“We live in a disease society not a wellness society. Prevention is better than waiting for an illness and then trying to treat the illness because pathology doesn’t exist. Pathology is adaptive physiology, a response in the body to an immune system disorder.”

Dr. Kneebone is the human for Shotsy and Sunny (cats) and Rocky (dog). Dr. Kneebone’s favourite things about her pets:
“What I like about my pets is what they teach or remind me of everyday:
Rocky, our canine friend; reminds me everyday about being happy to be alive, to be ready to go to enjoy life and everything it has to offer. Shotsy, the older cat, about being “aloof” and independent but always there when he’s needed and finally, the younger kitty Sunny—he’s pure altruistic love curled up in the curve of my arm or pressed into the small of my back purring me to sleep.”
Dr. Kneebone enjoys cycling, stargazing, swimming, quiet country life and farming.
