Paralyzed dog recoverd use of hind legs (back): "I must say before I received the transfer factors I was really anxious and I would afraid that my Ridgeback dog, Linkin, would give up. As soon as the package arrived from England I started giving Linkin 2 tablets a day for the first 3 weeks. He has improved in leaps and bounds and it is hard to believe that some 4 weeks ago he could not walk by himself and could hardly move around at all. I had to carry his hind legs with a towel around his waist otherwise he just could not get around. After two weeks on TF+, he started trying to get up onto his hind legs. It was difficult and heart breaking to see him struggle but he was trying. After four weeks on TF+, he managed to walk around even though he lost his balance and he hind legs would give way. He is now walking and running around, although still a little wobbly, and he also tries to jump but does not always succeed. It is absolutely fantastic to see the improvement from week to week." Antoinette Kean, South Africa.

Dogs, Distemper, and transfer factors , By Dr. Baruch Rosen, M.D. (back): As a physician of nearly thirty years, I was well aware that no antibiotic would protect against the ravages of viral disease, particularly canine distemper which shows similarities to HIV. My seven month old white haired Shepard was adopted from a local shelter and was initially joyful and healthy. Within three weeks he developed coarse bronchitis with heavy mucus drainage of the nose and eyes. Our well intentioned vet believed the problem to be kennel cough and started antibiotics. Over the next ten days Romeo failed to improve, but instead experienced seven hard and long grand mall seizures in one weekend, a partial paralysis of the hind quarters which made him fall flat when attempting to walk and a "spaced-out gaze" of non-recognition. Blood studies confirmed distemper and showed a white cell count (lymphocytes) of only 264 slightly more than ten percent of normal. Our vet plus a second out-of-state consulting vet, an expert in distemper were very sympathetic and advised me to prepare myself to euthanize Romeo. The heartache was compounded when Chico, my thirteen month old Chihuahua developed similar symptoms of hard coughing and heavy mucus drainage from the eyes. Reviewing his shot record, I learned he was mistakenly given only one distemper immunization, leaving him inadequately protected; and by licking Romeo's mucus and drinking from his water dish had contracted the infection.

Knowing little to nothing about canine distemper, I turned to the internet and luckily stumbled on to transfer factors , a preparation which enhances and stimulates the body's own immune system to fight against all pathogens, viral or otherwise. My thirty years in medicine told me this was the only solution. I hurriedly became a distributor to get the product and started Chico and Romeo on one cap daily encased in one teaspoonful of raw hamburger. Over the next two weeks all cough and mucus drainage ceased. Romeo's follow-up blood count had risen to normal range at 2217 and he surprised to whole family by jumping a five foot wall. He romps and plays all day long with Chico, now responds normally to his name and appears to be his old joyful self again.

Having witnessed the recoveries of Chico and Romeo, and after further study, all family members are taking transfer factors , one cap daily; our insurance policy to protect against a faltering immune system, the inevitable consequence of aging and exposure to environmental pollution and toxins. As for my distributorship status, I fully intend to spread the word to all my colleagues and good friends. Dr. Baruch Rosen, M.D.

Dog's recover from Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia (AIHA) (back): My dog Arnie had been given up on by the vet. He had acute anaemia, a disease characterized by increased destruction of red blood cells (erythrocytes) by the dog's own immune system, and quite honestly we were making arrangements for his funeral. After one week on transfer factors we noticed a dramatic improvement. Three months later, after finishing the entire course, Arnie is doing so well that he no longer needs transfer factors . He now has so much energy on his new diet (James welbeloved) that we have to restrict his intake or we could be pulling him off the ceiling. He is putting on weight steadily as is his partner Heidi, She has been on transfer factors also and it has cured her scaly flaky skin condition on her back. Dave Burrows in Eastbourne, United Kingdom.

Infected Anal Glands and Bleeding Nose Scab (back): My German Shepherd 9 y.o desexed female, Jeska, was suffering from recurring anal gland infections (blood, pus etc.). I did not want her to have to go through having them surgically removed. She suffers terribly when she has anaesthetics and I want to avoid that. She is fed raw chicken necks, wings, beef marrowbones, chicken mince, rabbit mince, raw minced vegetables, raw egg yolks, flaxseed oil, yogurt, raw linseed powder with ground nuts, cooked brown rice. After taking transfer factors for a couple of months, the vet checked her anal glands and the infection was gone. After all the months of agonising as to whether I should take the advice from the vet. to have her anal glands removed, I am just so relieved and grateful that her anal glands are healthy again. Also, ever since I brought Jeska home from the dog rescue kennels, at the approximate age of 10 months, her nose has been a huge concern as the pigment had crusted and peeled and her nose would also bleed very easily in the raw areas. It has been a constant battle to try to prevent her nose from drying out and crusting by applying products like Vitamin E etc., bu only with only moderate success. Since giving Jeska the transfer factors , her nose has regained all the black pigment and is now looking healthy and smooth. Marlene Hunter from Australia.

Dog Cured of Red Mange (back): "I have a French Bulldog Puppy that at about 5 mos. old developed "red mange". I have never heard of it before and I took her to my vet for hair loss around her face and neck. He did a scraping and sure enough, it was mange. He told me that in Bulldog breeds, it is quite common to see an immature immune system. This type of mange is caused by a microscopic parasite that invades the hair follicles and causes the hair loss. Most other breeds with stronger immune systems can just fight it off. My vet told me the way to rid my puppy of this was to use a special dip once a week for four weeks. I said OK, sell me this dip and I will apply it. He said no way. That it is VERY toxic and I couldn't handle it without special clothing and gloves. I thought this was the only way to treat this problem.I agreed to bring my puppy back the next day and have her first treatment. 

When I came back to pick her up, I was just sick. My puppy's eyes were blood red and she was just lethargic. I knew right then and there I was not going to bring her back for anymore treatments. I began to research all that I could about how to treat this horrible mange, and that is where I came across the information on transfer factors . I ordered a bottle of the transfer factors , and began giving it to her right away. Within about ten days I saw her hair was growing back. Within three weeks she was beautiful. I have people stop me and comment about how pretty she is and how nice and shiny her coat looks. 

Mange - Many normal dogs carry the mange parasite. Holistic veterinarians believe that it becomes a problem and spreads through the skin when there are immune problems, inherited skin defects or illness for other reasons. Holistic treatments aim to improve the general health, particularly the immune system, and to homeopathically treat the inherited factors.

Dr. Falconer's comment on mange and the immune system (back): "Demodectic mange mites are common flora in man and animals. Reread that if you think this is a typo, because it’s a fact: we all have demodectic mites as residents on our skin. Why aren’t we all itchy and broken out with eruptions? Only one reason: the immune system keeps these parasites in check.

So, when a dog is diagnosed with demodectic mange, and he’s got crusty patches around his face or toes or all over, what that means, first and foremost, is that his immune system needs help! Unfortunately, the common treatment is to dip the affected dogs in very toxic chemicals to kill the mites. So toxic, in fact, that the personnel dipping the dog wear rubber gloves and aprons! This has never made sense to me, as we know poisons have a clearly detrimental effect on the immune system. Wouldn’t it make more sense to strengthen the immune system and thereby get the normal flora of mites back in control? It can be done, and transfer factors would be the best course, along with Canine Complete. For the average 40 - 60 lb dog, I’d start with Animal Stress Pack at recommended doses for two weeks. Then, follow this with Canine Complete at label doses and add the transfer factors at two capsules twice a day. To discourage mites topically, paint on lavender essential oil, diluted 1:10 with almond oil. This can be applied twice a day. Be sure to avoid the eyes, however. You’ll need to give this regimen time, from at least a few weeks to a few months. And, again, don’t short change nutrition, avoid vaccines, and work with your homeopathic veterinarian to improve health and cure the underlying illness that allowed the immune system to get so sluggish."

Eileen J. Poole, Animal Care Specialist and Feline Consultant specializing in the care of FeLV+, FIV+ and chronically ill cats (back): The Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency viruses cause the immune system in the cat to become severely compromised. In many cases, it doesn't function well enough to prevent or overcome illness and disease. I have been looking for something that I can give sick FeLV+ cats to enhance their immune systems and improve their chances of maintaining good health and fighting illness. In my search, I found the transfer factors products. I believe that these products, which are a new and completely different approach to enhancing the immune system, will be effective and beneficial to the health and recovery of any sick cat, not just a sick positive cat, and will help maintain immune system efficiency in chronically ill cats."

Feline Leukemia (back): "My cat was diagnosed with Feline Leukemia and the vet considered euthanasia. - Nefret was about 8 weeks old when I found her. I was going to work and looked over into my neighbors driveway and saw what I thought was a baby rabbit...all ears. The animal got up and started to wobble down the driveway and I realized it was a kitten. I went over to investigate and found a VERY sick kitten. I took her into the house and gave my daughter instructions on how to care for her until I got home. I made a vet appt. for that afternoon. The vet examined her. She was severely dehydrated, malnourished, had a major case of hookworms, diarrhea, and a severe respiratory infection. She also tested positive for feline leukemia. The vet suggested, at that point, to consider euthanasia. We didn't opt for that and were sent home with an antibiotic and a kitten kit.

Nefret was on the antibiotic for 10 days and was still snotty and sneezing. We were given a second course of the same antibiotic. About 5 days into the second course, I came home to find her fairly unresponsive and very warm. I immediately called the vet and was given the euthanasia option again and was told this was fairly typical of cats testing positive for feline leukemia. I asked for a stronger antibiotic instead, said a prayer and went on the net to do some research on alternatives to traditional treatment for this disease. I read about the transfer factors . I ordered and had the transfer factors overnighted. Nefret received a dose with her morning food and again in the evening. Her response was amazing. Within two days she was acting like a normal, wild and wonderful kitten. She is a little over six months old now. She was spayed about 5 weeks ago and had a full blood work-up done at that time. Her blood work came back absolutely normal. The vet was amazed and couldn't believe that this was the same kitten. She continues to receive her supplement just with her morning food and I will continue that for her lifetime. I now have a bundle of pure energy and joy in my life". Libby McCourt, Winchester, Virginia.

Ddiabetes, Dr. Sam Jones, DVM (back): Two cats, both about 8 years old, had severe diabetes. It was impossible to get the insulin requirements adjusted. They had lost weight to a point that they were skin and bones. Both cats had no quality of life left. After one week of being on transfer factors , we were able to get their insulin requirements adjusted. It is now six months later and they have both regained their weight, and have a great quality of life and health.

Feline squamous cell tumor in remission (back): A year and a half ago, my cat was diagnosed with a squamous cell tumor. The doctor told me that given the location of this tumor and the aggressive nature of it, there really was nothing I could do. He told me to bring her back for weekly steroid shots and keep her comfortable until she died, which he said would most likely be within a month. She did nothing but lay around. She wouldn't eat, wouldn't play, wouldn't respond to affection. I did as he said, for one week.

And then I decided I wasn't going to accept "there's nothing you can do" as an answer. I got on the internet. I googled furiously. What I found, was your site, and transfer factors .

I started her out on two transfer factors Plus capsules a day, and within a week, she was back to her normal energy level. Within a month, she'd stopped clawing at her face. After three months, I went down to one pill a day, and that's where we are now, a year and a half later. She won't be fooled by putting the contents in her food, so I've used her fastidious nature against her: I mix the TF with a pinch of butter and put the mixture on her paws. She hates it, and licks it off immediately. She's learned to live with this daily ritual for the most part, but she still gets this "Oh mom, not AGAIN" look on her face. She's responded so wonderfully. It's like she's a kitten again, playing with her yarn and rubbing against my face. I look at her every day and am simply amazed, that the veterinian was going to be content with steroids until the poor thing finally died. I recommended the transfer factors to my neighbor, whose 11 year old dog was diagnosed with bone cancer and given less than three months to live. That was a year ago - the dog is doing fine! Bethany in Texas.

Feline Nasal Tumor (back): "My cat Bodger, who is now16, has been taking the transfer factors s Advanced Plus. Now, nearly 18 months later I've taken him back to the vet practice for a check up. He still has some discharge from the right side, but no blood and is generally in good health. I saw a different vet this time and he told me there was no way my cat had a nasal tumor of the type diagnosed back in August 2004, because if he had, he'd be dead due to the agressive nature of these type of tumor! He reckons he has sinusitus, due to the previous nasal damage as a kitten, which I always knew he had, but definitely NO TUMOR! So, what can I say but a fantastic result. You are very welcome to include this on your website if it will help others to help their pets. Incidentaly, the vet took all the information on transfer factors s and was really interested having seen Bodger today." Judith Sexton.

Feline with kidney (renal) failure: Full Recovery (back): "My beloved cat Tawny 16 years old was diagnosed with kidney (renal) failure and there wasn't much the vet was offering to do but to put my cat on a very low protein diet. Tawny didn't want to eat it. He had lost a lot a weight when he got sick. Within 9 mo's he had gone from 8 lbs. to 6 lbs. I could see his bones in his back. I had given him that tainted cat food unknowingly. I didn't know which way to turn because I just knew I was losing him. Just by luck I happened upon shirleyswellnesscafe and decided this is the route I would try for him. I knew I had to do something because he wasn't eating but very little. I ordered the transfer factors and was assured that this could help him. The price is reasonable for someone living on a fixed income. The order came so fast that I could hardly believe the order was already here. My cat is very hard to give medicine to. I put it in a small amount of beef broth , mixed it and put it in a syringe and he just sits there and doesn't seem to mind. I was about 3 or 4 days into the medicine, (they say it takes from 5 days to a week to see an improvement) and I thought he was going to die that night, he was still eating very little with me running out and trying to daily find anything he would eat. The next day he started to eat some by himself but still with a lot of coaxing all through the day. As the days went by he would eat a little more until he was eating totally on his own. He's never been a big eater so it will take awhile to really see a weight gain but I notice the bones on his back don't show anymore. It is now 19 days down the line and for the first time today he came in to eat with us the food we eat and he ate voraciously. I don't believe I'm going to lose him now as I had thought I would but were it to happen I would feel I made the right choice and did the best I could for him. As we all know there is so much fraud out there and it seems you can't trust anyone anymore because the bottom line is money. I really feel that ShirleysWellness Cafe truly cares about people and pets, something that is so rare to find anymore. Tawny has only been on this near 3 weeks and I'm not stressed anymore about something happening to him. If you have any doubts in your mind about trying transfer factors products, you'll find it's the best choice you will have ever made. I just wish I had known about transfer factors before my sons beautiful cat just wasted away and died with no concern from the vet except money." Gloria, Idaho Falls, Id.

Ringworm, Dr.Sam Jones, DVM (back): "A four month old kitten had a severe skin condition that was diagnosed as ringworm. After four months of conventional therapy, the resistant ringworm infection was not resolved. We put the kitten on transfer factors and within 5 days there were no apparent ringworm lesions remaining. Within a few weeks all the hair had grown back - and the now 9 month old cat has a beautiful, glossy coat. The ringworm lesions have not returned."

Poodle with Degenerative Disk Disease (back): My poodle, Sydney, was experiencing excruciating and continuous neck and back pain which the Veterinarian diagnosed as Degenerative Disk Disease. Consequently, the Vet prescribed an anti-inflammatory (steroids) and pain medication. Knowing that steroids have very bad side effects and were nota cure, I searched for an alternative to "modern" medicine. (danger of steroids)

I discovered transfer factors which I hoped would at least help Sydney's auto-immune problem. Once I received my first shipment of transfer factors products I began to safely wean Sydney off the steroids. Within 4 days of taking the transfer factors , minimal steroids and NO pain medication, Sydney appeared to experience no discomfort and ease of mobility. I have continued administering Factor Advanced Formula with no steroids or pain medication. During his first week on this "new" treatment", he ran and played like a puppy without pain. Today, he continues to be very mobile, frisky, and seemingly pain free.

My wife and I believe that his disease is due to excessive in-breeding and more importantly over vaccination. We have since ceased his Veterinarian prescribed heart worm medication, provided an alternative heart worm therapy (Parasite Dr.), and continued administering transfer factors .

Noticing Sydney's success, I began taking transfer factors for my psoriasis. Whether my auto-immune system was compromised as a child with vaccinations, I do not know. However, I do know that the evidence of psoriasis has greatly diminished. I now plan to increase my dosage. I believe, transfer factors products accompanied with a healthy lifestyle has changed my dog's and my health. Houston Ham.

Puppies pneamonia, e-coli and staph (back): "A little over 2 years ago I bought a 4 year old Cocker Spaniel, she has had only 1 live puppy out of 3 litters. After taking one of the puppies to the vet for an autopsy we found out her puppies were born with pneamonia, loaded with e-coli and staph (mom's uterus was infected). Her puppies would be born alive and normal weight but start to die over the first 48 hours. To back up a bit... we put her on clavamox from the vet for 10 days after the 2nd litter. She then had her 3rd litter, which is when we did the autopsy, and put her on clavamox for 2 weeks. On this last heat cycle we tried it again, my vet said she was such a nice Cocker she didn't see any reasoning to spay her and discontinue trying to breed her (this was our last attempt at breeding her, if no healthy babies we were going to spay her). Two weeks before her delivery date we put her on transfer factors 1 pill a day, we will keep her on transfer factors until the puppies are 2 weeks of age. She has 3 strong and healthy babies, all are doing well.  Momma is healthier than ever and also doing very well. I am just THRILLED!" Michelle M.

Bleeding (back): One cat was so weak he could not move from his cage even to pee and would not eat or drink, weighed very little, was bleeding from the ears and nose and wheezed when he breathed and had leukemia. His blood pressure and cell count was so low that the vet said to euthanize him, that his brain was bleeding and he would be dead by morning. They gave him fluids but she said he was too far gone. I gave him a Bio-energetic session and the transfer factors s Emergency packet that night as well as Tranfer Factors Advanced Plus. The next morning he was not dead. In fact, he was up and out of his cage and eating and drinking. The bleeding from his ears turned out to be a terrible case of ear mites - he was not bleeding from his brain. He made remarkable improvement and in two months with weekly sessions and continued use of the transfer factors s was a healthy cat. The people have continued to keep him on the transfer factors s since he has leukemia. Although they haven't had him tested recently and he may not even show positive for it anymore. Sharen Martinson, Iowa.

The Cats are Talking... About Chronic Disease, by Will Falconer, DVM, Certified Veterinary Homeopath. (back)

Note: This article not meant to be a "feline" article per se. At first glance, it may seem to be that, but it's in fact more of an exposure of modern medicine, veterinary as well as human.

Having watched animals and their illnesses for the last twenty-odd years of practice, I am seeing a disturbing trend. Have you noticed it, too? When illness strikes our pets, it is long term, chronic, and difficult to cure. The best that conventional medicine seems able to do is to (barely or briefly) control symptoms, but these poor creatures never get back to a normal, enthusiastic level of health. We've all seen these animals: they are allergic to something and itch a lot; they have thyroid problems and lose their hair or their body weight (depending on whether they have too little or too much thyroid function); they have stiffness and pain in their joints; or their teeth get filthy regularly, and they don't stay clean with our best efforts at dental hygiene. Why is this becoming so common? When I look at it carefully, it's apparent that we are not raising healthy pets. Oh, we try, we follow the veterinary line that says we should vaccinate every one every year, we should feed only one kind of food from a bag or can, we should brush teeth regularly, control fleas with the latest chemicals, but where is this getting us and our four-footed companions? The cats are telling a story about this that I want to share with you.

Back twenty some years ago, dogs were the most popular pet in America. Cats were less popular, and, therefore, had less likelihood of being brought to the vet. As the years went on, more people lived in smaller spaces, led busier lives, and had less time to care for a dog, but wanted that special companionship that a pet can bring, so cats grew in popularity, until, by the mid-80's, they overtook dogs in numbers owned per capita. And where did the conscientious pet owners get their advice on raising the healthiest cats they could? From their local veterinarian, of course. What was the definition of giving the best care? Vaccinating annually, feeding Science Diet, brushing teeth, treating for fleas, etc. Just like it had been for years before with the canine population.

Interestingly enough, the diseases that are quite common in cats now were virtually unknown in the late 70's when I was in veterinary school. We had two donated diabetic beagle siblings who lived in the hospital and taught us about this strange disease. It was something we never saw in cats, and it was pretty uncommon in dogs for that matter. We learned of hypothyroidism from several canine cases, but cats didn't have thyroid problems, and hyperthyroidism was not in the books or the exam rooms. We saw horrible dogs allergies*, with crusts and scabs and red feet and unending itchiness, but we didn't see cats with this disease, either.

Well, if you've been observant in recent years, you know that these chronic diseases are fairly commonplace now in the feline population. As are heartworm (again, a dog disease originally), asthma, kidney failure, inflammatory bowel disease, dental calculus and decay, heart disease, and cancer. Why? Could it be that the cat is now following the same road that the dog has gone down? I think so, and what's more, I think we need to redefine what is the best way to raise a healthy animal.

More veterinary care in the usual preventative way has backfired, and I think we are actually causing these chronic diseases to become more prevalent. While prevention is still most important, it's not best done by annual vaccines, toxic food, and topical flea poisons that warn us not to get them on our skin.

And guess what? Wild cats like the lynx and bobcat are not experiencing these chronic degenerative diseases. Wolves don't die of heartworm disease or have dirty teeth. And nobody is dropping them heartworm pills monthly nor brushing their teeth. Might we do better to follow their example (fresh, healthy food, no/minimal vaccines, no toxic chemicals)? I think we will all be happier and see less disease in all species when we do. I know this approach works. Experience has borne it out in daily practice on hundreds of animals. Question the norm! Don't raise an average animal in the common way. The cats are talking. Are you listening?
