Pierre@ D OXI²


  1. Introduction

This OXI² Pre-Wash was developed and tested to remove hardened stains and smells caused by urine on carpets. Mammalian excretions such as blood, faeces, urine etc. consist of a combination of ammonia, bacteria, hormones, and uric acid.

As the urine breaks down, the ammonia concentration increases and sulphur-containing organic chemical substances known as mercaptans are then released.

  1. The chemical structure of Urea

The chemical structure of urea is written as (NH2)2CO. This means that two nitrogen-containing, ammonia-derived molecules are joined to a carbon molecule that has a double bond to an oxygen molecule.

  1. Contents

Dog urine contains urea, creatine, uric acid, carbohydrates, enzymes, fatty acids, hormones, sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, calcium and ammonia.

  1. Animal-related marks and stenches

When a dog smells another dog’s urine, it can detect the hormones, such as estrogen or testosterone that is present in the urine. That stimulates their reaction to mark or remark the area.

DO NOT CLEAN such affected areas with products containing ammonia. For urine turns as explained above, into ammonia, react then on a molecular level to the chemical structure, worsening the urine stench as it releases it in a more concentrated form.

For the above reasons, the Pierre @ Dieregesondheid OXI² PRE -WASH stain remover was developed, whereby it uses oxygen to remove and break the particles down.

Spirocerca Lupi

SPIROCERCA LUPI:  Die “stille moordenaar”

 Spirocercosis word die toestand genoem wat deur die wurm “Spirocerca lupi” veroorsaak word.  Hierdie wurm lewe in die nodules van die oesophagus (ook genoem die “gullet”) wat ‘n gedeelte is van die hond se spysverteringstelsel, ‘n gedeelte tussen die maag en die mond.

Nodules is klein gewassies wat natuurlik in die liggaam voorkom.  Hierdie wurms kan tot 2 jaar lank oorleef in hierdie gewassies, waar hul eiers lê en dit in klein openings van die gewas uitskei, waar dit in ‘n hond se mismonster vasgestel kan word.

Miskruiers (die “Coprophagous beetle”) wat so ‘n belangrike funksie in die Natuur speel, neem hierdie Spirocerca eiers in met die mis wat hul verwerk.  Die eiers ontwikkel in die miskruier na ‘n L1 stadium (wat die eerste larwe stadium is).  Honde word op hierdie metode besmet wanneer hul die miskruiers eet.  Hierdie miskruiers word gemiddeld 6mm groot.  Dit is NIE die wonderlike groot miskruiers wat ons in die algemeen ken nie.


 Nadat die hond die miskruier geëet het, ontwikkel die wurm in die maag van die hond.  Hierdie wurm boor dan deur die maagwand, veroorsaak enorme pyn en ongemak in die maag en beweeg na bloedvate rondom die maag van die dier.

Hierdie wurmlarwes migreer opwaarts binne die wande van die bloedvate, waar hul binne weke deurbeweeg om by die aorta, die hoofslagaar wat die hart verlaat, uitkom.  Hier doen hul enorme skade omdat hul die wande van die aorta verswak en daardeur ‘n aneurisme veroorsaak.

Jong volwasse wurms, wat gewoonlik in stadia L3 en L4 is, migreer dan direk na die slukderm (die “oesophagus”), wat baie naby aan die aorta lê.  Hierdie wurms kan ook na die rugstring toe migreer.  Binne die slukderm vorm hierdie wurms nodules binne die slukderm se wande, waar hul eiers lê en hul lewensiklus van voor af begin.


 Simptome en tekens is nie baie duidelik en spesifiek nie omdat die wurmlarwe migreer deur die liggaam se wande en ook vatplek kry in nie-funksionele nodules wat in die liggaam voorkom. Veroorsaak gewigsverlies, naar word en ook braking (“retching”), met ander woorde die aksie om op te gooi sonder om te vomeer.

Hierdie nodules kan ook in kanker omskakel.  Abnormale migrasie van die wurm kan ook verlamming en neurologiese versteurings veroorsaak.  In laat stadiums kan daar ook n verdikking in die voorbene wees.

Skielike sterftes kan voorkom omdat die jong wurms skielike skade aan die aorta en daardeur aneurismes veroorsaak.  Omdat die skade wat hierdie wurm veroorsaak permanent is, kan skielike sterftes aan die aorta steeds gebeur nadat die wurm van die dier se liggaam verwyder is.  Dit is egter skaars omdat die Literatuur bewys dat dit eerder in die vroeë migrerende stadiums gebeur.

Spirocerca Lupi is bekend as die “Laksman”, die “Sniper” of “Silent killer” omdat daar baie min uiterlike tekens is dat die hond siek is.

Volwasse “Spirocerca lupi” is helder rooi wurms – die manlike wurms is sowat 40mm lank en die wyfies is sowat 70mm lank.  Dit het ‘n baie komplekse lewensiklus, wat ‘n finale stadia, ‘n intermediêre en dan ‘n parateniese stadia in ‘n gasheer het.  ‘n Parateniese gasheer is een waar geen ontwikkeling – of geen verdere ontwikkeling – plaasvind nie.

Die finale gasheer van hierdie wurmparasiet is die hond.  Die intermediêre gasheer is byvoorbeeld die miskruier.  Parateniese gashere sluit ‘n verskeidenheid van lewende organismes in.  Hierdie organismes dra by tot die verspreiding van die wurm.  Paddas eet die miskruiers, verskeie akkedissoorte, verskeie voëlsoorte, rotte en muise – alles organismes wat honde vang, eet en jaag.  Honde word dus deur hierdie roete geinfekteer wanneer hul hierdie organismes eet.


 Wurmmiddels wat fokus om die wurm dood te maak in sy larwe stadia, asook binne-in die nodules, is die beste wat die wetenskap tans het.  Wanneer kanker ontstaan het, is die behandeling heel anders.

Dit is ‘n geval waar jou veearts ‘n belangrike rol speel om hierdie dodelike wurm te behandel met spesialis behandeling – onthou altyd voorkoming is beter as beheer.  Milbemax en Advocate Spot-on is nou geregistreer om hierdie wurm te verhoed met gereelde maandelikse behandeling (http://www.aloevets.co.za/spirocerca.html).  Jou veearts mag moontlik behandel met ‘n Ivomec of Dormectin inspuiting na diagnose van besmetting om die larwe en volwasse wurms te vernietig.

Probiotic Strains and Their Benefits

  1. Lactobacillus plantarum
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
    • Cold and flu
    • Other immune system deficiencies

This bacterium helps you fight against getting sick by defending your system from invading viruses, moulds, toxins, etc.


  1. Lactobacillus rhamnosus
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
    • Diarrhea
    • Lactose intolerance
    • Urinary tract infections
    • Other intestinal tract illnesses including stomach ulcers.

This strain of probiotic is known for its ability to survive through the harsh gastric acid and bile of the stomach – to make it through to the intestine and compete against bad bacteria.

It enhances the strength of your immune system by stimulating mucous production, inhibiting the growth of intestinal pathogens, and reducing inflammation in the intestines.


  1. Bifidobacterium bifidum
    • Constipation
    • Allergy symptoms
    • Digestive issues
    • Lactose intolerance

In addition to keeping your colon healthy and increasing your ability to absorb important nutrients, BB also reduces intestinal inflammation and competes with pathogens for adhesion to the intestinal cells to help make your immune system stronger. This is one of the four good bacteria species typically found in infants.


  1. Bifidobacterium infantis
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
    • Gastroenteritis
    • Defends against pathogens such as Salmonella

A probiotic bacterium common in breast-fed infants, but which can also be found in teens and adults. It is known to successfully survive the trip through the stomach acids and bile and adhere to the intestinal tissues where it produces acetic acid and bacterocinlike substances, and some strains even produce B-vitamins such as thiamine, nicotinic acid, and folate. This is one of the four good bacteria species typically found in infants.


  1. Bidifobacterium longum
    • Ulcerative colitis
    • Intestinal inflammation
    • Vaginal flora balance
    • Constipation
    • Crohn’s disease
    • High cholesterol
    • Colon cancer

Like most strains, they are still discovering all the positive benefits of this bacteria. They do know that it will strengthen your immune system, improve your overall gut health, and can help with re-establishing beneficial vaginal flora.

Studies have led researchers to believe that B. longum may minimize the effects of or prevent a full range of other ailments and diseases.


  1. Lactobacillus reuteri
    • Eczema
    • Colic
    • Diarrhea
    • Rotavirus
    • Workplace sicknesses
    • Dental health issues
    • Female Urogenital Tract Infections
    • Constipation

These bacteria produce a unique broad-spectrum antibiotic substance called reuterin, which has been found to inhibit the growth of some harmful bacteria, along with yeasts, fungi, and protozoa, while keeping normal gut flora intact. In addition, reuterin has also been shown to suppress infections related to H. pylori (linked to peptic ulcers and gastric cancer). It is found naturally in some milk and meat products.


  1. Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Acute, infectious diarrhea
  • Vaginal infections
  • Urinary tract infections

One of the most popular lactic bacteria, Lacidophilus is commonly used in foods such as yogurt and other dairy products. It works very well in combination with other probiotics to reduce the toxic effects of mould and yeast growth, and can prevent parasite growth in your intestinal tract.


  1. Lactobacillus casei
  • Constipation
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Diarrhea

Casei occurs naturally in both your mouth and intestines, and helps support a healthy immune system. It can also reduce the rate and risk of bacterial infections. It has also been administered safely and with positive results to critically ill children suffering from diarrhea.


9. Lactobacillus helveticus

  • Bone mineral density
  • Blood pressure
  • Improved sleep
  • Stress relief
  • Calcium absorption
  • Diarrhea
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Allergies Found in many cheeses.

This lactic acid producing bacteria boasts a variety of health benefits, ranging from stimulating the immune and digestive systems to increasing bone density in post-menopausal women, to reducing arterial stiffness and blood pressure. It can also improve health by increasing the bioavailability of the nutrients in the body.


  1. Lactobacillus salivarius
  • Gum sensitivity
  • Plaque
  • Tooth and gum health
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Ulcers

In addition to the wide range of proven dental health benefits, L. salivarius is currently being tested and is believed to have the potential to improve immune system responses to colitis and septic shock.


  1. Pediococcus acidilactici
  • Stress relief
  • Digestive issues
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Multiple Sclerosis relief

This bacterium can balance the bacteria in your gut to enhance your overall health and promote a healthier inflammatory response in the intestines. It can reduce and prevent unhealthy bacteria and parasites—like salmonella and E. coli from entering your intestinal tract. It is even believed that it can provide a supportive role in patients who are suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.


  1. Streptococcus thermophilus
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Colic
  • Digestive issues
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Diarrhea
  • Dermatitis
  • Ulcers

One of the two original strains used to make yogurt, this probiotic is still one of the most effective strains for boosting your immune system and improving your digestive health. It is currently being tested for limitless applications, especially for treating the causes and symptoms of cancer.

Blommetjie Mieks Proewe

Pierre@Dieregesondheid Blommetjie Mieks

Die produk is tans onder verdere toetsing by Toetslaboratoriums. Dit sal met die resultate aansoek doen vir bykomende registrasies in terme van Wet 36 van 1947 by die nodige owerhede.

In verskeie lande soos Australië en Swede is die aktief heeltemal vrygestel van enige Registrasies van hul owerhede.


Volledige name en Literatuurverwysings wat hierdie produk se onderbou demonstreer is, sal met registrasie omslagtig beskrywe word.

  1. Doel van die Produk

Om ‘n natuurlike produk te gebruik wat die laagste moontlike gevaar tot moontlike vergiftiging het het vir mens en dier. Die aktief moet natuurlik wees. Versoenbaar met die Natuur, grond en die verbruiker.

Foto-eienaar onbekend.



  • Die aktief wat gevind is, het baie lang veiligheidsrekord van beproefde veiligheid teenoor mens en dier.
  • Dit word wêreldwyd gereken as een van die produkte wat die veiligste is van natuurlike produkte in die Klas: Huishoudelike Pestisiedes.
  • Sou dit per abuis ingeneem word, metaboliseer dit vinnig in die warmbloedige liggaam met min tot geen skadelike nagevolge nie.
  • Toestresultate het bevind dat die aktief se toksiese impak 4000 keer laer is vir ‘n rot, as wat dit vir n huisvlieg sou wees.
  • In die toetse kon rotte nie vergiftig word of enige kliniese tekens toon van vergiftiging, of enige nagevolge daarvan toon in die lewer en of mistoetse nie.


  1. Produk moet baie lae weerstandigheid teen die aktief toon

Die aktief of doodmaakmolekule wat geselekteer is, het weens sy kort nawerking ‘n baie lae weerstandsrekord by insekte. Boonop is sy natuurlike molekulêre struktuur so kompleks dat weerstandigheid nie ‘n wesenlike probleem kan word nie.

  • Weerstandigheid teen die doodmaakmiddel en aktiewe van insektisiedes, word algemeen aangeteken in die Literatuur. Insektisiedes is vir sespootige diere  (Korrekte uitdrukking is 3 paar pote) soos vlieë, kakkerlakke, kop en pubiese luise, miere, muggies, vrugtevlieë en vele ander peste op plante.
  • Daar is ook in die landbou wye weerstandigheid aangeteken teen beheermiddels vir bosluise, wat weer ‘n agtpootige dier is. Die aktief moet ook hier suksesvolle nawerking toon.
  • Die produk moet veilig vir mens en dier, teen enige huishoudelike pes gebruik kan word.


  1. Kermerke van die aktief 
  • Breë spektrum: Die aktief bestaan uit ‘n groep molekulêre verbindings (bekend as esters) en het ‘n wye spektrum van doodmakende aktiwiteit op insekte as meeste ander produkte wat net ‘n enkele aktief het.
  • Die produk het ses (6) esters in sy natuurlik samestelling. Elke een van hierdie esters het ‘n doodmaak of ontwrigtingseffek op die teiken-insek. Dit beteken dat die produk die insek op 6 verskillende maniere kan doodmaak of ontwrig.
  • Esters ontwrig die sentrale senustelsel van kruipende en vlieënde insekte, deur hul normale senuaktiwiteite disfunksioneel te maak en te laat faal om sy natuurlike gedrag te openbaar. Soos om te kan hardloop of weg te vlieg. Hoër aktiwiteite stel die insek ook bloot aan meer van die aktief.
  • Vinnige werking: Die produk val die senustelsel van die insek aan en distort die normale senufunksies van die insek. Dit ontwrig sy normale lewensfunksies of maak die insek dood. Dit het nie ‘n onmiddelike effek op insekeiers of selfs larwes nie, weens die onaktiwiteit daarvan.
  • Omgewingsveilig: Die aktief word deur sonlig en ultravioletstrale afgebreek met geen residu nie.
  • Vrugte en groente-oeste: Daar is geen tydperkperk van onttrekking of interval nodig met die saamgestelde aktief nie. Voedsel kan onmiddelik gebruik word.
  • Alhoewel die produk ‘n aangename reuk het vir mense, het dit naas sy relatief vinnige doodmaak aksie, ‘n walgingsfaktor vir insekte. Hul hou nie van die reuk van die produk nie en wil dit vermy.
  • Dit kan veilig aangewend word op mens en dier waar vlieë hinder en pla, muskiete aktief is en ander skadelike insekte verkieslik die pad laat vat. Kan dus aangewend word vir jagters, veldbesoeke, babas, en troeteldiere.
  • Insekte soos miere word nie deur insektisiedes gewalg nie. Dit sal gewoonlik deur die produk loop. Hul neem gewoonlik die aktief met hul saam nes toe en roei oor tyd die hele nes en koningin met die bewegings uit. 
  • Veilig vir gebruike in Skole, Hospitale, Gastehuise, Hotelle, Kombuise en Ouetehuise: Die aktief laat geen skade en residu wat onveilig is vir mense nie.
  1. Reaksie by muskiete

By wyfiemuskiete veroorsaak die aktief en reuk daarvan abnormale gedrag. Verhoed dat hul hul natuurlike instink volg om ‘n bloedmaal by ‘n gasheer te soek en te neem. By hoër konsentrasies van die aktief verloor hul in totaliteit hul normale gedragspatrone.

Dit beteken ook dat hul hul skuilplekke verlaat van veiligheid en blootgestel kan word aan hoë dosisse van die aktief.

  1. Colostrum and gastric digestion
  • Colostrum is largely protein – how does it survive the adult gastro-intestinal tract without being digested?
  • Both Kelly 12 and Roos 13 have demonstrated that a portion of the antibodies do survive the gastro-intestinal tract, can be measured in the faecal stool and can be shown to still be active. In the case of Kelly, they demonstrated that 4% of the total immunoglobulin was recovered in the stool and that it was still active against Clostridium difficile while Roos demonstrated that around 19% of the total immunoglobulin ingested survived.
  1. Summary of Clinicals

Scientific research in to the benefits of colostrum, particularly with adults, is increasing our knowledge and understanding of the effectiveness, on the adult intestinal tract, of this natural substance and how colostrum can be co-administered with conventional pharmaceuticals to mitigate the side effects of common drugs 2,3,9.

The research and clinical studies help us to understand how colostrum, when taken regularly, acts as a preventive from some common ailments such as upper respiratory tract infections, influenza and pathogenic associated diarrhoea 2,7,8,9,10.

  • Colostrum has been the subject of numerous clinical studies showing efficacy in:
  • Mitigating side effects of NSAIDS
  • Prevention of upper respiratory tract infections
  • Prevention of diarrhoea
  • More effective than flu vaccine in preventing influenza
  • In addition, the evidence for colostral components for AIDS, auto-immune diseases, stem cell proliferation and activation, regenerative medicine and anti-ageing is constantly being published.
  1. COLOSTRUM has been shown in clinical studies to;
  • Reduce the incidence of influenza episodes by more than 3 times when compared flu vaccine10;
  • Protect against side effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)3
  • as a novel treatment for ulcerative distal colitis 6
  • for the treatment of diarrhoeal diseases 7
  • and recurrent diarrhoea associated with antibiotic treatment and overuse9
  • Reduce the incidence of upper respiratory tract infections in healthy children and adults 8,9.
  1. Diarrhoea and colostrum

The PRIDE study, conducted in India investigated the effect of a daily dose of colostrum on 605 children with recurrent episodes of diarrhoea or upper respiratory tract infections (URTI’s). Respiratory disease in children and old people is a common and major cause of morbidity. Diarrhoea is also a major cause of death in children under 5 in developing countries with recurrent diarrhoea affecting approximately 20% of this population.

  1. Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
  • Acute URTI’s and recurrent diarrhoea present the physician or paediatrician with complex treatment issues. The most successful treatment being the use of antibiotics to remove the infections. However, the over prescription of antibiotics can lead to other and more significant problems within communities, such as antibiotic resistance.
  • The results of the PRIDE study showed that supplementation with colostrum, up to 3 grams per day, per child, reduced URTI’s episodes by 91.2% and diarrhoeal episodes by 86.6% after twelve weeks. What was more significant was that paediatrician monitoring the children reported a high to average improvement in overall well-being of 96%.
  • Colostrum from cows was shown be a highly effective prophylactic treatment for URTI’s and diarrhoea reducing both episodes and hospitalisations. Other researchers, such as Brinkworth et al 8, have also reported reductions in URTI’s amongst a group of 174 healthy adult subjects.
  • The major finding of this study showed a significantly lesser portion of subjects taking colostrum reported URTI’s than those in the control group.
  1. Influenza and colostrum
  • URTI’s are commonly associated with colds and influenza events. One study in particular, “The Epidemiological Study in San Valentino” 10, investigated the relationship between colostrum supplementation and influenza protection compared to the commercially available influenza vaccine. Of particular interest was a group of 65 very high-risk cardiovascular subjects with prophylaxis.
  • Colostrum supplementation continued over a two-month period with 400mg of colostrum administered daily. Results of flu episodes and hospitalisations were analysed after three months of treatment. It was found that there were a total 41 episodes in the control group, compared to 57 episodes in the group that received the commercially available flu vaccination. There were a total of 13 reported episodes in the group receiving the colostrum supplement of 400mg per day and 14 episodes in the test group that received the colostrum on a daily basis and had also received the commercially available flu vaccination.
  • The results of the San Valentino study clearly demonstrated that colostrum supplementation in both healthy subjects and high-risk cardiovascular patients is at least 3 times more effective at preventing influenza episodes than a commercially available influenza vaccine. More importantly it showed that colostrum was an acceptable preventive for high-risk cardiovascular patients with prophylaxis.
  1. NSAID Toxicity (Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs) and colostrum
  • Colostrum has also been shown to be an effective treatment to mitigate the effects on common drugs on the intestinal epithelial surface. While non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) are amongst the most effective treatments for musculoskeletal injuries their chronic administration can result in severe gastric and intestinal damage.
  • The result is increased intestinal permeability, which can also be very hard for a physician to diagnose. Playford et al 3 and Khan et al 6, proposed that bovine colostrum, because of its unique composition, including naturally occurring growth factors may be a suitable treatment for NSAID induced intestinal permeability and ulceration.
  1. Distal Colitis and colostrum
  • It was found that in healthy subjects where indomethacin was administered without colostrum supplementation intestinal permeability increased significantly, whereas in the subjects who undertook colostrum supplementation and indomethacin treatment there was no significant increase in intestinal permeability.
  • Khan et al on the other hand found that when colostrum was administered as an enema for the treatment of distal colitis the group receiving the colostrum showed a significant reduction in the mean symptom score compared to the control group and histological score improved in 62.5% of the test subjects.
  1. Antifungal Activity and colostrum
  • One of the most common factors that predispose one to invasive Candida spp. infections is immunosuppression, usually as a result of chemotherapy.
  • Anti-cancer chemotherapy causes neutropenia and damage to the GI mucosa, favouring invasive Candida infections
  • Prolonged use of antibiotics eliminates the host’s competing bacterial microflora, allowing Candida to grow unchecked.
  • Adherence to host cells prevents clearance by the host.
  • Colostrum has been shown to reduce adherence of Candida* K. Harfoot, MSc thesis, University of Waikato, 2005.
  1. A combination of factors causes pathogenic effect of C. Albicans including:
  • Enzymes produced by C. Albicans
  • Morphogenesis and phenotype switching
  • Persorption of yeast cells on the gut mucosa into inner tissues
  • Induced phagocytosis by human oesophageal cells
  • Components in colostrum interfere with a number of these mechanisms reducing adherence
  1. In General
  • COLOSTRUM, is a highly valued preventive and treatment for many human health conditions.
  • Clinical trials prove the effectiveness of colostrum
  • Daily colostrum supplementation has the power to alter the gastrointestinal environment so it remains healthy and can deal with the effects of our daily lives
  • Colostrum when taken daily is an effective and novel preventive for everyday sickness and disease and supplementation improves general health and wellness in people of all ages.

Probiotika vir Troeteldiere

Voorkomende Gesondheid vir Troeteldiere 


Daar is 5 spesifike groepe probiotiese bakterie wat van belang is by troeteldiere. Klik op onderstaande skakels om die probiotika of lewegewende bakterie se waarde in die Literatuur te beskou. Lees gerus ook ander artikels in die verband op.

Die probiotiese bakterie is;

  1. Enterococcus faecium
  2. Bacillus coagulans
  3. Bifidobacterium animalis AHC7
  4. Lactobacillus acidophilus
  5. rhamnosus, L. fermentum, L. reuteri and L. salivarius.

Rol van bakterie in diere se spysverteringstelsel.

Soos by mense, is goeie bakterie in die spysverteringskanale van enige troeteldier van groot belang vir hul gesondheid. Sonder hierdie lewendgewende bakterie in hul dermkanale, waar hul ook soos by mense, +- 70% van hul immuniteit opbou teen allergente van die omgewing soos gras en stof, voedselproteien, parasietspeeksel soos by vlooie, stof en bedmyte, ens.

Sonder +- 80% van hierdie bakterie in ‘n dier se spysverteringstelsel, kan hul die volgende siektetoestande en simptome ontwikkel.

  1. Diaree
  2. Dehidrasie
  3. Irritable bowel syndrome
  4. Kroniese atopiese velinfeksies weens gis, parasiete soos vlooie en myte, dermatitis.
  5. Orale probleme in gingivitus, periodontitis, (tandvleissiektes), tandverlies, halitose.
  6. Vaginitis

Hierdie is net enkele van die probleme wat daagliks op die Facebook Blad Pierre @ Dieregesondheid gevra word. Voorbeelde van die vrae kan in die foto-kolom van die blad gevind word.



‘n Troeteldier sal sonder die funksionele probiotiese bakterie beperkte lewenslus en energie hê, omdat gebalanseerde voeding nie optimaal verteer en in voedsel (energie) omgesit word nie.

Pierre@ Diere Probiotika formule

Probiotika, soos voorheen in ander algemene skrywes uitgewys is, is in ‘n vloeistof wat ryk is aan vele groepe lewende probiotiese bakterie om gesonde en goeie bakterie tellings in die spysverteringskanale te vestig.

Daar is soos voorheen genoem vele probiotiese produkte op die mark. Dit bly die troeteldiereienaar se goeie reg om ander probiotiese produkte te gebruik  en te ondersteun. Die doel van die skrywe is om enige diereliefhebber bewus te maak van die waarde en voordele van probiotika vir sy troeteldier.

Vir die rede sal hierdie produk NIE as “Nommer een” of as “Die beste produk”op die mark beskrywe word nie. Of dit enigsins opeis as die beste nie.

Kort beskrywings van die voordele van die probiotiese bakterie in die Pierre@ Diere produk

  1. Enterococcus faecium

Enterococcus faecium vervang slegte bakterie in die spysverteringstelsel wat vir ‘n rede die oorhand gekry het oor die goeie probiotiese bakterie in die spysverteringstelsel. Dit verhoog ook anti-inflamatoriese groep bakterie in die dermkanale.

Lactobacillus acidophilus

Ander funksies, soos gegee in die skakels bo, word die belangrikheid van hierdie bakterie onderstreep wanneer dit;

  1. Bacillus coagulans

Hierdie stam probiotiese bakterie is ‘n kragtige medium om vele tipes diaree te beheer en te onderdruk, voorkom. Siektetoestande wat veroorsaak word deur

  1. die rotavirus
  2. antibiotika geindusseerde diaree
  3. Travellers”diaree of giardia,
  4. “Irritable bowel syndrome” of “inflammatory bowel disease 


Dit het ook n bydrae te lewer by

  1. Ulcerative colitis
  2. Crohn’s disease
  3. Inflamasie van die kolon of Clostridium difficile 

Die Europese Voedsel Sekerheid Organisasie het die bakterie by hul “Qualified Presumption of Safety list” gevoeg. Dit word ook goedgekeur die Europese Unie en die Amerikaanse FDA.  (U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine)

Hierdie probiotika verhoog ook die algemene gesondheid van plaasvee, varke, pluimvee, voëls om gisinfeksies en swamme se ontwikkeling te inhibeer in hul reproduktiewe stelsels.

  1. Bifidobacterium animalis AHC7

Bifidobacteria word as die “koloniseerders” van die spysverteringstels gesien en is ‘n integrale deel van ‘n die probiotiese bakterie wat bestaan in die hele spysverteringstelsel bestaan. Hierdie bakterie speel ook ‘n rol by inflamatoriese toestande en idiopatiese honde diaree.

B animalis


Hierdie groep bakterie het in toetse gewys dat hul aan die epiteelselle of “Gut lining” van die dermkanale heg, geweldig vinnig vermeerder en die groepe negatiewe bakterie wat diaree in toetse diere in geheel beskerm het teen salmonella infeksies.

Die groep bakterie het verder goeie potensiaal om akute diaree te verminder en is besonder doeltreffend om ander groepe bakterie te vermeerder. Dit word in die Literatuur beskou as een van die  belangrikste bakterie in diere se gastro-intesinale gesondheid.

 Lactobacillus acidophilus

By die gebruik van hoë dosisse antibiotika is dit belangrik om herstellende probiotika in te neem om weer die groepe bakterie in die ingewande te koloniseer. Hierdie regiment van bakterie het vir beide mens en dier baie belangrike gesondheidswaardes en eienskappe.

  • Die vermoë om acidocin CH5 en acidophilus bacteriocin te produseer wat verskeie anti-swam en fungi eienskappe het.
  • Bied beskerming teen salmonella en die bakterie campylobacterjejuni, wat die oorsaak is van maagpyn, maagkrampe, koors en diaree.
  • Help ook om diaree te voorkom weens hoë dosisse antibiotika
  • Help ook om cholestrolvlakke af te bring
  • Bevorder suksesvolle gewigstoename by jonger en diere wat siek was.
  1. L. rhamnosus, L. fermentum, L. reuteri en L. salivarius

Al vier die groepe bakterie is prominent in troeteldiere se normale mikroflora. Met sterk anti-mikrobiese werkinge in die spysverteringstelsel. Hul is ook prominent in die bevordering van die spysverteringstelsel se gesondheid.

  1. salivaris is n prominente bakterie veral waar diere met stink asems rondloop. L. reuteri is prominent in die voorkoming van spysvertering ongesteldhede en infeksies.

Voordele van ‘n “Multi Bakterie Samesteling” soos die Pierre@ D reeks.

Verskeie studies wil beweer dat multi-samestellings meer effektief is as enkelgroep probiotika teen ‘n verskeidenheid gesondheidsprobleme. Siektetoestande soos diaree,  “irritable bowel syndrome” of kroniese maagongesteldheid, lugweginfeksies, atopiese velkondisies, mineraaltekortkominge, verminderende vatbaarheid teen bakterie en skadelike patogene wat in die lug voorkom, en vele gastro-intestinale infeksies wat negatief op n dier se gesondheid inwerk.

Gesondheid met gesonde getalle probiotika in die spysverteringstelsel, laat mens en dier met verhoogde energie.

Velsorg en velveroudering by mense


Velsorgprodukte is ‘n multimiljard Rand bedryf. Mans en vroue wil nie oud word en of in die openbaar verskyn wat ander die indruk gee dat hul oud en afgeleef is nie. Vele duur produkte beweer dat hul die verouderingsproses kan vertraag en of verstadig.

Die doel hier is nie om ander se redes vir bestaan te bespreek nie, maar die redes wat gelei het tot die ontwikkeling van die Pierre@ Natural Health kolostrumproduk.

Pierre@ Natural Health gaan hoegenaamd nie beweer dat hy die produk ontwikkel het nie. Dit is gewoon glad nie waar nie. Kolostrum is deur Moeder Natuur self ontwerp.

Die gedagte aan ‘n eie unieke kolostrum balm het onstaan toe daar besef is dat als wat nodig is vir byna volledige velsorg en wondherstel, binne die natuurlike formulering van kolostrum te vinde is. Daar was net 3- in- een vraag by die samestelling van so ‘n unieke Suid Afrikaanse produk betrokke.

  1. “Hoe kry mens die volheid van kolostrum se duisende voedingsfaktore en helende eienskappe ontsluit en funksioneel op mens en dier se vel wat versorging nodig het.
  2. By mense wat velveroudering wil teewerk.
  3. Waarmee kan dit in ‘n balm omskep word wat nie weens die hoë proteieninhoud en aminosure in kolostrum gis en swamgroei gaan meebring nie?”

Hierdie Pierre @ Natural Health is in ‘n onafhanlike laboratorium getoets vir juis dit in sy samestelling.

Kolostrum se gesondheidswaardes word in meer as 19 000 wetenskaplike artikels gepubliseer in erkende bronne van publikasie soos www.pubmed.com.

Kom ons kyk na enkele faktore wat velskade veroorsaak en of betrokke is by die individu se persoonlike veroudering.

  1. Stres, woede en bekommernisfaktore
  2. Verkeerde diëet en higiëne
  3. Slegte persoonlike versorgingswaardes en gewoontes
  4. Genetiese faktore.
  5. Medisynes se newe-effekte wat velverdunning veroorsaak, maklike bloeding,
  6. Drankgebruik en rookgewoontes.
  7. Die Suid-Afrikaanse son, wind en droë weer wat die vel uitput en verdroog dat ‘n persoon ouer lyk as sy biologiese ouderdom.
  8. Lugbesoedeling, petrol, diesel en ander chemiese molekules wat vrylik in die lug wat ons inasem vermeng is en wat mikroskopies neerslag vind in die gesig se lewende selle .
  9. Vetverlies in die gesig en wangbene, oë, neus en nek wat mense ‘n “droeë kopbeen” en vermaerde skelet-effek gee.
  10. Beenverlies in die gesig weens ouderdom.

Daar is sekerlik nog.

Die punt is elke mens is elke dag blootgestel aan ‘n verskeidenheid faktore wat negatief op hul gesondheid en hul voorkoms inwerk wat die ouderdomsproses versnel.

Die volgende faktore in kolostrum het meegebring dat daar aan kolostrum as faktor gedink was in ‘n gesig en velproduk. Net enkeles word hier genoem. Daar kan waarskynlik nog meer wees.

Die volgende bewysbare faktore in gehalte kolostrum het die Pierre@ Natural Health se gedagte aan ‘n natuurlike balm in die lewe geroep. Net enkeles word nou genoem. Klin op die skakels as u meer daaroor wou oplees.

Belangrike eienskappe van belang by kolostrum as velversorgingsproduk.

  1. Kolostrum is die enigste natuurlike produk bekend in die Literatuur wat ‘n natuurlike voedingsbron is van die DNA se telomerase, wat die DNA van die vel instaat stel om te vernuwe en te verjong. Telemerase op die DNA, voorkom dat DNA stringe korter word, wat die direkte oorsaak is van velveroudering. (Proses sal deeglik verduidelik word)
  2. Telemerase stel ook onbeskadigde selle instaat om hulself te repliseer en identies te regereer met hul vervanging.
  3. Kolostrum bevat ook die epiteel- of epidermisgroeifaktor (EGF), asook die insulien-soortige groeifaktor (IGF-1), wat selle herstel en nuut regenereer. Die groeifaktore EGF en IGF-1 is belangrike rolspelers by wond herstel, veral na operasies en velongelukke, sonbrand en brandwonde.
  4. Kolostrum is ook bekend vir die hoeveelhede laktoferien wat daarin te vind is. Laktoferien is ook betrokke by die stimulasie van die immuunrespons wat by wonde en velontstekings betrokke is. Die laktoferien in die balm sal dus die vel se immuunrespons verhoog en vinniger herstel meebring veral by ontsteekte velkondisies soos aknee.
  5. Kolostrum het ‘n belangrike rol te speel by die herstel van die “Leaky gut” sindroom. ‘n Toestand waar dermvog deur die derms lek terug in die liggaam in. Hierdie skadelike vog vol bakterie lei tot toestande soos chroniese inflamasie, verskeie allergiëe, veltoestande, breinsiektetoestande, gemoedsversteurings en kroniese outo-immuunsiektes geassosieer met veroudering.
  6. Kolostrum word ook in die Literatuur beskrywe dat dit die liggaam natuurlik detoksifiseer.
  7. Die groeifaktore in kolostrum word in sommige Literatuur as tot 40 keer meer kragtig beskou as menslike kolostum en die helende faktore daarin word suksesvol op hardnekkige oop en besmette wonde vir heling aangewend.
  8. Kolostrum stimuleer ook die natuurlike menslike groeihormoon wat nou betrokke is by die regulering van liggaamsvloeistowwe, beengroei, spierontwikkeling, suiker en vet metabolisering.
  9. Kolostrum stimuleer ook die immuunsisteem om die effek van vrye radikale en skadelike velmikrobe wat op die vel mag land, te minimaliseer en skadeloos te stel
  10. Laastens, kolostrum bevat geen sintetiese produkte nie. Dit is n produk van Moeder Natuur self. Dit stimuleer die produksie van kollageen, die proteien wat tussen selle voorkom wat selle intrasellulêr verbind en sterk hou.

Elke een van die bogenoemde stellings sal in n skrywe ter verduideliking met nodige Literatuur en ander bronne geskryf word.
