Against the Odds, Given up for Dead: The Life Saving Work of Dr. Al Plechner, DVM
By David Spangenburg & Dr. Al Plechner, DVM
Did you know that a simple hormonal imbalance endangers the lives of all our pets? This imbalance triggers an immune system breakdown leaving our pets helplessly exposed to deadly disorders and catastrophic diseases. Veterinarian, Dr. Al Plechner discovered this imbalance and created a simple, lifesaving, treatment that has been proven successful time and time again. The Plechner Protocol has restored the health of over 200,000 dogs, cats, horses and even people who were “given up for dead”. This book tells his story. Written from the heart, it illustrates his passion for healing, highlights fascinating episodes from his life and, for the first time, allows his people to tell their own dramatic, true accounts of life, death, courage and commitment. As an added bonus, it also contains the Healthfully Yours Handbook, a comprehensive collection of thoughtful, therapeutic information and pet health tips concerning food allergies, environmental dangers, catastrophic diseases, safe breeding practices, diet, and nutrition; it is an entertaining and engaging, proactive guide for Whole Animal Health. “…a crisis in health and survival has developed that envelopes not just Dobermans but many breeds of dogs and cats. As the results of improper breeding become more and more evident in the growing incidence of disease, the work of dedicated people like Al Plechner becomes all that more important…not content to merely treat the symptoms of diseases. He looks for their causes. What Plechner practices, I believe, is the cutting edge of veterinary medicine…Al Plechner’s innovative research into food, allergies and hormonal relationships has had a big impact…” - William Shatner; actor, director, writer and cultural Icon
Fifty Years of Healing: Dr. Plechner's perspective on a half century of curing animals many had given up on
By Alfred Plechner, DVM
Large numbers of pets die or become sick before their time despite the best efforts of veterinarians. I believe that much of this has to do with hormonal imbalances that deregulate the immune system of animals, undermining their natural protection against illness and thus robbing them of good health and normal longevity.
Many "end of the line animals" have been referred to me during my clinical practice. Their owners had been told that euthanasia was the only humane option left for their beloved pets. In some very advanced cases, those with permanent, irreversible damage having been caused, this has been true; but in a vast majority of situations there is hope for restoring these animals to good health because now there is a solution.
Many years ago as a young practitioner, I tried to figure out why so many patients were getting sick and not responding to standard treatments. My clinical work led me to a major hormone base immune system disturbance that begins in the adrenal glands and goes on to create a ripple effect throughout the body's physiology. The conditions I was successfully treating were ranging from common allergies to reproductive failure to catastrophic autoimmune diseases and cancer. Through my clinical work over the years identifying and correcting this endocrine system based problem, I have developed a successful diagnostic and treatment protocol that has helped thousands of patients not only in my own clinic but also in many other veterinary clinics throughout the world.
Endocrine-Immune Mechanisms in Animals and Human Health Implications
By Alfred Plechner, DVM
"Endocrine-Immune Mechanisms in Animals and Human Health Implications", looks at the relationship of the hormone regulation of the immune system. His collection of articles and writings that have appeared in numerous publications explains the relationship between the endocrine and immune systems. He explains to readers how this endocrine-immune imbalance can be the cause of allergies, auto-immunity and cancer in animals and how these imbalances also apply to humans. By explaining this delicate imbalance, Plechner seeks to help his fellow health care professionals to identify the causes of certain diseases as opposed to only treating the effects of these diseases which cause specific clinical signs and symptoms. He states that there may be a reason to believe that his treatment in animals can be successful for treatment in humans also.
"Over the years, I have discovered new ways to diagnose and treat the cause of many diseases and illnesses that cripple the quality of life for a patient," Plechner says. "It all stems from a hormone imbalance that leads to the disruption of the immune system". Written for fellow practitioners, biomedical researchers and pet owners, Dr. Plechner believes that readers will end this book with a new perspective on many illnesses like allergy, auto-immunity and cancer that occur in animals and in people. He hopes his research will inspire health care professionals to delve further into medical research in regards to not only treating the medical effects in animals and humans, but at the same time, identify the cause of the disease. "My hope," says the author, "is that my research will help animals and people live a better life free from disease."
Pets at Risk: From Allergies to Cancer, Remedies for an Unsuspected Epidemic
By Alfred J. Plechner, DVM with Martin Zucker
The Breakthrough Endocrine-Immune Balance Program
Veterinarian Al Plechner has identified an unrecognized endocrine-immune disturbance as a major cause of multiple disorders in dogs and cats. These disorders include allergies, epilepsy, viral diseases, inflammatory bowel, autoimmunity, cancer and more. In Pets at Risk the authors explain Dr. Plechner’s break-through clinical discoveries and his program for successfully treating a wide range of health problems. He has successfully treated tens of thousands of cats and dogs with this progam.
This informative book describes an unsuspected root cause of multiple diseases and symptoms and lays out the practical steps that pet owners and their veterinarians can take to correct this problem. An excellent resource for pet owners whose animal companions have chronic health problems or for pet owners interested in preventative health care.
