By @mindspark | November 26, 2011

In all the research I performed for this paper, combined with what I learned in veterinary school regarding feline nutrition, CATS ARE CARNIVORES!  Not only that, but they are obligate carnivores (they MUST eat meat).  Cats have no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates.  Cats were designed to eat mice (one of nature’s perfect foods for a cat).  […]

Few other systems are as critical to overall health as the digestive system.   According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we are born with a certain amount of Qi or energy.  This Qi is what allows us to “live” and can only be replenished through respiration (breathing), and digestion.  This makes sense, since if we […]

The Body Is A Complicated Machine With A Unique Ability To Repair

So I had 2 children, 8 and 6 years old, and neither one fit in the “box” as defined by the school system.  I was working full-time in my veterinary office and had no associate.  Fortunately I owned my own veterinary hospital and could make rules that worked for me.  My husband also worked with […]
