Dear Fellow Animal Lover,

I thought it would be helpful to provide some helpful excerpts from a wonderful book, Flower Essence Repertory - A Comprehensive Guide to North American and English Flower Essences for Emotional and Spiritual Well-Being by Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz.

 

This sort of information is very useful for dealing with our companion animals' emotional states and behavior problems.

"Animal Care with Flower Essences" --- "One of the most promising areas of flower essence use is with our friends in the animal kingdom. Many forms of therapy create suffering through animal testing. Flower essence therapy, by contrast, recognizes animals as soul beings, with feelings and experiences, who deserve our compassion and care."

Read many helpful articles about the various uses for Flower Essences -- including having dogs get along together: "If you are having any behavior problems with your pet or pets, I highly recommend that you investigate the possibility that Flower Essences can turn your aggressive, fearful pet into a happy, calm, gentle companion, and save you many hours of worry and work." -- "If You Aren't Using Flower Essences, You Are Missing the Best Part of Your Pet!!

"Perelandra is for everyone who wants to take charge of their health, their environment and their life in simple, new and extraordinarily effective ways. The problem we're having with this little "Welcome" page is that what Perelandra has to offer is so revolutionary, a decent description won't fit into one paragraph.

So, if your health, your environment and your life matter to you, I encourage you, I urge you—hell, I dare you—to click on Bill the frog ... to learn more about Perelandra and what we have to offer. Read our information and browse through our catalog—you can even read excerpts from the books we offer. This may be the most important click you'll ever make!"

Flower Essences "Flower essences help animals move through illness or injury with amazing speed and efficiency. And, using flower essences with animals is easy. All of the Perelandra Essences can be used with animals. For this, you'll definitely want to have the book, Flower Essences. It explains how to use kinesiology with animals and how to administer the essences. Also included are instructions on how to test animals during illness, for fleas, for behavioral changes, for injury, for overnight stays at the vet and for surgery. Machaelle also discusses flower essences and animal death in this book."

ETS Plus for Animals   [Emergency Trauma Solution]

"ETS Plus for Animals: This is a separate ETS Plus solution (ETS Plus for Animals) that is for the injuries, illnesses and other assorted traumas experienced by any animal—furred, feathered and scaled — including those thunderstorm freak outs and any other time your animal panics or experiences anxiety or fear. Use the guidelines and examples for ETS Plus for Humans (adults) for addressing your animal’s needs.

ETS Plus for Animals   [Emergency Trauma Solution]

"ETS Plus for Animals: This is a separate ETS Plus solution (ETS Plus for Animals) that is for the injuries, illnesses and other assorted traumas experienced by any animal—furred, feathered and scaled — including those thunderstorm freak outs and any other time your animal panics or experiences anxiety or fear. Use the guidelines and examples for ETS Plus for Humans (adults) for addressing your animal’s needs.

ETS Plus for Animals should not be diluted. To avoid contaminating the bottle of ETS Plus for Animals, do not give your animal its dosage directly from the dropper. Instead give the solution to your animal by putting a dose (10–12 drops) in your hand, a spoon, a bowl or a clean plastic syringe. If your animal insists on being enticed, put the 10–12 drops of ETS Plus for Animals on the tiniest amount of irresistible food as possible.

ETS Plus (for humans and animals) is environmental and security-device protected and is not affected by environmental pollution or travel security procedures. "

"... The bottled ETS Plus is preserved in brandy or distilled white vinegar..."

Flower Essences: Reordering Our Understanding and Approach to Illness and Health
"Flower essences help animals move through illness or injury with amazing speed and efficiency. And, using flower essences with animals is easy. All of the Perelandra Essences can be used with animals. For this, you'll definitely want to have the book, Flower Essences. It explains how to use kinesiology with animals and how to administer the essences.

Perelandra Microbial Balancing Program Manual
"If you have a companion animal, it's likely you've had to deal with a microbial issue at some point. When addressing any health issues with animals—minor or serious—Microbial Balancing should be considered. The Manual explains how to surrogate test the program for mammals, fish, fowl and reptiles. And it includes an inspiring story of how the Microbial Balancing Program brought our cat, Gus, through a tough infection. (Also in Video 5: Perelandra Microbial Balancing Program—The Workshop and in Voices 2000, a Perelandra staff member tells how Microbial Balancing was the answer to her dog's very serious seizures.) NOTE: Before using this program with your animals, it is important to first learn to use the program for yourself."

Perelandra Paper: Nature Healing Conings for Animals
"This paper tells us how to set up a good healing coning for injured or sick animals. It is especially important for the folks who are considering putting their animals into MAP or have already done so to read this paper. MAP is a health care system for humans, not animals. The Nature Healing Coning is the equivalent health care answer for animals. NOTE: This paper is included in MAP."

Perelandra Paper: What is Nature Intelligence?
"This paper includes a discussion on nature intelligence specifically as it applies to the animal kingdom. It explains important differences between human intelligence and nature intelligence and is particularly valuable information for those with companion animals in their lives."

Perelandra Voices
"Several of our annual newsletters include letters and articles from folks who have used Perelandra processes with animals, with great success. These articles never go out of date. We think you'll find reading about others' experiences to be very supportive as well as informative. Voices issues 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2000 – 2005 include articles about animals."

Got fleas?
"Tick and flea season isn't fun for anyone with fur. As the MBP Balancing Solutions because available, many members of the Perelandra staff began to notice a decrease in the number of fleas and ticks found on their companion animals. A tip: Some animals will take the Solutions directly from your hand. For the more finicky types, try mixing each Solution with a small amount of food or broth. For additional information, see Health Watch 10: Flea and Tick Resistance for Animals.

"My dog had seizures. For the last eight months he has been on the MBP Immune, Lymphatic and Nervous Systems Balancing Solutions and there have been no seizures." — I.P., Clinton, NJ
