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.

Yochabel’s nine lives: life gets better with age

"Yochabel came to live with me at 17 years of age. She was in poor health; I thought I might only have days with her. She could barely walk a few inches without needing to rest. She had kidney disease, infected teeth, asthma, dermatitis, tremors, and severe arthritis. A diet of exclusively dry kibble had been hard on her aging body, and she was overweight. I couldn’t help but blame her past nine lives for her deterioration."

How do you like to remember your cat companions?

"While it is really difficult to lose a cat companion, most of us would still endure the pain of loss in exchange for the memories, love, and infinite gifts we have been given from our friends."

"There are many ways to honor and remember our cat companions–this is individual and between you and your cat."

I like to focus on who I am because of my cats

Dr. Loretta Breuning and Light Your Sparkle on Chronic pain and Illness

Written by Casey Hersch, MSW, LCSW

Dr Loretta Breuning and Light Your Sparkle on Chronic illness and Pain

I had a great time with Dr Breuning as a guest on her podcast.  We discussed chronic illness and pain.  Dr Breuning is the author of numerous self-help books including Habits of a Happy Brain, The Science of Positivity, and her more recent book, Tame Your Anxiety.  She is the founder of the Inner Mammal Institute. She asks me about my personal experience with chronic illness, how ballroom dance impacts my healing, the healing wheel, and the dimensions (physical, emotional, and passion). She offers her expertise in how to create new circuits in the brain by connecting pain and relapses with illness to positive experiences.  We touch on the culture of illness and the "sick role" and how it serves positive and negative psychological benefits.  She emphasizes the importance of building on the branches and circuits that we already have in our brain from our life---these "strengths" help us overcome challenges and live a meaningful life.  The idea of using "strengths" to build resiliency is at the heart of my own healing and philosophy.  We discuss practical suggestions which are easy to use and they work!
