A fully natural diet of suitable wholesome foods, exercise, relaxation, sunlight, fresh air, pure water and a positive atmosphere are the minimum requirements.
An obstacle to health can be thought of as anything in the environment that is not species appropriate or anything that otherwise blocks their physiological ability to attain health. If there are chemical, mechanical or emotional obstacles to healing these should be removed by appropriate techniques. Chemical obstacles may consist of drugs, unsuitable foods or environmental toxins. Mechanical obstacles may be structural by nature such as chiropractic subluxations. Emotional obstacles may be unhealed past trauma's expressed as fear or aggression.
First any obstacles to your animals good health must be identified, second they must be removed or corrected in a way that will allow the animals self-healing function to operate at peak efficiency. If your car has some water in the gas tank it's not going to function very well. This will impede acceleration and cause further damage over time. Remove the water and the vehicle will return to good running condition.
It is possible to travel down the path to health...full steam ahead once the obstacles have been removed. But the longer you wait to remove those obstacles the more irreparable damage will have been done.
