Episode 15: Dr. Nancy Bureau and her Bond Centered Practice

Do you ever wonder why so many healthcare practitioners, and veterinarians in particular, burn out soon after graduation?  It’s because many sign up to work in places that put profits before pets, not realizing they have other options.  In this episode, Dr. Nancy Bureau shows that you DO have a choice.  Bond-centered care creates a safe, nurturing, and health-affirming space for veterinary patients, their people, and those who work in the practice.  Think about it — how do you wish to spend this one, precious life?

Body-reading. It’s what human bodyworkers do, day in and day out, in order to identify structural changes resulting from pain and dysfunction. If more veterinarians learned how to body-read their patients, they would become better diagnosticians and more effective healers.

How many times do veterinary surgeons refer patients out for integrative medicine and rehabilitation instead of surgery? How many of them give you a complete and accurate comparison of the risks and benefits of surgical vs. non-surgical approaches? Maybe, not that often? Maybe, never? It’s up to you to learn the facts about medical acupuncture, photomedicine, massage, herbal therapies, and rehabilitation before something happens to your dog or cat so that you’re not left wondering if all that pain and suffering after a highly invasive and costly surgery might have been avoidable. Kicking yourself in the head hurts.
