Re: True or False?


Hello and a HAPPY Thursday to you and your pets.

Homeopathic Remedies for Thyroid disease

I recently read a very interesting Scientific study comparing a pretty common Homeopathic treatment for Hyperthyroidism in cats, versus treating with conventional medication (tapazole).

A large percent of the cats responded to the Homeopathic, and remained free of thyroid disease.

The homeopathic was Nat Mur – For the dose and the schedule that I advise, go here:


True or False?

We live in a world of pretty strongly held beliefs – with beliefs that get broken.

Remember this from school?

The world, 500 years ago… Flat or Round?

…At the time, Conventional Wisdom said FLAT… huh.

So let’s fast forward to alternative medicine and some pretty widely held conventional beliefs.

First… Conventional… Scientific Based medicine is ALWAYS more effective.


Cancer Myths

Let’s use the example of a dog with lymph cancer. Conventional Medicine can ONLY produce a remission (and potentially a tonne of side effects) NOT a cure.

There are Many, many alternate options, such as Artemisinin, which used together can be even more effective than chemo.

Chronic Vomiting/Diarrhea

OR how about a Cat with chronic vomiting and diarrhea.

The conventional approach is to do a PILE of expensive diagnostic tests, and likely end up with the diagnosis of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

The treatment….STEROIDS. With ALL of their side effects.

The Alternate Approach?

Diet change
Herbal IBD remedies
Homeopathic Vomiting/Diarrhea remedies

Often MORE effective, and with LESS side effects – definitely far LESS costly.

Back And Disc Disease

Your dog gets a painful back.

Conventionally..X-rays, perhaps additional diagnostics (ie CT Scan), Surgery if Neurologic signs.

Then the ‘Scientific’ Treatment…


Which can lead to vomiting/diarrhea, liver and kidney disease.

SO HOW about the Alternate Options?

Herbal Anti-inflammatories
Homeopathic Back pain relief
Herbal Muscle relaxants – I especially like Valerian.

These are all often AS EFFECTIVE, much safer, remedies that you can utilize at home, and far better for the long term health of your pet.

So IF you are questioning some of the Conventional Beliefs, and you are wanting to try a few of the Alternate At Home Remedies, go here:



P.S. Vaccines and Pet Food have got to be the BIGGEST held myths around what is SAFE and EFFECTIVE for your dog or cat’s health.

Most ‘Veterinary Approved’ Pet Foods still have a poorly digested carbohydrate as the first ingredient. When I look at my cat who is an OBLIGATE CARNIVORE, I can only wonder How is it that we still include these in ANY feline diet?

Then there is the whole vaccine issue.

Do you really think that the little 3lb Pomeranian needs yearly Distemper boosters?

I don’t.

You will be hard pressed to find a Veterinarian that has even seen a case of Distemper.

Then there is the VOLUME of the vaccines.

WHY does the little Pomeranian get the SAME VOLUME of Vaccine as my 100Lb Black Lab, Lewis?

Another one of those Conventional Myths I am thinking.

So my point in all this is to get you guys to QUESTION what you are told, or may read in the press about the so called NO Scientific Proof behind Holistic Remedies.

Because this same press is doing a poor job of questioning some pretty widely held conventional beliefs, which are often doing more harm than good.

Take charge of your pet’s health.

Make some BETTER choices.

    Oh, I am going to be so disappointed if I don’t get one of these! There has to be so much information that will be helpful with my little Min Pin. I am very grateful to you for taking the time and effort to compile this information for the regular person who want their pet to be healthy and happy. I hope I will be one of the first to get theirs on Friday morning—unless, of course I win one! Thank you again, Doc , for your time and trouble–see you tomorrow–Cherie Sagmiller
