FLEA, TICK, AND HEARTWORM (a.k.a. PESTICIDE) APPLICATIONS AND COLLARS WITH ALTERNATIVES
About the Products
Although these products are marketed as safe for your pets and their use is almost universally accepted among pet owners, they are made from neurotoxins derived from pesticides, and are extremely dangerous.
IT IS KILLING THEM!
If it is killing fleas and ticks, it is also killing your animal. It really is unimaginable that these products are allowed on the market. This shows us all how powerful pharma is and how irresponsible the FDA is, and actually all our country’s “pet healthcare watchers” are, if this is being sold by your veterinarian. This industry is on track to earn $1.34 billion USD a year by 2025, selling poison in the name of prevention.
What do these products do to the body? What are the “side effects” of the poison?
- Loss of appetite
- Seizures / Convulsions
- Nervous ticks
- Muscle tremors
- Excessive drooling
- Itching, reddening of ears
- Hair Loss
- Labored breathing
- Excessive grooming
Looking at the symptoms above, what is the body trying to do? Depending on the toxin, chemical used, and the toxic load in the being already, this is the damage the body is messaging:
Stage 1: Body is trying to remove the poison via:
- Loss of appetite (fasting)
- Excessive drooling
- Itching, reddening of ears
- Hair Loss
- Labored breathing
- Excessive grooming
Stage 2: Most likely the above has been tried, but the body is losing the battle, as poison is in the neuro system and in the brain. Body now experiencing:
- Seizures / Convulsions
- Nervous ticks
- Muscle tremors
Stage 3: Body has been poisoned to death, literally. Could not survive the deathly poison:
Innocent animals would have been tested on, purposely poisoned, to give you this list in the packet. And of course, many would have died.
This is not healthcare, this has nothing to do with health or looking after your animal. Poisoning them is not “do no harm” being practised. This is not the answer.
Protect your Pet by NOT poisoning them!
Fleas and Ticks
Fleas and ticks are around all the time. It is your responsibility as a responsible pet owner to check your animal regularly via grooming, to make sure that nothing has jumped on. If you find anything, pluck it off. Brushing is good for the coat and for blood circulation, even if you don’t find any unwanted visitors.
Diet is everything. A strong body does not attract ticks and fleas. Nature only picks on the weak. And everyone is making their animal weaker in the name of “no fleas and ticks”. People are actually doing the exact opposite of what they should be doing. And causing so much harm, so much pain.
So instead of poisoning an already sick animal, you must have a compassionate vet or myself work with you to help balance your beautiful being. Either the heart, liver, kidneys, or something is running low, and finding fleas is YOUR big cue to get your animal healthy. Diet will be a major component in most cases.
Animals are designed to hide their imbalances so they do not get killed. This is their natural instinct. Your animal may not seem ill, because they are trying to keep it together,
This also applies to flies around horse’s eyes. The flies will pick on the weak, and eyes indicate the state of the liver in Traditional Chinese Medicine. When horses are offered the remedies to heal themselves during a Zoopharmacognosy session, the liver becomes balanced and the flies disappear! Nature knows!
Real-Life Experience: Fleas
We adopted a beautiful five-year-old dog, Yantha, and I felt she was not grounded in her body at all. She was being fed dry industry processed food. She was having small seizures, like her system was on overload with too much information. Of course, having a new family was a massive undertaking. It was in the summertime and one day she was rolling on her back in the grass when I saw the flea community on her abdomen.
Wow! I was not pleased, but not surprised, since I knew she was not okay inside. She had previously been fed commercial dog food, and had only been eating real fresh food for a few weeks.Her energy and body were unstable, and the fleas knew this.
So, I worked with her heavily on diet, providing lots of fresh raw ingredients giving less animal protein. We washed her every few days with Dr. Bronner’s fragrance-free castile soap, rinsed her with an apple cider vinegar rinse, we flea combed (a comb with a double row of teeth is the best, and can be found on Amazon) her in the morning and at night, and we made this fun for her. She got bits of fresh food—red pepper, carrot, apple, etcetera—and she got totally spoilt for being combed heavily and invasively (as it wasn’t so comfortable for her, bless her) to get the critters.
Actually, when she saw the comb, she went to her spot for combing. So, this was a good time to bond with her, as she was new to us. We also washed the bedding regularly, mopped the floors with lavender, and vacuumed daily. But most of all I worked on her spirit, on her inability to be present and feel safe in the world. This I did with Applied Zoopharmacognosey [See Section III].
One additional thing I did which was vital,I stopped mentally pushing the fleas away. I gave thanks for their information, I wished them well, and explained to them that they were no longer required, thank you. I had this. As soon as I took this last step, relaxed, and accepted, they were gone in two weeks.
Incidentally, we had two other animals at the time that remained relatively flea-free during this process. Keep in mind that resistance = persistence! This was a big lesson for me!
Above: Yantha, flea free, no chemicals, no poison. And she is in the forest all the time.
The important take away on fleas/ticks is this:
In most cases, the solution will be diet-related, as the body just does not have the nutrition, minerals, and so on that it needs in order to do the job it is meant to do with commercial food. The diet is not supporting the body and the immune system. Zoopharmacognosey, along with diet changes, can do immense re-balancing.
Since then (five years ago), we have never had fleas, and we have four animals who come and go in the forest all the time! So again, the solution is not about adding poisons to the body, it’s about making your animal’s body so strong and calibrated with nature that it can do the job it is meant to do. Then nature knows,
Also, FEAR is a fabulous marketing tool aimed at the consumer,but you don’t have to fall for this tactic anymore. When people hear the words “fleas and ticks,” there is soooo much fear association, which has been cleverly planted by big pharma and a lot of vets, who are making a lot of money from poisoning your animal.
While healing your animal, focus on these tools that worked best for us. And believe me I tried lot of stuff, but it came down to these working the best and most effectively.
Tools for Getting Rid of Fleas Naturally
1. Fresh, alive food diet,with not too much animal protein, as the body is compromised.
2. Applied Zoopharmacognosey session,allow your animal to tell you what the problem is.
3. Homeopathy remedy,if required.
4. Weekly bathswith Dr. Bronner’s fragrance-free castile soap with an apple cider vinegar rinse.
5. Mop your floors dailywith lavender essential oil, being careful not to use too much oil. Do not use if you have cats.
6.Vacuum dailyand placing vacuum bag in the freezer in between vacuums so the fleas do not live.
7. Wash pet beds dailywith hot water. We used white sheets on top of all beds and checked them for the black dots, and then washed these regularly. This was easier than washing the dog beds so often.
8. Flea comb with a glass of hot soapy water to drown the fleas.
This is your best defense by a mile. You must get the adult fleas, and the only way to do this is to comb. Put on a podcast and enjoy yourself. Comb with love! Comb three times a day, if possible, twice at the minimum.

9. Amber stone necklaces are amazing.We use them for our pets and others have reported noticeable positive effects from using them. Make sure you take them off after walking your animal, all animals’ necks should be free when not out walking. And please make sure cats’ necklace’s always have a release-free clasp. Our source:
10. Positive mindset is essential,with gratitude expressed daily. This is a journey, and it will end. So just be present and do what you need to do to help your beautiful being become a healthier being.
Tools for Getting Rid of Ticks Naturally
So much fear is propagated around ticks. It generates so much money for the industry and for your local veterinary office it is incredible. All fear marketing.
What I suggest people do is – relax! And have no fear! If stats are being reported, dig into them, because I guarantee you, it is revenue driven, not driven to protect your pet. Anyhow, it is poison so how can it be anyway!
Ticks are a part of nature, have been for centuries, and they do not all carry disease. In the summer months, check your animal daily after walks in the forest, use a brush and your hands. Brush liberally.
Please do not apply anything to them. What may be worn is amber stone necklaces to support them. These are referenced above in the flea section.
As I have explained above, if they seem to attract more than usual then you have a system problem, something is off with their diet most likely, and / or they are emotionally distraught where their systems are on over drive.
In these cases, they will most likely need a Zoopharmacognosey session to help them clean their systems and recalibrate. The animal really needs help. And not by the way of chemicals. This is a big “get help” signal from nature. Be thankful and get on it with nutrition and a zoo session.
In the case of tick bites, I smear Rescue Remedy cream on it, pulling the full tick with its head out with tweezers. If it is a big bite, I clean with apple cider vinegar and apply calendula tincture, and the bite is almost gone within a few hours, without my animal being exposed to any toxicity. And without a leaving massive bump where the tick bit.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) – Food Grade
The reason I have not mentioned Diatomaceous Earth in the protocols above is because I am “on the fence” about it. I have been using this for years. On my animals, in my animals and in me. I am/was a big fan. It is a natural de-wormer and it helps with any over population of insect when sprinkled around the interior or exterior part of the house. It is fabulous.
However, when reading Anthony Williams book, “Medical Medium” I was shocked to read he advises against it. He explains that it does damage to the inside walls of the intestines and the gut preventing the body from absorbing nutrients from food. It also damages your hydrochloric acid and kills good bacteria. Hmmmm……so how to move forward.
Please consider this:
Real-Life Experience: Canine, Consistently Throwing Up at 7am
My flat coat retriever, Yantha, started consistently vomiting at 7am. It was clear vomit – a little frothy – nothing much in it, but I could see in the morning, she looked nauseous. and then boom, she would throw up. This was when her stomach was empty.
I tried everything I knew to rebalance her.
When nothing worked, I thought,“Okay – something is down there that has to come up. Either worms – yet she was not choosing anything worm related during her Zoopharmacognosey sessions, or there was something foreign”.
So, I made her main meal with a lot of starch – a lot of sweet potato, minced meat and some oats. A lot of sticky stuff. Then I added 3 heaped tablespoons of diatomaceous earth, knowing this was a lot, and the body would not be happy with me, but I wanted to see her system “kick”. She ate about 4 cups of food and then about 5 minutes later, it all came up.
And what came up with it? A massive plastic cucumber wrapper!!!!
You know – the end of cucumber wrapper which is all burnt plastic? (Please refer to photo) Well, that end, and about 50% of the wrapper surfaced. I was shocked I have to say! As my animals eat everything fresh and LOVE cucumbers, especially in the summer months as they are cooling to the body, somewhere along the way, she must have found something and eaten the wrapper too.
So, this is where my stance against plastic is massive as ALL animals are ingesting it! It is absolutely choking our planet and its inhabitants.
Anyhow, problem solved. No more upchucking and no more nausea in the morning. Happy dog! But then, I had to remake another whole meal of course.
How to proceed? I would use DE as a tool. I would learn how to muscle test and provide it accordingly to your animals, as the body changes every day, every week, every month, year, season, etc.
It is fabulous for clearing gunk out of the system, especially joints, skin, and has a great impact on the eyes too I find. Any joint issues, this clears the garbage out. And cleans the intestines out, with regular bowel movements reported by so many! So, please learn how to muscle test, it is a fabulous tool.
And I still put in my smoothies and salads. I find it is amazing.
Heartworm – Natural Prevention
Please use homeopathic nosodes to protect your animal during the months applicable, if you live in an area where heartworm is prevalent. This is non-toxic, nature-derived, and effective. Again, have no FEAR!
To learn more about nosodes, please refer to “Section III: NATURE: How to help support your animal to live a long, happy, pain-free life, at minimal financial cost.”
All heartworm medication / prevention is POISON. It is very poisonous to your animal, and will do unknown damage inside your family member definitely shortening their lifespan and possible contributing to an early death.
When I map heartworm drugs against symptoms on a timeline – such as PANACUR, I can see the animal’s body crippling under the medication. Vomiting, diarrhea, etc. These are lethal products which are on the market because everyone is making money from “preventive” medicine. What the pet parent is not realizing, is that all this “prevention” is killing your animal.
To have a better understanding about the heartworm and how your animal may or may not be impacted, I suggest you read the information found here: https://www.pethealthandnutritioncenter.com/heartworm-treatment-facts-dogs.html
Parasites – Natural Prevention and Expulsion
Parasites are a part of our anatomy, unfortunately, and definitely part of our animals, as they have their nose to the ground constantly. What is important is the balance in their system; what their system can manage, deal with and clean. If the system becomes too toxic, then the balance will be in the parasites favour and the body will need assistance to clean.An intentional annual clean for all organic bodies is a fabulous idea. It is said any compromised system most likely has a parasitic load it needs to deal with, and pet parents most likely are hosting parasites too courtesy of their animals.
So, everyone should have a good clean ANNUALLY.
There are a few ways to clean out the system without wiping out the internal good gut bacteria which the pharma de-wormers consistently do and do not necessarily target all the parasites.
All of our cells require chlorophyll to function. It is reported chlorophyll keeps worms and parasites out of the intestinal tract. Chlorophyll comes from all the greens. It is essential the greens are rotated in the diet, preferably given seasonally, and as close to raw as possible. Just flash cooked is ideal for those that are hard to process. Greens HIGH in chlorophyll:
Spinach, Collard Greens, Mustard Greens, Alfalfa Sprouts, Parsley, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Bok Choy, Romaine Lettuce, Green Cabbage, Asparagus, Green Beans, Green Peas.
Minerals high in chlorophyll which are SELF SELECTED by the animal using Applied Zoopharmacognosey: Chlorella, Spirulina, Barley Grass, Wheat grass. Please note, these are not food and should not be added to any animal’s food.
2. Diatomaceous Earth
Place in some kefir or food. Use this for a week to clean out the body. Watch the stools to see if anything dead surfaces. If you are surprised with what you see, move to Ingraham’s method below to have the animal lead a purge with ingredients below to make sure the system is cleaned fully.
3. Ground Pumpkin Seeds
Parasites cannot survive ground pumpkin seeds. The amino acid in the seeds called cucurbitacin, makes it impossible for the worms to hold onto the intestinal walls. The seeds must be freshly ground per day to have impact on an animal’s system. Dose: For a 50 lb dog, 1 tsp per day.
4. MSM (Sulfur)
Pure MSM is said to kill worms, parasites in the body. We give this to our animals on the side of their food so they can choose whether they need it or not. It is always selected. Sulfur is necessary to support a lot of bodily functions. Please reference more information on the links below:

5. De-Parasite Herbal Tonics
This company, Our Botanicals, sells two tonic formulas for parasites. Ask for the glycerin-based tonics not the alcohol-based, where possible. Also, PLEASE measure your animals PH levels to make sure the PH stays within the normal levels. The tonics may be needed to balance against a Vitamin C source such as cranberry powder.
Smaller parasites: Viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa’s, etc.
Large parasites: Worms of all types and flukes

6. Tick and Flea Bach Flower Remedy
Silvia Malagoli in Italy uses Bach Flower Remedies to keep fleas and ticks away. This is energy medicine which is explained under the Bach Flower Remedy section in Nature.
This is non-toxic to you, your animal and the planet. I use her formulas for plants also. All life can be positively impacted. Her lovely products may be found here:
7. Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosey
The other route to go is self-selection via Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosey. The animals will choose the remedies they need to cleanse their systems if they have been “invaded”. This may come in the form of the following ingredients listed below. These are self-selected several times a day for consecutive days until the job is done. The animal will direct you clearly, and you will then see some purging.
Remedies offered with oils to see what the animal needs to do the job:
- Wormwood Powder:selected dry, with a little water or with preferred oil (already chosen)
- Sunflower Oil and Flax Oil (refrigerated, cold pressed, first extraction organic if available):may be chosen individually or in conjunction with each other, with the animal alternating between the two, in bucket loads or with one of the other powders
- Neem Powder:selected dry, with a little water or with preferred oil (already chosen)
- Nettle Powder:selected dry, with a little water or with preferred oil (already chosen)
Coconut oil or rice bran oil may also be selected by your animal to do the job with the powders above.
Important to Note
It is important to note every system is different and every animal is different so it is preferred a proper/full Zoopharmacognosey session is offered to the animal to make sure this is not the only imbalance in the body present. Therefore, the whole body is addressed, as the parasites are present due to a system running less than optimally. Nature knows!!!
Please LISTEN to your animal and follow their lead, they, of course, know!
