treatable conditions

Holistic methods of treatment can address most conditions, ranging from behavioral disorders such as aggression or separation anxiety, all the way to the most severe physical ailments such as epilepsy or cancer. Sometimes the conditions can be cured - meaning there is no more signs of any dis-ease and no further treatment is necessary, and sometimes with more advanced severe chronic disease, the immune system and the life force of the animal can be raised enough to relieve or eradicate the symptoms as long as there are periodic acupuncture treatments or continuing use of homeopathic remedies or supplements. Where there is advanced tissue pathology, such as severe arthritic changes, the structure of the body can rarely be reversed. In all cases, however, the treatments are building the animal's health, strength and immune system, in contrast to the use of conventional drugs, where the animal's system can be weakened by the drug itself, or suffer debilitating or disastrous side effects.
