The Team
Kate | Brendan | Lan| Ruth| Judith | Navniet | George | Cath | Robert (myself)

We have a lot of fun at Herbal-Treatments and I have a wonderful and loyal team of helpers. I thought it would be fun to introduce them to you who visit our web sites and who correspond with us in regard to your animal's or your own health problems.


Kate is another brunette, tall and slender and given to wearing elegant slacks and tops. She is the main giggler in our team and she is the most animal caring person I have ever known. Kate and her husband ran a small animal veterinary clinic around the clock for 14 years and she brought all this experience to us here after Michael died.

Kate is our small animal expert as well as having a very solid equine background, riding and handling horses since a teenager. She has a great deal more detailed knowledge and experience than the rest of us about small animal health problems. She has intimate knowledge of the veterinary medical approach to dealing with problems and she is the person you should ask to talk to regarding existing treatments and medications.

The love of Kate�s life is Raz (the short one) who is featured here along with his buddy LeCouteur who lost a battle with cancer earlier this year. Kate�s other much loved family members are Monty, a 16.1 hh Brown Thoroughbred, Hector, a Quarrion aged 13yrs and her 5 cows the oldest of which is 18yrs old and of course are all permanent pets.

Navniet is our web master. She is passionate about absolutely everything in her life. Last week photography, this week color therapy and new techniques in search engine optimization.

Navniet is a creature of a different generation and of a different culture. She speaks 6 languages and is able to do 4 or 5 things well, all at the same time. I often find her listening to music, sending emails and carrying on several conversations in a chat room while at the same time doing the most complex script revisions to our web site.

Navniet has taken on herbal-treatments in a very personal way. She is responsible for the success of our web site in the world of directories and search engines and she is constantly changing and upgrading the style and content of the page.

Cath is my partner. She is also a Reiki practitioner and Healer and she and I have worked on the hair analysis program together since we started, to provide this valuable service for difficult cases.

She has been involved with horses all her life and I rely on her for advice especially on training and handling and the effect of deficiencies in these areas, on the horses health and conformation.

Cath has a day job as a manager and counselor but her passion is dressage. Tarquin is her latest prot�g�. He is a 5yr old Cleveland Bay cross gelding whom she is working up through the levels at present and who is featured here.

Also known as Sandy, is me.

I am blessed with a loyal and enthusiastic team who in most cases can run the day to day herbal treatments business without me. I find myself spending more and more time writing and conducting online consultations with human patients around the world.

The team leaves me free to deal with my human patients and to manage and develop other projects. Currently these range from engineering and contracting to web based self-assessment counseling.

The Future:

Cath and I have aquired a 272 acre property just 10 minutes from Bathurst which is called Kellosheil Park and where we will establish our Holistic Equine Rehabilitation Center. This will allow our whole team to bring to bear their experience and skills in turning around the health of valuable horses whose health has broken down or have been traumatized or injured. We expect to be able to rehabilitate, retrain and return them fully fit in half the time normally taken with orthodox medical treatment, confining and spelling practices.

Kellosheil Park will also provide various levels of agistment, indoor and outdoor arenas, jumping arena, cross country and trecking trails and will be offered as a venue for all manner of competition and training events.
