A Thank you to the AHVM Foundation, for providing brilliant veterinarians the platform to utilize the knowledge and expertise collected, and to support their integrative endeavours to strive for better treatments for our beloved family members. There is nothing more worthy of our support.
Shelby the Dog (Kidney infections) (letter form guardian)
Integrative medicine has been a life-sustaining blessing for Shelby.
As a result of scarring from several bouts with kidneys stones, Shelby’s kidneys became an ideal environment for infections. She has had countless E. Coli infections.
When treated with conventional medicine, the infections would disappear… only to return just a few months later.
Since being treated with integrative medicine, the amount of time Shelby is infection free has increased dramatically. She experiences many months without infection, thus improving her quality of life.
Nutritional supplements have given her immune system the additional support it needs to combat most of these infections. When she does get another infection, antibiotics are able to clear it from her system. And, because Shelby does not need to take antibiotics frequently, they are still effective when they are prescribed for her.
Integrative medicine has been the perfect mix of traditional and alternative therapies which has allowed Shelby to have a good quality of life.
At this writing, through integrative medicine and God’s grace, Shelby has just celebrated her fourteenth birthday!
This is just one of the amazing stories in the world of utilizing “holistic medicine” for quality of life
We are asking for your help this month.
The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation is the only organization specifically dedicated to supporting research in holistic veterinary medicine.
The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation (AHVMF) is a group of dedicated integrative veterinarians who are pioneers in the advancement of complementary and alternative veterinary medicine (CAVM). They are the only organization supporting education, scholarships, and research and integrative holistic veterinary medicine.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association's (AVMA) 2012 U.S. Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook, there are 84,914,000 companion animal (dog, cat, bird, horse) owners in the United States! If only 1% or approximately one million of these people donate just $12 (equivalent to $1 a month-or less than a cup of coffee a day) the AMERICAN HOLISTIC VETERINARY MEDICAL FOUNDATION (AHVMF) would have $12,000,000 this year available to help our beloved pets with integrative research and education!!! Just in time for tax refunds …
We ask you to make a donation as little as $12 for the year which equals just $1 dollar a month (the computer just cannot actually charge $1 dollar per month) Of course any donation would be appreciated. We want this work to be continued as it will change “health” possibilities as we know it.
The big news is that
This month from March 23- March 30 all donations will be tripled by Dr Karen Becker of Healthy Pets at Mercola.com:
