Applied Zoopharmacognosy Workshop – Sunday 26 April

Posted by Michelle On March - 26 - 2015


I am delighted to introduce to you my dear friend Rachel Windsor-Knott, who will be delivering an Applied Zoopharmacognosy Workshop here in Cambridge.

Applied Zoopharmacognosy enables self-medicative behaviour in domesticated or captive animals by offering plant extracts that would contain the same, or similar constituents to those found in an animal’s natural environment. The practice encourages and allows an animal to guide its own health, since unlike their wild counterparts, captive and domesticated animals rarely have the opportunity to forage on medicinal plants.  Once the animal has selected its remedy, it will then guide the session by inhaling it, taking it orally, or by rubbing a part of its body into it.

For those of you who know Rachel will be aware that she is a qualified practitioner in Animal Self-Medication (Applied Zoopharmacognosy), dog behaviourist and canine communication coach. She used to run her own dog boarding and cat care business and was a behaviour assessor at Battersea Dogs and Cats home.

Rachel believes that rather than just treating the symptom which can lead to a later reoccurrence or even worsening as the ‘problem’ has just been suppressed, she takes a holistic approach:

Looking beyond the symptoms and getting to the root cause and releasing it. The skills and knowledge she will pass onto you will stay with you for life. They will benefit any other animal which comes into your life. She will enable you to take back the responsibility of helping your own animal.

Location – Cambridge – 10.30 – 4.30

£30 per person – Non Refundable.

We look forward to meeting you and please share with anyone you feel may be interested.

Warm wishes
