Following an abnormal + welcome amount of rain this winter, we’re in full #superbloom in SoCal right now! Which means an influx of parasites are hanging out. I began a 30-day, proactive holistic protocol of antiparasitics & internal systems support for my Labs.
How-to links for fermenting raw seeds & fermenting garlic can be found in each section below and on the menu.
Fermented (with whey) organic raw pumpkin seeds in paste form will be fed twice a day for 10-days. I make a thick paste leaving a little bit of seed particles present for roughage. Quick info about why: Pumpkin seeds contain the amino acid Cucurbitacin. Cucurbitacin eliminates intestinal bugs by acting as a dewormer. A study published in 2016 by Maciej Grzybek concluded pumpkin seed extracts are effective.

Fermented (with whey) organic raw garlic will be minced & fed with meals 2 times per day, the 10-days following the pumpkin seeds paste. Quick info: Garlic works with the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps eliminate waste + toxins & boosts immune function by increasing the production of antibodies; which aids in reducing inflammation. Garlic is a detoxifier; it supports beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract & eliminates harmful bacteria. It is also a circulatory system supporter so garlic helps keep blood flowing and helps heart + lung function. Additionally, it’s said to be a flea preventative.

A wild crafted + organic herbal blend will be given for the final 10-days of the protocol. These are herbs that are dried + crushed to a fine powder. They’re given to support the bowel for both antiparastic effects & for effective function. Slippery Elm, Barberry, Sage, Cascara, Milk Thistle, Garlic, Juniper Berry, & Chapparal are the chosen herbs. Some of these herbs were grown in my garden & some came from The Monterey Bay Spice Co.
⚖️ Please note the amounts given to each of my dogs in this 30-day protocol is different & will be different for your dog too.
