Memorization Tip #4: Remembrance Jewelry
Jewelry is a nice way to memorialize the life of your fur baby. Wearing the jewelry is also a way to keep them close to you.

When you are grieving, it is ok to put on your bunny slippers from time to time and give yourself a break. Self care is so important during this time!!

Has anyone ever felt this way? It’s OK to not want to attend friend or family events while grieving. When grieving, do what makes you feel comfortable. #grief #petloss

Last Day!

Have the dog days of summer been wearing out your pooch? With long walks, critter chasing, and family vacations- it’s a great time of year for our pups! More activity brings sore muscles and achy joints, though, so there’s not better time than now to treat your canine companion to some relaxing and therapeutic massage.

From now until September 5, book a series of 3 massages at Wholistic Paws with resident canine massage therapist Sara May and get 20% off!

The goal of canine massage is not to pamper our pooches -- it offers so many physical and emotional benefits for dogs. Massage and bodywork can significantly contribute to your dog's overall health, energy, and quality of life. And best of all...it feels good!

We are super grateful to be partners in Sasha's therapy plan and road to recovery!! 💜

"For the past two weeks we've been running a little baby kitten rehab over here. Sasha was injured in a fall (likely from a cat tree onto a wood floor) and couldn't put any weight on her hind legs, although X-rays revealed no broken bones. When she came here she couldn't walk without crying, couldn't feed herself, and she sat with all her weight off her hind legs. Just two weeks later she's doing amazing, thanks in no small part to Dr. Krisi Erwin at Wholistic Paws, the care of doctors at Loudoun Cat Care, and the dedication of the Feline Foundation to get her well! Lucky Sasha has been seen by a team of doctors and a physical therapist and even gets kitty acupuncture. 🙂 Today she was able to race her brother around the room and climb up off the ground for the first time. She's learned to self feed again after weeks of syringe-feeding. She's our 13th foster this summer and the luckiest one of all! #lucky13 #adoptdontshop"

So many things in our lives are ephemeral and beautiful- a rainbow, butterflies in the summer, the coming and going of beautiful flowers- like this lotus from our client's garden (it only blooms for 24 hours!). How much of this beauty do we miss because we are so sucked into the day to day "busy-ness" that clutters our lives? On this Labor Day, may you all take a break from that tedium and look around you. What do you see? What fills your heart with love and beauty?

Hojas al Viento

How often do you pause to look at the natural world around you and wonder about all the lives that are seen and unseen? This is a beautiful video that outlines all of stages of our plant life cycles and the beauty of what surrounds us!!

La animación fue desarrollada para mostrar a los niños el ciclo de vida de las flores. Muchas diferentes especies están resistiendo en el mundo. Tomando sus raíces en la tierra, brotando, floreciendo, polinizadas por pájaros e insectos, viviendo a través de la lluvia, el viento y las tormentas. Transmiten el bastón de la vida, el renacimiento y la decadencia. Todo es así en un ciclo continuo e interminable.

Here is another fun "herb walk" post- our plants are such wonderful helpers for promoting good health and wellbeing!

Shiso (Perilla frutescens)

Red-leaved shiso, also known by the awkward name “beefsteak plant,” is wonderfully easy to grow and a delight to the eyes and the palate. Like holy basil (tulsi) – its sister – shiso is an adaptogen with high levels of antioxidants.

I love shiso in salads, gazpacho, marinated cucumber dishes, and anywhere else a dash of color and an interesting taste is welcome. Right now I am making shiso vinegar, shiso honey, and shiso pesto so I can enjoy it all winter too.

This pungent, aromatic, warming herb is known for its antibacterial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antitussive, tonic, carminative, diaphoretic, emollient, expectorant, and pectoral actions. No wonder its considered so useful when dealing with asthma, colds and chills, nausea (a tea of the stalks is traditional in China as a remedy for morning sickness), abdominal pain, food poisoning, allergic reactions (especially from seafood), bronchitis and even constipation. The juice helps heal cuts and wounds.

The high-protein tasty seeds are antiasthmatic, antitussive, emollient and expectorant. But don’t eat too many, as shiso self-sows readily if sufficient seeds are left on the stalks. As with all mints, there are lots of varieties of shiso available. I prefer the red-leaved shiso because I am into consuming high levels of the antioxidant anthocyanin, found in purple and blue plant parts.

Check out this little bean that we saw last week! She is still healing but we are proud to play a role in her recovery!!!

Baby Sasha is getting the royal treatment at Wholistic Paws! Healing properly from an injury is critical for growth and survival when you're just a little 1 pound kitten, so Feline Foundation is working with a team of doctors to help Sasha get back on her paws!

Dr. Krisi Erwin and therapist and rehabilitative specialist Kasey Braun at Wholistic Paws gave Sasha a full examination and a thorough treatment plan. Sasha is relearning how to walk and play and feed herself, and she's improving every day thanks to lots of loving care and comprehensive treatment from both conventional and holistic providers. Thank you so much to the dedicated team at Wholistic Paws for helping little Sasha heal! 💕

Sometimes people try to rank their grief and feel guilty that they grieved more for their pet than they may have grieved for a human companion. However, our relationships with our pets are often more intimate and filled with day to day solidarity than we may experience with most humans. Our pets are pretty wonderful and the connection with them runs deep!!

The amazing thing about having a dog...😀💕

As you all know, we think plants are pretty amazing! Check out the humble plantain and all of its incredible uses!!
08/08/2018

As you all know, we think plants are pretty amazing! Check out the humble plantain and all of its incredible uses!!

Have you seen these plants? They are called Broadleaf or Broadleaf Plantain
It grows especially well in poor, rocky soil (such as driveways) and is often seen alongside dandelion. More often than not, you will see plantain growing in gravel pits and construction sites as nature seeks to regenerate the soil. Introduced to North America in the 1600s, it was once called “White Man’s Foot” by the Native Americans who witnessed that where the Europeans tread and disrupted the soil, plantain sprung up.
Plantain has often been the go-to remedy for hikers plagued by mosquitos. Because it draws toxins from the body with its astringent nature, plantain may be crushed (or chewed) and placed as a poultice directly over the site of bee stings, bug bites, acne, slivers, glass splinters, or rashes. Bandage the area and allow the plantain to work its magic for 4-12 hours. Plantain may also be used to create a balm for emergency kits, or an infusion used as a skin or general wash. It is also a notable, soothing remedy for hemorrhoids.Plantain is renowned for its healing effect on the digestive system. This is especially useful for anyone who has been damaged by antibiotics, anti-inflammatory or pain medications, food allergies, or Celiac disease. Both leaves and seeds specifically target the digestive system for healing. The leaves may be steeped as tea, added to soups, or dried with a sauce similar to kale chips. The seeds – a type of psyllium – can be ground or soaked for bulk mucilage or absorbable fibre, which, consumed before meals, may help with weight loss.
Because plantain is a gentle expectorant and high in silica, an infusion can be helpful for lung problems, coughs, and colds.
Plantain is almost a panacea for the human body, treating everything from all menstrual difficulties, all digestive issues, to nearly all skin complaints, and even arthritis. Add to salads, chew to ease thirst, or enjoy in stir fries. This versatile wild vegetable will keep you in good health for years to come!
