In Relation to Horse Health – What are You Focusing on?
Here at Equine Essential Wellness, we focus on horse health and wellness. To us, equine health care should focus on health care, not disease care or disease treatment. I have had people come up and ask me things like, “Do you really think natural remedies can help with _________(fill in the blank)?” or “You really think essential oils work?”. These questions used to catch me off guard, but now I can simply smile and say a confident YES!
So what is health? What is wellness? The dictionary definitions are listed on the graphic below… we see health and wellness, as a balance or homeostasis in the body. Disease and illness is a lack of balance, a dis-ease in the homeostasis of the body.
Equine Health Care & Biological Terrain
When we discuss horse health you will not hear us give much thought or effort into the commonly known Germ Theory of Louis Pasteur. If you do your own research, you will see Pasteur’s flawed and disproved germ theory is the basis and foundation of modern medicine and is sadly still widely believed.
What is not as commonly known, is the discovery and research of pleomorphism. Pleomorphism was developed by French biologist Antoine Béchamp, Louis Pasteur’s largest counterpart. Unlike Pasteur’s belief that germs and pathogens are something we need to fear and wage war on, Béchamp discovered that it is the environment of the cells that will determine health or disease. By improving what Béchamp called the ‘milieu’, the environment of the cells, the so-called pathogens did not disappear but actually aided in repairing the cells.
What we focus on grows, in the case of health, the same concept is true. Through focusing on health instead of disease, Béchamp discovered that the pathogens or micro-organisms worked towards health instead of disease. When Béchamp focused on eliminating the disease or pathogen they would become stronger, harder to combat, and even morph. Through supporting a healthy cellular environment and cell regeneration, wellness can be restored without attacking or combating disease, bacteria, or pathogens. When symptoms of disease surface, it is a sign that the environment of the cells has become toxic, and needs to be restored and set to balance.
Improving Biological Terrain with Essential Oils
Although essential oils are not the only method or option for supporting equine health. It is an option we firmly believe in! Therapeutic essential oils can improve the cellular terrain because of their high-frequency levels, high ORAC ratings, and the ability to help the body get to a more alkaline state.
“Essential oils are highly alkalizing because they are the blood of the plant. They have a life force, which means that they have a high frequency. Applied to the body, their high electromagnetic frequency helps to increase the life frequency and resonance of a cell. Essential oils are also abundant in oxygen, one of the most powerful adjuncts for neutralizing acids and increasing pH. Their high medicinal value from terpenes and sesquiterpene compounds give them antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-tumor properties.” ~Gary Tunsky, The Battle for Health is Over pH
The Focus is Health not Combating Dis-ease
Over time it has become an issue for those of us who use essential oils to say words like Gary Tunsky used in his book. Any “anti” vocabulary is something we are to avoid! The more I learn about health and cellular terrain, the less this concerned me. Because essential oils are supporting a healthier body by promoting a healthier biological terrain. So really we don’t need to use those words any way!! Our focus is health, not disease.
“The primary cause of germ activity is the morbid soil in which bacteria breed and multiply. Basing our practice on these fundamental propositions, we do not endeavor “to kill the germs” with poisonous drugs, vaccines, serums, and antitoxins, but instead, we endeavor through natural ways of living and natural methods of treatment to purify the organism of the systemic waste, morbid encumbrances and disease taints which furnish the soil for the development and multiplication of disease germs.” ~Dr. Henry Lindlahr, Philosophy of Natural Therapeutics
