Equine Pharmacognosy- Developing Equine Self Healing
We are very excited to offer you a new session for November 2018!
What is Pharmacognosy?
Zoopharmacognosy is the practice in which wild animals self medicate using an evolutionary adaptation in which their innate instinct enables them to communicate and relate with medicinal plants within their environment, to bring about health and well being. Unfortunately domestication has restricted the horse's opportunity to use his instinctive knowledge to select nature's medicines
Within this session we will look at the horses natural ability to self select plants and how we can help improve their welfare by offering the required plant based nutrition. We will study case evidence and discuss current responses.
Beth Chamberlain is a highly experienced Zoopharmacognosist and runs Equinepharmacognosy in Essex.
Beth lectures to college and university students, appeared on BBC Radio Suffolk and has written numerous articles. The subject of Applied Zoopharmacognosy is continually developing and Beth returns regularly to the Academy of Zoopharmacognosy to develop her knowledge but gives great thanks to the animals that have been her teachers.
Her goals are to take this work internationally which she will be doing whilst an invited speaker at the Animal Science and Veterinary Conference in Durban, South Africa in February 2019.
Its going to be a very interesting session and I cant wait!
