During Christmas break 2019, I was fortunate to go to Hawaii and get to spend time with my new first grandchild, Ellie Rose Auerhahn. While visiting three of Hawaii’s islands, I was able to lecture, learn and see a past patient.
On Kauai, I was a guest on Ihor Basko’s radio program Pets and People in Paradise. During his radio show out of Princeville, we discussed the new book called The Clean Pet Revolution by Dr. Ernie Ward, Alice Owen and Ryan Bethencourt. This well written book looks at the climate change cost of meat based diets for pets. The millions of animals killed each year to put into animal feed is both inhumane and creating and exacerbating climate change issues. Many of the products we feed our pets now are so tainted with GMO glyphosate and other herbicides and pesticides. Meat is not clean even if it is free range. Please read this book. As we see the terrible fires in Australia, fires in California, and the sea levels rising in Venice we can no longer keep saying dogs are carnivores. They are omnivores and can be plant based with supplementation. On the close horizon are the fabricated meats (that can be grown like beer or Kombucha in huge stainless steel tanks with all organic clean ingredients). Then there are tissue culture meats where a small piece of tissue is removed from a live animal and grown like building blocks of that form of meat, again from organic and pesticide free ingredients. Those of you who have not tasted the burgers and sausages from Beyond Meat will be really surprised how wonderful they are. They are pea protein based. They are already in Dunkin Donuts and will now also be at McDonalds. Another brand, The Impossible Burger (which is soy based) is doing really well at Burger King. Try all these for the planet’s sake and for the love of animals.
Prolozone treatment for a 120 lb. Rottweiler:
It was next on to Maui where I was able to check up on Neely, a 120 lb. male Rottweiler who I had cared for as a young dog. Neely was diagnosed with bilateral cruciates, and another veterinarian recommended that he get surgery on one and then the other costing over $10,000. In April 2012, 8 years ago when he was 3 years old we did Prolozone on both knees. The owners did their own physical therapy by buying an infinity pool. They also had him treated by a chiropractor and added nutritional support, homeopathy and began feeding a raw and organic diet. Here is video of him at almost 11+ years living, now in Maui for the past 5 years. He never had the surgery.
Later that day, we had a chance to watch the last Patriot game with Charles Laquidara (the former DJ from WBCN in Boston) who has been living in Wailea for 20 years. We watched Tom Brady, the most famous plant based athlete, play his last game of the season. The day was enjoyable – except for the game!
Then it was on to Oahu to learn more about the Bemer and Zyto machines with Dr. Polly Yamamoto. We have the Bemer at MASH and it allows the circulation to flow better. You can watch the link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XKuj9mV8tU
Dr. Yamamoto does the Zyto Rife diagnosing and I am hoping to bring it to MASH.
