Preventing or eliminating fleas and worms in cats naturally becomes a no-brainer when you understand how health works and the role of parasites and pathogens.
We’re a complicated species. On the one hand we appear to love making simple things really complex. On the other hand, we are easily swayed into believing that Nature has things so wrong, and we are the only ones who can solve the problem.
So first, I’d like you to appreciate that most things in life are easy and simple as long as you understand what’s going on. The complexities arise with a lack of knowledge.
Secondly, I’d like to assure you that Nature hasn’t got anything wrong. But our understanding of Nature may be a tad skewed, at times, to put it mildly.
Fleas – Preventing or Eliminating Them Naturally
Fleas are toxic scavengers. They do a wonderful job. Who else wants to run around gathering up toxins and re-cycling them into something safe?
Don’t knock them.
The question is, why is your cat toxic?
Commercial cat food is not just full of species inappropriate food such as plant based protein. It also contains a plethora of synthetic colours, flavours, ‘health supplements’, preservatives (despite any assurances to the contrary) and more.
No synthetic anything can be utilised by the body. No living being evolved to absorb synthetic anything. Therefore, it all goes into the ‘toxic’ soup category. The body struggles with that. What it can do, at least to some extent, is to eliminate some of the toxins through the skin. The skin is a major organ of the body, but of simple use.
It isn’t as complicated as other organs of the body so can tolerate this elimination without coming to any lasting harm.
That’s what attracts the fleas. Don’t blame the fleas. Blame the food you’re feeding your cat. And the toxic veterinary drugs you administer.
It’s what humans are good at – blaming the messenger, without understanding the message.
By changing your cats diet to one similar to their evolutionary diet, the toxins are likely to ramp up a notch or two in the conversion stage, then settle back to little to none.
Nothing to attract the fleas anymore.
What About Intestinal Worms in Cats?
Cats who consume a diet similar to the one they evolved on (ie balanced, good quality, very fresh, raw) digest it quickly. Raw meat digests very fast in a carnivores digestive tract.
Whilst every living being needs digestive pathogens and worms to ensure a well oiled digestive microbiome, it needs to be in balance. Too few create a digestive problem. Too many create different problems.
With the quick digestion of raw meat in a carnivore, the balance is kept to perfection. When cooked meat or plant based food is eaten by a carnivore, the digestion slows right down, causing a plethora of problems.
One of these problems is an opportunity for the worms to breed out of control.
Don’t blame the worms. They are just opportunists. Blame the food you’re feeding your cat.
Don’t blame the messenger. Read the message.
Changing your cat’s diet to one similar to the one they evolved on brings the microbiome population back into perfect balance. With no need for any toxic chemical wormer that lines the pockets of the supplier and retailer and lines your cats system with more toxins to dispose of.
Do we ever learn?
