So often my clients ask what wellness programs I follow for my animals. I thought that it might be interesting to introduce some of the animals that share my life, and write about the nutrition, alternative therapies, housing, equipment and training involved with keeping all of them healthy and happy.
I live with dogs, cats, horses, goats, chickens, turtles, fish and a hamster. I also travel throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia working with animals and their people. You can visit my business at www.carrieeastman.com for more information about my work. However, this journal is all about the health program we follow at home, and the process of customizing a program for each of the animals here.
My family and animals all follow a very holistic program for rehabilitation, health maintenance and performance enhancement. I use several product lines for nutrition. We all use homeopathy, flower essences, energy work, radionics, bio energy balancing, defense physiology, Reiki, TTouch, muscle testing, reflex points, surrogate testing and applied kinesiology. I have explored many different training methods and therapies and evaluated lots of equipment in our search for wellness and happiness. I consider the animals my teachers and partners on this journey.
The goats are the most recent addition to our family and a species I haven’t worked with before, so I’ve been on a quest for the best health program for goats. Mimosa (picture above) and Guy are Tennessee Fainting Goats, and yes, when startled, they do indeed tip over! Mimosa is pregnant and will be kidding (giving birth) any day now. Hopefully she will have doelings (girl babies) to stay here and start building our goat herd.
So, welcome to my (our) blog, and stay tuned for more photos and the goat health saga…
