Endocrine-Immune Mechanisms in Animals and Human Health Implications
By Alfred J. Plechner, DVM

 

Humans suffer from hormonal imbalances, so it makes sense that our pets would also suffer from them... Veterinarian Alfred Plechner has a different spin on the problem than I have with humans, but I believe he's on the right track and is a much-needed pioneering clinician in veterinary medicine.

--John R. Lee, M.D. , "The John R. Lee Medical Letter"
Co-author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause:
The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone

 

During thirty-six years of clinical work, veterinarian Dr. Al Plechner has identified an unrecognized endocrine-immune disturbance as a major cause of multiple disorders in dogs and cats. The condition, which may be either genetic or acquired, results in inhibited cortisol production and is expressed in a wide range of disorders: allergies, epilepsy, viral diseases, inflammatory bowel, autoimmunity, cancer, feline immune deficiency (FIV), and more.

Through extensive testing and long-term patient follow-up, Dr. Plechner has developed a treatment program that includes physiologic - not pharmacologic - hydrocortisone replacement therapy and, where indicated, thyroid to aid in metabolization. The program has proven extremely successful in thousands of cases. Among his FIV patients alone, about 70 percent go on to live long and healthy lives. Most clinicians consider cats suffering from the retrovirus, which is similar to HIV in humans, incurable.

In Endocrine-Immune Mechanisms in Animals and Human Health Implications Dr. Plechner examines the possible correlation between the dysfunction he has identified and successfully treated in animals and a similar condition in humans. He offers his observations for consideration in the hope that they may spark fresh insights into successfully treating patients with cancer, reproductive disorders, autoimmune disorders, and HIV.

About the authors

Alfred J. Plechner, D.V.M., a 1966 graduate of the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, has practiced in West Los Angeles for nearly forty years. California Animal Hospital, where he has been an owner practitioner for thirty-six years, has been ranked among the top 1 percent of animal clinics in the United States.

Early in his career Dr. Plechner developed a special interest in nutrition, allergy, and the relationship of hormone-immune imbalances to disease in dogs, cats, and horses. His research and clinical findings have been published in veterinary and human medical journals as well as popular animal magazines.

His most recent book, Pets at Risk: From Allergies to Cancer, Remedies for an Unsuspected Epidemic (co-author Martin Zucker, Newsage Press 2003), explains extensively his clinical findings and treatment program for correcting imbalances in pets. Carvel Tiekert, D.V.M., founder of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, hails Dr. Plecher's clinical findings and treatment program. "This book presents us with a way of evaluating and treating our animal patients with all kinds of problems related to dysfunctional immune systems. My initial experiences with the protocol have been extremely gratifying."

In Endocrine-Immune Mechanisms in Animals and Human Health Implications Dr. Plechner examines the possible correlation between the dysfunction he has identified and successfully treated in animals and a similar condition in humans. He offers his observations for consideration in the hope that they may spark fresh insights into successfully treating patients with cancer, reproductive disorders, autoimmune disorders, and HIV.

Dr. Plechner has presented his clinical perspectives to physicians at the Broda O. Barnes, M.D. Research Foundation in Connecticut, an organization dedicated to education, research, and training in the field of thyroid and endocrine balance. After learning about Dr. Plechner's findings, one physician, David Brownstein, stated: "His revelations from years of clinical practice have connected the dots between unrecognized hormonal defects and immune system disorder. This information has great therapeutic significance not just for sick animals but for sick humans as well."

John R. Lee, M.D., and author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone, says of Dr. Plechneršs clinical findings, "I believe he's on the right track and is a much-needed pioneering clinician in veterinary medicine." Dr. Plechner can be reached through his website.
