There is a common perception that disease is inevitable. Canine diseases loom in this theory as much as in any other species. This article aims to show you that this is actually a misconception, and that it is possible for you to prevent or successfully treat yourself, virtually all canine diseases.
There is an abundance of theories at large, that trap you into thinking that the disease your dog has, or may have in the future, comes without a cause or a reason, that it is inevitable and that you will need to provide expensive veterinary treatment.
There is never an illness without a cause. It’s more a question of whether the therapist wants to examine the cause. Or if the therapist has been taught to look for causes.
Veterinarians are not taught to look for causes. Instead they are taught to match a medication to a particular disease.
Homeopaths, on the other had, are taught to look for causes.
One of the main causes of ill health, in anyone, is diet related. You can’t expect to have radiant health if you are eating nutrient deficient food. The same holds true for your dog.
Most dogs are fed commercial dog food, because veterinarians recommend them and the industry spends a great deal of money on persuading you that their product is the real deal.
First, vets are not taught about nutrition at vet school. So they know little about it unless they are self taught. You’ll find that holistic vets know a lot about nutrition. And they advice, very strongly, to avoid commercial dog food.
Why is this?
The dog food industry are corporations. Corporations are more interested in their bottom line than in the health of your dog. They care little about animals, feeling they can easily be replaced.
Commercial dog food is, almost exclusively, harmful to your dog. If you like, it’s the junk food of the dog world. It does nothing to keep your dog in a healthy condition. It is nutrient deficient and contains many ingredients that are toxic.
Over the years, this builds up, lowering the immune system and so allowing ill health to creep in.
The very first thing you can do, whether your dog has a disease or not, is to adopt a quality, natural diet. You can see that this has a profound effect on the immune system, as they revert to being playful, energetic puppies again.
The second thing you can do is to treat any ailment with holistic medicine, such as homeopathy. Homeopathy has no side effects, is non-toxic and works by strengthening the immune system.
Canine diseases can be a thing of the past when you adopt these two simple strategies. Your dog is likely to live a longer life, with an easy passing at the end.
