Quality Vs. Quantity

We live in an age of quantity. The media shapes us with the notion that larger, faster, and more are often synonymous with better. We are told that we need to find more time, more possessions, and more love to be truly happy. A smaller quantity of anything that is high in quality will almost always be more satisfying. A single piece of our favorite chocolate or a thin spread of freshly made preserves can satisfy us more than a full bucket of a product that we aren’t very fond of. Similarly, one fulfilling experience can eclipse many empty moments strung together. It is not the quantity of time that matters, but the quality that you experience during each moment. Every minute is an opportunity to love yourself and others, develop confidence and self-respect, and exhibit courage….CLICK & SEE

Ultimately, quality can make life sweeter. When you focus on quality, all your life experiences can be meaningful. A modest portion of good, healthy food can nourish and satisfy you on multiple levels and, when organically grown, nourish the earth as well. Likewise, a few hours of deep, restful slumber will leave you feeling more refreshed than a night’s worth of frequently interrupted sleep. A few minutes spent with a loved one catching up on the important details about family, work, or community can carry more meaning than two hours spent watching television together.

Often, in the pursuit of quantity we cheat ourselves of quality. Then again, quantity also plays a significant role in our lives. Certain elements, such as hugs, kisses, abundance, and love, are best had in copious amounts that are high in quality. But faced with the choice between a single, heartfelt grin and a lifetime of empty smiles, most would, no doubt, choose the former. Ultimately, it is not how much you live or have or do but what you make of each moment that counts.

Homoeopathy is often a good remedy for pet ailments. It reinforces the body’s innate healing powers and is very safe, too. The writer of this article is not a homoeopath, but with the help of some specialists in this branch and homoeopathy books on dogs, he has tried some medicines on pets and got good results.

You can try the following.
Newborn puppies usually suffer from colic pain, bloat and bad stool. In such cases, you can administer Nux Vomica-6 and Carboveg-6, four times a day.

Most puppies are born with roundworm. Ten drops of Abrotanum 3X or 6 can be given, mixed with food, thrice a day for a week. The worms will be flushed out on the 7th, 8th or 9th day.

A weekly dose of Calcarea Carbonicum-200 will prevent re-infestation of worms. Sometimes puppies show symptoms of rickets due to imbalance in mineral metabolism. A tablet each of Calcarea Phosphorica-3X and Calcarea Carbonica 6X three times a day, along with codliver oil capsule, give good results.

Try the following, too:
*Bad breath with discharge: Acid carb 30
*Profuse salivation: Merc sol-30
*Body odour: Hepar sulf-30
*Unhealthy skin and dry coat: Sulfur-200
*Anal gland infection (sometimes dogs rub their bottom against the ground and bad odour *comes from their body due to anal gland infection): Sulphur-200 in the morning and Nux vomica-200 in the evening.

Heres what you should give in case of excessive hairfall, leaving patches on the body
:
*Hair loss between the shoulder and hair breaking: Lycpodium 12X
*Hair loss from the underbelly: Silica 6X
*Hair loss after giving birth: Sepia 12X
*If the ear is severely infected and in pain, give Heper sulph 6X. If theres a yellow brown discharge with a smell of boiled meat, give Psorinm-30.
*Diarrohea with vomiting: Ars alb 1M + Verat alb1M + Ipecac-30.
*Dysentery, along with blood and loose stool: Marc cor-30
*Loose stool: Marc sol-30
*In case of too much barking, give Causticum. You can also try Collinsonia.
