With so much information and opinions out there on how to approach natural horse health care, many owners often have a hard time deciding how to formulate a natural program specific for their horse’s needs.
Here are 3 tips that will help get you started: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Learn to recognize and interpret what your horse’s signs and symptoms are telling you.
It is important to understand that many of the health conditions that your horse has experienced over their lifetime are connected. They are rarely a series of unrelated, random events but rather the body’s way of communicating that there is an imbalance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Choose your starting point. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the combination of the most prevalent signs or symptoms that you see in your horse today. This is what I refer to as the first healing layer (the outermost layer). Once you resolve that layer you can move on to the next. This process of moving through layers can be defined as your horse’s health journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Address the underlying cause.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every successful holistic health program must focus on the root of the problem before recovery can be accomplished. It is only then that the body can restore balance and heal. This is in contrast to traditional medicine which places the focus on fixing the symptoms.
The more you know about your horse’s previous health events and you determine how they are connected, the more equipped you will be to identify the healing layer to start with.
And once you figure out what imbalance you want to focus on, you can then take it one step further by addressing the underlying cause. ⠀
