Jasper is a four year old purebred golden
Retriever, spayed female with a mellow disposition. She exhibits no
behavior challenges and is well behaved when left indoors by herself for
long periods. She was diagnosed with Aspergillus. Jasper's condition
began with a runny nose and eye, right side. Bad smell from nose. Jasper
has a history of skin problems, infections, cut paws and paw chewing.
Homeopathic Sepia stopped the paw chewing for some time but it has
recently returned. Jasper has had the standard vaccinations and has a
history of antibiotic and steroids treatment. Both Jasper and her human
companion Carol suffer from depressive episodes. Jasper alternates
between depression/withdrawal and engaging, euphoric behavior. Because
Carol is a Physician, and often on call at a hospital there isn't a
routine for Jasper to settle in to. Jasper has a strong emotional bond
with Carol and seems to worry and become anxious at times. The
inconsistency of Carol's work schedule adds to Jaspers anxiety.
Intuitive impressions (spiritual, emotional) arrived at through
telepathic communication. Extreme emotional bonding with Carol. Jasper
feels what Carol feels and experiences anxiety along with Carol. Jasper
picks us Carol's concern for her patients and is attuned to Carol while
she is at work picking up the concern and pressure that Carol
experiences at those times. Ability to breathe in life is obstructed
from emotional pain and anxiety. She doesn't understand what she is
feeling emotionally, so diverts her attention from the emotional
suffering with paw chewing ( possible allergic component) and breathing
Treatment: Jasper was treated with Red
Chestnut, Blackberry, Evening Primrose, St John's Wort, and Pennyroyal
(4 wks) and then with Pansy, Water Hemlock and Date Palm ( 1mo.)
Results: (12-15-95) After three and a half
weeks on the essences Jasper sneezed one evening and expelled a large
dark chunk from her right nostril. She has been free of nasal discharge
and odor for about six weeks and is much less depressed.
Most recently (2-1-96) Jasper is being treated
with Homeopathic Silica and a slight nasal discharge is present again.
We are feeling that this is a deep level symptom release due to the
action of the homeopathy and are hopeful that Jasper will work through
the symptom profile once again and be completely well. We are monitoring
her progress closely. We have discontinued essence treatment until the
homeopatic treatment is complete. We will then resume.
7-27-96 Jasper finished Homeopathic treatment
and is doing well, no nasal discharge.
