If you have been around a few years, as I have, you may have noticed that the health of the world, both in people and animals, is deteriorating. Canine health is no exception. When I was at school, I don’t recall anyone having a health issue that needed medication to be taken at school.
As a family, we had a lot of pets, but the vet was rarely visited because our animals just weren’t sick.
These days, school teachers need to be as adept at administering drugs as they are at teaching. Animal health issues are at an all time high with serious and previously unheard of diseases now becoming common. Pets don’t live as long as the did.
Allergies are so common almost everyone has them. Diabetes is on the rise in both humans and animals. Gum disease in cats is the most common problem I am asked about. Cancer is gaining momentum.
What’s happening to life on Earth? Health is spiraling out of control. And it will continue to decline until the causes are addressed.
They may be many causes, but I believe there are two important ones. Ones that can easily be rectified today. And these are diet and health care. Just addressing these important issues can improve canine health exponentially.
First, diet. If you, or your dog, are not eating quality, natural, species appropriate food, how can you ever expect to be healthy, to prevent disease? Dogs have evolved over millions of years. Do you really think that humans have managed to unlock the key to a nutritious diet in a few measly decades?
They may claim to have done, through clever marketing skills. But can you really pit us against nature? Could this claim have more to do with profit than health or truth?
The enormous growth of human junk food doesn’t come close to that which passes for dog food. As there are no laws (enforceable ones) that determine the quality of dog food, anything can be used with impunity. The enormous death toll of animals poisoned by their food is rising. Commercial pet food recalls are at an all time high.
So the first step you can take is to be responsible for the food you feed your dog. Really responsible. Buy all the ingredients and make it yourself. It’s not difficult.
Second, health care. If the common medical health care system was so good, would health be declining so fast? Surely, the health of dogs would be improving, not declining? Surely there would be fewer diseases, not more? Surely dogs would be living longer lives, not shorter? Surely diabetes, so rare in dogs a few years ago, would have disappeared?
To me, this shows there is a serious flaw in the medical system. It is not resolving problems, it is creating them. Homeopaths know that drugs suppress the body’s natural ability to heal itself. And this is showing up all too clearly in the health of dogs today. Suppression of one problem invariably causes the rise of another, more serious, one. However, it seems that only homeopaths, and other natural therapists, are able to see the connection.
There is a saying that goes something like this – there is none so blind as those who don’t want to see.
People don’t understand the innate ability every being has of healing themselves. People panic very easily. A dog choking on a bone can sound serious if you are unused to it, but this is a healthy response by the dog to clear the bone. Rarely will this be serious. Being frightened of possible (and normally rare) impending doom is encouraged by those who profit by your concern.
You can take responsibility for your dog’s health, by choosing to use homeopathy as the health care system of choice. Homeopathy works by supporting your dog’s natural healing abilities. It enhances it, clearing blockages, raising the immune system, creating ever more healthy dogs. This is true health care, when the patient becomes naturally resistant to disease, whatever the strain, whatever the micro-organism.
