Pain Point Release Testimonial -

Hello, regretfully, I won't be able to come on Dec.7th.  However, I just watched video of April Travis.  This is exactly what I want to do!!!  When I found you online, I couldn't believe it,...More so, how absolutely easy and perfectly your Pain Point Release works.   I am married to an Italian man myself, LOL, enough said there.   I had studied and practiced with Judy Shoemaker when I worked for Winbak Farm(2005) as Assistant Yearling Manager/Treatment person. That was extremely tuff to learn(and physical) but it was 3-4 times a week, for 8-10 hours a day.....A lot of hands on, and a lot of homework.  Then later, got into Lasering(I still do), then came acupressure, briefly.  Next in line to study and learn from was Dr. Kamen, also a chiropractor.  I am proud to say I have been practicing a little of "all" of it for 11 yrs. now, but by far and wide...have gotten the BEST results using what I have learned from YOU.  Much easier to apply and learn also!  Most of the horse's are located on the following farms:  Winbak Farm, MD 1500 head(standardbreds), Breeding TB Stallions at Northview Farms(Pa&Md) 15 head,  Also TB Mare's on Northview, I have been working at Bunker Hill Equestrian Center(Hunter Jumpers) 44 head, Plus I specialize in Foundered and Laminitic horse's, I have 28 head that I rotate thru all the time.  My husband is a Master, Corrective Farrier, so we meet ALOT of horse's that need help.  What a blessing it's been to watch you and learn from you, really.  We are currently in Chesapeake City, MD, but may be moving back to Grantville, Pa.....Which is where both of us are from, Penn National Race Track is where we hale from originally.  God knows I agree with your statement about race horse's, They NEED Help, even more now that there is NO PRE Race anymore(drugs).  This is perfect for them.  I know I need to start video's going, would love to show you,..and hope to be certified for this.  This is my DREAM JOB and I want to be awesome at it, and I know I can learn a lot from you.  Grateful for everything you teach us, and the horse's it helps.

My horse was high strung, didn't want to be touched on his back too much.  I'd get on him and he would buck a bit right away and his gait was off.  In the pasture, I would watch him lift his back leg up all the time like he was in pain.
 
I have spent thousands of dollars on trying to get my horse "fixed" between vets, chiropractors, energy healers, anything I could find to figure out his pain and nothing worked.  He even had the shots put in his stifles.
 
I happened to stumble across Lorrie's website and watched the videos and ordered her book that same night.  Once I got it and read it right away, my husband and I went out to use her pain point checks and releases.  He was out in every pain point, but his neck.
 
It was AMAZING!!! She said that anybody can do this and she was right.  My horse changed overnight.  He was not flinching in his withers anymore and I could touch his back without him moving away from me.  He was the calmest he has ever been.   
 
I will be forever grateful that I found Lorrie's site.  It's so easy that it makes me want to work on him everyday.  If you have ANY horse issues, I would recommend this type of modality.   
 
I was really impressed with the pain point that shows you if it's the teeth that need to be  worked on.   Needless to say, he is scheduled to see the dentist.
 
Thank you again Lorrie for sharing your knowledge!!!!

Turnout Time's Impact on Grass Consumption and Fecal pH

Turnout Time's Impact on Grass Consumption and Fecal pH

This is why Big Sky Minerals are so important, as horses in the wild live off of them, Big Sky minerals are a naturally mined mineral where your horse absorbs all that is needed for his optimal health.




Back to the basics the way nature intended
Even with modern technology in horse supplementation , there are still a lot of horse owners with issues with their horses. In doing research, we found we have drifted far from what was natural for the horse. We went back to grass roots and checked out many natural occurring mineral sources. We use some of those mineral deposits as the basis of our program. We feel we are complimenting and balancing the horse's more than we are supplementing it.
Big Sky Horse Mineral
Big Sky Horse Mineral supplies the animal with over 70 minerals in chelate form to detoxify and will aid in parasite control. These three issues all have to be addressed if we want healthy horses. You get all this in one package. What ever your horse needs Big Sky gives you the foundation to build upon.
  Big Sky is a balanced amount of of macro and micro minerals to compliment each other and help the horse balance his system. Since Big Sky is a product in its natural form, a horse will free choice it to supply his mineral needs as it is intended. Big Sky gives the horse a bigger variety of minerals than we have found in any other product. Balance by nature and in harmony with nature.
It is important what you feed a horse. It is also important how many of these nutrients the horse retains for himself . Most important, are these nutrients surrounded by the correct micro-nutrients so they can enter the blood stream in the correct balance so the horse can get the most benefit?
With the horse being somewhat of a desert animal, he prefers the mineral rich dry grasses growing around the mineral deposits in the western states. If the horse has a health issue he would even eat the mineral rich soil to correct his problem. This is what we are bringing to you for your horse. In all our years of horse nutrition I have still not found a better balanced, more complete mineral supplement system than what nature has given us.
The demand for micronutrients in any given horse is constantly changing. Force feeding micronutrients often overloads the liver and kidneys, which need to be at full capacity during high physical output. The serious horse owner should not guess at the requirements of the horse but should free choice.

Better Than A Talking Horse Press Release

Better Than A Talking Horse
How Muscle Testing can relieve your horse of pain and suffering
 
“If my horse could just talk, then I’d know how to help him!” Maybe… but there’s an even better way to find out exactly what your horse needs says certified, holistic practitioner Lorrie Bracaloni. 
 
Using her simple method of muscle testing, it’s possible to quickly determine not only an area of the horse’s body that needs attention, but exactly what remedy will work best to restore optimum health to that area. With a quick adjustment here or there, blockages which were preventing proper flow of energy are removed and visible relief is noticeable in the animal’s posture and gait.
 
Horses that otherwise might be put down have bounced back to vibrant health on her regimen of high quality food and minerals. Horse owners are amazed at the transformation of their horse’s health after just a few weeks, and some say it’s nothing short of a miracle.
 
“Occasionally you'll come across a horse in pain that just seems unexplainable. Caring owners have come to me feeling frustrated that their horse is still ‘off,’ after trying every traditional and holistic health option they could think of.
 
There is always a reason that a horse is sore. Mainly it has to do with how his muscles support his skeletal system. Muscles contract and release. When muscles tighten and cannot achieve a full release, they will remain tense and will shorten over time. This puts strain on the surrounding areas.
 
Because tightening and spasms are an extension of the normal contraction process, these types of problems do not show up on x-rays or standard testing procedures. The horse's problem can be a muscle misalignment.
 
Every move the horse makes produces stress upon a specific point. All muscles pull, so all skeletal motion is performed in this manner, too. Tight muscles can lead to spasms, knots, muscle misalignment and blocked energy. When this happens you can start to see:

·                                 Choppy strides 
·                                 Loss of impulsion
·                                 Jump refusals 
·                                 Back soreness and hollowing 
·                                 Resistance to lateral flexion and bending
·                                 Girthing problems
·                                 Biting and other "bad behaviors"
·                                 The horse being off and on "for no reason"
·                                 Improper tracking forward, back, or laterally

Covering up minor problems most often ends up creating major ones.

Maintaining Hydration in Horses: The Roles of Water and Salt

Maintaining Hydration in Horses: The Roles of Water and Salt

Always feed Redmond loose salt , free choice.


Salt and mineral blocks are a problem for horses too: they were originally designed for cattle with very rough tongues. A horse simply cannot get enough of what he needs by licking a hard salt block - his tongue is not rough enough for it. Not to mention the binders used to get that salt into a block form. Yuck!

Is Beet Pulp Toxic to Horses



Is Beet Pulp Toxic to Horses

As a holistic practitioner for more than 12 years, I have assisted more than 100 horse owners with equine diets and nutrition. I have studied and gained quite a bit of experience with equine veterinarian, Dr. Lee Miller, for fifteen years. It is my intention to share my personal experiences, both educational and in the field, regarding what I have learned about feeding beet pulp.

Nutrition and digestive processes affect performance and overall condition. Different feeds break down differently based on the horse. Some of these effects include lameness, arthritis, colic, and other health-related illnesses.

Many times feed companies and veterinarians will recommend beet pulp for COPD horses for added fiber, or as an alternate hay and grass source. Although beet pulp may present no problems in the short-term, there are no significant studies on the long-term effects. Please note that alot of horse owners feed beet pulp with no apparent problems, while other horse owners will have exhausted all treatment protocols and still not know why their horse has loose stools, stifles issues, hip problems.

Not looking at what they are feeding: so let's see what the expert vet in his field says and clear up the beet pulp issue once and for all:

Lon Leiws DVM-Feeding and Nutrition care of the Horse 1982 states quoted :

Excess amounts of oxalates ( form of salt) may be present in these plants-halogeteon, greasewood, BEETS, dock , rhubarb-(Beets =product beet pulp) - If the horse consistently eats theses plants over a LONG extendend period of time, calcium deficency will result. Insoulble oxalate crystals will deposit in the kidneys resulting in kidney damage - Could be the reason for the water molecules trying to flush the kidneys?

Beet pulp originates from sugar industry. It is an insoluble fiber, meaning that it does not interact with the body. It rushes through the intestines taking with it whatever supplements have been given. Simply put, it cannot be digested. It takes four molecules of water for the body to process beet pulp-adding water weight, and making the horse appear heavier. Once beet pulp is removed from the diet, the horse loses weight quickly, leading the owner to believe that the horse needs the beet pulp.

Dr. Joyce Harman of the Harmany Equine Clinic www.harmanyequine.com states that not all sugar can be eliminated from soaking the beets, therefore some remains in the pulp. Sugar contributes to insulin-resistance, and a condition known as Cushing's syndrome.

Like many other crops, sugar beets are treated with an extensive array of herbicides to limit weeds and grasses in the fields. The herbicides are absorbed by the beets. Nothing removes the chemicals from the pulp. In addition, growers top the beet plants with a chemical defoliant to kill back the tops before harvest. These chemicals also end up by-product beet pulp.

Dr. Eleanor Kellon, DMV, says that beet pulp is safe; it is washed with water to remove the solvents. However, the water only removes what is on the outside. The soaking process removes the sugar from the outside, but not the chemicals. Toxins are stored in the pulp not the juice.

Often, if the horse is unable to digest the beet pulp. Their hind-ends "shut down" and become weak. The common complaint being, "my horse has a weak hind-end."

Case in Kentucky - A lady emailed me about her paint that had been seen by vets, chiropractors, etc. to no avail her paint was weak from behind, bad stifles? He was 4yrs old they said arthritis, I said what are you feeding? Turns out she was feeding a product that was mostly beet pulp and rice bran. She took the paint off the feed, then sent a email stating her horse was moving much better and was able to ride him again.

A reputable event trainer, Katie Worley from Rock Solid Training Center, asked me to check her horses. I found was they were all weak in the hind-end, and Katie agreed. After looking at a tag from her feed, we found beet pulp listed as the third ingredient. After Katie took her horses off the beet pulp feed, she called to say they were using their hind-ends, and were much stronger.

Another owner, M.D. Kerns, wrote in to tell me about his horse which had been on beet pulp for nine months. "Although I was very skeptical at the onset, I am now prepared to admit that Bodhi is looking much different and much fit than he did when he was on the other feed. His coat looks good as ever and his waist (loss of all the water trapped in the hind-gut by the beet pulp fiber) is nearly back to its former Thoroughbred elegance and slimness, he is without a doubt the most handsome horse at the farm."

What does this all mean? Ask yourself these questions:

o Does my horse feel weak in the hind end?

o Are his hooves brittle?

o Does it seem like his stifles are weak?

o Does my horse appear to be lacking energy?

o What about the coat? Is it dull?

o Does my horse have loose stools? Are his stools loose or hard?

If you horse has any of these symptoms then:

Try the following for three months. Take your horse off beet pulp, and use good quality hay pellets, or grass hay, remembering to soak in water., for COPD horses- Make sure that your horse has access to free-choice minerals. In addition, read your feed labels. Most of them list "roughage by-products" which can actually contain beet pulp. Take a before and after picture, and really look at the hind-end. Notice how your horse moves after three months. I don't intend to offend anyone with this article if your horse is fine on beet pulp great, but if you are having any of theses symptoms you may take a look at what you are feeding.

Wouldn't you agree that prevention is far cheaper than the cost of treating health problems? We are our horse's caregivers. We owe it to them to be as knowledgeable and informed about what we put into them.
