The (Genuine) Blue Power Ear Treatment
A Request From Helen
The internet offers us the opportunity to become better informed of just about everything. Internet 'Discussion Groups' such as the one I administrate (see below) allows for the exchange of helpful information to benefit us and our companion animals. With my Group every effort is made to prevent spamming, posting 'misinformation', exploiting Group Members for marketing purposes, and other unwanted activity.
Ten years ago I published helpful information on the Blue Power Ear Treatment (BPET) in my book. Later on, it appeared on this Web Site. Although none of my animals has ever had an ear problem, it seemed that it was fairly common for others. So, I sent that excerpt to many Internet Forums / Groups for people to help their dogs with a long-proven remedy. For many years afterwards, the response I received from people who utilized BPET was phenomenal! In many cases, the reports were especially gratifying because all sorts of conventional ear treatment had failed and, as a last resort, BPET was used -- which cleared-up the problem -- and for some, saved the dog from scheduled ear canal surgery.
Then, a few years ago, the reports started to come in informing me that the BPET doesn't work, the ear problems continued. At first, I thought the remedy hadn't been followed 'as instructed'. However, the people assured me that wasn't the case. So, I began to look into the matter and was shocked to learn that individuals had created their own version of BPET and were circulating it.
Some of the versions were severely edited from what I'd published -- ingredients were missing or arbitrarily changed, and instructions for treatment were altered or not included at all. In other versions, the name of this old-time remedy has been changed.
In addition, I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with circulation of the outdated version of my excerpt of the Blue Power Ear Treatment.
Realizing the intention was to help others whose dogs have ear problems, whenever possible, I've informed the folks who've circulated the outdated version that dogs could be harmed in certain instances. I let them know that the updated information is here - free for everyone to print-out.
Most people appreciated having the news, but the negative reaction of many others is inexplicable. The updated version contains vital information, including the CAUTION of irreversible loss of equilibrium and / or deafness if the eardrum is ruptured.
Despite being informed of this, many people become angry and defiant. They just insist on circulating outdated / incomplete versions and impostors of the Blue Power Ear Treatment.
Therefore, in the interest of helping the poor suffering dogs, I am asking that whenever the outdated or 'impostor' versions of the Blue Power Ear Treatment are being circulated, please reply with the Link to this Web Page:
Eventually -- as with Dr. Jean Dodds' situation regarding a vaccination protocol being incorrectly attributed to her and circulating the internet for several years -- the authentic, proven old-time remedy, Blue Power Ear Treatment will be utilized and dogs will be helped!

Our Mottos are:
"Make Informed Decisions"
“There is Usually More Than One Way
of Doing Something Right.”
Discussion is on all aspects of caring for our companion animals, and the focus is on health, including:
Feeding (raw/BARF, home-made cooked food) Supplements, Grooming, Exercise, Training, etc.
Complementary Alternative Veterinary Medicine (CAVM) as well as Conventional Vet Med -- AKA Integrative Veterinary Medicine.
Holistic Healing Modalities:
Acupuncture, Acupressure, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, Massage, Traditional Herbal Medicine (THM), Flower Essences, Essential Oils, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Reiki, Ayurvedic, Kinesiology, etc.
Nutrition is said to be the 'Foundation of Health', and is the most popular topic. Some dogs & cats are unable to tolerate a raw food diet, and this is a good forum to discuss home-made food. We are *all* learning - even the experts, the scientists and researchers who advise everyone about the BEST diets for staying healthy.
Here's something to think about:
"Because nutritional biochemistry is constantly evolving, some have questioned whether a manufactured diet can ever contain 'complete' nutrition. One example can be found in the fatal consequences of dietary taurine deficiency that occurred in cats being fed, interestingly, a high-quality premium diet (Pion and others, 1987). ... scientists cannot know everything necessary about animal nutritional requirements."
------ excerpt from: Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine, Principles and Practice, edited by Allen M. Schoen, DVM, MS, and Susan G. Wynn, DVM
"If a diet is unnatural, disease will keep company with those subjected to it."
