Understanding viruses in cats and so keeping them healthy, means turning your, and everyone else’s it seems, ideas upside down. That in itself can be challenging. People are resistant to change. However, change is necessary for growth, and if nothing else, I believe we are here to grow, to evolve.
The Mainstream Medical Model
It’s important to appreciate that the way mainstream medicine (or allopathy) works is, at best, disease management. Although the ways of allopathy has infiltrated everyone’s consciousness, it is becoming increasingly obvious even to those who don’t want to see, that it is limited.
One of the mysteries to me is that although trillions have been spent on medical research, both for humans and for animals, the best they can come up with for the coronaviris is washing your hands and isolation.
Yet the coronavirus has been around forever. It’s part of the cold/flu virus. Like the flu, it mutates every year.
In fact, there are really no new viruses, no new bacteria, no new pathogen. They just mutate into stronger strains. But they only do this when we fight them, when we aim to kill them. All life forms have a desire to live and will be creative in achieving this.
Because allopathy doesn’t understand restoration of health, just disease management, they only know how to kill off offending pathogens. They feel the pathogen is the cause of the disease.
However, pathogens are never the cause of any disease. They are only ever the effect, or the physical outcome.
So what is the cause of any disease, any bacteria, any one of the various viruses in cats, or in anyone?
The Immune System
The fact is that every breath we take, every minute of the day, we are breathing in millions of viruses, bacteria, pathogens. We have recognised and named only a very few.
Q. So why don’t we, or our cats, get sick from them?
A. Our immune system keeps us from getting sick.
Q. So why are there so many sick or ill cats about?
A. Because their immune system is no longer working as it should.
Q. What stops an immune system working as it should?
A. The environment. And this consists of the wrong diet for the species, toxins (environmental, but all veterinary medications are toxic), a stressful life, the wrong living conditions for the species.
A new science has developed around this major topic. It’s called epigenetics. It considers that the environmental factors account for 80+% of all ill health, and genetics account for about 20%. And that even when you do have a genetic predisposition, it can be put into dormancy with the right environmental factors.
Although most thinking people can see the logic in this, many people can’t. They reason that vets know everything about cats, so follow their advice blindly.
However, as cats are now considered geriatric at 10 years of age, and many develop serious, chronic, even auto-immune diseases well before that, again, it is obvious to thinking people, that things are not going too well.
This is also reflected in our own health and that of our other domestic animal companions.
A healthy cat can easily live to 20 or more years of age and die with no obvious sign of any serious or chronic disease. It was simply time to move on. They had done their thing.
How Can You Restore The Immune System?
As the epigentic model suggests, the way to have a healthy immune system, which results in resistance to viruses in cats, as well as everything else, and everyone else, is to improve the environmental factors.
Diet is king. Feed cat junk food (aka commercial cat food) and you have a problem in the making. Commerce want profit. They don’t care about the health of your cat. Commercial cat food is rife with problems and recalls happen all the time. The Truth About Pet Food keeps tabs on the US pet food industry, which is often reflected globally.
By feeding your cat according to their evolutionary history can make all the difference to their health, with major, chronic, even autoimmune diseases disappearing.
However, this may not happen in all cases. Sometimes, extra help is needed. The holistic health care modality of homeopathy offers you an extraordinarily beneficial way to restore health through stimulating the immune system back to efficiency.
Getting out into the sun and onto the earth is very healing. Even when living in an apartment, a cat will often appreciate getting out onto the balcony, in the sun (wearing a safety harness).
You don’t have to be worried about viruses in cats, or any other ailment, when you get the diet right and you use homeopathy for any health concern. Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine supporting mental, emotional, general and physical health.
I believe this duo is impossible to beat.
