How Dietary Supplements Helped Me Recover From Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA)

In my third occurrence of Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA), my dad (who is also my veterinarian) has used multiple dietary supplements to augment my health and improve my recovery. My dad thinks, and I really feel, that these supplements, along with mediations, Chinese herbs, acupuncture, and a diet tailored for my specific condition, prevented my disease from abruptly worsening and permitted improvement more rapidly than my previous two IMHA episodes.

The medications used to suppress my immune system from destroying its red blood cells (RBCs) don’t allow my body to effectively fight off bacterial, viral, and fungal organisms. Therefore, supporting my immune health via supplements and diet is vitally important.

For supplements, I get Omega 3 Fatty Acids (salmon oil), an antioxidant, and an immune system booster. Omega 3 Fatty Acids have an powerful anti-inflammatory effect on my blood, nervous system, and joints. The anti-oxidant helps to combat production of free radicals formed by my (previously) hyperactive immune system’s destruction of my red blood cells (RBCs) and day to day activity. The immune system boosting supplement ensures my immunosuppressed body will be better able to fight off opportunistic infections.

Thankfully, I get both immune system and antioxidant support by taking i Love Dogs brand Reishi with Green Tea tablets. After I started on this supplement, the warts (Canine Papilloma Virus) I had developed in my immunocompromised state began to regress. Within a few weeks, the unsightly skin blemishes were completely gone!

My dad and I were so fortunate to have attended the i Love Dogs & Hotel Maya Tweet Up/Facebook Meet Up event, where we became more familiar with i Love Dogs dietary supplements. It turns out their Reishi with Green Tea product was perfect for my particular health needs. The Reishi mushroom has immune system boosting properties. The decaffeinated Green Tea provides a potent antioxidant effect.

My use of the product as part of my get healthy ammunition has permitted me to become an i Love Dogs Ambassador. I am so proud to be able to help spread the message of this great product to dogs all over the world!

Fairly soon, some of my canine friends and family members will be sharing photos and stories of their use of i Love Dogs supplements in my blog posts. Stay tuned to see and read the good news on the canine health front.
