When I made the decision to transition from a busy rehabilitation clinic to a one-woman show, I enlisted a branding company to help me relate to the public exactly what it is that makes my approach to animal wellness unique. What are the words or phrases or images that help someone who is seeking a better way of health caring for their animals find me? The result of months of their discoveries was Dr. Frick’s LifeExtend Method®.
That is what it is about; innately coordinating a set of well-studied, scientifically based, philosophies and professions, uniquely integrated in such a way that the union of them create an energetic potential greater than any of the individualized entities could alone. The end result beingextending lives that are vibrant, that have quality along with quantity, where the animal parent feels good about that relationship and their commitment.
My LifeExtend Method philosophy and delivery, along with being based in traditional veterinary teachings, is expanded by the addition of a Functional Medicine approach. Where the environment, both from an emotional state as well as exposure potentials, are explored. Emotional, is how well the family unit or barn staff and that particular animal’s mental states blend together. Exposure potentials include not just toxins [chemicals and heavy metals], but also virus, bacteria, parasites, allergens, molds, fungus, radiation, and high-power frequencies. It addresses life style, the body’s current condition both metabolically and functionally; assessing systems, organs, glands, tissue, and cellular, all the way to individual cell metabolism. Then offering up a workable plan to eliminate, support, and rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.
Chiropractic is an important aspect to maintaining a strong body through posture, biomechanics, and nervous system stability, function, and feedback. Every nerve moving from and to the brain along the spinal cord exits or enters that “highway” via openings between joint spaces. Every system, organ or gland, every part of the body,is dependent on and effected by the fluid movement of every joint in the body and the nerves traversing those spaces. Nerves are the messengers and without their ability to get to and from – pain, disease and aging ensues. Any deviation from optimal function or motion within any joint space will alter nerve messages between the brain and the body. A chiropractic session can instantly create positive results and it is a key service that bodies need to maintain a long functional life and continually rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.
Exercise is also part of keeping the body in motion. Exercise can be fun, when delivered in the correct gradients for that individual. I designed a low-impact program of stretching called “Tai Chi-huahua™.” I am a FitPAWS Master Trainer and can create fun balance and posture training games for you and your dog, and sometimes the cat. I have a DVD called “Stretching Exercises” that covers every zone of the body, giving step-by-step direction on how to deliver each particular exercise program. This extends to horses as well as demonstrated in my published book; “Fitness in Motion; Keeping Your Equine’s Zones in Peak Performance.” While the book is now out of publication, those same key massage and exercise techniques are available as a flash drive, “Exercises for Horses.” Good posture, balance, and coordination is about fitness in motion because a motionless or stiff body will begin to degenerate. Exercise to any degree is a window that opens flows that then rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.
Everything in life is about Energy. Everything responds to, functions, grows and changes based on wave lengths (frequency), wave heights (amplitude), and wave patterns or waveform. There are some that are beneficial and others that are dangerous; meaning they can alter cells at a microcellular level. In 1997 I discovered Low Level Laser (LLL) as a beneficial therapeutic modality and I created and was the inciting developer of LLL“Spinal Pads” for animals and humans. But that wasn’t enough. In 1999 I began looking toward the human medical industry to find what they had for pain that I could modify for animals. Enter; Alpha-Stim® technology. Alpha-Stim is a way to introduce back to the body a gentle proprietary waveform at a low frequency that is in harmony with living species. It does not shock the body into doing anything but gently nudges the cells back toward optimal function, replication, and healing. With that accumulative effect, this therapeutic microcurrent device can reduce or eliminate pain, stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. See what I have created with this company for animal use at www.alphastimforanimals.com.
Growing up on a farm I learned early on the importance of good Nutrition. When I realized that what is in the bag is less than nutritional goodness, I made it my new mission to learn how to introduce it to clients and their animals. Out came my college nutrition books andI aligned with Standard Process to learn about whole food nutrition and quality supplementation. Using food, nature’s medicine, I began to see improved progress in my patients. The better I got at picking the correct item, the quicker they regained better health. There were pet parents whose traditional doctor had told them their animal would soon die, or would never get off of steroids, but we were doing it! Many late nights reading, studying, and figuring it out so that I would own the knowledge, was paying off. Another pillar wasnow in place.
While that was getting closer to the ideal, there remained times when I still felt like I was guessing at what to recommend regarding supplements. I struggled when an animal was not getting well at the rate I expected. And while I enjoy a good game of darts, I dislike the notion that this is how doctors decide what medication to use on a body. But in reality, it is that way. Scientific but certainly not individualized. Enter Kinesiology. Another ‘aha!’ moment. Here is how I would check the item and it’s energetic potentials against what the body actually needs or wants. Now the window was open for customized care, assessments, and recommendations.
Over the years I have developed a very specialized system for determining the status of organs, glands, any interferences [virus, bacteria, toxins, parasites, etc.], and then a customized treatment plan with options of therapy, supplements, and even medications when most appropriate. This took the guess work out of my style and introduced a greater level of certainty as well as the ability to target precisely where the problem is and how to handle it. And that is another part of LifeExtend Method and how we get the happy, healthy and rejuvenated animals.
In 2005, still looking to find the real arsonist, I began studying Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. H-TMA is a scientific laboratory test that uses a hair sample, a DNA blueprint of the past 90 days, and through spectrophotometry, can determine the mineral and toxic metal levels within the tissue of that individual. Every mineral is connected to the others, interlocking and shifting, so as to keep the body functioning best. Understanding this is like working a challenging puzzle. And just as with puzzles, once you have done enough of them, the route to the end becomes easier and easier. By immersing myself into this science, I added a streamline toward knowing the nutrients that are lacking or in excess. Doing this test takes a huge chunk of guess work out of the kaleidoscope going on inside each body. It becomes like a crystal ball, revealing what was going on in the past that got one to this point, and what the future will be if changes are not made. I have published a research paper on this topic and written an educational book that teaches doctors how to integrate this wonderful science and test into their practice’s nutrition model, and am considered one of the leading experts on this topic in the veterinary field.
I am a teacher, but also a student. And some of my best lessons have come from my clients. Case in point was when I was introduced to Ayurveda. While I had taken a 180 hour course on Herbal Phytotherapy in 2003, introducing me to herbs of India, it was merely 5 years ago when I began to learn more about Ayurveda. A client practiced the teachings of this very old India philosophy and medicine. His dog Burney was struggling and he asked me to learn about it in order to help him. He offered to help me along the way. That experience opened thought processes that I had never considered. It gave me new ways to observe and understand what the animal was experiencing and why. And then how to implement better approaches to achieve wellness. It has improved my health and with it I have made inroads to sharing Ayurveda with clients and their fur-babies.
Essential Oils are ancient methods of supporting the immune system, treating ailments and diseases, and supporting the body, mind, and soul. They can be delivered topically, diffused, and some taken orally. Plants have so much good to offer. They are from the earth, of the earth, and can reunite cells in many healing ways. When the correct essential oil is used, there can be magnificent changes throughout. When selecting which is best, I use my kinesiology technique so the guess factor is removed. And now, in 2021, the introduction of Oberon.Developed,since the early 1990’s, by Russian scientists, OBERON is the most revolutionary computer programmed invention available in the world today for analyzing and treating all the body’s organs and functions. This system is based on biofeedback, bioresonance, biofrequencies, and quantum mechanics, analyzed using Non-Linear Statistical Analysis.OBERON can detect the root cause of frequency imbalances in minutes with 95-98% accuracy and has the ability to deliver both diagnostics and therapy in a single session.It is the most unique tool for scanning the various organs and systems of the physical body without having to do blood tests or biopsies.
Biofeedback utilizes the fact that each organ, tissue, and cell in a body has a distinct frequency which is made possible by the rotation of atoms in the cells. When instructions are sent to the body from the brain, they use the spinal cord to send those instructions via nerves and other molecular aids. As long as the connection between the brain and the spine is intact, biofeedback systems can use the brain to listen in and pick up the information.Oberon, can trace the changes in pathology and infections by observing the characteristics of these wavelengths and the changes in the tissues and cells of the body. This utilization of frequency analysis is based on the incredible discovery in natural science which allows us to analyze the magnetic vortex of any biological object.
This system can be applied when the animal is in the office and it can also be used via the mechanisms of Quantum physics and DNA-cell-body recognition. It allows me to assess animals, the pathology and causes, as well as treat in a single session. Then I can make tinctures to send home for continued therapy between visits.
Now there are two options for scanning and diagnosing; me the computer, or Oberon the computer.
My philosophy is that traditional practices seek to put out fires, I work at finding the arsonist, and then there are no fires. That is why Dr. Frick’s LifeExtend Method is successful in creating happy, healthy, and naturally rejuvenated animals.
