Natural Health (Holistic) Veterinarian: Dr. Rehanni Khaseipoul
I have loved animals since I was a child and always wanted to be an 'animal doctor'. My dream came true when I graduated with my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (University of Saskatchewan (Canada)) in 1994. After graduation, I worked in an emergency veterinary Hospital and then opened my own Veterinary Hospital in 1997. However, after many years of practice, I was discouraged with the results obtained with conventional/allopathic medicine in the treatment of chronic diseases. I found that many diseases required life-long treatment with medications and many of those medications had harmful side effects on the animal's long-term health. I wondered if there was a way to treat the whole body, and support the body's ability to heal itself. It was then that I discovered Homeopathic Medicine.
I completed a program in Classical Homeopathic Medicine from 2005-2010 at the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy. I have been practicing Holistic Veterinary medicine since 2005. I am passionate about Natural healing for pets and their people. I also discuss the use of nutrition, supplements, strengthening the immune system, and behaviour therapy.
Homeopathy is a very old system of Medicine. It was discovered in the 1800s by Sameul Hanhemann, a German Medical doctor. Homeopathy treats the whole being; mind, body and emotions because everything is inter-connected. Homeopathy works to rebalance the “Vital Force”, or inner energy (also known as Chi or Prana), that exists in all living beings. Disease results when this Inner Energy is out of balance.
An imbalance causing disease or illness can be on the emotional, mental or physical level because everything in the body is interconnected. Re-balancing the Vital energy of the patient allows the patient to heal completely. (This is contrary to Conventional medicine, which focuses on covering up the symptoms of disease with medications, but does not address why the disease began in the first place. This causes the original imbalance to persist causing further disease, as well as damage from side effect of medications). Homeopathy is safe, gentle and works by stimulating the body's own power of healing.
Homeopathic remedies are perfect for times such as hiking, camping or travelling, when medical care is not immediately available. It can literally mean the difference between life and death for your pet.
I am a Veterinarian and also a CCH, Certified Classical Homeopath (Council of Homeopathic Certification (North America)) and a registered Homeopath with the Canadian Society of Homeopaths (CSH). In my experience, homeopathic medicine can be an effective method of maintaining health, as well as treating disease. I have studied with many great Homeopathic practitioners including Murray Feldman, Dinesh Chauhan, Richard Pitcarin, Laurie Dayck, and Sunil Anand. In December 2012, I travelled to Mumbai India to work with a Dr. Dinesh Chauhan at his clinic in Mumbai.
I regularly attend educational Homeopathic seminars including the American Academy Veterinary Homeopathy. I am also a member of the American Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy (AVH), the AHVMA (American Holistic Veterinary Medical Associaton), the Canadian Society of Homeopaths. Due to my training, I am qualified to treat both pets and people with Homeopathy, and have my CCH, Certified Classical Homeopath credential through the North American Council for Homeopathic Certification
I am Certified as a Veterinarian by the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and the College of Veterinarians of BC.
