Christopher Day MRCVS has been treating horses for more than forty years and has a special interest in their safe and natural feeding and nutrition. This eBook offers a simple-to-follow approach to providing your horse with a species-suitable, fresh and wholesome diet, which has brought health and welfare benefits to so many of his patients. In the author’s opinion, expensive and vigorously-marketed manufactured horse foods and supplements are not the best way to feed your horse for stamina, performance, musculo-skeletal health, immune resilience and a long, happy and active life. The horse is the archetypal vegan and thrives on fibrous foods. Christopher Day advocates feeding as close to Nature as one can, in this modern society. This eBook provides a simple guide to taking your horse’s health and well-being into your own hands. Your horse will be thankful for it, every day.

Flu vaccine increases risk

I have long thought that vaccination over-specialises the immune system, at the expense of general immune capability.

Here’s some evidence that this theory may not be very wide of the mark:

Think very carefully before consenting to vaccination! Apart from the risk of serious side effects, these is a risk of increasing your susceptibility to other bugs.

Herbal Verbals

We seem to have a series of rhymes about herbal medicines, over at www.facebook.com/AVMC.UK

Six medicines so far: comfrey, blue cohosh, dandelion, milk thistle, peppermint and marigold.

The horse

The horse is a magnificent and wild creature, yet serves mankind so well and so remarkably willingly. This is even more surprising when you think how many work with ill-fitting saddles, ill-fitted shoes, unsuitable diets and egotistical riders.

Thank heaven there are some humans who do their horses well.

Because of the amazing anomaly presented by the horse’s power and strength, bent to our will despite our treatment (some of it from ignorance, some from intent), a poem occurred to me . . .

Dedicated to all horses and ponies, everywhere

Modern Medicine comes from Herbs

It is not a widely advertised fact that a great deal of modern medicine has derived more or less directly from herbs (herbal medicine, herbalism, phytotherapy). The modern drug derivatives from herbs are ‘unique’ chemicals, manufactured in the laboratory, so they can be patented and make their ‘inventors’ a fortune. Nonetheless, although it seems to be fashionable to demonise natural and indigenous medicine, drug companies (multinational pharmaceutical giants) have to study traditional indications for herbal medicines in order to have some idea what their new drug may be able to do!

The foxglove that indirectly gives us Digoxin

Examples of ‘older’ modern medicines derived from herbs and still in use are ASPIRIN (from Meadowsweet – Filipendula ulmaria or Willow – Salyx alba), DIGOXIN (from the Foxglove - Digitalis purpurea) and ATROPINE (from the Deadly Nightshade – Atropa belladonna).

The powerful chemotherapy drug Vincristine was derived from the Madagascar Periwinkle – Catharansus roseus formerly Vinca rosea). A modern veterinary liver drug called Denamarin contains Silybin, derived from the Milk Thistle – Silybum marianum). Morphine-type drugs (opioids) were originally derived from the Opium Poppy – Papaver somniferum). The list rolls on.

In my opinion, making patented drugs from our natural plant medicines is not necessarily a wise or safe route to follow. Certainly, side effects from drugs and deaths caused by modern drugs are legion (it is estimated that 100,000 Americans die each year from adverse effects of prescription drugs), whereas traditional herbal medicine is not plagued with such troubles.

Just remember, when modern medical folk make disparaging remarks about traditional and natural medicines, that modern medicine owes its origins, in great part, to the very medicines they deride.
