    This is all fascinating! I would love to learn more about “non-Western medicine”. Can you recommend books or classes online or??? (I do use essential oils for me and my family and have noticed life changing results !)Thanks so much!

    Would you share what minerals you free feed – did you buy them? Thanks.

      Hi Melya–I’m not sure if Dr. Harman will see this comment, but on her website, she sells several free choice minerals including Rush Creek by ABC. I’ve used this mineral as well, and really like it. The only drawback is that it’s pricey!

    Jaiagulan Powder is great for winter laminitis as it creates circulation in the feet as well as speeds up hoof growth.
    Most of the food you listed as good for laminitic horses are way too high in carbohydrates and should never be fed.
    I am on a low carb diet myself and cannot eat any of those you listed for laminitic horses.
    My horse is IR and Metabilically challenges as well as PPID so I have a lot of background in what’s safe for her to eat.
    Tested low sugar/starch hay and balanced minerals are key to relieve pain as well as free turnout to allow movement which helps with circulation and bone density.
