There is a season (turn, turn, turn),
And a time to every purpose, under heaven...
The ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic physicians were masters at understanding the value of seasonal foods as medicine to help us and our dogs and cats balance weather challenges naturally.
- Increased thirst
- Dryness in the body: lips, nose, skin, throat
- Melancholy feelings
Most pets love these fresh foods – if you are very good, maybe they’ll share with you!
The lungs need moisture; adding moistening foods, and even astringent sour flavors, will prevent loss of body fluids and protect against the drying cold winds. As you’re feeding your dog or cat fresh food, consider trying:
- Nuts (almonds, pine nuts)
- Honey (local, if possible)
- Dairy products (organic only, if you are inclined to dairy)
- Soy products: tofu, tempeh (organic only, if you are inclined to soy)
- Barley, millet
- Shellfish (clam, crab, oyster, mussel), herring
- Sea salt (in small amounts)
Boost your pet’s natural lung health with a fresh pet diet that includes sour foods.
- Sourdough bread (organic only)
- Sauerkraut or fermented veggies
- Pickles, olives
- Leeks (humans)
- Aduki beans
- Apples (sour varieties)
- Lemons, limes
Our animals are just as much a part of the natural world as we are and seasonal fresh foods are the best pet diet for healthy dogs and cats.
- Diarrhea and Constipation – two sides of the same coin.
- Kidney disease and the real skinny on protein requirements.
