I love the 5ET & thoroughly enjoyed the course thanks Nayana! Interestingly, I have 5 indoor animal family members & each displays a different element type, so it’s been fascinating & helpful using the system. It has helped me deeply understand their personalities & body clocks. I have Wood & Metal dogs, plus Water, Fire & Earth cats. I’ve used 5ET to help me choose short lists of botanticals to offer to them to self select. I’ve also found it useful for choosing food types & training styles for my dogs.

I’ve been following the 5 element theory since I learnt it from you many years ago, Nayana, but not as closely as I could. However, with my present 3 year old Boxer, Juno, I really applied it because she has aortic stenosis and suffers a bit emotionally and physically when she comes in season. (I obviously can’t spay her because of her heart problem.) Your questionnaire in your latest book about oils all animals is brilliant. And the next time I offered her oils, I chose a few to support her heart but with emphasis on her elements. (She’s a combination of Fire and Earth.) I always use the 5ET as a yardstick when working with other people’s dogs but intend to be more precise and specific. One advantage of lockdown is having the time to devote to learning even more about the oils in relation to the 5ET but also to define a more in-depth approach to my dog training combining the use of oils and the other therapies I’ve learnt over the years. Thank you very much.

I haven’t even gotten into the course yet, but just using the EOs for Animals book quiz I learned my Nala is a Fire dog. I offered her EOs that I wouldn’t have chosen based on her symptoms. Seeing a wonderful transformation. Excited to learn more

I try to use the 5ET as much as possible with clients animals, it always fascinates people when I explain about the quiz and its accuracy
