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. 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 concerning Pet Health; it is an engaging, proactive guide for Whole Animal Health.
Sunday, June 21, 2009 Reflections on "Medical Ice Age?"
After I posted "Medical Ice Age?, on OpEdNews.com I received a number of emails singing the praises of Dr. Alfred Plechner DVM. They were from readers who had visited the page after the two week comment period closed. Being avid Plechner supporters they wanted to comment but, alas, couldn't. Their stories were very moving tales of near tragedy and touched me so deeply I decided to create this addendum to the previous article.

Considering the fact that every animal that Dr. Plechner's treated for cancer has had this endocrine-immune system -imbalance, Could we possibly be able to treat or prevent cancer by identifying and healing this adrenal defect? These are questions that continue to be asked, due to the advanced stages of "status quo" which has so grievously afflicted the corporate medical establishment.
Wednesday, April 29, 2009 Arlen's Specter
Arlen remains as always an "even though". Even though he does bring them closer to the filibuster proof(?!) number of 60. There is no telling where he'll put his voting power. And, with the rise of the new "centrist" caucus, (the infamous ConservaDems) Vegas is currently taking odds on, if Arlen is a blessing or a curse.

This article answers that age old question. What do our dogs do, late at night, while we're sleeping? Or, maybe not.

We never have the time to realize that the high we've been chasing all this time has been chillin'. Just hanging out, waiting for us to slow down to catch up. There is no drug quite like the experience of life. If you want to expand your consciousness just open your senses wide because it is all around you.

US Highway 66 was established on November 11, 1926. She cut diagonally across the middle of the U.S. like an exploratory surgery from Chicago to Santa Monica., 2,448 miles of wide open spaces and sheer American beauty.

Just who are they calling Joe anyway? Do they really think they can take the vast and diverse collection of individuals that make up the mighty middleclass of America and dilute us down to a beer drinking, can crushing, bulls**t spouting jingoist? Ready to sit up and beg for their guidance?
YEAH, THEY DO!

He always said that St Pete was "a good place to come to die". Some say he was cursed when he said that, cursed to haunt the bars in St Pete, much like Davy Jones haunts the seven seas! So on the 39th Annual Celebration of his final road trip, all you barflies all over St Pete stay alert and when the time is right, raise your glasses to the King of Beats! And say...
...here's to you, Jack!
