I have a theory of why there’s been such an increase in illness and diseases in our pets. It can be explained with one word: CHOICE. The difference between humans and animals is that humans have a choice to eat the way they do, regardless of whether that is a good choice … or a bad one.
Our pets do not have this advantage – they are stuck eating what we choose to feed them and so it falls upon us to ensure their optimal nutrition. That is why it is so important to feed your pet to eat a species appropriate diet. Elect to feed a natural blend of high quality nutrients that still contain adequate levels of phytonutrients and living enzymes. This is the major difference between having them eat a diet that will ultimately create an illness or disease compared to a diet that will extend the life of the animal and give them the fuel that Mother Nature designed for them to eat.
The basis of human nourishment is obvious: It is a raw plant food diet.
I have to declare that I am a carnivore and I do love meat. I am a victim of the cooking revolution and it is a hard lesson for me to speak about it and then not be able to follow the right routine. But this is what I am talking about. It is a choice we make as humans that differs from all other species.
