HOMEOPATHY: Working For People And Pets Without Side Effects
Homeopathy is a system of medicine that utilizes micro-doses of natural substances -- herbs, bark, seeds, berries, flowers, minerals and animal matter. Unlike powerful pharmaceutical drugs, homeopathic remedies do not create side-effects. The use of conventional drugs and preparations often means the risk of side effects. In some cases, the "cure" is worse than the problem.
For example, the use of flea collars, flea dips, mange and worming treatments expose animals to dangerous insecticides and poisons which can cause serious illness.
With natural homeopathic medicines there's no need for worry. They provide effective relief from suffering without any side effects. They heal without harming.
Homeopathy has long been popular in Europe and Asia. In France, a hotbed of homeopathy, some 1,000 veterinarians employ this form of medicine exclusively in the treatment of both large and small animals. In the U.S., the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association includes about 250 veterinarians who use homeopathics to varying degrees in their treatment programs.
Although the principles of homeopathy date back to the great Greek physician Hippocrates, and before him to the ancient Hindus, modern homeopathy was founded in 1810 by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann. The system is based on a concept called the law of similars in which remedies containing minute amounts of natural substances stimulate the body's own defenses against specific symptoms and imbalances. These substances, if they were given in large doses to healthy individuals or animals, would produce those same symptoms.
The ingredients in homeopathic medicines are so diluted that they carry virtually no trace of the original substance. For this reason they cause no side effects. And for this reason, too, medical authorities question their effectiveness.
The healing power of homeopathy does not come directly from the substances themselves, but rather from the energy released from them during a special refining process of shaking and dilution.
Homeopathy is gaining most adherents among Americans seeking natural and effective alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs. Approximately 2.5 million individuals, or one percent of the population, are now using homeopathic remedies, according to the New England Journal of Medicine. The same attraction for natural, safe medicines has turned many individuals on to homeopathics for the health problems of their pets.
The Dr. Goodpet Story
There's a real health epidemic affecting our pets. Too many dogs and cats get sick and die before their time. That's what health writer Martin Zucker learned from veterinarians and breeders while researching five different books on pet health.
In 1984 Zucker teamed up with Louis Gottlieb, a businessman with many years of experience in the pet industry, to create Dr. Goodpet Laboratories, a part of their family-owned and operated company Very Healthy Enterprises, Inc.. Starting with a single product in 1984, the company has grown steadily and now sells over 30 products, with new items being added all the time to thousands of customers nationwide, including veterinarians, breeders, groomers, trainers, pet owners and leading pet and health food chains.
Dr. Goodpet's homeopathic remedies have the distinction of being the first in the U.S. made exclusively for pets. Based on advanced European combinations used for many years, these remedies help relieve such problems as itching, flea-bite allergies, scratching, skin conditions, motion sickness, hyperactivity, diarrhea, foul breath, ear infections, pain and stiffness from arthritis, and minor eye irritations.
Dr. Goodpet vitamin and trace mineral supplements feature unique age-specific vitamin and trace mineral formulas for young, adult and senior animals, and for pregnant and lactating females. These products help boost resistance against illness and allergies, develop healthier skin, and compensate for nutritional deficiencies in less-than-perfect commercial pet food.
