Food as medicine

More than 24 centuries ago, it was Hippocrates who first identified that 'We are what we eat'. Little did he know that this philosophy would never ring more true than in today's society, where diets and lifestyles have become inextricably interwoven with the state of health. And as medical experts start, like Hippocrates, to take a more holistic view of illness and its causes, more and more attention is being turned toward the adverse effect of modern food processing. What is the problem? The food our pets eat has changed a great deal since Hippocrates' time. There are more exotic foods in diets, new additives and new and advanced methods of containing, preserving, and processing foods. But how does the food we feed affect physiology? Why are some diseases on the increase and affecting pets? We all know our pet's health is a precious asset, yet how much do we know about what we are feeding and how it affects dogs as individuals? A large number of dogs have a hidden sensitivity or intolerance, or even an allergy to different foods. This can cause many potential problems. The most common symptoms (which may often take a long time to build up) include: Skin & Coat disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Behaviorial Problems, Hives (Hot Spots), Rhinitis (Runny Noses), General lethargy, Fluid retention, Cancer, Asthma, Arthritis, Aches and pains, and Hyperactivity.
