Is your dog scratching for apparently no reason? Is your vet stumped? His energy might be off balance.
When the cause of allergies isn’t apparent (diet or environmental allergy, virus, etc.) the conventional veterinarian often can’t find a cure. A good veterinarian should be unwilling to merely give antihistamines or the more dangerous steroids to stop itching anywhere on the body. Instead, he or she should consider the dog’s energy.
Once you realize there is an underlying vibrational imbalance (Qi, Quantum field, bioforce field, source field) that causes most problems (not specific allergens) you realize that you many never find the external source of his allergy symptoms. Using the many different holistic approaches to resolve that energy imbalance allows your individual dog to self heal and no longer be itchy.
Something to help you be patient as you try different healing approaches is this perspective. Itching the skin is actually a good thing. No dog dies from skin problems. If the vibrational field is healthy enough to produce skin symptoms instead of more serious illnesses (diabetes, Cushing’s, etc) this is good.
There are several ways to begin treating your dog. One is to begin feeding a raw meat and pureed vegetable diet (commercial frozen or best yet from ingredients at the level you eat – hopefully from local organic farms). Or you could begin with working with an integrative veterinarian who could better analyze the energy field imbalance. Check out the AHVMA website for info on how to find an integrative veterinarian.
In the case of ear infections, working with an integrative veterinarian can also be beneficial. The goal of healing the ears is to rebalance the entire energy field of your dog, and he or she should be able to guide you in the right direction — especially if you’ve already tried several temporary treatment like sweet almond oil, Rescue Remedy, Olive oil, coconut oil, neem oil, garlic and mullien, SSSting Stop, Vitamin C, Fish Oils, and improving his diet.
I often find that daily Reiki offered to dogs with ear problems resolves them after several months. TTouch moves can decrease itchiness, as can acupressure, and the books (youtube videos, articles) on these can certainly give you a few tips. One TTouch technique is to use ace bandages to “swaddle” the dog, so the itching stops (google: how to put on an anxiety wrap). Because of the eye discharge and itchiness, I would suggest you take some classes in TTouch, Reiki, acupressure, healing touch for animals as then you will be more effective than merely reading books or watching Utube.
As for Rescue Remedy, flower essences from all the companies (Bach, Spirit Essences, Green Hope Essences, Anaflora and more) are totally safe, so you could begin with Rescue Remedy, then order some skin, allergy or itchy essence combinations from one of those companies. This would be a temporary help, maybe until the fresh food balances the energy flow.
Bonus tip: Many people do not realize that using collars can cause a lot of itchy feet and faces, so one first step is to be sure you are walking your dog with a harness where the leash attaches at the chest. Dr. Peter Dobias has written a lot on his discovery that not only do collars cause twisted neck problems (sometimes chiropractic will resolve ear problems), they also cause low thyroid and itchiness in many dogs in his practice.
