I appreciate my partnership with Pet World Insider to help spread my message of holistic pet health to dog and cat owners on a world-wide basis.
Natural Pets TV is a new series of YouTube videos from Pet World Insider dedicated to the promotion of the health of our canine and feline friends. In episode three of Natural Pets TV: Dog Edition, Pet World Insider's Robert Semrow, Dr. Jodie Gruenstern, Natura Petz Organics' Heidi Nevala, and I team up to cover holistic approaches to medical treatments for our canine companions (sorry cats...you'll have your time soon).
The concept of holism simply means that a whole-body approach is taken when diagnosing and greating a patient. It's really how medicine should be praticed, as the body is a sum of many parts that must be kept optimally functioning for an overall healthy state to be maintained.
Conventional (Western) and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM, including Eastern approach like Chinese medicine, etc.) can all be considered holistic depending on the persepctive of the doctor providing the care.
If you're seeking a holistic perspective to your pet's health I recommend seeking consultation from a veterinarian who is a member of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA). See www.AHVMA.org to fina a practitioner in your area.
Make sure to give the video a thumbs up on YouTube and subscribe to Pet World Insider's YouTube channel to receive email notification of my contributions to the further Natural Pets TV Cat and Dog Editions.
