Natural Supplement “Wonder Drugs”

20150605_131825

The Wonder “Drugs” I use the most for myself and my dogs:
Turmeric, Fish Oil, and Ginger

I use a combination of the three to treat Ace’s joint problems. He’s a picky eater when it comes to meds so it’s great to have something I can easily sprinkle over his food. They have great anti-inflammatory properties as well as a number of other health benefits. They’re a great inexpensive supplemental therapy. The best part is that they have little to no side effects!

Turmeric works by blocking enzymes in the body that cause pain and swelling. Accompanied by fish oil (which improves cardiovascular health and helps flush pain-causing toxins from the body), it can be as powerful as prescription pain killers. With fish oil, be sure to look for a higher concentration of Omega 3’s as opposed to Omega 6’s.

A few tips:
– Use Turmeric to help with diarrhea
– Use Ginger’s anti-nausea power to treat motion sickness

What natural supplements do you use for your dogs and why? Post in the comments to share your stories.
