Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” Never is this more true than providing what your body needs to fight infection.
Over the last several decades, over-use of antibiotics has reached an all-time high. The result has been drug-resistant bacteria and “superbugs” that evolve faster than scientists can figure out how to fight them. A future where bacteria are at the top of the food chain is not unheard of.
Long before there were pharmaceutical antibiotics – developed in the 1940s, there were foods and herbs that helped guard against infection and disease on a daily basis. Many of these natural defenders are still in use today with holistic healers around the globe.

A small group of raw feeding advocates believe that we should not give dogs supplements, and for the normal healthy dog, they could be right. However, herbs and nutrients can be used therapeutically to alleviate many illnesses. In this issue, we explore the supplements that can help with heart disease. 
It is important to note that if you or your dog have heart disease you need to be under the supervision of a health professional and that you should not cease prescribed medication without supervision. It might also be advisable to consult a qualified herbalist. One excellent book is Herbs for Pets by Mary Wulff-Tilford and Greg Tilford. 
The most important herbs for the heart include:
lily of the valley,
motherwort and
Lilly of the Valley

This herb can be used where the strength of the heart is insufficient, as in angina, or in the treatment of an aging heart. This is particularly the case when there are fatty deposits in the blood vessels.
Hawthorn Berries

These are one of the most valuable remedies for the circulatory system. They strengthen the force of the contraction of the heart muscle while also dilating the vessels of the coronary circulation. They can be used in most circulatory problems as they will relax or stimulate the heart according to its need and normalise heart function.
Hawthorn may potentiate the action of heart medication and beta blockers. Therefore patients on these drugs should not use Hawthorn unless supervised by a physician. Other cardio active herbs should not be used with Hawthorn, including lily-of-the-valley roots, motherwort, pheasant's eye herb, squill, cola, ginger, mate, shepherd's purse, oleander, strophanthus, and black hellebore.

This is a relaxing herb and will strengthen and normalise the heart function.

This herb strengthens and normalises the heart and also rids the body of any build-up of water that is due to insufficient heart strength. Care has to be taken though with this herb as it can increase blood pressure.

This herb is known for its treatment of skin problems but it also strengthens the heart’s contractions.

Whilst this herb increases the strength of the heart beat it also decreases its rate and is valuable as a relaxant as well.
Spice up Your Life!
Research is now showing that five spices we've long savoured for their flavour are also nutritional powerhouses.
Cinnamon: This natural germ-fighter also helps lower blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol levels - one-quarter teaspoon a day is a healthy goal.
2. Thyme: It makes it onto the list of healthy herbs by virtue of its anticancer potency. It's also long been used as an antiseptic.
Cumin: Concealed in chilli powder is one of the world's most popular spices (it's a key ingredient in Indian curries, too) and another anticancer soldier.
4. Oregano: A food-world superpower, leaves of the herb boast 42 times more antioxidants than apples. Oregano also fights yeast overgrowth. 
Turmeric: Called the "Queen of the Kitchen" by Indian cooks, turmeric (and its active ingredient, curcumin) has earned its crown. Studies show promise in fighting cystic fibrosis, colon cancer, arthritis, and even Alzheimer's.
