Additional Foods For Bladder Stone Help

Friday, June 11, 2010

I have been reading more and more...finding foods that can be added to the canine diet to help balance the bladder...

Okay...here are some more foods that I think can easily be added to home cooked fresh meat dishes....keywords here...HOME COOKED. I think all dogs that have bladder stones need home cooked food...Wait! I say that ALL dogs should be getting home cooked meat for dinner...

Anyway...moving on, here is the addition to the foods to add to your dogs HOME COOKED dinners....

Parsley: Slightly warming, pungent, bitter and salty flavor; imoproves digestion, detoxifies meat or fish poisoning. Parsley is a great nutritional item, it contains several times the viatmin C of citrus and is one of the higher source of proviatmin A, chlorophyll, calcim, sodium, magnesium and iron.

Parsley promotes urination and dries watery mucoid conditions, good bucus in the bladder, stones in the bladder, kidney or gall bladder. Parsley is effective for nearly all kidney and urinary difficulties.

Contraindication: No nursing mother dogs! Dries up milk

Dosage; 1/2 ounce of fresh or lightly cooked parsley daily!

Radish: Cooling in nature, pungent and sweet flavor; radish moistens the lungs, cuts mucus, removes food stagnation and detoxfies. Radish offer a traditional Western remedy for gallstones and kidney and bladder stones.... which is.....

1 radish daily or 1/4 cup of radish juice (taken for several weeks)...

Not sure if this is a great food remedy for our pooches...radishes are hard to get down humans let alone a dog...but for those peeps ot there that have the dog that will eat anything..Go for it!

Here is a great food therapy...and I am looking into actual selling alpha sprouts and the dish to sprout them...but in the mean time...

Alfalfa is considered more nutritionally concentrated than other sprouts, primarily because of its rich mineralization. The tiny alfalfa seed produces a root that can reach 100 feet into the earth, where it has access to minerals and trace elements untouched by other plants. Alfalfa follows the doctrine of signatures; its ability to produce exceptional roots benefits our "roots" which are often identified physiologically as our intestines and kidney/bladder functions.

Bitter flavor, dries dampness, diuretic...it greatly benefits the urinary system and intestines, detoxifies the body...

dosage; 3/4 ounces of fresh sprouts a day
