Healing - When it comes to raising your own foods you quickly learn that with livestock becomes dead stock and prevention is the best cure for any illness. Regardless of how clean, well fed, how much room to roam or how comfortable the dwelling you provide them dung happens and you're going to have to figure out how to heal your plants and animals before they die. If you have the money to call a vet to your farm everytime you have a health concern, then your animals will have a great shot at making it through what you are battling, however you are missing out on a great opportunity to bond and grow physically and spiritually with your pet and our planet Earth. And if you can't afford to call a veterinarian its time to become at one with Earth and be ready to lose a few heath battles along the way.
I am on a Stewardian holistic wavelength however I prescribe to whatever works for you and whatever life form you are trying to bring back to optimum health. My over 30 years experience says that if you have an animal or plant that is a GMO and it got sick from artificial substances it is best to cure it with artificial products such as lab made medications. Equally if you have a non genetically modified or heritage breed and you are feeding it natural foods it will accept natural healing much better. The key is to understand and work with the DNA and breed in or out any desirable or undesirable traits. Getting the injury under control with the proper treatment is key to a speedy recovery. Placebos can work in your mind however your animal believes in you and not your special potion or spiritual remedy so get it right and don't convince yorself your animal is healing when it may not be. Most people who heal without consulting a vet probably have a lot of experience working along side vets in care of previous pets or live stock.
Previously sick animals can be most beneficial to consume if they are healed naturally and not diseased. This answers to why hunters and gatherers appeal to foods of the wild. We raise our own animals to heal our spirits and have sovereignty over what goes into our bodies. In an uncontaminated world our DNA would respond triumphantly to any and all health issues. Without the experiences of illness the body can't program itself how to cure. With each problem a solution is programmed and stored in memory and when this tissue is consumed its DNA intelligence is passed on to you. You really are what you eat.
On this page we will share our healing triumphs and defeats in hopes of gaining a better understanding of what it takes to procure, cultivate and manage the healing aspects of farm life. What works for me ma not work for you when trying to heal your pets.

How to prevent anemia in Piglets naturally

We scooped a few shovels full of dirt in a bucket from another pen to give to the piglets.

Piglets are now eating the dirt and taking in essential iron minerals through the soil they are consuming.
Happy and healthy are our piglets. Thank you
You spent extra time and money sourcing out your heritage livestock specimen. You vow to raise it as natural as possible and produce its offspring. If you are raising pigs one of the first conflicts you face when farrowing is to give or not to give iron shots to your piglets.
Iron is necessary to prevent anemia by importing and distributing oxygen to the body and then exporting the carbon dioxide out of the body. Lack of iron results in stunted growth, muscle weakness and death. If your piglet looks pale around the nose, eyes or mouth it could have an iron deficiency and become more susceptible to illness like scours.
Popping a pill down your piglets throats, giving it an injection behind the ears or in the back of its neck is most likely to disturb the organic farmer's soul as it should. The core of Earth contains iron and it's dirt is rich in the said mineral. If you have a pig that is living outside, rooting up the soil it most likely has a large bank of this mineral in it's system and is able to pass it on during the pregnancy to the piglets to be born. This very same practice that is not part of a factory pig's life that lives on a concrete floor will program the offspring to dig and root for the mineral of life we know as Iron.
If your sow is on a dirt floor you have no iron deficiency to worry about. If not make sure you set a side a bucket or two if your sows are farrowing in the winter, toss it in their shelter and watch them eat it up like candy. Everything your animal needs to survive and heal in life is programmed in its DNA. All you have to do is gain a state of understanding, follow its lead, provide what it wants and you will succeed in furthering your heritage breed back to its natural genetic states.
