Survival Rates of Gerson Therapy

Eventually, he expanded the treatment and found that it worked for degenerative diseases and eventually cancer. The Gerson Therapy takes a natural, holistic, and whole-body approach to healing.

Ying and Yang of Food for Dogs

The ying(yin) and yang of food for dogs is basically about achieving balance.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine diet is used in the prevention as well as treatment of disease. This principle is reflected in other Eastern medicinal practices like Ayurveda.

The philosophies used are very different than the approaches used by Westerner practitioners. By and large Westerners view the symptoms as the problem. And consequent suppression of them as the cure.

The Eastern approach sees the symptoms as a result of another underlying problem. A bit like a Tsunami being a symptom but the earthquake the underlying cause. Continue reading

Luath in person
Luath in person

Auld Lang Syne has been a popular song around the world particularly in the English speaking communities. I have heard the song sung in Japanese and Russian but when I ask people who wrote the song that is another matter.  Robert Burns, Scotland national poet is credited with writing it in 1788 but it was another song that took my interest in regards to Land Of Holistic Pets.  The poem was called The Twa Dugs – translated  from Scot’s dialect to The Two Dogs.

Dogs Eating Grass

Dog-eating-grass

With regards to dogs there are still many questions that don’t have a definitive answers – one of which is why do dogs eat grass? Grass is all around us and while we understand why horses and cows graze on grass, dogs are a different matter.

Some owners see dogs as carnivores and generally averse to vegetables, why is it that they sometimes seem to feel compelled to graze on a patch of the green stuff? So it is only natural that, having seen dogs eating grass from time to time, that we ask the question why do they do it?

Winner of PATS Pet Trade Show 2014

Land Of Holistic Pet took the opportunity at the recent PATS trade show to launch our revolutionary new grain free mixer for dogs.  In doing so, we won  the prestigious award of best product in show in the category of dog food and treats.

 

PATS14---Winners-Plaque-and-Product-

As one of the judges pointed out – “there is nothing like it in the dog food market and the price is spot of for dog owners’

The recipe was developed by George Burns and was selected from more than 270 new dog and cat food  entries.  The Robbie’s Grain Free mixer has been specially developed to be hypo-allergenic, wheat and gluten free and exclusive of any additives.

The Grain free mixer uses grade one potatoes flakes as the main ingredient and combines it with vegetables and herbs. Owners must add in their own protein and oil into the mix to create a  dog meal almost like home cooking or as one owner commented – dinners for dogs.

Using Robbie’s Grain free mixer for dogs along with a high quality protein source then the idea of a home cooked dog diner becomes a very realistic proposition.

Watch out for Land Of Holistic Pets New products being launched at PATS Sandown 2015. The Company is rapidly becoming the dehydrated dog food specialist in the UK,

Unlike most of the dog food brands in the UK , Robbie’s is blended and packaged in our plant in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire

The issue is how our bodies handle it. How strong is the dogs immune system  to brush aside parasites and dust problems. Continue reading
