Eastern Philosophy for Cats
Most veterinarians changed their way of looking at things after studying TCVM. And, you can too.
Here’s a little about Taoism to get you started.
Taoism: The Philosophy Behind TCVM
Taoism emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao, also known as “way,” “path,” or “principle.” In non-theist theology, Tao is the source of and the force behind all that exists.
Taoism influences TCVM by emphasizing the body as a whole being, with many factors contributing to a delicate balance.
TCVM for Cats
TCVM is appropriate for a multitude of cat health problems.
Eastern and alternative medicine provides alternative options for ailments such as cat allergies, cat cancer and cat urinary problems and renal failure. In fact, Eastern Food Therapy treats cat obesity. Chiropractic, feng shui, and aromatherapy for pets are among the available options for sick cats.
Eastern medicine views wellness as a state of balance, and illness as a state of imbalance. Furthermore, Eastern approaches adapt to an environment; Western approaches change an environment.
Taoism and TCVM constitute the fundamentals of holistic pet medicine. If you embrace and adopt only a mere fraction of TCVM, then you too can be open minded, progressive, intuitive, perceptive, and creative.
