One of the common issues I treat in my practice is musculoskeletal problems. These can range from mild limping, to arthritis, to full blown paralysis. These problems can be caused by injuries, lack of proper exercise, and a deficiency in joint cartilage, but are often just the result of age...

Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Everyone is concerned about their pets comfort. In this article, Dr Ihor Basko discusses holistic ways to treat pain without having to worry about the side effects of pharmaceuticals.

Greetings everyone!

Lately it seems that dog owners everywhere have a ton of healthy, natural, and organic commercial food options for their pets. With such a huge increase in the availability of pre-made “healthy” food for pets, you may be thinking that there’s no need for fresh home-cooked and home-prepared meals anymore. I don’t necessarily believe that to be the case though...

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Dr. B shares an enthusiasm for healthy food with his patients at every visit. Author of Fresh Food Ancient Wisdom, Dr. B approaches all patients from a holistic perspective with healthy meals leading the treatment plan.

Reiki is energy; Reiki is energy healing. A distance Reiki treatment works like radio waves. Distance healing is a process of using universal energy for healing living beings, remotely. The healer acts as a conduit for the flow of energy and transmits this energy over any distance. Since there is no time or space in the energy realm, distant healing can operate without regard to limitation of space...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Reiki is powerful medicine - not only can it cure long-distance, but on "furkids" as well as humans, birds and even elephants!

Hygiene should encompass any and all external influences that may negatively impact the health of the patient...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Dr Dupree is a great veterinarian, homeopath, teacher and mentor. In this article, he shares how crucial it is we pet parents monitor everything that is done to and is put in or on our four-legged family - not just domesticated pets, but our farm animal family, too. Vigilance about our own health requires vigilance about our pets' health and the health of our food supply, as they are all inter-related.

The last 10 years has seen a growing awareness of the need for Core Strengthening programs for humans. Prior focus has been on cardio and large muscles groups with little thought to the core.  The core of the body is the originating center of all muscle movements.

Editor's Note from Michael Salewski: Core strength is the foundation for human athletic performance and is too often overlooked in our canine athletes. This article provides a good introduction as to why, if we are going to participate in sport with our dogs, proper conditioning is important.

Children are truly organic mourners. They instinctively know how to deal with loss and will organically move themselves into this natural state when faced with a loss...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Children can teach us so much about life, if we only slow down to listen and learn. Here is how we can share and give tribute to a beloved pet who has passed; lesson learned from children.

Meet Sam the cat. Sam is 21 years old and became blind six months ago. Up until then, Sam was a cat who roamed the neighborhood during the day and slept indoors at night. He had his routine, made his rounds and just enjoyed being a cat... 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Life lessons can be learned anywhere - my friend Jenn is a GREAT business coach and has learned business lessons from an amazing blind cat who didn't let like slow him down. Let's share with Sam and Jenn and all of our lives will grow!

We use the term “Cat Scratch Reconditioning” to explain the process of redirecting natural, healthy cat scratch practice; from “claws off” scratch surfaces to “claws on” designated scratch surfaces within a shared home environment, with the use of pawsitive reward and reinforcement through repetition...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: Teamwork with a cat - almost sounds like an oxymoron - but that's what it takes to teach kitties where to scratch. With dedication and patience, it can be done, working together. Cats demand respect, not dominance.


Animals & Pets

The theme for this issue revolves around relaxation and enjoyment as a way of renewing ourselves. Who among us hasn’t, as a child, enjoyed laying in the cool grass on a summer’s afternoon soaking up the sun’s rays? How about dangling our feet in the cool water of a lake, a stream, or even a swimming pool? Do you remember lying out under the stars trying to find pictures of animals in people?...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: When I was a kid, my favorite thing was to walk with my dog after school. We would sing songs and play in the grass. What lessons do we learn from our pets?

The plight of feral cats has received some much needed publicity recently when the Loews Hotel group reversed a longstanding policy on providing a safe harbor for feral cats at two of their Orlando properties. The story gained national attention after it unleashed a firestorm among animal lovers in general and cat bloggers in particular...


Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: The issue of how to deal with feral cats raises a lot of controversy. Ingrid's perspective is a win-win; return feral cats to their environment but without their breeding abilities.

Grief – what we feel on the inside.

Mourning – the public showing of grief.  Grief gone public.  What people see when the bereaved is crying, is angry or yelling; a physical showing of hurt in a variety of other ways with the loss of a precious love...


Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: To mourn properly means to understand mourning. This is the first step on the grieving journey.

Animal Holistic Health & Relationships

by Linda Webber

As is the case with all animals, their past experiences have helped to shape their personality and behaviour. Most animals have been traumatised in some way. Separation anxiety, shock, physical pain, are all common life experiences. Many owners are unaware of these aspects of their animal’s history, as they predominantly focus on its physical condition...
