 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.


His successful 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.
