Keep Your Genes On (or Off) For Better Health

Would you like to optimize your pet’s health? There ARE things we can do, and things to avoid to help us achieve the goals of life, liberty and the pursuit of treats!

Having good genes helps a lot. We can turn genes of and on by influencing the epigenomes.Studies have shown that BPA (found in plastic drinking bottles) can influence adults, and can adversely influence babies during gestation leading to obesity. Flame retardants in rugs, furniture and clothes could be responsible for feline hyperthyroidism. Insecticides in the yard could be responsible for bladder cancer. Artificial colors and/or preservatives can lead to auto-immune disease, allergies or immune dysfunction (which can allow aberrant cells to grow - resulting in cancer and malignancies). Antibiotic use can lead to ‘leaky gut syndrome’ which can initiate food sensitivities and allergies.

So what can one do? Avoid known carcinogens as much as possible; give only enough vaccinations to protect our pets from contagious diseases and minimize toxin and chemical exposure. The key is living a healthy lifestyle. For physical health-- quality food and clean water are essential. Proper nutrition is important when we are growing, but even as adults we make new cells. Exercise is essential to keep strong and flexible and keep our ‘chi’ energy moving and our brain and other tissues oxygenated. For emotional health – minimize stress, but don’t eliminate it. If we have no challenges at all in life – how are we to grow? Don’t dwell on negative thoughts or experiences. Surround yourself with positive people and pets. For Spiritual health -- be true to yourself and your beliefs. Be in this world more than just for your own benefit – give to those less fortunate than you. Help protect and nurture our Mother Earth. Help the world be a better place – even if it just a tiny improvement – it is beneficial.

LAUGH, BE JOYOUS & LOVE as UNCONDITIONALLY as your pet LOVES YOU.
