Do you have a medical problem with your horse that is not responding to drugs?
Does your horse have weak hooves no matter how many supplements you feed?
Does your horse always seem to be on edge and unpredictable?
If you have any of these issues or other puzzling challenges you can AskMyriah.
I'm Dr. Madalyn Ward, and I've been a veterinarian for over 40 years, the last 30 of which have been spent specializing in holistic equine health.
I help my clients create a balanced lifestyle for their equines. Utilizing homeopathy, nutrition, holistic management practices, herbal medicine, osteopathy, chiropractic, as well as other natural approaches. As my clients moved to a holistic, balanced, natural lifestyle, their horse’s thrived. They suffered less often from chronic conditions and had fewer emergencies, such as colic.
My holistic approach embraces these 4 principles:
- A healthy horse starts with a healthy gut!
- If your horse can't rest, he can't digest - or learn!
- Symptoms are how your horse talks to you!
- When in doubt - Do less
While there are some amazing advances being made in equine medicine, there is still a lack of educational, useful, and practical information available to the horse keeping community, especially from the holistic perceptive.
With the crisis of decreasing numbers of available equine veterinarians and rising costs. I have seen a marked increase in desire to learn a more holistic, basic, approach to horse keeping, that one can manage on their own.
In response to this educational need, I have developed a free self-help platform, entitled AskMyriah. Through this platform, you can ask specific questions about horse care and management. AskMyriah’s answers will reflect my holistic approach of addressing the underlying causes of conditions. Detailed answers and recommendations are given and are based on my 30 years of direct experience and case work. The information is compiled from my book, Holistic Horsekeeping and the many newsletters, articles, blog posts, and presentations I have composed.
When you create a question in sentence form, AskMyriah. will instantly search my extensive library to give you the answer I would give!
I hope you receive abundant help and support via this platform, and I would love your feedback as you begin the experience.
If you would like to hear about my personal journey of transitioning from traditional to holistic veterinary medicine, which was not easy, but many have been curious about, you can check out this video.
