Drugs don't heal disease. Neither do supplements or remedies. THE BODY HEALS ITSELF. This is true for any body: human, canine, or feline. The body is either in a state of health or in a state of disease. It really doesn't matter which disease.

How are you ensuring that your pet's body will maintain perfect health? Are you aware of all the chemicals you're exposing them to via food, treats, toys, cleaners, grooming products, and your personal products?

Matt Monarch and his wife, Angela Stokes-Monarch know and share an enormous amount of good information about achieving and maintaining vigorous health naturally and I encourage you to take a few minutes to enjoy their latest laid-back, informative video explaining cleansing: "You Can't Take Something To Heal".

I did not use Matt's exact suggested method (see video here) to cleanse Buttons' body and trigger its natural healing response (though I follow his protocol for my own health). But I DID give her oral liquids and herbs to achieve similar results and help her liver and intestines dump toxins.

Those of you who've read The Healing Art of Pet Parenthood know that I studied under Dr. Rich Anderson who has been one of the world's pioneers in the arena of the body's ability to maintain vibrant health through intestinal cleansing and nutritional support.

As the book describes, his information and cleansing programs were absolutely foundational in my helping Buttons heal from cancer without chemo, radiation, or amputation when she was diagnosed (biopsy done twice to ensure accuracy) and given 6 weeks to live.

YES: within 4 months of implementing a "clear/cleanse/build" protocol Buttons was cancer-free.

YES: she remained cancer-free for 11 vibrant years to the age of 19.

NO: I never gave her a drug or natural remedy to cure her cancer or to fight her cancer.

YES: I gave her remedies to help cleanse and build her body so IT COULD HEAL ITSELF, which it DID!

YES: via my consultations, I can help you learn how to stack the odds against your pet ever developing a disease such as cancer and how to easily do all that you can to help them maintain a strong immune system.

WHY: would you want to wait until your pet is ill to schedule a consultation?!?!?!?

Holistic care means viewing "the whole" as in: the entire body as a connected, cellular-communicating organism. It is not about symptom-treating with natural remedies. It is not about fighting the disease. It is about cleansing the body and then supporting it nutritionally so it can heal itself...or maintain its vibrant health.

You cannot truly heal the body of one ailment (symptom/disease) and have it continue to suffer from a second or third one. The body is either healed or unhealed. Healthy or unhealthy. This is true whether the body is human, canine or feline.

This is a totally different paradigm than the one held by mainstream western, allopathic, big pharma medicine- which generates billions of dollars more than maintaining a toxic-free, well-nourished, self-healing body can.

Charlotte Gerson (founder of the Gerson Institute-see documentary for free here ) says this same thing in the brilliant documentary, Food Matters.

For the sake of your body, and that of your pets', I encourage you to consider investigating this view (the one I used to heal my dog's body of cancer...and everything else) by watching these forthright, informative and empowering documentaries. It will only take a couple of hours of your time... less than you've probably spent in the last year sitting in your doctor's or vet's waiting room.

In honor of today (and maybe tomorrow, too ;-) a
first time ever special:

Buy one 60-minute holistic phone consultation ($65)
and receive a second consultation FREE to gift to a friend!

Because you don't ever want to hear your vet say the words, "We got the results, and I'm so sorry to have to tell you this..."
especially knowing that there are things we can easily and inexpensively do to help stack the odds against your pet ever developing a disease such as cancer.

Don't have regrets. If you schedule your consultation today, not only will you know you are doing everything you can for your pet's well-being, but a consultation (especially in-home) is fun, interesting and informative, and will leave you feeling confident, assured and empowered.

HOLISTIC CONSULTATION: It's all about prevention, pet parents! What our pets are exposed to regularly has a HUGE impact on their health. We are all what we eat, breathe, and absorb through our skin. Our pets' bodies metabolize everything so much faster than ours: what everyday chemicals may take 40 or 50 years of exposure to create disease in our bodies, may only take 3-6 years of exposure to create disease in theirs.

In our one-on-one personalized consultation, we'll discuss your choice of food, treats, toys, home and personal products- thoroughly examining everything you currently expose your pet to- including insidious things you are not even aware of! After explaining why some of those things may be extremely harmful to your pet, I'll share some simple, easily attainable alternatives that I myself use and help guide you into creating the safest, healthiest environment possible in your home.

Just scroll down and read the left side of
this page for details.
Happy health...happy leap year!

(you will automatically receive a second, free consultation when we schedule the original- you'll only need to give me the name of the pet parent you're gifting it to and then have them email me to schedule)

Two dear friends of mine have had to start that painful journey this month, of transitioning from a physical/spiritual connection with their beloved dog to a purely spiritual one.

It can take a lot of work to lean into that wrenching pain instead of away from it, and allow ourselves to find that sacred space inside of us where the agony and ecstasy merge; where love and connection lives and can never, ever die.

Thanks to Gretchen Kuhns for this lovely poem by Henry Van Dyke, which was written on the beautiful memorial cards she sent out for her heart dog, Biskit.

To our boys, Frisbee and Biskit- we bless you in your transitions. We bless your pet parents. May your souls soar free while always staying connected to those you loved most.

“I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white
sails to the morning breeze and starts
for the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until at length
she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come
to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says;
"There, she is gone!"

"Gone where?"
Gone from my sight. That is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull
and spar as she was when she left my side
and she is just as able to bear her
load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone
at my side says, "There, she is gone!"
There are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad
"Here she comes!"
And that is dying.”

Ahhh, cheese.
Delicious, creamy, convenient, tasty, easy, wonderful cheese!
  • Full of salt.
  • Full of steroids and hormones (eg: Bovine Somatotropin: synthesized growth hormones injected into cows for more milk production).
  • A mucous-forming nightmare to the immune system (stop eating it for a week and notice how much less nasal you sound and how you're not blowing your nose as much).
  • Even Dr. Oz's wife, Lisa, has tweeted about the addictive chemicals in cheese and her difficulty and determination to stop eating it forever.
I saw an online recipe today for "natural" home-made dog treats. It had 3 ingredients and one of them was cheese.

Please, pet parents- DO NOT give your beloved pets cheese in any form for any reason. Or sugar. Those things are slow-acting poisons and are far more harmful to our pets than to us because their life spans are so much shorter.

They really aren't going to love you more because you feed them ingredients that are tasty and unhealthy. They have no choice but to eat the things YOU CHOOSE to give them. Why not make sure those things are only healthy ones?

If you want to make your dog really happy, take him on an extra walk this week instead of showing your love with unhealthy food.

In other words, go ahead and continue to blame the dog for cutting the cheese, but please don't feed him/her cheese anymore. Like me- commit yourself to bad puns instead of bad ingredients.

Loved getting this from a local pet sitter and happy to pass it on to you all:
May you have as much fun in 2012 as you can before someone makes you stop!
