Introduction to Cardiff's Blog
Cardiff suffers from Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia — yes, it’s a mouthful. The abbreviation IMHA is so much easier to pronounce. IMHA is a chronic, typically fatal illness where the immune system destroys the body’s red blood cells.
I take an integrative approach to Cardiff’s treatment by using a combination of Western (conventional) and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
The Western approach utilizes immunosuppressive drugs to keep the immune system from being over-reactive. The TCVM technique relies on administering Chinese herbs and other supplements, along with acupuncture and/or acupressure treatment, to augment the health of all body systems. The combination of Western and TCVM has been the key to managing Cardiff’s (and many of my patient’s) disease.
