Is a Healthy Dog What You Want?

Yes, I want a healthy dog. Silly question. Who doesn't want a healthy dog?

Likely your dog was born healthy. He started his life as a healthy puppy, right? So if your dog has health problems today, what happened between then, and now?

Look at this little pup. Isn't he the picture of good health?

So, Here's What Happened

Something about your dog is out of whack, but what?

Mother Nature is always working to restore and maintain a state of balance. Health means a state of balance in all things. This is called homeostasis. Here is the definition of homeostasis as it applies to health.

  • Health is a condition where all the tissues and organ systems of the body are functioning in a normal manner.
  • Disease is a lack of normal functioning in any body tissue, organ or organ system of the body.

Homeostasis is the true nature of life

So, whether we're talking about your dog's state of health, the state of the world and the environment in which we all live, homeostasis is the aim. Balance is the goal. Strive for it every day if you want to have a healthy dog and be healthy yourself. Don't expect your vet to fix everything that goes wrong. Responsibility starts with you!

As humans, we tend to mess things up, have you noticed? Our intentions are usually good, though. We are very fortunate that Mother Nature is forgiving. She will always strive to restore balance for the health of our world and your dog's health, but you have to help. You can learn how to do this.

So, if your dog's health is not as good as it should be, obviously something is out of whack! Something has upset the natural balance, the orderly functioning inside your dog's body.

Why It's Important to
Look at Your Dog As a ' Whole '.

Your dog is the whole of his body, mind and spirit. The same as you! Whole means, entire, complete, perfect, unbroken and healthy. Knowing this, if your dog's health is not as good as it should be, then it's time to find out what's not working correctly. Then restore balance!

On average dogs live 1/6th as long as humans, about 12 years only. Far short of the 72 years the average human will live. So, there is no time to lose. Your dog's entire life and his ability to experience good health or bad health, is in your hands. You hold the keys. Your dog has no choice. He must trust you to make the best choices for him.

Everything necessary to maintain health already exists in your dog's body. Inside every cell, there is a inherent, restorative all knowing intelligence that keeps the body well. Your dog's body is...

  • Self regulating - For example, blood pressure, blood sugar and heart rate are all self regulating. If all is well, the body does this automatically. You don't have to do anything.
  • Self healing - For example, if your dog cuts his paw, the vet might have to stitch it up and clean it, but the wound will heal all by itself. It's not the stitching and cleaning that heals it. The body does this automatically. You don't have to do anything more than keep it clean.

So, when the body gets sick or injured, this natural healing force gets busy restoring healing balance.

Here' s Why Holistic Dog Health Care Works

Natural dog health care works because the goal is to restore and maintain the original good canine health your dog was born with. If having good health were as simple as taking a drug or a pill, no dog would be ill. Every dog would be a healthy dog wouldn't they? To live in a balanced state of health, a dog needs these things every day. So do we, by the way!

  • Nutrients
  • Clean water
  • Exercise
  • Fresh air and sunlight
  • Love and a purpose for living

This might seem like a ' no brainer ', but if your dog is lacking in any or all of these things, dog health issues will arise sooner or later. It follows then, that some part of your dog's organs and body systems will be affected eventually. All dog health problems are a result of only these three things.

  1. Deficiency
  2. Toxicity
  3. Injury

Conventional Veterinary Disease Care
Natural Health Care for Dogs

This Is NOT a Competition!

First, let's be clear.

I am NOT advocating natural dog health care over conventional veterinary care for your dog. I believe that each type has it's place and works best if used to compliment the other.

Let's be serious here. If your dog gets hit by a car, you want the doctor. If your dog gets injured and tears his ACL ligament, you want the doctor. If your dog has a heat stroke and collapses, you want the doctor. All of these things are acutely serious and need the doctor's attention quickly.

However, the biggest problem with conventional veterinary dog health care is that it doesn't work very well for chronic dog health problems. Common dog health problems usually start with something small. The deeper root cause does not get resolved. The small problem often continues, then turns into a larger, ongoing chronic problem. Do you see my point?

It's only a matter of time before the original problem reoccurs or another one starts, because the root of the problem remains. You won't ever have a healthy dog again if this is allowed to continue.

Think back? Allergies, diarrhea, ear problems? Ringing any bells here? Did the problem get better or worse?

Why You Need to Find the Root Cause?

Because it's the original source of whatever your dog's health problem is!

If you're observant, you should be able to understand that what you see and notice on the outside are clues. All dog health symptoms are clues. The outward symptoms that you can see, tell you there is a loss of health on the inside of your dog's body...but you can't see it.

As dogs age, cellular dysfunction happens slowly. Often you don't even notice the signs until a problem has begun. That's where daily natural health care for your dog comes in.

 Getting Your Dog Healthy Again
Starts Today

You can start today. All change will require some effort on your part. There are no easy answers for restoring health, but it all starts with your decision to do it.

Some dog health problems are easier to overcome than others, of course! But that's no excuse for waiting or doing nothing. To have a truly naturally healthy dog, here's what you need to do starting now.

  1. Raise your standards
  2. Reduce toxicity
  3. Reduce your dog's stress
