Over medicating – 5 herbs that can save and change your pet.
Detoxify. Enrich. And Thrive...
As a master herbalist, our curator and founder Marc Ching works daily with both sick and healthy animals constructing feeding and herbal regimes meant to boost immune functioning, and provide preventative care. The reason why we are proponents for herbs, because with correct formulas, much of the medications animals are on can be eliminated. For example, instead of using Flagyl for diarrhea, Mr.Ching mixes Bromelain, Slippery Elm, Papain, Fennel Seed, Apple Pectin, Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root, and Psyllium Husk. With Flagyl, this antibiotic kills beneficial bacteria in the GI tract called Flora, which can result in other problems in regards to your pet's overall health. Our Essential List... 1) Wheatgrass. Packed with over 200 natural immune protecting compounds, this super herb is safe for daily use in both dogs and cats. Wheatgrass helps to increase red blood cell production, restores natural alkalinity to the blood, and is a powerful detoxifier containing beneficial enzymes and amino acids. 2) Milk Thistle Works to protect both the liver and kidneys. Milk Thistle powder should be used for cats and dogs experiencing kidney or liver trouble.
3) Dandelion Root Rich in minerals and nutrients, Dandelion Root makes our essential list for its ability to protect the liver and aid in digestion. It also helps to reduce inflammation in the gall bladder and boost immune functioning. 4) Sage Rich in antioxidants, sage is a must for both dogs and cats in regards to wellness and preventative care. It possess anti inflammatory properties and important compounds like diosmetin and luteolin, two cell strengthening properties that assist animal growth and development. 5) Burdock Root A great source of polysaccharides for dogs and cats containing inulin and mucilage. Burdock contains selenium, iron, and has natural antioxidants that help the body stave off infections and neurological conditions.
