Autoimmune disorders, lupus, Sjogrens, MS, IBS, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, leukemia / cancer, and many autoimmune diseases, may have a bacterial or fungal related etiology. Ask the so-called medical specialists. Some seem to have all the answers. But this I do know, - when my 14 year old dog, Missy was diagnosed, by 2 vets, with chronic liver failure, leukemia, and many tumors over her outer body, and she had a specific liver enzyme count of over 2,000,- that what I gave her, helped her get much better. Both vets (now 3) gave her, at the best, 2 days, to 2 weeks to live. The first vet did the exam and blodd tests 16 months ago, Jan, 2003. The 3rd doctor examined Missy in April, 2005, and just could not explain what or how she was staying alive. She has lost 15 lbs, and her stomache (liver, spleen, and pancreas are so swollen), but still very active, eating, and no apparent pain! jw
Now, May, 2005, - she has very little trace of outer tumors visible, she is up running pretty well, and all the neighbors are in shock over her positive energy and health change. What did we do different? As a traditional naturopath, herbalist, and self taught - Whole-Life Extensionist, I simply gave Missy, what I would suggest to any of my other dog friends in a similar situation.
First see a qualified medical doctor. Which we did,- her 2 vets. They could do little to nothing, but volunteer to put her down. So I gave her my special formula, I call "ReFidolize". Sort of named after her. Ha! Not really funny, but whatever, the vets asked me for the concoctions recipe. I, of course, just gave the basic ingredients: 3 mushroom and beta-glucan mixed supplements; olive leaf extract; pau d'arco; milk thistle plus; oregano; mixed brocolli and carrot powder, flaxseed oil (omegas), ester C; brewers yeast; multi minerals / aminos; lipoic acid; shark cartilage; green tea; and a proprietary blend of 14 other all natural organic herbs and food supplements.- And my special blend of Medicinal Mushrooms.
I am commenting here on the "Nutrition and the Immune System" articles, the 'mushroom supplements', because they are one of the important ingredients of this special formula, which I believe, helped her innate immune system to partially heal or balance her self, and or to help control the parasite or possible cause of the dis-eases. All we know is that seeing is believing.
We are also working on our own 'rnai' mushroom related process and product, which is in experimental, R/D trials, by applying the mushrooms own immune chemical creating immune defenses,- to be introduced into dogs, to kill specific parasites, just as if the culprit was attacking the mushroom itself.
Hey, who knows, with funding, our new product 'ReFidolize' could be ready for market by later this year.
In closing, follow a healthy natural lifestyle, eat live foods, exercise, and don't sweat the small stuff. Anyone for a vegi - mushroom pizza? And please remember,- "gorillas-dont-cook".
