CoEnzymeQ10 And Why I Use It.
In October of 2014, I took in a Forever Foster Dog named Bohdi. Bohdi had congestive heart failure due to dilated cardiomyopathy, and Stage4/strong Lyme disease. Vets said Bohdi was dying.
The all natural regimen I’d put together for Bohdi included CoEnzyme Q10. I was not previously familiar with CoQ10, but did my usual ‘homework’ and began to look into every angle and avenue of CoQ10. I was very surprised to find – it’s not just for the heart! While it serves as an antioxidant, CoQ10 also plays a vital role in the chain of metabolic chemical reactions that generate energy within cells. Upon researching this, I found cases of humans and animals, in which CoQ10 had been used successfully in paralysis/spinal cases. It made sense to me. If we dramatically increased the oxygen flow to the ‘damaged’ areas, then the swelling and inflammation would also drastically reduce, allowing the essential ‘life’ to return to the damaged cells!!

Since I had a paralysis dog (Bella), I decided to start giving it to her every day. It couldn’t hurt, right? I easily added it to her raw food each day.
I can’t say that I noticed a difference. However, I continued it for 9 months, and then stopped at the beginning of July 2015. Summer holidays.
By the third week, Bella started ‘squawking’ and ‘screaming’ constantly throughout the day. Especially when she was about to move, and sometimes, even when she wasn’t. Very quickly, she started losing her mobility. Her back legs became crossed over each other, and I couldn’t ‘undo’ them. It would last for minutes, hours, to the next day, before she would regain any control and be able to walk again. And even then, it was very precarious. I knew something was very ‘off’.
How did it change so drastically? ‘WHAT’ had changed? It didn’t take me long to realize that the ONLY thing that had changed was the removal of the CoQ10 from the daily regimen. It had to be that!?
Immediately I began to add it back into her food each day, and within days, all her crying had stopped, and she was able to move with no problems, nor did she lose mobility again. I have had Zero ‘episodes’ since, and it’s been over 3 years! So, even though I couldn’t tell the CoQ10 was doing anything for her, it sure showed itself when I quit.
It was because of this that I learned the importance of the CoQ10 with paralysis/spinal issues. I have both paralysis dogs, Bella and Beanut, getting it as part of their daily regimen, and I highly recommend it to anyone I speak to with degenerative diseases/conditions.
But, I have also found that using Q10 in allergies/auto immune cases is also greatly beneficial. It seems to help with speeding but things up, and I contribute that’s to the increase of the blood flow, working better to eliminate out all the ‘bad’? I found that when I used Q10 in such cases, the recovery time has been much quicker, opposed to the cases I didn’t? I suppose the ‘jury’ is still out on this, but with what I have witnessed, I think it’s made me a believer?
I also always recommend purchasing CoQ10 ONLY from a trusted source – such as a ‘Mom and Pop’ type Health Food Store. By purchasing from these sources, you have a better chance for guaranteed purity. That is essential with the health of our animals. Buying from many online sources, big box, and pharmacy stores, or wholesale/warehouse, you truly get what you pay for and have no purity guarantee. Cheaper does not mean ‘better’. Plus, the fillers and add-ins that could be in their pills, could be detrimental to our animals. Therefore, I only use the best CoQ10’s; as then, I know what I’m getting. And, I know what results to expect, and wouldn’t give my animals anything less.
(My recommendation for a good Q10 source would be by Natural Factors if a local health food store is not available)
