Using holistic approaches for ears and bugs

Sorry, I missed this one in November.

Good morning Christina,we stay in Mosselbay in SA. I’d like to ask you something? My daughter and friend going to st francisbay for the week and on te way the Yorkie of her have a very sore ear and cannot tatch the ear,the yorkie is restless,don’t want to eat and drink the ear is to sensitive.What can they do to make ear infection for dogs better? We like homopath medicine,the vets can be very expensive? Can you help us? Another thing,Ants and ticks,we don’t know what to do to keep them clean we try all the sprays and drops on the neck,is there a homopatic remedy for the bugs,they scrach all the time?? Thankyou and good day!! Ina.

First, for everyone, please do not let the cost of good holistic care stop you from using veterinary care when needed. If you follow the 7 keys to health and begin holistic treatments that you can learn to do yourself for free as soon as the little minor indications of imbalance appear, you will save lots of money. You will also save money by feeding a fresh food diet, not vaccinating except for occasional rabies (or to stay legal in some countries), not using chemicals like revolution, frontline, etc.

Second, some veterinarians, especially integrative ones, will be willing to barter with you. What skills do you have? Can you clean their parking lot, sidewalk, clinic? Are you a bookkeeper or accountant? Are you great with the internet and able to help them build a web site? Could you get new clients for them? Call the veterinarian of your choice (especially an integrative one), ask to speak with the veterinarian and tell them your financial situation and that you would like to build up credit for future problems as well as helping this current issue. Ask if they will take payment plans and think what you could offer as collateral. Ask if the clinic has its own fund to help those in need. Call multiple veterinarians, especially integrative clinics.

I do not suggest trying homeopathic medicine until you have some training or some good books, as there are 4,000 medicines from which to choose, then you need to be able to carefully evaluate the result. Soon I will teach my 6 day class as a live skype/webinar series, so people from around the world can learn more about homeopathy.

I do strongly recommend getting some training in understanding the wide range of approaches to health so you can be in charge of what you choose for treatments for your animals. There are so many different ways to stimulate healing that you never need to give up trying. From books, on-line and in classes you can learn Reiki (which can take the “bad” out of vaccines and any needed drugs, or even make food healthier as well as deal with pain and anxiety) lots of infor at, massage, HTA, TTouch, acupressure, flower essence therapy, all of which are 100% safe to use for any problems. Many of the other approaches you can do to help heal your animals need some training since they need to be used more carefully – homeopathy, herbal medicine, Chinese herbs, aromatherapy. In addition to classes there are many very good list serves filled with people experienced with not vaccinating and feeding raw meat diets. Classes are found through your health food store, by phone or on-line. As with human health approaches, there are many different opinions, so you need to experiment and see what makes your animals more or less healthy.

For your dog’s ear pain right now I would find a Reiki Practitioner (and they can be from anywhere in the world as it can be done long distance) or quickly take a class.  Kathleen Prasad , Mohan’s free attunements (so you can give the Reiki),  Ian Sadler’s free attunements & treatments,

  3. Christine at, To receive free distance Reiki send her your first name only, city and state, and whether or not you have had any Reiki training. She invites you to include your pets as well.  She uses a teddy bear and does a full body Reiki distance treatment for one hour each Sunday evening from 9 p.m. until 10 p.m. EST.
  4. And a team of over 100 healers will send free healing energy until you say not to. Email Barbara with your healing request, name of animal, species, color & age. In the subject say request through Dr. Chambreau

Rescue remedy from the health food store is often available in many countries. Buy the people one, not the pet one. Put one drop in a separate water bowl. Put 10 drops in a cup of water and compress the ear once he will let you touch it. Put 4 drops in an ounce of water in a jar and give a few drops in every meal and every few hours in between. You cannot use it too often. Put on your hands when you are petting. It is totally safe. It is great for people too – for anxiety, stress, shock, grief and more.

there is more once you can touch the ear. If you cannot touch the ear after Reiki and Rescue Remedy you must go to a vet, hopefully an integrative one.


for fleas – order my FLEAS BE GONE – a holistic veterinarian’s guide to natural flea control from amazon (it is a kindle, but you can read it on your regular computer).

for ants and fleas I would look at cedar oil products, neem oil, carnation oil and any local “folklore” remedies, which are often safer and more gentle on the planet.
