Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Flower Remedies are directed at addressing the behavioural/emotional aspects of the horse.
This therapy was founded by Dr Edward Bach, who proposed that physical disease was preceded by an emotional or personality issue, and that by re balancing emotions, the health of the individual will also improve. Bach Therapy uses flower essences to achieve this, a small dose of the appropriate essence or blend of essences selected from the range of 38 remedies is given at intervals throughout the day to assist in emotional/behavioural issues.
We have many people coming to us with behaviour and performance issues in their horses that do not appear to be due to training, health or diet, and treating with Bach flowers many riders report a significant change in these behavioural patterns of their horses.
In many cases, even greater benefits are obtained if both the horse and rider are given appropriate remedies, assisting to reduce the transfer of emotions between horse and rider.
Tissue Salt Therapy also known as Biochemics
Tissue Salts assist your Horse's Health by providing minerals in an easily assimilated form, which means they are readily taken up and utilised by the body.
Dr Schleussler, in the early 1900s, proposed the theory that an imbalance in the basic tissue minerals will bring about ill health, and that treatment was most beneficial when provided in an easily assimilated form, such as homoeopathy.
Tissue Salt Therapy may be beneficial for the horse in a wide variety of health conditions including weeping eyes, muscle tension and pain, symptoms of arthritis, poor hoof and coat condition, injury, abscesses and anxiety.
Safety of our therapies
The therapies we use are extrememly safe, with many having no risk of side effects. We always work on the premise of doing no harm. If there is no change seen to benefit the horse, epecially in the case of Bach Flowers, it is usually due to our incorrect assumptions of causes. In this case we can then go back to the drawing board and fomulate a new mixture for your horse.
Our therapies are not a replacement for veterinary care, veterinary consultation is always advised if required.
