September is national Animal Pain Awareness month.
Pain is a top reason that ultimately ends the lives of many animals. Any animal at any age can experience pain for various reasons.
Knowing how to prevent pain before it starts and various options of how to reduce or eliminate existing pain can make a difference in the length of quality time your animal has.
Animals can exhibit pain in a variety of ways such as:
- Obvious signs of pain like limping, biting at their stomach, squinting an eye repeatedly, vocalizations that sound concerning
- Changes in eating or elimination habits
- Aggressive or unusual behavior
- Lethargy or inactivity
- Staring at you like they have something going on and want your help
It’s important to have a veterinarian check an animal out that may be in pain to see if there is a physical cause. There may be emotional factors contributing to the pain, too.
It’s ideal to be proactive to try to prevent pain in your animal. You may already be dealing with pain now or will be soon, so you would react to the situation.
Some great ways to prevent and address your animal’s pain are taking a close look at nutrition, muscle testing and communication.
Great health starts in the gut with proper nutrition.
- Keep in mind that grains and hot proteins like chicken and lamb can create inflammation in the body. While rotating proteins is ideal, not every dog and cat’s body can handle every protein often due to a fat imbalance, especially since chicken is in so many foods. Just like while raw can be great, not all shoudl be eating a raw diet. No matter what type of animal you have, the diet is the crucial foundation to their well-being. Even their water plays an important role. By using muscle testing, it helps to remove a lot of the trial and error of trying out foods and supplements, saving you time and money.
- First, you muscle test what the core diet should be such as type of diet, proteins, any veggies and fruits, then look at any needed supplements such as MSM, glucosamine, CBD and omega 3. Muscle testing will help you determine the correct supplements, amounts, along with their necessary duration. Some may be short-term or long-term. When you have the best core diet, it’s possible that your animal won’t need any supplements or very few, or a smaller amount or shorter duration will be needed. If your animal is in pain, you’ll want to check the diet more often to tweak as necessary.
Muscle testing can show you far more than just the diet.
- You can muscle test the modalities to be proactive or relieve pain. You can determine the best color for your animal. Keep in mind that red can aggravate pain. You can muscle test to see if methods such as energy work, EFT, flower essences, aromatherapy, homeopathy, massage, acupressure, acupuncture, and chiropractic will help your animal, along with their order of importance. Keep in mind that normally just several modalities will show up as being what your animal needs out of even a list of 15 methods.
- You can muscle test topical products, potential toxins, and environmental factors inside and outside the home to help prevent harm to your animal’s body. If they are in pain, you can hone in on what may be causing or adding to their discomfort so that you can remove that contributing factor.
Communication can make a world of difference.
- By speaking with your animal telepathically, you can talk to them regularly to ask them how they are feeling. This can help to prevent anything unexpected from popping up. When they do share something of concern, you can take action. It’s great to be able to ask your animal what they think is going on with them, how do they think you can help them, and if there is anything they want from you.
- You can use a technique to go inside your animal’s body to intricately feel what they are feeling. Using this advanced method, you can help detect what’s going on, especially if your animal is of the stoic nature and doesn’t want to share everything with you during a conversation. You can keep an eye on their body for any changes and act as needed.
While sometimes medication or surgery is necessary, a holistic approach can help you be proactive and address any pain issues, extending your animal’s quality of life.
Having as much time as you can possibly have with your animals is priceless.
