Raising Awareness to What Path our Horse’s Lifestyle is Set on-
It’s important to recognize that we live in a world of opposites… good-bad, right-wrong, left-right, up-down, hot-cold, etc. This concept also includes health and disease.
What determines which is more prevalent or what major factor contributes to whether our horse enjoys and maintains health or begins to move into or contract a diseased state?
Although there are various factors and many of which are beyond our control. We can empower health and support its vitality by keeping our horse’s lifestyle in line with the 8 Laws of Health.
Your Horse is Likely Experiencing Long Term “Fruit”
In regards to your horse’s health are you looking at the symptoms themselves or searching and becoming aware of the cause?
Think of a fruit tree for a moment… if the tree is not bearing good fruit would it be beneficial to focus and try to treat or repair the bad crop? Of course not…
It makes perfect sense that you would look to support the tree itself. Improve the soil, environment, and nutrition in hopes of resolving the cause of the bad fruit.
Please remember your horse is part of nature, so we must honor and align their lifestyle to nature. This is most effectively done through the 8 Laws of Health.
If you find yourself asking questions about “how to treat” or “how do I stop xyz symptom“… these are clear indications that you’re focus is not on health but on the problem or the disease.
This won’t generate long term results, in fact, you will find yourself asking the same questions day after day, month after month. Until the disease progresses to the point that you give up or to be honest the horse is consumed by the health concerns and dies.
In order to get your horse to health, you MUST change the questions you’re asking.
Shift your focus to health.
Your question should be something like “What is my horse’s body trying to communicate through this concern?” or “What could xyz symptom be the result of?”
Seek the answers to questions like that and you’ll have your horse set to a path of health and wellness in no time.
