AN150 Equine - Nervous, jumpy using a herbal support formula
When ordering this herbal formulation, please describe your horse in full, both character and physical problems. We can then formulate the appropriate herbal formulas to suit that type of behavior or performance issue. One bottle will last two to four months, or one bottle can maintain up to three horses.
We also highly recommend adding mineral Magnesium
Either - Magnesium Glycinate Powder 1/2 teaspoon twice a day or use the ReMAG Magnesium Liquid (240ml bottles) (from Dr. Carolyn Deans website) using 20 drops twice a day. This is important for all stressed, nervous or competition animals. We can also provide small sample bottles to try the ReMag magnesium liquid in a 30ml Bottle PRODUCT AN284
Note: Valerian herb is swab positive if your horse is a galloper or pacer. So, we will leave this herb out of your formula. Please make sure you let us know your horse is a racehorse.

" Valerian herb " Symptoms: horse anxious and tense within the muscles, rigid with fear, teeth gnashing on the bit. Freezes up with tension, rather than bolting, if he/she encounters a series of stressful events, he/she may just explode, buck, rear or take off.
" Vervain herb " Symptoms: this horse anxiety is processed through the skin. Sensitive and twitchy skin, generally very nervous and jumpy, without any real reason. This is a horse who is constantly agitated and highly reactive, always moving and fidgeting.
" Chamomile herb " Symptoms: this horse gets upset easily, almost always presenting with diarrhea or scours when he or she's nervous or concerned. They may show other symptoms of nerve types, but they mainly have internalized worrying characteristics. While he may be a little spooky, the main problem is in the gut. This type of nervous horse may suffer an attack of colic when under stress, and he is the one that rapidly loses weight and coat condition in stressful situations. Slow to back-up of difficulty in doing so if asked to. We often see this in racehorse situations.
" Hops herb " Symptoms: this horse processes his anxiety through his head. He/she is easily distracted mentally and is difficult for him to concentrate as she/he"s constantly very scattered and unfocused. Concentration span often seems to be less than 30 seconds. This horse is usually very busy in the head, NOT necessarily physically hot to handle or to ride.
" PassionFlower herb " Symptoms: this herb helps change old patterns, similar to the applying the TEAM t-touch hands-on therapy working on the cellular memory. This herb will allow the horse to relax and remove the need for nervous reactions. Re-educating the nervous system as it settles into new habits so that the horse no longer reacts in the old way. If just the herb as the therapy, you may find they may revert back after a year or so. So this is applying T-touch and/or homeopathic Hypericum 10M strength will work on a deeper level. Contact our office for this remedy is needed now or later.
" Hypericum herb " The herbs allow the horse to relax and remove the need for nervous reactions. This re-educates the nervous system as it settles into new habits so that the horse no longer reacts in the old way. Sometimes, after a year or so following a treatment course, a horse may revert to old behavior patterns as a result of his nervous system becoming unbalanced. Perhaps during stress resulting from a change in his physical environment ie a new owner/home, strenuous performance demands, an accident, surgery, or feeding/medication with chemicals, and almost always a month or so after treatment, following up with his particular 'mix' will correct the problem. Sometimes, however, you will find a horse that needs to be given his particular herb/s indefinitely but this horse is the exception. These horses may have long, ingrained behavior patterns, a history of abuse, or other metabolic problems that continue to upset the balance of the nervous system. These are cases to be dealt with by professional herbalists.
Also, if a horse's nervous system is seriously out of balance, there will be physiological implications such as inefficient digestion or absorption; inability to hold condition; hormonal imbalances; and structural weakness, all of which must be addressed in conjunction with the nervous system by an experienced natural therapist in order to effect a complete return to normal.
We also highly recommend supplementing your horse/s with the mineral magnesium on a daily basis, especially if performance horses, and horses that are uptight, jumpy, nervy or muscle soreness. This mineral will help calm and relax muscle's which in turn will prevent muscle damages, tears and injuries.
Because of a horse's unique metabolism, they do not need the same amount of human or canine dosage. In fact, half the amount is required.
Magnesium also makes up bone health. It is also an important relaxant for muscles. As well Magnesium stimulates the hormone calcitonin, which helps to preserve bone structure by drawing calcium out of the blood and soft tissues back into the bones. This action helps lower the likelihood of osteoporosis, some forms of arthritis, heart attack and kidney (calcium oxalate stones). So, if you're taking lots of calcium and not much magnesium or none, you are then highly susceptible to these conditions. In fact, it is advised not to take oral calcium supplements with or without magnesium, as we obtain calcium in many types of foods, but magnesium is lost very quickly, from stress, drugs, and calcium.
We actually only need to take oral Magnesium with its cofactors:
(B6-PHP Cap, Zinc Picolinate, and Boron mineral) to aid good absorption. Different herbs also provide minerals. To get Boron we use ReMyte Minerals drops (Dr. Carolyn Deans brand)
Calcium actually depletes magnesium in the body. Most of us (and pets) are storing calcium in the blood and soft tissues, so we do not need any more calcium, it is magnesium levels that we need to build up.
Note: RBC magnesium blood test is the only type of test that will reveal what is in the cells. Serum Magnesium tests only measure 1% of magnesium in the blood, not the cells of the body.
A review of nutrition and bone health published by the American College of Nutrition, it was noted that among four unique population studies each found a positive correlation between magnesium and bone mineral density.
These studies are backed up by research demonstrating that magnesium deficiency results in:
Excess release of calcium from bone into the blood without accompanying bone formation. Even mild magnesium deficiency is reported to be a leading risk factor for osteoporosis.Similarly, the use of calcium supplements in the face of a magnesium deficiency can lead to calcium deposition in the soft tissues, such as the joints, where it can promote arthritis, or in the kidney, contributing to kidney stones.
