Holistic Horse Health: The Buzz From the Barn
Madalyn Ward, DVM shares her answers to specific holistic horse care questions from clients.
Q – “I have a question about using the New Earth Essentials Blend. The bottle states that humans should take 1 tsp. but I thought you told me my horse should also receive 1 tsp. per day? Are we just starting out slowly then increasing at some point? Also, do I continue to give my horse a multivitamin like Transfer Factor or does the Essentials Blend cover everything she would require?”
A – “Horses do take the same amount of Essentials Blend as people. Even big horses. This puzzled me until I started reading about the power of whole foods like blue green algae to heal our DNA. The body can use the algae and other whole foods in the blend to heal on the level of the DNA so very little is needed. The vitamins and minerals are also almost 100% assimilated. I am not sure about Transfer Factor, but many multivitamins are mainly synthetic in origin. The Essentials can replace formulated, synthetic products. If the Transfer Factors is whole food based, you can continue it along with the Blend.”
