Sharing a Preventive and Restorative Health Care System for Your Animal Friends

The “-tudes” are the natural essence of an individual. They guide us through life emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.  Although we all have aspects of each of these natural tendencies, every one of us is unique, with one or two “-tudes” being dominant.  The interaction between these natural forces makes up a physiology system in Chinese Medicine.  When one of the natural forces is out of balance, it affects all the rest, and symptoms of dis-ease come up. Fixing the dis-ease is important. What we really need is to re-balance and support the underlying natural essence or “-tude” to be healthy.   Take a look at the “-tudes” and see where your animal friend, or you, fit in so that you can both maximize connection.

For the professional, student and animal lover.
