It’s a natural step, after you have discovered alternative health care for yourself to start looking at alternative medicine for cats. After all, if you prefer this approach, it’s likely your cat will benefit, too.
Alternative medicine for cats as well as for people is certainly on the increase. Why should this be? Well, some of the main benefits over mainstream health care are:
- there are no side effects
- it works with nature, rather than opposing it
- it is less expensive
- you can learn to use some at home, which empowers you
- your cat will be more receptive to taking the medicine
One of the best alternative medicines for cats, as well as for everyone, in my opinion is homeopathy. Homeopathy is very gentle, but also very deep. You can learn to use some of the common remedies at home. This can not only save you a fortune in veterinarian fees, it is also tremendously empowering.
There is nothing more exciting than your first success. I well remember mine. I was a homeopathic student and had bought a few common remedies and a few books. One day one of my cats stopped eating. I left it a few days, but after the fourth day, I took her to the veterinarian.
She was diagnosed with kidney disease and given a few months, at most to live. I refused the offered medicine. Once home I dived into my books. After assessing all her symptoms that I could, I chose a remedy.
She was happy to take it. But imagine my state of excitement when, within 10 MINUTES, she walked into the kitchen asking for food.
Homeopaths are trained to look beyond the condition. We are trained to match a medicine to the personal symptoms of the condition, rather than the condition itself.
Open your mind to the infinite possibilities of health care and the subtle ways of perceiving what symptoms can lead you to healing. Homeopathy and a species-specific diet are truly the best alternative medicine for cats, or anyone.
