SUBJECTS: RECOMMENDED HERBAL NUTRACEUTICALS,
Most disease is caused by systemic toxicity and lowered immune function. Western medicine doesn’t have the tools or philosophy to find the root cause
“Most over-the-counter and almost all prescribed drug treatments merely mask symptoms or control health problems or in some way alter the way organs or systems such as the circulatory system work. Drugs almost never deal with the reasons why these problems exist, while they frequently create new health problems as side effects of their activities.”

- 1. DETOX AND REBUILD: How Does It Get Better Than This?! Whole body detox and rejuvenating system. Detox liver, kidneys, blood, lymphatic system & stimulate cell regeneration for ultimate internal health. Every 6 months, all pets. $59.00 Retail
Toxins can weaken the immune system allowing for disease to set in. Often times our bodies (including our pets) will get overloaded with toxins and the body will store them. When the body stores the toxins it can create disease. It is very beneficial to clean out toxins in the body at least twice/year (more often when dealing with disease) to rid the body of the toxins and keep the system in balance. What is Cell Regeneration? When disease takes over parts of the body it can destroy the cells. Tumors destroy cells. Cell regeneration is restoring cells to their original health.

ABSCESSES and BOILS: Diane Stein The Natural Remedy Book for Dogs & Cats
Abscesses and Boils An abscess is a pocket of pus under the skin surface. In dogs and cats it is usually caused by a small puncture wound that closes on the outside, but has bacteria or foreign matter trapped inside. Cats get these from claw and bite wounds in fights, and dogs from burr, sticktight, or other plant pieces that work their way under the skin. Cellulitis is an inflammation of the deep skin layers, and boils are primarily bacterial infections under the skin (staph infections) often caused by systemic toxicity and lowered immune function. A carbuncle is a spreading boil—there may be several infections in an area. Signs of this infection include a painful, red, swollen area of skin that feels hot to the touch. In cellulitis the skin feels hard, and in an abscess there is fluid beneath the surface. If the infection grows, there may be evidence of swollen lymph glands or red streaks radiating from the sore. The animal may seem depressed or may become anorexic, refusing to eat. There may be fever and chills. To heal, the abscess or boil needs to be opened and drained; it must be cleaned of any foreign matter and pus. Healing occurs from the inside out, rather than from the surface. A boil or abscess that does not drain may need to be surgically lanced, but with the use of natural methods this is usually unnecessary.
An animal that is diabetic, has thyroid disease, or a reduced immune system is more susceptible to recurring staph infections. Chronic constipation may be a cause, as well as allergies, stress, or poor hygiene.
Nutrition: Commercial pet foods, low in nutrients and high in chemicals and sugar, are often a cause of abscesses and boils. The poorer quality generic foods that contain little or no zinc are particularly suspect in dogs.
A natural or preservative-free diet is necessary, as poor nutrition can be a source of both reduced immune system and systemic toxicities.
Naturopathy: Start with a detoxifying fast of a few days, especially if the dog or cat has fever. Lemon juice enemas during the fast are especially positive, and aloe vera juice internally functions as a laxative and a detoxifier. Use hot compresses or poultices three or four times a day for fifteen minutes at a time. Be careful that they are not so hot that they burn the pet. They can be made from a teaspoonful of salt or boric acid to a cup of boiled water; castor oil or tea tree oil; roasted and mashed garlic, onions, or an oven-heated lemon slice. Anitra Frazier uses a teaspoon of Betadyne solution and a half teaspoon of sea salt (not table salt) to a cup of pure water.
Once the abscess has opened, drained, and any foreign matter has been removed, the wound can be helped to heal from the inside. Anitra Frazier uses a second compress solution as above, replacing the Betadyne. Narayana Verlag; 79400 Kandern Tel: 0049 7626 9749700 Except from Diane Stein: The Natural Remedy Book for Dogs & Cats
With a teaspoonful of calendula tincture. 1 The wound should not be allowed to close up as long as there is still pus or foreign matter remaining. Kelp boosts the thyroid and adds essential minerals, and garlic is an antibiotic and immune builder. Bee products also boost the immune system. Also use honey or chlorophyll externally in compresses. Put a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in the water bowl to speed healing.
Vitamins and Minerals: The supplements of the optimal diet are highly important, particularly the mineral powders. Deficiency in minerals may make a pet susceptible to the dis-ease. Give vitamin C to bowel tolerance for infection clearing, mixing it with the animal’s honey water or herb teas during her fast and with food after. For cats and small dogs,
Richard Pitcairn suggests 250 mg three times a day for at least three days; for medium-sized dogs give 500 mg three times a day, and for large dogs use 1000 mg per dose.2 The animal may take much more. The deficiencies in zinc can cause abscesses and boils. Use zinc gluconate and C lozenges for small pets, non-chewable zinc when larger amounts are needed. *Note: ensure any sugar they use is safe for dogs/cats (no xylitol, man made sugars, stevia is even in question). Give about 5-10 mg of zinc per day for cats, 20-25 mg per day for a medium-sized dog, and 50 mg per day for a large dog.
Herbs: Dose the dog or cat with goldenseal and echinacea combination tincture or tea. Compresses can be made of this tincture or tea also, or of either herb. When using herbal antibiotics internally, do not stop until all infection has been cleared for several days, or symptoms may return. Usnea is another herb specific for staph infections. Comfrey root or leaf is an important infection-healing herb, used in poultices, compresses, and internally. Also burdock and red clover combined are good internal detoxifiers, as are chaparral, pau d’arco, or Oregon grape root. Horsetail grass taken internally reduces inflammation. Use slippery elm poultices hot until the pus has cleared, then cold to heal the wound.
Homeopathy: Try Belladonna in early stages when the skin is hot, red, and painful; used early enough it may stop an abscess from forming. After twenty-four hours, if the animal shows pain when the forming sore is lightly touched, go toHepar sulph. Once pus has formed us&Mercurius.
When there is much redness and swelling around the abscess, which looks shiny and angry, the remedy is Apis. Lachesis is used when the skin looks purplish, the pus is dark and thin, and the lesion is tender; stop this remedy as soon as there is any improvement. If there is foreign matter in the abscess, or for recurring or persistent infections, use Silica. After the pus is expelled, Calendula tincture as a compress heals the wound.
Acupuncture/Acupressure: Use the Immune Stimulation sequence of Gloria Dodd, DVM, shown in the method chapter. On the Cat Chart, point #15 is for blood cleansing and infections.
Flower Essences: Amaranthus boosts the immune system and repels bacterial inflammations, and Luffa regenerates the skin. Mallow reduces toxins in skin healing and aids the endocrine system. Crab Apple, Camphor, or Tomato essence detoxify, and Dill or Garlic flowers help to reduce inflammations. Nature s Rescue (Rescue Remedy) is useful in any acute situation. Agrimony is for slow healing wounds.
Gemstones: Elixirs of Emerald or Malachite are powerful cleansers and detoxifiers. When using Malachite, leave the stone in the water for no more than half an hour. Obsidian, Smoky Quartz, or Bloodstone are other choices. Lapis Lazuli is an anti-inflammatory, infection fighter, and all-healer. Use any of these in the dog’s or cat’s aura as well.
