My cat is on insuline and b12 and a canned food diet. i have another cat i have on your product. i tried it since his symptoms were classic diabetes. he is doing great.

I am surprised your veterinarian is raising concern over our homeopathic products. It is registered with the FDA. The reason why homeopathy is safe is because it is usually diluted and succussed so many times it does not contain any molecules of the original substance. Here is my simplified explanation about the product that I give to doctors that write in with questions about Dia-IonX. We also advise customers that Dia-IonX is not a substitute for insulin. If insulin is needed, it should be given, and a good relationship with the local veterinarian is essential so that the patient can be well monitored in case the dosage of insulin might need to be adjusted.

Dia-IonX is a homeopathic preparation of 13 ingredients in the 10X, 20X, 30X potencies. In homeopathy, a 10X potency is one in which the tincture has been diluted 1 to 9 parts, and then one part of that mixture is diluted again 1 to 9, and so on until this is done 10 times. The energy signature of the original substance is carried in the liquid, but very few molecules of the original substance remains in the liquid, and by the time you get to a 24X dilution there are no more molecules of the tincture left, just the energy instruction.

With each dilution, the activity becomes more focused, somewhat like a laser compared to a flashlight. 10X, 20X, and 30X are considered low to moderate potencies. The different potencies act slightly differently in the body, so it is common for preparations to contain several. The remedies were chosen based upon their ability to modify the symptoms of diabetes and stimulate internal modifications that lead to healing. Having it in homeopathic form makes it safer than most prescription drugs that need to be under the supervision of a doctor. Though homeopathy isn\'t used as much in the United States, over half of veterinarians in Europe use homeopathy alongside conventional therapy. It can offer some help in cases where more options are needed. For more information about the individual ingredients and the history of homeopathy, the website is a great educational tool.

The product is registered with the FDA and meets the United States Pharmacopeia standards. For a better understanding of this you may go to

Because homeopathy is patient specific, one must match the symptoms of the patient to the remedy. The remedies selected in our product address the more common symptoms. Because these are OTC ingredients and not prescription items, there is no requirement for years of drug trials. That explains why most prescription drugs are much more costly than OTC products that are formulated based upon common knowledge garnered over the past two hundred years. We use this information to select the ingredients and rely on our customer feedback to let us know if we are doing a good job and meeting their needs. The IonX products have helped many pets reduce their symptoms without causing toxicity to their bodies.

I also encourage owners to use other products such as digestive enzymes, probiotics, and a fish oil supplement for a synergistic effect for faster results. Dia-IonX also helps the body to better utilize the other supplements. Our goal is keep the pet as happy and healthy for as long as possible.

I hope you will find the above sites satisfying and if you have any further questions please contact us again.

Best wishes,

I started my 8 1/2 yr old mini schnauzer on Dia-IonX about 3 weeks ago in hopes it will relieve the symptoms of diabetes. She takes it really well. My life and work schedule doesn't allow me to adhere to the rigid schedule required for insulin injections. Prior to starting Dia-IonX, she was refusing food. On day 2, she began eating again and seeming to do much better. On day 19, she refused food again. This is day 20. She refused breakfast but finally ate it this afternoon. She was overweight a month ago but shouldn't lose much more now. Her fixation with water had subsided somewhat but getting her next drink seems to be her only reason for living this week. I have to limit her intake. If left to her, she drinks until she can't hold anymore and then vomits it back up. Her bladder doesn't hold well either. These blatent symptoms seemed to appear overnight. Although I realize she can't help it, I'm having as much trouble coping as she is. My house is quickly becoming a mess and my patience is wearing thin. Is there anyway to alleviate these symptoms or are they permanent now? Thanks for your help!
