Good morning to you all. I am up rather early today as I am adjusting to the East Coast/West Coast time difference… it is 4 hours apart.

As I write this email it is VERY dark outside and NOBODY is up yet.

I was asked by one of my wife’s relatives exactly what is the MOST IMPORTANT supplement to give to Humans (US) and Pets?

Did I have to think long?


My Answer…

OMEGA 3 Fatty Acids.

These will increase your overall health and energy level.

They will help prevent heart disease, cancer, depression and Alzheimer’s.

They will treat rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, allergies and arthritis.

There are two types of fat, omega-3 and omega-6 – both essential for health.

Commercial dog and cat food diets have excessive Omega 6 fatty acids- as they contain the cheaper vegetable oils corn, canola and the like.

And the average person has far too many omega-6 fats in their diet while consuming very low levels of omega-3.

The best ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats is 1:1.

The ratio in dog and cat food, and most human diets is sadly similar.

The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 averages from 20:1 to 50:1!

This is a BAD sign- we are putting our dogs, cats and ourselves at SERIOUS health risks because of our poor eating and feeding habits.

The main sources of omega-6 are canola, soy, corn, and sunflower oil.

Omega-3,is found in Flax, flaxseed oil, walnut oil, evening primrose oil and fish.

The 2 BEST sources of Omega 3 are:

Ground Flax, and Fish Oil.

And the 2 key components of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, DHA and EPA are found in their highest concentration in Fish.

These two fatty acids are the most important in preventing heart disease, cancer, allergies and arthritis.

AND of note to the Humans reading this article…The brain is also highly dependent on DHA – low DHA levels have been linked to depression, schizophrenia, memory loss, and a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

So what should you do?

1. Get both you and your pet on EFA’s. I am now using both Ground Flax and Fish Oil for both my family and Lewis… Cleo my cat just gets the oil.

2. Decrease the intake of harmful vegetable oils- in both you and your pets.

3. Start making some more diets at home for your pets that include fish… then eat it yourself as well.

4. Learn about ALL of the variety of ways that you can prevent disease while keeping you and your pet healthy…

I suggest that you take a long hard look at my course at:


A week or so ago I asked for success stories and many of you responded.

Here is one very encouraging one!

“I found your Ebook “Veterinary Secrets Revealed” online last year. I got your email minicourse first and, though I already knew some of the remedies, I only knew a few.

Due to several health problems of my own, I take a number of medications.

I’m usually very careful but once in awhile a pill drops on the floor and then I’m off on a mad journeys to find it. I finally called in a sighted person to help but the pill was simply not to be found. Then I had a moment of panic. The pill was a diabetes med which I knew, if he’d ingested it, would play havoc with his blood sugar and could lead to serious consequences.

But since I knew from your course and Ebook how to induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide, I gave him a spoonful as instructed and waited 15 minutes with him outside. (Thank goodness it was a beautiful day so waiting was no discomfort for either of us. After he had not vomited, I gave another round of the hp and it started. Being a fairly anxious person and since, after all, this dog was my eyes, I got him to the vet as quickly as possible.

The vet, who I knew to be open-minded though not very knowledgeable about alternative remedies, told me he was impressed at how well I handled things.

He did some tests and kept my dog overnight and I’m not sure exactly what else he did but my guide dog was great the next day.

Now I recommend your book to everyone I come into contact with at the rescue agency for which I volunteer (I process applications, do adoption interviews and owner surrenders, take my turn on the hotline etc. It is gratifying to know that if a caller calls about a health concern I can suggest alternative remedies to use either until they get to their vets or sometimes so they won’t have to go at all.

My dream is to get all of this vital information into the hands of the people who adopt our dogs as well as other pet adoptees and I would love to have all of the guide dog schools and organizations give these materials to every student.

I wish I’d had this information a few years ago when my then guide was diagnosed with cancer, given unsuccessful surgery (twice) and even then they didn’t get it all.) Maybe I could have done something to help the cancer go away or maybe I could have prevented it in the first place. My last guide had terrible allergies. I had him tested and, fora while, did the allergy shot thing.

After a year and a half, I stopped the shots. They just weren’t working.

I felt so bad for him with the constant itching and scratching no matter what shampoo he was bathed with and then they found out he had a food allergy.

So I switched him to a premium lamb and rice formula. The food I was using was not on the recall list so I was grateful for that. I am considering cooking for the dog myself when my next one arrives.

Thank you again for your most practical and useful book and for all the time I knew you had to put in to writing it and your course.

Best wishes,

M.B. Texas, U.S.A.”

Thank You M.B. for taking the time to write and share your success.


P.S. If you’d like to send me a Success Story, Question, or Comment, follow these guidelines:

1) Keep it short and to the point. Two paragraphs max.

2) Tell me what’s working for you before you ask your question. I appreciate all of the “Your stuff is great” and “I don’t need to tell you how well your stuff works” comments, but the fact is that I DO need to hear all of the specifics… because this helps other Pet owner’s to see what’s working in different situations.

3) If you have a Success Story, write “Success Story” in the subject line of the email. I read these first.

4) At the end of the email, give me your initials and tell me where you’re from.

5) Send it to me at:



It’s Your Pet. Heal Them At Home!
