What Is Food Therapy

Hippocrates once said: “Let pet food be thy medicine and medicine be thy pet food.”

In today’s world of fast food, processed food, and modern pharmaceuticals, the idea of “pet food as medicine” has been lost and forgotten.

You see long ago in ancient cultures this concept of “food as medicine and medicine as food” was important not only for survival but also health.

In fact, ancient cultures discovered that foods, after eaten, had very predictable physiologic and metabolic effects on the body.

This is the time when food therapy and the theory of food energetics originated.

Never Heard of Food Therapy?

You are not alone as most Westerners look perplexed when hearing the term.

The funny thing is that you may have already utilized the concepts without even knowing it!

For example, a common home remedy for a sore throat is lemon and honey.

We all know that lemon and honey soothe the throat.

Even more, lemon and honey lozenges are even available at most local drug stores.

But do you know why the lemon and honey work so well to soothe a sore throat?

In Western cultures, lemon is an acid that kills bacteria, while honey possesses well-known antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Equally likewise and according to the eastern principles of Food Therapy, honey and lemon elixir is a cooling mixture to counteract heat generated in the throat by infection.

Isn’t it interesting how old-time cures fall right in line with Eastern Food Therapy?

Looking for an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats?

Why Use an Herbal Formulation for Diabetes in Cats? I remember my first experience giving a cat insulin shots. It was years ago, and I was pet sitting for a friend. Giving kitty an insulin shot would be easy, she said. Just give him a little tuna and give him a shot. That’s it! NOPE.
