Shattering The Matrix

We Sleep No More!

ECZEMA is a very common complaint which causes considerable discomfort for many dogs. It is also a disease which causes considerable frustration for both owners and veterinary surgeons.

Naturally clients often become dissatisfied when they have to return for the same treatment and with the certain knowledge that in a few months or even weeks they will be back again.

Eczema is a complex condition with many possible causes

One of the main contributing factors is hypersensitivity to the bite of the dog flea. Unfortunately many dogs still develop eczema when the flea problem is eliminated. Other contributing factors such as molting, sensitivity to various dyes and fabrics, chemicals in washes and flea collars.

There remains a large number of cases seen where the cause is suspected to be allergic but the precise contributing factor has not been isolated. Recently a number of these difficult cases were collected for evaluation of a new concept of treatment.

It has been known for a long time that fats were an essential part of any animal's diet. Without fat the skin becomes dry and scaly, and the hair tends to break. It is only recently that the complex role of various fatty acids and their derivatives has begun to be understood.

Certain substances capable of producing active skin inflammations and edema have been isolated in increased quantities in patients with eczema. Corticosteroids block the metabolism of some of these factors, hence their success in eliminating the redness and itchiness in eczema cases. The long-term use of corticosteroids can produce undesirable side effects. Every veterinary surgeon would be delighted not to have to rely on these to alleviate eczemas.

One of the essential fatty acids in the diet of animals is linoleic acid. Unfortunately it seems that the form of this acid derived from land plants and animals may produce a substance that can cause allergic responses in some animals during its metabolism.

Linoleic acid, derived from aquatic plants and animals, on the other hand produces a substance during its metabolism that inhibits these allergic responses. Such a substance is known as EPA (being the initials of its chemical components). In experiments on a number of dogs suffering from chronic eczema, one group was given no supplements, one group was given a supplement containing zinc, and another group a combination of Vitamin E, linoleic acid and EPA.

A dramatic response was noted in the last group; more than 95 percent of the dogs stopped scratching and appeared brighter and more active. This response was maintained and became more obvious the longer the supplement was continued.

Care must be taken in applying these findings to all cases of eczema

It is probable that not all cases of eczema are not of allergic origins, but in cases that have proved refractory to other treatments, this dietary supplement may well prove useful. The dosage and type of preparation chosen is all-important and should always be used under the guidance of your veterinary surgeon.

(The meditation starts about 20 & 1/2 minutes into the video when the music starts - but Annette's music is much louder - so be prepared to turn down the volume if needed.) Annete, "Namaste & welcome everyone. We are going to do a Oneness meditation, which is an energy transfer that helps you connect with your Divine Self - the real You. Your Divine Self is the Divine Intelligence of the Heart, the Consciousness, the God Force within you continually spiraling & seeking to awaken within you. The Oneness meditation helps your awakening to your Divine Self, that Higher Consciousness within you. But how you experience your Divine Self is completely up to you. Its up to you what kind of relationship you want to have with your Divine Self, for it is unique to each person & separate from any religion or philosophy. Awakening to your Divine Self is a process of the mind, but a process in which Divine Intervention is needed to help you ultimately transcend the mind to begin experiencing your Self. The Divine Intervention is pure Divine Grace working inside of you - your connection between you & God. This is the Divine Energy flowing in the Oneness meditation & Deeksha - a Divine Energy which has the keys and Divine Intelligence to unlock your heart. So whatever you are experiencing in this meditation, just relax & lovingly be with what you are experiencing. Your meditation can change from moment to moment - but the whole process is one of Divine Love working in you. The Oneness Awakening Deeksha helps you connect with your Divine Self inside your heart. The Deeksha starts as soon as the music begins, so close your eyes....and the Oneness Meditation starts as soon as the music changes & continues for the remainder of this Divine transmission (this is where you look into Annett's eyes. The music in both the Deeksha & Oneness meditation have that Divine Energy embedded in them that will be helping you Awaken...helping you release everything that's blocking your experience of your Divine Self....and is also helping you experience your Divine Self more & more fully." Blessings of Love & Light & Awakening to all, Steve
