The following is a compendium (although not sure how “brief” it really is!) of information and resources of various topics I am personally interested in and present on this blog. Check back as it will be updated as I come across new (and what I think is valid) information.
Carnivore Health Information
The Healing Crisis in Dogs – some information from Dr. Kim Bloomer’s website
Raw Meaty Bones – Essential Food (link to pdf file)
Dogs: The Omnivore-Carnivore Question (article by Dr. Jeannie Thomason & Dr. Kim Bloomer in Natural Horse Magazine, Vol 11, Issue 3)
Musings on Raw Feeding – another article by Dr. Kim Bloomer on carnivore feeding
First Aid for Your Dog – by Dr. Kim Bloomer
Course Work/Continuing Education
American Council of Animal Naturopathy – technically a certifying council for those with degrees in animal naturopathy, however the course work here is phenomenal (I should know – I wrote/co-wrote the equine courses! :)). There is a list of practitioners here.
Ecology & Environment
SoilMinerals.com & Michael Astera – I used his work rather extensively (giving him credit of course) in my equine nutrition book. I was already familiar with the work of Dr. Albrecht and Michael Astera brings that work into current-day perspective.
O2Compost Systems & Training – I wish I had this compost system myself…hopefully someday. But understanding the composting process – this works and Peter Moon is basically “Mr. Compost”. Highly recommended, even if you start small.
The Four Bodies and Essential Oils – an article by Dr. Mary Hardy
The Blood Brain Barrier – by Dr. David Stewart
Do Essential Oils Contain Proteins, Enzymes, Vitamins, or Hormones? – by Dr. David Stewart
Chemistry and Biology of Boswellia Essential Oil (Evidence-Based CAM, Vol 2013)
Inhibition of MRSA by Essential Oils (Flavour and Fragrance Journal, 2008)
Goethean Science & Phenomenology
Schumacher College and The Nature Institute – to my knowledge these are the only two institutions in the world that actively teach Goethean science & phenomenology. Schumacher is in England and The Nature Institute is in New York State.
David Seamon – I consider him a friend (although we’ve as yet not met face to face); he is a long time student of Goethean science and phenomenology, and is an environment-behavior researcher and Professor of Architecture at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. I highly respect his work and writings.
Francesco De Giorgio | José Maria Schoorl Zooanthropology – Francesco and José are working diligently to give horses and all animals a voice as sentient beings. Their philosophies and mine align much of the time.
(The following can apply to all species.)
I highly recommend these books:
Immune Doggy by Aleksandra Mikic
How to Immunize Your Dog Without Vaccines by Aleksandra Mikic
A long video but well worth watching:
Vaccination as a Cause of Illness (in animals, but applies to humans as well)
