servicesHolistic Medicine can be compared to a puzzle. It requires assembling enough information and factors or “Puzzle Pieces”, to see a clearer picture of what is going on. As well as, having enough options for treatment to solve the present issue, such as a carpenter has enough tools to get the job done.

The Key to Dr. Nancy’s approach is collecting more puzzle pieces and linking them together to see a clearer picture and then offering an integrative approach that supplies enough ingredients to increase vibrancy and quality of life.

Asking Questions

Dr. Nancy acts as your advocate. Being educated in many medical modalities and 32 years in veterinary medicine allows Dr. Nancy to ask specific questions to point us in the right direction.

Spinal Analysis

  • Chiropractic
  • Osteopathic
  • Cranial Sacral
  • Tui Na

TCM Exam

Traditional Chinese Medicine developed over 4000 years ago. They, back that long ago, had to rely on their senses, not technology, for diagnosis. Today this is still a very valid method to glean information that even today’s technology cannot.

  • Tongue Analysis
  • Pulse Analysis
  • Questions
  • Active Point Analysis

Physical Exam

Routine Physical Exam taught in Veterinary Medical School in the hands of experienced practitioners will often reveal large parts of the puzzle.

  • Pulse, Respiration, Heart Quality, Temperature, CRT, Mucus Membrane
  • Body system Analysis

X-rays / Ultrasound

These are technology which allow a view within the body.   Often Dr. Nancy will interpret this based in the other medical modalities theories of how the body works.

Blood work

This is chemical technology which allows a screening of what may be going on inside.

Specialized Testing

These tests will be ordered often based off the screening tests.  They are more specific tests that may narrow down the possibilities.

Applied Kinesiology

A method used frequently by chiropractors, to check the bodies response to possibilities.

Pendulum / Dousing

A method used frequently by energy healers to check the energetic response to possibilities.

Medical Intuition

A person who is using higher brain functions to “sense” deeper patterns of disruption that could narrow our search for answers.

MSAS

Meridian Stress Analysis System - One way to test remotely the quality of your pet’s energy system is through a meridian Stress assessment.  Dr. Nancy uses a Biomeridian system (FDA Approved) to collect information about the flow of energy in your pet.  For complete information on how this can work visit the Biomeridian site at http://www.biomeridian.com/meridian-stress-assessment.htm

Acupuncture

One part of TCM that uses various means to activate specific locations on the body that have been found to create specialized feedback for the body to return to homeostasis.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

One part of TCM that uses blended herbal formulas as prescription medicine based on the TCM approach of diagnosis.  Often these formulas were not accepted and written down until they were effective for over 250 years.  Today there is extensive research into how they work pharmaceutically.

12. Animal Hospice Planning

Dr. Nancy Brandt DVM and her partner Veronica Selco MSW co created the Las Vegas Animal Hospice. [LINK] Often when we receive news of a disease that cannot be reversed we opt for euthanasia. Sometimes we feel it is not time yet for euthanasia and yet do not want our pet to suffer. Human hospice has taught us a lot about how to live whilst we are dying.

Through educational materials and palliative care provided by Natural Care Instititute LLC we support your loved one until they choose to leave naturally or until you both feel it is time to say goodbye and opt for euthanasia. Hospice statistically among humans provides a opportunity for closure and saying all that should be said. Many times Dr. Nancy has taken a pet that was deemed ready to be “put to sleep” and through council and care provided months to years of quality living and loving.
