Natural vs Non-Natural Remedies Pet Care Tips 2 min read
To go natural or not – this may be a natural choice for some pet owners, but it’s a dilemma for others. There are a plethora of natural remedies on the market but the question many pet lovers ask is – Do they work?
Well yes, they do work, but natural remedies take a different approach to dealing with disease and sickness than the more conventional medicines on the market. And here’s how. Non-natural medicines treat the symptoms with an attitude of seek and destroy. They go to war with the virus, bacteria or infection killing it quickly. Unfortunately, wars tend to kill the innocent too- AKA- the good bacteria and the natural immune system, and a bombardment of strong medicine often damages the kidneys, liver and stomach.
Natural remedies take a holistic approach, using a blend of synergistic herbs that help support the whole system gently and effectively. They help the symptoms, boost the immune system, strengthen the diseased or infected organs and deal with other areas that may be affected through illness such as poor digestion, incontinence or itchy skin.
For example, when helping with pet diabetes the natural pet remedy, Mellit, manages blood sugar and helps the liver, the eyes, circulation and cholesterol, all areas affected by diabetes.
Take a look at the natural vs. non-natural support for ear mites.
The Natural Remedy- ER Drops.
Mullein – Soothes and lubricates.
St. John’s Wort – Reduces inflammation and promotes faster healing.
