Simple additions to keep disease at arms length…
Our environment is constantly bombarded with chemicals, pesticides, plastics, and pollution. Increasingly we are seeing the negative impacts of all this pollution in our bodies, and in our pets. It manifests in an array of illnesses, including poor skin & coat, infected ears, rashes and itchiness, inflammation diseases, endocrine/thyroid and adrenal stress problems, diabetes, pancreatitis, cancer, heart disease, dementia/loss of senses, irritable bowel disease (leaky gut), kidney, and liver disease. The quality of food we offer our pets, and the supplemental support we give, is the key to health and longevity. We believe in offering fresh, raw foods along with supporting the gut biome and vital organs, the true heart of health! This can be easily accomplished and simple to do at home… there’s no one path and there are many ways on any budget to create better wellness for your pet.
- Start at the Heart: Gut Microbiome
You can add fresh or fermented goat milk or cheese, kefir, or any of our fresh Elixers, Greens (Juju), Yogurts (lactose free), or our powdered or chewable options. Look for food sourced options, not synthetic!
- Leafy Greens & Superfoods
We carry several toppers to add a fresh food component. Try broth and goat milk (rehydrate with water), freeze dried raw or dehydrated food, or traditional frozen raw foods. Or consider adding a super food boost, or multivitamin; we have fresh, liquid, powder, and soft chews.
- Stop Inflammation: Omega-rich Oils, Herbs, and Antioxidants
The best is fish oil, but it can also be beneficial to add flax, coconut, hemp, or others. Omega oils are essential for all organ functions, brain, and eyesight health; they are a natural whole-body anti-inflammatory and assist the endocrine system. By selecting the right herbs and antioxidants you can totally turn inflammation and the inflammatory response around. Adding things like hemp oil, mushrooms, ginger, astaxanthin, and turmeric, or many others, provide support to the body by reducing inflammation and increasing oxidation. Ask us for the right supplements to reach your goals.
- Organ Support at Home: Just Add Veggies
You can add benefits at home just by adding some raw veggies. If you need to you can also lightly steam the veggies (but not much!). Fresh veggies will add natural enzymes, an antioxidant boost, vitamins and nutrients, and are excellent for adding fiber to boost gut health. Hint: blender grind or finely grate your veggies before serving to help break down the cellulose.
