Healthy Pets, Naturally

Friday, 11 February 2011 20:18


Black_DogProviding premium pet care doesn’t mean serving Fido or Fluffy a feast on fancy china. In fact, taking good care of your pet is a lot like taking good care of yourself — it’s best done with the help of a like-minded healthcare practitioner and natural, healthful everyday choices.

Your pet’s needs are very individual, so finding a good veterinarian is an important step. In addition to a full physical every year (more often for younger pets or those with special needs), you’ll want to talk with the vet about vaccinations and other preventative measures, food and supplement choices and grooming. You may also want to explore homeopathy, herbal remedies, and other holistic care options.

A Healthy New Year: Homeopathy for Colds, Flu and Beyond

Friday, 11 February 2011 16:05

By Carrie Stearns, PDHom.

boironJanuary is here... the holiday time is over, and the winter stillness has a chance to reach us. There is something about a new year that holds a sense of possibility. More than any other time of year, we pause. In our culture of overdoing, this pause can be very significant. It can be a time of small new beginnings or a moment when the seed of something bigger takes hold. Often it is a time when we turn our attention to something about our health. Maybe we simply see that making a promise to exercise regularly needs to be part of our new year or perhaps something more challenging needs our attention. Health can always be a place to strive toward. Illness, whether it be a winter cold or something more chronic and troublesome, offers an opportunity to pay attention and look at how we live our lives in a new way. Homeopathy is a healing modality that can treat acute illnesses like colds and flu and help us to address the far deeper issues of where chronic illness begins.

Aromatherapy for Winter Well-Being

Tuesday, 30 November 2010 14:45

By Kash Iraggi-Wiggins

Winter is just around the corner and it is an important time to pay close attention to your health and well-being on both the inside as well as the outside of your body. Using pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils at the first sign of distress will support your body to stay in a healthy state. Essential oils penetrate the body through the nose and skin, with the olfactory glands being the most direct route.

Incorporating essential oils into your daily routine will help keep your immune system stronger, shorten your recovery time from illness and uplift your spirits when the winter weather keeps you inside a bit more than you would like. Pure therapeutic essential oils have the ability to work with the body on a spiritual, mental and physical plane to bring the body to a place of balance and harmony.
