Natural and Unprocessed Diet: The First Step to Recovery and Wellness in Pets

The first step in helping your pet eliminate toxins from the body is to examine your pet’s diet. Most people are so used to feeding their pets commercially produced food that the thought of doing anything else seems strange. Commercially produced foods typically contain many chemical additives that besides lacking a nutritional benefit, accumulate in your pet’s tissues and organs, seriously affecting thyroid, liver and digestive functioning over time. Your pet’s optimal health requires a diet that is both natural for your type of pet and unprocessed. Raw foods contain many essential nutrients and minerals that may be destroyed by cooking and processing.

The best food might not be the right one for your particular pet!

Best foods for pets are FRESH home-cooked foods that nourish and strengthen the life force. Refer to Canine Nutrition: Choosing the Best Food for Your Breed by William D. Cusick. Keep in mind that dogs and cats are carnivores with a short digestive tract that has high acidity for easy digestion of raw meat.

Good pet nutrition for dogs and cats includes:

  • Raw meat (muscles and organs)
  • Shredded or steamed vegetables with a mushy consistency
  • High quality animal oils
  • Vitamins and minerals (all preferably organic and whole-food based)
  • Meaty RAW Bones for dogs
  • Raw eggs
  • Nordic Naturals Cod Liver Oil
  • Dr. Harvey’s (or other pre-mixes), plus above
  • Bravo raw foods
  • Wysong; Flint River Ranch; Innova

Damaging alcohols in processed water and food

  • According to Dr. Hulda Clark, ND “all diseases are caused by toxins and parasites (worms, protozoa, bacteria, viruses etc.).”
  • Solvents like isopropyl alcohol (propanol) and methanol are responsible for letting parasites (flukes) establish themselves in the liver/pancreas.
  • In order to get cancer/diabetes, you must have both the solvent (alcohol) and the parasite in your body. This parasite typically lives in its “original” organs like the intestines where it might do little harm, causing only minor symptoms or perhaps nothing at all. But if it invades a different organ, like the uterus or the kidneys or liver, it does a great deal of harm, causing cancer or diabetes.
  • Beware of any bottled or kibbled, canned or otherwise packaged/man-made nutrition products with propyl alcohol. These include shampoos, personal care products including hair care and shaving supplies, cold cereals, decaffeinated coffee, some nutritional supplements, bottled water, rubbing alcohol, white sugar and store bought fruit juice.
  • Nutrasweet (Aspartame) gets metabolized into Methanol and the Formaldehyde. Think twice before using ANY artificial sweetener!!!

Foods and Food Additives to Avoid

  • Table food scraps
  • Processed including kibble
  • Hill’s, IVD, Purina
  • Rawhide dog bones, Pig Ears, “Greenies,” etc.
  • Grains and starch (white potatoes)
  • Soy (unless fermented)
  • Corn (expecially GMO)
  • Pork
  • Dairy products
  • Yeast
  • Onions
  • Chocolate
  • Peas, carrots, fruits (high sugar content)
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Hydrogenated oils
  • Bromated vegetable oil (Mountain Dew, orange Gatorade)
  • Artificial sweeteners like aspartame
  • MSG

Pottenger’s Cat Study

  • More than 900 cats studied over 10 years
  • Only raw milk and raw meat produces optimal health
  • Bone structures, width of palate (space for teeth), shiny fur, no parasites and diseases
  • Heat processed food: kittens of 3rd generation cats failed to survive 6 months

BICOM®2000 for Food Testing

  • Finds incompatible food sources, e.g. wheat or turkey
  • Bicom Analyzes what is in the pet food
  • Determines whether this particular food is good for your pet

When to Feed Your Dog and Cat

  • Do NOT allow self-feeding (leaving food out all day long).
  • Refer to Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats (page 83)
  • Ideally especially CATS should be fed once a day. Twice a day is okay as long as the food is available for no longer than 20 minutes per feeding, morning and evening.
  • Constant feeding leads to poor health, poor hair coat, plus the tendency to form “gravel” in bladder resulting in bladder inflammation.
  • Certain intervals between meals are needed to digest the food properly.

Supplementing Diet with Enzymes

Enzymes are essential for good digestion and the body’s ability to benefit from nutrients in the food. Important facts to know about enzymes include:

  • Lack of food enzymes in heat processed diets
  • Body must use own resources, e.g. pancreas
  • Pancreatic size in rodents fed with processed food was as much as 300% larger than normal
  • Enzymes only work in cold temperatures
  • Amylase, Protease, Lipase and Cellulase are enzymes required for proper digestion
  • Zypan given to your pet prior to meals will assist proper digestion of nutrients in the food and prevent stress on his pancreas

Other Nutritional Supplements for Animals

  • Multivitamins (whole food supplements)
  • Minerals (particularly whole specrum sea salt)
  • Probiotics

Drinking Water

Water, Consciousness & Intent: Dr. Masaru Emoto

Each type of water has its own unique pattern or net structure of clustered water crystals. The cluster structure stores a specific frequency pattern. The cluster structure can remain, even when the Ion (e.g. toxin) is no longer present.

  • All water is not the same; quality water is essential for good health
  • Offer plenty of fresh clean drinking water between feedings
  • Quantity: 1 oz per 2 pounds of body weight
  • Reverse osmosis water best
  • Avoid tap water because of chlorine
  • Avoid well water because of environmental loads
  • Most water filters are not sufficient
  • Distilled bottled water will remove all minerals
  • Spring bottled water may contain disinfecting alcohols such as methanol or propanol
  • Water should be tested with Bicom for quality analysis
  • Avoid giving water with food
