Learning how to rid your cat of allergies is a lot more simple than putting it into practice. Allergies are when the immune system is in an unnatural state and so reacts, overreacts, to normal substances.
This means it’s a chronic disease. And chronic disease take time to understand and time to heal. Often a long time. This job is not for D-I-Yers. Anything you buy without the advice of a knowledgeable professional is likely either to have no effect, or to suppress the symptoms, driving it inwards, which inevitably leads to more chronic problems in the future.
A vet won’t be able to help you either. The medical system is totally in the dark when it comes to treating chronic disease. The best they can do is to manage it.
And cats remain an enigma to many holistic healers.
What Causes Allergies in Cats?
Wild cats don’t get allergies. You don’t see wild cats, of any size, suddenly stopping and having an uncontrollable scratch. You don’t see wild cats with mange or bald patches.
So what does that tell us?
That allergies in cats, in fact allergies in anyone, is a man-made disease, as so many are.
In my opinion, it comes down to two important areas:
- the diet – commercial cat food is cat junk food
the health care (or what passes for it) – the synthetic drugs, the antibiotics, the vaccines, the steroids are all toxic and immune suppressive
- Feed your cat a real diet, similar to the one they evolved on, and the allergies may well disappear if they have only recently appeared.
Allergies that are more established, especially when they have been treated by vets, will be much harder to heal and take much longer. They will also need the help of a professional and knowledgeable healer such as a homeopath, who understands what’s happening.
The toxic load that comes from their daily diet, their vet meds and the vaccines tip a cat’s immune system into something that over-reacts to normal, natural substances and is totally useless with the pathogens they should be dealing with.
It’s a Lot Easier To Prevent Allergies In Cats, Than To Heal Them
When a cat grows up on a healthy diet very similar to the one they evolved on, and when the rare ailment that may occur, is treated holistically, the chances of getting an allergy drops dramatically. If they get an allergy, it will be mild and easily treatable with homeopathy.
So by feeding a cat as Nature intended, and by avoiding vets, who are for the most part just salesmen for the pharmaceutical industry, you can avoid man-made ailments.
How To Rid Your Cat Of Allergies Of Long Standing – Two Important Areas
Get the diet right. While it may not heal the problem completely, it is an essential part of good health. Commercial cat food, for the most part is:
- can be full of pathogens as hygiene is not important with the makers
- made from inappropriate food for the species
- is over cooked which destroys so many nutrients
- is full of synthetic ‘nutrients’ in an effort to address the known shortfall, which don’t do that, but do add to the toxic load
This part is your job. Focus on this. Don’t go looking for quick fixes (which never work) without addressing this important issue.
Use the services of a homeopath for health issues. Homeopaths understand the source of ailments and set out to re-balance that. Find someone you can work with as you may need them for a while as the problems unravel.
This combined effort results in restoring the immune system to full working order again. Your cat remains healthy.
A fantastic outcome. But it takes time, dedication, effort and possibly a change in your beliefs and attitudes. It’s a tall order, but one with wonderful and far reaching rewards rewards.
