Follow Dr. Stephen R. Blake aka The Barefoot Veterinarian on the Pacific Crest Trail 2016.
Being from the Native American Wantabe and Indian Tribe that I have always been, it was a NATURAL fit for me to finally go on a BIG VISION QUEST, called the Pacific Crest Trail. I had known about and dreamed about walking this AMAZING journey for decades ago. After being the Laboratory of life for 68+ years (May 26, 1947) , I finally decided to give myself a 69th Birthday present from my wife Charene, to walk the Pacific Crest Trail SOLO from the Mexican border two miles south of Campo California to the Washington State Canadian border, 2663.5 miles long mas o menos 🙂 . I left on April 10, 2016 at 9 AM PCT. Saying goodbye to my lovely wife Charene, walking barefoot with a full pack on my back and no idea what adventures lie ahead for me.
You can follow me on Facebook (Stephen Blake), Instagram (thepetwhisperer) , Twitter @thepetwhisperer or on my web site www.thepetwhisperer.com . I am carrying a solar panel on my backpack to charge my Apple 6+ phone and where possible will upload video, audio and photos of my journey for all to share.
How does a 69 years young male American walk 2663.5 miles with a full pack mostly barefoot? Good question LOL. Years of practicing what he has shared with his clients, friends and family for decades as a holistic veterinarian. You can read all about my holistic journey on my web site about Dr Blake www.thepetwhisperer.com .
I have dedicated this quest for PEACE for all Creatures Great and Small. My message is a simple ONE. Avoid prescriptions drugs, chemicals and vaccines. Live as Mindful a life as you possibly can, rest, exercise and eat in a healthy moderate manner. Worry is the MOST TOXIC substance on the planet. DO NOT WORRY. Oceans of Peace.
Day 18, mile 320 on the Pacific Crest Trail. My Tevas and barefeet have seen 90 degree F, 50 mph winds, freezing rain, hale, snow, over 9000 feet elevation, rock, sand, freezing water, wet sleeping bag, 26 degree F temperatures and are still smiling. Please share🙏 Oceans of Peace ✌️
I am now at 1100 miles in Lake Tahoe resting before I head north on the next 1600 miles to Canada
The following is a list of what I use in my daily practice of HEALTH. HEALTH is OPTIMUM CELL REPLICATION and requires a balance of MIND, BODY and SPIRIT.
My daily go to has been Bovine Colostrum . I have taken it every day for the 18 years and it has been a life saver for me and many others. I recommend both Imutek:http://www.thepetwhisperer.com/health-tips/colostrum/

On the trail and at home I want to make sure I get fresh GREEN food each and every day. The easy and best way is to eat Klamath Lake Blue Algea from my friends Greg Emerson and Stella Fokas’s company The Edge Tm. They are both amazing and have dedicated their lives to providing the world with the best product they possibly can for both people and all creatures great and small. I take it daily to make sure I have a pure natural source of all my vitamins, minerals and trace minerals each day. I am taking ten a day for my journey and highly recommend them for all creatures great and small. You can order them by simply clicking here: http://theedgeup.ca/?aff=9
My ONLY sourse of green food for 1100 miles and 75 days on the PCT has been 6 to 9 capsules of The Edge each day and I am healthier and stronger than I have been in my 69+ years in the laboratory of Life. Please order and use this amazing super food daily and your benefit will be optimum cell replication, aka health🙏👍 Just DO IT👍Please share✌️🙏❤️ Ubuntu✌️❤️
I also make Gemmotherapy my part of my daily practice at home and on the trail. You can read about this amazing plant based, phytotherapy for detoxing and strengthening every cell in your body. You can learn about and order these amazing products from my website http://www.thepetwhisperer.com/health-tips/gemmotherapy/
.For this trip I am taking Common Juniper for my liver and kidney support, Lime tree from my nervous system, Fig Tree for my GI system, Wild Woodvine for my joints, Common Birch for general cleansing and inflammation issues anywhere in my body especially my hips, Rosemary for gallbladder and mental clarity, Mountain Pine for back support. European Olive is excellent for circulation and endurance. I mix these in my drinking water each day 5 drops each and sip on it as needed throughout my many hours along the PCT each day. If feel an area in my body that needs extra attention I take more of the particular Gemmotherapy specific for that area of need. You can order this at along with my book on the use of Gemmotherapy at.
Dr Gemmo aka Meicine Man is 76
I do not use chemicals of any kind on my patients, pets, family, Mother Earth or me to repel insects of any kind. I use Young Living Essential oils for repelling my friends the insects. You read about what blends I use and how to order them at http://www.thepetwhisperer.com/health-tips/oilguide/
Please do your best to not pollute Mother Earth, your family or yourself.
For joint health I recommend and take 1-TDC , a nutritional supplement that helps my joints and that of my animal friends, stay well lubricated and healthy. To learn more about this amazing supplement go to http://www.thepetwhisperer.com/health-tips/arthritis/
I ONLY take ONE Traditional Herbal Formula and it is Shou Wu produced by Far East Summit Chinese Classics. I take ten drops each day as general tonic which is safe to take daily for optimum performance. To order you must go through your health professional and ask for the Far East Summit Chinese Classic Shou Wu. Tell your health professional that if they do not already have an account with Far East Summit Chinese Classic Herbs, to call them at 888-441-0489 . Ask the order to set up a wholesale account and to use the code 12436 to get their best wholesale price. Ask to speak with Bill and have them mention Dr. Stephen Blake recommended them to their company. Mahalo.
Earthing is my bread and butter for staying healthy in a toxic world created by mankind. We all need to connect with Mother Earth and benefit from her healing powers by making direct contact with her with your skin. I call this kissing Mother Earth. When I am barefooting, I am in direct contact with the healing powers of the Earth. When I sleep I am connected via Earthing products which you can learn about at: Here!
At this point of the 1100 miles I have logged 120 miles barefoot and remaining 980 miles in Teva Sandals.
I will be away from my veterinary practice for five months and would be grateful for any donations to help support my walk for Peace for ALL Creatures great and small. You can make your love offering to our paypal account Petwhisperer1@aol.com or through this Paypal button below. Thank you all for your prayers and support. Amandla Awethu Ubuntu.
I Am Alive
Medicine Man/Dr.Stephen Blake
The stillness of my quiet mind is deafening,
The pain of my frozen feet keep me smiling.
The knowing without knowing I will never die,
Keeps my heart smiling as I soar into the deep blue sky.
With each frozen step on a path I could not see,
My heart burst with the joy of being alone and free.
As far as my eyes could see,
An endless white ocean of ice and snow is all that was before me.
When the dark shadow of fear would appear,
Spirit would speak from deep within,
In the silence of Spirit I knew there was no end,
One magical breath made the myth of fear quickly disappear .
Looking down a thousand foot wall of ice,
Made me take a breath and think twice.
One frozen footstep away from certain death,
Made me stop, pause and give thanks for my next breath.
The Pacific Crest Trail lay deep beneath the snow,
All alone I had to trust I was in the know.
As far as I could see,
A white sea lay eternal before me.
Howling cold winds would freeze my hands and feet,
Breathing in, breathing out, iceman’s spirit brought on the heat.
Walking Twelve to Fourteen hours a day,
I would smile from deep within, no matter what came my way.
Roaring frozen waterways greeted me many times each and every day,
Each and every time I would pray,
Thank you Spirit for not letting me be swept away,
Thank you Spirit for letting Medicine Man live another day.
Walking barefoot on a frozen trail,
I felt Mother Earth send me warmth, love and a knowing I would prevail.
Laying in my small tent upon the frozen ground,
A freezing wind at my door it would pound.
Breathing in, breathing out, I am Alive I would shout,
In my smiling heart no matter what was about.
Everyday I smiled and gave thanks,
I was alive and ready to embrace Nature’s next pranks.
After many weeks another miracle came my way,
My brother the sun came out to play.
Even better, he decided to stay all day,
Slowly I could feel my feet each and everyday.
Mindfulness has been my saving grace
No matter what my pace, I always knew it was not a race.
When my food and water would get low,
I would look within and give thanks for being in the show.
Days of ice, cold, snow, wind and a trail with no end,
Greeted me each day , I knew they were all my friends.
At over 13,000 feet I shouted to the four winds,
I AM ALIVE and there is no end.
In the vast void of sound,
Feet frozen to the ground.
Alone but not alone,
The Great Spirit always sent me a bone.
It came as the breath of the angel’s wings behind the wind,
An amazing vista with no end.
A ray of warm sunshine,
The knowing without knowing there was no time.
When I was feeling all alone,
A little grasshopper would appear.
Into my path he would he would leap,
Seeing his smile made me weep.
Tears of joy from my eyes,
Another beautiful day, another amazing sunrise.
Then one day another miracle came my way,
The snow and ice had melted away. Finally I could see my way.
Easy, light and dry I would repeat,
Finally warm dirt was beneath my bare feet.
A permanent smile came over me,
I shouted I am ALIVE and I am FREE.
1600 miles to go,
In my heart I know I am the show.
My thoughts are mine to share and keep,
I am ALIVE and there is no defeat.
OCEANS of PEACE and LOVE
