Natural Immunity – Supporting Health from the Inside OutThe immune system is an intricate biological protection system responsible for determining whatbelongs to the body versus what does not belong and requires elimination. If these elements are notattended to first, then adding supplements to boost the immune system or balance it will be far lessuseful or effective.Providing the foundations of health necessitates that we become mindful of things we may not normallybe aware of such as:Pesticide & Herbicide Residue In FoodsPesticides are chemicals designed to kill living organisms – not something we want our companionsconsuming on a daily basis. While a totally organic diet can be a bit expensive for those with largeranimals or many mouths to feed, adding some organic foods – even just 25-30% can be helpful.Fresh Food Versus Highly Processed FoodHighly processed food, such as dry kibble, loses most of its vitamins, some amino acids, and all enzymesand probiotics during the manufacturing process. On the other hand, fresh food antioxidants andvitamins in their natural, more absorbable form and can be beneficial to the immune system.Chemical Insecticides & Flea TreatmentsChemical insecticides in the home and yard should be avoided for your companion’s sake.
