Feline diabetes is now a common disease in cats. Only a couple of decades ago, it was unknown. So what has gone wrong in the intervening time? If you do have a cat with diabetes, is insulin the only answer?
Like so many common feline diseases (common today that is, but uncommon only a short time ago), feline diabetes is a man-made disease. It is completely preventable. It can also be healed. Completely.
Insulin is the only way veterinarians (and doctors) know how to treat diabetes. They are into drug use and suppressing symptoms, rather than finding the cause of a problem and using natural ways. However, insulin does nothing to cure the problem and causes a degenerative process, which can ultimately kill the patient.
In recent decades, the world has changed dramatically in some ways. These ways, although heralded as ‘progressive’ by those who benefit from their promotion, are in fact a giant leap backwards. This is particularly true in health care. Human health care, animal health care.
Primarily, natural health comes from following natural laws. Since diabetes doesn’t occur in nature, let’s learn from nature. Wild cats don’t get diabetes.
Wild cats live on the same diet they have for millenia. This one best suits their health. It provides them with all their nutritional needs. It is easily digested and assimilated. It keeps their immunity strong, so warding off any diseases.
Now let’s look at a typical domestic cats diet. Commercial cat food in the form of dried food, canned food or refrigerated rolls.
All are cooked. Cooking destroys essential enzymes. Cooking alters protein, often making it indigestible.
Meat, one of the main requirements of healthy feline nutrition, should be fresh and of good quality. However, fresh meat is expensive and more profit is made by selling it for human consumption. So the pet food industry buys the ‘dregs’ from slaughter houses (or more often from rendering plants, where slaughter house waste ends up), which is not quality protein.
All commercial pet food companies are more interested in their bottom line, their profit, than they are in the health of your cat. To this end, they will use more plant based food, than animal based food. Cats do not have the complexities in their organs to digest plant based food.
To this unsavoury mix will be added various chemicals to preserve, to colour, to flavour, to address the shortfall of natural nutrients (although chemicals can never do this), etc.
This diet may keep cats alive, but certainly doesn’t keep them healthy.
The other main contribution to the deteriorating health of cats is the enormous increase in the amount of medication they now receive. Kittens, from a very early age, are given multiple vaccines, which damage a developing immune system.
The onslaught continues as the immune compromised kitten inevitably develops various diseases, first mild, then going into serious. Antibiotics are liberally used, which weaken an already weak immune system. Then the big guns are brought in, the cortisone and steroids, which are suppressive and very damaging to the long term health of the patient.
Eventually a serious condition arises, such as feline diabetes, feline cancer or one of the other feline auto immune diseases. These are all a direct result of poor nutrition, leading to deficiencies, and toxicity from the chemical drugs. Suppression of the natural abilities of a balanced immune system makes recovery impossible.
Cats are particularly sensitive to chemicals too, adding in another complication. Mainstream vets have no idea of real health care. They have no idea that they are creating the problems. Or perhaps they do, but make such handsome profits, they turn a blind eye.
Real (rather than the increasingly common pseudo) holistic animal vets and therapists will always start treatment with a return to a healthy diet. Once this is in place, they will start on a healthy treatment to return the health of the cat to what is normal.
Natural cat health comes from following natural laws, from feeding them a quality, natural diet they evolved on, by using an holistic health care system, such as homeopathy, when help is needed. Homeopathy promotes a healthy immune system, does not use chemicals and does not suppress the symptoms.
