Which Symptoms Should I Monitor After Giving The Homeopathic Remedy?

 

To help me efficiently evaluate the prescription your pet has received, please monitor the following symptoms. Any or all of them may apply to your pet. Please keep all of the details in your journal, and send me a short update 24 hours before our appointment.

This list of potential symptoms was requested by some clients to help them keep track of their pet’s progress. There are other practice handouts to explain the updating process in more detail.

Please always list % improvement, worsening or no change of these symptoms in your update. In some cases (like itching) it is also helpful to quantitate the symptom on a 1 to 10 scale. 1 being normal. 10 being excessive. For example. If your pet is constantly itching to the point of bleeding and unable to sleep, play, or enjoy any of life’s normal activities, this would be a 10/10 itch level. A normal (occasional) itch level would be 1/10.

How Do I Prepare And Dose the Liquid Homeopathic Remedy That I Got from Dr. Jeff?

Store the bottle at room temperature away from direct sunlight, microwaves, cell phones or strong odors such as cooking smells or perfumes (especially camphor which is in some skin ointments and lotions).

Succus (hit the bottle against the palm of your hand or a book) the bottle each time before administering a dose.  Give it a good hard whack from a distance of 1-2 feet.  This will slightly change the potency of the remedy which helps it to be even more effective.  The number of succussions will usually be between 2-10.  Use 10 succussions for your pet’s first doses.

Take the dropper out of the bottle and replace any liquid that is in it back in the bottle.  Now take a fresh 1 drop (not a full dropper) and add it to 1 cup of distilled, filtered or bottled water (ideally use a glass or ceramic mug).  Stir with a spoon until well mixed.

1 teaspoon (=5 ml=cc) is the average starting dog dose whereas ~1/2 teaspoon (2 cc) is most commonly used initially in cats.  The dose will be individualized for each patient.  Fresh solution and a new glass must be used for each dose.

Give the proper dose using a teaspoon or syringe (whichever is easiest-clean syringe after each dose with boiling water).  If administration is very difficult, try mixing the remedy with a small amount of milk or cream in a bowl.  Do not give any other food or treats for at least 15 minutes before or after the remedy. 

Discard the rest of the water in the cup (Hint: it’s great for your plants!).

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
