Blind Dog Got Her Vision Back Without Surgery

Daisy is my loving good natured Golden Retriever. Shortly after a routine rabies vaccine at age 9, Daisy’s health deteriorated rapidly. She developed an under active thyroid resulting in a downward spiral of health, such as Obesity, (i.e. 40 lbs. overweight), dry flaky skin, (that came off in sheets), dry brittle hair with substantial hair loss & blindness due to cataracts, even though she was on a raw food diet.

The vet’s thyroid diet & medication complicated matters. Poor Daisy could only see shadows & needed constant care. She was completely winded going to the water bowl and back to her cushion - a mere 15 feet, round trip. I started her on holistic program while boosting her immune system with the natural immune enhancing substances.

On the 8th day she started to see more than just shadows. On the 14th day, she needed less assistance in getting around. By the 3rd week she was reacquainting herself with her environment! She was even tackling the staircase all by herself, using the wall as a guide. In one month her eyes were less opaque and she was able to distinguish objects such as doorways and furniture without running into them. Now she can romp around on one acre of land without getting lost!

The only thing I did differently was give her Mother Nature’s perfect vaccine with no side effects whatsoever! I am a professional and have worked with animal health for 43 years. Using my resources Daisy, who is now 13, has lost weight; restored her former soft skin & shiny coat.

Leg Stiffness and Pain in a Senior Dog

From Nancy Smith Nancyswellness@gmail.com 727-488-9969
February 19, 2012

"Sweety is our 11 year old Border Collie mix. Her mom and dad were mixed with Lab, Chow, and Pitbull so she is a big girl at about 80lbs. But she is so sweet and wants everyone to give her treats because she knows she is so pretty! About 1and 1/2 years ago she started having problems getting up after she had been laying down for a long period of time. It slowly progressed and she didn’t want to get up and run around so much either. We knew it was part of old age but we wanted to help her somehow, naturally. We tried Glucosamine, Cosamin, and even the nasty product called Rimadyl from the vet. None of these helped at all and the Rimadyl gave her bloody stools

This was about the time that Japan had the nuclear problem begin and people started talking about ways to protect their thyroid. I thought what about our dogs thyroids? So our search on the internet began. I came across Shirleys Wellness Café and Barbs Wellness. If I remember correctly I contacted Barb directly and we started talking about the radiation problems first. The rest is history! We started our dogs on clay

We also switched their food to the Life's Abundance dog food I think it was only about 1 week and my husband noticed Sweety was getting up a little easier. In a few months we caught her on our couch one morning and she runs now too! I totally believe Sweety is doing so much better thanks to Life's Abundance Food. I believe that The Lord sent us to Shirley and Barbs websites because they are such awesome people who really love animals so much and are sharing great information for people who want to help their pets they love so much."

Cat with intestinal tumor

From: Cheryl Sima lilzippy @ sbcglobal.net - December 17, 2006

The year was 2000 nearing Halloween our vet had a black kitten that fit in one hand. He was pitch black in color for the season that was just around the corner he felt he needed to give this kitten to a safe and loving family. I told my Mother and without any second thoughts she & my father said "Yes, bring him HOME!" We decided to name him LUCKY.

In December of 2005 he began to occasionally vomit. As time went on he continued vomit for no apparent reason. Upon trying to find out what was wrong my vet and I ran complete blood tests, x-rays, and other various types of tests and/or suggestions that my vet recommended. LUCKY continued to eat strong but he could not hold down his food. LUCKY went from 19# to 13# and in April 2006 my vet and I decided to take him to a specialist for an Ultrasound. The Ultrasound confirmed a Tumor in LUCKY'S Intestine. The specialist recommended going right to surgery since a biopsy would take a while for results and we would treat the tumor as malignant one. His surgery was a success with the surgeon taking out the tumor along with a swollen lymphnoid.

They were sent for a biopsy and the results were confirmed as Lymphosarcoma with no spread to the swollen Lymphnoid, or any other visual signs of the cancer spreading to other organs that the specialist could see visually. Chemotheropy was suggested two weeks after surgery to allow him to heal and halt the spread of the cancer if any. I had a choice of three options for chemo and chose the most aggressive attack, one treatment every week for 12 weeks.

In his seventh week check-up an ultrasound, chest x-ray, complete blood test showed no evidence of returning cancer. Upon asking the specialist how to keep this in remission he said to finish the 4 Chemo treatments and hope to keep him in remission. This is when I thought there was more I could do and we got on the computer and after weeks of searching found Shirley's Wellness Cafe, for which we are extremely thankful for her time as well as suggestion and direction. As we began to gather up all of the information we became over whelmed and she directed us to Barbara Raggio. That's when we learned how natural immune enhancing substances can help support and protect the immune system.

Through many emails and over the phone conversations Barb gave us suggestion on Holistic options and many other web sites on this subject. LUCKY finished his chemo and continued to eat, run, jump and play throughout his chemo. By the end of August 2006 and with Barb's help we chose our attack, detoxing to remove any toxins left in his body from the chemo, natural immune enhancing substances to support boost his immune system, Agaricus Liquid Extract, and improved nutrition with natural human grade pet food Pet Kibble for dogs and catsLife's Abundance Cat Food.

August 2006 LUCKY has been getting 1 capsule natural immune enhancing substances a day, 1/2 teaspoon marine phytoplankton 3-4 times a week, 2 oz. Agaricus Liquid Extract once a week all mixed in Life's Abundance Food. LUCKY is currently 16# and getting bigger every week and his stool is normal and healthy. He just came back from a checkup and there are NO signs of a tumor. Every day I come home from work LUCKY is there to greet me, he runs down the hall gives me a "head-butt" jumps on the table slides across the table and into the lamp. He is such a HAPPY CAT!!!!!!!!! We send this letter with Thanks to all of those who have helped us along the way. This is truly a LUCKY CHRISTMAS!

Miraculous Recovery of Extremely Sick Kitties In India
From Bonnie-Laila Bhattacharya, Gurgaon, India. email: bonnie.bhattachary@gmail.com

I have been practicing alternative medicine for almost ten years on myself along with leading a very healthy life. But when it came to my pets, I had done a grave mistake and gave them the so called best commercial food available in the market. Both wet and dry commercial cat food is nothingbut slow poison for our cats. Mother nature never taught our pets how to eat processed food...and thus, after ten years, my three out of five cats were critically I'll. One of them, my oldest fur ball - mitzi, had juvenile diabetes and his sugar levels had shot up to 300.

Otto, my second wonder fur ball had developed acute liver and kidney problems and bagira, my youngest baby who is barely a year old, had also a badly damaged liver. The babies were bags of bones in 4 days. The christmas of 2011 was the worst time of my life. I had never felt so sad and distraught. My babies were inching towards their graves and neither my vet, other vets or my pranic healing sessions on them were showing any miracles. That's when I chanced to find Shirley.

Shirley was really God sent to me. I mailed her with all the details of the problems and the first thing that I got from her, No Commercial Food to the pets! Then she guided me on how to treat my babies with natural products...wheatgerm grass and another natural medicine and the wonder capsule of TF+! I really had nothing to loose, I was already giving up all hope..... But after having tried the natural immune enhancing substances, on the third day, I had Mitzi, Otto and Bagira jumping all over trying to steal food from the plates of my other babies. Post this period, my babies have only moved forward with their health. I owe the health of my cats and dogs along with my happiness to none other than Shirley's educational website. I now have joined Shirley’s global network to help other people & animals with their health. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, if you need support.

Animals With Kidney/Renal Failure

Feline Kidney Failure
Name: Anne Bingenheimer Serravalle
Email: cserravalle @ adelphia.net
Location: Buffalo, New York

Dear Shirley,

I was moved by your web site and would like to share my story. It is nothing short of miraculous. I am a life long animal lover and have I have been extensively involved with pet rescue work and currently own many dogs I have pulled from kill shelters. As you have, years ago I cured myself of horrible diseases using alternative medicine. I applied this knowledge to my pets and only give them human grade pet foods, healthy people foods, and I only vaccinate for rabies (it has been found in my area) using a homeopathic rememdy when they are given. Many of my pets came from horrible situations, especially Elliott, a lab-mix who at 6 months old had been starved to the point of death and was left in a dumpster believed dead.

I rescued and immediately was able to save him using natural methods and he thrived under our care until 2/08. He developed some horrible life threatening disease that our traditional vet diagnosed as kidney failure . He began to fill with fluids, and his belly was so full with fluid he could hardly walk. His legs were filled and my wonderful friend was dying. We believe it was still related to the starvation, as his body hed formed while there was no food available to it.

Traditonal medicine han nothing to offer me or Elliott. Prednisone to reduce swelling. That not was going to cure Elliott. He was only 5, and faced death. After carefully going over with my vet my options which were really none, I contacted a holitstic vet who I had a connection with. She began treatment shortly after diagnosis. She used acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, and I put Elliott on a totally raw canine diet with healthy forms of highly digestible proteins like chicken (cooked), cottage cheese, alot of eggs, yogurt. and fruit. I eliminated the human grade dog food. This is where the story enters an unbelieveable realm.

In six weeks time my dying dog recovered. He lost all the fluid, he shines from head to foot, and he had severe muscle wasting because of his inability to process proteins. It all went away. I can only believe that we were touched by a miracle. I never wanted nor was I ready to say good bye to Elliott. I have never had an animal recover from being at death's door as Elliott was. I am telling you this story because maybe you can tell other people and they can tell other people.

Contact ShirleyMany people do not recover from kidney failure, but yet I have a dog that did. I believe we were touched by a miracle and I have been prividledged to have the knowlege that I do and to have been able to help my dying friend. Elliott was put on this earth with a divine hand and a divine purpose. He has taught me so much, and one of his greatest lessons was on forgiveness as he has never held a grudge against humans for what they did to him, and in spite of all he has lived through, he loves his life. He truly experiences joy and love. I wanted to thank you for trying to educated people. We were not left alone to face adversity. We are given many gifts to help.

Saving 14 year old cat from chronic renal failure
From: Kay Webb, North Carolina. kay@smnet.net

Cedric was found by my daughter,14 years ago, behind one of our out-buildings in Washington state. He was much too small and young to be weaned, but we had no idea where he came from. Two days previous I had prayed for a little kitten of my own because I had recently lost my precious dog and thought perhaps a kitten would be nice to have. It was love at first sight with Cedric (Cedric means little soldier). I had to feed him every two hours day and night for three weeks before he finally began to look like he might survive. His entire life has been a wonder. He has even survived snakebite.

When I brought him home two weeks ago from ICU it looked as though he might not survive again, after being diagnosed with chronic kidneyenal failure (CRF) and badly dehydrated, vomiting and had diahrea. He is on subcutaneous fluids twice each week. I did much research on the web immediately. Your website has been most informative. I read that dandelion was good for him, also peppermint: both of which I grow and use for myself, so I made a medium strong infusion of this. It was cooled and to it I added a small amount of raw apple cider vinegar and three drops of liguid stevia. I keep about 1 cup of this in the refrigerator to add to his regimen daily. He gets 1/2 teaspoon of this each morning and evening. Here is the recipe for his supplemental mixture.This is given by dropper and he really does not seem to mind taking it.

1/8 t. (150 mg.) calcium carbonate
100 mg. taurine (free form)
3 drops agaricus mushroom extract (1/4 ml)
6 drops bladderwrack (1/2 ml)
1/2 t. Miracle II neutralizer liguid

This is all mixed together daily and given by dropper two times each day. One time each day I add 100 mg of salmon oil and a small sprinkle from a capsule of Solaray Super Digestaway for enzyme activity. He loves spirulina so I sprinkle a small amount of this on his food.

By the end of his first week home our Vet could not believe the difference in him. He has gained back about one or more pounds of his weight and they had told me he would not gain any back and that I should simply make him as comfortable as possible. His fur is fluffy again, he has not vomited even once, and his diahrea is practically gone. He is regaining some of his feistyness. I am very hopefull now

Dog with advanced Hodgkins disease

Name: Kat
Email: katy.van @ att.net
Location: West Palm Beach, Florida

My 7 year old black lab mix, Katy, was recently diagnosed with advanced Hodgkins. When my vet felt her lymph nodes, he went ashen and his voice trembled when he gave me the news. I have always given her the very best food I could find - avoiding 4D (dead, dying, diseased, disabled). The lymph nodes in her neck (5 or 6 lumps) and on the back of her rear legs were the size of grapes. The vet recommended an oncologist and said a series of shots would be anywhere from $80 to $150 each and even then there were no guarantees since this process is soooooo hard on living things.

Since I have ALWAYS persued alternative therapies, I decided to "see" you first. I found the information regarding Dr. Johanna Budwig and immediately put Katy on the cottage cheese/flax diet along with an all natural RAW diet (raw meat and vegetables every day, raw natural eggs {with the shell 2-3X/week}, and fresh clean bones once or twice a week). In addition, I chose to add two liquid herbs that det! ox her liver.

She has been on this program for three weeks and I am truly amazed. The swollen lymph nodes are all but back to normal (you can just barely feel a swelling, but only if you really probe). The only "side effect" of this program is that since she is absorbing most of the food she eats, her stool is very small. Actually, the stool has looked and felt strange (yes, I probe her stool to see what's coming out), but I credit that to the detox.

I passed this diet on to a 78 year old friend with advanced cancer. Three weeks ago she was unbelievably yellow and slept most of the day. As of today, she is returning to her normal coloring and actually has energy. While she was in hospice for two weeks, she kept bugging the staff to make sure that we brought her the required "shake" of cottage cheese, flax, and fresh fruit. Another friend is circulating the program like wildfire to all of our friends.

Contact ShirleyI hope my comments will encourage others to look into this program before they lose a friend (4-legged or otherwise) to this horrible disease called cancer. Although Katy is not completely out of the woods, her remarkable improvement in just three short weeks has me very excited to continue this for the rest of her life.

P.S. Admitting that her yearly scheduled vaccinations are probably a contributing factor to getting cancer in the first place, my vet VOLUNTARILY offered me a letter to submit to the county so that Katy never has to get shots again.

Hot spots
Date: Fri, 10 Jul 1998
From: Diane Trembath animadevon@eclipse.co.uk

I just read your announcement in Homeopathy Online. My chocolate Lab, Sidney, was diagnosed with a hot spot (on top of his head) by our orthodox vet and prescribed an anti-biotic/corticosteroid ointment. Needless to say, the hot spot got worse - and larger. A week later I took Sidney to see our homoeopathic vet and he was given Phosphorus 200 and and Ayurvedic gel (called Phytogel, made from Himalayan cedar and for veterinary use only) to use topically. Within 24 hours there was a marked improvement; there bleeding and oozing stopped completely within 48 hours and now, a week later, he's back to normal with signs of hair regrowth! Diane Trembath.

Dog on raw food
From: Stephen Sharp

In feeding raw foods I have noticed that with my oldest Saluki (almost 6 years) she began acting much more playful and happier. She started looking for toys to play with, having not showed much interest in years. Her coat is more plush. I am curious to see how she will be when she is in season as previously she went off all kibble (light bulb!!!) and would only eat cooked chicken and beef. The younger one (2years) is calmer and also has a beautiful, glistening coat. I feed organic beef (ground) with organic veggies. I give organic dog biscuits (bought) or cookies that I make myself on occasion.

Arthritic Dog

Karen Saunders

Grain-Free Healthy Dry Kibble Dog & Cat Food I began being concerned with a dog I had that at 6 was severely crippled with arthritis. I switched his diet to Life's Abundance and raw foods along with antioxidants and SOD, and low and behold he was fine!! He lived an extra 2 1/2 years that he would not have had otherwise. Since then I have gone completely to home made foods, raw foods, and the difference is remarkable. I am now raising my first litter on raw foods and try to get new owners to try it. Some do and some think it is too much work which really it isn't!!

Contact ShirleyNow that I have made this switch, I am extremely concerned about vaccines. I just recently gave any dog over 2 just parvo and rabies vaccines. Under 2 they got booster shots. I have been looking for nosodes and don't know where I can get them from.

Nutritional help for pets

I have a Cat who is now 19 years old. Three months ago I started giving my cat an enzyme product. I started taking this product for myself but i had heard of the famous 900 cat study involving cooked and raw food and what it did to the cats. I was watching my cat closely for results. She had a lumpy chest ( I don't know what she had there, it could have been just fat tissue or tumors) she also had a lumpy stomach from a previous operation and her fur was looking like it does when the cat is sick not very silky or smooth but sticky and matted.

Two days after giving her the enzymes (about half a capsule with each meal sprinkled on it) her lumpy chest disappeared and her lumpy stomach as well and her fur was back to it's beautiful shine, she goes now to her litter box and when she comes out she is not looking "spooked" and running around and crying. She has noticed that we're doing something good for her and eats with an appetite that she never had before I'm sure she has a lot of the degenerative illnesses that cats get but i don't know which ones because iIm afraid to take her to the vet since he would only give her drugs that harm worse.

Healthier Bird
Connie Penner

I have part of my own personal experience with our cockatiel that taught me a lesson. Our bird, Star, was laying eggs too frequently and getting worn out. We took her to a vet who claimed he knew what he was doing and I believed him! He gave her a birdie birth control shot! She became miserable! She gained almost twice her weight and became very depressed. She was so heavy that she could not fly!! So I put her on bird seed from a health food store which does not contain any additives. She ate from our fresh organic salads as she chose. And I insisted to my husband that she only be given distilled water--not tap!

She rested a lot and ate. She lost her weight on her own accord. She started flying and was a happy bird again. And she looked a lot younger! Now she is more healthy and is not having so many problems with laying eggs too often! Her cycle seems well adjusted. Hmh. Humans need these same health rules! I learned something from my bird.
