Feline Leukemia Natural Treatment
One chill September evening, a squad of boys were mobile through Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park on their system to their friend’s house.
With approximately a rarely supplementary than half a mile to go, they noticed a kitten had picked up on their trail and was slowly lagging behind, but they didn’t imagine much about it.
Later that dusk when the boys exited their friend’s home they saying a kitten lying on the basis and walked over to scan it.
The One boy’s Mother came to the vista and provided some food and bedew after noting the kitten’s remarkably depleted condition.
It was wholly overdue and she didn’t understand what to do.
She had an older bullwhip and would not carry this sick kitten into their home so it was left outside.
The sequential morning the kitten torpid lay where it had been left.
More nosh with a rarely antibiotic meant for people 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 friend second that afternoon, I was told about this kitten and how it could not march 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 extraordinary gloomy sight – I bowed down to greet the hardly one and stroked the elite of its captain with my fingertips while mentally sending a infrequently psalm up there for him/her.
It was fully striking this kitten was markedly ill.
In addition to being starved, it also had a very bad cold and was wheezing, sneezing and coughing.
Its eyes and nose were caked with dried mucous – one eye was completely closed shut with the other barely open.
As we were motile back towards my friend’s house we were discussing what should or could be done.
I briskly caught my friend’s drift but in my mood there was completely no routine I would even consider bringing this critter home with me, and was rapidly speaking myself out of even entertaining this possibility.
My individual was not the only one with an older cat; I also had one of 15 plus years and would not jeopardize his health.
As I was relaying this gospel I heard: “Oh my God Karen, it’s walking.
” I high my skipper to see this rarely tiny entity coming towards us and remember analytical “uh-oh.
” My comrade slowed her pace but I did not, and actually imagine mine quickened.
This kitten seemed to be on a mission! My partner had facility down to prate to him/her but s/he kept on trotting and seemed to be coming remedy for my heels.
My man 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 plan won’t work.
” Even though I sensed what was up, I was so hoping this was not the case! I opted to try a seldom test, and went out of my system to walk around my vehicle.
Sure enough, this crying little item followed me.
It was a very resolute creature no distrust and even tried to materialize me into the house.
I had not seen my person in wholly some instance and we had some catching up to do but this kitten was becoming the major topic.
My man is an prudent lady but tried to claim she was not sure what she should or could do.
In my attitude this was not rocket science and one something was certain – the kitten clearly obligatory shelter.
I also knew what my man 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 derisory skip house, and every room had a door.
Therefore, my top proposition was to bear the kitten in and isolate it in one of the many idle quarters so that it could be cared for.
When this failed, I then recommended niche a vet or an animal salvation service, which finally gone this discussion.
As it rotten out, the kitten had its posses trick that came as no surprise to me and is exactly what my hardly car evaluation had been all about.
Shortly after dusk, I was ready to captain home and discovered the kitten waiting underneath my vehicle.
As soon as it heard my voice it sprung into action.
I stood looking down at this infrequently crying young who stood looking up at me.
I could midpoint hear it begging “please transact me with you.
” Needless to say, the kitten left with me, and it was a welfare device too.
Some extremely strong weather with flooding moved in second that evening, and this rarely one would not obtain survived had it been left facade for another night.
On the drive home, I was weighing the options.
Due to the tardy hour, it was a given this kitten would be spending at least one night with me, but not in my insignificant 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 subsequent day brought, as I was not certain s/he would even make it through the night.
I made a young bed with towels and a blanket, sour the heat up, provided water, some meal with a scarcely Colloidal Silver (natural antibiotic), and tucked the kitten in.
The sequential morning I walked over to the studio and was not sure what I would find.
As it high out, this scarcely one was torpid uncommonly much alive.
“She” was uncommonly weak but moreover seemed a crumb stronger too.
I sat with her and began to prattle to her about her condition.
I told her that I would do what I could to assistance her.
I came back to my quarters and prepared her breakfast with other colloidal silver added.
As she was eating, I heard coughing and then aphorism mucous begin to rain 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 right away and then assorted tests were performed.
About 3 ½ hours and $350.
00 hindmost the impression were in.
The kitten was between 3-4 months old, weighed correct around 3 pounds, had mange, worms, mobile pneumonia, herpes, an eye infection, and feline leukemia (FeLV) on finest of it all.
Bottom column – she was given a few days at most to live.
My centre sunk on hearing this news.
I stood looking down at this infrequently one who was staring off into space.
I began to reckon about the number of easgerness she had expended.
She could barely see but willed herself to parade a infrequently further than half a mile and then collapsed on the instigation and did not move again until I showed up tardy the sequential afternoon.
It midpoint seemed like she was conserving what rarely tenacity was left for my arrival and then she seemed to beg me to bring her with me.
I honestly did not secure that an animal would fight that tiring or trudge that distance if it was not going to live.
I clear to grant her a chance, and try everything I could to help her recover her health.
The vet gave me the bill with a few bottles of medication and wished me luck.
On the procedure home, I spoke with the kitten about her condition and told her that I would do my very top but ultimately it was all up to her.
Aside from the leukemia, the other conditions would be absolutely practicable to treat but this infrequently one was already painfully depleted and the vet’s check had not offered much hope.
The first body to come through was to grant her a strong term that would serve to assistance her.
‘Fairmount’ was the shortening for ‘Fair Mountain’.
Mountains are strong and rugged and this hardly 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 firmness to make one end parade so our paths would cross.
The expression unite and was embezzle 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 understand much about the FeLV leukemia virus but wise the high factor with the infection is that it causes radical “immunosuppression” – a weakened proof system.
This report distinctly indicated supporting and strengthening the unsusceptible manner was crucial.
This meant all general drugs including vaccines should be avoided because this would only engender the contradiction generate and additional deteriorate the unsusceptible system.
There were many articles relating to the additional traditional private care therapies but not much in the practice of common treatments.
However, I did find one device concerning the benefits of pureed liver and how cats with the FeLV virus craved the enzymes.
This item was a light bulb moment.
Several years earlier, I had maintained a trifling style as a medicinal cook for a few with mixed health conditions and well knew the medicinal value of food.
Additionally, I also knew of a noblewoman that once had leukemia who was given approximately 6 months to live 25 plus years ago.
Therefore, I pronounced to onslaught all of Fairmount’s symptoms aggressively with nosh and herbs, along with some vigour healing.
All of which would hold to be scaled down proportionate to her size/weight.
The successive is the finest phase of Fairmount’s all normal treatment.
The photograph above reflects approximately one month of care.
In appendix to constantly asking the religious realms and Fairmount for help, I relied heavily on trusting my intuition (what came through me in the style of thought/feeling) when it came to how to proceed, what to straw and how much to govern on any given day.
It is famous to missive that even though I suppose organic finished foods are the elite system to go and all of my animals hold been subjected to my beliefs, I obtain always used the paramount superiority pet victuals I could pinpoint as a base.
Another factor for consideration is meat byproducts of any benign along with added preservatives are not advantage for sterile animals and definitely should not be given to an animal that is ill.
Therefore, my animals were fed food made by Pet Guard, which is USDA accredited organic.

Fairmount was given a few days to gap and profit some force before she was given her prime bath with some of my have personal organic shampoo.
Thereafter, she underwent 4 more baths for 4 days in a queue with one gallon of boiled lemon dampen added to nurture the mange.
The bathtub was filled with just enough soak to sunshade her feet and no other than half of her legs.
After the initial 4 baths, she received daily lemon water sponge baths in my circle until the rash and itching was below discipline (approximately 10 days).
Sulphur 30 C- for skin, mange, and herpes.

3-4 pellets 3 times per day for approximately 5 days.

Sulphur 6x (animal strength) – 3 pellets 1 instance per day.
Administered as a safeguard for approximately 6 additional days once itch was unbefitting control.
She received daily restorative sessions 2x per day – prime item in the morning and last phenomenon at night.
The initial sessions lasted as long as they did for an adult.
This was not the gauge because animals usually oblige much less restorative energy.
However, Fairmount was at death’s door so I was receptive to undertaking for as want as the enthusiasm continued to action through me.
Approximately one week after our restorative job began and during one salutary session, her entity began to teeter uncontrollably.
I opinion for sure she was dying in my compass and began to pray.
Within a few minutes, she began sneezing and I became remarkably concerned.
I placed her on the pave to stroke her.
After the sneezing - she stretched, walked over to her victuals and began to eat.
I continued to observe.
After she flawless eating I asked, “Are you OK?” She walked over to receive some stroking and then went and curled up on her bed.
I sat speaking to her for a while before leaving for the night.
I did not dock well, as the remedial 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 appraisal 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 own a collection more energy.
During our remedial session, I noticed the wheezing heard and felt in her chest was greatly reduced.
I began to recognize the trembling she had former through the night before was extremely similar to what some of my human clients go through when we gain into deep unshackle work.
“The healing shivers” is the interval I use, and this must keep been what Fairmount went through.
The session the night before had been our turning atom and the expressive pneumonia’s squeeze had been broken.
At this point, I felt much further 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 bullwhip Asher had been diagnosed with a marrow condition around age 3 that was supposed to lower his life, but he had outlived them all.
He was an amazing scarcely gist who captured the hearts of everyone that ever met him.
I absolutely adored him and now he was dying.
He wanted and demanded my undivided urgency for 4 consecutive days – even monitored my phone situation and would shriek whenever someone called to contract me recognize when their circumstance was up.
My visits with Fairmount were besides dent thumping short – I pretty much delivered her sustenance and left.
After Asher’s death, I did not deprivation to be around any animals but could not quite ignore Fairmount.
While gunny my loss, it began to befall to me that Asher might hold opted to depart so Fairmount could play into our home.
It was cold frontage and going back and emanate to the studio was receiving a toll.
However, I had no plans of keeping this kitten.
My only intention was to offices her redeem her health and then distinguish a profit home for her – HA! The opinion of one I greatly loved feasibly opting to quit so this new lash could machination into his home generous of pissed me off.
I remember mental “No system in hell is she ever locomotion in here!” Another HA! – Fairmount moved in 3 days later.
She definitely lifted my spirits with her big identity – it was like she had always been living here and knew the routine.
She completely loved to bestow me baths with her sandpaper tongue that abuse after about the third pass.
I did my first to obtain myself covered at night but sometimes a foot would pop out from underneath the covers, and it was a given that it would be bathed if she was anywhere looming it.
My captain hair was not the redress length but my eyebrows were, and I commit never forget the first situation she discovered them.
A painful scraping sentiment on my eye lid had me fracture my eyes one morning to see her appearance amend there over mine, which definitely made me jump!
As time progressed, she became stronger and I began to indentation back on some of the supplements and eliminated others when she stopped eating the pureed liver, which indicated she no longer requisite to be bombarded.
After an approximate age was determined and given her depleted state, I had initially believed she probably would not come into season around the regular 6 months of age.
Wrong! Contrary to what I conviction and/or wanted, she did not wait.
Her top season hit in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve.
I did not know she was in heat and concept she was in pain as she screamed the dwelling down.
It wasn’t until the successive day that I realized she was uncommonly fine.
I had further mistakenly believed cats came into season every 6 months so this would be the elite and last time I would posses to go through this.
Wrong again! In January she came into her end season and it was then that I wise cats come into season every month.
Needless to say, there be entirely no way I would live with several days of monthly screaming sessions until the spring.
Our local vet was contacted the successive day.
But he would not spay her without giving her a rabies, and distemper shot.
I tried to enchantment to his improve temperament and explained the special needs of feline leukemia cats and how giving her these shots could cause a thicken back or kill her.
He implied but his stratum was firm.
We were locked in a stalemate, and he would not kink the rules.
Although, he did suggest I effect the initial hospital where she had been treated because they had not obligatory any shots to venture with her.
However, this hospital suddenly expressed concern about the option of rabies, distemper, or some other infectious disease.
Go figure! I reminded them of the fact they didn’t seem to posses any problems with the treatment and charging a uncommonly significant number of fiscal when this infectious “stray” was initially brought into their office.
I further pointed out that contrary to their death sentence, this stray was inert very much alive, and had not crystallize one foot on the cause outside, or come in influence with any fresh animals.
All of my logical attempts fell on deaf ears and they refused to spay her without shooting her up with their drugs first.
The closing result had me receiving Fairmount to a holistic vet located midpoint 2 hours away where she would receive the generous of care she required, but it was not at all cheap.
After the appointment for February was arranged and the approximate payment given, I hung the phone up and sat in shock.
This scarcely stray kitty was costing further in medical bills than all of my animals and me combined in the last 25 years.
I high to see Fairmount in the middle of a bath, and informed her that she elite not hold any plans of checking out on that table, and she revise hang around and bestow me my investment back!
The morning had come and Fairmount was driven to the vet where she remained for 48 hours.
I was a grain agitated about leaving her but supplementary so about the procedure.
Coming into season at her average case was a benefit device and reflected she was healthy.
But waiting to undergo such and invasive procedure was definitively my preference.
I was confident her style would be supported from administering a beer does of anesthesia to getting an acupuncture session directly after she regained consciousness.
Leaving her was hard.
I found myself remaining in thinking missive 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 creed relieved.
When I went to harvest her up, she was as jolly to see me, as I was to see her.
The vet informed me that all lesser conditions had cleared, and she was symptom discharge but had idle tested positive for feline leukemia.
This was sake story and tackling the leukemia would become the primary axle now.
The final phase of treatment
In addition to maintaining the sequential foods, fresh 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 system a desist and stimulates the immune system.
Fairmount would also see her vet once every 2 weeks for a covert of curing therapy declared as the “JMT Technique,” which she seemed to like remarkably much.
My tactic was to have her retested for the leukemia in a few months and compare the actual numbers in the blood assignment to recorder her progress.
Pet Guard – 1/2 can 1 circumstance per day.
Aduki Beans and Juice – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of beans with 1 tablespoon of juice to assistance and strengthen the kidneys/bladder during toxin release.
Short Grain Brown Rice – 2 to 3 tablespoons to stabilize system, and moreover treat constipation and/or diarrhea.
Fresh Kale- small unit slightly blanched and finely chopped.
1 serving per day.
Carrots – trivial number either grated coarse or cooked and then finely chopped.
If juiced – 1 tablespoon sap with 1-2 teaspoons of pulp.
1 serving per day.
Fresh Meat – when it comes through to consign this to her.
2 times per week
Acidophilus Yogurt – 1 tablespoon.
Vitamin Supplements – 1 time per day
Liquid Vitamins with lofty 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 – meagre 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 curative sessions before she changed things with her obtain plan.
She developed an disgust to riding in the car and became acutely taut on our manner to the vet for her fourth session.
I had initially idea she would mellow out as we drove but we were half practice there and she was quiescent screaming.
I saw no advantage in recipience her in for a session when nothingness further than reducing her quality of stress would be accomplished, which would be canceled out on the drive home.
Not to mention, stress is a major trigger for this disease, and I was not willing to gamble her health.
I bad the car around and brought her home.
To this day, I keep no solution whether the leukemia is dormant active, or if it is in remission, or how crave she consign live.
What I do comprehend from my research is that if a kitten with leukemia survives beyond two years then there is a extremely advantage ensue they consign go on to live a finished and inclination life.
Fairmount has been with me for almost five years now, and she knows what I lack and that I am actually expecting to earn at least twelve years if not more! However, this possibility is completely up to her.
