Neurological conditions are scary. They often present with little to no warning and while we may not completely understand neurological conditions, we do know that they can be supported by using essential oils.
NeuroBalance™ works to help support the neurological system in both dogs and cats with epilepsy, seizures, head tilts, vestibular disease, and head trauma as well as dogs with GME and other issues.
It is important to keep in mind that diffusing NeuroBalance™ isn't a miracle "cure" for a neurological condition. Neurological issues are very slow to heal and will likely need traditional medicine intervention. When one of our own dog's was diagnosed with GME she went through traditional chemotherapy treatment supported with daily NeuroBalance™ diffusion and still takes daily seizure medication today. She is however doing great!

Daily or every other day diffusion to support neurological issues and less frequently as neurological issues improve.
It is important to keep in mind that neurological issues are among the slowest to heal. You will need to stick with your new regimen for months before you may start to see results - often 3-5 months - longer for chronic conditions.
If your dog has had seizures for 5 years and you begin to support them with essential oils, give yourself 5 months of hard work and building their system back up with supplements, food changes, and modalities that support their neurological health. Remember - you are treating the whole animal. That is why it is called holistic! Learn more about supporting your dog's neurological health here.
