The RMF Science

Are you confused about why or how RMF heals? What is it about the RMF diet that causes dogs to heal? Is it the food in the bowl? Not exactly. But if it is not the diet, what IS IT?

That’s where the science of Natural Hygiene comes in. Taking control of our health requires more than just a change in diet. It requires a certain level of independence and a deep understanding of one simple TRUTH: the body is SELF-HEALING. Optimal health can be achieved when the cause of disease is removed. Sounds simple enough, but if you don’t know what the cause IS, then how can you remove it? Amazingly, even “holistic” alternative practitioners do not investigate and eliminate CAUSES.

The Cause of Disease

Rotational MonoFeeding (RMF) is based on real science! The kind that was in existence before multi-billion dollar industries began earnestly misusing science, turning it into something that sells products. Science must work in real life, otherwise it’s not science, it’s something else. RMF is a perfect example of applied science because it operates within the laws that govern all life on earth.

In dogs and cats, there’s one primary factor that influences health much more than any other and that is DIET. No matter how much vets want to blame disease on genetics and bad luck, it is mis-feeding, primarily commercial feeding, that causes disease to be the norm among them.

Despite their claims and credentials,  vets actually know very little about diet and even less about how to create the conditions of health and remove the causes of disease. Even holistic vets know far less than we assume. They very often make disease worse with their remedies intended only to suppress symptoms. Holistic practitioners claim that the substances they use “assist” or “allow” the body to heal, but this is not the case. Herbs are not as harmful as drugs. It is their toxic effects that cause a dog’s body to desist its symptomatic expression in favor of eliminating the foreign chemicals.

What is Natural Hygiene?

Natural Hygiene is the science and philosophy behind RMF.  Natural Hygiene (NH) holds that perfect health is the normal state of being for all living organisms, and that it is maintained through natural, self-initiating, self-healing processes. NH further maintains that health is achieved only by the conscientious application of healthful living practices in all areas of life.

NH is based on the idea that all the power to heal resides within the body. Nature is always correct and we cannot improve upon it. It is the violating of the natural laws of life that causes all illness.

The natural hygiene approach to health and disease offers a great deal of promise to pet owners. This vast body of knowledge is not currently being applied to pets except through RMF.

Thousands of pet owners are reversing symptoms and full blown diagnosed disease using the science of NH.

NH offers to reconcile science and nature, in a way that the medical system fails to do. For over a century and a half, thousands of health seekers have acquired the highest levels of health through these basic principles based on natural laws, and yet very few people have even heard of it. Fewer still are applying its life-preserving principles to the care of cats and dogs, to their great detriment. Since NH takes all of its cues from observations of nature, it is universally applicable to all species.

In humans, following the principles of NH requires a great deal of resolve and commitment. It encompasses 19 different areas – food, air, water, exercise, rest, psychological security, creative expression, purposeful work, etc.

Applying NH principles to our pets

Applying natural hygiene to the care of our animals, by contrast, is vastly simpler. Their needs are very basic. Food that meets their biological requirements, rest, a bit of exercise every day, and fresh air. Their simple needs work in our favor because when we want to figure out what’s making them sick, there are relatively few areas to investigate. Far and away, the one that holds the most potential return on our investment is the area of diet.

Please think about this. Every cell in a dog or cat’s body is made from the food that goes in their mouths. If what they are being fed isn’t what their bodies adapted to during the 50 million years that their species has been around, sickness is the natural and inevitable result. All we have to do is figure out how the foods we’ve been feeding them deviate from their true needs. And fix it!

How Does RMF Incorporate the Principles of Natural Hygiene?

One of the fundamental concepts of Natural Hygiene (NH) is that digestion is made vastly more complicated when foods of different chemical composition are eaten together. All species with the capacity to digest only one food at a time need to be aware of this fact. Dogs are no exception. Wild dogs do this NATURALLY, with their intrinsic wisdom. Domestic dogs have to eat whatever we put out for them. WE must be aware of their biological limitations, and feed within them. Being mindful of which foods digest easily together pays off in increased digestive efficiency, and an overall higher level of health.

NH is about much more than just food combining, however. The most useful component of NH is the idea that the body HEALS ITSELF when we remove the causes. Wastes that perpetually circulate in the body from mis-feeding, mis-combining and commercial feeding slowly injure tissues and organs. It is these repeated injuries that cause illness, whether acute or chronic. However, just like tissues that knit back together and normalize when they are injured on the outside, that same amazing self-healing happens internally. We just have to stop injuring them with our daily feeding practices!

Dog Nutrition: A Contrived Controversy

Dog nutrition is not confusing, complicated or mysterious. Veterinary industry has made it appear so and it is a crime against our pets. Marketing intended to confuse pet owners and complicate feeding has served to keep millions of pets sick and owners dependent on the medical system.  Conveniently, this has also unduly influenced the training of those in the veterinary industry who recommend and profit from its use.

Nobody could make the claim that vets deliberately cause suffering. It’s the rare vet who doesn’t truly care about dogs. But to suffering dogs, intention doesn’t matter. What matters is that the suffering need not happen, and would not happen if vets were taught the right information. For the sake of our dogs, we must recognize that regardless of how much vets care about dogs, they are nothing but middle-men trained by a system that only thrives when dogs don’t. We’ve got to stop pretending that there’s nothing motivating the pet care industry besides love and compassion for animals.

Industries are non-human entities. It is foolish to expect them to have human attributes, like compassion and heart. The cold, hard truth is that the primary reason for an industry to exist is to serve up dividends to its shareholders. Systems and industries seek only to sustain themselves, which they will do in any way possible. No matter how harmful or unscrupulous. We pet owners must face the fact that it is not the job of the pet care industry to look out for our animals’ health. That’s OUR job, and this is best done via wholesale avoidance of the so-called pet “care” industry.

Can you imagine a world where the pet health professionals got paid for keeping your dog or cat in the state of perfect health? Eradicating disease would be a relatively small feat for a group of individuals with sufficient ingenuity to create the enormously complicated and financially successful disease-care monolith that exists today. Is the motivation to perpetuate the current system greater than their desire to eradicate disease? It would seem so.

RMF – The Solution is Inexpensive and Easy

There is no longer any excuse for dog owners to continue feeding disease-causing commercial food waste to their dogs. It is not difficult to learn how to feed dogs properly. It is not hard work, nor is it expensive or time-consuming.

How much money and time have you spent on vet bills, remedies, supplements and dog food, combined? Add to that the time you’ve spent taking your dog to the vet. The pain and suffering your dog has had to endure. Whatever all that adds up to, the cost of proper feeding will most likely be much less. How much would it be worth to never have to take your dog to the vet again? Except in the rare and unfortunate case of injury. If you think that’s impossible, the industries have hoodwinked you. Industries which profit from the idea that sickness is unavoidable! 

A Different Approach is Needed!

In response to the great awakening that is happening among pet owners, a community of sorts calling itself “holistic” has emerged. People share their “alternative” ideas about how to feed and care for dogs. This is a step in the right direction, obviously. But unfortunately people who still cling to the flawed ideology of veterinary medicine have populated this community. And others who must sell products in order to stay in business. So, they still very often make the same mistakes. When these mistakes lead to illness, they usually assume that lifelong management is their only option. Via RMF, Natural Hygiene offers us a better way: REMOVAL OF CAUSE. This is the ONLY true “holism”. The causes of disease are easily determinable.

How to Prevent and Even Reverse Disease

It may surprise you to learn that there is a very good chance your dog or cat could be healthy and vital for life, even if s/he’s already sick. That’s because the same health-producing conditions that prevent sickness from occurring in the first place can also reverse it once it’s there. Once we remove the causes, disease will resolve in nearly all cases. If they have told you that you have no option but to “manage” your pet’s symptoms, bear in mind that the mega system that profits when animals are sick has trained that person who told you.

Since we hear otherwise every day, it may be hard to believe that sickness is not something that attacks from the outside. Rather, it is something that builds and accumulates from the inside, rather like the pressure inside a volcano.

It is entirely within our control to determine whether our animals get sick.

We need only not CAUSE it, which, it turns out, is quite EASY to do. RMF is for people who want to understand the true needs of their dogs. People willing to abandon the counterproductive belief systems that have created epidemic disease among dogs. By harnessing the power of nature, we can avoid disease entirely.
