Healing Crisis ?
Have you ever heard the term ‘Healing Crisis’?Chances
are you haven’t unless you or your animal has been through it, and if
you have chosen a good raw feed supplier, who really knows about canine
nutrition and dietary needs, and is able to give you proper, informed
support in changing your dog over to a raw diet, you will never see it,
and your dogs health will simply go from strength to strength.
our everyday lives we ingest and take into our bodies many toxins and
not all of them are effectively dealt with by the liver. These
toxins stay in our bodies and are stored and added to as time goes on.
It used to be thought a
healing crisis was when the body ‘deals with the problem’ – like when
your skin detox’s out excess oils and waste in the form of a big spot or
boil but on a larger scale – a scale where there are more,
uncomfortable symptoms which may take some time to work through –
generally the worse the symptoms, the more toxins there are to be
detoxed out of the body in order to achieve a state of good health, but
it is now known that if the body is getting the correct nutrition
needed, it simply works more effectively, and it is when incorrect
dietary guidelines are followed, resulting in much needed nutrients not
being supplied, that this ‘healing crisis’ is most likely to happen.
There may be any of the following
experienced: diarrhea, thinning of coat, sores and scabs, gunky ears,
gunky eyes, ‘wet eczema’, hot spots, and in more severe cases even
weight loss.Diarrhea is less common, especially if the dog is
fasted before being changed over, and aided with probiotics and/or
enzymes, thankfully, but can still happen initially.
you change your dog over to a raw diet, to avoid the rick of these
things happening to your dog, follow our NHD diet guide, where your dog
will have all the necessary nutrition it’s body needs, right from the
word go, and whichever raw food supplier you choose to use, make sure
they are experienced and well-established, knowing and offering ongoing
support to their customers, not just treating their business as just a
