Stories of Hope

Tilly | Pepper | Bitsy | Ali | Precious | Tiger | Scarlet

In Sept of 2013, I rescued a dog name Tilly who came down with distemper. She was tested it was positive for Canine Distemper. Tilly's case was extremely bad. Various treatments were given including allopathic, homeopathic, herbs, super foods, massage, and surgery were all tried over a 2 month period. None of these treatments seem to stop the progression of the disease. She was still going down to the point she became paralyzed with her head tilted and would bite at me, a true sign of distemper in its final stage. During the two month period Tilly had four veterinarians working very hard to save her. She could not drink on her own nor did she want anything to drink so I had to force liquids down with a syringe. Tilly was at the point where the quality of life was so bad I was going to have her put down. 

Lucky for Tilly, I had gone to Bastyr University, a naturopathic school where I studied Homeopathy. I have 108 hours in this subject from this school. I decided to really look into her symptoms and try to determine a homeopathic remedy for her. I chose Baryta Carb one dose 200 C potency. It was amazing within a short period she began to stand up and went over to the water bowl and began drinking. Each day she improved; on day 15 she was moving around fast, drinking, eating, etc. like a normal dog. I have never seen anything like this to act so rapidly. Clearly this homeopathic medicine worked for her. Just one dose and it was like it worked on her body so fast. After a month her skin became dry and flaky, I choose not to give anything for this which turned out to be fine this went away a few weeks later; it may have been her body detoxing through the skin. Within 6 weeks Tilly was cured. She runs around today like she was never sick. 

I have included some different symptoms I used to determine the medicine I decided on. Agglutination of the nostrils, Tilly was small for her breed, she was cold and would cover herself, shaking, shy, dilatation of pupils, scabs around nose, breathing was difficult, chest congested, and paralyzed. One clear thing was that her nose always had agglutination of the nostrils. There are only 5 remedies for this listed in Kent Repertory of homeopathic materia medica. When the paralysis starts another remedy is Helleborus to consider. 

What I learned through this journey is to do Homeopathy first and foremost. The potency that I always seem to have the best results from is 200 C for both people and animals. Never discard any symptom no matter how small. I can think of two cases where dogs were cured by one clear symptom. One being the dog was suffering from grief - found the dog sitting beside a dead dog who apparently was its friend. I had treated the dog for being shy and for grief with a homeopathic medicine that did not work. When I included the shyness, grief and added her texture and color of her stool this is when the cure came. The remedy given was Ferr Phos and later followed up with Puls. The other dog was incontinent; tests and x-rays showed nothing physically wrong with this dog. How I determined her remedy was by the physical structure of her body. She laid down with one of her back legs pointed upward which is her lower knee foot part of the leg. There were two remedies that listed laying down this way with incontinent problem. Clearly taking every single aspect of the body to determine the homeopathic remedy to be administered is key to finding the right remedy. 

One thing I see in Homeopathy, is when a doctor prescribes a remedy over and over again and it does not bring about any lasting change in the first place – the doctor will say, keep giving it. Well this is exactly how you prove a medicine and not how you cure the patient. 

I have been studying Homeopathy and have been using remedies for over 30 years. For me it is the best medicine on the planet. It can bring about cures like no other healing methods. 

Tilly is an example of a dog that was cured from distemper. I know there are various modalities to treating distemper and that Homeopathy needs to be taken seriously to consider.

Neck twisted and barely able to walk from distemper.

Tilly was taken to Houston, TX where a special distemper surgery was performed. It did not work and her head formed knots with scabs on them.

Tilly had weight lost and you can see where she had agglutination on her nostrils (crust covered her nostrils).

Pepper's Story and Video
Pepper, a Shih Tzu dog, was rescued in 2001 from the City of Dallas Animal Shelter. His poor condition included ticks, fleas and burned skin. Pepper was diagnosed with a terminal disease and lost physical mobility soon after.

He is still alive and well. Pepper's recovery to a normal life is due to the alternative healing techniques in this site (see Pepper's Story).
