Tessie was diagnosed with an aggressive soft tissue sarcoma (tumour) 7 weeks ago, manifesting as a large swelling on her hind leg. The prognosis was not good and we were offered chemotherapy or a leg amputation. However I wanted to try a holistic approach to help with pain management and make Tessie as comfortable as possible.

​Birgit gave her a treatment plan which included acupuncture, Iscador, chinese herbs and homeopathy. As Tessie had lost a lot of weight because of the tumour, Birgit recommended increasing her meals to three a day using a raw food diet.

The improvement in Tessie has been astounding. When the sarcoma was diagnosed, Tessie was very subdued and in a lot of pain, limping badly on her hind leg. What a contrast to now, the tumour has reduced so much in size, it is barely visible. Tessie is much happier in herself and playful again, reminding me of how she was as a puppy (she is 10 years old).  She has put on a lot of weight, is physically much stronger than she has been for a long time, and is scarcely limping at all.

​I can’t quite believe how quickly she has improved. This has given us so much hope that Tessie will be with us for a while longer yet. Thank you so much Birgit.
