Chinese New Year is coming up on January 31, and we will enter the Year of the Wood Horse! If you’ve ever wondered which of the twelve animals you match with, I decided to enlighten you on the subject...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Chinese New Year, which ushers in the Year of the Wooden Horse, occurs at the end of January. Compared to the Western calendar, it is the year 4712. For about 5000 years, the Chinese philosophers have observed energy in the ebb and flow of nature. Over time, they witnessed patterns in life, often allegorically attributing these recurring themes to members of the animal kingdom.

There are many, many possible causes for this. So, let me go through a few of the most possible. First, how long has it been? If everything else seems to be “normal” with your pet, it’s okay to go up to 24 hours without eating. It’s possible he has the flu.
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: What seems like a fundamental question may not really be. Often, pet owners don't know when they should take action and seek medical care and when it's okay to wait. Since pets don't talk to explain what they are feeling, we humans need some other surrogate measures to know how to proceed.

It is the Law of Similars which most directly separates Homeopathy from conventional or allopathic medicine. The second law furthers this separation by demanding the medicines of Homeopathy be tested to the fullest so that we can adhere to the Law of Similars. This second law states that all medicines used by the Homeopath must be proved.
Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: It is fascinating how little drug knowledge is needed before a pharmaceutical drug is allowed on the market as compared to the level of knowledge regarding for homeopathic remedies. 200 pages of symptoms vs a 4 page tri-fold. 200 pages of information is a bit more detailed.

Palm oil is used on a wide variety of products, including foods. One of these companies is Kellogg's, maker of a wide variety of food products and best known for its cereals. While Kellogg's touts its environmentally-friendly practices, its actual practices are far from being so...
Editor's Note from Jean-Pierre Ruiz: The extensive use of palm oil is proving to be devastating to the environment, including many animal species now nearing extinctions. This article provides background information and a link to take action.

What goes around, comes around, according to one old bromide. In the early days of hypnosis, when Mesmer and Charcot were first introducing this modality in 18th century Europe, the phenomenon was often referred to as "animal magnetism."...

The day before Thanksgiving, 2010. A young woman I’ll call Anna winds down the CAS driveway and pulls up to the main barn. Animal Care Director Abbie Rogers and I go out to meet her; we’ve been expecting her and her passenger.
In a crate in the back of her hatchback, a large white turkey...
Editor's Note: Kathy Stevens, Founder and Director of Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, NY, and I am blessed to say, my friend, offers a different perspective of our all too often tainted view of farm animals, and implores us, by introducing the voice and soul of her friend Henrietta, to chose a compassionate cuisine this holiday season - and everyday thereafter.

ATH Co-Editor of Organic Living
The puppy dropped onto my doorstep. Literally. One morning a spotted, soft, tiny batch of pups were born behind the bushes near my front door in front of my home. The mother lived on our property; I didn't even know she was pregnant...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: It is natural to think we want to choose organic for our pets. Yet, it can be tricky tale. A gift of puppies born on the stoop of my home opened up a barrel of thoughts of how, when, and why to go organic with our four-footed friends.
