One of our Parakeets has/had a fatty tumor on her chest wall, we know bcus we had her x-rayed by the vet months back, I was worried she was eggbound. Needless to say she was Grossly overweight too, Shes a Rescue we adopted a few years back, Long story there, but the housing conditions were terribly sad. Vet mentioned Surgery but was kinda worried looking even talking about it. We were like no way with what we know thru Cure zone. I have to admit I have tried lots of herbs and this n that. But Hubby mentioned one day about a month ago, Ummm hon what about Lugols. Sometimes I think I think too hard, We were like BINGO! YEAH Lugols! I have been putting a drop in the water twice a week, and every few days Dabbing a drop on her chest wall were the Tumor is Located. Ok heres the Miraculous Part! She has lost half her body weight, she never could fly, and she flew into the kitchen to me a couple times now. Shes out Playing with the Others, Interacting, Really enjoying Life. I Truly Believe The Tumor is Dissappearing due to the Iodine. Shes a Diffrent Bird for sure. Plus I Ordered some herbs for birds called Herb Salad it says to Enable your birds to self medicate by having these out readily available to them. It contains Dandelion,Oatstraw,Plantain,Red Clover,Milk Thistle,Echinacea, Pau d'arco,Elderberry,Yarrow,Olive Leaf,Thyme Leaf,Lavender,Wheatgrass,Garlic,Spirulina,Astragalus,Barberry,Chickweed,Kelp,Licorice,WORMWOOD,Marshmallow... Sorry So Lengthy of a Post but Wanted to share Our Success Story. I Might Repost this on the Animal Forum too. Much Love To You All!
