The EquiNatural Blog

I've been scribing these blog posts from the beginning, back in 2008-ish, before I became a medical herbalist and while my vertical learning curve was still barely off the mark!

Which means that some of the more ancient posts may well also be off the mark these days, as the latest science hits the headlines.

As I say on our Herbal Nutrition intro page, the pages in this Blog section are intended purely as a sharing of knowledge and information from my own personal studies and research, and of course caring for my herd of adorable misfits for over 5-decades 😉

And so much more ... Blog Categories
