Gypsy is doing well. In fact he is doing great. He continues to recover his strength. He loves being at the Inn, greeting guests and their dogs, taking walks with Joe, head of our housekeeping department, hanging out with our staff when they are eating lunch. It is hard to get him to go home – Murphy, on the other hand is committed to her dinner and will run home.
We are asked how we did this – heal Gypsy. We did not heal Gypsy – we have provided him with a healing environment, both externally and internally.
Below are brief recitation of his “treatment” that is best summarized as follows -
First, we don’t know what we are actually dealing with. We were out of town and did not see Gypsy before he was taken to the veterinarians. His diagnosis of angiosarcoma or hemangiosarcoma was inferential. There was no biopsy other than to determine the nature of pericardial fluid. We treated his affliction in every way we knew beginning with consulting with veterinarians who believed the best action was no invasive surgery, chemo therapy or radiation.
We had already began what we call “energy work” in Manitoba, Canada, at Matlock, on Lake Winnipeg. Here is a natural flow of earth’s energy and working in Manitoba, some 2,000 miles from Mendocino (or Rohnert Park) was as if we we were there with Gypsy. The work starts with a short meditation and continues with movements flowing with the energies around the worker. This work can sometimes look like Tai Chi.
The veterinarians at Animal Care Center in Rohnert Park monitored Gypsy’s blood count and transfused him from a happy lab. (Perhaps it was the boisterous lab’s blood that began the healing process. Or just the lab, himself.) Dr. Kelley Hayes at the Animal Care Center suggested giving Gypsy Yunnan Baiyoa a herbal preparation to help stop the hemorrhaging. She sought out a source for the compound and began treating Gypsy and sent him home.
Gypsy arrived home on a Sunday night. He would not eat and we asked that he be fed fotomaki rolls which are wrapped in a seaweed, nori. We arrived the following Tuesday.
When we got home we added capsules of dried algae to his diet and continued serving him nori rolls. Nori contains porphyran which has been shown to cause the death of cancer cells. (We had read elsewhere that Nori is a brown seaweed and believed that it contained alginic acid which helps the body to remove toxins. Nori is a red seaweed. Red seaweeds are the source of carrageenen and agar agar.) Algae are also an important emergency food. Spirulina contains compounds which help the body extract toxins (similar to brown seaweed) and in a variety of ways assists in killing cancer cells. The particular brand we are using is BioPreparation for pets from Optimum Choices. If you are interested, you can check our their web site at BioPreparation_for_animals The founder of the company believes that the anti-cancer properties are due to realignment and re-balancing of the body through the metabolism of the algae.
There is no way to know which one or which combination of efforts are helping Gypsy. We do know that he is much, much better, that he has exceeded every veterinarian’s expectations and that he continues to grow stronger and, by the way, hungrier.
To summarize, we did everything we could – Joan and I intended a healing environment – as normal as it could be, enhanced with the highest quality whole foods. We encourage his play with us and Murphy and with other dogs and our cats. We let him set the pace when we walk. We regularly check to make sure that there is no internal bleeding – and we have not found any symptoms. He has our attention, conditioned by our intent and energies flow to him. We do not, however, obsess. We both continue with all our other work. We are very grateful for the lessons and for his company.
