Why Using a Complete Holistic Protocol for Your Dog’s Cushing’s Disease is Vital
Our objective is to help you safely decrease the effects of your dog’s body producing too many glucocorticoid hormones. This is done through a wholesome diet, supplements and herbs that help strengthen and support the hypothalamus, pituitary/adrenal glands, and the liver.
Following our recommendations helps to reduce the severity of the symptoms associated with Cushings.
If benign tumors are present around the adrenals and/or pituitary glands, curing Cushings Disease can be unreachable. However, following a protocol of a healthy wholesome diet (outside of kibble), the right supplements including this one, and daily exercise, your Cushing’s dog can have the quality of life he needs to be happy and comfortable on a daily basis.
Ingredients: An ORGANIC herbal blend including Eleuthero Root (Eleutherococcus senticosus), Holy Basil Leaf (Ocimum sanctum), Ashwagandha Root
(Withania somnifera), Astragalus Root (Astragalus membranaceous), Rhodiola Root (Rhodiola rosea), Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex agnus-castus) and Burdock Root
Other Ingredients Include: Organic vegetable glycerin and distilled water. Alcohol free!
Dosage: 1ml 2-3 times daily directly in the mouth. Place your finger inside your dog’s lower lip, closest to the cheek area, and then place the liquid between the cheek and teeth (don’t tilt the head and drop into the throat). Try to feed between meals. Once your dog starts to show improvement, move to giving the Adrenal Calm every day for 5 days with 2 days off. No need to refrigerate as long as you use it within several weeks. For longer storage, refrigerate.
Dosage Guide example for a dog weighing 45 pounds: Give 2ml 2-3 times daily. Once you start to see improvement, then back off to giving the Adrenal Calm 5 days on and 2 days off. 1.25ml is equal to a little less than 1/4 tsp. You will need 3/4 teaspoon or 3.75ml total daily until he’s regulated (again 5 days on, 2 days off). The sizes come in 1oz, 2oz & 4oz. 1ounce will last roughly 8 days. So, to last a month, I recommend getting the 4oz bottle which will last roughly 32 days.
