All right, well, it’s my pleasure. I’m Alison Quinn at our Kanem holistic clinic. I’m a senior practitioner here and have been for gosh, I think 21 years now. And I have the absolute pleasure to welcome aboard at our Kanem holistic clinic Alex mechanic who has equally been in practice for the same amount of time. She has also added to her repertoire of veterinary Heilkunst. So she treats animals and has been for many, many years decades now and has written several books as well. So Alex, welcome aboard. It’s a pleasure to have you with me today.

Aleks Mikic

Thank you so much. My pleasure to be here. Awesome. All right. So Alex, tell me love like we were way back at the Hahnemann college for Heilkunst. You know, over two decades ago, studying together what made you add on the veterinary component and treat animals in your practice?

Glad you asked. Because you’re part of the story. Actually, I always wanted to do animal health. So I didn’t even I really didn’t want to learn about people at all. I was, but nobody would let me study animal homeopathy or anything without being a veterinarian. So I called up the I don’t even know how I found Hanuman college was you have no idea. But, but I called up and you happen to be the registrar. And my question was like, would you let me study? If I’m not a veterinarian? And you said, Oh, then you’re just the right person for it?

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah, brilliant. And why was it that you wanted to treat animals? Why was that your focus?

Aleks Mikic

Animals have been my first true love. Ever since I remember myself. It’s just how it’s always been. And I always wanting to make a difference for them. And so the first thing I was able to study was animal massage. So I worked on mostly on a horse for a while. And then, and then yeah, just obviously, right. It wasn’t enough. It’s like there is so much more that can be done. So then, like, I had to go past the bodywork. And when I discovered homeopathy at first, it was like, it was really amazing. Because I saw how well it worked. I saw it on my son, I saw. Like, I wanted to do that. I really wanted to do that. And so yeah, did I accidentally on purpose stumbled upon this? Approach? Yeah, that was amazing.

Allyson McQuinn

And when you say that you saw how well homeopathy worked in those early days? Does any case come to mind? Can you think of any one situation back then, that you just noticed was kind of miraculous or a big, big shift for the animal?

Aleks Mikic

Well, I did not. I’m trying to remember, I never worked with homeopathy in animals. I just had a, I had a situation where my son needed a remedy. And then it worked so instantaneously and so profoundly, that I was like, I have to do this. And by the way, my whole journey with homeopathy began when, because of my son’s allergies, I said to myself, there has to be another way. He was allergic to all the conventional medication just like I was. So I was dealing with myself, like, whatever. But when it comes to your child, like, Oh, my God, I have to make a difference. So after me saying that there has to be another way I happen to be in a secondhand bookstore. And I was reaching for something. And another book falls along with the one pulling a hit me on the head. And it’s a book on homeopathy. And I looked at it and I went homeopathy, I wonder what that is. And so I bought it just to find out what it is. And yeah. But But since I was starting to study and working with animals, I mean, there were so many instances of it working like immediately with my own dog. For example, one time The bee flew into the house. And she saw it before I saw it. And I just saw her making a beeline for the bee. And she went to grab it, but the bee stung her in the chin. But I mean, from all it took for me to realize that was happening to run there to grab her. She just as I picked her up, like her eyes just rolled back, and she passed out. She had a pool until I shot to the to the best thing. So of course, have I resorted to any kind of a veteran intervention, I would have never made it to the emergency clinic. This was Sunday, of course, things always happen. But I had a fist remedy. I gave it to her. Within 10 minutes, she was awake. Within 20 She was running around like nothing’s ever happened. Incredible. I mean, it literally saved her life.

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah, it’s a great story. So tell me about the books who have written love.

Aleks Mikic

The books I have I have written several. One. The best selling mind is the one that’s on immunizations, and what to do in real vaccines. And so that was that was really, you know, I noticed that there were many books out there talking about the danger of vaccines, but then they weren’t giving an alternative. So the people are essentially left with well, do I just trust the nature? Do I just, you know, trust the immune system? Do I trust the nutrition? But none of that is good enough, right? Like, I always say like, if your dog has been say exposed to rabies, it’s like, you know, I’m going to save him with vitamin C. It’s just not going to happen. Right? If susceptibility there you opportunities there. Right, if something like it? Yeah. So I totally understand how people even if they knew what the danger vaccine were, they still like didn’t dare not do it. They were still thinking, Yeah, but what if my dog gets horrible? What is my email or whatever. And so that book actually provides alternative. So many people have used it. I have incredible stories from that. Yeah, and then, but the book that I say, I was put on earth to write is the book that just called dogs, which also to have their, you know, their being of their existence of, of the reason they’re here, you know, with us and all that.

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah. And is that the picture of the black lab on the cover?

Aleks Mikic

Oh no, that’s the immunization one. The one, it just says a little brown mud. And actually, it’s perfect, really, for that book, because that started, because I was getting upset, listening to people talk about how a dog evolved from a wolf. So I actually set out to write a dissertation to disprove it, because I’m like, this cannot go on. And so then it became like, actually, more than that became more than just this really.

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah. And as part of my own studies into animal and veterinary Heilkunst, I read both of your books and loved both of them. What I recall that I really enjoyed was where you talked about raw foods versus where the regular dog food comes from, and why it’s often sprayed pink is it’s from sources, you know, that have animals that have either died or been heavily medicated, and they have to spray it with this pink goo, to actually eradicate bacteria. That’s from animals that are not healthy. And then your animals going to eat that and I just remember, like, pay for reading this in your book and go, Oh, that’s so gross. I’ve never forgotten that. And I’ve been quoting that and quoting you for, you know, decades now. Because yeah, that was such a profound insight, along with many others. So yeah,

Aleks Mikic

Well, there are several problems right when it comes to pet food. The problem number one is that we tend to think of nutrition for animals as we think of nutrition for people. So if you look at any bag of dog or cat food out there, and you can see how proudly they’re displaying, even holistic brands have proudly they’re displaying that we are including their fruits or vegetables, you know, in this food, and I’m like, That makes no sense. So that’s number one. So even if you have really good intention, but you don’t understand what an animal is, and what they should eat, you go wrong. And then, of course, on top of that, we have all these profit driven interests that really could care less about animal health. Yeah,

Allyson McQuinn

Well, because we’re in nature do animals, you know, even if they’re wild dogs in Mexico, where we live, you know, they’re not generally foraging for rice or wrote it’s just not something they’re looking for in their diet. So when you pick up these bags of very expensive dog food, it’s it’s a lot of filler still, even though it’s supposed to be holistic. And so yeah, I’m, I’m right there with you. We’ve always had our our dogs raw food from the end, it’s not difficult, and it’s not expensive. In fact, it’s a lot cheaper than those very expensive bags. For sure. Yeah.

Aleks Mikic

We actually had a client who fed her dogs completely free, because she found a local butcher. And she said she would just head there once a week with an empty backpack, and he would fill it with scraps, and she had healthiest, most beautiful dog was always complimenting. But that’s how it works. So yeah, you absolutely don’t need, you know, much. And what is so important is for people to really understand the holographic nature of the organism, and how, based on any single part, you can, desk for the entire makeup, the entire every organism is hold space important all the time. And so teeth are a perfect example of that. Because we have several kinds of teeth, and we can see how different animals right, you just need to look at the teeth. And you know what that animal is, you know, what it needs to eat, you know what environment it needs to live in, like, it’s all there. So, for example, when you look at a cow, all teeth are flat, there is no nothing sharp there. Canines do not exist. In fact, there are holes, right, they don’t even have the top top portion. Because they’re really meant to break down cellulose. And they have to really grind it right. And so and their jaw moves side to side. And then direct opposite from that. A rodents whose jaw moves only back and forth. So they are meant to break things. They’re meant to, you know, to remove, you know, to break open nuts to everything to destroy, right. So they’re actually role in nature is to destroy everything that needs to be destroyed. So their job was like that cow moves like this. A human whose job moves every way, right? We can do it either way. So we can consume all sorts of foods. So when people are arguing what’s the right food for a human being, it’s like, well, our tea towels, we can handle it all we truly can. And then we get to carnivores. Now their jaw does not move. Their jaw only opens and closes. So that means all they’re meant to do is grab onto something right onto an animal, they’re meant to rip that out and they’re meant to crush it and swallow. They don’t chew that food anytime in their mouth. You know, except for right just crushed, swallow, crushed swallow. And so that tells you that you know there is nothing in their makeup that is meant to be grinding, chewing, you know, like everything that’s needed to process plant material. So they simply cannot do that. It’s wrong to feed them these things. I think I said it in the book. Because of so many foods containing corn. I said your dog comes up on a stalk of corn is gonna eat it or is he gonna just lift his leg? Second one. Well, look at it. It’s good because it’s not.

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah, well. Can you practice Alex? Which animals have you mostly treated and focused on?

Aleks Mikic

Mostly dogs. Second cats. Third horses. Yeah, and everything else here and there some parents some cows.

Allyson McQuinn

And what’s the most exotic animal that you’ve ever treated in your practice?

Aleks Mikic

Probably Iguana. Yeah. Yeah. And then, you know, I inadvertently, treated, I mean, sometimes on purpose, but sometimes, like left to nature, you know, the wildlife. Like, I had a, I worked for a long time with a wildlife rehabilitator that lives nearby. And her issue was the raccoons that would get distemper and she would lose, she obviously, she raises like, dozens and dozens of babies every spring, and then they would, they would get distemper, they would all like most of them would die, then the trouble would happen when she lives close to the woods. So they would just, you know, kind of be gently released into the woods, but they always knew what home is. So they would get sick, then they would just come home. And then they would get all the baby’s sick. And then I mean, it was just a disaster. So when we did, we set up the pails of water along the edge of the property with this temporary also in it. And so they would, you know, the wild records would just come in drink as needed, because animals will always like you can leave in two waterfalls, but they would go for domesticated money, they need it. And you know, and they will, the healthy ones won’t be avoided that gorgeous or whatever is known as intimating towards the animals, what they do. And so yeah, so after that she didn’t she didn’t have that issue. That was super cool. Yeah.

Allyson McQuinn

I love that. And with regards to large animals, small animals, you’re able to treat them all by distance, and, you know, give us details about how you also do that.

Aleks Mikic

Right, Correct. Yeah, they can all be treated by distance. Because, you know, remedies can appear anywhere. We have really several ways, right, like remedies can be shipped to an owner who uses them, they can be used as paper remedies, they can be radiologically projected into the Bible that the owner has. I mean, the ways are many. So yeah, distance is not is never been an issue.

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah. I find that as well. Awesome. And so tell me what your goals are for your practice working with our Kanem you’re able to take, you know, several dogs, cats, maybe even horses per week.

Aleks Mikic

Yes. Absolutely.

Allyson McQuinn

Okay, brilliant. And my. Well, yeah, totally, I am so overwhelmed with and I’m sure you’re also in a similar place where you have a very full practice. And so the animals for me, I really need you to come on board because it’s just been so overwhelming. My practices is jam full. And so being able to show shoulder that load with you is a huge relief for me. So I thank you so much, though. One thing to note is that you have been the educator for the Hahnemann college for you were for many, many years with regards to the veterinary modules you actually taught and tutored. And so yeah, to have you on board is is just awesome for us. And, yeah, I have questions for you as well within my own practice. So I look forward to connecting with you in that regard. You can hear the rooster in the farm next to.

Aleks Mikic

Yes

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah, we have goats that I’ve been helping with at the farm back here in Canada. So yeah, it’s a fully operating farm and somebody always have an injured leg or, you know, I treated a dog for peeing issues. So no more paying issues and you know, they were peeing on the furniture and defiance. So that was an interesting thing to look up in the repertory and material. And so, yeah, I love how powerful it is. Because yeah, you can solve something as simple as that. The dogs not or the cats not pissed off anymore.

Aleks Mikic

Right, great. Yeah, that’s the beauty of working with animals because they don’t have preconceived notions. So you just know, you know, right away.

Allyson McQuinn

Yeah, it’s my favorite aspect is, well, children and animals are wonderful, like you say, because they don’t question or they don’t, you know, defy what it is that you suggested or remedies. They just like you said, you put them down in that second bowl, they drink them, and then, you know, the care happens, and there’s no kind of questioning what’s gone on. So there’s no skepticism and an animal which is such. Yeah. Well, Alex, I want to thank you so much for taking the time to join me. We have individuals who are already ready to be shuttled right into your practice right away. And so I’m super excited to like I said to be able to provide them safe and accurate and skillful landing placed in your capable hands as our new veterinary Heilkunst slur. So thank you. And we love having you on board.

Aleks Mikic

Oh, excited, looking forward to meeting them all.

Allyson McQuinn

Awesome. Take good care, and we’ll talk again very soon.

Aleks Mikic

Thank you.
