Many of us are introduced to the realm of herbal medicine by using herbs as direct replacements for over-the-counter or prescription drugs. Like drugs, herbs can be used to treat the symptoms of disease effectively. Unlike many drugs, herbs are relatively safe and gentle medicines - they are very forgiving, offering a much greater margin of error and fewer adverse side effects.
If you are feeding herbs for healing
or calming purposes then it is most effective to feed the herbs on a
daily basis throughout one full blood cycle, which is 3 months (12
weeks). The condition should be vastly improved over this time to the
point where further supplementation should no longer be necessary.

Herbs as a rule should not be fed to
pregnant animals, as many of them have uterine or hormonal stimulant
properties. Before feeding a herb to a broodmare or foal, please
consult with a vet or holistic animal practitioner to substantiate
safety of a specific herb. The information provided by us on this site
is intended solely for animals older than six months of age.
