Pronounced "thoo'-yuh," Thuja occidentalis is derived from the northern white cedar, Arbor vitae, which means "Tree of Life." Thuja is the primary vaccinosis (adverse reaction to a vaccination) remedy for cats and dogs. If you must have your pet vaccinated, it is a good idea to give a dose of Thuja within two hours following the injection. Thuja can also be helpful in case of immediate vaccine reactions such as vomiting or diarrhea occurring within a few hours of the shot. If you miss the immediate window of opportunity, however, don't worry - Thuja homeopathic remedy can be administered at any time following vaccinations.
Thuja can be helpful to resolve ongoing symptoms of vaccinosis, which may result in a wide array of immediate symptoms like fatigue, muscle pain, weakness, fever, etc., following administration of a vaccine, as well as carry long term effects that may appear weeks or months after your pet is vaccinated. Long term effects of over-vaccination include skin eruptions at the vaccine site, skin and respiratory allergic symptoms, respiratory infections, digestive issues, and even arthritis. For more information on the topic of vaccination and the risks associated with over-vaccination, please see our article, The Truth About Vaccinations, in our Holistic Healthcare Library.
Thuja is also helpful for symptoms of disorders that affect the skin, including warts, rashes, eruptions, cysts, and tumors. Other major body systems that may be benefited by Thuja are the gastrointestinal system (it is excellent for "sputtery" diarrhea) and the urinary tract (some cases of chronic cystitis may be helped by this remedy).
Thuja is available in a 1 oz liquid, 125 pellets and 500 pellets.
