Exclusive launch of the Ayurvedic medicine applied to the horse
Thanks to some of our specialized professionals we are able to apply the Ayurvedic medicine to the horse. An absolute innvation coming from the ancient Indian veterinary medicine, allows us to treat the horse and its Spirit thoroughly and in full harmony.
Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, is not a science artificially imposed on living beings. Its foundations are not found in dead, inorganic or chemical substances; it is based on a profound communion with the spirit of life itself and a profound understanding of the living force movement and its different manifestations within our psychophysical system.
Ayurveda is science based on the observation of living beings and their relationship with the environment. In this way it classifies not only individuals, but also everything around them, including the climate and their lifestyle, in an energetic language that reflects the entire living world around us.
This medicine has the greatest clinical experience compared to any other medical system, with a history of Ayurvedic schools and hospitals dating back more than three thousand years. This practice includes herbs and minerals that are used for therapy including one of the largest existing varieties of herbal and pharmaceutical preparations. But as a science of life, Ayurveda does not need to be artificially adapted: we must understand its principles in our daily activities and in all aspects of our lives.
Ayurveda helps us to grasp nature, the meaning of our life at every level: this is the unique and extraordinary gift of this medical system to humanity.
The horse is a complex animal directly connected to the natural laws of the universe with a profound intimate interpenetration between its own soul and the soul of the universe. That is why Ayurveda, together with all natural treatments, is sensed immediately by the horse and in a direct way.
There are several therapeutic interventions provided by the practice of Ayurveda and each are articulated differently. They also show numerous direct and indirect operational possibilities. Lifestyle, behavior, physical treatments, medications, everything is explored, investigated and corrected.
Ayurveda recognizes three primary components and within them are identified qualities such as: dryness, roughness, fluidity, oily, cold, hard, hot ect.. The therapist recognizes these qualities and will apply the opposite qualities with the treatment to restore a balance. The treatments are performed with massages, cataplasm (herbal wrap) applications, oil pads or with hot swabs containing herbal powders. All these remedies are prepared by decoction of the herbs, which are then carefully mixed following the recipes quoted by Ayurveda’s ancient texts.
- They are non-toxic because they are primarily natural herbs.
- The horse, as herbivorous animal, is much more receptive to natural medicine and, for the most part, has an intense reaction with the ayurvedic therapies.
- Medicines can cause a metabolism imbalance with the consequent production of toxins that will deposit long-term in the joints and in different body areas.
- Oil helps compensate the horse characteristics (heating properties).
According to the texts of Ayurveda the Snehana therapy (anoint) it is crucial. First Sneha is derived from the Sanskrit root Snih which means to anoint but it also means caressing touch and love. Therefore the anointment therapy transmit these qualities. The therapist during the treatment transmits fondness, this is important to help the compassionate work that the behaviorist also carries out.
