I often get asked, “Can flower essences, homoeopathy and acupuncture work on animals too?”
If you want the science-based statistics, then I have found, and so have many other veterinarians working with these therapies, that about 75 to 80% of animal cases coming to our clinics are significantly improved, as judged by the owners. Most of these animals have had conditions for which conventional medicines or surgery from ‘normal’ vets has not helped.
It is interesting that the practitioners at the Bach Center in England, home of the Bach Flower remedies, also find about a similar success rate in humans and animals using Bach flower remedies for both emotional and physical ailments.
However, maybe I am the wrong person to ask, because although our clinic has treated many animals every day for many years with such therapies, (we use homoeopathics, Bach, Australian Bush and WA flower essences, Himalayan, Canadian animal specific flower essences, crystal and shell essences), I suspect that the animals we see are of a ‘high frequency’ or more drug sensitive, than the average animal. The owners of these animals often tell us how not only did several conventional drugs or vaccinations not even work on their animal, but still caused bad side effects. It is likely that these animals have ‘sensitive new age’ owners as well, as we tend to be attracted to individuals (of any species) in our lives who have a similar energy frequency.
So, if you have come across flower essences and other vibrational medicines to be useful to you and your human family members, then it is very likely you own (or are owned by) animals who also are SNAD’s or SNAC’s (sensitive new age dogs or cats), and you may well find that your animals may find it hard to cope with the conventional ‘low vibrational’ drugs and vaccinations that your next door neighbour’s not- so –SNAD or SNAC can cope with.
It is therefore important for your animal’s long term health to only use minimal conventional vaccinations, which can often be very much reduced without endangering your pet (you will have to see your nearest holistic vet to work out an individual program for your pet), maybe by using homoeopathic nosodes instead. Especially important to keep up the good vibrations is to have your pet on a balanced natural diet (no tinned, dried or processed food – lots of veges, fruit, raw meat and bones, flax/fish oil and kelp.
So many pets reflect the energy of the owners they are most involved with.
I am so pleased when the owner is on essences or homoeopathics at the same time as the pet, as both will get better so much more quickly.
It is so common for us to see animals whose owners have similar problems energetically – usually of the same charka, if not the exact same disease, such as a diabetic dog and an owner with stomach ulcers, or a dog with congestive heart failure, and the owner has asthma. Often it is even more similar – one pleasant gentleman came in and both he and his dog had numerous scars on their left knees from several failed cruciate ligament surgeries. “Must run in the family”, he joked.
I think some animals are amazingly unconditionally loving and are likely to try and “help” their owners by clearing their owners energy field of whatever is causing the owner’s symptoms (that’s what it seems they are doing to me, anyway). Cardiac specialists have said that people who have well-loved pets have a very significantly greater chance of not needing heart surgery, or of recovering from surgery if needed, and have longer life expectancies than non-pet owning heart disease patients.
I have seen many dogs who will be so caring of the children in their family, that they exhibit allergic symptoms to things the children are allergic to. The dogs respond to kinesiological desensitization, or other vibrational medicines, but will “refuse” to become totally clear of reacting to allergens until the parents have identified and treated the childrens’ allergies. Sometimes we find out what the child is allergic to by the dog “telling” us (by having the same allergy), the parents not having been aware of what the child was reacting to. Often previous vaccinations have been the initiating factor to both the dog’s and child’s allergies, and these need to be cleared using homoeopathics, or essences to clear the emotional ‘theme’, before the allergies can be cleared.
Whenever your pet has a difficult to treat problem, always look at imbalances which need to be addressed in the human family members at the same time and treat as a group problem – it could save you a vet bill or two!
