Addressing Joints Health Naturally: Poorly formed hip joint
Nutrition plays a strong role in helping with the natural treatment of hip dysplasia. It is a degenerative condition brought about by generations of poor feeding practices.
Prevention and treatment:
Feeding your dog raw foods (organic whenever possible) is crucial. Be sure to include plenty of bones. I feed my dog who "once had" inflammatory joint problems the following:
50% raw vegetables (minced through a juicer) (broccoli, zucchini...etc.)
30% bony meat (chicken necks and backs)
20% raw meat
Some days I give my dog chicken necks and backs. Other days I mix raw meat (ground) with broccoli and other raw vegetables (put through a vegetable juicer or a food processor) and add whole food supplements to this mix.
Organic Micro Algae:
1 tablespoon of wild-crafted organic micro algae powder (for minerals and vitamins).
1 capsule a day of full-spectrum friendly bacteria micro blended with organic micro algae.
One of the best friendly bacteria products in the market today is a wide-spectrum friendly bacteria supplement micro blended with fructo-oligosaccharides. Following are its ingredients: Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salivarius, Streptococcus faecium, Streptococcus thermophilus, Acerola and Rose Hips blend, Organic Micro Algae, Jerusalem Artichoke, Lipase, Amylase, Protease, and Cellulase.
Plant based enzymes:
Systemic enzyme therapy is used to stimulate the immune system. Enzymes improve circulation, help speed tissue repair, bring nutrients to the damaged area, and remove waste products. Give your dog enzymes a few times a day on an empty stomach.
One of the best enzyme products in the market today is a wide-spectrum blend of 13 active enzymes with digestion-enhancing ingredients such as organic micro algae (high mineral food), fennel, ginger and cayenne pepper.
Wheat sprouts as a whole food supplement provides one of the most potent antioxidant enzymes to fight inflammation; superoxide dismutase (SOD). Since SOD requires copper and zinc as co-facters to initiate maximum effectiveness, a whole food supplement that combines other foods high in minerals would be the best type of supplement. We recommend a whole food antioxidant made of organic wheat sprouts, organic micro algae and red beta algae (dunaliella salina).
My dog's joints were strong and at the age of nine he'd outrun many dogs that were younger than him. He loved jumping so high to catch his favorite ball.
