Veterinarians Love Noni Products
All though the true traditional use for thousands of years by Polynesians and Hawaiians was to eat the raw Noni fruit, the ethno botanist at the University of Hawaii point out that they first used Noni fruit topically for skin irritations. According to them, it was after observing animals (birds, pigs, dogs, etc.) eating Noni fruit and remaining very healthy that the early Polynesians developed the internal uses themselves.
The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association
I have been attending the AHVMA(Amercian Holistic Veterinary Medical Association) convention for several years. The members of this organization are licensed Veterinarians that have adopted a holistic pet care approach to animal health care using herbs, Chinese medicines, acupuncture, etc. I love attending these conventions and working with the different Veterinarians, as there is no Placebo Effect with animals. In other words, either our organic Noni products work or they do not work. An animal does not question: “What are you giving me? How soon will it work? What does it taste like? Will I get diarrhea?" The Vets give the animals our Noni Fruit Leather or use the noni lotion and Bio Bandage topically – it either heals or it does not heal. Guess what? Our Noni products do promote natural healing, wellness and energy in animals.
Also vets have found that our Noni Fruit Leather is great for over all maintenance of good health in your pet. It supports a healthy response to inflammation, boosts the immune system and supports the digestive tract. The Pet Noni Lotion is great for soothing skin irritations and general itching.
Veterinarians Using Noni
On the Website, you will find two articles interviewing Veterinarians using our Noni products.
In “Use of Noni Lotion, Noni Fruit Leather Catches on in Veterinary Care”, Dr. Adrienne Moore, D.V.M. discusses the use of our Noni products on dogs, cats and horses.
“I frequently use the Noni Lotion on a variety of skin irritations’. I have owners give the fruit leather orally to dogs who require immune boosting. It can either be placed in the food or rolled up and administered like a ‘pill.’”
Dr. Moore also uses Lavender Noni Lotion on cats, even making noni lotion by dissolving the Noni Fruit Leather (other veterinarians prefer Lavender Noni Lotion directly).
Dr. Moore frequently uses noni products and colostrum together for immune-compromised animals. Some animals will eat the Noni Fruit Leather but for the ones that refuse to eat it, Noni Fruit Leather can be torn into small pieces and hidden in food or administered like a pill.
One of the surprisingly biggest areas of demand is for use with horses. That’s because doctors and owners have discovered noni fruit is extremely effective at soothing common equine skin irritations.
“I have found noni lotion to be more effective than any of the other concoctions used by my clients,” she says. “I recently had a case that almost completely resolved after using noni lotion for just three days.”
"My sister raises horses in Texas plus she has 14 Border Collies. It was from her that we first learned how well the Lavender Noni Lotion and Noni Bio Bandage work on horses and dogs. She called me one day screaming in the phone with excitement, “It addressed the skin issue on four of my horses. Do you understand how great this is – nothing else has ever worked”.
The other article, Large and Small, Noni Gains as Pets’ Best Nutrition Friend interviews two different Vets.
“I think noni fruit leather is a very useful, very safe, very broad-acting supplement,” says Dr. Joyce Harman of Virginia, who has been practicing holistic pet care, primarily on horses, since 1991. “I use the noni fruit leathers regularly and quite successfully for a lot of immune-system issues. She continues, “I use the noni lotions and salves mostly for joint pain, tendon/ligament pain and persistent skin problems.” Priscilla Dressen, a veterinarian at North Star Holistic Animal Care in Fort Collins, Colorado, also swears by noni products from Hawaiian Organic Noni. “I use noni fruit leather on all geriatric patients. I offer the fruit leather more to older animals because I’m looking for immune response and anti-inflammatory effects,” she says. Priscilla has also had great success with the Bio Bandage. “The noni products were the first thing" to clear up a dachsund’s skin irritation.
Mahalo from everyone on the farm!
