Importance Of Medicine In Our Daily Lives

Medicine is considered as one of the most important necessity to all of us. It is derived from the Latin words ars medicina meaning “the art of healing”. It is a branch of the health sciences and is the sector of public life concerned with maintaining or restoring human health through the study, diagnosis, treatment and possible prevention of disease, injury and other damage to a body or mind.

It is both an area of knowledge, a science of body system and their diseases and treatment. This branch of science encompasses treatment by drugs, diet, exercise and other nonsurgical means. It is also used to maintain our health. An agent such as drug is used to treat disease or injury. There are different types of medicine, we have herbal medicine, which came from different kinds of plants, medicines treat in hospital and etc. Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to use of any plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Long practiced outside of conventional medicine, herbalism is becoming more mainstreams as up-to-date analysis and research show their value in the treatment and prevention of disease. Some of us believe in herbal medicines, for it is pure came from plants and no other ingredients. Herbal medicine also uses for cough, fever, toothache and some other diseases that might catch from our environment. Herbalists treat many conditions such as asthma, eczema, premenstrual syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, menopausal symptoms, chronic fatigue, and an irritable bowel syndrome among others. Plants had been used for medicinal purposes long before recorded history. For most herbs, the specific ingredient that causes a therapeutic effect is not known. Whole herbs contain many ingredients and it is likely that they work together to produce the desired medicinal effect

Some medicines may cause problems if you take them with other medicines. This is why it is important to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the medicines you are taking. And some medicines can cause problems, even if you take them correctly. Call your doctor or pharmacist if you think your medicine is making you feel worse. We take medicine to make us feel better when we are sick.

Melted Cheese

When two teams as bad as the Vikings and Packers get together one of two things can happen. The game will either be boring or it could be exciting. Sunday's game started off but but had a dramatic ending.
Vikings kicker Paul Edinger kicked a game winning 56 yard field goal. It was the longest field goal in Vikings history and the second longest field goal to end a game in NFL history.

What an amazing finish for the Vikings and it came against their arch rival, the Green Bay Packers. The Packers took a first half lead of 17-0 into half time but seemed to melt away in the second half.

The Vikings had 38 yards passing in the first half and in typical 2005 fashion made mistake after mistake on both sides of the field. It looked like Favre would put up fantastic numbers and crush the Vikings.

Whatever was done at half time worked for Minnesota. All season I've criticized Tice and the coaching staff for being out trained and being inept. Tice impressed me on Sunday. He obviously said or did the right things during half time and must be given credit.

While the Vikings were impressive and scored on all 5 of their possessions during the second half, Green Bay melted away like Wisconsin cheese on a hot day.

The Vikings took a 20-17 lead near the end of the game but Favre rallied back to lead the Packers down the field for a game tyeing field goal.
Culpepper who was great in the second half marched the Vikings into field goal position with only two seconds left.
It actually was not really field goal possession. It was a 56 yard attempt by Edinger who had missed from half that distance earlier in the season.

Nobody wave Edinger a chance and I viewed the attempt as a mere formality that Edinger would miss the attempt. Looking back all the ingredients for a miracle were in place for Edinger who really needed this kick to give him confidence.

Edinger had more then enough distance and could have probably made a 60 yard field goal the way he kicked that ball through the uprights.
Favre looked on in utter shock. What an amazing site to see. All week long Green Bay Packers fans were licking their chops in anticipation of routing the Vikings.

Well Packers fans this is a 60 minute game. This showed me that there was one team more pathetic then the Vikings. The Green bay Packers definitely looked like melted cheese on Sunday.

Foods Meghan Markle Won’t Be Allowed to Eat While Pregnant

Unpasteurized juices

When fruits and vegetables are peeled, cut, or fresh-squeezed, harmful bacteria that may be on the skin of the produce can spread to the inside, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That includes Toxoplasma, a parasite found on unwashed fruits and vegetables; this parasite can be particularly harmful to moms-to-be and unborn babies. The FDA recommends that pregnant women only drink juices that have been pasteurized or otherwise treated to kill bacteria. Find out how Harry and Meghan’s baby will change the line of succession.

“Remember to thoroughly rinse raw fruits and vegetables under running water before eating or preparing them at home,” the FDA strongly advises. This holds true even when it comes to bananas, oranges, melons, and other fruits with thick skins or rinds: Once you cut into a fruit, anything on the outside can be transferred to the inside.

Too much tea

Since marrying Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan has taken quite nicely to the royal habit of regular tea-drinking. The issue? Tea contains caffeine—an 8-ounce cup contains about 47 mg, which is the same as half a cup of coffee. Although the effects of caffeine on a fetus aren’t clear, the Mayo Clinic recommends limiting intake to under 200 mg a day. Meghan will need to stay under four cuppas a day. Find out the clues you missed that Meghan Markle was pregnant.

The 7 Secrets of Health

Great sages, doctors, and masters of all cultures and all times have identified a few simple keys to health: proper breath; nutrition; inner cleansing; moderate exercise; enough rest; a positive, now-focused outlook, and living in harmony with nature. In my practice as a naturopath and energy healer, I am continuously drawn back to these basic elements of health, yet I still find that very few people really understand how vital they are.

As we achieve wellness and balance in any of the seven key areas, the benefits also spread into the other areas, making our task of achieving total wellness that much easier. When each area of ​​our life and health is brought into wellness, we are raised from just feeling 'well enough' to a level of unprecended health and wellbeing. But even making small improvements in these seven are as of health will deliver benefits, helping us feel stronger and healthier in body, mind and spirit.

Correct Breath

When we do not breathe correctly, we seriously affect our physiological and mental health. We deprive our cells of necessary oxygen, and of the life-force (or prana) that is carried within it. Shallow breathing contributes to the release of histamine, a chemical that causes allergic reactions, promotes inflammation, and contributions to asthma. Lactic acid builds up in the brain, affecting our moods and mental acuity; lymphatic fluids are not pumped through the body, which means that cellular waste can not be properly eliminated.

All this means that poor breathing leads to a build up of toxins and wastes in the body while restricting the body's supply of healing, balancing, energizing life force or prana. This creates a vicious circle of escalating illness, and affects our psychological wellbeing. Correct breathing and regular deep breathing clears the body of pollutants, and also clears and calms the mind.

Inner cleansing

I consider the major cause of disease in our times to be toxic overload, where the body is struggling under a burden of accumulated toxins, and can no longer safely get rid of them with normal detoxification processes.

We are continuously bombarded with toxins in our air, water and soil, our food, and even our homes. When we are healthy, not overly stressed, eat wholesome, fresh foods, and limit our exposure to environmental toxins, our bodies can potentially detoxify themselves naturally. Inner cleansing and elimination processes are continuously at work, clearing our bodies of waste and harmful substances that we have eaten, breathed in, or absorbed through our skin.

On the other hand, a body that can no longer effectively clear toxins due to illness, poor immunity, or toxic overload is being slowly poisoned. That body is like a city under siege! It switches from the normal healing mode to a state of emergency. Normal healing and repair processes are brought to a stop, and everyone (all your cells and organs) is preoccupied with defense. Over time, if your body is not cleared of toxins and allowed to recover, your immune system becomes exhausted, and you are prey to a host of health problems. Now, your body needs your help to detoxify.

So what is the solution? Just by choosing natural products and eating more unprocessed foods, we reduce our toxic load. Aim for balance: more clean whole foods; pure water; enough exercise; deep breathing; and less exposure to harmful substances or chemicals. Remember that otherwise healthy athletes who swim in chlorinated pools often develop an allergy to chlorine, and many bakers develop allergies to chemicals in flour, or to wheat, due to constant exposure.

Good Nutrition

We are always being told to eat healthy foods, but not many of us appreciate the powerful role of food in building and growing health of body and mind. Food is your body's fuel. If the quality or quantity of your food is poor, your body will simply can not have enough fuel to provide the energy you need, or the fuel will be of poor quality.

Nor will your immune system work properly if your foods lack the fiber, nutrients and enzymes needed to support and build health. A strong immune system is your best ally in the quest for lifelong health and resistance to disease. To build and maintain good immunity, you must take in all the nutrients your body needs to fuels its many metabolic activities, to help detoxify and to heal your body, to draw on when under additional stress, to nourish your nervous system and brain, and to maintain a healthy biochemistry.

Good nutrition also helps maintain the right pH needed for metabolic processes such as digestion, circulation of blood, and release of body chemicals. To maintain the correct balance of biochemicals – enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters etc. – your body requires a more alkaline internal environment. Too much acid weakens the immune system, promoting infection and inflammation, and upsetting many metabolic processes that are essential to good health.

Fortunately, what you eat has an intense effect on your body's acid balance. A diet rich in raw or lightly cooked vegetables and fruit is the best way to alkalinise your body. This in turn supports the body's natural detoxification processes, and strengthens your immune system.

Moderate exercise

Aerobic exercise (the kind that active kids and adults get when they play) gets the heart pumping blood into the muscles, tissues and organs, and the toxins flushed out. Stretching helps release accumulated tension and free toxins from the joints. Strength building groups stronger muscles and organs.

Exercise not only strengthens our muscles, heart and lungs; it also ensures that more oxygen-rich blood is pumped to all parts of the body so that every cell is bathed in vital nutrients, and stimulates the release of healing, 'happy' hormones. Our plump cells are rejuvenated, undoing the effects of aging so that we look and feel younger.

Moreover, wastes and toxins are quickly flushed through the body's elimination channels, preventing the harmful buildup of sludge and toxins around our cells and in our tissues. Your lymphatic system, which carries cellular waste and toxins away from our cells, can not push the toxins out without the body is active. This can cause your body to store weight, since fat is an ideal storage place for toxins. Only one hour of moderate exercise a day can keep your body's energy, nutrients, and cleansing processes flowing: that can be as little as a brisk daily walk in the fresh air.

Enough rest

When it is at rest, your body repairs and matches the normal damage and stress caused by everyday living. Without frequent rest, your body can be quickly pushed too far, stressing the immune system, and making you more susceptible to infection, illness and disease.

Sleep is there suddenly strongly important to your health, both physiological and psychological. Even 30 minutes of additional sleep at night can make a huge difference to your mood, your ability to think clearly and to learn, and your body's ability to recover from daily stresses. Recent research shown that starting school even 1 hour later can give school children the sleep they need to significantly improve their school performance.

The amount of sleep needed by any individual can vary, although around 8 hours is usually considered a good average. You can gauge what you need by how you feel. If you are constantly feeling stressed, tired, or irritable, or are forgetful and overly anxious, you may not be getting enough sleep. Add another 30 minutes to your sleep time and note the difference.

You also need sufficient rest in addition to good sleep. How you rest is up to you. Many find deep relaxation exercises very restful and refreshing. A calm stroll along the beach can be restful, as can stopping now and then in a busy day to stretch, or just sitting and breathing in the clean air as you watch the clouds. Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Yoga can be restful as they relax and calm both body and mind, and the smooth motions wash the tired body with fresh energy, oxygen and blood.

Most important is the quality of your rest … and also of your sleep. Built up stress or over-tiredness can cause disturbed, shallow sleep, as can allergies and other health problems. Worrying, negative emotions, feeling overwhelmed, helpless or angry can make it difficult to really rest. You might sit down with a cup of tea, but your distracted mind is not resting, which means that your body is not fully relaxed.

The point is that both your body and mind need breaks through the day, time to let go and relax. If you find this difficult, you may find the sixth health secret especially helpful.

Living in the moment

What do I mean by this? A combination of things that together move us from negativity to a positive attitude and what is often called greater personal effectiveness. When we are present in the moment, we are not tied to the past with its regrets, guilt, and other negative baggage, nor are we distracted by wishful thinking or dreaming about the future. Instead, we are centered in this moment, which enables us to live consciously.

Living in the moment reduces the major causes of stress: worry or fear about the future, or dwelling on past hurts or errors. It frees us to focus more productively on doing what must be done now to get the results we want. It also frees us to appreciate what is already around us, and to give those around us with a lighter more joyful heart. Our life force flows more freely; our health flourishes; it is easier to balance the different parts of our lives and our emotions and to find calm.

A calm person is at peace with himself and the world. A calm mind is able to be fully in the moment. It is the secret of emotional resilience and a keen intellect. When we are able to maintain calm and to return to calm in times of stress, we become more reflective. We are more able to stop before reacting, and to choose our responses based on our own values ​​and ideals instead of feeling pushed to act in this or that way. A calm mind is an awesome source of inner strength and resilience.

Living in harmony with nature

Really, everything you have just read is part of living in harmony with nature. That's because what is good for nature is also good for us. We are, like it or not, a part of nature, and our bodies are designed to live and maintain health through continuous beneficial interaction with our environment. If our environment is not conductive to health and wellbeing, we are fighting a constant uphill battle to maintain health and recover from everyday stresses and wear on the body.

Keep in mind that illnesses and allergies are often a product of the interaction between your body-mind and your environment. Your health will depend to a great extent on whether you create and maintain a health-supporting environment.

It can help to see yourself as the energy body that you are, living in a world of energy. In some areas, you are the positive pole, in others, the negative. If you try to be all of one or the other – all giving or all taking – you throw the relationship between you and nature (including those around you) completely out of balance. The result? Blocked or damaged energy, distress, and poor health.

There is a huge amount of information out there on living a more natural life. Some of it is a bit extreme, but lots of it can be easily applied and adapted to your life.

In the long run, the secret of living in harmony with nature is balance between what you give to the world and what you take from it, between what you take into your body and what you take out of it, and moderation in all things. Balance is the key.

Alta Adams Chef Wants to Make Honest California Soul Food for LA

Chef Keith Corbin fires up the stove at Alta Adams. Raw rice, soon to be the bed for a helping of slow-braised oxtails, starts to sizzle in a cast iron pan. Dressed in a black chef’s coat and already sweaty on his brow, Corbin looks focused. The restaurant, which opened last week in the neighborhood of West Adams, is his first gig as an executive chef. Here, he hopes to display his personalized style of soul food, using California ingredients and a lighter touch with fats and oils. But Alta Adams has plenty of battles to address, from issues of gentrification to finding the right audience in a stretch of LA that doesn’t have much in the way of sit-down dining.

Corbin, 37, is no stranger to the kitchen, but his path to Alta Adams has hardly been a conventional one. The Watts native learned to cook from his grandmother, who raised him from an early age. They lived in South LA’s housing projects, a place Corbin clearly recalls with love. There wasn’t always a lot in the kitchen cupboards but they would share whatever they had.

“My granny made big pots of food every night and the door stayed open,” he said. “She had five grandkids in the house with her. She cooked for them, for the kids outside, for the community.”

Corbin liked feeding his siblings and anyone else nearby who was hungry. Even when he fell into trouble, the kitchen was his safety net. Corbin spent seven years in prison but cooked nearly the entire time. He says his creativity as a chef likely stems from those non-professional years, preparing meals with just a few ingredients and making the best of it.

Corbin went back home to Watts when he was released from prison. He got a job at an oil refinery, but after his employers did a background check they let him go. He was walking around his neighborhood a week and a half later when he spotted a job posting for Locol, Daniel Patterson and Roy Choi’s groundbreaking fast food restaurant. Corbin worked in the kitchen before moving into a leadership role, where his skill was visible from the start.

Patterson recalls, “During that time, when everything was chaotic, what was very clear was that Keith had a passion for cooking, a great palate, and a lot of drive. Those things have carried him throughout his life. And they are things we look for in a chef.”

Patterson, a San Francisco chef who’s earned accolades and recognition for his Bay Area restaurants, gave Corbin a chance to learn from more established kitchens. Corbin helped open Locol in Oakland while interning at Patterson’s fine dining establishment Coi in San Francisco and also at Reem Assil’s Dyafa restaurant in Oakland, honing what Corbin would eventually dub “California soul food.”

Corbin’s grandmother’s cooking inspired many of Alta Adams’s early dishes. For example, the oxtail meat and potato burritos Corbin ate as a kid were seasoned with dry spices like garlic salt and onion powder. The Alta version uses four hour braised oxtails in a miso and soy broth. Black-eyed pea fritters replace traditional cornflour hushpuppies, pairing them with a spicy herb sauce of serrano peppers, cilantro, parsley, and garlic. Corbin candies yams with brown butter, almond milk, and less sugar than usual.

“We are taking something you’re used to and making it unique, making it better. It’s like N.W.A.,” Corbin chuckles. “We always had hip hop in New York, but then N.W.A. came out and it was a smash. They took hip hop and made it West Coast. They changed the beat, they changed the way it was delivered. That’s what I want to do with this: California cuisine, California soul.”

It feels appropriate to wonder if Alta, even with the best of intentions, will thrive in West Adams. Though Patterson and Roy Choi’s Locol, which closed in Watts in August, and Alta are very different restaurants, similar questions arise from their stories. Locol is a fast food restaurant intent on bringing reasonably-priced, quality, made-from-scratch fare to underserved communities. But Locol is no longer open to the public anymore (they still do catering in Watts), perhaps in part because the customer base couldn’t make it a profitable enterprise. Will locals feel at home at Alta and Adams Coffee Shop, its adjoining casual space? One also wonders if the prices ring reasonable in a neighborhood where the median annual household income hovers around $40,000. Or if Angelenos living in other neighborhoods will make the drive to West Adams like they do to Downtown’s Arts District.

Corbin just works to refine what they can control. He thinks the location is just right. He’s cooking his version of soul food in a community that, to him, feels similar to Watts. The main thoroughfare — in this case, Adams Boulevard — is surrounded by homes full of people cooking, and there’s a limited number of places to eat out. And in terms of more sit-down restaurants with table service, there’s only the longtime Creole restaurant Harold and Belle’s, two miles away on Jefferson Boulevard. It’s a niche that Corbin hopes to build in West Adams, on his own terms, and in a way that welcomes everyone.

“This is the perfect time for us to come in and connect with the community that’s here right now,” he says. Go to any neighborhood association meeting in the area and learn quickly that gentrification is an ugly word for many residents. And while they take pride in their corner of Los Angeles, the locals also want more access to quality food, to gathering places, to family-friendly resources. But they want those things to come without pushing anyone out.

Corbin and Patterson realize how important this first impression is. At Adams Coffee Shop, drip coffee costs $2. Lunch dishes include an $8 cold fried chicken salad sandwich, $9 roasted turkey muffuletta, and $11 sprouted grain bowl.

At Alta Adams, the menu allows guests to go high or low in terms of price. Side dishes cost $6 each, and includes collard greens, glazed carrots, candied yams, mac and cheese, long-cooked green beans, mashed potatoes, or beans and rice. Entrees top out with a $23 plate of oxtails and rice and or $28 smothered hanger steak, both of which can be shared. A grilled whole fish sells at market price.

Patterson urges guests to think beyond price, too. “We want to create a space that is super accessible,” he says. “The cuisine and the vibe speaks to the history of here. What we’re also focused on is: Can we provide great jobs? Can we pay people living wages? Can we be a place that creates opportunity in all kinds of ways? But as you know, if you’re going to pay people well, you can’t then charge a little bit. So then you have to have a conversation about the value of food, and that takes you into this big fabric of things.”

It’s no simple thing to be something to everyone in that fabric. But it seems that some locals share Corbin and Patterson’s optimism. Lillie Mae Briggs, 72, lives a few blocks from Alta. She’s retired and on a fixed income, but the thought of a soul food spot she can walk to thrills her. Briggs is originally from Beaumont, Texas, but relocated to Los Angeles when she was 21. Even a glass of iced tea or a slice of coconut cake will lure her in, she says.

“Once you go to a place, if they make something that’s got a taste you really like, you’ll find the money to treat yourself,” Briggs remarks. “Because in this life, you only live once. So you have to have some sort of enjoyment.”

Hannibal Tabu, project manager by day and comic book writer by night, is a slightly tougher sell, mostly because he has a go-to soul food spot already with Chef Marilyn’s less than two miles away on Crenshaw Boulevard. But the thought of soul food prepared in a healthier way by a local black chef piques his interest. “I’m 45 now, so I have to take better care of myself,” says Tabu. “I can’t do Roscoe’s every week like I used to.”

He thinks about the politics of spending, too. Tabu is more than willing to drive out of the neighborhood if it means providing his daughters, ages 8 and 14, a healthier meal, or if it means supporting a black business. He says his added effort is an example of the black tax, the axiom that black people must work harder to access or achieve the same things as their white counterparts.

Tabu also represents the family demographic of the area. In the 90016 zip code, which is where Alta sits, about 31 percent of homes have children under the age of 18. Nicole Lemoine, 37, is a stylist, ceramicist, model, actor, and mother who’s been in the area since 2007. She checks out anything new in the neighborhood with her three-year-old son, and thinks that creating a welcoming and equitable space is crucial to a business’s success.

“There are some really great people who have lived here for ages, and also many who are moving in that want to experience community,” she says. “If inclusion is taken into consideration within the business model, whether it be in design or in price, everyone will see it as a win.”

Corbin and Patterson welcome the challenge of being the new kids on the block. They’ve already fielded locals’ concerns, from noise on the patio to parking and accessible prices. They’ve tested and tweaked the food they think will please their customers. Only time will tell the rest.

“We can’t do anything about how we’re perceived,” says Patterson. “What we can do is be honest with ourselves, do the best work we can do, and be really kind to each other and the people who come in. That’s what we’re promising.”

Corbin promises to serve honest food in an inviting atmosphere. He hopes guests will chat with him over the bar, and he’ll likely watch as they take their first bite of a dish, because that’s his favorite moment.

“For me, it’s always gonna be about the people,” he said. “Energy reflects energy. If you’re coming with love, you’ll be met with love.”

Alta Adams opened October 11 in West Adams with hours from 5 to 10 p.m. daily, and until 10:30 p.m. on weekends. The coffee shop is open daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

What RAW Food Does my Pack Like Best? Pack Mukbang Smorgasbord Edition (Pack-Bang)

What RAW food does my pack like best? In this video we find out… Pack Mukbang Smorgasbord Edition (Pack-Bang).

Dogs seen in this video are my two 15 week Renascence Bulldogge puppies Rekkr and Magi, Blue Bay Shepherd Kurgan, German Shepherd Lobo and my Lycan Shepherd Ulu. This IS NOT what a typical RAW meal looks like for them. You can find videos of that in me RAW food playlist linked below. I use these groups feedings to develop and maintain a healthy pack hierarchy.

“I’m just some guy on YouTube.” I am not a “professional” dog trainer nor K9 nutritionist and I am not representing myself as one. I am here just showing what ‘I do’ and what ‘works for me’ as a long time Animal Warden, breeder and dog rescuer and I explain while doing it why I do it this way. 🙂

* Before asking me any feeding questions in the comments (OR ON INSTAGRAM) look through the several links I am providing below. 99.9% of any RAW feeding questions you have for me will be answered expertly in those links in more detail than I can provide in the video comments. 🙂

*To answer a question I know I will get in the comments:

* Yes, it’s OK to feed your dogs ‘RAW’ bones. It’s only cooked bone you should never feed your dogs – Cooking the bone makes it undigested, brittle and prone to causing obstruction of the g-track and a perforated bowel. Canines are meant to digest raw bones and have been doing it for millions of years. Don’t take my word for it though, I’m just some guy on YouTube… lol. Do your research. I’ll provide some links down below if you’d like to do that. I’ve been feeding this way for over 20 years with great results.

*Muk-bang or mukbang is an online broadcast in which a host eats large quantities of food, while interacting with their audience. Usually done through a webcast.

* I feed my dogs the B.A.R.F. Diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods). Here are a couple of books on the B.A.R.F. diet I recommend by DVM Ian Billinghurst.

The Black and tan and chocolate and tan coat colors seen in my bloodline and now in several OEBs that have my dogs mixed into them come from a black and tan Sorrel line pitbull I used when creating my dog (I used an Old Family Red Nose pits too). 🙂

This one is a no brainer. The less you wash your hands, the greater the opportunity for bacteria to pile up on them. As a result, you’re exposing yourself to more illnesses, which means one is bound to weasel its way into your body and make you sick. Spending a whole 20 seconds properly washing your hands might not seem exciting, but it can do a lot to protect your body in the long run.

How to Create a Healthy Diet Plan for Your Pet Bird

Even though they have become quite common, birds are still considered to be exotic pets. This is the reason why many owners are not sure about the right way in which to feed them. Perhaps the biggest mistake is to offer only seeds as they do not offer the full spectrum of nutrients required by these lovely creatures. Find out how to feed your pet bird properly so that it is healthy and happy.

Food Diversity

Just like you, your pet requires a diverse and balanced diet. You can feed it some seeds, but they should form only a portion of its diet. The bird pallets are an excellent choice of food to give to your pet on a daily basis. They contain all the nutrients which birds require to be healthy. Just make sure that you pick a natural product which does not contain artificial additives, preservatives or colourings.

Your pet will certainly love to eat vegetables and fruits. They are excellent sources of carbs, fibre and vitamins and minerals. The vegetables and fruits which birds love the most include carrots, turnips, radishes, broccoli, corn, apples, bananas, berries, pineapple, cherries and mango. It is best if you feed your pet with fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits to achieve maximum diversity.

Other foods which you can include in the diet to make it diverse are raw almonds, kidney beans and lentils. These are great sources of healthy protein and healthy fat. Sprouted seeds, grains, nuts and legumes are great delicacies for birds in addition to being packed with nutrients. You can readily sprout dormant seeds and legumes at home by wrapping them a moist cotton ball and leaving them in a jar.


Pet birds do not have set meal times, but it is best if you provide fresh food in the morning and in the evening. One important thing to know is that in nature these animals actually work for their food. They spend about a third of the day foraging. That is why you will do a great favour to your pet if you place a foraging feeder in the cage. That way, you will give it both physical and mental stimulation.


You should never leave food in the cage for more than a day as it may get heavily contaminated with droppings or get spoiled. It is never wise to pour large amounts of feed and then forget about feeding your pet for weeks. You should also wash all feeders and dishes with warm water and detergent every day or every other day.

You now know how to feed your pet bird in the best possible way.
