Ask Frédérique Cauffmann : How do you measure the effects of natural products on horses?

Ask Frédérique Cauffmann : How do you measure the effects of natural products on horses?
Hello Rebecca,

Some plants have been scientifically analysed and their molecules are artificialy recreated to make medicine. The phytotherapy is based on the traditional and ancestral knowledge. In general, you can appreciate the plants’ effects on your horse when the symptoms disappear (difficult heats, skin problems,...), when you see an improvement of the horse's general state (hair more shiny, better hair and hoof quality, better psyche). Of course phytotherapy isn't an emergency medecine but it works on the « field » (as the chinese medecine) et it needs more time to get the expected result.
