The fundamental philosophy of natural medicine is that the body has the ability to heal itself from within if given the opportunity.
Many diseases are named and treated ineffectively or misdiagnosed. Most diseases are the result of an imbalance in the biological terrain. It is a systematic approach to utilize holistic medicine along with conventional medicine to find the ideal solution. Optimum health can only be achieved when all forms of medicine are considered, and used for an effective treatment.
Disease prevention is just as important as treatment, so when we suggest a raw food diet, various herbs, supplements, and exercise we are initiating a prevention treatment. We have learned over time that dogs have an unusual ability to heal without drug or herbal intervention. In fact, it is estimated that 70 to 80% of all diseases are able to be healed without drug or herbal intervention.
There is no question about the miraculous healing qualities that nature has provided. There is a lot left to learn about the healing qualities of our pets so that it can be applied to the human healing process. Many times we treat an animal for a condition that should have merely been left alone. It is called symptomatic treatment when we tend to diagnose and treat conditions based on the symptoms rather than addressing the core issue. Unless an animal is suffering or its life is in danger, the symptoms should be left alone so that the natural repair process can proceed.
It is reported that at least 90% of all diseases seen in humans and their pets are avoidable. It just makes more sense to try and avoid the disease than to treat it after the fact.
We can decide to avoid the disease by ingesting and feeding our pets a quality natural raw food diet. Eliminate processed foods from their diets as much as possible, and use god’s gifts from nature (natural supplements). This seems like an easy resolve to eliminate the health problems that plague our nation for ourselves and our pets.
