Hi everyone! I dont know if anyone can remember my story, so in short: Ben was diagnosed with FIV a month ago, and the vet sent us home to die - saying there are no effective treatments for cats with FIV who are sick (Ben had toxoplasmosis at the time). We started Ben on Interferon and a whole cluster of supplements, but he continued to go down-hill. His main issue was anemia. Then my vet did some research, and called to tell me about a treatment with a thing called a Zapper that has shown some promising results in people who have HIV. He tried it on 20 puppies who all had parvo, and out of the 20, 19 survived - he has never been able to pull so many puppies through parvo, usually its 19 who die and 1 that makes it. He wanted to start Ben on the Zapper treatments. Now I'm not the kind of person who easily believes in things that have no scientific base or evidence to prove/disprove treatments. I've researched this Zapper for hours, and have not been able to find any, what I would in my opinion, call 'reliable' facts about this. Lots of websites singing its praises, lost of them saying its not worth the plastic its made of, and no scientific studies to date about it. Ben started the treatments two and a half weeks ago, and since then he has gone from strength to strength. He is no longer on any medications apart from his supplements, and he is a glowing picture of health. The vet is as astonished by his recovery as I am. We are going to run a full blood panel on him in January 2010. My vet said in his experience he has NEVER had a vertically infected kitten who got seriously ill, like with toxoplasmosis, live to be older than 6 months. Ben has just passed the 6 month mark. I can only give my story and hope that it might work for anyone else out there as well as it worked for me. At least google it to make up your mind - its called a Zapper, and it was invented by a lady called Hulda Clarke. It involves holding two copper probes under the cats' front legs for 10 min on/10 min off sessions of 3 cycles. The theory - running a fequency higher than an organisms' own frequency through it, will kill the organism, in other words small organisms like germs and virusses will be killed by it. All I can say is that since we've been Zapping Ben, he hasn't had any more health problems.
