Herb Sense

by Anthea Appel, certified graduate/practitioner of small animal naturopathy Before I knew any better I used to buy my herbs at my local health food store, or supermarket, or at the Farmer’s Market, or even worse, in those little capsules sold at my local pharmacy. Not a good idea. And, I’ll tell you why. One time, years ago, I bought four ounces of lose Echinacea Root from my local health food store. When I got home I took a closer look at the herb and something just seemed off. But I still went ahead and made a tincture. The best way to...

By doing this, you will better be able to determine when the immune system may need a boost, when to aid a natural cleanse, or if you need to support a healing crisis. When you desire to see a change in results, change what you are doing… The definition...

Animal Chiropractic Can Help Keep Pets Healthy and Happy

By: Dr. Erin O’Connor Certified A.C.A.N. Practitioner Animal chiropractic is a gentle, yet highly effective treatment modality. It allows an animal to utilize their very own healing capabilities by restoring normal motion and position of spinal and/or extremity joints. This allows for proper functioning of the nervous system, which acts as a super highway, sending messages to every organ, tissue, and cell in the entire body. Chiropractic takes the “road blocks” down through adjustments to allow the animal’s body to heal naturally through...

Part 3 – Why Not Feed Your Pet A Raw Diet?

But Don’t Raw-Fed Animals Pose Health Risks To Humans? By Dr. Jeannie Thomason, co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy Actually,  raw fed animals pose no more health risk to humans than kibble or canned food fed animals do!  Did you know that the majority of human cases of salmonellosis have been acquired through the ingestion or handling of contaminated, processed pet foods and treats – NOT raw meat?  In fact, if you do some research, you will find that there have actually been no known incidence of human beings being...

Infusing Group Energy Into Your Business (and Your Life)

By: Megan Ayrault – Power Of Touch For Animals So in the last newsletter, I said I would share more about why Group Energy is critical to fuel your own business (and personal) growth,and make it more sustainable.  And that I would include some suggestions, in addition to the TEAM Membership,for how to find or create it. This is especially important if you’re a “solopreneur”, and don’t have the team element of workplace colleagues and/or employees, which is most likely the case for your natural animal wellness business! Why is some version of...

“Why” Did You Get Into The World of Natural Wellness Care For Animals?

By: Megan Ayrault – Power Of Touch For Animals And a 2nd important question for you to contemplate for yourself… (if you’re far enough into it yet) … have you experienced any shifts in your own “Why” yet? Perhaps some surprises? Why did I (Megan Ayrault)  get into bodywork for animals? First it was horses, then dogs. Yes, I wanted to help animals (horses in particular at first). I also wanted to be a great horsewoman. Really connect with them, and know what’s going on with them. And then yes, be able to help them as a result of...

Breed Specific Dog Food – Is It Necessary?

Breed Specific Dog Food – Is It Necessary?

By Carole Milligan, certified by ACAN as a Carnivore Nutrition Consultant For a few months I have been seeing a TV commercial that states different dog breeds have different nutritional needs. The suggestion is made that purebred dogs require special diets. I suppose that means your average mixed breed dog can just eat plain old kibble. Don’t believe that marketing propaganda gimmick for one second! The truth is that all dogs, regardless of breed, have identical nutritional needs. Regardless of the size of the animal or breed, dogs have: The...

Today I Was A Hero

By: Megan Ayrault – Power Of Touch For Animals Today I was a hero! I had a chance to make a difference, the chance to actually save a life! But I almost missed that chance because of a silly thought in my mind. If something else hadn’t happened to change the situation, the outcome could have been very different. Especially for that poor mother duck and her ducklings…. I actually saved multiple lives. 6, 7 or 8, depending on exactly what you think would have happened in the hypothetical alternative ending. And yes, I’m talking about the...
