Formula Origin

“My wife and I moved to New Mexico, aside from having fallen in love with Santa Fe, to be able to bring horses into our lives in a more all-encompassing way. 

Horses, on the one hand, are big, strong, magnificent creatures. On the other hand, they can be quite delicate, prone to all kinds of maladies (that seem to always come on in the middle of the night or on a Sunday.) 

My first EQUINE bioformula, Bone & Joint, had already proved successful for navicular horses and horses with all sorts of musculoskeletal problems. It was time to formulate new ones. One of our horses came to us with a respiratory condition that he had developed from his previous ten years at a commercial boarding facility. He was older and also had some arthritis. He was already taking Bone & Joint and that, along with good chiropractic care and having 24/7 access to the pasture where he could move around as he desired made that a non-issue. But what to do about his breathing problem? 

I mixed up a combination of my Lung Health and Enviro Defense bioformulas for people and gave it to him. He loved it and would just lick it right out of my hand. Within 20 minutes his breathing would normalize. [ Lung & Allergy ] After that I started adding it to his feed and only occasionally needed to give him extra by hand.

Another thing about horses is that they are flight animals. They are always on the lookout for the monster that is hiding behind that next bush and ready to flee. There’s a saying that there are only two things that scare horses: things that move and things that don’t move. Sure, some horses are the “been there, done that” type that don’t seem to get upset about much, but even they are always on the alert. Just watch their ears. 

Next up then was to concoct a bioformula to calm the anxious equine, something to take the edge off and relax. Combining ingredients from Anxiety Relief and Mood Boost bioformulas for people was an effective combination [ Calm & Happy ]. Soaking a cookie or two in the formula, or licking it from your hand, before a trail ride makes both horse and rider happier.

In my travels to different barns as an equine chiropractor I get to see a lot. Skin problems are pretty common and have varied causes, from allergic reactions to insect bites, to fungal infections and parasites. Regardless of cause, and even with topically-applied treatments, an essential approach to these conditions is to treat them from within. I created an EQUINE Skin & Allergy bioformula based on the success that my CANINE Skin & Allergy has had since 2017.  This bioformula supports healthy skin and strengthens the immune system to minimize the equine’s reaction to any of the different causative agents.” Dr. Garber, D.C., Ph.D.

Gemmotherapy

Black Currant buds (Ribes nigrum

These buds act as a potent adrenal drainer (the adrenals sit just above the kidneys, which help regulate metabolism and the immune system, as well as your equine’s stress response). They have long been used to treat a depleted nervous system and lack of energy and to treat various inflammatory diseases. Black Currants are probably the best anti-inflammatory. They are also an amazing adrenal stimulator, which strengthens the immune system, and they help decreased the cortisol levels in the body.

Gemmotherapy

Briar Rose shoots (Rosa canina)

The sphere of influence for the shoots of these light-pinkish flowers resides in the upper respiratory system, particularly in the nasal passages, sinuses and throat.

Gemmotherapy

Common Juniper shoots (Juniperus communis

These shoots help detoxify the liver and down-regulate the production of histamine (the chemical that causes many of the symptoms of allergies).

Gemmotherapy

European Filbert buds (Corylus avellana

This Gemmo acts as a primary lung drainer and has anti-fibrotic properties (slowing down the rate of fibrosis—or scarring—in the lungs).

Gemmotherapy

European Hornbeam buds (Carpinus betulus) 

These buds have an anti-infective action on the respiratory system. According to a study published in Science Direct in 2016, “the antioxidant and anticancer related properties of European hornbeam (Carpinus betulus L.) leaf extracts are remarkable.”

Lithy Tree buds (Viburnum lantana)

Gemmotherapy

Lithy Tree buds (Viburnum lantana) 

This powerful lung drainer has an anti-spasmodic effect on the trachea, the bronchi and the bronchioles, which transport air from the environment to your equine’s lungs.

Lithotherapy

Galena

This Litho has been found to play an important role in immune function and especially in the treatment of allergies of all types.

Stibnite

Lithotherapy

Stibnite

This Litho acts on the mucus membranes, and on the respiratory system. Given the constant exposure to the environment (via the air taken in through the nostrils and lungs), these membranes are often the first line of defense against noxious environmental irritants.

Organotherapy

Pineal Gland extract 

This extract comes from the pineal gland, a small endocrine gland inside the brain. The pineal gland produces melatonin, the serotonin-derived hormone that maintains and controls circadian and seasonal rhythms. This gland is used for its involvement in immunoregulation.

Organotherapy

Pulmonary extract 

The Pulmonary extract comes from potentized lung tissue, which normalizes all of the cellular functions of the pulmonary system (the lungs).
