Herbal Medicine for the Obese Horse and Equine Lipomas


If you have an obese horse or challenges with fatty tumors, we might be able to help.

Horses suffer from obesity just like humans.

An obese horse can suffer from many health problems.

In fact, research suggests horse obesity is on the rise, reaching epidemic proportions.

Some attribute equine obesity to a stress response, others to overfeeding.

Sometimes, horses of normal weight suffer from obtrusive fatty tumors.

Fatty tumors, also called lipomas, are benign in nature.

Vets usually only remove lipomas affecting mobility.

Sometimes, however, owners will request lipoma removal for cosmetic reasons.

Obesity, on the other hand, brings with it a slew of other health issues:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone and joint problems
  • Fatigue
  • Insulin resistance
  • Laminitis
  • Lowered immunity
  • Reduced reproduction.

Luckily, Eastern medicine offers a natural, herbal solution for horse obesity and fatty tumors.

Phlegm Fat Formula: Western Medicine Applications

The Chinese herbal blend, Phlegm Fat Formula, helps horses with the following Western diagnoses:

  • Obesity
  • Fatty Tumors

Phlegm Fat Formula: Eastern Medicine Applications

Eastern medicine treats a disease’s root cause(s) rather than symptoms.

Accordingly, TCVM veterinarians use a different evaluation process than Western veterinarians.

TCVM vets look for signs of imbalance.

Phlegm Fat Formula helps horses with the following TCVM signs:

  • Obesity
  • Fatty Tumors
  • Excess Dampness
  • Excess Phlegm

According to TCVM theory, an accumulation of Phlegm and Dampness is the cause of obesity.

In TCM, Phlegm also includes the accumulation of unwanted products and toxins (excess fat and food residues) in the body.

Dampness is the same as water retention in TCM theory.

Imbalances during food intake, digestion and absorption contribute to Excess Phlegm and Dampness.

TCM considers fat a direct product of Phlegm. Phlegm is an accumulated fluid condensed into a more solid form.

Poor diet or a malfunction in the spleen, kidneys, and/or liver causes Phlegm.

Phlegm Fat Formula Treats Your Horse’s Obesity and Fatty Tumors

Phlegm Fat Formula is a TCVM blend of 10 different Eastern herbs.

The herbs perform synergistically, balancing systems and meridians in the body.

However, Phlegm Fat Formula addresses the underlying causes of your horse’s illness or disease.

The underlying cause of any disease is an imbalance.

Therefore, Phlegm Fat Formula alleviates your horse’s imbalances and soothes the painful symptoms of illness and disease.

According to TCM theory, Phlegm Fat Formula heals by:

  • Clearing Damp
  • Transforming Phlegm

Dr. Xie based Phlegm Fat Formula on the ancient Chinese formula Er Chen Tang found in the text “Tai Ping Hui Min He Ji Ju Fang (Imperial Grace Formulary of the Tai Ping Era)” written in 1080 by Chen Shi-Wen et al.

Phlegm Fat Formula works best when combined with plenty of water and moderate exercise.
