CUSHINGS CASE STUDY: LORRAINE from My Lovely Horse Rescue, Dublin, Ireland. Lorraine has been with us from April 2019 and diagnosed with Cushings in 2017 by University College Dublin vets verified by ACTH levels of 163. When she came to us under a convalescence livery package, as well as having Cushings (prescribed Prascend) she had a history of issues around interacting with other horses although came with Polly who was the only one she would tolerate her.
However, when it came to the point that Lorraine would run when she saw anyone entering the field with a scoop containing the dreaded tablet, after consultation with Vets & MLHR, it was agreed to use our unique approach encompassing Zoopharmacognosy and Chiropractic work.
Today, she is now officially Cushing's free with two subsequent tests showing ACTH levels under 50 (considered normal levels). All blood tests were done at the same official Irish Govt funded lab - the Irish Equine Centre.
Quite extraordinary case, I think you will agree.
As a bonus, she will happily interact with other horses now and that anger that she arrived with has reduced significantly. Well done Lorraine, keep it up! And massive Shout Out to MLHR and the fantastic unwavering support they give to horses like Lorraine and Polly. And of course the public that give so generously to keep the MLHR doing what they do best❤️ Team Effort guys!
Hi! My name is Carly and I head up the Whitethorn Team. I am also a lifelong lover of Dogs and Horses. When my mare was having regular episodes of Colic I looked around for a solution and found Applied Zoopharmacognosy (also called the self-selection method and free choice botanicals). I was so impressed that I trained in this fascinating effective herbal approach and have gone on now to train others. That was over a decade ago and I am now part of the Whitethorn Team and work with horses and dogs all over the world to help them restore emotional and physical health. As part of the support we offer, we also supply herbal remedies at our online shop along with providing workshops and one-to-one mentoring (Onsite & Online) on how to work with them. We truly hope that you enjoy and maybe learn a little from our blog. Carly and the Whitethorn Team, Sligo Ireland
