The Immune System Army
This week I continue to emphasize the importance of the immune system. The only permanent cure for disease is your dog's immune system. This amazing complex transmission of information and defense capabilities has four lines of defense. The immune system is like an army ready to do battle. All of these different white blood cells require proper fuel to operate effectively. Without fuel, they have no power to operate properly.

This week I continue to emphasize the importance of the immune system. The only permanent cure for disease is your dog's immune system. This amazing complex transmission of information and defense capabilities has four lines of defense. The immune system is like an army ready to do battle. All of these different white blood cells require proper fuel to operate effectively. Without fuel, they have no power to operate properly. The natural killer cells “photograph” the enemy and the next time they show their face the entire immune system knows to kill them on the spot. In order for them to function like that they need to be activated. A well balanced immune system is strong enough to overcome ANY disease. In order to activate the immune system we need to provide it with a particular food called phytochemicals. These important elements build up the immune system.
It is equally important to recognize the things that weaken the immune system. Vaccinations, antibiotics, steroids, radiation, chemotherapy treatments, poor diets lacking phytochemicals, and an imbalance intestinal flora all tend to weaken the preventative power and the healing capabilities of this important system. It is cutting edge technology to get all of God’s natural medicine from the food. It has been proved that over 385 different phyto-chemicals can be found inside one apple. The astounding complexity of medicine within these foods for healing. The old adage about, “an apple a day keeps the vet away”’ is a true statement. We use apples in our diet and we are proud of it.
How can you reverse disease? The main focus of fighting off any disease is cleansing the blood. Within the blood there is a war going on with bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites and other entities. By cleansing the blood we are getting at the root cause of the disease and therefore, prevent it from the source. A diet high in phyto-chemicals is the best way to cleanse the blood. Providing the body with high doses of phyto-chemicals for approximately 4 months will completely cleanse the blood- which is the key to reversing all disease.
Raw Food Tip:
Remember, you and your vet are a team in the overall well being of your pet, so it is always awesome when you are all on the same page! Being knowledgeable about blood work is extremely important because vets as well as human physicians rely on the information that the blood work reveals and treat accordingly.
