WEEK 1: HERBAL FORMULATING - THE ART & SCIENCE OF HERBAL MEDICINE
One of the most exciting and complex aspects to using herbal medicine is the art of formulation. This is where the rubber meets the road in the practical application of herbs. Through this class and woven throughout the entire course are lessons around how to blend and create your own formulas. This skill requires not only instinctive knowledge of plants but also the ability to discern which herbs are most appropriate for a particular health issue as well as how the herbs will harmonize not only with the other ingredients in a formula but with the person/animal they are being formulated for.
WEEK 2: HOLISTIC HEALTH FOR THE METABOLIC HORSE
Many horses are facing issues surrounding their metabolic health and can benefit greatly from holistic support in addition to traditional veterinary protocols. Herbs, natural stable management approaches and diet can make a considerable difference in your horse's quality of life. Because the endocrine system is impacted by so many other factors including chemicals in fly spray, wormers and in commercial horse feed looking at the big picture is an essential part of creating optimum metabolic health for your horse.
WEEK 3: EXPLORING HORMONAL HEALTH IN HORSES
Have you ever owned or been around a mare who was just down right moody, uncooperative, sensitive or even just out of sorts every few weeks when she was cycling?Just like humans, mare's hormonal cycles can be supported through the use of herbs, supplements and dietary changes. Through this class you will learn about the basics of equine hormonal fluctuations, the impact diet and supplements have on hormonal health as well as simple and effective herbal protocols to nourish and heal the hormones.
WEEK 4: NATURAL SOLUTIONS TO PARASITE CONTROL
During this class we will explore the in’s and out’s of eliminating parasites naturally. As any horse owner knows, worming is a necessary part of caring for horses. However, recent studies show that overworming can cause detrimental health impacts. During this week's class you will learn herbal and nutritional protocols to reduce parasites in horses and how to strengthen immune and digestive health in the process.
