ANTI-INFLAMMATORY & CANCER FIGHTER

TURMERIC GOLDEN PASTE RECIPE

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic turmeric powder

  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups filtered water

  • 1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/4 cup organic ghee (can substitute with coconut oil)

Directions

  • Mix the turmeric with 1 cup of the water in a pan. Save the remaining water in case you need it to thin your paste a bit.

  • Stir the liquid on low/medium heat for about 7 to 10 minutes. It should form a thick paste in this time.

  • If the paste gets too thick, add a little more water.

  • If the paste looks watery, add a little more turmeric and heat it for another couple of minutes.

  • Once your paste has thickened, add the pepper and oil and stir thoroughly.

  • Allow the mixture to cool.

  • Place it in a jar with a lid and store in the fridge.

  • It’ll keep for up to 2 weeks

You can add the Golden Paste directly to your dog’s meals  - most dogs don’t mind the taste at all!

  • Small dogs should start with about 1/4 teaspoon per day

  • Medium dogs can start with 1/2 teaspoon per day

  • Large dogs can start with 3/4 teaspoon per day

  • Giant dogs can start with 1 teaspoon per day

 

The suggested dosage to work up to is 1/4 teaspoon per 5 kg - Turmeric leaves the body quickly, so it’s best to feed smaller amounts a few times a day.

MOTION SICKNESS & NAUSEA

Ginger can be helpful for dogs with upset stomachs due to its anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger contains gingerol and shogaol which help to speed up the digestive process and reduce nausea. You can give your dog fresh ginger or ginger tea in small amounts or sprinkling powdered ginger on their food. If a dog suffers from motion sickness, ginger can be given 30 minutes before a car ride.

Powdered ginger:

0.5 to 4.5kg … up to ⅛ tsp 
4.5 to 9kg … ⅛ to ¼ tsp 
9 to 22.5kg … 1 tsp 
22.5 to 45kg … 2 tsp 
Over 45kgs … up to 1 tbsp 

Ginger tea: 

You can buy ginger tea or make your own from fresh ginger root. 

0.5 to 4.5k … less than ¼ cup, 1 to 3 times daily
4.5 to 9kg … ¼ cup, 1 to 3 times daily
9 to 22.5kg … ¼ to ½ cup, 1 to 3 times daily 
22.5 to 45kg … ½ to 1 cup, 1 to 3 times daily 
Over 45kgs … up to 1 cup, 1 to 3 times daily

NATURAL DEWORMERS

A healthy diet that supports a strong immune system is the best natural dewormer for our dogs. Sometimes food alone may not be enough so including these natural remedies can help kill worms that may be lurking in your dog.

Pumkin Seeds/Pepitas:

These amazing little seeds contain an amino acid called 'curcurbitin' which paralyses worms and eliminates them from your dogs digestive tract - always use raw unsalted seeds and preferably organic where possible. To treat worms, blend the seeds and give 1/2 tsp per 10kg of body weight once or twice a day until parasites are no longer present. 

Grated Fruits & Vegetables:

Good choices include carrots, cucumber, watercress, greens & fennel which make your dogs digestive tract a lot less welcoming to unwanted visitors! Pomegranate is particularly useful in fighting off tapeworms. Add 1tsp of any of these fruits and veggies per 5kg of body weight twice daily.
