Today’s Remedies

I have incorporated dozens of natural approaches throughout the last year since Phoenix was diagnosed with the splenic hemangioma.  Below is a list of things we’ve tried.  Over time I hope to write about how we’ve used each one – for what purpose, in what form, approximate dosage, etc.   The list is extensive and I do not wish to scare anyone wanting to treat themselves, or their pets in a holistic manner.  It doesn’t have to be long and complicated.  For me it is fun to do the research with it falling naturally into my grid work as a healer.  I believe though that healing can take place with the simplest of gestures and that it is as much to do with the relationship and draw one might have to each approach or remedy as it is knowing  the “right” one to use based strictly on facts.

Much of what is listed I also use myself so it makes it easier!

If you have any questions, or wish to share your experiences with these or other natural allies for your health, please leave a comment below.  Thank you!
