I am the director of Reunion Rescue and Animals First Rescue. Reunion Rescue was started over
10 years ago to save pit bulls. Over the years I have come to find that a good raw diet and
holistic healing is beneficial not only for pit bulls, but for all animals rescued or otherwise.
Around a year ago, I came into possession of a female Staffie Bull who had been living at a
finder's home. She exhibited no aggression and was very dog and people friendly. She even went
to the dog park every day. When the finder had to leave town for vacation, I offered to foster
Raspberry. She began her heat cycle the minute she came to my house, so we scheduled her
for a spay operation the next day.
Raspberry came home from the hospital a very different dog. She was extremely aggressive and
went for my husband's face. I was shocked. I had never seen this sort of a change in behavior
before. I contacted the animal communication group and asked someone to speak with
Raspberry. Not only was Raspberry suffering from the ill effects of a rabies vaccine, but she had
been through a very hard surgery in which they had been far from gentle.
We began a long path of holistic treatments to save Raspberry. There is no known detox for the
rabies vaccine. Raspberry and I literally began a path into the unknown. I researched everything
I could find related to rabies vaccinosis. We tried long term approaches which showed some
relief, but I could tell Raspberry was suffering beyond my ability to help her.
She slowly overcame her human aggression, much thanks to my husband who refused to let her
be afraid of him. However, I could still not walk her near other dogs or animals. She was kept in
our spare office where she chewed the windowsills off the wall, a direct symptom of rabies
vaccinosis. I was finally able to find a place which observed the leash law and was able to being
taking Raspberry for walks. I knew she needed exercise to get better. We attempted three dog
classes, but Raspberry was just not ready for group classes. We were even kicked out of the
most renowned training classes in our region. At this point, I was beginning to feel hopeless. I
was even challenging my own commitment to rescue.
Then a series of events happened. I met a lady in rescue who told me of a local dog boarding
facility who just never meets a 'bad' dog. I called him about Raspberry. He arranged with me to
have Raspberry come to his facility the following Saturday. I was afraid. What if he couldn't help
Raspberry? What would we do then? I contacted the animal communication group again and was
blessed to meet Linda. She volunteered to do a Body Code session for Raspberry and conveyed
that transcript to me.
What I didn't know was Linda continued to work with Raspberry through the week. I had noticed
a change in Raspberry, but I thought it was the long term holistic work finally kicking in. I
received an email from Linda asking if I had noticed any change. I had and so had my husband.
We both reported that Raspberry seemed extra happy as if a light had come on inside her. What
we didn't know was Linda had been working with Raspberry all that week with the emotion codes
and readings. She even called in her colleague, Jayne, to help Raspberry by sending reiki. By the
time I received Linda's email, Raspberry was different and ready to go to her doggy day care.
On the way to introduce Raspberry to the facility, I got a text from Linda. She had done one
more BC session with Raspberry. In the session, Raspberry was found to need a supplement to
remove the rest of the metals from her system. It seems the mercury injected in her rabies
vaccine was causing the aggression. I just happened to have that supplement at home. I turned
around and made plans to pick it up and dose Raspberry before her meet and greet.
The results were astounding. Raspberry played off leash with something like forty dogs that day!
I had never seen anything like it. She spent two weeks at the boarding facility with nothing but
raves from the staff. Raspberry was perfect. She loves other dogs and has excellent dog
language. She is all about playing. There is not an agressive bone in her body. We have the
photos to show it, too. She came back to my house and plays with the dogs in my care all day
I feel as if I have been blessed with a gift. I do not think it was an accident that I met Linda. The
work she is doing is extraordinary. I believe that many dogs and animals in shelters put there for
behavior reasons are the result of these vaccines as poor Raspberry suffered so dramatically.
When I met Linda, I was at the end of my rope and questioning whether or not to continue to
rescue animals. After this amazing experience with Raspberry, I am now able to share her story
and help so many other people who are feeling that same hopelessness that I felt.
Since Raspberry, Linda has helped several other dogs in my care for several other issues. I
believe that Linda's work is phenomenal and can be the breakthrough animal people like myself
have been looking for. Thank you so much, Linda, for believing in Raspberry and helping her. I
know that Raspberry will find her forever home, but she is such a joy to be around and to love
that I know I am going to have a hard time giving her up. Raspberry and I owe our happy lives

Look at that smile! Hard
to believe that she
previously had to be kept
in isolation due to her
I feel really honored and beyond thrilled to have been able to help Raspberry (and many other
dogs) regain her cheerful and happy personality. So many animals come from bad situations,
and all those negative emotions that get trapped in their bodies often turn into bad behaviors.
Does YOUR dog have behavioral or health issues? Dr. Brad Nelson, the developer of the
Emotion Code & Body Code (used to help Raspberry), claims that 90% of dog's behavioral
issues can be benefit from the Emotion Code/Body Code. This is especially helpful for rescue
animals who often come from less than ideal previous conditions. Sometimes dogs that left
loving homes have Trapped Emotions as well due to their feelings of being abandoned.
As a dog trainer, I often see behavioral issues resolve much quicker once the emotional
'gunk' is cleared out. (For details and video - see Maggie's page.)
The Body Code is also helpful for dogs experiencing health issues. Though THEY can't tell you
what is wrong, their body knows. The Body Code lets me test to see what is going on and in
many cases fix it. It has saved me from vet visits MANY times!
I'd love to help YOUR dog reach their full potential.
