 Re: My Dog is Allergic to Everything, Please Help!

Hey Trigger's Mom!

You might consider a holistic vet - this one is in Ashland: 541-482-6636; this one is in Jacksonville: 541- 702-2288; there are other holistic vets in OR but they are in another zip code. While it is possible the holistic vet may also recommend steroids, they likely will have a greater understanding of how nettles will apply.

Because your boy is allergic to pines and the like, herbal Thuja occidentalis may be better indicated over nettles.

It does sound like your boy has a systemic yeast infection; this would be something to as a prospective vet, their experience with healing vaccine damaged /yeast overgrowth animals.

Consider Ted's Borax Protocol for pets for the systemic yeast; also consider Ted's Mange Remedy or Ted's Anti-fungal/Anti-staph dipping solution to provide some relief for the itchy skin.

Yucca, Tumeric and Quercetin may help with the inflamation; colostrum may help build the immune system - find these at your local health food store. The dose recommended on the bottle is likely sufficient. For the dried nettle leaf you might just mix in 1-2 tablespoons per meal into wet food if you wish to continue that route. Alkalizing, by either adding raw apple cider vinegar to the water or baking soda may also provide relief.

If this were my dog I would use Ted's Borax protocol along with the mange remedy to start, and would also do the colostrum and quercetin. The oral supplements take time to work, while the borax in the water and the mange dip tend to act rather quickly.

Please report back!

 Re: One Week Old Kitten in Severe Pain from Constipation

Hey Linda!

Did I read this right - your kitten is ONE WEEK old?

A week old baby cannot move their bowels on their own. Turn on the tap in the bathroom sink and run until it is lukewarm, and then rinse your kitten's rear under the warm water; this will stimulate the bowels and your kitten will pee and poop. You could also use a cotton ball dipped in warm water, but in my experience it is more effective to run their bottoms under a warm tap and hold them there until they are empty.

 Dog May Have Auto-Immune Problem or Candida

Hey Max!

NOT Bill but my comments as follows:

There JRT breed is predisposed for many eye issues and blindness: Progressive retinal degeneration ( PRD ) /also known as progressive retinal atrophy ( PRA ). The eyes of these dogs may appear normal until they are in the later stages of the disease.

Your veterinary ophthalmologist should be able to determine the cause of your dog's blindness - it certainly is curious that he saw nothing amiss, unless the disease in the eye is not in the later stages.

Dog May Have Auto-Immune Problem or Candida

Hi Bill and all contributors, great work guys, love your work. Bill you're a champion. Can I ask a question labour our little jack Russell, at 7 years old he event blind. We went to specialis vet and were told that the eyes work fine and that there is probably no tumour in the brain. The specialist said that the problem was at the receptors but he could not see what the problem was. He said that this sometimes happens, which to me is professional speak for, sorry we have no idea!

I have been reading through this blog with great interest re various matters in particular beating candida. It occurred to me that perhaps the dog has a candida infection. He apparently has an auto immune issue, possibly lupus. In any case I suspect a treatment by turps would not hurt. The dog is a monstrous eater so I suspect something is robbing his nutrients, hence the excessive hunger.

Reading I see bovine colostrum would be good also for improving the immune system. I am guessing that first the turps treatment for a number of weeks followed by colostrum at the end of main turps treatment.

I'd be interested to hear anyone's comments on this, particularly yours Bill. cheers

 Re: Has Anyone Used Baking Soda for Tumors in Cats

Mo --- please consider, cancer is in the blood. By excising a tumor, the cancer will turn up again. This said, yes, turmeric mixed with coconut oil and baking soda will help but the whole body has to be cleansed and the immune system raised.

Get ESSIAC tea with all the roots and Four Herb. That is the genuine mix. I used Essiac West online. Follow the instructions exactly. More is not better. Go to Essiac in the section in EC and see the testimonies. Why allopathy thinks just cutting out the tumor is best is evident in their low range of success - 3%. The tea will also prevent pain. Read the instructions.

Namaste, Om

Has Anyone Used Baking Soda for Tumors in Cats

Sun, 22 Mar 15 17:19:30 -0500

My little 11 yr old kitty just got diagnosed with feline fibrosarcoma from the 3yr rabbies shot she got last year in her upper thigh and torso which is now where the tumor/tumors are. They did a blood sample and found cells that look like cancer. Because of the location of the shot/tumor; even if they operate the are; they cannot get all the cancer without taking part of the torso; which is not possible . So why do that and put her in all that pain. Without surgery and radiation/chemo she has 10 -24 months. with surgery she will have a recurrence of cancer in 79 days, and with radiation; it doesnt help since they cannot remove all the cancer operating. I am devastated and she is my family.

I need to know if anyone out there has applied baking soda to their cats and how?? I am giving her 1 capsule per day with 1 capsule of noni diluted with water. I have just begun the regiment and know for a fact that the NONI truly helps fight cancer.

Is it dangerous to give to my little 8 lb 11 yr old feline??? PLEASE HELP US CURE BUFFY

Triggersmom ---

I have been reading up on the cause of allergies and it is the liver that is overwhelmed that has to be dealt with. For this I would use milk thistle tincture as with people but perhaps in a syringe. This can be done daily for about two months and following up twice a week.

I use nettle tea about twice a year for myself and I can assure you, it is hard to over do. You could soak dog kibbles in the tea and the kidneys will be thankful. This to be done for just a few weeks. It takes about 6 weeks according to the books to rejuvenate the kidneys. I usually get the dried leaves from the health store. Be generous and put a good hand full into more than a liter of water. I am not scientific with these things but that works well with me.

I would put baking soda into the drinking water, just a pinch in a liter of pure water, not distilled.

Another suggestion similar to nettle tea is dandelion tea. My garden has more than enough and every spring I pick the new young plants, root and flower and even before flowering, and my cats slurp it. In this case I often give grain free kibbles soaked in that rich tea, full of natural vits and they, cats and dogs, love it. The benefits are manifold.

If he eats lots of dirt it means he is depleted of minerals. As well as the possibility of parasites. I give a good spoon full of Diatomaceous Earth, human grade, almost every day. Over time the parasites disappear and the coat becomes shiny, teeth look white.

Most important I consider the addition of organic blackstrap molasses. A tablespoon dissolved in very warm water, say two tablespoons, poured over the food. I enjoy seeing how they like this. The coat takes on a rich colour. This treats anaemia, arthritis and mineral deficiencies.

And do not forget coconut oil, a good tablespoon full. This can be alternated with hemp seed oil which is super balanced. And there is apple cider vinegar ...

Hoping you will both be doing well. Namaste, Om

What is the Best Treatment for Cat's Solid Sarcoma Tumor?

Sun, 22 Mar 15 07:17:58 -0500
Posted by Kylie9 (Bristol, UK) on 03/22/2015

Please can you tell me whether Tumeric and coconut oil is useful for the treatment of solid sarcomas Tumours. I have been reading the other posts and it seems that it is good for treating cysts and fatty tumours but I'm not sure whether it would have any effect on solid tumours. My cat has a large tumour around her bottom and it is spreading up into her pelvis. The vet said they can operate to remove the tumour but they might not get all of it because it is in a very difficult position. She had a CT scan which showed a lot of fatty tissue around the advancing tumour which I'm hoping is protecting her from the cancer speading to her muscle and other tissues. I've read about the benefits of Tumeric treatment but worry as it seems to be good at reducing fatty tumours that I may cause my cat harm if I treat her with this causing a reduction in the fat cells around her tumour thus enabling the spread to her other tissues. Is there any other treatment that is recommended for solid sarcoma tumours? Many Thanks for you help.

One Week Old Kitten in Severe Pain from Constipation

I have a 1 week old kitten. He is really having a hard time with bowel movements. He cannot go at all for the last day and a half. He hasn't had a soft bowel movement at all, they have all been hard. I gave him a little karo syrup, it didn't help. Do you have any ideas, poor thing is screaming in pain. He did not get the first mother's milk.

My Dog is Allergic to Everything, Please Help!

Posted by Triggersmom (Ashland, Oregon) on 03/21/2015

Hi, thank you for any help you can provide. I have a Malamute/Rottweiler/Husky (possibly Choc Lab as well) mix - he was 140 lbs - now he is down to 120+/-. We live in the Pacific Northwest - tree country ... He is allergic to Pine trees, Cotton Wood trees, a couple of other kind of trees - he is allergic to 4 or 5 types of grasses, Soy, Corn, Dairy, Eggs, house dust, Lamb, Duck, Rice, blah blah blah ... the list goes on, and on.

I have tried the expensive shots, and $1.50 a day for allergy pills from the vet (company who makes it can't keep up with demand, so none is available + extremely expensive), 300 milligrams of a *name brand* allergy medicine a day for years at a time (he may be immune by now). He uses $40/bottle shampoo to sooth his skin, however, as for itching and chewing his bones, etc - but we have hit a brick wall with relief of any kind. Lately he has even begun moaning at times because he is just miserable, I feel so bad for him.

He doesn't have fleas - so that is not the issue, but does have some dry skin. He also eats dirt - A LOT of dirt, we buy him top of the line dog food (*name brand*Bison and Sweet Potato) from the approved list according to the allergy testing place.

**We have a fantastic vet who truly cares about my dog and my other animals, however he is not sure what to tell me about using Nettles - and suggested I try posting to see if anyone else may have ideas**

I heard of Stinging Nettles, so I bought the little bottle ($13.00 - 4 days or so worth) and doused his raw meat with it (may have overdosed him on it even, due to not knowing the proper dose for him - I just used the dose (from the bottle, 59 drops). It seemed to help some, so I figured there had to be a more cost effective way of doing it. Dried Nettle leaf/powder is much more affordable - but the dose is hard to figure out. I made tea out of it and put the mushy leaves in his meat - and he loved it. I don't know if this is the best way to give it to him because I don't know how much to give him. I was going to put the dried into capsules and give it to him that way, but he is WAY TOO smart and eats around it and spits the pill out when he thinks I am not looking (eyes in the back of my head helps).

Anyway, does anyone know how to go about figuring out a dose of Nettles OR have another natural and affordable fix ?? Again, thank you to everyone kind enough to reply to this long post.

Thank you to the people who run this site - it is amazing, with tons of information on SO many topics - well done!!
