OUR STORY

How It All Began

I’ve always had a passion for dogs and leaned toward natural ways to maintain and improve their overall health. Meet Koda, Boo and Zieva, aged 5, 6 and 3 respectively. I have been feeding a raw diet going on 5 years now.  I prefer to feed natural, pure foods and treats.  I shy away from additives, by products, unnatural preservatives and chemicals.  


In 2008 I opened Luxe Dog Grooming and Training in White Rock BC.  In 2012 I obtained my Professional Dog Trainer Certification and in 2013 I quit the corporate world to obtain my Professional Dog Groomer Certification  after which time I started working with my staff at Luxe Dog and have been doing so since.  I have seen dogs with a multitude of different issues including food sensitivities, environmental allergies, poor skin and coat, emotional issues such as anxiety and stress, diabetes, and other medical conditions.


Koda and Boo suffer from seasonal environmental allergies and Boo has had chronic recurring ear issues.  There are so many toxins in our oceans, soil and foods, not to mention GMO's, that I suspected they are all, in some way, contributing to my dogs' issues. Because of my keen interest in a natural approach to dog health I started researching alternative remedies and health care and discovered a whole new world in essential oils, herbs and botanicals, CBD Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Coconut Oil and Spirulina amongst other natural remedies, health products and supplements.  


Harmonic Balance came about because of my desire to help my dogs live a healthier, happier, longer life and to offer you, my fellow dog lovers and owners, the tools, products and knowledge to assist you in following a path of holistic, natural health and well being in your beloved four legged companions.

Benefits of Feeding Raw

Good health starts with good food.   Raw food diets are toted to be the oldest form of pet food.  Why?  Because they are the closest to what our dogs ancestors and those that live in the wild today eat. More and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of raw, natural foods in their diets and many dog and cat owners are switching to raw diets as well, for a multitude of reasons.


 As pet owners investigate what builds their own good health, they realize good food applies to the whole family—including the four-legged family,” explains Dr. Cathy Alinovi, DVM, a holistic veterinarian who is also certified in Veterinary Food Therapy and Chinese Herbal Therapy.


Many dog owners switch their dogs to a raw diet because of health problems. It’s one of the reasons that I did and I have noticed a marked improvement in my dogs’ overall health, including the condition of my dogs teeth and gums.  There is much less tartar build up than with dogs I have seen who are on a kibble diet. 


I have been feeding an elk blend for the past while that is hormone free and pasture raised. At the beginning of March 2018 I added my supplements to my dogs daily meals: skin and coat, digestive health, allergy relief- for Koda, immune booster, spirulina, CBD oil and hemp seed oil (as it is the perfect ratio of Omega 3-6).  I'm using less in the way of fish oils and fish products as I'm trying to do my part to save our oceans ( increasing mercury levels, radiation, plastic pollution, etc), not to mention the low fish stocks of certain species. 

The Ocean is Everybodys Business


 I have already noticed a decrease in Koda’s scratching and improvement in his skin and coat condition, his eyes have also stopped producing excessive discharge.  Boo's ear issue is severe so I bit the bullet and had allergy tests done.  She has multiple sensitivities and because of the severity of her ear issue I have opted for conventional medicine until it is stabilized and under control at which time we will switch her to my herbal complements for daily maintenance.

Holistic/Natural Vs Traditional Methods

My personal preference is for holistic and natural care and/or treatments whenever possible.  I believe what       

Dr. Karen Becker says: 


If a health condition can be resolved or well-managed with natural treatments that have no known side effects, why take risks with synthetic pharmaceuticals that almost certainly come with side effects

  

Some of the differences between Holistic/Natural and Traditional care:


  Holistic/Natural Medicine

  • Emphasizes disease prevention
  • Views the body in it's entirety, as a living microcosm, with disease resulting when it is unbalanced
  • Views the body as capable of self repair and administers treatments or remedies to support self healing

Traditional Medicine

  • Emphasizes diagnosis and treatment
  • Views the body as segments or parts and deals with disease in those specific parts 
  • Views the body or part of the body as the passive recipient of treatments that fix it

I concede that traditional treatments are a necessary part of modern health care. Drugs and surgery have their place in situations where that is the only protocol.  It is my belief however, that natural care should be the first option of choice with drugs and surgeries being secondary.
