Equine Colic and Homeopathy

Horses, like humans, can experience health problems that have been difficult to treat or resistant to standard treatments of the past. I have personally found positive results with equine health problems such as colic, anxiety, phobias, allergies, wounds, and fractures (as well as sports enhancement) using natural homeopathic medicines.

The following case is a personal example of how one of my horses with a severe case of colic was remarkably cured with homeopathic remedies.

I had purchased a very well-bred Arabian mare for a special breeding program. She was a beautiful but nervous mare who didn't socialize well with other mares. As with other horses of a high-strung nature, it was difficult to keep weight on her. One morning we found her down with colic. We had a most difficult time getting her up on her feet. She had actually rubbed the hair off one side of her face and portions of her body.

Our veterinarian, after thorough examination, strongly recommended euthanasia. I chose instead to try a natural medicine that I have successfully used on colic on many less severe cases in the past. The vet left me his euthanizing drug thinking I would need to use it soon.

We administered a homeopathic indigestion/colic formula every 15 minutes for one hour and noticed a slight improvement within that hour. Over the next three hours, we gave two doses per hour with continual improvements. We gave one dose every hour until bedtime and one dose in the middle of the night; by morning the mare seemed normal, minus a lot of hair on one side. We continued one dose in the water bucket per day for about three weeks.

What amazed me is how this mare blossomed since the life and death colic incident. She put on more muscle than ever, was much calmer and thrived on minimal feed what was a constitutional weakness now became a constitutional strength. Her digestion and assimilation system were functioning incredibly well. She became one of our easiest keepers!

Natural homeopathic medicines can be used without side effects or reactions with other drugs. They can safely be used with conventional therapies to maximize the healing and recovery of your pets, farm animals, or any of earth's creatures.

After many years as a practicing classical homeopath I have been convinced the newer contemporary approaches work. Through many years of clinical challenges among multiple practitioners of various strong opinions, pure raw results have ruled in favor of the contemporary homeopathic applications. The contemporary methods of combining appropriate homeopathic ingredients, multiple potencies in an energetically cleansed pure water base, have produced a broader therapeutic spectrum that has provided deep acting curative results of the older traditional methods. The only difference is in the ease and speed of use and the higher percentage of results.

We have found many of the minor remedies have shown to be major solutions to many of today's more perplexing conditions. It was difficult in the past to discern the effective use of the minor remedies due to the small number of provings done. Of the 1300 official homeopathic remedies, the great majority are minor remedies.

The safe and effective time-tested results of homeopathy are unprecedented in the history of medicine.

Colic is one of the most dangerous medical problems affecting horses each year with its crippling and killing results. Promptly and efficiently using homeopathic remedies, along with your veterinarian' care, for this ailment can vastly reduce the number of equine deaths from colic! Every stable should have a contemporary formulated colic formula on hand for these types of emergencies.
