Article in Similia

Similia is the Australian Journal of Homeopathic Medicine, and they published 3 brief summaries of animals I treated.  This issue was focused on animal remedies for both people and animals, so I chose cases using Apis (bee) and Sepia (cuttlefish ink).  Another articles used Elaps Corallinus (snake).

One article focused on three of the approaches to treat cancer, Ramakrishnan Method, Banerji protocol and use of the Lanthanide medicines. A 10 year old collie with lymphoma of the gums was cured and was healthy at 14 at the time of the article. A 12 year old dog had a huge carcinoma on the side of his head involving the sinuses completely resolve once the correct medicine (Symphytum) was given and lived another 2 years. A ten year old terrier diagnosed with lymphoma of the stomach was given Gadolinium arsenicosum and she has been in full remission for 13 months so far.

Another practitioner showed how careful case taking led to the remedies to cure or help  many animals. A Schnauzer had digestive issues resolve, then years later kidney problems including nighttime incontinence resolved, with lowering of kidney values in the blood tests. One remedy cured a young Boxer of soft stools and a second is helping anxiety and need for weight gain. Multiple remedies helped improve mobility and anxiety while eliminating vomiting in a young Bernese Mountain dog. One remedy cured a male Maremma from severe storm anxiety.

Another excellent article on case taking and evaluating the response for animals is by a great veterinarian in Australia working with severe skin problems endured by a 3 year old Miniature Poodle. As the steroids were withdrawn she had severe aggravations on several remedies. Once Pulsatilla was prescribed, she steadily and slowly (over 6 months) improved til now merely has an occasional flare up.

    I have lost two precious cats with cancer in the last 6 months. One with cancer in his lower jaw and the other with stomach cancer.
    This in spite of my holistic approach to diet and supplements! They were both about 15 years of age. My biggest mistake was not having a feeding tube – trying to syringe feed is not enough to prevent cachexia and the downward spiral. I have two more cats in my care who are about the same age. I am obsessed in learning all I can about how to prevent cancer and treat cancer with homeopathy. Please point me in the right direction. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

      Dear Suzanne,
      We all want our family (2 and 4 legged) to live forever. I brag about the 34 and 38 year old cats AND always remind people that it is a combination of genes (those telomeres just end according to your genetics) and discovering what are the best health approaches for any one animal. Our cats are like the canaries in the coal mines – – – they do become ill because of our severely stressed environment, regardless of the very best care. There are no right answers. Vegetarians and smokers both die of cancer. conventionally treated cats and holistically treated cats die of cancer.

      Please feel no guilt. I have seen cats get a feeding tube put in and die the next day because they did not want that. you did not make a mistake. The best way to live our lives is not to be obsessed with anything, to have a great curiosity, observe the subtle changes (why I suggest keeping a journal), try different approaches, keep reading and studying. Rather than being obsessed in preventing cancer and treating cancer, be obsessed with learning for the sake of learning, for developing a positive attitude (very important), for hearing that so many approaches work that you surrender the thought “there is a right way”. Do what makes sense to you, what your cats love, what your intuition feels is right. Learn to trust your intuition.

      I would suggest subscribing to Animal Wellness Magazine, and Dogs Naturally (I know you have cats, but they cover deep homeopathy and other approaches that apply equally to cats), BrightHaven’s blog. Rather than googling “cancer cure for cats” google “healthy cats naturally; build health for cats; natural methods to heal cats; etc” and get on the list serves, blog posts that make sense to you.

      Re-read the 7 keys to health 7 keys to health. Enjoy and love your cats rather than worrying about health. Join the webinar classes of Dr. Feinman and myself as well as see conversation from students. an

      Begin now to work with an integrative vet – homeopathy, TCVM, etc. Of course my favorite is homeopathy but TCVM has improved the health of many animals as well. Depends on who is near you.

      Do a Pet Health Coaching call (phone) with me to learn more and help you find the best vet.

      Keep reading, learning and studying AND HAVING FUN – in your life and with your cats.
