Chinese Theory behind Acute Trauma: Herbsmith Acute Trauma is a blend of blood moving herbs. From a traditional Chinese medical standpoint, tissue damage leads to stasis or stagnation of blood. The damage to the affected tissue is evidence of this blood stasis. With time, this stagnation affects the flow of energy, or Qi, to the affected area and long-term damage can result. Herbsmith Acute Trauma is designed to invigorate and move the blood. Without the stagnation of blood, the discomfort and tissue damage is managed and the natural healing process is supported. This blend is effective in ancient theory and in modern practice.
Our herbs are sourced individually from specific providences of China, where the climate and quality of the soil combine to provide a far superior growing environment to anywhere else on the globe. Each batch of herbs is then re-tested in the USA by the FDA to ensure purity, authenticity and safety, guaranteeing they are free of sulfur, heavy metals and bacteria. All Herbsmith formulas are show safe and do not contain any forbidden substances under USEF and FEI rules for horses in competition.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do Chinese herbs do?
Chinese herbs work to address the root causes of underlying disharmonies within the animal. Chinese herbs have been used successfully for thousands of years to support health.
How do Chinese herbs work?
Chinese herbs work using a system of observing signs/symptoms. This is then translated into a pattern, or more commonly, a series of patterns. These patterns correlate to specific conditions. The goal is to bring the state of the body into balance, resulting in relief. Once the body is in a balanced state, health is maintained.
How long does it take for Chinese herbs to work?
Typically you will see the results of the herbs within a few weeks.
What if my horse won't eat the powder?
Though Herbsmith herbal blends are very palatable, occasionally horses are hesitant to eat the herbs because of the unfamiliar taste and smell. If you find this to be the case with your horse, we suggest sprinkling a pinch of the powder in their grain at mealtime to gradually acquaint the horse with the blend. Slowly increase the quantity given each day until they eat a full dose without hesitation. Alternatively, you can combine the powdered formula with wet or dry molasses or ground flax seed.
Herbsmith also offers all of our herbal blends mixed with ground flax seed as Flax Plus for added flavor and palatability.
