ECR’s Mission & Testing
Our Mission began in 1996, on a cold night in the Kiamichi Mountains of Oklahoma. The Four of us (ECR), once a year since 1983, had taken time from our busy businesses to spend a week riding on Wild Horse Trail ride. It was on such a ride in 1993, we formed a partnership between our 4 horse farms and began marketing our horses’ worldwide.
That night, in 1996 as we sat warming ourselves at the campfire, our concerns were for a fellow rider, who earlier lost her horse from Colic! We had just started to share our own stories about this Killer, when our friend Tim, sat down to tell us about his formula, and this formula, which first ignited our hearts, later became our Mission to “Provide it as the Gift Of Life for horses with colic!”
Testing of ECR
The following includes the final notes and results from ECR’s own 1996-1997 farm study and that of a Testing Facility from 1997-1999. For each study ECR and 8 other owners volunteered their horses as test subjects to prove comprehensively the effectiveness of each Part of the formula in ECR.
01/30/1997: A Nova Scotia Testing Facility to conduct a formal study chose 14 horses from 200 applicants by age, sex, breed and their diagnosed chronic history with impaction, gas, sand and mild spasmodic colic.
Each of their owners was required to participate by keeping them on controlled feeding, exercise and worming regiment. They were instructed how to keep an accurate time response record and note any abnormalities, reactions, physical changes as their horses ingested each part of the formula.
Each horse in the study prior to acceptance and after it concluded was required to have a complete physical, blood work up, x-rays and ultra sound to insure the horse was in perfect health. These are side notes taken at the 1st meeting before and after the Facility concluded their study.
February 13, 1997, a think tank meeting was held to determine a definitive plan of approach. Attendees were the clients, the lab director who developed the final formula and the team ECR assigned to conduct the study to henceforth and as agreed:
- Test using the same laws of Cause and Effect the lab developed the final Formula to discontinue a normal colic.
- To gage an accurate response time, each part of the formula would be divided into its 4 basic combination of ingredients, placed in 4 separate bottles and labeled with the effect it has on a Cause as established by the lab.
- An owner is labeled as an observer during the study, sent twenty, 4 bottles sets of the formula, prior to the study and fully instructed in how to properly administer them, using a 1-4 sequence, 5-10 minutes apart. This method will produce an as ingested response time that accurately determines, during a bout how and when each part of the formula effects a cause.
05/24/1999: ECR’s own notes and conclusions from both studies. Today, the last of 2 study evaluations of our formula was successfully completed.
The 1st study on the formula began in 1996 and was completed in 1997. We used 5 of our horses and 2 of a friend with diagnosed chronic history of either colic from impactions, gas, spasmodic episodes or sand. The testing grounds were our farms and 1 of a friend. Over the 1 year study, 3 horses had 7 bouts with impactions, 2 of which were sand based, 1 had a bout of gas and 1 had spasms. The formula ended 9 bouts in 6 horses within 52-138 minutes and the horse that had sand colic ended both bouts in 90-200 minutes. Within 10-30 minutes, after ingesting the formula, all 7 horses had returning and/or stronger bilateral bowel sounds and no side effects during or after the 11 bouts.
May 23, 1999 facility post study notes:
The average response time for 5 Vets called by observers to attend 5 subjects, after they ingested the formula, was 2-3 hours. Each vet, after performing an exam on a subject, stated in writing the subject presented with no physical signs of colic. Out of 9 subjects, whose observers did not call a vet, 3 had events of sand colic, which ended within 60-200 minutes and 6 had impaction, gas, and mild spasmodic bouts that ended within 52-138 minutes. None of the 14 subjects during this study, after ingesting the formula, required further medical treatments or surgical intervention.
Prior to the study in 1997, ECR’s lab made up an packaged, 4 bottles containing a part of the formula, into 20 sets and gave them to 8 observers that had been instructed how to administer the 4 bottles to their subjects during a bout, using a 1-4 sequence, 5-10 minutes apart. This established a beginning and end to a part and its process as ingested. We could then calculate when, how and which of the body’s biological and physiological functions naturally integrated with it to effect and eliminate one of the 4 causes which continue a bout.
Previous studies on ionic solutions established them as acids, bases and salts that exist suspended in fluids. In horses when the longitudinal and circular muscle layers lining the bowels become dehydrated, these solutions die and destabilize conductive energy within the cells.
Motility (movement) then slows or goes into a state of stasis, ingesta impacts and a bout of constipation (colic) clinically begins. 90%+/- of horses in this condition that die, after being treated by a vet, upon a postmortem exam, had a simple ingesta impaction that formed within the Pelvic Flexure.
The following conclusions were reached on each part, its process and effect within the body, using the written records and visual observations of 8 observers during 31 bouts of colic.
Information about Part 1 and its process in the formula was acquired from the research notes of the Doctor of Marine Biology who developed it. He concluded as it was quickly absorbed by samples of hard dead organic or inorganic tissue, food, grass, dirt, etc. it reduced them to a pudding consistency causing no further degradation of each sample as the process within it ended.
Part 2 and its process, drew fluid into the dehydrated bowels. Dehydration halted Motility before or after each impaction formed and destroyed ionic solutions. As the process ended, hydrated bowels were ready for replacement solutions, gums turned pink, but no movement was noted until the process in Part 3 began.
The Process in Part 3 restored necessary ionic solutions to regain Motility. This was noted by bowel sounds, returning or growing stronger within an average of 10-30 minutes. Bowel activity continued to increase every 20-40 minutes, indicating this was the final process needed to end the bout as the softened impaction, gas and other bowel contents passed from the anus.
The Process in Part 4, as the body integrated with it, throughout a bout, continued to dissipate and pass excess methane gas and relieve distention and pressure as visually noted by a reduction in a subjects distended abdomen. As the gorged bowel distend outward, crushing of the blood supply to adjoining organs, the dying nerve endings within these organs will increase abdominal pain levels. We instructed observers how to measure this factor so it could be added into our final evaluation by setting it on a scale of 1 for mild discomfort to 10 exhibiting violent behavior with mutilation. Visually what occurred in impaction subjects as distended abdomens returned to a normal state, pain subsided and various amounts of gas were passed even after a bout ended.
This was not evident in subjects with gas colic who passed gas, returned to good health the 1-2 hours latter passed normal manure indicating the bout was not impaction based.
During the 31 bouts, bowel motility returned to normal within 10-30 minutes, bouts ended within 52-200 minutes and each horse quickly returned to good health. The urine and blood samples tested clean of drugs in each subject and 6 subjects had a bout of impaction colic before a show or race the competed in after their bout ended!
Since then, our company has helped to save thousands of horses. We continue to spread the good news to horse owners that colic does not have to be feared any longer.
We take pride in empowering horse owners with the one tool they have always needed to stop colic right in its tracks.
