|How often should I be applying Kollagen Konnect?
Kollagen Konnect should be applied daily for acute based injuries and after rides for maintenance.
|What if I don't know what dosha my horse is?
Determining the dosha is a very important aspect of Ayurvedic science for prevention and treatment protocols. It can sometimes be confusing especially if your animal seems to have characteristics of both. We have created a quiz for you to help identify what the dominant dosha is.
|Do I have to book a consultation everytime I see a change in my horse?
Once we have scheduled the consult, we evaluate every factor that influences the health of your animal from nutrition, environment, behaviours and current supplementation. A long term plan is covered in the consult fee so changes along the way do not incur additional fees.
|Are any of your products safe for human use?
All of our products and raw materials are human grade and food grade. Our global suppliers are USDA organic, BIOCERT and FDA certified and compliant. Our oils and formulations are also PROPOSITION 65 certified . The certification threshold for heavy metal allowance is a 1000 times lower then International Standards.
|What product(s) do you recommend for treating mud fever?
Mud fever is an expression of epigenetic factors on the first skin layer, Stratum Corneum. It can also create a deeper bacterial infection spread by the blood channels (Rasa and Rakta ). In the initial stages, our Dublin Dip cream applied after a wash with Bacterial Wash.. If there is heat , oozing and swelling, its necessary to address it internally as well. The formulation we use has a specific action on the two blood tissues, Rasa-plasma and Rakta -Hemoglobin.
|Can I wrap over the Fortrix Cyto-Paste?
Our new Poultice Fortrix Cyto-Paste was designed to be used both wrapped and unwrapped. If there is heat in the limb we would recommend not wrapping over top.
|When’s the best time to administer Flora Fix?
The best quality of Flora Fix is not just the antiparasitic herbs but the GI flora support to inhibit parasitic infection. It is best to be given 4-5 times per year, preferably coinciding with the new moon. Preventing parasite load is always better then removing a parasite load. Flora Fix will do both.
|How often should I be giving my horse/canine/feline neem powder?
Neem powder is best started at the start of Spring and given until the end of the fall season.
|How do I re-order?
Re-ordering custom blends and our standard blends are exclusively done from the website. You are able to login to your account and reorder directly.
|I got a new horse and I would like Theresa to create a protocol for him, but my other horse is already on a blend, do I need to book another consultation for my new horse?
Yes, every new horse requiring a custom formulation based on their current known or unknown diagnosis, must select a consult in the product section of the website.
|How long until I see a difference while using these products?
The short answer is immediately! However, please keep in mind you may not always see the results externally right away. Ayurvedic Medicine is designed to heal from the inside out not mask, band-aid or suppress the disease or inflammation. Proper treatment goes through 3 phases, catabolic, metabolic and anabolic. There will never be a blend that only addresses a particular symptom as symptoms are only an expression of the disease/dysfunction. All our blends address the entire systemic connection between tissues and their metabolism (enzymes) and their function.
|Will a blend react with my horse's current medication?
We don’t use herbs or products that interfere with allopathic treatments, however, its always best to indicate what your horse is on in the notes section when ordering. Its also good practice to give plant based medicine and allopathic medicine at least 2 hrs apart.
