Giving fleas the flick naturally

Giving Fleas the Flick Naturally

I have been working with homeopathic medicines on animals for 10 years and there are a few things that have become very clear to me in that time.  Firstly is that a strong, healthy animal cannot play host to parasites, worms, fleas, ticks, etc.  The second and probably the most interesting is that most animals in today's society are toxic.

From vaccinations to medications to pollution and pesticides our animals are being exposed to poisons at every turn.  It is no surprise that we are seeing a rise in disease (meaning that the body is at dis-ease, not balanced), presenting it's self in the form of severe itch, serious illness and general ill health.

We are told that our itchy pet is allergic to fleas so we put more chemicals on it, tipping the animal over the edge further.  In the process of doing this we are not only giving our dog more toxins, but ourselves and our families as well.

The problem has been that we need the fleas to go from our pets and our families.  But there is no point 'burning down the house to get rid of the ants' as it were.  There has to be a better answer.

This has been my quest for the past few years.  My clients ask me what we can do homeopathically to 'get rid of fleas'. 

Homeopathy doesn't work like that so I had to restructure my thinking from what can we do to 'get rid of fleas' to what can we do to build up the system of the body to make it 'naturally repel fleas'.  I have always known that a healthy, strong body cannot host fleas and this was my starting point.

In my business, I assist my clients to firstly detox the poisons out of their animals and then provide them with a tonic that they can use daily in the first instance to really build the immune system and then drop treatment back to weekly.

The results have been amazing.  Not only have the fleas packed up and moved off  - probably to a less healthy animal, but also problems like arthritis pain, skin health and energy levels have been improved dramatically.

In these times of heightened awareness of chemicals in our lives, we are all searching for a way to live without doing more damage to ourselves, our families, our pets and our environment.  Looking to alternative medicines, like homeopathy is a great place to start.
