Vibrant Health for our Dogs

Recently I was thinking back into my “why” for beginning this journey into natural health – for animals and us. Of course as I’ve shared so many times it began with my amazing dog Shadrach. He helped me learn for his sake. I had to learn to let go of the fear of change that was locking us into a cycle of illness and also frustration with it all. My desire was and is VIBRANT health for my dogs! The interesting thing is that my journey began in earnest because of my deep desire to help Shadrach. In the process of that I...

Understanding Wellness

Understanding Wellness

“If you look at healthcare today, it’s all about disease. It’s not about understanding wellness at all.” ~Leroy Hood In a recent short article I wrote I was focusing on the difference of the common “health” mindset in our country (possibly the world at this point). I put quotation marks around the word “health” because we have somehow gotten it all skewed to be synonymous with the word “disease” rather than wellness. As I was watching someone I consider a “mentor” on...

Kibble IS the Worst No Matter the Label

Kibble IS the Worst No Matter the Label

We all know we shouldn’t eat processed junk food, but we all do it. I eat very little in the way of processed food because in my home we prefer to adhere to God’s laws of health and eat as fresh, organic and natural foods as possible. We do the same for our dogs as for us. We did an Animal Talk Naturally show on February 19, 2014 entitled, “Worst Dog Foods?” (see the audio attached to this post). It was titled with irony of course because to us, ALL kibble is the worst! God originally placed us AND the animals in a...

Nutrition for our CARNIVORE companions

Nutrition for our CARNIVORE companions

Rather than write a very long post, I have two audio-videos here from our two latest podcasts on Animal Talk Naturally…yes videos of each edited show with just a photo. This ongoing push to force our carnivore companions to become something they are not isn’t something that we can just sit by and not say a word about. It is so wrong on so many levels. Seems to be a pervasive thing in this country too. Carnivore Companions: Conscious Feeding, Pt1 Carnivore Companions: Conscious Feeding, Pt2 Until next time… Have a...

Trust is the Cornerstone of the Laws of Health

Trust is the Cornerstone of the Laws of Health

Trust. We all want it. We all desire to be trustworthy. It’s not by accident this is probably the most critical part of all the laws of health. All the previous laws of health: nutrition, exercise, pure water, sunshine, moderation, fresh air, and rest hinge upon this one thing: trust. ALL of the components of maintaining and promoting health and wellness in our dogs build upon and depend upon all the others and that requires trusting them regardless of what things appear to be like on the surface. “Trust is the glue of life....

Beginnings

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson We are on the cusp of yet another new year. When one ends, another begins. I’m not sure why everyone thinks that a new one will be without challenges or adversity – it is those very things that grows us in character. In fact, it was with adversity I entered into my own Young Living Story… It all began with an absolutely amazing Neapolitan Mastiff named Shadrach. He came to me out of immense adversity. From the tragic and...

A Neo Mastiff Christmas Message

A Neo Mastiff Christmas Message

I want to wish you all a very blessed and joyous Christmas weekend AND to share a brief bit about my own Young Living Story – it really is my and my dogs health and wellness story in short. This is the message I shared with my Young Living team today, but I am also SO grateful to those who have read this blog for years when Shadrach was the one writing it. My story all started with an absolutely amazing (if I must say so myself) Neapolitan Mastiff named Shadrach. If it weren’t for him, I’d not have been searching for a more...

Fake-grances Affecting Air Quality

Fake-grances Affecting Air Quality

In my previous post on water I stated that there are two things we can only live for a very short time without and water is one of them. The second thing is air – and we can only live at the most a few MINUTES without that! AND just like water, not all air these days is created equal – wait what? Yes, thanks to the added chemicals being put into it – yes you heard me correctly. “If we pollute the air, water and soil that keep us alive and well, and destroy the biodiversity that allows natural systems to function, no...

Natural Rearing Revives Older Dogs

Natural Rearing Revives Older Dogs

This is my sweet Schatzie girl…that isn’t a stain on my pants, it’s her drool and licking stain lol. She always licks and drools on my pants when she has her head in my lap – silly girl. She is now into her 11th year. She is my steadfast daily running partner – my best running partner EVER. Schatzie had a rough 7 years before coming to us, but she is truly thriving now after all she has been through. She was conventionally raised and often left to her own devices as she lived outdoors. She is very resourceful as...

From Conventional to Naturally Reared Neo Mastiff

From Conventional to Naturally Reared Neo Mastiff

Wow 7 years ago today this photo was taken of me and Shadrach! What an amazing dog he was!! In this photo he was 9 years old. He was wholly naturally reared from the age of 4 until he passed away naturally here at home at 4 months shy of 12 years old – in spite of his abusive, neglected start prior to coming to us and the conventional rearing until age 4! The power of a whole health approach was so evident in him!! Often those conventionally reared of his breed live to about 8 years of age with quality of life waning rapidly each year....
