Is Your Horse Toxic?
Many of us, human and animal, are toxic. As someone who has had Lyme for over 38 years, undiagnosed until it was too late for me to tolerate treatment, I keep myself alive with daily detoxification methods. For up to ten years, I have been taking cholestyramine (Rx), nebulized and oral lipoceutical glutathione, Jernigan Neuro-antitox and Zeolite powder. It is not the bacteria which makes you ill, it is the potent toxic chemicals, especially ammonia, that the bacteria produce (Dr. David Jernigan). Our dogs and I have had improvement in our health using the Zeolite Pure. I wanted to get some zeolite for the horses and found an equine bone-building supplement which is actually pure zeolite powder, also.
I started the 9 equines on Platinum Performance Osteon a short time ago as a detoxifier. There were 2 animals I was most concerned with- Jovita the burro with a little residual brain damage from a snakebite 4 years ago and Kola, the mustang who had arrived at age 2 with metabolic and hoof issues and had a sluggish personality. Jernigan Neuro-antitox had helped Jo immensely 2 years ago and it seemed to improve Kola, too.
Both Jo and Kola are much brighter already. Kola, a mustang born in Oklahoma who has always been a bit “dull” and suffered hoof problems, is acting more like a wild horse and is trotting around. Many pathogenic bacteria produce ammonia, including many gut bacteria. Lyme produces toxic ammonia. Ammonia can cause brain fog and even chronic laminitis. Zeolite binds ammonia and is used commercially in aquariums and water treatment plants. It has been added to livestock feed in Europe for more than 30 years to bind myco(mold) toxins. Think of how much mold your horse has ingested over the years. The body stores these toxic substances until something is used to bind them. Studies have shown zeolite binds many toxic chemicals and also heavy metals. It is FDA approved as safe. I am only giving the equines an ounce a day per animal, not the much larger amount recommended on the tub of Osteon for bone health.
I read that almost all the horses tested for Lyme exposure in the Midwest came up positive. I highly recommend you try this safe mineral- both the human product for yourself and your small animals and the horse product for your equines. I found this Lyme article which states that this disease is indeed a problem in horses.
“As many as 75% of horses living in areas of the country where Lyme organism infection of ticks is high will test positive for antibodies to the organism. How many of these horses have an infection that will cause obvious signs of Lyme disease is unknown. However, skepticism over whether or not Lyme disease exists in horses is long gone. It’s real.”
The problem many doctors and vets have, in my opinion, is they only worry about killing the bacteria. It has been shown the major illness and symptoms come from the toxins, not the bacteria itself. The toxins remain for years after the infection is cured. Zeolite is a safe and inexpensive way to remove them.
