Bioptron Light? How it can help your horse. How you can use it
on your horse.
So, what does an elephant have to do with equine
hoofcare? Plenty. This elephant at New Zealand's Auckland
Zoo showed a marked improvement after being treated for her painful arthritis using the
Bioptron light. Zookeepers reported increased movement,
negotiating rocky terrain and hillsides more freely and
significant behavoural changes. A series of thermographs taken
during the trial period suggested increased blood flow in the
arthritic area of the feet.
If it can help elephants . . .
This light has also proven to be very effective in helping
horses, with top NZ trainers and equine therapists using it
with spectacular results. It is the ideal natural therapy to help your horse make the transition from being shod or incorrectly
trimmed, to barefoot - a transition that can be very painful,
depending on the amount of damage done to the hoof.
The transition to healthy hooves can affect your horse in many
different ways. Some horses transition with no problems and are
okay in a matter of days or weeks. Other horses can take months
or even years to be restored to full health, depending on the
level of damage within the hooves.
In any case,
painful or uncomfortable hooves can affect the horse's whole body. Compensating
for hoof pain can cause muscle, tendon and joint soreness, and
other problems that can make for a very unhappy horse. But, at
least, there are many natural therapies, such as massage and
the Bioptron Light that can make your horse more comfortable and
help your horse heal faster
during its transition period.
What is the Bioptron Light?
The Bioptron light is more than an ordinary light. It is
polarised, which means it can penetrate more than an inch into
the skin, muscle and bone to promote healing.
The Bioptron Polarised Light Therapy System from Switzerland is
based on 20 years of clinical research and development. It has a
proven record for speeding up healing and helping acute and
chronic injuries in the veterinary field, (as well as
humans). Top horsemen and women, horse studs, trainers and
Auckland Zoo use Bioptron every day.
Bioptron Light is:
- POLARIZED - (approximately 95%) its waves moves on parallel planes
- POLYCROMATICS - contains wide range of wavelengths,
including visible light and part of infrared but not UV
- INCOHERENT - light waves are not synhronized
- LOW ENERGY- stimulates various biological processes in the body.

How to use the Bioptron on your horse
The Bioptron light can be used directly on your horse, either on
an area with muscle soreness, the acupressure points,
for mudfever, immunity, or directly on the hoof. It can also be used to calm and relax
your horse and for stress relief treatment, wound healing, joint
inflammation, colds, pulled or strained tendons, splints, bone
many other complaints.
The light can also be used with colour therapy to enhance
healing. The horse will tell you what colour it wants if you
hold each colour a few inches from its nostril. The horse will
immediately be attracted by the colour it needs.
It is best to consult a trained Bioptron Consultant to provide
on going advice and assurance of the safe use of the light
without causing any harm or side effects. For more information,
