The pet food recalls continue. The best "wholistic" suggestion to prevent
danger to your pet is -- STOP feeding dry kibble dog food. In our
"wholistic" opinion, dry kibble dog food is the least nutritious form of
food to feed a carnivore. Furthermore, a majority of all pet food recalls is
with dry food. Canned food, freeze-dried food and raw food have a much lower
percentage of recalls. For the latest recalls, go to:

What Pet Food Companies
Don't Want You to Know
Almost everyone has learned to "heal" (fix
the symptoms) their and their pet's body using the Western medical
The main allopathic medicine principle is Cause & Effect:
introduce a substance into the body to cause an effect. For example,
if a blood value is too high, one takes the blue pill to decrease
it. If the same blood value is too low, one takes the red pill to
cause it to increase. In treating just the symptoms, we have learned
to use Product D for
digestive disorders, Product E to enhance the eyes, Product I to
boost the immune system, etc. This is clearly the product doing the
work ("healing"). But does this Western medicine principle of Cause
& Effect work for truly holistic products? Here is an example
showing the fallacy in using this allopathic medicine principle to
evaluate truly "wholistic" products.
Suppose one introduces new Product A to
the body and an infection breaks out shortly thereafter. One stops
A and instead takes a drug to make the infection go away. After the
infection clears up one restarts taking Product A and the infection
comes back. Nothing else has changed: food, water, isolated
supplements, snacks (or treats if for a pet). Using the Western
allopathic medical principle of Cause & Effect, one might logically
conclude Product A is causing the infection. Fortunately, we have
never seen any of our whole food
products "cause" an infection, any more than oranges or
salmon can cause an infection (unless the product had unknown
contamination). Here are some possible scenarios to explain why the
infection came back:
The drug that was taken to eradicate
the infection did
fully work and a longer course or stronger potency is needed.
The drug was not correctly matched to
bacterial (fungal or parasitic) infection, so a
one must be prescribed.
Even though the body had no apparent
symptoms, it was nutritionally depleted and the glands and
organs, especially in the immune system, were not functioning at
100%. Many people assume if the body
no symptoms, it is perfectly healthy.
Taking Product A balanced all the
glands and organs, thus normalizing the immune system where the
body was now strong enough to fight the hidden infection, when
it was not before.
One of the most common misperceptions is
to judge a truly
"wholistic" product (not a drug or isolated supplement) by the
body's first reaction. This is clearly assuming the product is doing
the work or making the changes. But this same allopathic medicine
principle does not work when evaluating our truly "wholistic"
products. Here is another example.
Suppose you got a cold/flu and your
told you to take either a high potency
Vitamin C supplement (5-10,000 mg daily) or eat many oranges
(or do both). Since oranges are cheaper and a whole food product,
you decide to eat 20 oranges the first day and got diarrhea. What
Did your doctor give you bad advice?
Did you overdose on
Vitamin C from the oranges?
Were the oranges contaminated with
bacteria causing the diarrhea or are you allergic to oranges?
Here is our holistic perspective:
The naturopathic doctor gave very good
advice. The high dose of Vitamin C should immediately help the
body fight the infection by increasing the supply of this very
necessary nutrient for the immune system. The whole food oranges
will supply a minimal amount of Vitamin C (60-70 mg per orange)
but more importantly will supply the complementary nutrients of
zinc, selenium, Vitamin E, rutin, bioflavonoids, etc. Nature
dictated is necessary for the Vitamin C to work optimally in our
bodies. Both can be taken simultaneously because they complement
One cannot overdose on Vitamin C from
since an average orange contains only 60-70 mg of Vitamin C
each: this only supplies 1,400 mg of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
This is far less than the average bowel tolerance of 10-20,000
mg per day for a healthy person. A sick body can tolerate double
While it is possible a bacterial
infection came from eating raw oranges, it is unlikely if
one took the normal food handling precautions of washing the
oranges first and using clean utensils in preparing and eating
them. It is also highly unlikely that one suddenly developed an
allergy to oranges.
A more likely cause of the diarrhea is the
body is not accustomed to eating so much fresh fruit, with a high
water and fiber content daily. So, it is this rapid delivery that
caused the diarrhea not the product, as in allopathic thinking. If
one were to gradually build up to eating 20 oranges daily, the body
would probably not have diarrhea. The cause of the diarrhea is,
therefore, not related to the effects of the oranges (whole food
product) but to the accelerated introduction to this new whole food
to the diet.
So, what is the answer to the above
scenario of recurring infections after Product A is taken? We
suggest the following "wholistic" actions:
Take more of
whole food Product A
to nourish and balance ALL the glands and organs. A normalize
endocrine and immune system
maybe all the body needs to alleviate the recurring infection.
Evaluate the diet to make sure fresh,
food products are being eaten rather than a diet with white
flour, sugar-laden, chemically preserved, processed foods. Avoid
all gluten and dairy products until the infection clears up. For
a pet, this would mean serving a
species-appropriate diet. This includes eliminating
nutritionally deficient dry
kibble food. Did you know dry kibble is a holistically
suspected cause of
Chronic Renal Failure (CRF),
stones and UTI's in pets?
Look for other hidden sources of the
infection and ways to balance the immune system permanently, so
drugs are not needed for the symptoms. Maybe better hygiene
habits are needed in the winter.
