As a natural rearing breeder, who is also a Christ-following Christian, I look at things pretty simplistically. I step back and ask, what is God's plan in all things? What about my health and that of my Westies? After all, he created so much in just seven days! "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 How well do we heed what He says especially when it comes to our health?
It is all about truth! "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
Please stop thinking God causes cancer because he doesn't. Cancer doesn't just happen and have you even wondered why there is so much cancer, disease and illness today in people and animals? America is a sick nation and profiting to keep people and companions sick, in my opinion after much research, lies at the feet of greedy conglomerates: food industry, big pharma, chemical company's like Monsanto that continue to poison food with glychophate and GMO (genetically modified organism),someone is profiting. Whose promoting cancer and other illnesses? The food industry, big pharma and the FDA, CDC, etc. Animals are being diagnosed with all forms of cancer every day. Yet, 51 years ago when I started in Westies, cancer was rare. In fact, many "breed health issues" we see today were either non-existent or just as rare.
One thing I do not accept is fear and I tell my guardians that. We get too much doom and gloom from the biased and fake media, the medical establishments, the veterinarians, and on and on. Don't forget, people are controlled by fear. When a "professional" tells you should do this or that, you do it and usually without question because, after all, they are the smart professionals. Right? Not so fast. Don't you have an informed opinion? No. Why not? Most allopathic veterinarians are very good at promoting fear in their clients so that the client succumbs to doing what the veterinarian tells them to do to their animals. Statistics have shown that animals are just getting sicker and dying younger (humans, too) so something is causing all these early deaths, cancer, etc. don't you think?
Take a different attitude. Instead of asking what new drug, vaccine or treatment can man create to address the symptoms of a disease or illness ask instead WHY has this happened? What caused it? What can I do to help heal myself or that of my animals? You can't go wrong by relying on God instead of man for the answers especially since I totally believe by all the research I've done that man IS CAUSING THE HEALTH ISSUES PLAGUING HUMANS AND BEAST TODAY. The truly evil thing is these same greedy and corrupt profiteers stand ready to make more money by giving false hope treatments. Cancer is a prime example. Profit and power s more important to the majority in big Pharma, the food industry, government agencies, etc. than health for you. Don't take my opinion but seek the truth for yourself.
"For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isiah 41:13
I was led to naturally rearing my Westies because I just knew there had to be ways to "promote" good health and avoid disease without using harmful vaccines, cancer causing toxic chemicals, or feeding a totally unnatural diet of carbohydrates (dogs have NO requirement for carbohydrates and processed pet foods contain high amounts of sugar) and poor/questionable ingredients. Dogs require their species appropriate raw diet! All that stuff about "dog food" is man generated and the food utilizes much of the left over garbage of the human food industry. Sometimes man has done a great thing with his wisdom like inventing the automobile, but when it comes to health matters, no so much. In four generations, I proved with my own Westies that true good health and longevity is indeed possible and with no breed health issues that plague the breed in general. Many of my guardians also experience robust health and longevity with their Westies. If what God promised for me was true, and I believed I can promote my good healthy, why would those ways not work for my Westies? Well, they did!
If avoiding disease is possible with dogs, it is possible with humans but the key difference, I believe, is in truthful knowledge and implementation. "Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be open. Matthew 7:7-8. Now, I know the Lord will not mind me using scripture to teach and that scripture tells me that I have to do the seeking. I have to do the knocking. I have to ask. When I do that, the truths will be reveled to me.
I believe society today is too busy and/or lazy as a whole. Sorry, no offense to you the reader, but how many people actually make the time to educate themselves on important issues concerning health. We are also a culture of decaying morality. Greed has become the mainstay. "For the love of money is the root of all evil." 1 Timothy 6:10 Sadly, this is at the forefront of where we stand today with health in animals and people. Greed, corruption and power drives the world and this includes our own politicians and governmental agencies. Yes, the swamp goes deep but must be drained!
Is cancer just hereditary as we are told? If you have or have had relatives that passed away because of cancer does that mean you will get cancer, too? Or, if you've had a dog with cancer, will its offspring get the same cancer? Or, do you believe cancer is just a chance of bad luck, not that I believe in luck at all, good or bad? Isn't there anything we can do to help our cherished companions avoid getting cancer? Absolutely!
Again, is cancer avoidable? Yes, Is that really possible? YES!! Cancer is a symptom of an immune system/digestive system (remember 80-85% of a dog's digestive system makes up the immune system) not functioning properly and so many things matter to insure a healthy immune system or not. In all my researching, it amazes me that there is such truth available to everyone but you won't get this truth from the majority of the conventional veterinariay community. You have to realize that today, cancer is very profitable, well at least with people. With animals,the majority are perhaps treated somewhat or euthanized. In dogs, it is more profitable to keep dogs in poor health, hence, the continual visits back to the vet with one issue after another. All health issues are linked. An ear infection is a symptom of an underlying issue in the body. Allopathic medicine treats the symptoms. One glove fits all. This practice may elevate some symptoms but drives the cause deeper in the body. Today an ear infection. Next time a skin issue and then a runny eye. On and on it goes.
Here are just a few factors that will contribute, in time, to a companion getting cancer, diabetes, ear infections, dry eye, heart disease, hip dysplasia, IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) etc. in time. Pick your health issue.
feeding a processed dog food which is a 100% wrong diet for a carnivore.
vaccinations and over vaccinating (vaccination does not guarantee immunity and why would you put a vaccine with, among other toxins, mercury and aluminum, which is a neurotoxin)
using toxic pesticides on or in your companion (flea/tick/heartworm products) Do you use stuff like that on yourself or your children?
using hairspray, powdered chalk, hair products with toxic chemicals (show breeders take note)
giving tap water that may contains chlorine (bleach...a carcinogen) or fluoride and likely contains heavy metals and other harmful components
using plastic bowls for food or water. At least use those without BPA but it is far better to use good stainless steel or glass. Most ceramics that don't have lead glaze are also fine.
smoking in the house, using air fresheners or spraying anything in an aerosol can
using a microwave
I could list hundreds of potential factors but I think you get the point. So, what helps to avoid cancer and disease? Natural Rearing! That's what this website is all about. EDUCATION.
Side Note:As I continue to work on expressing my own opinion, based on educating myself with the truth, I would urge everyone to read the book by Ty Bollinger, The Truth About Cancer. Your eyes will be opened to the corruption, greed, lies, manipulation and fear put out to the citizens courtesy of big pharma, FDA, CDC, AMA, Monsanto, and the list goes on.
