Rheumatism of knee with effusion, sciatica, contraction of joints, severe bone pains, pain in hips, carpal knee joint.
One example damages in Equines - called "Carpitis"
Carpitis is the swelling (inflammation) of the soft connective tissues on the surface of the bones in the knee joint, which is also commonly referred to as a knee sprain. This condition may be acute or chronic and can affect the bones, ligaments, synovial membrane, and fibrous joint capsule. Carpitis usually shows up after exercise and can affect any kind of horse at any age, but is more common in horses that are used in cross country events, jumping, hunting, and racing.
* If damaged-fractures of the joint also use in conjunction with the HAMPL Bone Repair formula. (087)
Carpitis is an acute or chronic inflammation of the carpal joint that may involve the fibrous joint capsule, synovial membrane, associated ligaments, and bones of the carpus which is the knee apparatus in a horse. Carpitis often develops from an exercise-induced sprain of the ligaments that stabilize the interior of the knee joint. Racehorses, hunters, jumpers, and cross country eventers tend to sustain injuries leading to carpitis. In addition, poor conformation with incorrect alignment of the knees may be a contributing factor, especially in young horses that have just started training.

To be given in their daily food for the min of 2 months. Longer for Racehorses (20 drops in food daily).Carpitis is an acute or chronic inflammation of the carpal (knee joint)
that may involve the fibrous joint capsule, synovial membrane, associated ligaments, and bones of the carpus.
If neglected or not address with the correct healing program this condition can also progress to OsteoArthritis and bone calcification.
The most common clinical situations are in the carpel or fetlock joints of the young racehorse, but the problem also occurs frequently in the distal interphalangeal (coffin) and distal tarsal joint. Racing places repeated stress on both the hard and soft tissues on the joint. Capsulitis may develop secondary to synovial membrane inflammation, but the primary damage to the fibrous capsule occurs directly at its attachment to the bone. Tears in the fibrous joint capsule results and subsequent bone formation. Osselets has been defined as traumatic arthritis of the metacarpophalangeal joint.
Traumatic synovitis and capsulitis may result from single or multiple episodes of trauma to a joint.
How important is the Mineral "Magnesium"
Magnesium also makes up bone health. It is also an important relaxant for muscles. As well magnesium stimulates the hormone calcitonin, which helps to preserve bone structure by drawing calcium out of the blood and soft tissues back into the bones. This action helps lower the likelihood of osteoporosis, some forms of arthritis, heart attack and kidney (calcium oxalate stones). So, if you're taking lots of calcium and not much magnesium or none, you are then highly susceptible to these conditions. In fact, it is advised not to take oral calcium supplements with or without magnesium, as we obtain calcium in many types of foods, but magnesium is lost very quickly, from stress, drugs, and calcium.
We actually only need to take oral Magnesium with its cofactors (B6-PHP Cap, Zinc Picolinate Cap and Boron Cap) to aid good absorption.
Calcium actually depletes magnesium in the body. Most of us (and pets) are storing calcium in the blood and soft tissues, so we do not need any more calcium, it is magnesium levels that we need to build up. Note: RBC magnesium blood test is the only type of test that will reveal what is in the cells. Serum Magnesium tests only measure 1% of magnesium in the blood, not the cells of the body.
A review of nutrition and bone health published by the American College of Nutrition, it was noted that among four unique population studies each found a positive correlation between magnesium and bone mineral density.
These studies are backed up by research demonstrating that magnesium deficiency results in:
- Decreased bone strength
- Decreased bone volume
- Poor bone development
Excess release of calcium from bone into the blood without accompanying bone formation.
Even mild magnesium deficiency is reported to be a leading risk factor for osteoporosis. Similarly, the use of calcium supplements in the face of a magnesium deficiency can lead to calcium deposition in the soft tissues, such as the joints, where it can promote arthritis, or in the kidney, contributing to kidney stones.

(a) “HOMEOPATHICS”are sold in either a clear liquid or tiny white pills or granules – both have no odour or taste) Easy “application dosing” for all species:
- Homeopathic DROPS (clear liquid) DRIP or APPLY 3 to 4 drops, pat into fur/skin with bottom of bottle. i.e. back of shoulder blades (not orally) which is regarded as one dose for all size species and ages. Note: Liquid homeopathics are more suited for feline, toy dog, fish, birds and other small species
- Homeopathic PILLS (white pills) crush a pill (or whole) and add to gum/pouch of mouth to dissolve in saliva. Does not need to swallow it.
- Homeopathic GRANULES (white grain) and a small light sprinkle or a pinch to meals, or stir into water trough or bowl.
Casual repeat dosing can add to water bowl or feed dish or water trough for wildlife or farm animals.
Refer to Bottle Label for suggested frequencies repeat dosing needed per day.
NOTE: the rule is one must “repeat a dose” more frequently with less time in between each application dose, which is more important than the amount given each time. Repeat application will provide faster action.
(b) “HERBAL MEDICINES ” (brown liquid – strong odour & tasting) ”Application dosing” for all species and sizes: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat : add herbal drops (as recommended on bottle label) to some (unsweetened apple sauce or apple juice) for canines and oral syringe side of mouth. Can add other vitamins (crushed) Alkaline green powders etc. to mix.
Refer to Bottle Label for amount of drops per species size. e.g 60 drops = 1 teaspoon
What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.

CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well. ~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it. Can add crushed vitamins and herbal medicines to this as well.
