Treating an infection in cats is no different from treating infections in anyone. There are the medical ways of antibiotics. Then there are the alternative options, such as homeopathy.
However, before you decide on the most appropriate method, it’s worth considering the role of an infection.
The medical thought on any disease is that the body was made imperfectly and that man and his ‘science’ can improve things.
The homeopathic thought on disease is that the body was made perfectly, but that some things are stopping the body from healing itself. Most of these are man made interventions.
Don’t get me wrong, I have great respect for real science, where the scientists have open minds and no agenda. Sadly the medical model is mostly pseudo science, where vivisection is the norm and profit the end gaol.
If the body is made in perfection, why does ill health occur?
It’s all about the immune system and how healthy that is. An example is that if your cat is fed a nutrient deficient diet or a diet that contains toxins, with the best will in the world, their health will be compromised. Their energy will be taken up in expelling the constant intake of toxins, with a body that is unable to work at full efficiency.
This means that they will not be in a position to prevent a passing pathogen from taking hold. They will succumb to the infection. But an infection has an important role to play. Even a health compromised body has a strategy in place to prevent more serious damage from affecting it.
When a body is unable to prevent entry of a pathogen, the bacteria populations, that are part of every healthy organism, explode. This increased level of bacteria, medically known as an infection, has an important job to undertake in the health compromised body.
A bacterial infection is often characterised by a discharge that is thick and coloured – yellow or green. What most people don’t realise is that this is a healthy discharge of toxins. This is the body’s wonderful system of dumping the unwanted substances that are impeding natural health.
This means that treating an infection in cats with antibiotics, not only prevents your cat’s natural ability to heal, it upsets the whole body’s natural bacteria so essential to life and health.
Antibiotics are also toxic, so instead of unloading the toxin levels, you are increasing them, leading to poorer health in the future. The immune system is further compromised. You are making the overall picture of health worse. You are taking your cat’s health in the wrong direction, even though the infection clears up.
Treating an infection in cats with homeopathy is totally different. Homeopathic treatment works in accordance with the body’s best efforts. It supports the natural healing ability of your cat, even when it is compromised. It supports an ailing immune system, giving it strength to do what it is meant to do.
Treating an infection in cats with well prescribed homeopathic remedies is fast, efficient, economical and gentle. It is taking the overall level of your cat’s health forwards, not backwards.
