Between prevention and maintenance lies disease. In Ayurveda, the stage of active pathologies expressed as symptoms is referred to as a Vikriti (Phenotype). It represents the body's expression of all that is in unrest, such as skin diseases, recurrent respiratory issues, behavioral concerns, and perpetual ulcers. A custom protocol is needed when there is an existing condition which is not responding to allopathic treatment or when there is a need for a more specific approach
The Consultation Process
Determine the constitution
Determine your horse's innate constitution and current dosha imbalance; this will allow us to determine the root cause of your horse's issues.
review of diagnostics
Review of Diagnostics provided by veterinarian (if applicable). The identification of symptoms provides us a road map of the pathogenesis of your horse's condition.
Clinical Nutrition-evaluating your horse's diet.
Every nutritional or medicinal item ingested has a taste, action, potency, and post-digestive effect, including the type of forage. The effect a food or plant has after digestion indicates how it will impact the tissue. The science of nutrition extends far beyond micronutrients, macronutrients, and caloric intake.
We formulate a protocol of herbs as part of the disease management program. This is determined by the strength of the digestive capacity and metabolic enzyme function.
How To Get Started
Purchase the consultation and then fill out the form. Please include a profile photo of your horse as well as a head shot including the eyes.
