Established in 2014, alternativehorsehealth.org is a non-profit site aimed at providing information to horse owners on natural approaches to horse health, horse allergies and wellbeing. The topics included on this site range from nutrition through to injury and alternative horse therapies.
We believe there is value in both veterinary and alternative approaches. Vets have access to some excellent diagnostic techniques and powerful drugs but the development of drugs is limited only to products that can pay back the huge cost of licensing drugs around the world. Small firms are excluded from this approach by the simple barrier of huge costs.
With this in mind small firms are still the generators of an astronomical array of new nutrition and therapeutic approaches. Many are based on sound science but many are using techniques that are way ahead of the scientists (who are funded by Big Pharma so focussed on producing block busters). Where science hasn’t looked science cannot have an informed opinion but just because something is not proven by double blind, placebo controlled trials doesn’t make it untrue. The world was round before Magellan proved it by circumnavigating it and gravity existed before the apple fell on Newton’s head!
This site hopes to create a medium for alternatives to be presented to the world. Many people will prefer to stick with the scientifically proven approach. If you are one of those this site is not for you but if you are keen to explore alternatives or you have alternative approaches you believe would be of interest to others this site is for you.
We have limited resources but your input is encouraged so please contact the site administrators by filling in our contact us form.
Please note that we are still currently in the process of adding on articles and content to the site therefore the information available will steadily increase over the course of the next few months.
