Various health problems, infections, and conditions can affect a horse and impair their general wellbeing and quality of life. Some problems are treated relatively easy, while others require a lot of effort and well-structured approach. Strangles is a complicated infection that bioresonance can still treat successfully and in an entirely natural manner. To learn more about strangles and the role of bioresonance in this case, keep reading this post.
What is horse strangles?
Equine strangles defined as a highly contagious upper respiratory tract infection caused by bacteria called Streptococcus equi. The disease affects horses, donkeys, and ponies, regardless of their age, gender, and breed. In fact, equine strangles is one of the most prevalent horse diseases in the United Kingdom and one of the most common contagious diseases affecting horses worldwide. Equine strangles has been around for centuries, and the first reported case was in 1251. The disease is particularly dangerous for young horses. It can recur on farms with previous outbreaks of equine strangles.
What are the symptoms of equine strangles?
What many people do not know is that strangles got its name because affected horses were sometimes suffocated or strangled by the large, infected lymph nodes that obstructed their upper airway or trachea. Signs and symptoms of strangles vary from one horse to another, just like their severity. However, the most common symptoms of this equine contagious disease are:
- Swollen lymph nodes or glands around the throat
- Drainage of pus from the lymph nodes around the jaw
- Difficulty eating and/or loss of appetite
- Higher temperature
- Nasal discharge which can often be thick and yellow
Symptoms usually develop between three and 14 days after the infection, and most horses recover within six weeks when their infection is treated properly.
How is strangles spread?
The largest source of contamination is nasal discharge. Sources of strangles infection can be nose-to-nose contact with an infected horse and sharing contaminated feed tubes, water buckets, clothing, and equipment of handlers who also take care of infected animals.
How bioresonance treats horse strangles?
When infections occur in humans, the first thing doctors do is to prescribe some antibiotics to fight them. The principle is quite similar in animals too. Horse strangles is usually treated with an antibiotic which can do more harm than good.
Aren’t antibiotics supposed to tackle infections?
The truth is antibiotic use for horse strangles is quite controversial because when given early, it prevents the horse from developing the immunity to the infection. What happens next is that the affected horse becomes susceptible to re-infection. In other words, antibiotics can cause more problems in the long run because they may make the horse prone to equine strangles again.
The natural approach is always better and more effective. Bioresonance is one of the safest, minimally-invasive, and most effective approaches to treat equine strangles. The treatment involves placing applicators on the skin to track vibrations in the body and restore balance. Just like humans, the horse’s body functions properly only when there’s a balance which is easily impaired. When bad vibrations occur, and the immune system falls out of balance, various health problems occur, the body is unable to defend itself, and infections develop more easily.
What bioresonance does is that it checks the energy wavelengths coming from the body to counteract negative or faulty frequencies by restoring the optimum balance. In this particular case, bioresonance helps the affected horse by strengthening his (or her) immune system. As a result, the horse is more capable of fighting the infection without experiencing complications associated with this health problem.
Bioresonance is recognized as an effective treatment approach for animals that are suffering from problems caused by various bacteria. Once the infection goes away through this pain-free therapy, the horse is able to eliminate the symptoms that were affecting their overall health and wellbeing.
Preventing horse strangles
Infections don’t need to happen. It’s entirely possible to help your horse avoid this problem. In addition to bioresonance treatment which strengthens the immune system to prevent future infections, there are many other things to bear in mind in order to prevent equine strangles. For example:
- Make sure the yard is not overcrowded
- Avoid sharing equipment of horses of unknown health status
- Ideally, all horses should have their dedicated equipment, water buckets, etc.
- New arrivals to the yard should be quarantined for at least two weeks
- People looking after the infected horses should change their clothes and wash their hands before they proceed to take care of healthy horses
Equine strangles is a common problem in the UK and worldwide. The infection can affect any horse, but it can be treated successfully. Bioresonance works to fix negative frequencies to strengthen the immune system of a horse in order to fight off infection more effectively and protect the horse from developing it again.
