Jane Barber, DVM, MS, Theriogenologist -
Most troubling to
many animal lovers is the increasing number of health problems
encountered in their pets. Across the country, veterinarians are seeing
more cases of skin problems, hair loss, low energy, muscle weakness,
toxicity and degenerative diseases (chronic digestive and joint
problems, for example) in the animals they treat. Also, many conditions
associated with old age are cropping up at much younger ages.
Even experts cannot agree on the causes. Some
researchers believe that poor breeding practices (genetic selection) are
to blame. Others point the finger at environmental influences, and
provide compelling evidence that both animals and their human families
are being exposed to an overwhelming amount of toxins. These toxic
substances can come from a multitude of different sources - the air we
breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and unfortunately, many
come to us in the form of the chemicals that are in the medications we
take into our bodies. While the debate goes on, pet owners are concerned
when mainstream medicine cannot help their pets. One thing is clear
-more and more medications seem to make things worse. Frustrated at
their inability to find effective treatments for their pets' mounting
health problems, pet owners more and more are turning to alternative
approaches for keeping their pets healthy.
This Veterinarian "Tests the
Waters" of Energy Medicine
Phillip had been talking to me for
weeks about magnets and this energy medicine stuff. But I was his worst
skeptic. After all, I was a highly trained veterinarian. In fact, I had
a sum total of 17 years of academic training under my belt, not to
mention almost 20 years of clinical experience to boot. And he thought
he could educate me about alternative treatment options for my patients?
Not likely. In the guise of interest, I politely listened to what he had
to say, not believing a word of it. Certainly, if energy medicine had
any merit at all I would have been taught about it in veterinary college
or graduate school or somewhere. But I had to admit, the concept was
intriguing - that energy medicine technologies could restore health by
enhancing or jump-starting the natural energetic processes in the body.
So I decided to try Phillip's magnet stuff on a patient of mine in grave
condition. After all, what harm could it do?
cancer - Brandy was a 9-year
Rottweiller. She was Patty's, her owner's, first “child” and took her
job as baby sitter to her 2-legged siblings, Karen and Timmy, very
seriously. Brandy had begun to limp on her right fore limb. At first
Patty thought Brandy had just sprained it, but the limp became more
pronounced at the days and weeks passed. Concerned, Patty brought Brandy
to me for an evaluation. The news was not good. I had to inform Patty
that bone cancer, osteosarcoma, was suspected. A bone biopsy confirmed
the diagnosis, and radiographs indicated that the cancer had already
spread to the lungs and other vital organs. Brandy's cancer was
In some cases, the
limb with the primary tumor can be amputated to make the dog more
comfortable, as the leg is extremely painful. Even this was not an
option for Brandy. She was a large, heavy dog and needed all 4 limbs to
get up and walk. As the weeks passed, Brandy's condition gradually
worsened. All of her body systems were affected by the spreading cancer.
Despite everything being done for her medically, Brandy's appetite
waned, her breathing became labored, she became incontinent, and she
could barely get up without assistance.
called the office. She had decided that she had no other option but to
put Brandy to sleep. Brandy still greeted her with a loving eye and a
wag in her tail (such as a Rottie has), but a 95-pound dog who cannot get
up and walk on its own presents too great a burden to be carried.
Without much optimism, I offered Patty the option of trying magnetic
therapy on Brandy. Patty was willing to try anything. Even if it was a
long shot, she hoped that the magnets could help her beloved Brandy. But
Patty was concerned that Brandy would not even sleep on the bed. It was
Brandy's habit to sleep on top of the air conditioning vents, sometimes
moving from vent to vent several times in a night.
To make a long story
short, using magnetic therapy Brandy's condition gradually improved over the next several days.
The first thing Patty noticed was that Brandy no longer moved from air
conditioning vent to vent to sleep. She seemed to seek out her magnetic
bed and slept on it even when it was not placed in preferred location.
Next, Patty noticed a change in Brandy's overall energy level. Within a
week, she was able to get up and walk unassisted. Gradually her
breathing improved. Ultimately, Brandy did lose her battle to cancer.
But Patty and her
family are grateful for more than a year's extension of quality life
therapy was able to give Brandy.
Now, back to Phillip - he had my undivided attention. And I wanted to
learn everything I could about energy medicine.
How Does Energy Medicine Work?
The short answer is - no one knows
exactly how the process works. But an incredible amount of research is
currently being devoted to the subject. We do know that both people and
animals are energy beings. Our bodies, the magnificent creation of a
master designer, are composed of 78 billion cells, each with its own
specialized task to perform. Like the battery within a car, energy
within each cell needs to be sufficient for that cell to perform its
job. Over 300 medical research studies involved using static magnets on
patients with a variety of medical conditions. Across the board, the
studies found that healing was accelerated in both bone and soft tissue
(that's your skin, muscle, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue),
commonly taking less than half the usual time.
A NASA-funded research
project showed that magnetic field therapy could not only prevent or
delay bone loss, but it could also be reversed. This means that energy
technologies can slow down or even reverse the process of osteoporosis,
a very common problem facing many women today.
How I Use Energy Medicine In My
As I gain more experience with
energy medicine products, I find myself using them on more and more
patients with an ever-widening array of ailments. When I first started
using energy medicine technologies in my practice, my main focus was
integrating it with traditional medicine for the treatment of
musculoskeletal disorders -herniated vertebral disks, hip dysplasia,
degenerative joint disease, fracture repair, etc. As my experience and
research turned up no negative side effects from its usage, I thought to
myself, “Why not try this on patients with problems involving other
systems?” The worse thing that can happen is nothing. Not even aspirin
can make that claim. A pharmaceutical agent is considered to be
effective if as few as 50% of patients show improvement. Research shows
that 87% of patients using magnetic therapy derive benefit. Now, I offer
energy modalities (primarily magnetic and far infrared therapies) to
patients with other types of conditions: after being hit by a car or
being a victim of a dog attack, following surgery to ease recovery, in
cancer patients, in patients with chronic gastrointestinal problems, in
patients with allergies, to name a few. Every day the list grows longer.
Magnetic and/or Infrared Therapy
How did I get involved with helping people?
The answer is simple. After
putting a pet on magnetic and/or far infrared therapy, the owners
commonly come back to me with the same query, “Do they make this stuff
for people?” This question always makes me chuckle because almost all of
the available products are designed for human use. I often find myself
thinking of new ways to modify the human products to fit the contours of
quadruped anatomy. So there was a natural evolution toward my helping
people with their discomforts. At some point I wondered if I would get
busted for practicing (human) medicine without a license. I was relieved
and amazed to learn that these wonderful technologies require no
prescription because of their lack of deleterious side effects.
Therefore, you don't have to be a doctor to prescribe them.
