Pumpkins are nourishing and healing. The flesh is used (canned, pure pumpkin without spices or puree made at home from cooked flesh) to regulate the bowels of dogs. Adding a quarter cup for very large dogs, two tablespoons for medium size and one tablespoon for small dogs to each feeding will balance the digestive system, relieving constipation or diarrhea.
Pumpkin flesh is full of beta-carotene and enzymes. It can be fed to horses, cubed and added to mashes (raw), 2 to 3 cups daily. The enzymes that fresh, raw foods provide are essential to the health of all species. Enzymes are used by the body for digestion, joint health, brain function and detoxification.
Pumpkin Seeds support human prostate health and are anti-parasitic. The seeds contain 30% fixed/volatile oils; starches, protein, and an anti-parasite property from a resin that is also supported by a physical "scraping" clean effect from the hulls of the seeds. Pumpkin seeds can be brewed as an infusion and used for tea for people or dogs, as a drench for horses to strengthen the renal system. Use fresh seeds for brewing; buy the dry seeds at a health food market or dry them yourself to add to salads, soups, yogurt (unsalted), etc.
