless. The large green balls fall to the ground early in the fall. In a week or two they will be black and decaying. Therefore, anyone wishing to make parasiticide must be careful not to let the critical time for harvesting pass. I encourage everyone to make their own parasiticides and to take back the responsibility for keeping themselves and their families free of these tiny monsters. The recipe for Black Walnut Hull Tincture (extra strength) is given in Recipes (page 503).

Note that it is a tincture (extracted using grain alcohol), not an ordinary extract (which uses water). The black walnut extract that is available from herb companies is not potent as a parasiticide. It is black, not pale green, indicating that the critical harvesting time had passed. Of course there is no time to make your own if you have fast growing or metastasizing cancer. See the chapter Sources.

You will only need one 1 oz. bottle. While you are waiting for it to arrive, get your other 2 herbs ready: wormwood and cloves. Wormwood consists of the leaves of the Artemisia shrub. My recommendation is that you grow it yourself if you have any space to do so. Wormwood seed is available from seed catalogs, see Sources.

The amount you need to cure a cancer is very small, yet you cannot do without it. But the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has regulated it as toxic! It is therefore unavailable in concentrated form from herb companies. The evidence for toxicity accepted by the FDA must have been hearsay. I have never seen a case of toxicity, not so much as a headache or nausea. The toxic level must be much higher than is needed to kill these parasites.

This shrub is called wormwood for good reason: it kills worms! There is quite a bit of confusion over which Artemisia is the true wormwood. Books and nurseries can be wrong, even though they assure you they are correct! Buy Artemisia absynthium for your garden. Wormwood goes back to antiquity and is mentioned in the Bible.

If you grow your own, dry the leaves when they are in their prime. The leaves are greenish gray and quite bitter. Nobody would accidentally eat too much of them. Adults may put them in capsules. For a child, crumble ¼ tsp. and stir into honey. I have not done experiments to be more precise than this. Wormwood capsules are available as a combination of Artemisia, and other herbs (see Sources).

The third herb necessary to cure cancer is cloves. This is the common spice used in baking. It needs to be ground up in order to release its parasite killing properties. You can buy a can of whole cloves and grind them in a blender or grinder. Store-bought "ground cloves" do not work! Their parasite killing properties have evaporated long ago. Ground cloves from a health food store or herb shop may not work either! They may have been ground years ago.

The Parasite Menace in Humans

The Parasite Menace in Animals


Animal Liver Disease and Parasites The Liver: A Powerful Shield in a Giant Battle

Dr. Deb Forster, B.S., D.V.M. - "In my 20 plus years as a veterinary practitioner, I’ve treated many cases of liver disease, and I’ve followed both conventional and alternative methods of healing. In these pages, Cyndi Smasal has compiled an excellent guide to help treat liver disease in dogs, our best friends and companions. And, it’s in a great format that will allow readers to download it off the World Wide Web. I started working with Cyndi and Norman four months into her alternative treatment. I’ve never met a more dedicated pet owner. She became a student and now a teacher of alternative veterinary medicine, nutrition, supplements and homeopathic remedies. I have personally seen Norman benefit from her loving care, homemade dog food, and nutritional supplements.

The concept of a special diet for liver disease is not a novel one. But in this book, Cyndi addresses the topic from a very personal and truthful level. She has tried everything that could possibly be helpful for her dog, much more than what she’s listed in these pages. She’s put all the results of her research into an easy to read, concise book that fills a tremendous need in the pet-lover community. You will find her determination inspiring in addition to solid information about a complex disease. This book is by no means the answer to all of your dog’s needs, but it provides a great start for treating your dog with liver disease in collaboration with a qualified veterinarian. This is vital information that needs to be available for every pet-lover who has a dog with liver disease." Click here to learn more....

In 1997 Canine Health Concern conducted a survey on 4000 dogs and found that 61.5% of dogs developed liver failure within three months of being vaccinated ,73.1% of epileptic dogs first became epileptic within three months of being vaccinated, 64.9% of dogs with behavioural problems started to be a problem within three months of vaccination. Health Hazard of Routine Vaccination: placing our animals at risk

Why is liver functioning so important for my pet?
The liver is the second largest organ in the body and is often seen as the most important one. In traditional Chinese medicine, for example, a healthy liver is seen as the most critical element in the body's ability to fight disease and function optimally. Amongst other important functions, the liver is responsible for eliminating and detoxifying the poisons that enter the blood stream. It also produces bile which is essential in the breakdown of fats and is the organ which stores Vitamin A, D, E and K. Environmental pollution, processed and unhealthy foods, prescription drugs, frequent vaccinations and sedentary lifestyles all contribute to sluggish and diseased livers. The result? Pets with depressed immune systems, constant fatigue, obesity, sluggish livers and digestive systems, allergies, respiratory ailments, unhealthy skin and many other health problems. A sluggish or diseased liver can seriously compromise your pet's health and increase the chances of systemic illness. How do I know if my pet has a problem liver? click here for the answer

"Last fall my cat became really sick with severe liver failure, she actually went down to being just skin and bones. A friend of mine, a veterinary assistant and nutritionist of many years, told me that the only way I could possibly save my cat was by force feeding her a high protein diet every two hours. I had read years ago that it is actually the wrong approach to feed an ill person protein since it takes too much energy to digest, so when my cat declined cat food and tuna I decided to follow the wisdom of her body. The only thing I ever forced her to take was marine phytoplankton (Frequen~Sea) (1/2 to 1 teaspoon a day) and filtered water and Pedialyte for hydration. I also did energy healing on her and prayed for her. could notice a small improvement in my cat after a few days of Frequen~Sea and energy healing combined. My rationale was to help her detoxify and clean out the liver, and the Frequen~Sea would be giving her the energy to stay alive and work through this phase. With her weight loss I decided to deal later. Over the course of several weeks with these "treatments" my cat slowly got a little strength back, also gained a little bit of weight. I would put pureed tuna and tuna water on my hand and entice her to take some all the time, but never forced her. The first thing that she decided to eat on her own again was the seed part of cantaloupe, one of her favorites. I decided to keep trusting her body - it actually made perfect sense that she would eat this first since it cleans the body because of the high water content. From here she progressed to pieces of cantaloupe, then some tuna and some kitten food (only out of my hand), all the while I kept giving her the Frequen~Sea once or twice a day which I squirted into her mouth with a syringe without a needle. After about 5 months my cat became healthy again and gained her normal strength and weight back. Her fur is actually more silky and beautiful now than it ever was before. I put a few drops of FrequenSea into the water bowls for all of my cats every day now - their furs have also become softer and shinier, they throw up hairballs less frequently. In my opinion the combination of FrequenSea and energy healing is almost foolproof, an opinion that was also supported by Dr. Rodier." Annette K. more about marine phytoplankton's healing power

Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D. says that marine phytoplankton contains almost everything one needs to sustain life and to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally. Marine phytoplankton has been called "the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet". Containing a wide range of trace elements, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes and cellular materials, marine phytoplankton promotes and maintains optimum health by boosting and supporting all systems within the body. Its antioxidants and unique polysaccharides can halt the genetic mutations that can lead to cancer. Both high levels of saccharides and adaptogens increase energy and stamina by improving our ability to consume and use oxygen. Adaptogens also improve cardiovascular health by strengthening the heart and circulation.The Role of Marine Phytoplankton, Glyconutrients, in Healthy Liver Function

Feeding marine phytoplankton to your pet promotes: Shiny hair coat and supple skin - Healthier and stronger newborns - Improved milk production in lactating bitches and queens - Improved reproductive performance both for male and female - Aids in the healing process by offering the vitamins and minerals necessary for tissue repair - Better utilization and absorption of nutrients from foods ingested.

Pets have many of the same parasites that we get, including Ascaris (common roundworm), hookworm, Trichinella, Strongyloides, heartworm and a variety of tapeworms. Every pet living in your home should be deparasitized (cleared of parasites) and maintained on a parasite program. Monthly trips to your vet are not sufficient. You may not need to get rid of your pet to keep yourself free of parasites. But if you are quite ill it is best to board it with a friend until you are better. Your pet is part of your family and should be kept as sweet and clean and healthy as yourself. This is not difficult to achieve Dr. Karen Becker DVM - "Many parasites colonize the absorptive surface of your dog or cat’s small intestine, causing problems with nutrient absorption. Parasites also use the nutrition intended for your pet. Some parasitic infections cause an inflammatory response in the intestine which can result in increased permeability and susceptibility to other diseases. Routine deworming of your pet (most monthly flea preventives also contain a dewormer) can cause disruption of the normal bacterial environment. Parasites are always attracted to the weakest of the species. The likelihood your pet will develop a parasitic infection is directly related to how healthy he or she is. When an animal is weak (from excessive drug use, poor diet or genetic factors), parasites are more likely to gain a foothold. If you’re deworming your pet on a regular basis (for example, monthly), there’s a good chance the dewormer is not even effectively treating the parasites your pet has."

Animal Liver Disease


Pets Worms and Parasites: natural prevention and treatments

An animal with a healthy immune system will be less likely to become infected with dog worms, including heartworm. Mosquitoes are less likely to bite healthy dogs. In addition, the healthy animals own defense system is able to kill off the larvae of any heartworm that may enter the bloodstream, thus preventing them from reaching maturity and causing harm. Factors that will weaken your dog's immune systeminclude frequent vaccination, commercial pet foods, incorrect diet, stress and even conventional heartworm and other synthetic medication.

Pets have many of the same parasites that we get, including Ascaris (common roundworm), hookworm, Trichinella, Strongyloides, heartworm and a variety of tapeworms. Every pet living in your home should be deparasitized (cleared of parasites) and maintained on a parasite program. Monthly trips to your vet are not sufficient. You may not need to get rid of your pet to keep yourself free of parasites. But if you are quite ill it is best to board it with a friend until you are better. Your pet is part of your family and should be kept as sweet and clean and healthy as yourself. This is not difficult to achieve. Learn about the VelociTea Holy Detoxification Tea

Native Americans knew that humans are plagued by parasites. Other native peoples, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, also knew that humans, like animals, have parasites. Parasitic infections arise from the intrusion worms that live in the intestinal tract of the body. Worm parasites are more common than most people expect, and they are listed as The Center for Disease Control's #1 Health Risk. According to numerous studies, nearly 85% of Americans have parasites in their bodies.Parasites Infections

The Role of a Healthy Liver

Most people don't know that a weak liver can be the cause of many chronic health problems. Gallbladder problems, constant fatigue, sleep disorders, heart palpitations, poor memory, skin problems, allergies, arthritis, thyroid problems, frequent numbness in the extremities, frequent infection and fainting are a few examples of what may result when the liver is stressed. In addition, women's health problems such as uterinefibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis and painful menstruation may also be the result of weak liver. When a dysfunctional liver goes undetected as an underlying cause, it can lead to an endless cycle of failed solutions and further guessing.

Illustration of the biliary system, showing the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and the duodenum with the appendant ducts.

The liver is the largest organ in your body, and carries the greatest workload of all the organs. The liver’s complex chemical factory works 24 hours a day converting the food that you eat into substances vital for life and neutralizing and destroying toxic substances. The liver is essential for fat and protein metabolism, the regulation of body cholesterol as well as adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones.

The natural course of life can cause the liver to get stressed, overworked, toxic and exhausted. Toxic chemicals, food preservatives, bad diet, environmental toxins, cigarettes, alcohol and prescription drugs all deteriorate the liver, drain its energy and make it hard or virtually impossible for it to do its job. Once the liver gets overloaded accumulating toxins, its life-sustaining functions begin to suffer and gradually drop out. This places the body in a state of emergency that debilitates and damages all other organs, leading to numerous chronic conditions afflicting millions daily. Life with a toxic or overloaded liver can be fatiguing, depressing, filled with disease, unwanted conditions.

When a dysfunctional liver goes undetected as an underlying cause, it can lead to an endless cycle of failed solutions and further guessing. Ultimately, a person’s health can only be as good as his liver is. A bad liver will affect all other organs without exception. It could deter healing, slow down recovery, cause fatigue, weak immunity, low energy, weight gain, depression, ailments of all sorts including degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis and much more.

According to "National Geographic," studies, various chemicals from our foods and environment that indicate man contributes 700,000 tons of pollutants into the air every day, ranging from everyday household cleaners to cosmetics and hair dyes. Without a nutritionally rich diet that nourishes and assists the body in cleansing these substances from the body, the body will lose its strength and vitality. The immune system will become suppressed, contributing to an increase in illness, disease and excess body fat - a major killer in America today. Antiviral herbs to help protect liver cells from viral infection

The liver is our ultimate cleaner and has two critical functions: to process nutrients and eliminate toxins from the body. It does this by filtering the blood at about two quarts a minute. Approximately 25% of all the blood in the body is filtered through the liver at any one time. Some glutathione is released directly by the liver into the bloodstream where it helps to maintain the strength of red blood cells while also protecting the white blood cells. Large quantities of Glutathione are found in the liver where a two-stage detoxification process takes place. Phase One begins the chemical conversion of harmful compounds that are mainly fat-soluble into intermediate forms. But Phase Two is where the final transformation takes place to converts the intermediate toxins into water-soluble substances that can be excreted thru the bowel or kidneys. Only water-soluble substances can be excreted. If there is not enough Glutathione to generate the Phase two enzymes, toxins will build to dangerous levels in the liver. Unlike unnatural detoxification supplements, the use of Glutathione is a natural process that allows our body to perform its filtering capability organically and comfortably. Glutathione is a critical element for good health, strong immune function, cancer prevention and the slowing of the aging process. Basically, increasing Glutathione levels enhances life.

Dr. Jimmy Gutman, M.D - "Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases. Glutathione levels diminish as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency."

Dr. Allan Somersall M.D - "To raise glutathione levelsis to reduce premature oxidation, to quench destructive free radicals and help detoxify the poisons inside each cell when it needs to. Only Immunocal is clinically proven to do that in a safe, effective and convenient way."

In an open study the clinical efficacy of milk serum (whey) protein (Immunocal; cysteine content: 7.6-fold higher than that of casein) isolated from fresh milk and purified without heating was evaluated in 25 patients with chronic hepatitis B or C. Immunocal (12 g as protein) food (mousse) was given twice a day, in the morning and evening, for 12 weeks (test period). Casein (12 g as protein) food (mousse) was similarly given for two weeks prior to the start of the supplement with Immunocal food (induction period) and for four weeks after the end of the supplement with Immunocal food (follow-up period). Serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) activity was reduced, and plasma glutathione (GSH) levels increased in six and five of eight patients with chronic hepatitis B, respectively, 12 weeks after the start of the supplement with Immunocal food. Serum lipid peroxide levels significantly decreased, and interleukin (IL)-2 levels and natural killer (NK) activity significantly increased. However, there were no significant Immunocal-related changes in 17 patients with chronic hepatitis C. These findings suggest that the long-term supplement withImmunocal alone may be effective for improving liver dysfunctions in patients with chronic hepatitis B.

"Approximately five years ago I was feeling listless and generally in ill health so I thought I would go see my Doctor. After a complete blood count I found I had type II diabetes and also the Hepatitis C virus. When I asked my doctor what Hepatitis-C was he informed me that they didn't know a whole lot about it yet and called it non A non-B Hepatitis. I decided to venture off on my own to see where a naturopathic/homeopathic course would lead. At this time in my life I was excited and motivated to read and hear everything I could get my hands on to heal myself. After all, your body is magical and given what it needs, the body can heal and repair itself. Anyway, through eating mostly wholesome foods and proper supplementation, I was making excellent progress until my blood test 6 months ago showed my viral load count, which had previously been going down steadily, suddenly shot up higher than ever. I was devastated by this news. After many more tests I made the decision to go on a Doctor prescribed drug called Peg-Interferon and have been administering it for the last 5 months. The side effects from this drug can be severe and do alter your life style quite a bit. Some of these side effects were weight and hair loss, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and oh yea, loss of libido. Loss of Libido? Nobody said anything about loss of Libido before I began the treatments. Then, I was introduced to Immunocal (to boost the glutathione level) and Magistral. Two packs of Immunocal in the morning and two late in the afternoon have changed my life. I am no longer fatigued during the day, the muscle aches and pains are gone, the rashes, did I mention the rashes? Well they are gone too. No more soreness on the bottoms of my feet, headaches, sensitive skin, my appetite has improved so I am gaining weight back slowly and my outlook on life has never been better. I am also happy to report that since starting on a tablespoon of Magistral in the morning and one at night and after only nine days my Libido has returned. My wife Susie and I are delighted! Thank you Dr. Bounous and Immunotec Research for giving me my life back., Jeff Beban

"Six months ago I was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. I always took very good care of myself, so it was very difficult for me to admit and accept that I had contracted HCV. Looking back over the past few years, I could see that my energy level was decreasing. I just thought it was related to my age. My doctor feels that I may not be a candidate for Interferon and Ribavirin treatment. His plan is to perform tests every three months for the next year to see if there are any trend lines available to help further decision making. Three months ago, I started taking one packet of Immunocal daily (to boost the glutathione level), along with other supplements that I was previously taking. I continued to take one packet daily for around a month and started to feel slightly better physically. However, I still felt weak and had a hard time getting through the day. I then decided to take two packets of Immunocal daily, and within a few days started to feel much stronger physically, and more balanced mentally and emotionally. I just received my first three-month set of test results. I compared them with previous test results and could clearly see an improvement. I am Optimistic that I will continue to improve and look forward to my next three month test results."

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver normally caused by a viral infection. The Liver is a critical organ responsible for filtering harmful substances from the blood stream including dead cells, fats, toxins, excess hormones and bilirubin, a yellowish substance created during the breakdown of red blood cells. Improper liver function from Hepatitis may cause the liver to enlarge, be enflamed, tender and unable to function normally causing toxins to build up in the body that should normally be removed. Various forms of Hepatitis may lead to cirrhosis of the liver or chronic liver disease and subsequent death.

Moringa has been observed to be an effective treatment against a wide array of liver diseases, such as both chronic and acute hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, fatty degeneration of the liver, and the metabolic liver disease brought about by alcohol and drug use. This is because moringa not only stops the toxicity that causes these diseases, but also helps reverse it. On its own, the liver is a very resilient organ, able to regenerate its cells and grow back even after over half of it is destroyed or removed. Moringa accelerates this regeneration process by about four times the normal speed, eventually helping the liver regain full functionality. Learn more about the healing power of Moringa

Hepatitis C was Killing Me Until Alternative Medicine did what Conventional Medicine Could not (Danger of Interferon drug) "...In conclusion, when I stopped my interferon treatment in February 1996, my liver enzymes were; ALT - 41, AST - 52 and Gamma GT - 87. On December 18th, 1998, my liver enzymes were; ALT - 22 (normal 0 - 28); AST - 25 (normal 0 - 31) and Gamma GT - 31 (normal 0 - 35). For the first time in 16 years, I AM NORMAL!! The doctor was thrilled and told me to keep doing what I am doing because it is saving my life. I am still not sure that she believes that the vitamins and herbs are the reason but I think she must be wondering."

How & Why Do Gallstones Form?

Gallstones form when liquid stored in the gallbladder hardens into pieces of stone-like material. The liquid, called bile, is used to help the body digest fats. Bile is made in the liver, then stored in the gallbladder until the body needs to digest fat. At that time, the gallbladder contracts and pushes the bile into a tube--called the common bile duct--that carries it to the small intestine, where it helps with digestion.

Bile contains water, cholesterol, fats, bile salts, proteins, and bilirubin. Bile salts break up fat, and bilirubin gives bile and stool a yellowish color. If the liquid bile contains too much cholesterol, bile salts, or bilirubin, under certain conditions it can harden into stones. The two types of gallstones are cholesterol stones and pigment stones. Cholesterol stones are usually yellow-green and are made primarily of hardened cholesterol. They account for about 80 percent of gallstones. Pigment stones are small, dark stones made of bilirubin. Gallstones can be as small as a grain of sandor as large as a golf ball. The gallbladder can develop just one large stone, hundreds of tiny stones, or almost any combination.

Gallstones can block the normal flow of bile if they lodge in any of the ducts that carry bile from the liver to the small intestine. That includes the hepatic ducts, which carry bile out of the liver; the cystic duct, which takes bile to and from the gallbladder; and the common bile duct, which takes bile from the cystic and hepatic ducts to the small intestine. Bile trapped in these ducts can cause inflammation in the gallbladder, the ducts, or, rarely, the liver. Other ducts open into the common bile duct, including the pancreatic duct, which carries digestive enzymes out of the pancreas. If a gallstone blocks the opening to that duct, digestive enzymes can become trapped in the pancreas and cause an extremely painful inflammation called gallstone pancreatitis. If any of these ducts remain blocked for a significant period of time, severe--possibly fatal--damage or infections can occur, affecting the gallbladder, liver, or pancreas. Warning signs of a serious problem are fever, jaundice, and persistent pain.

Milk Thistle has a long therapeutic history for the treatment of liver disorders

Milk thistle (Silybum marianum - syn. Carduus marianus L.) is a common herb that has been used as a liver tonic for at least 2,000 years. It was mentioned by Theophrastus (4th century B.C.) with the name of Pternix and by Pliny the Elder (1st century A.D.) with the name of Sillybum. Von Haller (1744) in its "Medizinischen Lexicon" documented the specific use of the plant for liver disorders. In the 19th and 20th centuries many authors such as Rademacher, Schulz and Henry Leclerc mentioned the fruits of S. marianum for the treatment of liver diseases, disorders of the bile duct and spleen.

Milk thistle - which has many anti-aging properties - is in the daisy family. It is able to bind to the squishy membrane of our cells and form aprotective "shield" from such things as alcohol, environmental pollutants, poisonous mushrooms, and prescription drugs. Research published in the scientific journal Hepatology. Research indicates that milk thistle can be used successfully to treat not only cirrhosis but also hepatitis (liver inflammation and dysfunction) caused by viral infection and excess alcohol consumption. In addition to protecting us, milk thistle can also serve as a “biological janitor.”

The liver uses glutathione to process; alcohol, caffeine, medications, nicotine as an example, to process such substances and remove them from the blood. It also helps in the filtering of alcohol and other toxic substances from the blood. It helps in the processing drugs and medications absorbed through the digestive system, enabling the body to use them effectively and ultimately dispose of them. Reduced glutathione plays a critical role in the cellular detoxification processes including the metabolism of peroxides, the conjugation with electrophils and the scavenging of the free radicals. The relevance of glutathione in ethanol metabolism consists mainly in compensating for alcohol-related oxidative stress. Glutathione acts as a detoxifying agent by combining with undesirable substances and ridding the body of them through urine and bile.

For over 2,000 years Europeans have used Milk Thistle seeds as an herbal treatment for liver disorders. Human studies have found milk thistle seed extract beneficial in treating alcoholic liver disease, drug-induced liver disease, bile duct inflammation and chronic hepatitis.

Milk thistle seeds contain a bioflavonoid complex known as silymarin. This constituent is responsible for the medical benefits of the plant (according to Wagner H, Horhammer L, Munster R. in their article "The chemistry of silymarin (silybin), the active principle of the fruits of Silybum marianum (l.) Gaertner", published in Arzneim-Forsch Drug Research 1968; 18: 688-96.) Silymarin is a mixture of chemical compounds (called flavonolignans) that may help protect and even repair the liver. Researchers hypothesize that it blocks toxins from entering liver cells. The liver is the only organ that can regenerate itself, and silymarin may accelerate this process by stimulating the production of the proteins that are the building blocks of new liver cells. Finally, some data suggests that silymarin is an antioxidant, which means it might protect cells from damage by scavenging oxygen molecules called free radicals.

Virtually all parts of the plant have been used as food with no reports of toxicity. Animal experiments have shown that seed extracts are safe, even in large doses, with practically no side effects, as well as no embryo-toxic effect. Literally hundreds of research studies, mostly in Europe, have confirmed the remarkable ability of milk thistle to protect the liver against virtually all types of damage: from accidental exposure to chemical pollutants, toxic side effects of medications, liver diseases like hepatitis and even the self inflicted damage from overindulgence of rich food and alcohol.

The United States National Library of Medicine has catalogued more than 300 scientific studies of milk thistle and its active compounds in their medicine database. Powerful Detox Liver Formula with Milk Thistle Extract

Schizandra (FS) is a well-known Chinese herb which has been widely used in ancient China. During recent decades, it has been found to be effective in viral and chemical induced hepatitis. In this paper, we report the studies on the chemical constituents and pharmacological actions of FS on mice liver. The results indicated that FS and its several components can mainly protect liver from injury induced by toxic substances such as CCl4; they have anti-oxidant activities against oxygen free radicals; FS and four components have inducing action on liver cytochrome P-450; they also promote certain anabolic metabolism such as serum protein biosynthesis and glycogenesis. All these activities would be of importance in the protection and repair of the injured liver cells. Schizandra

Can Homeopathy Cure Hepatitis C? by Cindee Gardner, Ph.D.
Hepatitis C is a disease of a relatively recent origin. Not much has been known about the treatment of this disease and the medical fraternity is still studying the role of medicines in this disorder. Based on the analysis of cases of Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B treated with homoeopathy, it can be concluded that Homoeopathy may have a significant role to play in the treatment of Hepatitis C also. Homoeopathic medicines can safely be taken along with the conventional medicines. Homoeopathy can help to control the viral load in case of this disease. It can also be beneficial in preventing the complications such as cirrhosis of the liver. However, the cases of Hepatitis C which are treated with Homoeopathy must be followed up for a period of at least 10 years to arrive to certain conclusions.

LIVER, WEIGHT GAIN and DEPRESSION
Weight gain and depression are just two common manifestations of a congested, overworked liver. Following are the most common symptoms and conditions: Being on edge (easily stressed), clevated cholesterol, skin conditions, skin irritation, depression, sleep difficulties, fat indigestion, kidney damage, heart damage, brain damage, Hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue, weight fain, poor memory, PMS, mental fog, blood sugar disorders, allergies, obesity. If you have tried many ways to improve your health and energy level and nothing seemed to adequately help, it is very possible that your overworked liver underlies your difficulties. Restoring liver function is one of the most important and vital actions you could ever do for your health. When the liver gets congested and toxic, it will remain that way and get worse until it gets detoxified and rejuvenated. Congestion throughout the body and a sluggish liver can contribute not only to fatigue and malaise, but also to weight gain, especially around the abdomen, cellulite, and water retention. When we cleanse the liver and then eat the right foods, liver metabolism will improve and we start burning fat. As liver function improves, so does energy. With more energy, fitness improves, because we have the ability to exercise more and improve our muscle tone.

  • The Role of Our Liver in Weight Gain Weight gain and depression are just two common manifestations of a congested, overworked liver.
  • Raw Food Diet - There is evidence to show that cooked food makes it more difficult for the food to absorb and work on a cellular level where it needs to work. When the food cannot work at the cellular level, the cells can become deficient and/or toxic. This leads to deficiency and toxicity of the whole body making the body less able to function optimally.
  • Therapeutic Fasting and Internal Cleansing give your cells and yourselves the opportunity to cleanse, nourish, rejuvenate and heal.

Slippery Elm

I used to give slippery elm powder to my late handicapped son, Sterling, to help him with his digestive problems. I belive that without slippery elm, Sterling wouldn't have lived as long as he did. (read Sterling's story)

According to the herbal materia medica, Slippery Elm has a most soothing and healing action on all the parts it comes in contact with. Taken unsweetened, three times a day, Elm Food gives excellent results in gastritis, gastric catarrh, indigestion, mucous colitis and enteritis, diarrhea, being tolerated by the stomach when all other foods fail, and is of great value in bronchitis, bleeding from the lungs and consumption (being most healing to the lungs), soothing a cough and building up and preventing wasting.

Slippery Elm Food is generally made by mixing a teaspoonful of the powder into a thin and perfectly smooth paste with cold water and then pouring on a pint of boiling water, steadily stirring meanwhile. It can, if desired, be flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg or lemon rind. This makes an excellent drink in cases of irritation of the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines, and taken at night will induce sleep. In times of famine, early American settlers used slippery elm as a survival food. A strengthening, soothing demulcent herb, slippery elm is ideal for sore, inflamed, ulcerated mucous membranes and wasting disease. Slippery elm can be used by weak or debilitated people as a mild food to help build up the body. It is especially helpful when no other food can be kept down. It is a highly nutritive, tonic herbal food and is further helpful for conditions of tissue deficiency.

Detoxification for Optimum Health
Chemicals and Toxins Are The Primary Cause of Illness, Disease and Obesity

Substances that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we use, and the metabolic waste produced inside us. Toxins build-up in the body contribute to premature aging and chronic and degenerative diseases. Studies have discovered various chemicals from our foods and environment that indicate man contributes 700,000 tons of pollutants into the air every day, ranging from everyday household cleaners to cosmetics and hair dyes. Chemicals and toxins accumulate in fat tissue. The more chemicals and toxins, the more fat the body manufactures.


Fulvic Acid

Fulvic acids, a natural extract from ancient plant deposit that was created 75 million years ago in the upper cretaceous period, consist of an immense arsenal and array of naturally occuring phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals. Fulvic Acids greatly enhance the bioavailability of important trace minerals. Regenerate and prolong the residence time of essential nutrients in the cells. Modify the damage or toxic compounds such as heavy metals and free radicals. Enhance the permeability for digestive, circulatory, and cell membranes.

As the most powerful, natural electrolyte known, fulvic acid restores electrical balance to damaged cells, neutralizes toxins and can eliminate food poisoning within minutes.

To the science of living cells, fulvic acids are vital in bringing substantial amounts of nutrients and minerals into water solution and delivering their living energies to the living cells.(do not confuse "fulvic acid" with "folic acid" which is a common B vitamin)

1. Parsley water: cook a big bunch of fresh parsley in a quart of water for 3 minutes. Throw away the parsley. After cooling, you may freeze most of it in several 1 cup containers. This is a month's supply. Put 1 tsp. parsley water on the pet's food. You don't have to watch it go down. Whatever amount is eaten is satisfactory.

All dosages are based on a 10 pound (5 kilo) cat or dog. Double them for a 20 pound pet, and so forth.

Pets are so full of parasites, you must be quite careful not to deparasitize too quickly. The purpose of the parsley water is to keep the kidneys flowing well so dead parasite refuse is eliminated promptly. They get quite fond of their parsley water. Perhaps they can sense the benefit it brings them. Do this for a week before starting the Black Walnut Hull Tincture.

2. Black Walnut Hull Tincture (regular strength): 1 drop on the food. Don't force them to eat it. Count carefully. Treat cats only twice a week. Treat dogs daily, for instance a 30 pound dog would get 3 drops per day (but work up to it, increasing one drop per day). Do not use Extra Strength.

If your pet vomits or has diarrhea, you may expect to see worms. This is extremely infectious and hazardous. Never let a child clean up a pet mess. Begin by pouring salt and iodine on the mess and letting it stand for 5 minutes before cleaning it up. Clean up outdoor messes the same way. Finally, clean your hands with diluted grain alcohol (dilute 1 part alcohol with 4 parts water) or vodka. Be careful to keep all alcohol out of sight of children; don't rely on discipline for this. Be careful not to buy isopropyl rubbing alcohol for this purpose.

Start the wormwooda week later.

  1. Wormwood capsules: (200-300 mg wormwood per capsule) open a capsule and put the smallest pinch possible on their dry food. Do this for a week before starting the cloves.
4. Cloves: put the smallest pinch possible on their dry food.

Keep all of this up as a routine so that you need not fear your pets. Also, notice how peppy and happy they become.

Go slowly so the pet can learn to eat all of it. To repeat:

Week 1: parsley water.

Week 2: parsley water and black walnut.

Week 3: parsley water, black walnut, and wormwood.

Week 4: parsley water, black walnut, wormwood, and cloves.

Native Americans knew that humans are plagued by parasites. Other native peoples, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, also knew that humans, like animals, have parasites. Parasitic infections arise from the intrusion worms that live in the intestinal tract of the body. Worm parasites are more common than most people expect, and they are listed as The Center for Disease Control's #1 Health Risk. According to numerous studies, nearly 85% of Americans have parasites in their bodies.Parasites Infections in Humans and Pets

Pets with a strong immune system may be protected from all sorts of diseases, including heartworm. Read what Drs. Page, Brown, and Pollaks are saying:

  • Charles W. Brown, DVM - "My colleagues and I have found this product (transfer factor) to be very effective in modulating the immune system. Transfer factor is a "soup" of immune-modulating factors, which contains a leukocyte-type molecule that can passively transfer immunity from one mammal to another by stimulating cell-mediated immunity and is antigen specific. Richard Bennett, Ph.D., an Infectious Disease Microbiologist and Immunologist from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, believes this could be the most significant development in animal health care in decades. We have a great number of veterinarians and clients who are experiencing very positive results in a broad area of disorders, including periodontal."more about boosting the immune system with Transfer Factor
  • William Pollak D.V.M. - "Recent studies have shown processed foods (cooked food) to be a factor in increasing numbers of pets suffering from cancer, arthritis, obesity, dental disease and heart disease, comments Dr Wysong. Dull or unhealthy coats are a common problem with cats and dogs and poor diet is usually the cause, according to many veterinarians and breeders. "Dogs, cats and other animals live for years on foods that come out of bags, cans and boxes. But do these foods promote health? If they did, our companion animals would enjoy long, happy lives free of arthritis, hip dysplasia, eye problems, ear problems, fleas and other parasites, gum disease, lick granulomas, thyroid imbalances, skin and coat problems, personality disorders, birth defects, breeding problems, diabetes, cancer and other major and minor illnesses. Before World War II, most North Americans fed their pets raw bones and table scraps. Today, everyone uses convenience foods, and pet food companies are industry giants. Diet isn't the only thing that has changed. So has life expectancy, with the life span of many breeds now less than half what it was two or three decades ago. Skin and coat problems are so common that we accept them as unavoidable, and today's vets routinely treat conditions that used to be unusual or even rare."learn more: The Poisons in Pet Food
  • Jeffrey Levy. DVM - Heartworm parasite is a source of great anxiety among dog caretakers. Thanks in large part to the scare tactics of many veterinarians in promoting preventive drugs, many people believe that contracting heartworms is the equivalent of a death sentence for their dogs. This is not true. learn why
  • Linda Page, N.D. Ph.D. writes that our immune system is our bodyguard. It works both pro-actively and protectively to shield you from anything in your world that threatens your life and limb. Our immune system is ever-vigilant, constantly searching for proteins, called antigens, that don't belong in our body. It can deal with a wide range of pathogens - viruses, funguses, bacteria and parasites. It can even recognize potential antigens, such as drugs, pollens, insect venoms and chemicals in foods, and malignant cells and foreign tissue, such as transplanted organs or transfused blood. This is also true for our animals. I believe that a strong immune system can protect animals from heartworm. Read what Dr. Brown and Dr. Pollak says about our animal's health and immune system.

"Our pets are prone to suffer from minerals and trace mineral deficiency. For optimum health, I supplement Shasta's diet (and my diet too) with the following: fulvic minerals (consist of an immense arsenal and array of naturally occuring powerful phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals), bee pollen (rich in naturally occuring vitamins), kelp (marine plants), the right kind of salt (not common table salt) and clay (to promote healing and to detoxify) and with flaxoil (also knows as linseed oil - rich source of omega 3 fatty acids). Shasta does not drink tap water. I give her only filtered water which is free from toxic chlorine and fluoride. I never cook or warm up food in a microwave oven.
