The Basic Principles of Health and Healing

second nature healing 


Hello {!firstname_fix}


I asked some friends recently what they thought the basics of health and healing might be. Their responses included good sleep, eating well, and movement . . . all sound responses – all tried and true. However, not everyone can achieve good sleep. Not everyone makes good choices for eating. It might not even be so
easy for people to move their bodies.
If this is the case, then we HAVE TO go deeper. We have to go to the core of health and healing – to the root, so to speak. Because of this, I decided to delve into the ways I see as core issues to assemble the Basic Principles of Health and Healing.

Frankincense for Dogs With Cancer

essential oils for animalsEssential oils have been an integral part of my Reiki healing clinic for several years. I consider their energy and aroma extremely valuable for all aspects of the services I provide – for trauma release, physical and emotional relief, spiritual enhancement, and revitalizing abilities, I love how essential oils fit into natural healing work. My clients and students feel supported, and the work we do seems to be more effective.

Not long after I began using essential oils for my human clients did I investigate the possibility and efficacy of essential oils for my animal clients. Careful consideration was given to the quality of essential oils, and I chose a specific company to support my work in the best possible way. It matters to the animals!

Great care must be taken not to make medical claims, so my research led me to specific studies involving human cancer since fewer studies with essential oils are done with animals. In one study, frankincense from Boswelia carteri was used for human bladder cancer to see if it would be effective as an anti-tumor agent. The results were quite promising.

“Frankincense oil appears to distinguish cancerous from normal bladder cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Microarray and bioinformatics analysis proposed multiple pathways that can be activated by frankincense oil to induce bladder cancer cell death. Frankincense oil might represent an alternative intravesical agent for bladder cancer treatment.” (1)

Frankincense for Dogs with Cancer

Backed by research and ready to offer support to my animal clients, dogs with cancer, I added frankincense essential oil from Boswelia carteri to my list of effective natural solutions. I have found that specific essential oils help with immune support, digestion, emotional support, and many other types of support for health and recovery.

There are several considerations to be made before using frankincense for your dog:

  1. age and size of your dog
  2. overall health and current diagnosis, if any
  3. current diet
  4. quality and purity of the frankincense (I use only the ones I trust to be the best)
  5. dosage and frequency specific for your animal
  6. combination with other treatments
  7. integration with other essential oils
  8. method of delivery
  9. your holistic approach and attitude

 Wellness Scan and Reiki

Work with your vet to have the support a veterinarian offers – lab tests, ultra sound, x-rays, etc. Gather as much information as possible. However, remember to also include a more complete aspect of healing with an intuitive assessment and Reiki. Learn more  about Animal Healing or contact me for a free consultation.
