Caroline Ingraham founder of Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy (IAZ), has always had an enormous concern for the ethical treatment of animals and their welfare. Caroline has dedicated the last three decades to researching and observing how animals heal themselves; knowledge gained directly from working with the animals themselves. From this the Animal gateway series of workshops and books have been created to give you the most effective and natural method of working with your animals, enabling a new level of relationship and communication to exist between humans and animals. 

"Thank you so much for your teaching Caroline. You are the most humble, patient and inspiring teacher I have ever met. I couldn’t really hold my tears in class. My feelings are so complex that I don’t know how to put them into words. Your words and your attitude towards our beloved animals on the earth make me reflect myself as an owner and also as a human." Jo

"Anyone with a passion for animals cannot fail to be affected by the inspiration that pours out of Caroline when she gives a workshop. To see the reactions of animals to applied zoopharmacognosy happening before your eyes is incredible, and often very emotional - it is a way of communicating with them to help them heal themselves, and Caroline is the person who introduced and developed this applied science to the world. I am forever grateful to her for what she has taught me." Michael 

"After, what, 15 years or so, I continue to be in awe at this work and with you, Caroline." Beth

"Caroline truly is precious and I think should me nominated for an award for her services to animals and for bringing this amazing work that had previously been unknown into human world. A privilege to have trained with her." Gillian


Please note that Caroline has not accredited any other school or college to teach the Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy Method


Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy

Ingraham Applied Zoopharmacognosy (IAZ) 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 medical plants.
