Walter, Cinnamon, Sparkle and Creampuff "We've had terrible problems with all our animals (three cats and a dog) peeing and pooping where they aren't supposed to, on our hardwood floors under the table, on chair legs, on beds and in closets, etc. I started giving all four of them the AFA products, especially supplementing with enzymes, probiotics, Super Sprout & Algae and CoQ10 (in addition to Animal Matrix), based on what I had read and heard from our great holistic vets and on the chat list. It has helped tremendously. I started all this AFTER we took them to the vet and they couldn't find anything wrong with them, and couldn't even suggest anything to try! According to the vet, our 10-year-old schnauzer, Walter, was simply experiencing "doggy Alzheimer's" for instance, and had "forgotten" that he was housebroken! The CoQ10 seems to have helped him the most, so maybe he was right. Anyway, it's such a relief and so fantastic to have something that works! To me it is just an "experiment in miniature" on what these products can do for us people too! Certainly made a believer out of my husband, who I have to admit was very skeptical at first, but now he takes the products religiously, and his digestive system is on track as a result."

Diagnosing heart attack in women is not as clear cut as it is with men (crushing chest pain, pain running down the left arm, etc). When I was in cardiac rehab one of the women had nothing more than pain in her left arm. She went to her doctor who told her to take acetaminophen for the pain. The pain persisted and 3 days later her doctor told her to come back in. They gave her an ECG which showed that she had a heart attack. That was the only symptom she had. No shortness of breath, no chest pain, no weakness, no sweating, no vague feeling of being unwell – nothing else. But her age range put her into a potential heart event category. She didn’t smoke, she wasn’t overweight – she was generally in good health. Her doctor was shocked. My doctor was shocked too when she heard that I was in the hospital.
"For years I had been a "junkie"--addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs. used oral and topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroids for 9 years to suppress my eczema/psoriasis. The steroids' side effect nearly killed me and did nothing to cure my eczema. Why elimination or suppression of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease . The side effects caused me to swell-up like a balloon and triggered terrible mood swings from deep depression to nasty outburst our rages. Functioning of vital organs such as my liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen were nearly shut down and I thought I would die." Shirley
