Jill Dailey, founder of The Dailey Method, is one of my inspirations. I am so excited to be a guest author on her website.

For those who are unfamiliar: "The Dailey Method is a full body workout that combines ballet barre work, core conditioning, yoga, and orthopedic exercises designed to strengthen, tone, and lengthen the entire body to produce quick physical results and balance in the body" (TheDaileyMethod.com). 

Balancing health and fitness

As I stepped into the gym for my daily workout, I looked around and saw how many people were staring at screens, listening to music, or lost in thought. I imagined many of the thoughts were focused on the end of the workout rather than a moment by moment experience of the workout. Some people looked at their clocks, maybe they were counting down the time remaining before the workout ended. Sadly, people didn’t look like they were enjoying themselves; I didn’t see people laughing while on the treadmill. I used to be one of these people. Exercise was a means to an end. It was a way I kept a lean figure, reduced stress, and maintained muscle mass. There were many days I didn’t feel like going to the gym, but I did anyways, because I was addicted to fitness. I loved how it made me feel as my brain’s happy chemicals flooded my body.

Yochabel's Wisdom: Hospice at Home

I am thrilled to have this opportunity to share my precious Yochabel's story as a guest author for www.consciouscat.net, with Ingrid King. This is the fifth of a series of blog posts over the next few months.

Cancer changes lives

When Yochabel was diagnosed with a bladder tumor both of our lives changed. I felt weighed down by a daunting fear that I was racing against time while the tumor might be growing faster than we could intervene. The ultrasound showed the tumor was one third of the size of her bladder. While the specialist told me these tumors grow quickly, I couldn’t know for sure how quickly without ongoing testing. What I knew for sure was that Yochabel’s world was shrinking, and our normal day to day routine was changing.

Non-surgical treatment for feline resorptive lesions and chronic periodontal disease in a cat with chronic kidney disease

YochabelIVCJournalLYSI am so pleased to be published in the Innovative Veterinary Care Journal. Yochabel, who transitioned over the Rainbow Bridge at age 20, was the best cat and patient. She had many health issues that responded well to integrative care and application of the healing wheel. We avoided surgery on her otherwise infected and painful mouth by using a periodontal ointment, DentaPet by Hope Science.

Continuous improvement

Yochabel is truly a miracle in many ways. I watched her health improve with each month we cared for and loved each other. My health also improved. The unconditional love of a pet companion can heal us from the inside out. Over time, I added nutritional supplements to her regimen to support her joints, kidneys, and immune system. Yochabel’s homemade, nutrient and moisture rich species specific diet, her nutritional supplements, and her integrative health team were giving us more time together despite her age. She had more energy, and she moved with much less effort.

Biomagnetism and pet health

yochabellightyoursparkleWritten by Casey Hersch, MSW, LCSW

I discovered Biomagnetism throughout my journey with Crohn's disease and it changed my life. Because I had experienced so much healing from Biomagnetism, when Yochabel, my senior cat, was diagnosed with bladder cancer, I included Biomagnetism in our integrative treatment plan. 

Overview of Biomagnetism

Discovered by Dr Isaac Goiz-Duran, MD, medical Biomagnetism helps balance and heal the mind, body, and spirit using magnets. It is a non invasive technique which uses negative and positive polarity in pairs of magnets. Biomagnetism detects pH imbalances of acidity and alkalinity in organs and tissues of the body.

Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique and Pet Health

YochFavLYSWritten by Casey Hersch, MSW, LCSW

Yochabel's Health and NAET

I discovered Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET) when I was critically ill with Crohn's disease. It changed my life. When Yochabel, my 17 year old cat, came to live with me, she had many health issues. Applying my philosophy of integrating healing approaches, Yochabel received treatments from many of the same techniques that helped my healing. Many veterinarians are trained in NAET, which is a non invasive adjunct to treatment. Yochabel's immune system was compromised and NAET boosted her immune system, enhanced her quality of life, and eliminated some of the miserable symptoms she had such as dry itchy skin. When she was diagnosed with bladder cancer, NAET was one of my first choices for helping Yochabel.

My Girl is a Foodie

It was our first day together. I was excited and nervous at the same time, uncertain how Yochabel would adjust to her new home. As she maneuvered awkwardly in her bed, favoring her right side, and slowly eased herself down into a sitting position, her eyes remained locked with mine. As I passed by, doing my usual chores, her little paws had a life of their own as they reached for me, brushing my leg as I walked by. She obviously wanted something…
