THERAPIES

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy is an effective system of healthcare that aims to treat the individual patient, assisting the natural tendency of the body to heal itself and so promote well-being.

 

It seeks to match the symptoms of the disease with the known symptoms produced by a wide range of usually natural substances. It is thought to work by stimulating the patient’s immune system and raising the overall level of health, enabling the patient to re-establish health and prevent disease.

THE CONSULTATION

At the first consultation I will take a detailed history of the patient, including details of the animal’s health and character, its likes and dislikes, its diet and routine. This appointment will usually last an hour.

 

Homeopathy is an energy medicine that stimulates the body’s own healing powers. Homeopathy for animals is especially useful in the treatment and control of chronic internal conditions such as hepatitis, liver cancer, diarrhoea, cystitis, nephritis, food allergies, asthma, bronchitis and heart problems. It works especially well for old dogs with chronic arthritis or chronic skin problems, as well as mental and emotional problems such as aggression, anxiety and depression.

ACUPUNCTURE

Originating in China, it is a technique of insertion and manipulation of needles into special locations on the body. It is used to alleviate pain and for therapeutic purposes. It can be used to treat a wide variety of illnesses, including arthritis, back and hip pain, muscle pain, epilepsy, renal failure, gastrointestinal diseases, incontinence, chronic skin conditions and problems of the immune system.

 

Birgit also uses traditional chinese acupuncture as well as the western approach. Most recently Horses have been benefiting tremendously from classical chinese acupuncture for a wide range of diseases.

Over the last decade there has been a marked increase in the incidence of cancer in animals. It is estimated that one in four dogs develop neoplasia in their life. Birgit uses homeopathy, Mistletoe and other cancer treatments in her work with cancer patients.

 

Mistletoe improves and normalises immune functions and has a tumour inhibiting effect. Mast cell tumours and soft tissue sarcoma and carcinoma are responding very well to this.

 

There is a noticeably improved quality of life in almost all patients treated with this approach. Appetite, weight and vitality can all be improved. Almost 90% of cases who are treated with Mistletoe in our practice, live an average of eight months longer than the longest prediction by their vet.

 

Just now, we are treating 24 cancer patients all who were given a prognosis of six weeks. Some of these prognoses were given three years ago.
