The Research on the Power of Nature

Research – The power of nature: What’s that?

Dear friends, it is with pleasure that I announce the publication – on an international scientific journal (Journal of Immunology Research) – of one of the most important researches realized by SANYpet’s Department of Research and Development – under the guide of immunologist  Prof. Giuseppe Terrazzano – titled “In vitro effects of some botanicals with anti-inflammatory and anti-toxic activity”.

This scientific work not only confirms all the already known antioxidant and antinflammatory properties of medicinal plants, but it’s also the first publication that demonstrates the antitoxic properties of a specific pool of botanicals against oxytetracycline toxicity. We identified the toxic potential of this antibiotic*, legally and widely used in industrial farming.

We have tens of researches that show how our nutraceutical diets (Forza10 Active Line) can solve the majority of chronic diseases in our pets: this is exactly because these pathologies are caused by oxytetracycline residues, that are present way too often in traditional pet food.

I want to be clear on the fact that all pet food companies are – along with the inspection and production chain (health authorities, farmers, meal producers) – victims themselves, since the problem is in legislation itself. As a matter of fact, the law only prescribes control of oxytetracycline residues on muscles, kidneys, liver, eggs, milk and honey, ignoring bone tissue and fat, since they’re not considered as edible.

However, chemical and pharmaceutical contamination mostly takes place through the (unaware) consumption of bone and fat, actual “dumpsters” for toxic substances. We can’t ignore the fact that all food realized with the mechanical separation of meat from bone (wurstel, hamburgers, nuggets, sausages, etc…) can contain bone tissue in various percentages.

 

Research – The power of nature: Strenghts

I want all pet owner to think about these points:

  • SANYpet, a cruelty free company, was born from clinical observations and experiences on food related pathologies.
  • It has a Research&Development Department that realized tens of researches on the most common chronic or relapsing pathologies of dogs and cats, identifying all the extremely effective recipes of our Active, Legend and Sensitive Lines.
  • It has often worked in collaboration with several universities.
  • It has published more than 20 research on prestigious international scientific journals and is about to publish at least another 5 in the close future, investigating what harms our pets and how to restore their health.
  • It uses exceptional and pristine raw materials for its diets, having also realized two production plants in Iceland for the exact purpose of avoiding any kind of contamination from oxytetracycline.
  • It has suppliers from New Zealand, another land that’s as pristine and uncontaminated as Iceland.
  • It has an in-depth knowledge on the worst pollutants and on how to avoid them and, thanks to the know-how of Dr. Gianandrea Guidetti, on how to best use medicinal plants to restore health.
  • It has important international patents on technologies developed in order to protect the effectiveness of botanicals.
  • It has an in-depth knowledge in regard to the delicate balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, that are extremely important.
  • It has done everything to be the most trustworthy company for the health of your beloved furry friends.
  • Everyone makes claims, we keep our promises, you have the word of Sergio Canello.

Long Hair Cat

Do you have long haired cat? Are you demoralized by inextricable knotting?

You know that there is a solution, and incidentally it’s the food.

No one has ever discovered the cause that makes this annoying but dangerous cluster of hair, I can assure you that I saw many cats stop having this problem by eliminating from their diet all the foods that contain meat derived from intensive farming, obviously first of all the various brand kibbles.

What makes these knots form? Simply an inflammation of the sebaceous gland, which puts abundant sebum secretions, that ends up becoming a great glue.
It can only be eliminated through careful use of scissors.
If you cut the knots and change to food to one that uses fish from the sea as its protein, you will see that in most cases, the problem will not reappear, indeed, the hair will be shiny and smoother than you have ever seen, with no need for daily brushing.

If you like it, let me know how it worked for you!

OMEGA3 to Have Elastic Tissues

Are Omega3 helpful?

Have you experienced joint, muscle, or tendon injuries, not from sports, but from a completely random situation?

Just follow any sport, and it has become normal to see athletes in their twenties suffering serious trauma like a herniated disc, or breakage of the Achilles tendon, meniscus, or crucial ligament. The same unfortunate incidents can occur similarly to our dogs.

The explanation is incredibly simple: a lack of the Omega3 fatty acids that maintain the elasticity of supporting tissues. Nutrition is often abound of Omega6 (too rich in cereals for example) which causes the exact opposite, stiffening the body structure.
How can I be sure?
From the simple fact that, enriching the diet of canines with Omega3 (all of our formulas are very rich in it) prevents or reduces the occurrence of most of these problems.

To get back to situations of natural birth, we have to go back to having the tissues, especially the uterus and pelvic girdle, very elastic, as it should be physiologically. Also hemorrhages are significantly influenced by the elastic fabric vassal, responsible for the retraction that when a vessel is torn, it holds together with a wonderful coagulation mechanism, to occlude the blood vessel itself.

Moral: to your cats and dogs, give them kibbles rich in Omega3.
The same goes for you; Add to your daily diet foods that yield greater amounts of Omega3 (for example: one gram of fish oil, hemp, or flax).
Just try it, and see your health improve!

Food Intolerance: An Inflammatory Process?

An intolerance can cause an inflammatory phenomenon and / or increased secretions and excretions.

It’s not difficult to notice that the two mechanisms cited are really those that the body has to defend from substances recognized as toxic: expelling, with secretions and excretions, or “burning them” with an inflammatory process.

Such a phenomenon can hit any organ, because each individual has a different sensibility. We will see, then, dogs and cats with (almost always chronic) ear infections, conjunctivitis, dermatitis, gastroenteritis, cystitis, nephritis, arthritis and so on.

A food that the body is intolerant to will cause an acute inflammatory process whenever such food is ingested.

If the food is part of the daily diet, the inflammatory process will become inevitably chronic.

The use of an anti-inflammatory medication should be exclusively chosen for the cases where it’s not possible to remove the cause of the inflammation, if the inflammation phenomenon causes a state of life too debilitating, or if the disease is based on autoimmune and when the cause is unknown and unidentified.

Taking a step in the animal world, I can easily say that most of the inflammatory processes that currently affects our dogs at home are caused by food intolerances.
By eliminating the “harmful” food, it will be possible to avoid the use of specific medicine because the inflammatory process  will quickly regress spontaneously.

How to Recognize Intolerances and Allergies

Given the growing spread of diet-related diseases, it is important to refine as much as possible the difference between allergies and food intolerance.
Following are the basic concepts distinguishing one from the other, and highlighting the distinctive elements of the two diseases.

Summary table of the distinctive signs of each disorder:

  • Allergy: Involvement of the immune system;
  • Intolerance: Physical-chemical reaction without involvement of the immune system;
  • Allergy: Rates of response to diet by deprivation for between 20 and 90 days;
  • Intolerance: Rates of response to diet by deprivation for between 2 and 20 days;
  • Allergy: Localization of lesions and itching nose, lips, armpits, belly, limbs;
  • Intolerance: Localization of lesions and itching of the outer ear, neck, underarms, back, thighs, scrotum, wrists;
  • Allergy: Almost exclusively bilateral;
  • Intolerance: Lesions tend to be unilateral;
  • Allergy: Reaction rate in less than a few hours;
  • Intolerance: Between one and ten years;
  • Allergy: Mainly skin and gastrointestinal problems;
  • Intolerance: Involvement of all primary systems, with inflammation and / or increased secretions and excretions;
  • Allergy: Not affected by the amount of allergen;
  • Intolerance: Reaction influenced by the allergen dose.

An Imbalance Between Omega3 and Omega6

Did you know that an imbalance of Omega3 and Omega6 can cause a tendency to obesity?

In agricultural production, commercially raised livestock is fed corn silage and given oxytetracycline to reduce the incidence of infection. This antibiotic is stored in the animals, and leaves a toxic residue in their systems so this and the resulting higher Omega6 levels from the silage make it into our milk and food, leading to an Omega6/3 imbalance in our bodies.

In infants, an obesity epidemic (we refer to epidemic when there are a high number of cases of a specific pathology, regardless of whether it is actually infectious) can only logically be linked to these higher Omega6 levels in milk, since it comes primarily from silage-fed milk cows.
Grass, on the other hand, is very rich is beneficial Omega3, especially in the spring, allowing pregnant females to have a large quantity of it in their blood, so their fetuses benefit as well. Because of this natural diet, grass-fed livestock do not impart oxytetracycline residues and higher Omega6 levels to our food. I remember that Omega3 is also essential for brain development, and nothing is left to chance.

Going back to obesity, the situation in the US is an obvious example, where obesity has become a national emergency. However, it is necessary to emphasize that if we observe the population of a large North American city – an ideal place to see millions of people in one place – it seems that people are largely either of normal weight, or are extremely fat. There is little in between. My belief is that certain individuals become obese because their system is unbalanced due to a diet overly rich in Omega6 and poor in Omega3, linked to the agricultural production methods described above. It’s true that some individuals just eat too much, but I believe that is more due to this imbalance.

In support of this point of view, the American Journal of Lipid Research recently published an article which blamed the imbalance ratio between Omega6/3 in food for the development of obesity. According to this study, presented by Professor Gerard Ilhaud (University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis in with CNRS, INRA), the imbalance of Omega6 and Omega3 promotes obesity from one generation to another. This is extremely important because it could explain why children of obese people often have the same fate.

As proof, the researcher exposed four generations of mice to an occidental type diet, replicating the imbalance between Omega6/3 (10/1) and noticed that the weight of the mice gradually increased in subsequent generations. To explain this transition from one generation to the other, it’s necessary to involve the epigenetics: which is to say that the genetic heritage (genoma) can’t be modified, but that we can alter the operation of some genes by adjusting food.

Let’s remember that Omega6 and Omega3 are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids that do not naturally occur in the human body, and must be acquired from food. In the past few decades, obesity has significantly increased as the fat characteristics of our food have changed.
Thus, it’s not difficult to connect this increase in obesity with the increase of Omega6 in our diet to the detriment of Omega3. The ratio of Omega6/3 has tripled or quadrupled in forty years, with the United States
ratio at 40/1, while in Europe, the average is 10/1 – which is already too high.

I would like to point out that this idea isn’t crazy or irresponsible. In fact, it has been shown that the minor addition of Omega3 right flax seeds in the diet of breeding cattle has shown to be very effective in improving both the health condition of the animal and the quality of the products they provide (milk, meat, cheese and yogurt).

The breeding of animals for food is an unsustainable practice for many reasons. There are ethical considerations, but there is also a need to stop the intensive farming which has a high price in generating waste and pollution from animal excrement in the form of methanol gas, and the negative effects of the chemical and pharmacological products used in the production cycle.

As I said, Omega3 is present in flax seed, canola, hemp and fish, especially fatty ones (salmon, sardines and mackerel are especially rich). So it is recommended that humans eat this type of fish once or twice every week. I also saw that it helps in keeping the skin hydrated.
Fish consumption should be limited; since the average life span is now around 90 years, there can really be an accumulation of heavy metal toxins. This is not an area of concern for cats and dogs since their life span is five times below that of humans. Paradoxically, there are more stringent controls on raw materials intended for dog and cat foods, than for human foods.

I believe there is ample evidence indicating that imbalance in the Omega6/3 ratio can affect both our bodies and our eating habits. With minor adjustments in agricultural processes for livestock, along with increased consumption of high quality Omega3 foods, people can reduce their tendency to obesity.

Dogs of All Breeds, are Having Increasing Difficulty Giving Natural Birth

Increasing Difficulty Giving Natural Birth: a focus on all breeds dogs

Considering that the females of every species has always given birth without the intervention of a surgeon (obviously risking life and, often, losing it), it seems logical to try to understand why. It’s understood that the C-section represents a very important instrument for saving those not able to give birth. As a male, it’s easy to be accused of having no justification to weigh in on this sensitive issue. I have no intention of being judgmental, I just want to communicate my nearly thirty years of veterinary experience.

The difficulty on the part of the female has increased progressively since the 1970’s, and currently the rate of Cesarean sections is high. The question arises: is this necessary or forced? Behind the caesarean section, for both doctors and veterinarians, is a tempting business. Clinics can easily take advantage of the legitimate fear of childbirth. Mothers are often terrified by stories from relatives, friends, and acquaintances. I have to admit that for many years, I was convinced that women had become unable to bear the slightest pain. Instead, I now realize that many women can’t give birth even if they put forth their best will and have not been influenced by others.

It seems too simple to be real, and yet, veterinarians have observed that the cause is the acute nutritional shortage of Omega3. I have already abundantly reported on the reasons behind this shortage (If you would like to deepen your understanding, continue reading my articles at sergiocanello.com), so I will limit myself to stating Omega3’s ability to elasticize cell membranes. This plays a role in all of the structures that carry out a successful childbirth: the dilation of the cervix, relaxation of the pelvis, contraction of the uterus, and the coagulation of torn veins and arteries.

A nutrition rich in fish, fish oil, olive oil, and flax seed should enable a natural birth without great difficulty and suffering of the mother. I am just a simple veterinarian, but why not apply this knowledge to women? If there is a doctor reading this, I would be happy to compare information regarding this sensitive issue.
I invite all women who are thinking of giving a natural birth (I have read from statistics that those who appreciate my work the most are those between 25 to 35 years old, the age at which we most often think of having children) to prepare at least six months before the birth by incorporating the suggested foods into their diet.

Of course, I invite all of those who are either parents or dog breeders, and have decided to experience the miracle of pregnancy, to use nutrition rich in Omega3.

A Vegan Diet for Diabetics?

Did You Know that a Vegan Diet is Very Effective for Diabetics?

Dr. Alberto Donzelli, the ASL in Milano, Italy, suggests a vegan diet for those with diabetes.

This strategy was born from a scientific study that divided 100 patients (“assisted person” according to a new definition, which I consider absolutely ridiculous) affected by diabetes in two groups of 50. The first group followed the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) with a diet consisting of 15-20% of calories from protein, less than 7% from saturated fat, and 60-70% from carbohydrates and monounsaturated fat, for a total of 500-1000 calories daily.

The second group followed an integrated vegan diet with Vitamin B12, comprised of 65% or more calories from carbohydrates with a low glycemic index, 20% fat and 15% protein. This diet “was based on vegetables, fresh fruit and dry oil, integral cereals and vegetables, with a bit of oil added.
Everyone was allowed to drink alcohol – one drink per day for women and two for men.”

From every perspective, the vegan diet was the winner. The superiority of the vegan model, in fact, was realized in 67% of those following a vegan diet versus 44% of the patients who followed the ADA diet, with weight loss achieved at six pounds versus four pounds. Moreover, the vegan diet allowed for a sharp reduction of anti-diabetic medicine (43% vegan versus 26% ADA), a major reduction of LDL cholesterol (23% versus 11%), and glycated hemoglobin (1.48% versus 0.81%).

Though “vegan dog” may seem a contradiction in terms since they are obviously forced to eat as their owners dictate, many seemed to feel good on this diet, so why not try it before a disease becomes serious?
In the vegetarian diet, it’s necessary to pay close attention to the mixture of plant proteins to ensure inclusion of all necessary amino acids, so as not to risk a nutritional deficit.

The Forza10 vegan diet is perfectly balanced, and can be a great way to check the effects of diet on these increasingly widespread illnesses in both humans and animals.
We also offer Forza10 Weight Control, specifically formulated for those with Type 2 Diabetes.

And, on our website, www.forza10.com, you can also find , Forza10 Immuno.
This has been shown to turn an autoimmune disease like Leishmaniasis into a “normal” form, with a return to clinical health. For those who are interested, we can provide the poster presented at the World Congress of Recife in Brazil, where we were among the top eight chosen from three thousand exhibitors, and the subject of a panel discussion of medical and veterinary specialists around the world.

You may want to try a vegan diet if you have diabetes, as research indicates it can have a significant impact on the manifestations of the disease in the body.

Is Inflammation a Body Healing Process?

Conventional medicine tends to automatically seek to suppress symptoms during sickness, when inflammation is an indication of the body “repairing” itself.

When you take an anti-inflammatory drug, that natural defense response in the body is smothered, which seems to cause a continuation and increase in chronic and/or degenerative diseases.

In practice, inhibiting this natural response of the body to defend itself from illness or negative stimulus, we prevent and force the elimination of the defense system, causing the body to rebalance with an increase in chronic or degenerative diseases.

Consider this metaphor: City trash is eliminated by burning in an incinerator. While it removes the trash from the city, the burning itself creates new issues in generating smoke, heat, noise and toxic emissions. But if we “switch that off” by turning off the incinerator, have we really done the best thing? In that case, we leave the trash in the city and pollute the environment. Likewise, by switching off inflammation in the body with medicine, we still leave harmful toxins in the body.

If the stimulus of the disease persists, the body is forced into a state of chronic inflammation. It’s debilitating and painful, but effective (if the waste continues to be produced, the incinerator will obviously be forced to work continuously).

Anti-inflammatory drugs may be the only choice in some cases where it’s not possible to remove the cause of the inflammation, or when this is either unknown and/or unidentified.

Food intolerances, the field in which SANYpet is the undisputed leader, can cause their own inflammatory issues and/or increase in secretions and excretions. Such phenomena can affect any organ, as each individual has a different sensibility.
Where food intolerance exists, there can be acute inflammation every time that food is ingested. And, if that food is part of the daily diet, the inflammation will inevitably become chronic. If we fail to remove the cause, we cannot eliminate the effect.

In sum, it is important to determine what is causing inflammation in the body before initiating anti-inflammatory treatment.
Sometimes it’s best to let the body defenses operate naturally, so as not to create even more issues or further development of chronic or degenerative conditions.

Are Vomiting and Diarrhea Essential Defense Mechanisms?

Vomiting and Diarrhea: precious essential defense mechanism

When the body comes into contact with a toxic substance or poison through the gastrointestinal system, it does the most logical thing it can do: get away as fast as it can from the toxic substance through vomiting and diarrhea.

Vomiting is an extremely direct way; whatever is in the stomach that the body perceives as toxic is directly rejected. The body is so sophisticated that vomiting can be initiated even from the duodenum, the first section of the intestines.

In fact, it is able to reverse the direction of peristalsis motion (the movements that “push” the contents toward the natural exit), bringing it to the stomach and then expelling it.

When the poison gets further into the intestines, the body does another entirely logical and functional thing: it increases the speed of peristalsis in order to expel as soon as possible.

Thereby, the intestinal contents will fortunately only be partly absorbed, becoming semi-liquid or liquid at the rectum and generating diarrhea.

In these ways, the body prevents absorption of toxins or poisons ingested via the stomach.
It would seem from this that vomiting and diarrhea are indeed essential defense mechanisms.
