Blackjack’s first Endocrine Immune blood panel revealed high estrogen, elevated cortisol, undetectable thyroid hormone, and depressed immunoglobulins.
Blackjack was started on thyroid supplementation and began a series of steroid injections. He was also placed on krill oil, digestive enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics, nutritional clay, transfer factors, medicinal mushrooms, curcumin, IP-6, and several other nutritional supplements. He was switched from a kibble based diet to a moist, organic food.
Blackjack received acupuncture and laser therapy every 2 weeks and continued Chinese herbs. His acupuncture treatments consisted of points to dispel heat, drain damp, tonify and move Qi and Blood to resolve stagnation, and local points around the eyes to improve vision.
After 3 months, Blackjack’s vision returned! He is now able to go for walks without wearing his “halo”. He can maneuver around the other dog in the house. He can go out the dog door and lay in the grass.
Blackjack is visual and visibly happier!
Special thanks to Blackjack’s owners for following Dr. Plechner’s protocol and not giving up!
Super special thanks to Dr. Al Plechner for his support and guidance!
