To help professional and lay people alike broaden and deepen their understanding of a few principles of natural/holistic/integrative veterinary medicine. What I did as a traditional veterinarian was to prescribe drugs to lessen the symptoms of a disease, and occasionally treat the source of the problem.
As a natural veterinarian, I try to address underlying problems to prevent the symptoms from occurring. It isn’t always so cut and dry, so I have to use my best judgment to integrate the best of both worlds. There are hundreds of natural methods being used, and as a mentor of mine was fond of saying, ”there are many roads to town, and it doesn’t matter which one you take as long as you do make it to town.” What I feel can be offered with molecular minerals is the ability to very quickly get minerals inside the cell, enabling the cell to establish optimal chemical and electrical gradients, which then allow the cell to function as it was designed—which includes the ability to repair cellular damage. Sick animals are given medicine and it is assumed the cells will respond in a certain way. Unfortunately, “sick” cells may not respond at all, or they may respond completely opposite to how a normal cell would respond.
In my opinion, many "well" pets suffer from chronic mineral deficiencies, and when they get sick, these deficiencies are greatly exacerbated. As a former large animal veterinarian, I saw first hand the problems experienced by cattle, horses, and sheep eating an all-natural raw diet. These experiences helped me to recognize and treat mineral deficiencies in small animals.
In conclusion, I feel it is of vital importance to restore intracellular mineral levels. By doing so, I am enabling the cell to possibly heal itself, and I am increasing the probability the cells will respond desirably to traditional or non-traditional modalities. I focus on the cells because: healthy cells mean healthy tissues, healthy tissues mean healthy organs, healthy organs mean healthy organ systems, and healthy organ systems mean a healthy pet.
