And this Little Piggie – Eat Garlic


A word of advise to pig farmers who have pigs with the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus, or those farming with pigs near the areas where the infection has been found. Feed your pigs garlic to help them through this outbreak, without having to resort to killing them. What a tragedy it is to kill so many animals needlessly.

The thing is, we humans have forgotten our instincts, and as such we have also forgotten that animals are much more instinctive than we are. I lived on an acreage and I had about 250 chickens running around free-range. I had tried to grow garlic, but I never could get one to grow because the chickens picked all the cloves out of the ground. I had sheep and I once fed them kelp as a vitamin/mineral supplement. You would think, what do sheep know of kelp, it is an ocean seaweed, but after I had fed the kelp to them they would almost knock me over when I attempted to go into the  barn. It was just that their bodies instinctively seek out the nutrients packed into kelp.

My suggestion would be to give the pigs between 4 to 8 cloves a day depending on their size, as a preventative measure, and higher amounts should they get sick. If you live in an area where the disease is, your options is to kill them, or experiment with giving them garlic to attempt to prevent, or cure the infected animals.  It is totally safe, I know because I use garlic for my own healing and my gut feeling is that you will have no trouble  in feeding it to them.

About pushinback

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen
