Better Communications

Saturday, July 9th, 2022

Animals communicate with each other and us through a range of wondrous mechanisms of which many of us are aware. I have written about these abilities in other blogs.

What we may not realise however is that the entire natural world we inhabit and mostly take for granted is also communicating with all living things on Earth through the fungal hyphal network that permeates the subsurface of the entire rock on which we live. The fungal communication highway enables our planet to stay healthy and helps it to repair.

  This system is under constant threat by the damage we create. Our flagrant lack of acknowledgment of the assistance nature is providing combined with the ongoing damage we inflict as pollution and destruction is making us sicker with each passing week because we are a part of this natural world and it is getting harder to hold it in health.

Natural and intuitive mechanisms of communication are being actively obfuscated to our detriment by a bombardment of unnatural origin.

The natural biological network of living things on Earth monitors and helps the health of the planet in ways we are yet to discover through a deeper appreciation of biorhythm and quantum. In contrast, human endeavour is currently destroying or compromising it with emf and wifi with frequencies that are above our biological capacity to tolerate and endure.

Everybody is well aware of the technological advancements in telecommunications that have connected nations and dare I say, assaulted our senses for two decades or more but very few apart from indigenous and natural cultures appreciate that we have had a miraculous, naturally occurring global network long before we launched the satellites.

 Of course, as humans, we have limited access to the benefits of this fungal exchange in most ways except as food because we have become disconnected from them and most other plant life at a fundamental subconscious level. Our animal companions in contrast are still aware that this information exchange exists and are still in tune with it despite their removal from the wild. They tune in to the rhythm of Mother Nature and they try to filter and block the barrage of confusion from the artificial world.

 As our helpmates they are trying to impart these messages and warnings to us through their behaviour and other symptoms if we learn how to interpret them.

Since the dawn of time our animals have been evolving alongside us to provide comfort, assistance, protection and as pets, unconditional love and joy. On the whole we are getting better at listening to and appreciating their efforts but the plants and soil are being seriously undervalued for the life affirming qualities they supply. 




It is not a coincidence that the minerals themselves used for technology come from the natural world such is the beneficence of Mother Nature’s offerings but even these gifts are being superceded by the arrogance of science and artificial substances that have no place in natural systems.

It is perhaps not a coincidence also that the fungi are decomposers and utilise various substrates as energy to breakdown organic material and form new soil and produce fruit.





In a breakdown of the world currently as we know it this parallel does not escape notice but I wonder what may be the value of the ‘fruit’ these technologies produce.

On the one hand we have nature battling to keep us well and on the other we have a burgeoning overreliance on artificial intelligence denying its role in making us sick; plant, animal and human alike. As mentioned, the animals are aware of this, we largely are not.

The numbers of enquiries I have had from concerned animal owners over these past months in particular, regarding the side effects of these more recent abuses and interferences to health have been overwhelming even though many of them are yet to realise why their animals’ health is deranged.

Many of us have noticed the increase in mushroom and fungus, yeast and mould growth over recent months. This is natures attempt to restore an imbalance created by these interferences and the ensuing toxic overload or dysbiosis.  Plants will monitor and respond to the needs of the life forms on Earth by growing what is needed in areas it is needed. Fungi and algae and moulds restore ecological balance to soil and as previously mentioned, create the communication network for the natural world to remain vigilant and responsive to threats of all kinds. All things need rainwater to grow and water itself is also a guardian of health for all living things. In this way the soil and plants are a macroscopic view of our own inner workings through our intestinal biome which, on a more local level, also breaks down waste material and communicates with our whole body.

On this much smaller scale, the candida and malasezzia yeasts that plaque human and animal health as recurrent bouts of thrush, otitis, itchy feet and other symptoms are often caused both by a disturbance to immune function plus the presence of mercury and other toxic substances in or surrounding the body in much the same way that oil spills and industrial waste damage soil and water habitats.  Once we acknowledge that these fungal blooms are natures attempt to restore health by removing dangerous substances we can begin to appreciate what we have available to help us at a naturopathic level….in these examples specifically chlorella, amongst other fungal immune balancing homeopathic or herbal medicines plus good water to drink in larger quantities than most of us realise is necessary.

Since my phosphorus blog I have been pondering why this picture is currently so prevalent. Whilst I still hold to my ‘spike’ theory  I am coming to understand more and more that it is bigger than that.  The following discovery also goes some way to explaining my unsettlement given there appears that there is little protection afforded against energetic attack other than an even deeper faith that humanity will prevail and start returning goodwill and authority to Mother Nature and to the natural world.

The picture of Phosphorus is radiation damage…….adding hair loss and immune compromise to the previous portrait, it is little wonder we are all finding it difficult to stay well.

There have always been those amongst us who can hear these messages and a larger group of people that find it hard to filter them into meaningful or helpful information without the medical training that most of those with it have under-utilised. This awareness is also the clairvoyance (clear seeing) of Phosphorus but I suspect the brain fog many are experiencing is electrical or chemical disturbance to microcirculation from unnatural sources.

The obfuscation of the truths behind our most recent global health crisis must surely come to light over time. Time to adjust to the reality of our predicament being born of our ignorance and naivety. Time to ponder the over reliance we place on our leaders to be people of integrity and wisdom. Time to recover from the fact that, on large, they are neither.

Coughing, loss of voice, tickly chest is all loss of ability to speak out. The inner scream that many do not recognise as such. An inability to get things off your chest…to communicate….to form community. At a subconscious level we know this is true but it must be brought to the surface before we can acknowledge it and accept a remedy. Even our dogs have had more ‘kennel cough’ in recent months such is their identification with us.

Still in the early days of this new millennium with the attendant challenges and excitement it inevitably brings, we, as a species have taken the world hostage. Humankind is incredibly young and careless; oblivious to the wonderful legacy we could relish if we did not continue to ignore the warnings of our short, rough history and heed the compassion and wisdom of the Mother Earth.

We are in a war on natural health and on the natural world in all terms and unless and until we find our collective voice and amend our trajectory, we may be headed for further or greater disasters than we have hitherto seen. To stay positive is difficult but of paramount importance.

Our animals are aware of this and doing their best to help. They inspire us and make us laugh to generate the best medicine of all.

Whilst our fellow animals do not pray and meditate, they rely on the fact that we must….even if only to keep us centred in our heart and connected to our Source so that we will know and act better.



We must grow into the fulfilment of our promise.

How to improve your pet’s diet

Saturday, March 5th, 2022

People often ask how they can improve the quality of their pets’ diet whilst enjoying the convenience of commercially prepared diets. This blog is to encourage and support those looking for a starting point for ideas to make the daily practice of feeding your pets a more satisfying task if you are unable to adopt the optimum regimen for any reason.

Without having to understand complex terminology and physiology I encourage all my clients to trust their instincts when providing food to their pets and also to suggest that even the simplest of additions of occasional real foods can greatly enhance the quality of diets and provide some health benefit. It is much easier to get animals to eat real foods if you start them young of course so be patient with older pets and start with items you already have at home so as not to waste precious time, money or food.

Food is medicine and it is not complicated.

Many of us get worried about the properly balanced diet without realising that most things being sold to us with this claim are really not well balanced at all but generally sufficient to keep animals alive but not to thrive.

 I want all animals to eat better so here are some simple tips.

If you AVOID cooked bones, cooked fat, onions, sugar and chocolate you can feed your cat or dog any food that you have left over ….even if it is cooked.

This is how these animals co-existed with us for centuries…..of course raw foods are better for them but our leftovers are often better than anything in a package or a tin. You can get around this by keeping the off cut trimmings from any meat you are preparing and give them that before you cook your dinner/BBQ.  Raw fat is best for them never cooked fats if you can avoid that. There are many people scared of pancreatitis reoccurrences in dogs but do not be worried about raw fat….it is an essential component of the dog/cat diet.

Fat is the only essentially raw ingredient that cannot be compromised and if you are not using it then you need to have a carbohydrate substitute for growing/active/younger dogs.

Of course, ALL commercial pet foods, kibbles, tins have carbohydrate so you never need to add any carbohydrate even though the odd piece of vegemite toast, ice cream  or pizza crust can be overlooked now and then.

There is an alarming and ridiculously lengthy list of things that are apparently not safe to feed cats and dogs but in my professional opinion most of these result from chemical adulterations with sprays and chemicals (that are making us all sick!).

The latest in a long list are grapes/raisins and whilst the mechanism of renal failure in dogs with these fruits is still unidentified, I posit that organic/chemical free fruits are all safe. You can’t be sure how clean they are unless you grow your own or get certified organic produce which can ironically be cheaper these days owing to supply/transport issues.


If in doubt..leave it out.


Personally, I don’t recommend the nightshades but there is no reason dogs and cats should not eat tomato, potato and eggplant if they are inclined. In fact the lycopene in tomato is a very good eye nutrient and tinned mackerel in tomato sauce is a good food for dogs for cataract prevention/treatment and cats as an occasional treat.

If the berries from the ubiquitous potato bush are very ripe and fall off into your hand they are an inexpensive and good option for a host of beneficial nutrients.  I was naturally wary of these black berries as they do resemble the deadly nightshades and we must sure to differentiate them. Deadly nightshade is not grown in Australian gardens which is a huge relief and for those unsure of the difference there is a nice explanation here.   I also recommend cooking potato/sweet potato to help make it more digestible.


The list of what you can add to your pets regular food whether you choose kibble or any other base is quite extensive and will be listed here for anyone looking to improve health in their pets. Choose anything from any category and I will also indicate for specific problems what may be best.


I cannot overemphasise the importance of a healthy gut biome so occasional additions of anything from the bottom of this list will be highly recommended in all dog and cat diets.

They only need very small amounts infrequently but if they ask for more, give extra.

You do not ever need to supplement cats and dogs with carbohydrates, cooked fats or sugar. In fact these things will cause digestive upsets. Any fruit/vege that you eat yourself is fine to give them as treats or supplements.

Pulp from your own juices or smoothies is an excellent addition to their food bowl with or without yoghurt (plain). They can also be frozen as ice treats in hot weather.


In order of quantity required the foods are listed here for both cats and dogs alike. For the purposes of augmenting an existing base diet you may already have for your pet simply pick an item from this long list and offer it to the animal. I do think it is best to keep raw items separate from cooked ones so feed them in separate meals whenever possible to minimise digestive workload.


Raw meaty appropriate bones (no marrow or large leg bones) and bone must be less than 20% of the portion (10-20%)……….’trophy chew’ raw knuckle bones are toys and not food but excellent distractions for teething puppies. Large/adult dogs do well with MEATY portions with some bone from the body of the prey, necks, wings, ribs, brisket for dental hygiene and brain health.

Extra MEAT of any kind including duck/chicken feet, fat, gristle etc. Not bacon/ham/processed meats as they are not raw and also contain too many additives…tiny bits will not hurt usually but will aggravate sensitive gut/skin.


OFFAL….kidney/liver/heart…for minerals and essential fatty acids.. very small portions or air/freeze dried good.


If you are feeding any commercial diet (cooked or raw) then all of the things above are already provided in some form however the following ingredients are hardly ever provided in sufficient amounts to be of any help even when they are advertised as ingredients in premium or holistic pet kibble. Bones cannot ever be given unless they are raw so other calcium sources are used in these packaged foods to compensate.


Raw vegetable pulp, vitamised greens or other fruits/vege…..especially important for phytochemicals and antioxidants in any animal with inflammation….dermatitis/skin problems, gastritis/colitis/gut problems, cancer or arthritis…all need antioxidants.

Old dogs especially need more veg material and cancer patients do well with berries.

Tomato for eye health, beetroot for kidney/bladder problems, turmeric for any inflammation, quercetin in dark berries and apples because onion is problematic /toxic in dogs.

Garlic is good. Leafy Greens blended as a green smoothie does wonders for any dog/cat.

Cats are more fussy but will take some of these things especially cooked pumpkin.

Cooked vege is also better than none at all but dogs and cats do not need grains or rice unless they have extra energy demands or are not getting enough raw fat in their diet ie; any young to mid aged animal that eats cooked diets will probably need some carbs unless you are giving raw meaty bones treats quite often.

Culinary herbs and edible weeds like nettles/dandelion are also excellent nutrient boosts to put into vitamised greens or food bowls…..dogs and cats will graze these things themselves too.

You can make these green smoothies into ice blocks and add to meals every now and then or as treats on hot days.

You can use any frozen vege as training treats for dogs if you start them young enough or they are food motivated and you can feel good about offering healthy inexpensive treats.


Omega 3 fatty acids/Fish Oil…….can be added to any pet food once or twice a week

Fatty fish like mackerel or tinned sardines or your own fish oil capsules are all OK for cats and dogs. Unflavoured fish oil is best 500g for each 5kg. Fish oil capsules can also be used as training treats for dogs.


Prebiotic….the substrate for a healthy gut biome…..supports the probiotics

Prebiotics are soluble fibre like oat bran, chia seed and other seed meals, flax meal, coconut crunch etc   A tablespoon of soaked chia seed once a week or two will keep dogs anal glands healthy by bulking the stool. Many kibble fed dogs have unformed or soft stool so increase these soluble fibres….psyllium husk is also a popular choice and fibrous vege pulp is also good.


Small quantities of sprouted grains or grass, wheatgrass, spirulina, barley grass powders.

If your pet has yeast infections in ears/paws/anus then chlorella tablets or powder should be added 500g for every 5kg for a few weeks as this will clear Malassezia/yeast.


Fermented foods like miso, sauerkraut, kimchi, apple cider vinegar keeps the gut healthy…don’t give large quantities unless they are used to them..a very little is sufficient.


Raw egg with shell, cottage cheese or yoghurt


Digestive enzyme/green tripe can protect from pancreatitis


Cats can have anything mentioned above but are notoriously fussy and you may find it is easier to just offer them a raw or very lightly cooked chicken wing, drumette, some offal, tinned or fresh fish , yoghurt, raw egg, cottage cheese as adjunct nutrients to enhance the quality of any other foods they are receiving. They will often drink leftover soups or broths or gravy.. not with cooked fat. Cats can be lactose intolerant so do not give them dairy if it causes loose stool.

Plain yoghurt is usually Ok however and quite beneficial to health and vitality.

As unpleasant as it may sound….fresh caught mice are manna from heaven for the average feline so if you are having mouse problems please do not use poisons but invest in some Australian made humane traps that have quick kill capacity and your cat will be ecstatic if it is not overfed already.

The main thing to remember is that real fresh food, cooked or raw is always better than packaged foods and anything at all that you add however infrequently will improve the quality of the diet of your pet. Get used to giving them small treats of real foods and soon they will be showing improvement in health/coat/eyes/allergies/arthritis symptoms.


If you do decide to pursue raw feeding options fortunately there are now more and more good local suppliers that home deliver ready prepared, taking the hard work out of the task for you….look at Raw and Fresh prepared packs or Barking Good or BM foods to name a few.


Your pets will thank you for any special effort you make by being happier and healthier and this will have a flow on effect to the rest of the family. The main thing to remember is that any addition of real fresh food is helpful to any diet and the exceptions are very few.









Portraits: Phosphorous

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022

Phosphorous as an element is one of the big five in life sciences.

One of the most prevalent elements in all living organism as a basis for RNA, DNA and most biochemical pathways in all living things. Carbon, Phosphorous, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen.

Phosphorous is also a nerve poison, used in chemical warfare and insecticides, fertilizers and food additives.

As a homeopathic medicine it can be used to treat any condition that involves inflammation of the nerves, mucous membranes (gut and lung especially) and for any bleeding problem.

It also creates a feeling of being ungrounded, sensing something is not right, strange fears or excessive nervousness. It is clairvoyant, gentle but can bite if provoked, generally warmer than silica but can be confused with it as they are both leading Tubercular medicines.

Interesting here is that silica is the technocracy that is driving the world presently.

We have phosphorous in the living tissues and silica in the artificial intelligence that drives them as we seem to be overly encouraging in this increasingly disturbing, dystopian world.


Tubercular, trapped, inability to speak up or speak out.


Phosphorous is also right sided in the upper body (head and lungs) and that is the ‘male’ side of defence/attack….Mars is the red planet, God of War and also an ‘Agricultural Guardian’ in Roman mythology. This is ironic given that the injudicious application of superphosphate has largely destroyed our agricultural landscape in Australia.

In the recent lockdown era it is pertinent to advise that the ‘couch potato’, junk food eaters have been overly consuming phosphates in the carbonated drinks and processed snacks that have sustained us in a less than a healthy way. This may contribute to my observations that this health disaster we are calling a pandemic and the phosphorous picture I am seeing in affected animals could be influenced by other phosphate bombardments to the environment. Regardless, my view on spike protein remains, (see previous post) because the phosphates in the foods are bound and need to be consumed whereas something is raising free phosphorous in the environment at present in periodic bursts that is affecting animals.


As a polychrest, phosphorous has its own unique picture like others I have presented.

This means that apart from being used to treat the diseases mentioned above it can also be helpful in certain individuals to help raise their vital response or energy levels.

They are naturally high energy animals and if they are severely lacking or showing ill effects of protracted longterm or debilitating disease we can consider using PhosAc….the acid of phosphorous. PhosAc is helpful for spey incontinence in bitches for this lack of sufficient energy to hold them in health.

The salts are also worthy of mentions for specific affinities, NatPhos for stomach issues, KaliPhos for nervous problems, FerrPhos for blood conditions and CalcPhos for bone and musculoskeletal development.


The true phosphorous animals could be generalised as having red coats/fur but not necessarily. They are almost universally outgoing and attention seeking/friendly and will escape to seek affection elsewhere if not provided at home. They are often fearful of thunderstorms and will sense the approach and can also sense when owners are coming home or certain people are about to visit. They often have bursts of excitement or energy at dusk/ twilight and can be excessively over exuberant…think red Staffies that can’t sit still and freak out in thunderstorms. They tend to be very thirsty for large quantities of water and often very hungry as well. Phosphorous is also genuinely sympathetic and likes to be patted or stroked.

Phosphorous animals are often lanky and lean and if they are fast growing and if they have more extreme fears they are often CalcPhos or other salts like KaliPhos.  There is phosphorous in snake venom which affects coagulation and the medicines need to be differentiated.

The most memorable Phos case was my first experience with the medicine.

It was a case of immune mediated thrombocytopaenia which causes low platelet count and a tendency to bleed. I was a new homeopath and took a gamble that of the three main bleeding medicines, Phos felt like the right one and it was…..cured in 3 days with no relapse.

Since then I have used it very often for storm fears, inflammatory bowel syndrome, colitis and most recently for spike toxicity.

I post these blogs only to inspire people to see that there are effective natural medicines for all diseases if you can find a practitioner with the passion and experience required to manage them properly. Also to try and illustrate the beauty and complexity of the natural world and how we can immerse ourselves in the glory that we have at our disposal if only we can take the time and interest to appreciate and harness this amazing gift.


Homeopathy must prevail as a system of medicine for the benefit of the entire humanity and animal kingdom.

We  must all be advocates for nature as the world moves further and further away from following her wisdom and guidance.




Wednesday, March 2nd, 2022

There are countless definitions of this term both as a noun and a verb, as well as being a popular dog’s name and nickname for boys, my little brother included.

However, since 2021 this term has been hijacked to be used for one thing only.

There are numerous anecdotal and repeated reports in the human world of side effects from coronavirus injections that largely are ignored by the profession that pushes them as the only solution to the problem.

This has led countless thousands of unwell people to seek the help of naturopathic health practitioners to help them with what the medical profession terms ‘psychosomatic disease’ or ignores entirely, or worse, tells the patient directly there is nothing they can do to help.

Most of these people may not even yet be aware of what is making them unwell with conditions they have never had before. Moreover, the people and animals that they live with and share their space with are also being made sick.

There are two basic mechanisms operating

Both the virus and the vaccination create vasculitis (microclots/bleeding)

In addition, the mRNA vaccination produces spike protein (cytotoxin)

The difference is that with vaccination the body is being instructed to manufacture the spike protein with no off switch whereas with natural infection the body has an individualised approach to healing itself with no mixed messages. Most people naturally infected can even be largely unaffected, whereas with vaccine uptake the body has no choice to heal itself and we must hope the effects will wear off over time or be mitigated with natural medicines. In either case there is a definite odd feeling in both circumstances and it is widely acknowledged that vaccination does not protect from infection for coronavirus.

From what we have been able to observe the extrusion of manufactured spike protein in coronavirus vaccinated human beings is rampant for up to 3 weeks and maybe longer after each ‘jab’. With many Victorians now taking up the 3rd wave of injections we have another looming environmental hazard to navigate…..and this is never ever reported in the ‘News’.


This made headlines though…… plus the News broadcasts of the day throughout Melbourne throwing pet owners into a frenzy last year.


2nd July 2021 Daily Mail Australia

Horror virus hits more than 100 dogs in one of Australia’s biggest cities – leaving some pets hooked up to IV drips for days

  • Dog gastroenteritis is being spread through an inner-east Melbourne park
  • Over 100 dogs have caught the virus after visiting Citizen’s park in Richmond
  • Dogs who visited the park from June 11 have been contracting the disease
  • Older pets are particularly vulnerable, with some being put on intravenous drips


…..because few others than integrative veterinarians would recognise this for what it most likely really is…..spike sickness.


Coronavirus vaccine rollout started in Victoria in February, reached peak uptake May 2021 before similar rise in Aug/Sept same year.

This May rush to get jabbed would potentially have been a major contributor to the extrusion of spike protein by those being injected.

These dogs would all have been subjected to massive environmental contamination of spike protein extruded by their owners and other vaccinated inner city inhabitants who, at that time, COULD ONLY WALK DOGS as were locked up the rest of the time. So they ALL went to the dog park.


Notably, no ‘virus’ or infectious agent was ever isolated or identified from this ‘outbreak’ in dogs and no further reports of this ‘horror virus’ were made anywhere including reputable veterinary publications…..anywhere.

In fact, when a new bio threat surfaces veterinarians are the first to be notified and that never happened…..we heard nothing more about this but those of us who look out for patterns started seeing similar bizarre cases of small animal disease that had no formal diagnosis.


Here are some that I was personally made aware of, or that I treated myself once I realised what was happening.


My own personal experience was in March 2021 when I was violently ill for only the second time in my whole adult life. The first time was upon returning from China in 2004, 24-48 hrs of fever, severe lethargy and vomiting…..likely a virus ( likely SARSCov1) and the most sick I had been to date.

This time, March 2021, no virus or infection. I experienced sudden onset nausea building over 24 hrs to extreme vomiting that lasted another 24 hours and no other gastro signs at all. The lack of usual symptoms was curious until I now realise what I was likely experiencing….a toxic assault. In fact this is still the main symptom I feel when I am around people who have been jabbed with mRNA, the code for cytotoxic spike protein. I have been feeling generally ‘sick’ for over a year but no severe reoccurrences now that I know what is happening and avoid contact as much as possible.

The little animals are not so lucky given that they are patted, cuddled and have little to no escape from their people. Some of them from ‘clean’ households are still getting affected by neighbours, friends, family and the general environment because they are super sniffers and will pick up everything and crave attention from anyone. There is of course also an energetic component to this horrendous agent.


October 2021… call from a good client that has a clean household to say that her little Jack Russell Terrier was vomiting blood….that’s alarming for anyone, even the most sensible of clients. Upon further enquiry the little dog was not seeming unwell in herself (These things leave you feeling “odd” but not really unwell in the usual regards, which is the clue to the real cause.)  She had, however, been sitting on the lap of a recently double jabbed friend…..remedy Phos30 few doses, fine in a few hours.

I will talk about Phos in my next blog because this is a PHOSPHOROUS condition universally in homeopathic terms and fortunately we have this medicine available to treat both the disease and the vaccination side effects.


Christmas time……18month old French Bulldog (multiple jabbed household so overwhelming amount of spike) rushed to emergency because he could suddenly not use his back legs at all…..alarming again, hence visit to emergency. The vet could find absolutely nothing wrong except that the back legs would not work….Phos again but not given because I only found out about this later and the dog had recovered under its own steam.  This is also highly suggestive of the spike sickness as it is transient…….unless the animals are compromised in other ways with age or infirmity.

One that is not so lucky to recover without help because it is much younger and a lot more susceptible as a consequence……twelve week old puppy with sudden fulminant and severe pneumonia with no known cause…life threatening.  Vets recommend euthanasia as no treatment other than protracted and repeated antibiotic therapy with variable response and guarded prognosis…..Phos again.


So the themes here are

  • Sudden overwhelming feeling of nausea with or without vomiting
  • Sudden onset nervous signs, weakness, paralysis without pain usually
  • Sudden onset of bleeding
  • Sudden onset breathing difficulties/chest pain
  • A feeling of oddness or being unsettled
  • Often resolves spontaneously as quickly as it appeared unlike ANY known disease


Gut, nerve, brain and blood vessels…..Phosphorous… see next blog for a portrait.


I have not researched the components of the spike protein but I could bet there is quite a bit of phosphorous based on my own observations and understanding of this both as a homeopathic medicine and an essential element in many biochemical pathways in nature.


This unnatural virus creates unnatural disease and we are still working out how to support those affected. The so called vaccine is also unnatural and the ramifications of this approach will become apparent over time but is more prevalent and insidious than the virus itself. It is also interesting to note that the main target of the spike in vaccinated humans is the heart and the main target in non vaccinated ones is the gut.

Personal observation is that the brain/nerves is also affected in both cases.


I am not posting these blogs to add fuel to a contentious fire but rather because this massive experiment we are all being subjected to demands of us honest and truthful reporting of our observations and measurement of outcomes.

As health practitioners we have a duty of care to report adverse events.

My role here as a veterinarian is to report what I am treating in my animal patients.


The definition of SCIENCE is “observing and measuring” and anything else that is being sold is elaborate distraction.



Science says to Nature:

“To me, you are utterly useless!”

Nature says to Science:

“To me, you are deplorably harmful!”


Science is always in a hurry.

Nature has Eternity

At her disposal.


Science is the mind’s

Glorification and gratification.

Nature is the heart’s

Affection and satisfaction.

The Spiritual Life

Thursday, February 10th, 2022

Many people are drawn to my clinic purely on the basis that I take a spiritual perspective to life and also because I have been practising veterinary medicine for over thirty years.

Both of these attributes inform my approach to the practice of veterinary medicine.

My professional veterinary life is wholly focussed on helping animal owners to obtain the knowledge and skills to keep their own animals well once we have ascertained how to recover their health.

It is not possible to practice optimally in holistic medicine without acknowledging the ‘whole’ from whence the term most likely originated. This encompasses the physical/body, emotional/vital, mental/mind, spiritual/heart and the life force essence/soul.

Regular or conventional veterinary medicine is completely focussed on the physical aspect of the animal except for behavioural medicine that incorporates the emotional/vital driver of energy and a little of the mind. However, only a full appreciation of the entire being and understanding how each part interacts with the others will bring full health restoration. It is a shifting landscape that requires awareness and attention to detail; plus the homeopathic medicines that can effect profound change in the entire economy.


Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, whilst never calling the life force, ‘soul’, does refer to the spirit-like life force in aphorism #9 that leaves open to interpretation the following.


“In the healthy human state, the spirit-like life force (autocracy) that enlivens the material organism as dynamis, governs without restriction and keeps all parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operation, as regards both feelings and functions, so that our indwelling rational spirit can freely avail itself of this living, healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence.”


In less than an ideal world we all do the best we can to keep ourselves well and that requires us to avail ourselves of all the tools available to us.

It has been difficult to focus on the most important things these past months as we are increasingly drawn in to thinking and acting in ways that try to take us further and further away from our higher purpose.

Many people have expressed to me their need to identify with a deeper meaning and sense of direction; one that is not determined by outer circumstances or decided by those with little real interest or concern for our happiness.

I believe this can only come from a connection to our higher self, that I call the soul and it is very difficult to consciously rely upon the soul to maintain health without the practice of prayer and meditation.

As the direct representative of the One, the soul in all beings is having an experience on its own Life’s Soul-Journey which is also the name of the book by Sri Chinmoy that contains the following………


“What do we mean by the spiritual life? We mean a life of inspiration, aspiration and inner communion. When you are able to meditate for a few minutes, the mind does not become a victim to doubts, impure thoughts and unhealthy ideas. If you really and truly accept the spiritual life, you will see that in the twinkling of an eye, most of your difficulties not only decrease but disappear. This happens because in your spiritual life there is abundant strength which you do not have in your outer life. This abundant strength, when it comes to the fore, makes the outer life surrender automatically to the inner life. And when it surrenders, it is not from compulsion, but from a spontaneous inner feeling. It surrenders with joy because it feels that in surrender itself, it gets the full power and total bliss of the inner life.”


As humans, we complicate our lives with thoughts and ideas so that misunderstanding and conflict abounds in our outer reality. One of my favourite quotes from Sri Chinmoy goes like this….


“Truths come from a higher or deeper world, from a different plane of consciousness. It is when we put ourselves in tune with the universal harmony that life ceases to be unbearable”.

Striving to place ourselves in tune with the universal harmony takes effort and determination but first we have to value the concept. Then we have to dig deep into our own hearts and relearn how to connect to each other from there.  It is made easier by appreciating nature and taking help whenever it is afforded. Our animal companions inspire us to simplify our existence and expand our hearts. Their loyalty and devotion to us can model the attributes that we must seek to reinstate in our human lives as we strive for  peace and happiness in the world. These qualities come from within with a little help from our friends.

Walk the dog, pat the cat, tend to the garden and cuddle the kids.

Muster all your love so that our world can continue to provide all that we need to thrive.


Learn to make Heart Power a reality.


What is ruling the world

If not the darkness

Of misunderstanding minds?



Man creates disaster after disaster

For himself

What does God do?

God tries to save man

Each and every time.



Every self-giving effort

Of every human being

Is needed to change

The fate of the world.


Aphorisms from 77,000 Service Trees by Sri Chinmoy

Now What?

Sunday, January 16th, 2022

As animal lovers and ones who share our lives and purpose with them, we must now look to them and the natural world to inspire us to rediscover and ignite our joy, our enthusiasm to keep trying.

The massive and incomprehensible forces of division that have swept across the globe these past two years under various disguises and insulting names have created and perpetuated a level of fear that we and our animals have not been able to fully withstand without the help of each other.

As simple beings, animals offer us love, bring us joy and make us smile which is why there has been a shortage of pets for adoption over the year as we seek solace in their company as our own lives become harder to navigate.

Our pets and companion animals are also subjected to the same influences and assaults, albeit with differing and different coping mechanisms ,which is why we seek help from animal health professionals and integrative veterinarians who better understand such interactions.

Currently we are all facing an unprecedented, unnatural attack upon our health.

This will require us to dig deeper into our collective consciousness and use the mightiest of all weapons we have always had at our disposal but have forgotten how to wield….LOVE POWER

Fortunately, as domesticated beings spared from the harsh brutality of the wilds,  our animals also enjoy the luxury of a heart centred approach to life. They are largely protected from the mind hell that we, as humans, are prone to suffer and they do not need to kill each other any longer in order to survive.  This is partly why they are pivotal role models for our endurance as we take tips from their simplicity and genuine acceptance of life.


The prompt for this posting today….


My mind does not know

Where it is going.

My heart does not know

Why it is crying.

My life does not know

Why it is failing.

But I do know

What I am doing:

I am doing what I am inspired to do

From within.


With further commentary, also in  Sri Chinmoy’s own wise words….


“The best thing is not to use the mind to execute anything unless and until you have heard from the inner Source what you should do or what you should say. If you are prompted to do something but have not gone deep within, do not do it.

Before we actually execute what we feel like doing, let us go deep within. When it is an important matter, the best thing is not to even think of doing anything without going deep within. That is wisdom.”

We all know how intelligent and clever our animals can appear to be but few realise that this is survival intelligence and not the type of mental activity that causes suffering in humans. Animals have instinct which in the human is called intuition. It is their key to survival and we have mostly lost our own connection to this key. Our thoughts and the actions arising therefrom are too easily influenced by the over reliance we have on our large brains and the thirst for information.

We have forgotten to listen to our ‘gut instinct’ or our heart…our intuition.

It is difficult to find a healthy balance inside worldly messages as we naturally rely much more on rational thought, logic and the opinions or dictates of others. This is the defining difference between us and our pets given that we are all subjected to the same living conditions, climate and dietary influences, all of which have been discussed elsewhere as factors for disease. However disconcerting this may appear it is further compounded by the fact that rational thought, discussion, logic  and reliable information, once termed truth, have also been hijacked in the current world dilemma, so we must rely on our intuition even more strongly.


As a world currently in ‘disease’…not at ease…

here’s the kicker……up until now we have decided to give our pets and animals the medical interventions that we understand they need to keep them ‘healthy’. They have no choice in the injections or medicines they receive from us or our representatives. It is also widely recognised that dogs cannot attend school or boarding facilities or travel without their ‘shots’. Suddenly an eerie parallel appears in our current global ‘crisis’ that leaves me wondering who my ‘owner’ is and when this happened without my knowledge or consent.


The governing factors behind animal health management practices have been covered elsewhere  but we are being actively and aggressively prevented from discussing the factors influencing global human health management practices. This is a situation we must now learn to navigate with courage and conviction under a constant bombardment of real and manufactured fear, coercion and polarisation.


Using our helpmates, “our little brothers and sisters”, as Sri Chinmoy affectionately describes them, we must dig deep and listen to our higher selves as the messages get more and more difficult to hear against a tirade of senseless, divisive and useless background noise and fear.


Just as our dear dogs are ‘super sniffers’ and need to filter out the smells that are less important so must we too now learn to filter out the messages that are less important to our health and happiness as a human race. The only way forward, the only healing of the massive rift that has divided  and separated us from our fellow human beings has to be the emboldening and strengthening of our individual and collective spiritual heart because all mental battles are failing against the tyranny of technology. There can never be Artificial Heart.


Some tips for heart strengthening,


Pat or cuddle your pets/children often (if they are obliging)

Remind them how much you love them

Place fresh flowers in the house to appreciate beauty or stop to enjoy them in the garden

Walk every day and concentrate on the breath you take into your heart

Look at all things and all others with kindness

Take help from Mother Nature every day as food and inspiration

Be grateful and teach yourself to prioritise this feeling and most importantly…… be kind to yourself because we really need all good hands on deck for the foreseeable future.



“Before you look at the world, muster all your love”

Song, Sri Chinmoy


“I must meditate and meditate

And meditate

Either to illumine my mind

Or to conquer the disasters

That my mind creates.”


Excerpt 478..My Morning Soul-Body Prayers, Sri Chinmoy


Saturday, October 16th, 2021

I have always been an advocate for clean healthy nonGM foods for my family and I took pains when my kids were little to avoid as much as possible these genetically altered foods.  These days my time is spent supporting biodynamic farmers and food co-operatives as well as growing food at home.

My son still remembers me taking him to Melbourne on the train in 2008 to our Victorian Parliament House to demand that the Premier of the day say NO to lifting the ban on GMO crops. The Premier did not hear us, or he did not care to listen, or he got other information he would rather believe. He signed away our future that day without even blinking.

When I developed this web blog in 2005 I made a commitment to keep politics out of it but given that our lives have been turned upside down again this year on this same issue only now in the guise of “vaccination”, I feel compelled to shine some light on this alarming situation since it is no longer just the food this industry is targeting, it is our children themselves. Vaccination happens to be my area of professional expertise and we have to choose our battles. It is a very uncomfortable conversation to have and with the thick fog of confusion that has engulfed us all to an alarming extent it is even harder to engage in meaningful communications with each other without feeling sick.

Politics is a major culprit in creating and fuelling this conflict and as law abiding decent people, it can be hard to stand against a government that is overstepping it’s remit.


As a veterinarian, a parent and a health practitioner, politics has invaded my territory again and it is not welcome.


We have been forced to endure a story, a falsehood, that has been sold to us as a solution to a problem and not truthfully declared to be a massive experiment on the genome.


YES..It has happened again in 2021 with a different Premier from the same party only this time it is humans that are the GM Organisms as we ourselves become the unwitting test subjects.


GMO has permeated the food chain and animal foods now for over two decades and it has probably caused a lot of the adverse food events we have seen in the veterinary world over recent years. It is pertinent to revisit the ethics of this technology when there is so little other information coming out to help people make healthy choices in this current dilemma.


It will not be long before genetic manipulation will enter animal (and human) health treatment plans and it will not be long before there are more new and untreatable chronic diseases emerging as a direct result of the derailment of natural evolution and the natural order of biological systems that obey natural laws.



The bottom line in this current crisis, one that all virologists and immunologists must confess, is that you cannot make a vaccine against coronavirus.

This is undeniable unless the definition of vaccine is changed.

The bigger picture is that the human genome is now being patented and genetic engineering of the human is a much more alarming problem.

This massive rollout of genetic assault heralds the beginning of a new era of medicine.  Now that the stops are pulled out and there is no scrutiny or accountability required of the practice, we are fair game.  Unless we wake up to the potential and reality of the rapidly unfolding disaster that this approach is creating, we will have to fight even harder to reclaim our health and humanity. For sure there will be opinions regarding the benefits of these technologies and success stories of miraculous cures to genetic diseases but that is a very small fraction of the unfathomable reality. These advancements deserve thorough safety studies and slow steady development not rolled out as quickly and indiscriminately as possible under the guise of an emergency.


Most things being injected in the name of vaccination for coronavirus are genetic experiments that have largely unknown effects. They are certainly not going to create herd immunity either. Furthermore, they are likely to act as an obstacle to allowing natural immunity (true herd immunity) in the majority of people who may contract the virus in the wild.  There is even an emerging pattern of exacerbated symptomatology in those having been injected and then contracting the disease that warrants investigating before any further demands are made upon the public to subject themselves to further experimentation.

Herd immunity which protects populations of animals (yes it is a veterinary concept), is best achieved through naturally acquired infection and recovery and in some diseases with some vaccines also through vaccination. Historically, coronavirus was/is notorious for not producing protective antibodies which is why we keep getting the ‘common cold’ and why this has been such a controversial issue. Ironically however, we are discovering that many people in the world already have a level of protection to the novel coronavirus that contributes to herd immunity, likely through other antibody/immune pathways yet to be identified but involving cross reactivity amongst a host of other mechanisms. This quality research towards an ethical solution is being hampered from being of further benefit to us all by blanket vaccination policies. These forced injections are clouding any truly scientific approach to a discovering a sustainable and humane solution.


The vast majority of people who contract coronavirus recover uneventfully or show few symptoms. The ones who develop more severe or worrying signs need to be treated and yet there has been NO discussion about the availability and effectiveness of treatments for this virus. Instead, there has been a massive media driven scaremongering and suppression of helpful, truthful, hopeful information that the public deserves to have to be able to treat themselves promptly and without panic or fear. It is a complex issue made even more so by the prevention of communication between a variety of health professionals and scientists who could be collaborating and co-operating if they were enabled.


Given that many thousands of people who may read this or become aware of it will already have been injected, I encourage you to discuss with naturopaths, homeopaths and other integrative medical authorities about what can be done to mitigate some of the side effects that you may or may not yet be experiencing. Bear in mind that these vaccine adverse effects can manifest weeks and months afterwards and that is not being acknowledged let alone discussed.

As confronting as this advice may appear, it is the best I can offer given that we have all been pushed so quickly along this trajectory of fear that we have little time to assimilate and no opportunity to communicate before it is too late. It will be some time yet before the full data is collected and examined and before it can be of lasting benefit to the long game but in the meantime we must be allowed to have the discussions and conversations that we have been denied over these past two years. Nobody can truthfully claim to have all the answers which is why we must find the courage and compassion to listen to everybody.


Knowledge is power but wisdom is kindness to yourself and to others and we need both at this unprecedented time in our Earth history.


-This is a treatable disease.

-It is NOT a preventable disease through injections of any kind.

-Education about nutrition and immune competency is more helpful than messages that engender fear and lower immunity further.

-Social and family support networks enhance immunity


Question: What shape is our manifestation taking politically?

Sri Chinmoy: Politically we are not in the forefront, but our aspiration is entering into politics for the illumination of political minds. Outwardly, politicians do not want to receive light, so we are trying to give it silently. We feel that politics as such is far from perfect and needs illumination; therefore, inwardly and silently we are trying to do the needful according to our capacity.

Sri Chinmoy, Politics and spirituality: can they go together?, Agni Press, 1977


Question: Can a spiritual aspirant participate actively in politics?

Sri Chinmoy: Very often we hear the word “politics,” and it is followed by “a dirty business.” People say, “Politics is a dirty business.” There is considerable truth in this. There is very little light, practically no light, in the political world. Politics is wanting in light because it is wanting in true sacrifice. It is only a kind of competition that is going on between parties which are equally bad. Naturally, one of them will win eventually.

If we feel that we will be able to change the face of the world by the path of politics, then we are sadly mistaken. Nothing can change the face of the world save and except inner aspiration. Inner aspiration only is of paramount importance, especially for the seekers of the Truth. Those who want to take an active part in politics will undoubtedly lose their purest aspiration for God.

God is in everything; so naturally God is also in politics. But we have to know how we can best approach God. It is our aspiration that will lead us directly to the Highest. Once we reach the Highest, then the highest Supreme Himself will take us into the heart of humanity.

I am not telling you to stop voting. No, far from it. But the most important thing is to make your inner choice. The spiritual aspirants have to vote for the divinity within themselves. When that divinity tells them what to do, they have to do it. Then, no matter what happens in the outer life, in the political world, the seeker has to be satisfied.

Who will solve the problems of your country? Not this party or that party. It is you who will solve the problems of your country, and not a political leader. Your aspiration for humanity will be able to save not only America, but the entire world. Each one of you here has that burning flame of aspiration. When your aspiration climbs up to the highest and then climbs down to kindle the ignorant world, then only will the world become a better place.

A sincere, genuine seeker must be careful of how much he is involved in politics. Spirituality, inner life and inner discipline are his first and foremost business. There are billions of people in the world who can be involved in politics, since they are not involved in spirituality. But sincere aspirants should remain far above the world of politics, in the Lap of the Supreme. There they will constantly grow into light, peace, bliss, confidence and universal harmony.

Let Sleepings Dogs Lie

Friday, October 8th, 2021

There is much hidden wisdom in our collective history and subconscious that still needs to come to light. Perhaps none so more than in these present troublesome and turbulent times have we sought to find meaning in our existence and connection with our purpose.

Reflecting on this adage today and being uncertain as to when it came into common usage, I have always taken this to mean …literally, don’t wake a sleeping dog that may be dangerous when aroused and allegorically, don’t try to go back to fix a problem once it has been resolved or put to bed.

My insight today leads me to share another perspective on the interpretation of this old saying.


Many Eastern philosophies speak of the great illusion in terms of Lila or Maya or just simply the great illusion we are living under. An illusion is basically a lie, a falsehood. The basis of this is not to dismiss the importance of life but simply to remind us that our experiences here are transitory and constructed to teach us important lessons before we move back to our reality which is our divine existence. In Western philosophy it roughly translates as …make the most of your life since we only live once and then are dead for a very long time.


It is not difficult to see why many of us are searching for more meaning to our short existence if we come from a Western culture and another well known adage…East is East and West is West and ne’er (never) the two shall meet…has been put into contention in recent decades as more and more of us here, seeking a higher purpose, turn to the beauty of Eastern philosophies.

The many differences between Eastern and Western cultures are being mitigated by globalisation and expanding awareness of our oneness home and more of us are seeking similarities rather than differences. Ironically and perhaps not surprisingly in this age of global technocracy, we have indeed all been placed in the same hand basket this year regardless of where we live on Earth.

In spiritual terms we talk about the ones who are not awake as being the people who have not yet recognised their inner truth or the sovereignty of their own higher beings. All philosophies term this the Soul but varied interpretations abound. The only truth to be had resides inside each and every one of us only some of us can access this more readily than others.



In 2021 I have come to realise…..let sleeping dogs….dogs in this regard are the dogs of war, the dogs of industry, the ones who ‘dog’ us to comply to unreasonable regulation ..also not awake to their higher purpose…..lie……propagate falsehood….. “Let sleeping dogs lie.”


This little exercise of mine therefore, having been born from a need to express myself creatively in an increasingly hostile world, has rejuvenated an old saying that brings new insight. I am sure there is much wisdom to be found in our collective human history of similar ilk so I will keep you posted…..maybe my next attempt will be to work out what the hell ‘ilk’ is or from whence it came.

In the meantime, Paws to Heal continues to support animals and their people to find common ground through meaningful communication so that we can all stay well and healthy.

Thank you all for your ongoing support, appreciation and encouragement.

In a Nutshell

Monday, September 20th, 2021

The health benefits obtained from simple whole organic foods are literally life saving. Pistachio nuts for example contain the highest amount of food derived melatonin which will augment restful sleep cycles in humans and assist body repair. The companion animals will sleep better when we do.

Admittedly it is not always accurate to extrapolate knowledge from the human world of natural medicine to animals, so I don’t recommend routinely using nuts in cat and dog diets.  Although interestingly, it was animals themselves that originally led to many discoveries for us during our close association with them over thousands of years. Our observations of the natural world and the behaviour of animals has helped humankind to adapt to a wide range of environmental stressors and has led to the discovery of many natural medicines.

I have written about this zoopharmacognasy elsewhere.

It is probably also safe and appropriate to extrapolate mammalian physiology given that we are all in the same family of organisms and share most of our cellular traits even though the mechanics of the digestive systems vary based on the evolution of dentition. Humans do have a greater capacity to digest and assimilate carbohydrates and grains as we evolved from carnivore to omnivore over centuries and dentition to grind and masticate more like ruminants. Arguably we have largely arrived at herbivore/plant based nutrition status. Our cats and dogs have not. That does not mean however that they will not attain benefit from plant foods as will be discussed in more detail in this post.

As holistic veterinarians that think deeply and widely about optimizing health through nutrition, my colleagues and I can attest to the parallels in nutritional approaches to cure. We are still endeavouring to understand many elements that have been widely studied in human medicine to see if they have a role in animal health. It is encouraging that these approaches are gaining traction with the relatively recent focus on the microbiome  and the importance of feeding the gut. I am sure that our efforts have brought this to light for mainstream veterinary practice and strengthened by animal carers like yourselves who challenge your veterinarians to account for nutrition based health decisions and real food recommendations for your animals.

It has been some time now since we developed dietary recommendations for cancer care for animals and whilst these have on occasion been challenged for evidence by schools of veterinary science nevertheless remain firm advice for most animals in my care with good results for improved wellbeing.

Not surprisingly, this diet is very similar to other health promoting suggestions of mushrooms, brassicas and fish oils. It can be hard to get dogs and cats to eat some of these things but there are many more options available these days with mushroom extracts and powders and access to Chinese teas and medicines.

This particular post arising on the high tide of virus paranoia that is currently sweeping the world addresses some very simple life affirming nutrients that protect mammals from virus invasion and replication.


I am grateful to my naturopathic colleagues in the human world for presenting a micro view of the cellular universe we all inhabit as much of the information I am about to share has been made available this year for obvious reasons.

Human medical research is a huge and lucrative enterprise on the world stage and most of us do not get to hear about a fraction of what is being studied or discovered unless there is a commercial market for it or we are rigorous in searching data bases for theses or scientific papers.



More specifically certain factors and enzymes are famous in the nutrition world for protecting us from viral or bacterial invasion.


The prize for 2020-2021 has been awarded to Sulphoraphane for being the most helpful nutrient to not only battle oxidative stress (cancer included) but also to prevent cell invasion by virus and bacteria. The complex biochemistry is well explained via terms like Nrf2 and signaling sequences and as with much of the natural world there are some enchanting paradoxes in this science for those of us interested in looking more closely. Suffice to say that in order to be resilient to cellular damage there needs to be a primary defence mechanism that stops the organism entering the cell and an off switch in the case the hull is breached.

Ironically the primary defence is also triggered by stress. Too much ongoing stress then of course causes trouble. Much of the damage caused by coronavirus invasion for example, occurs because there is no off switch that stops the body from damaging itself as an overreaction to this invasion. Fear is a mega stress for us all at present and fortunately not one that animals succumb to very often except from our example. Other emotions like anxiety, doubt, despair and anger will also lower immune function and the converse is that laughter and happiness will increase immune capacity.


The off switch is Nrf2 that comes from Sulphoraphane.


Needless to say many other whole foods are also hugely beneficial and it can be hard to get cats and dogs to eat broccoli and cabbage. It is also best that these vegetables be lightly cooked/cut/fermented for optimal benefit.

Plant based fibre is a boon to health for all animals. Hay and roughage are much more healthy rations for horses and livestock than grain based diets. Recent studies have confirmed that racehorses fed grain based rations will have a higher risk and incidence of gastritis (stomach inflammation) than those fed roughage or hay rations.

We have known for a long time that cattle and chicken raised in feedlots have higher inflammatory omega6 in their muscles and fat (meat), resulting from them being fed grains.


Adding fibre to your pets diet with plant foods will also enhance the gut-brain and gut-lung axes given that these interactions between certain naturally occurring healthy bacteria in the gut and the organs will augment optimal function. Baby mammals drink milk because the lactobacillus in the gut protects their lungs via a butyrate pathway. Fibre in the diet is the precursor (prebiotic) for these healthy bacteria to flourish for example. Arguably mature mammals do not need milk or milk products to remain healthy but fibre is always essential for myriad other good bacterial processes. Perhaps my increased desire for butter recently indicates a need for butyrate in my diet but I acknowledge it may also just be an excuse for comfort food. Dogs and cats on the other hand must have raw fats and uncooked oils for energy.

Some simple recommendations for enhancing viral immunity include

Brassicas (cooked/fermented/mashed)

Fibre from other raw vegetables pulp and plants/leafy greens

Tumeric (powder or fresh root)

Vitamin A and D (occur naturally in fish oils, meat/offal and dairy).

Quercetin (do NOT give cats or dogs onion which is highest in this, use leafy greens instead)

Good bacteria, Bifidobacterium for example

The above information pertains specifically to enhancing immunity.

Protocols for detoxification from harmful chemical assaults upon our bodies are similar but require refinement so please contact me should you be needing this kind of support for your family.


Recommendations for complete and balanced best diets for dogs and cats can be found at Dr Clare Middle’s website.   or by visiting or contacting Paws to Heal. 

Harness Mother Nature’s gifts….do not join the fight against Her.

Eat well to be well yourselves and provide the same boon to your beloved pets.

It can take an effort to get going but perpetual motion takes less effort as we try to move forward together towards a healthier planet and a higher purpose.


Question:…….I find it very difficult to pray for anything other than health because health is so important. I feel selfish when I pray for anything else.

Sri Chinmoy: You are doing absolutely the right thing. When you pray for health, you are praying not only for the physical body but also for the mind, vital, heart and everything. If your health is not good, if you are suffering from a headache or stomach upset or some other ailment, then how will you be happy? Your mind will be occupied only with pain; your heart will be breaking. The best thing is to pray first and foremost for health. Afterwards, you can pray for other things that you would like to have.

30. What do you want?
I want good health

Meditate on a dancing child.


Mighty Mammals

Monday, August 30th, 2021

Over these past two years we have all been overly distracted by health threats but it seems that very few of us have sufficient education and knowledge to understand or navigate the serious corruption of health information and misinformation being perpetrated. I am privileged to be placed in a position of some degree of authority, to have the ability to discern what constitutes health and to provide options to restore and maintain health for as long as possible. It is my livelihood and it is a privilege. I am a Veterinarian and we are all members of the animal kingdom.

It has been and continues to be a distressing time for the higher mammals like ourselves and subsequently, by virtue of their dependence and service to us, the lower mammals with whom we cohabitate. My practice is busier than ever because many more people are starting to realise that perhaps there is a better way to stay healthy and also keep their pets strong and resilient without chemicals or the need for genetic engineering.

Most people like myself with a background in virology, immunology, epidemiology and pharmacology have been trying to make sense of the global health situation that has spiralled out of control. A few of us, or maybe many of us, are seriously alarmed by the manipulation of our behaviour through fear and threats both perceived and real.

We are all being treated like we are all the same and we are not.


Some of us have a greater ability to discern and discover helpful information.

Some of us take a snippet of this information and weave it into a story.

Some of us deliberately like to upset or frighten others.

Some of us think that we know everything

Some of us know that we know very little.

All of us are confused and upset.


This blog was initially established in 2005 to support my clients and help others to think differently about the options we all have for managing to stay healthy. It is also an offering to my spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy for his belief in a “Oneness World Home”.    

More than ever in my life this ideal is being challenged in 2021 as our world faces what I can only understand to be cataclysmic, divisive change  and alarming harm. I have decided to call this period in our history the Health War because all the mainstream rhetoric and catchphrases abounding are disgraceful attempts to trademark unacceptable actions that I refuse to endorse as normal human behaviour. Few of us realise that some dictionary words have been redefined this year and retrofitted to suit these purposes and perhaps fewer still care…..but I do care….I really do. I’m not sure what pains me more, the fact that this is occurring or the fact that so few people seem to care.


There are countless many other valiant and courageous people starting to reach out to our fellow human beings with information that can support them to make decisions in these turbulent times.  The way I navigate the perils of conflict and mistrust is to try to feel what makes me peaceful inside in contrast to what deeply unsettles me. This requires silencing the mind and that can take considerable practice and patience.


The best things in life are simple and free.


It is only recently that the information I have needed has become available to me because it has had to permeate through a web of hostile intent generated by the forces we have been feeding and allowing to overly influence our lives through technology in the past twenty years or more. These filters allow fragments of information to be available that can be assembled in so many permutations that they fail to communicate any truth at all.


The only thing I can say with any certainty is that things are not right in the world.


There are many good people waiting to be of service to humanity and life on this planet if we know how to access them and encourage them to contribute to the discussion with their reliable knowledge, expertise and wisdom.


The animals have been feeling our anxiety for a long time which is partly why my practice is flourishing. They are doing their bit but like most of us are desperate for support.

Animals rely on our compassion and our love and that is what we need to share.

Health has been hi-jacked not only by opinions but by politics and corporations because it is a hugely important and profitable industry. Science is a fragment and a fragmented enterprise of the whole picture that provides accurate information to establish a way forward but often only select pieces of this information are given value by those who get to decide what they want people to know.


There is good science to support our decisions to manage our health through natural and innate mechanisms that does not cost the Earth and does not require us all to be treated as identical game pieces. We are all different and cannot be subjected to a forced health agenda on the premise that one size fits all because that is a totally inaccurate and dangerous assumption. Fear is an extremely powerful weapon and we must be strong enough regardless of our opinions to hold the centre ground for the long term survival of all species on it. Extreme views are inherently destructive to our goal of a unified and peaceful world and they are hard to harness for good.


I will continue to post blogs with nutritional and spiritual survival tools. In the meantime, anyone who wants links to the science supporting the fact that many of us probably already have a level of immunity to most microbial things we encounter and that the current herd immunity concept is based in outdated 1970’s data, please contact me directly.

I can also describe to you very simply and clearly how immunity works should you like to have that basic knowledge to make important decisions for all the animals in your family.


The way forward is with courage, kindness and compassion regardless of the individual choices we make to manage our health and that of our animals, as those choices are our sovereign right…… “Be brave, be brave, no fear, no fear.”


We must be mighty mammals until such time that we further evolve and all this becomes less important.
