How a passion for animals and natural health led to a company that formulates holistic remedies for parasitic infections, including heartworm and Lyme.
No one wants to hear that their beloved animal companion has heartworm, Lyme disease or any other parasitic infection. And most people assume that only a regime of harsh chemical-based treatments, complete with potentially serious side effects, will heal their furry friends.
But there’s another way, thanks to Narayan Khalsa and Akash Kapil Khalsa, the founders of Effective Pet Wellness. The two men, who share a passion for animals and natural health, launched their company in 2012 as a way to provide safe, natural alternatives to conventional treatment regimes for parasitic diseases in dogs, cats and horses.
“Our personal health and well being, as well as that of our animals, has always been one of our highest priorities,” says Narayan, who is also a natural hoof care practitioner. “Akash’s healing practice (he’s a clinical herbalist) has aligned him with targeted and effective organic herbal formulas, while my own expertise in holistic animal management brings more of a totality to the company. Our mission is to be a transformative force in the domestic animal world by shedding light on current detrimental practices, and providing holistic care that brings results.”
Effective Pet Wellness offers a range of safe, organic, non-toxic products, including treatment kits for Lyme disease, heartworm and other organisms. The kits feature the company’s two hallmark herbal formulas, Pet Clear and Clearacell. “Their uniqueness lies in the synergy of their ingredients,” says Narayan. “When used in conjunction, these two products safely eliminate parasitic infections from the blood, tissues, organs, and cells. This includes heartworms, Lyme, tapeworms, mange and distemper, as well as a number of other infections.” Clearacell works by breaking open affected cells and exposing the infection. Pet Clear then works to eliminate the infection. “No chemical application can penetrate so deep. Chemicals are inherently rejected by the body tissues, which means they’re not only toxic, but also not totally effective.”
One of Effective Pet Wellness’ goals is to help as many animals as possible. “Creating and maintaining intimate relationships with our client family, in order to provide the greatest support possible, is something we value most,” says Narayan. “We are also working with a number of no-kill shelters by providing product for very difficult cases. We often reach out to others who selflessly serve the animal kingdom yet are in need of product and information in these challenging times.
“Our greatest joy in the work we do is hearing about the triumphs of animals who have moved from suffering to wellness. We love to receive testimonials, and are getting more and more every day. As we often deal with very chronic illnesses, the testimonials are often quite amazing. They are our greatest inspiration.”
