August 30, 2020 marks the 16th annual National Holistic Pet Day. It is the perfect opportunity to celebrate and promote all the ways a holistic lifestyle can benefit pets.
A holistic approach is one that considers the mind, body and spirit as a whole, not just a sum of its parts.
When we consider addressing our pets as a whole, is there anything more holistic than Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil with naturally occurring CBD? We think not!
Consider how hemp oil works within the body – all animals (with the exception of insects) have a biochemical communication system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS regulates the peripheral and central nervous system (including the brain), immunological system, organs and vital physiological functions. It ensures that the major systems of the body stay in balance. When there is a deficiency of endocannabinoid production, multiple cannabinoid receptors throughout the body utilize the addition of phytocannabinoids (plant based cannabinoids, such as those found in hemp) to provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring, thus helping the body work as a whole to achieve homeostasis.
The benefits are truly whole body. Treatibles Organic Full Spectrum Hemp Oil with naturally occurring CBD products help:
- Maintain normal emotional balance and promoting relaxation
- Support digestive tract health and assisting the immune system
- Enhance function of joints and connective tissue
- The body’s natural inflammatory response
Tips to help your pet live their best holistic life
Consider adding a holistic veterinarian to your pet’s healthcare team. These vets are conventionally trained and then spend hours and hours of continuing education to master the practice of treating the whole body using a host of modalities including eastern and western herbs, homeopathy, laser therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, ozone therapy and more. They take into account the pet’s physiology, emotional state, behavior and what makes them uniquely them. Holistic vets not only treat a pet’s symptoms but also work to discover the source of the imbalance and heal the whole body.
Offer the best real food diet that works within your budget. It can be homemade, pre-made refrigerated or frozen, dehydrated or freeze-dried. Independent pet food and supply retailers can be an excellent resource in helping you find what’s right for your pet.
Daily walks, games of fetch and tug of war for dogs; wand toys, balls and small toys that can be batted around for cats. Change up the routine!
Puzzle toys encourage thought and strategy; alternating routes for daily walks; interactive play for bonding experiences; rotating toys; replacing old, worn and torn toys with new ones, etc.
Keep the home free from toxic chemicals and cleaners; have everyone remove their shoes before entering your home; provide eco-friendly toys, bedding, bowls, and kitty litter; offer a safe space for your fur baby to call their own such as a special bed, crate, cat condo, etc.
These tips + your unconditional love = a happy, healthy pet.
