The Best Natural Flea Treatment For Cats
The best natural flea treatment for cats may not be what you think it is. In fact, it is, without a doubt, the best way to get rid of fleas on cats, natural or otherwise. It is also the best natural flea repellant for cats.
Fleas on any furry animal are natural up to a point. The odd one will never cause a problem and you can do more harm than good by chasing an elusive flea.
It’s the proliferation of fleas that are the problem.
By the way, there is a popular feeling among vets that cats are allergic to fleas. They aren’t. Fleas are natural. But cats are allergic to many of the toxic flea preparations used to control these busy little insects.
Even though an infestation of fleas can cause you and your cat an unpleasant problem, don’t blame the flea. They are only the messengers.
What do I mean by that?
If your cat has fleas, there is a reason. Fleas do a great job of cleaning up all the toxins that your cat releases through the skin.
Any toxicity in any animal will always first find its exit point, the best way out, the least harmful way out, to release it, through the skin. This can and often does cause itching and various skin eruptions which can become infected.
The normal veterinary solution is to kill the fleas, with highly toxic, even neurotoxic, chemicals. As well as to add in immune suppressive antibiotics. As is common with medical and veterinary treatments, the solution is often much worse than the original condition.
A far better, and much more intelligent, approach to solve the problem is to look at the cause. As a natural health consultant, I am far more interested in causes than in the effects these causes have, which is secondary.
If your cat is eliminating toxins through the skin, how are they getting into your cat? Surely that is a better consideration? Surely it is more effective to stop the toxins getting into your cat, so they don’t have to be eliminated? Then there won’t be a flea problem. Duh!
Many people have no concept of how toxins are getting into themselves, let alone their cat. Here are the three most common ways:
commercial cat food (contains many toxic chemicals despite claims to the contrary)
veterinary medications, including vaccines, all contain toxic chemicals
some household cleaners, air fresheners and furnishings contain toxic chemicals which off-gas continuously
So what are the alternatives to these? What is a good cat food that doesn’t contain toxins? What effective health care system doesn’t poison your cat with toxins? What are more appropriate household cleaners, etc?
