What is Holistic and Integrative approach to treat your horse
Adopting holistic and integrative approach to treat horses, include the following perception:
Horses actions and reactions derive from mental, emotional and physical conditions they are in. Healthy food, their natural need for mobility, physical space conditions and hygiene, social interactions, and love, all have positive impact on horse health, well-being, motivation and performance.
Integrative health perception is a multidisciplinary solution approach based on individual horse’s needs. Western medicine together with alternative therapeutic modalities such as massage, acupuncture and vibrations therapy can help speed recovery from injury, reduce stress, increase metabolism and boost motivation to perform.
Horses are very sensitive animals. Affection, love and verbal compliments, together with rewards and positive conditioning of food, hugs and inner body massage may increase motivation of a horse to perform better, feel better in general, and be resilient in stressful conditions.
“The techniques used in holistic medicine are gentle, minimally invasive, and incorporate patient well-being and stress reduction. Holistic thinking is centered on love, empathy, and respect.
In treating an animal, a holistic veterinarian will determine the best combination of both conventional and alternative (or complementary) therapies for a given individual. This mixture of healing arts and skills is as natural as life itself. Therein lies the very essence of the word “(w)holistic.” It means taking in the whole picture of the patient—the environment, the disease pattern, the relationship of pet with owner—and developing a treatment protocol using a wide range of therapies for healing the patient. The holistic practitioner is interested not only in a medical history, but also genetics, nutrition, environment, family relationships, stress levels, and other factors.”
