What our Great Great Grandparents were given for pain.

Why Our Great-Grandparents were "Happier"
~^~Adapted by David Stewart from material provided by Bob Krone, YL Distributor from Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Today we are prone not to trust the U.S. Food and Drug Administration(FDA). While they were commissioned by the U.S. Congress just over a hundred years ago to protect us from fraudulent and potentially dangerous foods and drugs, today it often seems they are more interested in protecting the vested interests of companies whose foods and potions are far from healthy and, some cases, can make you sick and even cause death. Just listen to the disclaimers on television when advertising over-the-counter or prescription drugs and you know what I mean.
However, before the FDA, there was a real problem to be addressed in the country. The driving factor behind establising the FDA was because of the plethora of medicines and elixers of the 19th century that really were faudulent or dangerous and people were being duped and harmed. For example, there was a weight-loss product sold sold on pharmacy shelves that actually contained tapeworm eggs. So some sort of regulation was certainly in order. But are we better off today because of the FDA, or not?
Anyhow, here are some examples of items freely available to the public during your great-greatgrandparents days which may explain their fond memories of the "Good Old Days," even though thir life spans were shorter.
Bayer's Heroin
Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold to the public by Friedrich Bayer & Co., a German company later made famous for its aspirin, as a non-addictive substitute for morphine. It was also used to treat children suffering with a stong cough.

Coca Wine
Metcalf's Coca Wine claiming to be made from "fresh coca leaves and the purest wine," was one of a large variety of wines containing cocaine on the market. It was recommended for "neuralgia, sleeplessness, despondency, as well as fatigue of mind or body." Distributed by Theodore Metcalf & Co., of Boston, Massachusetts, it promised to be "A Pleasant tonic and Invigorator." While making you "happy," it could also work as "a medicinal treatment."

Mariani Wine
In 1875 Mariani Wine was the most famous coca wine of its time. Claiming that it was especially effective for "influenza" it promised to "quickly restore health, strength, energy, and vitality as well as "hasten convalescence." Pope Leo XIII used to carry a bottle with him at all times and allowed his smiling image to be featured on the label. The Pope was so pleased, he awarded Angelo Mariani, formulator of the libation, with a Vatican Gold Medal. Mariani Wine was distributed by Wilcox & Co. of London.

Maltine With Coca Wine
We all know that Malt has healthy attributes and has been marketed in many forms. Maltine was a 19th century tonic made by the Maltine Manufacturing Co. of New York that contained coca wine. Its lable boasted that Maltinehad won ten Gold Medals." Suggested dosage for adults was one full glass with or after every meal while children should only take half a glass.

Cocaine and Quinine
While cocaine has its own benefits as well as less desirable effects, quinine, an effective treatment for malaria, is also teratogenic (causing birth defects) and must be administered with discretion. The C.F. Boehringer & Soehne Company of Mannheim, Germany, used to boast of themselves as "The largest makers of quinine and cocaine in the world."

Opium for Asthma
The National Vaporizer Co., of Kalamazoo, Michigan, sold a product called "Vapor-OL Treatment No. 6" which contained "not more than 40% alcohol and 3 grains of opium per fluid ounce." It was recommended for "asthma and other spasmodic affections." A bottle cost 50 cents. With that much alcohol and opium, even if it didn't cure you, you didn't care.

Cocain Tablets
A company in France, V. Vanderbroek Pharmacien, used to sell mint flavored pills containing cocain for its anesthetic and antiseptic properties. It was highly recommended for stage actors, singers, techers, and preachers to achieve maximum performance. Great to "smooth" the voice.

Cocain Drops for Toothaches
Lloyd Manufacturing or Albany, New York had an "Instantaneous Cure" for a toothache--"Cocaine Toothache Drops." It was very popular for children in the late 1800s. Not only did they relieve pain, they made the children very happy.

Opium for Newborns
An American company, Sickney and Poor's, Inc., used to sell a 40% alcohol tincture of opium called "Pure Paregoric," which was listed in the U.S. Pharamacopia of remedies at the time. The dosages on the bottle were as follows: Five days old, 5 drops; Two weeks old: 8 drops; Five years old, 25 drops; Adults, 1 teaspoonful. Thus you could insure your baby to sleep well through the night, and yourself as well.

So there you have it. It seems as though yesterday's remedies were designed to keep you stoned, from cradle to grave. But with todays abundance of antidepressants, pain killers, and mind numbing drugs approved by the FDA, are we any different than the generation of our Great Greatgrandparents? The FDA sometimes seems to protect the toxic and ban the beneficial, favoring synthetic substances over natural ones like supplements, herbs, and essential oils.
You decide if we are better off with an FDA or not. We do live longer, and that is a fact. "But how and why?" is the question.

DVD & workbook testimonial

Lorrie,
I was at your seminar at the Equine Expo in VA last weekend. I read your book and watched the DVD that night. I have used the technique on both my horses with amazing results. The chiropractor had been for a visit a few days before and I had seen her use the same points. She did a few stretches in addition to the releases but I now know what she was doing. I've been able to use your instruction to maintain my horses adjustments and now both are moving better than they have in years. My lame horse had been locked up in the first rib for so long. After the release his stride almost doubled and he started landing heel first again. I now have some hope that with ongoing management he might have a chance of becoming sound again. Thanks so much for unlocking the "secret" that so many equine practitioners are not willing to divulge.
With many thanks,
Christy Rew

Colic Protocol testimonial-Excerpt from my upcoming book!

Lorrie, 

Well, last night, about 5 mins into Jay eating, he started colicing.  
I went in stall, pulled him out, got my stuff out, read your colic protocol, and started at it

squirt of High trac right away.  About 5cc.
then I gathered my homeopathy, and got organized, got my syringes out, cup, high trac, homeopathy, etc.  

Administered about 20cc of High Trac, Nux & Cammomilla, tea tree on belly button, 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper, and a magnet swipe on back 3-4 times.  Walked him for 5 mins.  

Repeated in 10 min's.   Except oil and cayenne. walked 5 mins.    
He pooped. Looking better after about 20 mins. 

Redid the high track every 15 min, till it was one hour from start of symptoms.   
Also redid homeopathy.  One more tea tree oil.  

He was back to himself in 30 minutes or less!!!  

Don't know what happened!!!
I didn't presoak the pellets very long tonight.  It was a warm day, so I didn't want to soak them in morning, for night feeding.  I have been doing that since it's been cold.  Then adding more water at feeding time.  But today, I just soaked them about 5-10 min's before feeding.  They were not as soft as usual.  They don't soften up very well when it's cold, that's why I have been letting soak between feeding, then adding more water at fedding time. If that makes sense.  So, don't know what happened.  

His lip went up in the air, like he smelled something awful.  Then it went up again and again, and that is when I went in stall, to check on his feed, and then he started cat stretching, circling and wanting to lay down.  I got him out of stall immediately and did a quick squirt of High Trac!  Etc, etc. 

On top of all of that, I FORGOT MY PHONE AT HOME!!!!  So, I just had faith in your protocol!  I had written it down and put it in my first aid kit.  So, I just hoped for the best and it worked like a charm!!!   

I stayed at barn for 1-1/2 hours from time of symptoms.  When I left, he was grazing peacefully.  But, I locked him in paddock with hay for the night.  You saved my horse!!!  That high trac does wonders!!!  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!  

Is it ok to give him full rations for morning feeding?

Up Date on the Wv Horses Seizure

An e-mail received by someone who was on-site following the seizure:
 
Sent: Thursday, October 21, 2010 7:29 PM
Subject: Mary O'Brien Case

I have some disturbing news regarding the Mary Obrien case. A hearing was scheduled today for the case, but before this could take place, a plea status hearing was conducted with only the public defender, prosecuting attorney (Kim Crockett) and the magistrate. Not a single person from the case was present including the investigating officer, animal control or myself. We actually showed up for the hearing and were told it was over. 

The only information the prosecuting attorney had was the warrant for the arrest. She has never even seen the case file or a single record or photo from the case. In addition, she never spoke with the investigating officer, animal control or myself. Basically, she prosecuted a case without even looking at the evidence and then the magistrate agreed to the plea bargain without anyone being present or at the least consulted.

What a disappointment this judicial process has been. This was a very well documented case of animal cruelty. Both Animal Control and the Sheriff's Department did their jobs. At least eight horses died or had to be euthanized from starvation and neglect in this case. 

We are holding a press conference tomorrow in front of the court house at 11:00 A.M. to demand answers from the Chief Prosecutor's office. We would appreciate any support from horse owners and the public. Please forward this to your contacts. Thank you so much for all of your help.

Sincerely,

Christine Bridges D.V.M

Nosodes Verses Vaccines

Nosodes have been used for over a hundred years in homeopathy and have an excellent track record.
All dog diseases can be controlled or eliminated by using Nosodes for distemper, Parvo, Bordatella,
Para−influenza, Leptospirosis, Adenovirys, corona and rabies. In cats the distemper, FIV, FIP,
Leukemia, and other Nosodes are available.
In Horses the flu, Rhino, EWT (Eastern and Western Encephalitis, Tetanus), West Nile, Strangles,
EPM (Equine Protozoal Myelitis) and Herpes (Pneumobort) are available and quite effective.
For the past nine years Dr. Wessener has been using Nosodes in his practice as a replacement for
vaccines and the results have surpassed his wildest dreams. Not only are the diseases controlled, as
good or better than the vaccines, but also no reactions, either acute or chronic are seen.
To clarify the foregoing statement, much of Dr. Wessner's practice is counseling people, in person,
and on the phone to all parts of the country, on the proper protocols for their pets and horses for the
effects of over−vaccination and vaccination reactions. He also teaches a week long course on Acute
Homeopathy for Animals.
Many itchy, arthritic, allergic, chronically infected ears and many other canine problems have their
roots in over vaccination. In horses, over vaccination, over use of anti−biotics, chemical fly sprays and
wormers cause many horses to succumb to EPM, Herpes, Uveitis, and autoimmune diseases not seen
50 years ago before this became a "common" practice.
There has also become an increase in the number of "itchy" horses that have been subjected to the
over use of vaccines and the over use of chemicals, including wormers (monthly paste and daily) and
fly sprays. With all the over−vaccinations, worming and strong chemical fly sprays it also makes them

Media at the Trot Meeting last Year

On October 10, we held our Fall membership meeting at
Talisman Stable, and were treated to a demonstration
by Lorrie Bracaloni on
Holistic Horse Therapies entitled
“How to Identify and Release Your Horse’s Pain Points”.
I am new to this, so  I was very surprised at
how quickly she was able to obtain noticeable results using
simple procedures. It was fascinating to watch the horses
improve in such a short time. The demonstration was followed
by a wonderful pot-luck dinner and lots of conversation.
Many thanks to Pat Talbot for hosting the event at her
magnificent stable and indoor arena, to Kyle Jossi for organizing
the event, and of course thanks to Lorrie for sharing
her knowledge and skills with us.
TROT president Ron MacNab held a
brief membership meeting followed by a demonstration by
Lorrie Bracaloni on Holistic Horse Therapies. TROT
members Pat Oliva and Sandy Boyd brought their horses for
Lorrie to do a hands on demonstration. Both horses were
suffering from the long-term effects of Lyme disease and
EPM. Lorrie pointed out areas of imbalance in the horses
and techniques to correct these problems. The audience
started out sitting in our chairs, but we were soon on our
feet to get a better view of her work. Jean Cooper a veterinarian  was chosen
as a volunteer from the audience to confirm the changes
that Lorrie effected on the horses.
A long buffet table was set out in the aisle of Pat's barn, and
following Lorrie's demonstration, we all enjoyed a delicious
pot luck dinner. Lorrie stayed to answer questions. If you
would like more information about Lorrie's techniques, her

The reason Horse lovers buy my DVD On Pain Points

I have a 6 year old paint mare and she is my first horse so I'm not very knowledgeable about horses.
This is what's been going on for the past three month. My horse is barefoot and I had her trimmed by a farrier. The next day I rode her she started tripping. I thought she was just sore from the trim and waited it out since the farrier told me there was nothing wrong. I had her trimmed again six weeks later and it just got really bad after that. She was lame in the front ( no injury, swelling, heat anywhere), her back and hind end were very sore to touch at this point too.
 Everyone at the stable told me she needed shoes and that would solve the problem. Since I don't really believe in shoes used a different barefoot trimmer instead. The trimmer told me that both of her hind hooves were a 1/4" higher in the inside which could have caused her hind end to be sore and also that  both front hooves had bruised toes and bruised bars.
My mare did get better after the trim but she is still so off. I can't get her to take the right lead, her stride is short on the front left, in the canter her back feet can't keep up with the front, the saddle always seems to tip to the left and she has developed a dip in front of the withers.
I also got a new saddle to make sure the saddle wasn't causing the problems.
After coming across your website, I did do the pain assessment from your video and she seems to be sore in the withers, mid section on the left , right stifle and her hips are not even.
Does all this make any sense to you? xxxxx

Trapped Emtotions Get Released!

Let  Lorrie's work with trapped emotions help you and your horse ,

Do you ever feel like you are still carrying around some emotional event in your past that you would rather forget?

Whether you realize it or not, the fact is you probably are still dragging certain emotional events around with you, in ways you might not have imagined...

When certain emotions are too powerful for us to handle, a short circuit is created, and a part of that emotion is 'trapped' within the body. This trapped emotion is essentially a 'ball of energy'. This type of trapped energy is invisible, yet highly dangerous to the body over time. If you have ever taken a magnet and put it near a computer screen or a tv set, and seen how the screen distorts, then you have seen the same phenomenon as this. A trapped emotion will distort the body's magnetic field in this same way. And of course, if you distort the body's magnetic field, you distort the physical tissues of the body as well, since the body itself is made of energy.

Lorrie Bracaloni has been studying under Dr Bradley Nelson who developed and wrote a book called The Emotion Code .

The Emotion Code is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of unseen baggage. Releasing trapped emotions often results in the sudden disappearance of physical problems, self-sabotage, and recurring relationship difficulties.

She said she has never had a horse that did not respond.............so here you go. Interestingly, nobody has ever heard of the book or the publisher, the vets who wrote it are Meisers and Nelson, even people who specialize in finding old books come up zip. Angels, methinks????


Acute -- at onset of symptoms Apis 30c every 30 minutes for 6 doses
followed by
1M Belladonna 30 minutes apart for 6 doses
followed by
Nux Vomica 1M every 2 hours for 6 doses

Chronic - flare up 6C Hepar Sulf hourly for 4 doses
followed by
30 C Silacea daily for 1 week
followed by
30C Cal Fluor daily for 1 week

Seedy toe, tissue involvement 30C Cal Fluor 1 day a week for 4 weeks

Abcesses Hepar Sulf and Silacea as above for chronic flare up

Her advice is to use 15 pellets per dose for a big horse, 10 for ponies. Source of the remedies: Celletech at 800-888-4066.

Alfalfa hay the real story


*Diminished performance.

Alfalfa hay generally runs at least 18-20% protein, often higher. Not all of this protein is usable, as we will discuss later in this article. A mature working horse only requires about 12% protein. Dr. Michael Glades concluded after a study at the University of Maryland that horses with excess protein in their diets ran slower race times than horses receiving the NRC recommended amounts. He found that for each 1000 grams of protein that a horse ate above his basic needs, the racing times slowed 1 to 3 seconds.

Dr. Kerry Ridgway points to an all-alfalfa diet as the cause of higher body temperature in working horses, caused by the extra work required by the internal organs to convert the protein to usable energy. He feels this leads to excess sweating and electrolyte loss, which can in turn lead to dehydration, impaction and colic.



*Hypothyroldism, thumps, bad attitude.

According to Dr. Ridgeway, the excess calcium in an alfalfa diet interferes with parathyroid function and can lead to "thumps", muscle cramps and tying up.

Excess calcium interferes with absorption of iodine, a mineral necessary for proper thyroid function. Many horses on alfalfa become hypothyroid - the thyroid gets lazy. Symptoms can be a cresty neck, a horse that gets overweight very easily, develops dry and flaky skin, etc. Some breeds show hypothyroidism by becoming very "cinchy" and skin-sensitive, getting cranky when being groomed, or losing topline muscle and hair condition. Mares that are hypothyroid often become infertile.

Horses that are hypothyroid may be very plump and shiny, but are unhealthy. They are simply retaining water in the tissues, and this inhibits proper movement. Ask any woman with P.M.S. how she feels when she is retaining water! If your horse is cranky and belligerent, resists bending and flexing, is very lazy or reacts emotionally, it may be hypothyroid.


*Tying up

Researchers at Colorado State University and in Sweden reported on the effects of excess dietary protein on T4 thyroid hormone levels. Feeding protein above daily requirements decreases the T4 levels; optimum T4 levels are necessary for horses to metabolize glucose (blood sugar) properly. Glucose is the energy source used for work, and higher glucose levels are necessary during strenuous exercise. Higher glucose levels also delay the onset of lactic acid buildup in the muscles and blood. Lactic acid buildup causes the muscles to lose their ability to contract and relax properly, and to stay in a contracted (tied up) state.

The excess calcium in alfalfa suppresses the magnesium levels in the body. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax properly after the contraction phase. In the Colorado and Swedish studies, higher magnesium levels were found to increase the T4 thyroid hormone production. Mares and fillies are especially prone to tie up on alfalfa, since they become magnesium deficient when estrogen levels inrease during their heat cycles. Supplementing magnesium is often helpful.

*Kidney problems and scratches

If your horse's stall smells like ammonia, he is in trouble. Some of the protein in alfalfa hay is actually converted to non-protein nitrogen (urea) and/or nitrates, which are toxic to horses. In an effort to get rid of excess protein and these related substances, the body produces ammonia. This is very hard on the kidneys, and can also lead to respiratory problems from inhalation of the ammonia fumes. Healthy urine should be clear, not cloudy and foul-smelling.

The tiny tubes in your horse's kidneys will, over time, get clogged with the excess protein in alfalfa, and then the calcium will begin to form kidney stones. Alfalfa is particularly hard on aging horses - Karen E. Hayes, D.V.M., feels that no horse over age 15 should have any alfalfa at all.

Scratches, which are areas of open, oozing sores usually occuring on the pasterns and legs, seem to be related to increased photosensitivity. When the scratches are on white areas of the body, removing alfalfa from the diet usually clears them up.

*Dehydration

When the body uses excess protein for energy, it snips off the nitrogen end of the protein strand before sending off the other amino acids for metabolic chores. In horses, this excess nitrogen forms urea (non-protein nitrogen) that is removed from the bloodstream via the kidneys and goes out in the urine, as was discussed above. To excrete the large amount of urea, the horse has to drink more water and urinate more frequently. Stalled horses will have soggy bedding which leads to hoof problems, thrush and discomfort (as well as more labor) and will be breathing ammonia fumes which lead to respiratory distress. There is also increased probability of dehydration during hot weather and endurance/performance events, because plasma ammonia is so toxic to the system that the need to urinate it out will outweigh the body's need to hold onto the water for hydration. These horses will also have thick, foamy sweat which does not cool them as effectively as the thin, watery sweat, so they sweat more which further dehydrates the body.


*Increased incidence of disease

Dr. T.W. Swerczek at the University of Kentucky feels that a diet high in protein and low in fiber can predispose stressed horses to become ill. Among the disorders he listed are Potomac horse fever, strangles, salmonella, ulcers, abortions, epiphysitis, etc. Stress factors can be weather, hauling, competing, even changing pasture companions.

Dr. Swerczek experimented with the diets on research horses that he infected with strangles. He divided them into two groups, and fed one group alfalfa and the other group grass hay. The horses fed alfalfa became so ill that even vaccines and antibiotics did no good. Yet, when he took away the alfalfa and high protein supplements, the disease disappeared on its own. The horses on grass hay experienced a very mild case of strangles that did not require any treatment.

He also feels that in the lactating mare, if the mare's kidneys are overloaded with high protein, the toxic metabolic wastes may be passed on in the milk and affect the health of her foal. Unhealthy foals with lowgrade colic or muscle aches from coughing can develop abnormal holding patterns in their bodies, which lead to faulty muscle development and crooked legs.


*Enteroliths

California and the west where straight alfalfa diets are common have the highest incidence of "stones" in the country. Intestinal stones are formed from ammonium magnesium phosphate. The ammonium comes from the excess protein in the alfalfa. Another contributing factor is the low fiber in alfalfa, which keeps the gut from functioning properly and allows the stones to form. Dr. Robert Bray at Cal Poly University recommends cutting back on the alfalfa portion of the ration as a means of helping to prevent stones. Research has shown that horses with a history of forming stones cannot tolerate any alfalfa without a recurrence.

*Developmental Bone Problems / Disease

Too much calcium, as found in straight alfalfa hay, interferes with the absorption of copper and zinc. These two trace minerals are important for healthy bones. Too much calcium can also lead to a calcium deficiency, strangely enough. When the circulating levels of calcium are too high in the blood, the body has an automatic mechanism which kicks out the calcium before it can be used to build strong bone. Because much of the calcium in alfalfa is unusable by the body, it can either lead to an actual calcium deficiency, or be deposited in inappropriate places as splints, spavins, etc. The safest form of calcium supplementation is a supplement of amino acid chelated (bio-available) calcium, combined with chelated trace minerals.

Researcher T. J. Hulland, a researcher at the University of Guelph-Ontario, feels that most "contracted tendons" in young horses are the result of contracted muscles in the forearm and gaskin. The tendons and ligaments themselves are not capable of shortening, but it is possible for a young horse that is getting too much calcium and protein to have the tight muscle, or borderline "tie up" condition described previously. If the problem is caught early on, dietary changes can often prevent permanent damage. By reducing the protein content of the ration (diluting alfalfa hay with mostly grass hay) and bringing the calcium/phosphorous ratio closer to the ideal 1: 1, and providing balanced minerals in a usable form, the foal is allowed to develop more normally. A magnesium deficiency, again caused by a calcium excess, can also cause the tight shoulder/gaskin muscles and cause the limb structure to become too upright.

Another bonus associated with a diet of primarily grass hay is the high levels of organic silica found in grass. This mineral is necessary for bone and connective tissue (collagen) to be properly formed. It is also essential for calcium absorption as bone is being formed. Current research is being done at Texas A & M University on the benefits of adding silica to the diets of growing horses. (An additional benefit of feeding grass hay - your horse's teeth may not need to be floated as often - the silica content of grass hay tends to keep the sharp edges worn down.) Bone is a living organ, constantly being formed and remodeled according to the mineral content of the body and the stresses placed upon it. Proper mineral balance is important!



*Colic

Because alfalfa is very rich, it is not feasible to allow horses free access without them becoming much too heavy. Problem is, alfalfa is also quite low in fiber. Horses need adequate fiber in order for their digestive system to function properly - they are designed to be nibbling constantly and to have some fiber in the tract at all times. When they eat alfalfa, they usually are done in a hour or so, and then nothing is entering the tract until the next feeding, usually many hours later. This scenario predisposes a horse to colic. With quality grass hay, the horse is able to "graze" on it all day, and does not become ravenous and gobble feed. If proper digestive aids (probiotics, yeast cultures) are included in the ration, the animal is satisfied with less feed and does not develop a "hay belly".



*Arthritis

A by-product of protein digestion is acid. A horse that is on a high alfalfa diet produces excess
acid. Equine bodies, like ours, need to be on the alkaline side in order to survive; a high protein diet triggers some emergency responses in the system. Since minerals are mostly alkaline, the body will pull minerals from the tissues and bones in order to buffer the acids in the bloodstream so that the heart can keep functioning. To the body, the heart has a higher priority than strength of bones and ligaments. As the tissues and bones become demineralized, ligaments become slack. You may hear clicking in the joints, and the horse will maybe develop a sore back because the muscles are having to do the work that the ligaments should be doing. As time goes on, the body will try to stabilize the joints by building up calcium deposits, and you will see osselets, spavins, navicular, etc. The stage is set, and the horse becomes more and more unsound. A lower protein diet (grass hay and plain grain) with proper mineral support can help prevent this scenario, and perhaps even reverse some of the damage.

Summary:

We need to reevaluate our ideas of what a fit, healthy horse looks like. Much of the technology being used in horse feeds is from the cattle and livestock industry, where high protein rations, sugar and thyroid inhibitors such as alfalfa, molasses and linseed meal are used to fatten animals for slaughter or to increase milk production. Problem is, a fat steer is not expected to remain sound for 20+ years, to bend and flex and travel freely, and have a trainable attitude! Many halter and pleasure horses, especially young futurity horses, are pushed beyond their genetic and nutritional capacity and end up being unsound at a very early age. Many horses that are considered "untrainable" or high strung are simply physically and emotionally out of control due to thyroid or other metabolic nutritionally-induced imbalance.

Dr.KarenHayes,D.V.M.,states, "Under no circumstances should the amount of alfalfa in your horse's diet ever exceed 40% (by weight). Any more than that and you are risking the perils of excess protein and excess calcium, both of which can do some unbelievable damage. If your horse's ration consists of 100% alfalfa, he may look healthy, but that does not mean it isn't taxing his system. "

We recommend top quality grass hay with perhaps a little alfalfa (maybe up to 20%) added for lactation and in some cases for growth. Feed plain (without molasses) grains such as oats, corn and barley mixed. Combined with balanced minerals in a bioavailable (chelated) form, and the proper use of digestive aids to maximize feed utilization, this diet will produce healthy athletes that are sound in body and mind. Your horses will thank you!

We can advise you about the supplements available to balance your ration for your particular needs. We have over 20 horse products available for maintenance, training, breeding and growth, and high performance. We look forward to working with you!

Another Great Testimonial! Going Natural!

Hi Lorrie,
 
I was just thinking about you yesterday and planning to tell you how amazed and excited we are with the changes in our horses.  Marley is no longer covered with belly bites and he is loosing some of that excess weight!!!.  Rolo's withers, back and ribcage are no longer reactive!!!!...when I got him the trainer showed me that his side was very reactive with grooming but he assured me that he was just sensitive and that if I kept grooming he would be fine! ...WRONG!  So he was racing with ribs and probably withers out!...no wonder he developed and oslet and went lame then did not want to be ridden!  JB has gained a little weight and the rain rot on his hind feet is nearly gone and he is more comfortable in the hind quarters! They all shine MORE than they did with oil!!! Marley is dappled.

Heart wall

Trapped Emotions & The HeartWall©
Do you ever feel like you are still carrying around some emotional event in your past that you would rather forget?
Whether you realize it or not, the fact is you probably are still dragging certain emotional events around with you, in
ways you might not have imagined...
Thousands of years ago, the Chinese correlated each emotion that we experience with different organs in the body.
Many years of careful observation taught these ancient physicians that various emotions seem to actually emanate
from specific organs and glands in the body, and too much of any emotion can cause congestion and imbalance
organ. For example, if you have an abundance of anger in your life, eventually your liver or gall bladder (or both) will
become imbalanced. Of course, here in the West, we believe that the brain is the seat of emotions as well as all
intelligence, so these old beliefs seem a bit odd, to say the least, and are dismissed by many of the learned physicians
of our day. Nevertheless, the more we learn about the mind-body connection, the more we realize that we really don't
know anymore where the mind ends and the body begins. Maybe the Chinese were right after all.
When certain emotions are too powerful for us to handle, a short circuit is created, and a part of that emotion is
'trapped' within the body. This trapped emotion is essentially a 'ball of energy'. The picture at right depicts the body's
magnetic field. The green ball represents one of these 'trapped emotions' which has become lodged in the upper right
chest. Notice how it is distorting the magnetic field?
This type of trapped energy is invisible, yet highly dangerous to the body over time. If you have ever taken a magnet
and put it near a computer screen or a tv set, and seen how the screen distorts, then you have seen the same
phenomenon as this. A trapped emotion will distort the body's magnetic field in this same way. And of course, if you
distort the body's magnetic field, you distort the physical tissues of the body as well, since the body itself is made of
energy.
We are all subjected to various emotions every day of our lives. We usually are able to process these emotions
without too much trouble. We experience the emotion as it passes through us, and we move on. I've realized
however, that emotions are processed on two levels: physically and mentally. Sometimes certain emotions are so
powerful that the physical body does not process them. These emotions become "trapped" in the body, and lead to all
manner of physical illnesses.
How can a trapped emotion exert that kind of pressure on physical tissue in the body? I believe that the trapped
emotion (a ball of energy), distorts the magnetic field of the body, thereby distorting the physical body itself, causing
pain and malfunction. After all, our bodies are really nothing more than atoms, and atoms are made of energy, right?
What happens to body tissue when it is continually irritated over time? In many cases, the tissue goes into a state of
metaplasia, or change. The next step is malignancy, or cancer. Is it possible the trapped emotions can lead to cancer
in the body? I believe the answer is yes. I do not treat cancer at our clinics, and I make that very clear to my
patients. However, patients do come to our clinics that happen to have cancer. We do our best to restore balance to
their bodies, and having a more balanced body can definitely help. Every patient with cancer that I have ever seen
has always had emotions trapped in the malignant tissues. While these particular patients are often concurrently
undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for their cancers, I find and released the emotions that are trapped,
and I believe that it helps. I believe the day will come when all physicians will realize the danger of trapped emotions
and the importance of having them released.
Trapped emotions can even be inherited! If one of your parents has a trapped emotion, it is possible that a bit of that
energy can actually be passed through to you at the moment of conception.
Sometimes trapped emotions can become lodged in the area of the heart, and can create what I call a 'HeartWall'.
Heartache and Broken Hearts
Have you ever been injured emotionally? Have you ever felt that emotional heaviness in your chest like your heart was
breaking?
The heart is the center of your being. In fact, research now indicates that the heart may be a second brain, a brain
more powerful than the one on top of your shoulders. A brain that is fully activated when you are giving and receiving
pure love and acts of pure, unselfish devotion. It is through our heart that we give and receive love.
But our hearts are vulnerable to injury. Sometimes trapped emotions are created in the body, and sometimes these
trapped emotions lodge in the heart area.
Since all things are nothing but pure energy by their very nature, a trapped emotion is no different, and consists of
pure energy.
Well, sometimes your subconscious mind will take that extra energy that is now in the heart area, and it will literally
make a 'wall' with it. Why? To protect your heart from injury so as to keep your heart from being totally broken.
You can be born with a HeartWall, but usually it gets built up over time. One of the most interesting things about the
HeartWall is that it is always made out of something. (The mind is logical. How can you have a wall made out of
nothing?)
And so, the HeartWall is like the projected image from a movie projector. The subconscious mind is free to choose any
material for it. My testing has revealed a wide variety of substances, thicknesses and characteristics of the HeartWall.
Usually, the material chosen, as well as the thickness of the wall, have definite symbolic meanings relating to the
person's life or circumstances. For example, I have seen HeartWalls range from paper-thin to thousands of miles in
thickness. Remember that the Heart Wall is a "projection" of the mind and the mind is not limited in a physical sense;
nevertheless, this "projection" seems to have a definite effect on the body, both mentally and physically.
I believe that Heart Walls affect us in two ways. First, they block the heart energy from flowing through the body; this
makes it more difficult for the body to heal itself, and can cause physical symptoms, particularly in the neck, upper
back and shoulders. Second, they block us from fully opening our hearts to others.
In essence, a HeartWall will make you numb to others and make it more difficult for you to feel emotions and connect
to others. When you realize that the mind puts the heart wall up to protect us in the first place, it all makes sense.
In essence, a HeartWall will make it harder for you to give and receive love.
When the Heart Wall is removed from the body, the difference can sometimes be felt immediately. At other times, the
change is more subtle and takes place over time. One of the main reasons that I teach my 'Balancing the Body Electric'
seminars involves the HeartWall. I can never hope to clear enough HeartWalls in my lifetime to make a very big
difference to the world. But if enough individuals are trained how to release these emotions, many hearts can be
"unlocked", and the level of love and understanding in the world will increase. In this small way, maybe we really can
change the world.
The importance of clearing the HeartWall from yourself and your loved ones cannot be overestimated. In practice, I
have found incredibly profound results from clearing the emotions that form the heart wall. I have seen suicidedepressed
people completely get over their depression and recover after having the heartwall cleared. I have seen
seemingly unreachable, very angry young people who were getting poor grades turn their lives around. I have seen
the incredible serenity that people regain when they again feel connected to the people around them. People have
even related to us that for the first time in their lives they can actually feel God's love for them.
Thank you for allowing me to share my knowledge with you. If you are interested in having your Heart wall trapped
emotions released at another time, you may contact Lorrie at www.happynaturalhorse.com or email lbraca1956@aol.com
