Feline Leukemia Natural Treatment
One refrigerate September evening, a bunch of boys were walking through Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on their system to their friend’s house.
With approximately a scarcely more than half a mile to go, they noticed a kitten had picked up on their frame and was slowly lagging behind, but they didn’t believe much about it.
Later that sundown when the boys exited their friend’s home they adage a kitten lying on the basis and walked over to inspect it.
The One boy’s Mother came to the scene and provided some sustenance and humidify after noting the kitten’s uncommonly depleted condition.
It was entirely unpunctual and she didn’t understand what to do.
She had an older horsewhip and would not carry this sick kitten into their home so it was left outside.
The next morning the kitten inactive lay where it had been left.
More victuals with a hardly antibiotic meant for individuals was offered.
(Note: administering prescribed antibiotics meant for nation can kill an animal and should not be done.
On my arrival to visit with my partner second that afternoon, I was told about this kitten and how it could not trudge and lay dying in the grass.
We walked over to it, and there in the grass lay some breathing bones covered with fur.
It was a remarkably sad sight – I twisted down to greet the scarcely one and stroked the best of its head with my fingertips while mentally sending a infrequently hymn up there for him/her.
It was absolutely striking this kitten was intensely ill.
In addendum to being starved, it also had a remarkably spoiled cold and was wheezing, sneezing and coughing.
Its eyes and nose were caked with dried mucous – one eye was absolutely closed shut with the other barely open.
As we were motile back towards my friend’s quarters we were discussing what should or could be done.
I fast caught my friend’s drift but in my humour there was completely no procedure I would even consider bringing this critter home with me, and was quickly talking myself out of even entertaining this possibility.
My person was not the only one with an older cat; I besides had one of 15 plus years and would not jeopardize his health.
As I was relaying this reality I heard: “Oh my God Karen, it’s walking.
” I overripe my head to see this rarely tiny object coming towards us and remember logical “uh-oh.
” My partner slowed her pace but I did not, and actually believe mine quickened.
This kitten seemed to be on a mission! My person had knack down to say to him/her but s/he kept on trotting and seemed to be coming amend for my heels.
My individual commented that she could not surmise how this kitten was latching onto me when she had been the one that had fed and given it water.
I laughed and said: “Nice try but that expedient won’t work.
” Even though I sensed what was up, I was so hoping this was not the case! I opted to try a hardly test, and went out of my routine to walk around my vehicle.
Sure enough, this crying rarely body followed me.
It was a thumping uncompromising creature no question and even tried to arise me into the house.
I had not empitic my partner in fairly some circumstance and we had some catching up to do but this kitten was becoming the major topic.
My comrade is an wise woman but tried to claim she was not sure what she should or could do.
In my character this was not rocket science and one something was certain – the kitten clearly essential shelter.
I further knew what my companion was up to and was not buying into any of it – there were several options and none had to include me.
Her mansion was much larger than my insignificant bounce house, and every room had a door.
Therefore, my finest overture was to manage the kitten in and isolate it in one of the many inoperative quarters so that it could be cared for.
When this failed, I then recommended calling a vet or an animal salvation service, which finally bygone this discussion.
As it overripe out, the kitten had its keep device that came as no nonplus to me and is exactly what my seldom car appraisal had been all about.
Shortly after dusk, I was ready to leader home and discovered the kitten waiting below my vehicle.
As soon as it heard my voice it sprung into action.
I stood looking down at this infrequently crying adolescent who stood looking up at me.
I could almost hear it begging “please move me with you.
” Needless to say, the kitten left with me, and it was a good body too.
Some remarkably strong weather with flooding moved in modern that evening, and this infrequently one would not retain survived had it been left appearance for another night.
On the drive home, I was weighing the options.
Due to the unpunctual hour, it was a given this kitten would be spending at least one night with me, but not in my derisory house.
There were no doors and there was no room that could be used for isolation.
Therefore, the kitten would stay in another building located on the property and we would see what the following day brought, as I was not certain s/he would even make it through the night.
I made a juicy bed with towels and a blanket, rotten the heat up, provided water, some fare with a scarcely Colloidal Silver (natural antibiotic), and tucked the kitten in.
The succeeding morning I walked over to the studio and was not sure what I would find.
As it bad out, this seldom one was torpid extraordinary much alive.
“She” was very decrepit but further seemed a bite stronger too.
I sat with her and began to natter to her about her condition.
I told her that I would do what I could to backing her.
I came back to my abode and prepared her breakfast with fresh colloidal silver added.
As she was eating, I heard coughing and then maxim mucous begin to drizzle from her eyes and nose.
She was in trouble, and I was in over my head, and took her to a local animal hospital immediately.
Fluids for dehydration were administered correct away and then mixed tests were performed.
About 3 ½ hours and $350.
00 hindmost the impression were in.
The kitten was between 3-4 months old, weighed right around 3 pounds, had mange, worms, expressive pneumonia, herpes, an eye infection, and feline leukemia (FeLV) on finest of it all.
Bottom string – she was given a few days at most to live.
My nucleus sunk on hearing this news.
I stood looking down at this rarely one who was staring off into space.
I began to imagine about the symbol of vigour she had expended.
She could barely see but willed herself to march a hardly other than half a mile and then collapsed on the basis and did not stratagem again until I showed up overdue the successive afternoon.
It halfway seemed like she was conserving what infrequently firmness was left for my arrival and then she seemed to beg me to bring her with me.
I honestly did not gain that an animal would fight that fatiguing or parade that reach if it was not going to live.
I decided to bestow her a chance, and try everything I could to aegis her repossess her health.
The vet gave me the pamphlet with a few bottles of medication and wished me luck.
On the way home, I spoke with the kitten about her condition and told her that I would do my thumping peak but ultimately it was all up to her.
Aside from the leukemia, the further conditions would be fairly attainable to boost but this little one was already keenly depleted and the vet’s test had not offered much hope.
The first entity to come through was to bestow her a strong spell that would serve to aid her.
‘Fairmount’ was the abbreviation for ‘Fair Mountain’.
Mountains are strong and rugged and this scarcely one definitely could use some fairness.
Additionally, Fairmount Park is where she had lived, and it seemed as if this Fair Mountain had given her the strength to make one latter march so our paths would cross.
The interval fit and was purloin for her to carry.
Once we were home, Fairmount was taken to her room and I hit the computer to begin researching.
I didn’t know much about the FeLV leukemia virus but sage the lofty factor with the illness is that it causes forceful “immunosuppression” – a weakened unsusceptible system.
This data markedly indicated supporting and strengthening the resistant system was crucial.
This meant all general drugs including vaccines should be avoided because this would only cause the denial engender and other reduce the resistant system.
There were many articles relating to the further traditional pet care therapies but not much in the routine of regular treatments.
However, I did find one body concerning the benefits of pureed liver and how cats with the FeLV virus craved the enzymes.
This item was a irradiate bulb moment.
Several years earlier, I had maintained a meagre method as a medicinal cook for a few with various health conditions and well knew the medicinal value of food.
Additionally, I moreover knew of a lady that once had leukemia who was given approximately 6 months to live 25 plus years ago.
Therefore, I marked to start all of Fairmount’s symptoms aggressively with victuals and herbs, along with some gusto healing.
All of which would retain to be scaled down proportionate to her size/weight.
The subsequent is the elite phase of Fairmount’s all normal treatment.
The photograph above reflects approximately one month of care.
In appendix to constantly asking the sacred realms and Fairmount for help, I relied heavily on trusting my intuition (what came through me in the procedure of thought/feeling) when it came to how to proceed, what to pasturage and how much to administer on any given day.
It is eminent to dispatch that even though I surmise organic full foods are the first routine to go and all of my animals have been subjected to my beliefs, I own always used the cardinal standard maid fare I could distinguish as a base.
Another factor for consideration is meat byproducts of any cordial along with added preservatives are not interest for antiseptic animals and definitely should not be given to an animal that is ill.
Therefore, my animals were fed meal made by Pet Guard, which is USDA validated organic.

Fairmount was given a few days to break and welfare some firmness before she was given her first bath with some of my own personal organic shampoo.
Thereafter, she underwent 4 further baths for 4 days in a train with one gallon of boiled lemon wet added to treat the mange.
The bathtub was filled with fair enough soak to cope her feet and no more than half of her legs.
After the initial 4 baths, she received daily lemon bedew sponge baths in my compass until the eruption and itching was below control (approximately 10 days).
Sulphur 30 C- for skin, mange, and herpes.
10-14 day treatment.
3-4 pellets 3 times per day for approximately 5 days.

Sulphur 6x (animal strength) – 3 pellets 1 juncture per day.
Administered as a defence for approximately 6 supplementary days once mange was subservient control.
She received daily healing sessions 2x per day – best body in the morning and last phenomenon at night.
The initial sessions lasted as want as they did for an adult.
This was not the benchmark because animals usually pressure much less remedial energy.
However, Fairmount was at death’s door so I was alert to business for as wanting as the delectation continued to travel through me.
Approximately one week after our remedial work began and during one restorative session, her thing began to totter uncontrollably.
I idea for sure she was dying in my orbit and began to pray.
Within a few minutes, she began sneezing and I became thumping concerned.
I placed her on the pave to caress her.
After the sneezing - she stretched, walked over to her victuals and began to eat.
I continued to observe.
After she whole eating I asked, “Are you OK?” She walked over to receive some stroking and then went and curled up on her bed.
I sat words to her for a while before leaving for the night.
I did not moor well, as the curative session played out over and over in my mind.
After tossing and turning for a few hours, I bundled up and walked over to the studio to test on her – she was dormant alive.
The successive morning and much to my surprise, she was at the door waiting for me and seemed to hold a pile supplementary energy.
During our curing session, I noticed the wheezing heard and felt in her chest was greatly reduced.
I began to spot the nervous she had bygone through the night before was remarkably twin to what some of my human clients go through when we attain into deep unshackle work.
“The corrective shivers” is the period I use, and this must have been what Fairmount went through.
The session the night before had been our turning fleck and the ambulatory pneumonia’s squeeze had been broken.
At this point, I felt much other confidant and knew we were on the road to recovery.
After about 6 weeks of treatment, the last of my 3 animal companions of 15 plus years suddenly became ill.
My lash Asher had been diagnosed with a heart condition around age 3 that was supposed to lower his life, but he had outlived them all.
He was an amazing scarcely heart who captured the hearts of everyone that ever met him.
I completely adored him and now he was dying.
He wanted and demanded my undivided emphasis for 4 consecutive days – even monitored my phone point and would yell whenever someone called to hire me know when their point was up.
My visits with Fairmount were moreover mark thumping succinct – I pretty much delivered her snack and left.
After Asher’s death, I did not want to be around any animals but could not completely ignore Fairmount.
While sackcloth my loss, it began to materialize to me that Asher might own opted to depart so Fairmount could ruse into our home.
It was cold appearance and going back and diffuse to the studio was recipience a toll.
However, I had no plans of keeping this kitten.
My only intention was to help her regain her health and then pinpoint a sake home for her – HA! The impression of one I greatly loved feasibly opting to quit so this new bullwhip could move into his home benign of pissed me off.
I remember thinking “No means in hell is she ever motion in here!” Another HA! – Fairmount moved in 3 days later.
She definitely lifted my spirits with her large identity – it was like she had always been living here and knew the routine.
She fully loved to consign me baths with her sandpaper tongue that molest after about the third pass.
I did my boon to keep myself covered at night but sometimes a foot would pop out from beneath the covers, and it was a given that it would be bathed if she was anywhere impending it.
My head hair was not the repair coil but my eyebrows were, and I leave never forget the top situation she discovered them.
A painful scraping warmth on my eye lid had me orifice my eyes one morning to see her exterior remedy there over mine, which definitely made me jump!
As occasion progressed, she became stronger and I began to incision back on some of the supplements and eliminated others when she stopped eating the pureed liver, which indicated she no longer imperative to be bombarded.
After an approximate age was uncompromising and given her depleted state, I had initially believed she probably would not come into season around the average 6 months of age.
Wrong! Contrary to what I thought and/or wanted, she did not wait.
Her blessing season hit in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve.
I did not spot she was in heat and concept she was in pain as she screamed the accommodation down.
It wasn’t until the later day that I realized she was remarkably fine.
I had furthermore mistakenly believed cats came into season every 6 months so this would be the peak and last case I would keep to go through this.
Wrong again! In January she came into her second season and it was then that I shrewd cats come into season every month.
Needless to say, there be totally no method I would live with several days of monthly screaming sessions until the spring.
Our local vet was contacted the subsequent day.
But he would not spay her without giving her a rabies, and colouring shot.
I tried to magnetism to his mend character and explained the special needs of feline leukemia cats and how giving her these shots could bob a form back or kill her.
He unstated but his rank was firm.
We were locked in a stalemate, and he would not twirl the rules.
Although, he did suggest I results the initial hospital where she had been treated because they had not vital any shots to task with her.
However, this hospital suddenly expressed concern about the possibility of rabies, distemper, or some fresh infectious disease.
Go figure! I reminded them of the truth they didn’t seem to have any problems with the treatment and charging a extraordinary significant numeral of capital when this infectious “stray” was initially brought into their office.
I besides pointed out that contrary to their death sentence, this stray was still thumping much alive, and had not form one foot on the cause outside, or come in impression with any further animals.
All of my thinking attempts fell on deaf ears and they refused to spay her without shooting her up with their drugs first.
The hindmost result had me taking Fairmount to a holistic vet located halfway 2 hours away where she would receive the genial of care she required, but it was not at all cheap.
After the appointment for February was arranged and the approximate emolument given, I hung the phone up and sat in shock.
This infrequently stray kitty was costing other in medical bills than all of my animals and me combined in the last 25 years.
I sour to see Fairmount in the middle of a bath, and informed her that she elite not keep any plans of checking out on that table, and she amend hang around and donate me my investment back!
The morning had come and Fairmount was driven to the vet where she remained for 48 hours.
I was a segment nervous about leaving her but additional so about the procedure.
Coming into season at her common occasion was a sake device and reflected she was healthy.
But waiting to undergo such and invasive routine was definitively my preference.
I was spiritual her method would be supported from administering a mild does of anesthesia to taking an acupuncture session directly after she regained consciousness.
Leaving her was hard.
I found myself remaining in logical communication to assure her I would be returning along with telling her she had to stay strong.
The vet provided constant updates before, during, and after the procedure.
What was becoming striking with each new dub is the vet was falling in emotions with Fairmount, which had me dogma relieved.
When I went to harvest her up, she was as convivial to see me, as I was to see her.
The vet informed me that all lesser conditions had cleared, and she was symptom unshackle but had quiescent tested positive for feline leukemia.
This was welfare report and tackling the leukemia would become the primary focus now.
The latter phase of treatment
In addendum to maintaining the later foods, additional supplements suggested by her vet were included.
Her feeding was reduced to once per day with one to two days of fasting each week.
Fasting gives the procedure a break and stimulates the unsusceptible system.
Fairmount would further see her vet once every 2 weeks for a lair of healing therapy proclaimed as the “JMT Technique,” which she seemed to like extraordinary much.
My manoeuvre was to keep her retested for the leukemia in a few months and compare the legitimate numbers in the blood job to monitor her progress.
Pet Guard – 1/2 can 1 time per day.
Aduki Beans and Juice – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of beans with 1 tablespoon of secretion to aid and strengthen the kidneys/bladder during toxin release.
Short Grain Brown Rice – 2 to 3 tablespoons to stabilize system, and moreover nurse constipation and/or diarrhea.
Fresh Kale- derisory number slightly blanched and finely chopped.
1 serving per day.
Carrots – trifling unit either grated unfinished or cooked and then finely chopped.
If juiced – 1 tablespoon secretion with 1-2 teaspoons of pulp.
1 serving per day.
Fresh Meat – when it comes through to apportion this to her.
2 times per week
Acidophilus Yogurt – 1 tablespoon.
Vitamin Supplements – 1 case per day
Liquid Vitamins with high vitamin “A” content.
Co-Q 10 – 1/3 of 30 mg capsule.
Acetylator – 1/2 capsule.
ProZyme Natural Enzyme -1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per day.
Scan – insignificant pinch added to food.
1 circumstance per day.
Powdered Calcium Ascorbate Vitamin C – 250 mg 2 times per week.
More if needed.
Fairmount made it to her vet for 3 corrective sessions before she changed things with her posses plan.
She developed an abomination to riding in the car and became deeply strained on our fashion to the vet for her fourth session.
I had initially idea she would mellow out as we drove but we were half manner there and she was quiescent screaming.
I epigram no sake in taking her in for a session when naught more than reducing her merit of attention would be accomplished, which would be canceled out on the drive home.
Not to mention, importance is a major trigger for this disease, and I was not alert to risk her health.
I rancid the car around and brought her home.
To this day, I own no gloss whether the leukemia is torpid active, or if it is in remission, or how desire she commit live.
What I do know from my research is that if a kitten with leukemia survives beyond two years then there is a thumping wellbeing ensue they bequeath go on to live a full and desire life.
Fairmount has been with me for almost five years now, and she knows what I dearth and that I am actually expecting to achieve at least twelve years if not more! However, this possibility is totally up to her.
