We are diving into homeopathy for horses today.

I love and appreciate homeopathy, and I am studying to gain the necessary credentials to become a homeopath for humans. 

Homeopathy often gets misconstrued as synonymous with holistic or natural healing methods. But it is not. Homeopathy stands alone as a distinct type of medicine.

In today's episode, I explain the essence of homeopathy and explore its unique benefits for our equine companions.

An Introduction to Homeopathy for Horses

Homeopathy is not just another approach to healing. It is the second-largest system of medicine globally. Unfortunately, we are lagging in incorporating it into healthcare here in North America. Unlike other countries where homeopathy is widespread, many Americans remain unaware of its benefits- especially for horses. 

The Roots of Homeopathy

The roots of homeopathy trace back to the early 1800s, when Dr. Samuel Hahnemann explored the energetic aspects of various substances, ultimately leading to the development of the Law of Similars, a foundational philosophy of homeopathy.

Homeopathic Remedies and the Law of Similars 

Homeopathic remedies are derived from plants, animals, and minerals and operate on the principle of like cures like. Homeopathy matches the energetic profile of a substance to the symptoms of an individual, whether human or horse and stimulates a natural healing response. Controversies have arisen from skepticism about the effectiveness of highly diluted remedies. However, technological advancements like nanotechnology have shed light on the presence of particles beyond what could previously be detected conventionally.

Homeopathy is a Vibrational Medicine

Homeopathic remedies are diluted energetic forms that target specific symptoms, acting as an effective first aid option without any harmful side effects. Homeopathy aligns well with horses' natural chemistry and their sensitivity to energies. In contrast to allopathic medicine, homeopathic remedies work on a vibrational level as a gentle and holistic approach for horses.

The Benefits of Homeopathy for Horses

Homeopathy offers numerous benefits for horses, making it a safe, fast-acting, and environmentally friendly choice. With no harmful side effects, it is particularly advantageous for pregnant or lactating mares. Horses respond well to the vibrational nature of homeopathy, which offers relief from various conditions, including injuries, infections, and digestive issues.

Selecting Homeopathic Remedies

Choosing homeopathic remedies involves analyzing the symptoms and then selecting the appropriate ones. I like to have Arnica on hand for trauma, RhusToxicodendron for ligament strains, and Nux Vomica for digestive issues. Combination remedies, like Calm Aid or Trauma Drops, offer broader coverage for specific situations, and tissue aids target infections effectively.

Administering Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathic remedies are administered orally. They can either be dissolved under the tongue or diluted in water for horses to ensure a clean application. 

A Versatile Option Healing Horses

Homeopathy is a versatile option for horses because it focuses on their symptoms and contributes to their overall well-being. The safety, efficacy, and environmental friendliness of homeopathy make it a valuable addition to the toolkit of all horse owners. You can find single remedies in health food stores, and Riva’s Remedies provides combination remedies specifically designed for horses.
