HELPING ANIMALS AND PEOPLE IN JAPAN
Homeopathy is great to treat all diseases, especially severe and acute ones that are happening in Japan. The Japanese Homeopathic Association has a site for donations – http://jphf.or.jp/support/20110315_bokin_en.html. I can forward you the letter from the president requesting money. He lists the remedies for radiation damage, noting that individualization is best, of course – Cadm-s, Sol, Pluton, Kali-iod, Cadm-s, Rad-br, Uran-n, and Caes-h. I will pass on more information as I get it. Prayers, Reiki and intention will all help, too.
In North America – after reading and speaking with many people – I feel there is little risk to ourselves or our animals if we live east of the Rockies. Even for those in the west, there is little risk of airborne radiation that would affect our thyroids. The bigger concern will be in foods imported from Japan (even unlabeled in processed foods). This is one reason I am so passionate about eating fresh, especially locally raised foods, whenever possible and limiting the ingestion of processed or imported foods. According to Goeff D’Arcy of Herbs for Pets in his latest newsletter, taking kelp supplements, especially from the larger northern kelps, will be useful against incidental radioactive iodine exposure. He agrees with me that there is a large increase in thyroid disorders for all species. If you are in Japan, then you know to be taking potassium iodide to block uptake of radioactive iodine.
CASE STUDY Holistic approach to diarrhea
A very sweet, six month old cockapoo had started 2 weeks before with diarrhea. He had been on a raw diet (oatmeal, rice and organic ground turkey and beef) for a few weeks before the diarrhea started. Since homeopathy treats the individual animals rather than merely the symptoms, I needed to ask some more questions. He loves to be out in the snow for a long time and loves to roll in it. He is very wiggly to be brushed (typical puppy and they’ve only had him a few months). He had junk in his eyes and a foul doggy odor that cleared up on the raw diet (therefore not a significant symptom of the vital force/vibrational pattern of this individual). The BM can be a pile or formed with mucus covering it, with an odor. Three weeks ago they had given Pulsatilla homeopathically (prefers cold, not thirsty, friendly – so a good choice). The mucus started after the Pulsatilla but the stools were firmer for a time. For a time the stool has had a smell ranging from very bad to medium. There are many remedies that could fit these symptoms. The joy of working with single remedies is that we can use the response to one remedy to help choose the next remedy. Sulphur is a chronic remedy for Pulsatilla and has more “smelliness” than Pulsatilla with its bland discharges. It, too, prefers cold. I prescribed supportive treatment of Mitomax (my current favorite probiotic – order at www.ChristinaChambreau.com/products.php), marshmallow root (many people use slippery elm for digestive upsets but this is more sustainable and gentler as well). I like to dose animals in liquid and offer it to them. Some are smart enough to know when they need a remedy and if it is the right one. He drank the 200c Sulphur and had firm, non smelly stools immediately.
