Title and Presentation Time

Equine Melanoma, Chronic Canine Lameness, and Chronic Feline Nasal Discharge

2 hours of lecture

Objectives

To discuss all aspects of case analysis in three cured patients.

To study curative remedy response.

A grey Arabian mare presented with a 3 inch-diameter biopsy-verified melanoma in the right throat latch area. After numerous remedies failed to achieve more than temporary reduction of the mass, the curative remedy was determined. A year follow-up demonstrated no return of the mass. We will discuss the dramatic differences between the non-curative remedy responses and the curative response.

A 4 year-old Airedale dog presented following a two-year history of shoulder lameness. The curative remedy resolved her lameness and allowed her to return to her favorite sport of ball chasing. She lived until she reached age 11 years, and remaining pain-free.

A cat presented with persistent nasal plugs which had not resolved, despite frequent cleaning, for the past 3 seasons. She cleared this chronic problem following 3 doses of her curative remedy, and has remaining free of her nasal discharge for the past 4 years.

Title and Presentation Time

Lost &Found: The Art of (Veterinary) Medicine

Speaking Time 1.5 hours

This will be a philosophical discussion of the past, present, and future trends in veterinary and human medicine, emphasizing the role of homeopathy in preserving and growing what remains of the art of medicine.

Objectives:

  1. To challenge veterinary homeopaths to elevate the art of medicine in their practices and become true healers.
  2. To test the beliefs and practices of veterinary homeopaths (e.g., with respect to science, EBM, ego and compensation) against the dominant paradigm of medical culture.

Abstract:  

In a world of technology evolving at breakneck speed and an arrogant elite policing the acceptable boundaries of “evidence-based medicine,” there is this nagging problem of patients in need of real healers so that they can become and stay well. In this talk, we will explore how our healers have been supplanted by data collectors and skilled technicians; how science has changed as it answers to new masters; how economic forces, payment systems, medical hierarchies and politics have driven these changes; and why it takes bright, motivated and sensitive people to learn the art of medicine and restore this essential pathway to true healing. Examples from human and veterinary medicine, emphasizing the resurgence of homeopathy and other holistic paradigms, will take us to the place where skillful, empathetic healers actually know how to navigate and beneficially apply today’s scientific knowledge, and make good judgments when EBM is refused or simply fails the patient.

Title: Homeopathic Treatment of Respiratory Infections in Horses

Objective: To give an overview of homeopathic treatment options for respiratory cases in horses. Discussion will cover obstacles to cure, polycrest remedies to consider, materia medica and repertory study, and case discussions.

Abstract: Respiratory infections are an important topic for equine veterinarians. Recent epidemiological surveys conducted on large populations of horses identify lameness and respiratory infections as the two most common causes of performance related problems and illness in equine populations. Homeopathic treatment in these cases can be very successful and rewarding and provide an excellent alternative to allopathic care

Presentation Time: 1 hour

Title: Homeopathic Prescribing in a No-Kill animal Sanctuary Setting

Objective: To give an overview of the challenges and rewards of homeopathic prescribing in a large animal sanctuary/shelter setting. Discussion will cover the challenges of integrating homeopathy into this setting and will cover case discussions of a wide variety of species including: wildlife, pot bellied pigs, goats, horses, and sheep (potentially dogs and cats as well-cases pending)

Abstract: Homeopathic prescribing in a sanctuary/shelter setting presents unique challenges and rewards as well as the potential to use homeopathy in a variety of interesting species.

TITLE: Homeopathy offers an alternative to euthanasia in distemper patients.

OBJECTIVE: To present a successful homeopathic case where the prognosis was very poor due to canine distemper with neurological disease presentation.

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate that homeopathy is a viable treatment for distemper cases.

ABSTRACT: The morbidity and mortality rate in distemper cases with a neurological presentation is high in the Mexican dog population, either vaccinated or not. The homeopathic approach in these cases can provide a very rewarding outcome changing the veterinary allopathic perspective and avoiding euthanasia. 

Presentation Time: 1 hour
TITLE: Improving average life expectations with Homeopathy.

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate that a well-chosen remedy can improve  a patient´s life span regardless of statistics.

OBJECTIVE: To stress the importance of treating patients early in life with homeopathy in order to significantly alter the progression of disease.

ABSTRACT: The use of homeopathic remedies in patients with severe congenital diseases can improve life span without serious problems and reducing the stress to owners compared to patients treated allopathically.  Incorporating medical tests provides us with an objective view of the case status.

Title: Radical Cures with Homeopathy

Objective: To demonstrate curative responses with homeopathy in patients diagnosed with severe immune mediated illness and given little chance of full recovery without long term suppressive drug therapy. Presentation will include objective measurements that clearly demonstrate curative response following homeopathic treatment.

Abstract: Immune mediated illnesses are a common presentation in veterinary medicine, and often require long term, multi-modal drug therapy in order to suppress the disease. Prognosis in most of these cases is guarded to poor, and treatment is complicated by the severe side effects caused by the prescribed medicines. Homeopathic treatment seeks to correct the underlying imbalance within the patient, and provides an opportunity for cure without the use of harmful drugs.
