Best Natural Antihistamine For Dogs

The best natural antihistamine for dogs can be found in the Water Cures protocol. It consists of water and sodium chloride. More specifically, unprocessed sea salt that has the extra minerals not found in table salt.

Antihistamine for Dogs: What is Antihistamine

Histamine is a substance released in the cells of humans and animals. It is released when there is injury, allergic reaction, inflammation or exposure to chemicals. Histamine helps with the electrical transmission between nerves. It plays a role in the immune response.

The most important thing to know, histamine helps protect us. In the case of our fury pets, it helps balance salt, potassium and water. When exposed to something unhealthy for them (or us), the body overproduces histamine. When this happens, you will notice your pet has problems. It could be skin problems or it could be pain.

Antihistamines stop the action of histamine in the receptors, where the cells receive the histamine. They do not fix the cause of the release of histamine. They only block the cells from receiving the histamine. They do not heal. What if there was a better way. What if there was a natural way?

Treating the Cause Not the Symptom

Instead of treating the symptom (giving antihistamine) what would happen if we treated the cause of discomfort in our four legged friend? We would eliminate the discomfort. We would help with the healing process.

By providing salt and water for our pets, we are giving them the nutrients to allow them to balance their bodies and heal.

The Natural Antihistamine For Dogs: Salt and Water

Antihistamines chemically try to block the action of histamine. Histamine is released because something is happening within the body that needs to be fixed. Antihistamines mask the effects of something gone wrong inside the body of our pets.

One of the primary functions of histamine is management of water.

Since histamine manages water, why would we want to interfere with it? Would it now be better to help it.

Water and salt provide the best natural antihistamine known to man or dog. The water is transported into the innermost parts of the body by the salt. We need salt to live. So do our dogs and cats.

Isn't Salt Dangerous for Dogs?

Numerous health and vet sites say salt is dangerous for dogs. Yet the same doctors know that life is dependent on salt. How do we balance the two views.

The Merk Manual Says: "Salt poisoning has been reported in virtually all species of animals... ...salt poisoning has historically been more common in swine (the most sensitive species)...cattle and poultry, there are increasing reports of adverse effects in dogs from acute excess salt consumption."

Note: Many are aware that cows and horses have salt licks. They need salt to live, more than they get from foods. Yet too much is dangerous. The same is true of dogs. Perhaps you have noticed some dogs lick certain peoples skin. Why? Often because of the salt.

The health issue to be concerned about is not salt. The issue is too much salt.

How Much is Too Much Salt or Dogs?

To provide a general idea, according to the Merck Manual 3/4 teaspoon of salt at one time would be too much for a 100 lb dog.

A Schnauzer weighs 30 - 45 pounds (14 - 20 kg). A German Shepherds weigh 49–88 lb (22–40 kg). Respective amounts of salt would be 1/4 tsp for a small dog and 1/2 tsp for a medium sized dog.

Note that the 'too much' is an 'at one time' amount.

1/4 teaspoon of salt = 500 milligrams of sodium 1/2 teaspoon of salt = 1,000 milligrams of sodium 3/4 teaspoon of salt = 1,500 milligrams of sodium

With salt, dogs can tolerate small amounts in water. Remember, salt on food is not the same as salt in water.

Sea water can have in excess of 2 tablespoons of salt in a quart. This is way too much and why dogs will get sick drinking sea water. We recommend having at least 2 bowls, one without salt and one with up to 3/4 teaspoon for large dogs, less for smaller dogs.

The dogs will drink what they need. Watch which bowl your dogs drink from. Adjust the salt as you see what they drink. Initially they may drink the larger amount. Then when they drink less, adjust the level of added salt down to what they prefer.

My Experience: A good friend tried the WaterCures Pet Protocol on Timmy. He was a small terrier mix. At 15 years old, he was showing his age. He could no longer jump on the couch or chair. Paco, his 2 year old Chihuahua friend and companion was always wanting to play. On starting the water and salt as a natural antihistamine for dogs, Timmy perked up dramatically. Once again able to jump on the couch and chairs, he would also be found playing with Paco. The amazing thing, this was a 15 year old dog.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
