VITALISM IN LIVESTOCK HEALTH MANAGEMENT: AN INTRODUCTION TO VETERINARY HOMEOPATHY
FRIDAY OCTOBER 30 | 10AM – 12:30PM MT | FULL
Homeopathy is a self-contained system of medicine. Practiced at its best, it is far more than prescribing little white pellets to “fix” a symptom of concern. The art-and-science of homeopathy considers hygiene (including diet, environment, and lifestyle) as an integral component and influencer of health and wellness. Homeopathic medicines are used in conjunction with species-appropriate hygiene practices to dynamically catalyze the return to vibrant health.
Susan Beal, DVM, an experienced holistic veterinarian and homeopath, will open the workshop with a brief overview of the manner in which livestock management practices can influence the health of individual animals, flocks and herds on the farm and ranch, as well as influence the health of the larger ecosystem.Her presentation will then explore homeopathy basics, including discussion of the dynamics of disease, obstacles that impact vital health and the response to treatment, and the patterns of responses to treatment. There will be instruction on how to give a homeopathic medicine, the timing of doses, and ways to assess the response. Concepts will be illustrated using both real case studies and “paper cases” drawn from actual field situations. The principles and symptoms discussed will cover all species, and examples will include human and beast, as Dr Beal will present a variety of situations commonly found in all aspects of farming and husbandry.
Dr. Beal stresses the importance of remembering that homeopathy’s basic concepts and approaches are applicable to all species, making it an approachable and economical solution in a wide range of situations. Farmers and ranchers (and clinicians) who seriously study and apply the concepts of homeopathy have found it to be a practical, cost-effective method of treatment, with no withdrawals on meat, milk, and eggs and no resistance to the medicines.
This session is appropriate for all animal species, two and four legged, feathered or furred. It is specifically geared for those who have little or no experience with the art and science of homeopathy.
There will be time for questions and answers in this interactive workshop, but please don’t expect to have individual health care needs addressed in this session.
