Wild health is robust, adaptable, and self-reliant.

WildHealth BodyWork is based on how health is maintained away from pharmaceutical drugs, surgery, and supplements. Wild animals maintain their health differently from us domesticated humans in post-industrial societies.

For one thing, wild animals cannot afford to wait until they are unwell before taking remedial action. Natural selection favours those individuals who strive to constantly maintain health.

Achieving a natural vitality involves taking responsibility for our own well-being.

Rooted in a background of scientific research in animal behaviour and physiology, and willing to explore whatever works, WildHealth BodyWork uses an integrative approach drawing on traditional and modern practices of human health-maintenance. 

Practices which integrate physical, emotional, and mental cultivation are important for long term health management. Getting ourselves moving using mindful processes is increasingly important in modern sedentary lifestyles. More details…

Receiving regular assessments and treatments from competent bodyworkers can identify emerging health problems before they become serious. This makes it possible to make proactive changes in our lifestyle to maintain health.  More details…

Wild animals have evolved and developed a range of health maintenance strategies to enhance survival. They therefore make excellent models of a healthy lifestyle. My original training as a biologist lead me to research and publish the first book on animal self-medication WILD HEALTH.  Natural selection has favored those animals who find health-modulating substances (nutritional, non-nutritional, and medicinal) in the wild.
