Sadly, cats with diabetes are increasing in numbers. Yet a few decades ago, this was unheard of. What has happened to make this problem so wide spread? How can this trend be reversed? The answers lie in a system of natural cat health.
In the past few decades, a lot has changed for our cats. Cats were often kept because they would keep the mice and rat population down. They had a lot of freedom to come and go as they pleased. Sometimes, this healthy and natural diet was topped by table scraps. This was in the days when diet was a lot more healthy than it is today.
So the table scraps would have consisted of left over meat and vegetables. Although this is not ideal, it is a lot healthier than most commercial cat foods. Table scraps today are not as suitable, as they often consist of spicy food, fast food and processed food. They are as unsuitable for your cat’s health as they are for yours.
This relatively healthy diet of cats in bygone days was hounded out of existence by clever marketing of the new up and coming commercial cat food manufacturers. In effect, it shamed people into believing that they were not caring for their cat.
Marketing is just that. Empty words that are barely legal, let alone factual. There is little substance in most corporate marketing. The driving force behind corporations is as big a profit as possible. Usually, by whatever means is at their disposal. The health of your cat is of little importance to them. That is true for all corporations, in all industries, whatever the price tag, whoever sells and markets them.
Let’s look at an analogy to get this meaning across. Everyone knows that if you put the wrong fuel in your car, it will not run efficiently, if at all. If it does run, it may not be for long. Ultimately the engine will become clogged and stop.
There was nothing wrong with the engine. It was simply ‘fed’ the wrong ‘food’.
The same applies to your cat. Feed you cat the wrong ‘fuel’ and she won’t run as efficiently, her health will suffer. Luckily, your cat is able to recover, unlike an engine, with the right food.
This applies to all illnesses. Cats with diabetes tend to have a hard time with veterinary medications as they find the daily insulin shots distasteful, to say the least. It is may also be a burden on your wallet you can ill afford.
Diabetes is considered irreversible by veterinarians. Natural therapists tell a different story.
Dealing with the cause of a problem is so much better than simply masking over the effects.
