The benefits of phytotherapy
The enormous progress made by modern medicine notwithstanding, phytotherapy offers many benefits. We should bear in mind that except for recent years, people have only used plants to care for themselves. Today, plant-based treatments are returning to the forefront, because the efficacy of medicines such as antibiotics (considered as the universal solution for serious infections) is declining. Bacteria and viruses have gradually adapted to medicines and are increasingly more resistant. Phytotherapy, which proposes natural and efficacious remedies, is well accepted by the horse’s organism. The horse is herbivorous, its digestive system is ideally made to assimilate herbs and all their components fully. The horse appreciates the taste of plants, they are 100% natural, without artificial flavourings or preservatives. Phytotherapy has yet another advantage: there are no side effects, and the plants can be consumed throughout the year at the dose prescribed by your specialist.
Nutritional and healing plants
The equine organism is often far better suited to a plant-based treatment than an exclusively chemical therapy. Horses and plants have lived side by side for thousands of years. Horses are used to eating and digesting different species of plants.
To make the most out of medicinal plants, particular care must be taken to ensure that the herbs and their derivatives are of excellent quality. This requires that they be cultivated in good conditions, correctly dried, kept properly, and that their “best by” date be duly complied with. Vital’Herbs undertakes to use only top quality herbs.
