Does Death Have To
Be The Only Answer?
Each and every day,
large numbers of pets become seriously ill and even die before their time
because of hidden hormonal imbalances that deregulate their immune systems,
disable their natural protection against illness, weaken their good health and
shorten their normal life spans. Many of these beloved pets are considered "end
of the line animals" by puzzled Vets who have told their owners that euthanasia
is the only humane option left.
Does death have to
be the only answer?
Please read Bubba's testimonal
as to why death is not the only answer!
What if there was
another way? What if someone developed a simple treatment, successfully proven
time and time again, to save these "end of the line" animals? Allowing them to
live long, healthy, productive lives? What if this simple treatment protocol was
actually available to prevent these catastrophic illnesses and untimely deaths?
During the course
of over 40 years of practice and clinical research, Dr. Alfred Plechner has
discovered a dangerous and extremely lethal syndrome in many of the animals he
has treated. It involves a defect in the middle layer of the adrenal glands.
This defect causes a major immune system imbalance by creating a decrease in the
production of cortisol hormone (stress and infection fighter) while at the same
time causing the currently present cortisol hormones to become inactive. This
‘Plechner Syndrome’ also causes an increase in the production of estrogen which
binds the receptors and limit’s the availability of thyroid hormone, leading to
a dangerously imbalanced immune system.
To combat this
potentially lethal syndrome he has developed the “Plechner Protocol’ which
consists of a ‘hormonal specific’ diagnostic blood test to determine the nature
of the imbalance and a treatment protocol using physiological (low dosage)
injections and/or oral dosing of hormonal replacement supplements to regulate
and maintain the proper balance. Once the endocrine system is back in balance,
the immune system kicks in and all the disease symptoms disappear.
treatment program has helped well over 150,000 dogs, cats, horses and people.
These were patients, not only at his animal hospital, but in healthcare
facilities throughout the world.
The Plechner Protocol has also shown a very
pronounced effect on not only treatment of Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)(
feline equivalent of HIV), but also Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) and
Feline Leukemia (FELV). These cats were all clinically ill and positive for
their specific virus. Cats with FIV and FIP achieve a 70 % recovery, while cats
with FELV have an 85 % recovery if proper hormone therapy has been applied.
The human health care potential of the protocol has also been
proven numerous times.
