In July, 2018, the FDA began an investigation
into reports of canine dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in pets eating
certain foods, many "grain-free" labeled, that contained a high proportion
of peas, lentils, other legume seeds (pulses), and/or potatoes in various
forms (whole, flour, protein, etc.) as main ingredients. We have heard that
some large pet food manufacturers and some traditional Western veterinarians
are recommending pet parents avoid "BEG" diets—Boutique companies,
Exotic ingredients or Grain-free diets. Before you panic, read
our truly holistic perspective in previous newsletters:
The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent
danger to your pet is — STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our
"wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of
food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is
with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower
percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:
If you are a regular reader of our
Freedom From Illness newsletter, you already know our basic
It is better to be holistically
proactive, rather than medically reactive. One may be able
to avoid some degenerative conditions and neutralize symptoms from
those that do come, thereby decreasing pain, suffering and even save money.
Do not wait for symptoms to show up
or blow up before taking holistic action. It is estimated
that once symptoms show up, 50% or more degeneration has already
occurred, thus making resolving the issue harder and more expensive.
supplementing symptoms. Instead, nourish ALL the glands
and organs of the WHOLE body. See what the body/brain can do first,
rather than take the "bomb" approach with drugs and potent isolated
supplements, which may produce side
effects and toxicity.

our globe, there are many self-directed holistic action steps one can
take, no matter what the source of the

newsletters (dating back to 2014):
This issue is dedicated to our mental
and emotional bodies. Did you know one cannot be in despair
the same time one is experiencing gratitude?
This exercise was created by psychologist
Martin Seligman. He is considered an expert on depression and happiness
and has been called the "father of Positive Psychology." As one of the
preeminent psychologists of the 20th century, he is Director of the
University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center, Zellerbach Family
Professor of Psychology in the Penn Department of Psychology and
Director of the Penn Master of Applied Positive Psychology program
(MAPP). Basically, this is a gratitude exercise one practices daily.
Here is the simple Three Good Things exercise:
Every night, just before you go to bed,
think back on your day.
Think of three (3) good things that went
well for you that day.
Write them down. Reflect on each of them.
Remember to do the third step, as this is
important in grounding the experience in the physical. Here are some
questions to ask yourself:
What did I accomplish today that I am
Who did I help today? (act of good,
generosity or random act of kindness)
What big or small important deadline did I
What lingering task did I complete?
Did anyone praise me, my work or
compliment me today?
Did I bring a smile to someone's face
What good did I see in the world today?
It is said if one repeats this exercise for
21 consecutive days, a positive habit forms to neutralize our
human tendencies to always dwell on the negative. This would be a good
way to alleviate despair and depression in these uncertain times.
Russell has done this to neutralize his tendency to go into a depression
from his mTBI (mild Traumatic Brain Injury). It helps keep him off
medication and decreases his need for
Although this Three Good Things exercise is meant to be
done at night, reflecting on the day's events, here is an example of how
that might work if Russell wrote down three good things based on his day

Independent research to verify claims—in
the last presidential election we saw a lot of misinformation
spread via bogus ads and social media, preying on people's emotions
and fears. We continue to see this with the coronavirus, especially
on social media. Now, people have become more discerning and are
researching health claims before believing and forwarding on
Making one's health a priority—booking
one's social calendar 5/7 nights per week is not healthy. Eating out
every day or every other day, is not very healthy. Sleeping less
than 7-8 hours a night, 5 days per week is not immune-enhancing. We
all know the ramifications of the above unhealthy habits, yet we
lack the motivation to change. Now we have motivation to make our
health the #1 priority in our life. We are making more
immune-enhancing and life-sustaining choices.
Empowering self-care—with video
calls and telemedicine appointments, we are receiving self-care tips
to remain healthy from our healthcare professionals. So instead of
relying on a doctor/vet for everything, we are empowering ourselves

making time for exercise, being outdoors, walking, bicycling, yoga,
meditation, reflecting, writing in a journal, keeping in touch with
family and friends, etc. These are all immune-enhancing and
Remember, the decisions you make for you
and your family (including furry children) today, may affect the rest of
your life.Be bold by taking
holistic action BEFORE symptoms show up or blow up. Make
immune-enhancing and life-sustaining decisions to support and balance
your entire immune system up to its optimum potential.
