Can I Work to Avoid Cancer in My Dogs and Cats?

Khalsa portraitBy Dr. Deva Khalsa.

Doctors and researchers for years have been telling us about the importance of eating our fruits and vegetables. Researchers continue to link the importance of eating phytonutrients to the prevention of many diseases.

An example of this comes from a centenarian tribe found in the remote villages in the Andes Mountains. Researchers that study these people have found that they live long lives and are free from illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and arthritis. The diet of these tribes is mostly made up of fruits and vegetables.

Lately, we have been hearing more and more of phytonutrients and their role in our health. Phytonutrients are organic components found in plants, which  effectively   contribute to health. They are not considered essential for survival, but they are significant in maintaining a healthier life, of better quality.

Increasing phytonutrients in our bodies helps fight off this oxidation and disease that we all face, making our bodies healthier and more resilient to illness. It’s become a known scientific fact that eating these super foods results in better health and disease prevention.

To ensure you receive a wide range of different phytonutrients, it is important to eat at least one of each color groups:

  • Orange: Pumpkin, carrots
  • Green: Kale, parsley, broccoli, alfalfa, dandelion
  • Red: Cranberries, apples
  • Red-Purple: Beets
  • Blue: Blueberries

Phytonutrients work in different ways and have different functions, which help maintain a healthy body. Some examples are:

  • Lowers risks for many types of cancers
  • Slows development of heart and arterial diseases
  • Increases longevity by slowing the aging processes
  • Improves immune system and thus lowers incidence of infectious diseases
  • Lowers damage to eyes, including slowing the development of cataracts
  • As antioxidants- most phytonutrients help protect the body cells from oxidative damage, thus decreasing risk of some cancer types

Deserving Pets Vital Vitamins contain the raw form of the healthy super-foods mentioned above. The best thing about Deserving Pets Vital Vitamins is that your dog and your cat (yes, your cat) will not only readily take the vitamins but, in fact, enjoy them! While it’s very true that these vitamins will incur an additional expense it’s also true that you may save a bundle in future veterinary bills along with the worry and stress that comes with having a sick pet. Quite a number of my clients have felt that the addition of Deserving Pets Vital Vitamins to their pet’s food clearly accelerated their recovery.
