Magic of tailed healers
Animal-assisted therapy (treatment by animals) was introduced by New York physician Boris Levinson.
Of course, the best “doctors” among animals are dolphins. It has long been recognized that communication with dolphins helps even children with Down syndrome and cerebral palsy.
Aquarium fish certainly have healing abilities. Smooth movements of colorful fish in clear water reduce stress. In addition, watching fish helps in the treatment of certain skin diseases – it has been observed that the aquarium distracts the patient and prevents him from scratching sores. And even the presence of the aquarium itself serves as the prevention of colds and asthma: evaporating water makes the air moist and healthy, while the dry atmosphere increases susceptibility to infections.
If you have to spend a long time in bed, then a canary or a parrot will be the best therapists for you. Birds save from depressions, migraines, and generally improve the mood.
Communication with a hamster, a mouse or a rabbit facilitates the state of joint diseases. In addition, these animals help non-communicable, insecure people to defeat the fear of relationships with strangers.
Scientists from the Institute for Animal Communication (North Carolina, USA) have found out that the sound of purring domestic cats accelerates the growth of bones and strengthens them by 20 percent. And cat’s biofield helps to cope with headache, inflammatory diseases, stabilizes the work of the heart, strengthens the immune system. Cats are almost the only creatures in the world who happily communicate with old people, suffering from Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Cats perfectly reduce blood pressure, relieve stress, help with neurasthenia, soften the breakdown of drug addicts and alcoholics.
Dogs are universal absorbers of stress. They treat arrhythmia, heart failure, stomach ulcer, osteochondrosis, vegetative-vascular dystonia.
Dogs, like cats, are good at insomnia.
Hippotherapy is a treatment with the help of horses. It is strongly recommended for treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, atherosclerosis, polio, chronic gastrointestinal diseases, prostatitis, scoliosis and even … mental retardation.
In America, animal-assisted therapy is already widely used in nursing homes and even in the army. In Japan, not so long ago, dogs were also recruited into the nursing home. Thanks to the animals elderly people became more active and emotional, began to fall asleep without sleeping pills. In addition, they have a sense of freedom and security.
In England, white cats have been selling for several years in pharmacies – without a prescription.
Love animals and take care of them and they will love and treat you.
