Years ago I created a free wordpress site which acted like a diary I was keeping on the senior dogs we were fostering. That information has been transferred over to this site. If it helps you, I am grateful for that!
My husband and I worked with two rescue groups in the Houston area. We’re taking a break currently. We worked with senior health-challenged dogs This portion of the web site (ReikiSounds.net) serves as a diary of those times. It is not meant to prescribe, nor advise. It’s just my diary. I have a certification in veterinary homeopathy and gemmotherapy which I use for my own pets and fosters. I’m also an advanced Reiki practitioner. I use Reiki on myself, my own pets, my friends and their pets.
A major event (and a few minor ones) occurred with the use of cell salts on an older Afghan with terrible ear infections. Her name was Augusta.
This Blog is also here to pass on information about excellent sources of holistic care for animals.
Cell salts, sometimes known as tissue salts, were developed by Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler 1821 – 1889. They consist of the very basic minerals that our cells depend on for balance.
My go-to book on the subject is Homeopathic Cell Salt Remedies by Lennon and Rolfe. You can find it at many sources. I have a hard copy and also a Kindle version. Here is the Amazon link.
Links to cell salts papers and information.
Hylands Brand Cell Salts, available at most health food stores.
I enjoy doing business with the Celletech Company, located in Wisconsin. They provide the remedies in amber glass bottles, which you can either recycle or use for something else when done. They offer a huge selection of homeopathic remedies. The link provided takes to you the cell salts information page.
1-800 Homeopathy has a quick chart HERE on cell salts.
Sue Young Histories has a biography of Dr. Schuessler HERE
Gemmotherapy is helpful in getting rid of toxins. It is the use of young shoots, stems and buds of plants. The gemmos that I use are from Gemmos USA
Dr. Blake’s web site is The Pet Whisperer. His books (listed on his website) and his philosophy are superb. He has had excellent results using gemmotherapy.
Gemmotherapy, Cell Salts and Homeopathy are closely related. Please know that the use of essential oils while using homeopathy can neutralize your efforts, so take care when using multiple modalities.
These ideas are not meant to be a substitute for veterinary care. Please make an appointment with your veterinarian when your pet is ill or when you sense something is just not right. If your pet has a chronic ailment, you may do well to research some of the ideas in this blog for your pet’s health as an addition to good veterinary care.
I’m a professional harpist and also own a harp print music specialty store, called “Melody’s Traditional Music”. It is named after a beloved Afghan Hound named Melody (1987 – 1998). We also publish harp music I earned my certificate in veterinary homeopathy from the British Institute of Homeopathy (August 2008). My experience with cell salts is that they are excellent for very depleted dogs. Since we rescue, very unfortunately we see this a lot. Often in these cases, the Dog must be built up from the very core of their physical, emotional and spiritual Being. Cell salts help with this. One of our rescues, Augusta, was one such case. Kidney disease, HW positive, severe and resistant ear infections, maggots under her matted fur, bad teeth, and more from being left out in the Texas heat for 5 months with little food or water. Cell salts helped her tremendously. I have also used cell salts on our cat’s abscesses, and after TPLO surgery on Mendelssohn, a cow dog mix who surprisingly, after years of good health, tore up his knee while simply running in the back yard. I am a proponent of cooked or raw food, and also use high quality kibble. I am not in a position at this time to do any consultations, as I have a regular job. You are welcome to ask me questions though!
