At a full gallop the horse takes one breath during each complete stride. The quality of that breath and the reach of the horse’s stride depends to a large extent on the depth of it’s lung power. Congestion, allergens, and weakened or ruptured cappillaries minimize the true capacity of air required for motion. The content of air in the lungs must be free of debris, mucous, blood, dust, and infection in order to achieve a true quality respiration. Diminished lung capacity resuts in decreased oxygen supply, shortened stride and onset fatigue. Forced breathing leads to respiratory distress and bleeding which quickly shuts down the airways.
bronchial dialators stress the immune system by raising blood
pressure, causing extreme sweating and mineral loss. These same dialators
keep unnecessary pressure on the cappillaries (raising blood pressure)
prevents complete healing. In nature, horses that bleed will choose astringent
herbs that quickly heal cappillaries.
LungProof is a formula that provides herbs that increase respiratory power by reducing inflammation and increasing oxygen flow. LungProof has antibacterial suport and herbs that clean and tone the respiratory tract. LungProof encourages the removal of allergen producing waste products held in lung tissure. It contains astringent herbs that shrink inflamed tissues, powerful blood cleansers, and immune builders.
The integrity of cell strength is helped by including unprocessed, untreated essential fatty acids Omega 3 and 6 into the equine's diet. (Equus Oil provides these in the correct ratio.) These healing fats are a basic requirement in repair of all body tissue.
That which affects the kidney in a negative way will also disrupt lung function as both kidney and lung work as a team. All the vaporizing power of the lung relies on the energy of the kidney. Maintenance of a healthy kidney includes good water, clean food source, food sourced electrolytes, low sugar feeds (hay and grain), and herbal supplementation. Damaging and irritating drugs which overwork the kidneys must be reduced. Horses will drink more when fed food sourced electrolytes.
