Doctors are caught between a rock and a hard place…

Why a veterinary and human healthcare reform is needed

If you have been in our community for some time, you most likely know about my efforts to provide you with knowledge about natural disease prevention.

 Good health is like the spring that feeds the river of a good and fun life.

What is your picture of a good life? What are your dreams? What makes your heart sing?

To me, a good life is to be able to care well for those I love, to have a lifes purpose and to have enough time to spend with my family and friends. In my world, a good life is taking Skai to Europe and showing him the places I grew up or making the wild dream of taking him to Hawaii real.

Skai is very lucky but making his life good is not a frivolous indulgence. Caring for him helps me to make a clear statement that every two or four legged soul deserves good food, safety, protection and love.

It is sometimes depressing that there are so many helpless animals and children who suffer unnecessarily. They are hungry, mistreated or suffer from the consequences of lack of food, resources or proper medical knowledge.

In my eyes, Skai represents a symbol of change and hope for a better world.

We have a lot to learn from our animal friends, because they have no problem living in harmony with nature and their history is not lined with war, greed and destruction.

People often complain about the evil corporations as the symbol of greed and destruction of our planet. However, we need to be reminded that these companies would not exist if we, as a collective, didn’t use their products, for example drugs.

This is not to say that drugs are not useful especially in an emergency or a life threatening situation. However, 90% of healthcare problems can be solved better without the use of toxic drugs.

We all should do more and speak louder to our governments to make sure that doctors, who are often caught between a rock and a hard place, have access to knowledge about natural principles of healing.

In the ideal world, doctors should not need to be afraid of being ostracized, marginalized and even legally prosecuted, when they use natural treatments in place of toxic and often damaging drugs. The continuous lobbying of drug companies to push natural products out of the marketplace under the cover to make us safe is ridiculous because pharmaceutical drugs kill more people than any natural treatment ever will.  

Many people tell me that they have been feeling down about the state of the world or the health of their loved ones; not knowing what to do.

I feel that the “feeling down” is just a wake up call from the Universe to start searching for a solution. Sometimes things have to get bad before they get better. The good news is that most of the current health issues can be easily solved by using natural methods before they get serious.

Every week, I read about some of your concerns about the state of veterinary care or the health problems your animal friends have been faced with.

While I will always do my best to be there for you no matter what the health problem is, I hope you will take the opportunity to learn how to prevent these in the future by attending my webinars.

You can also make a huge difference in the lives of others by telling them that there is a natural choice.
