What Is Body Fat For?
Fat cells are the long term storage units into which the body places all the stuff it cannot use. The stuff it cannot use are toxins, so our fat cells are full of toxins. To get rid of the toxins and therefore the fat your pets (and you) have to drink clean filtered water, and eat raw, biologically appropriate food. PET Plus supplies the enzymes missing from pet food.
What Is Body Fat For?
Fat is the storage place for toxins in the body. If the body can't get rid of a toxin, it has to find somewhere safe to keep it until such time as it can get rid of it. Where better to store a poison than in stable fat cells, which sit there quite happily, going nowhere.
What Is A Toxin?
A toxin, as far as the body is concerned, is anything it can't use. The beauty of youth is that the body's mechanisms for dealing with toxins work perfectly, so they are detoxified in the liver and excreted via the bowels, kidneys, breath and sweat.
But as time goes by, these systems are tested to their limit and eventually become less efficient until such point as they fail. So what can the body do to stay alive and not succumb to a slow, intoxicating deterioration and death?
Fat cells are the answer! They are pretty stable storage units. Think of them like long term storage. So the body directs anything toxic to the fat cells, which get bigger and bigger as they accumulate more toxins.
What Can't The Body Use?
The body finds it tough to use anything that that has been cooked, processed, chemically preserved, artificially created or unnaturally damaged. Anything like this is more difficult for the body to process than natural foods and drinks.
The Good Stuff
The answer lies in nature. Look at nature and do what's natural, so
- drink clean, fresh, chemical free water
- eat clean, fresh, natural, unprocessed food.
- Go for a walk in the sun
- Sleep when it's dark
The Human Digestive Tract
The human digestive tract, starting with the mouth and teeth, is best adapted to natural, raw, ripe fruit, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. It is too long to cope with much animal protein (meat, fish, egg, dairy), so the large bowel gets clogged up with fermenting, degenerating animal products. This produces toxins which have to be either eliminated or stored away.
The Carnivore Digestive Tract
On the other hand, the carnivore's digestive system is much shorter and perfectly designed to digest other animals in their natural state, in other words, raw meat, bone, offal, guts, fur, toe-nails and all other parts of the body.
Carnivores eat herbivores, mostly. The guts of herbivores are full of chewed, partially digested grass and other vegetable matter. This means that carnivores to get access to pre-digested vegetable matter which is also important for their nutrition.
The Herbivore Digestive Tract
Herbivores have an incredibly long digestive tract, starting with a great set of grinding teeth which pulverize vegetation into a pulp, with a fermentation chamber at the beginning in the case of ruminants like cows, sheep and goats.
Some herbivores such as rabbits, guinea pigs and horses have a fermentation chamber at the end. Horses are designed to eat their faeces at certain times to further break down the plant cell walls (cellulose) releasing more nutrients for absorption.
The Digestive Process, Briefly
Chewing releases the food enzymes contained in the raw food. This starts the digestive process of food breakdown and nutrient absorption into the blood throughout the gut, from the mouth to the colon.
Right at the start, absorption starts to take place in the mouth. This means too that when chemically treated water enters the mouth, many chemicals, notably chlorine, are absorbed right there in a matter of seconds.
So filter the water you and your pets drink and bathe in because absorption through the skin is a reality.
Various enzymes, produced mostly by the pancreas, mix with the gut contents to enhance digestion, releasing nutrients which are absorbed into the blood. These nutrients are carried to the cells to fuel the body's activities.
Shifting The Toxins And Therefore The Fat
Clean, chemical free water is an essential route for toxins to get out of the body. So a human needs about 2 litres of water daily. This should produce in a human, 6-12 clear wees a day.
Make sure all pets have a plentiful supply of clean, chemical free water at all times. You will need to get a water filter.
To remove the toxins from the fat cells requires enzymes and energy. Raw food is the only supply of enzymes to the body, so whatever you and your pets choose to eat, eat it raw!
An easy way to get a massive supply of raw micronutrients and enzymes is to take digestive enzymes such as Juice Plus as humans and to give PET Plus to our dogs and cats. I have been doing this for 20 years and know it works!
As fat cells are not very active, they have a poor blood supply, so exercise is essential to increase the blood flow which takes nutrients to the cells and removes the toxins that the cells have released, allowing them to shrink a bit every time.
An hour's brisk walk apparently produces enough fat removing enzymes (lipase) to last 12 hours.
Sleep enough so you don't need to take stimulants to stay awake! (Caffeine, sugar and salt are the commonest). Contact me if you need some help for yourself or your pet.
