That we have been talking about toxins you need to take a step back and think about what we do to our pets. Month after month families purposely put toxins in and on their best friends. I guess you could say in perpetuity. Flea treatment. The advice is often 12 months of the year. There are only 12 months in a year. So the recommendation being made is forever. 12,24,36,48 months and on and on. Forever. The companies that produce the products are the one and the same that do the safety trials. The products themselves state – relatively non toxic. “Relatively”. And they are talking in terms of the average recognition of what toxic means to the general public reading the packaging. But relatively non toxic. So yes they can point to the fact that most cats and dogs are not keeling over and dying on the spot. And no one can definitively point the finger as the specific cause of all the chronic degenerative diseases including cancer that our pets face. But when we are putting one of those topical flea products on our pet and while reading the warning that it shouldn’t touch our skin you just have to consider things.
We need detox for a whole slew of reasons not forgetting simply how many years we’ve already been around given all the time for toxins to accumulate. For our pets it’s not the years, but the amount of things we do to them. When was the last time you got a vaccine, or a flea bath, or a cortisone shot and antibiotics, maybe along with a cough suppressant, possibly a behavioral med for some, a daily Rimadyl for others, forget about anyone getting chemotherapy person or pet.
For some it will be a chronic malaise – person or pet. For others it will be like a volcano building when people wonder how something so devastating like a runaway cancer seems to hit overnight. Petting their dog the night before, A O K, and the next morning every lymph node is the size of a plum. And low and behold just like that it’s diagnosed as high grade lymphoma. What? Yup, just like that.
There is obviously a genetic component to disease and an individual’s likely hood of developing a particular disease. There is also a genetic component how particular toxins affect certain individuals. And therefore the differences in likely hood whether a significant problem will develop and will it be chronic in nature or acute and devastating.
Toxins will damage health one way or another. To achieve quality of life fewer toxins is one goal – fewer vaccines, fewer flea treatments, etc, and getting rid of the toxins that have accumulated is the other goal.
