Early September 2020 my horse suddenly started biting me when I girthed him up & being lethargic at times

Over 6 weeks he had got a lot worse, so on a friends reccomendation I called Sue at Collinson herbs & Equine Iridology, whom did an iridology analysis for my horse.

(I found the birth genetics passed on from his parents, extremely interesting)


Sue recommended I changed his bedding from  wheat straw bedding to Oat straw and to change his diet from processed food & less oils to a cleaner more natural diet.  I wormed him with Noverms and took her advice on herbal "Ulserban" at first twice a day for the 1st course and once a day for the 2nd course, never missing a day of feeding it to him.


Nearly 3 months passed and reading all about ulcers on the web I decided to have him scoped. After having to starve him for 16 hours -travelled through snow, to have him sedated causing sweating, eventually the camera reached his stomach & there was all these white blobs (like small cotton wool balls) which were scar tissue from the healed ulcers! The vet said he was now clear of ulcers with no red bleeds at all & no treatment needed, I was over the moon as his reccomended treatment would have been 11x more per tub - compared with the price of Ulserban. (Dec ’20) 

This scan clearly showed me her reports are accurate & Collinson Herbal products worked!!  I am over the moon with the result.

Thankyou. SB, Derbys.

I would highly recommend anyone to use these amazing products which can often cure the impossible. 
My lad is a rescue and he had a very heavy red worm burden when I got him which resulted in severe worm damage to his digestive system. Although he gained and maintained his weight it left him with a very bloated gassy tummy and liquid droppings constantly. I tried every feed and supplement imaginable with only temporary relief. My vet said there was very little they could do as what ever they gave him wouldn’t reach that far back in his digestive tract where the treatment was needed. 
I then spoke to sue who is a wealth of knowledge on nutrition and herbal treatments. Sue advised I try him on two different herbal treatments for two courses. 
I am over the moon to say my lads tummy is less swollen, he is less gassy and we have normal poo! Real shaped poo! Even pellets! I am shocked with how effective these herbs are. 
I can’t thank Collinson herbs enough for helping my boy. Just goes to show the untreatable is treatable and the unrepairable is repairable 😊 B.Walker. Yorkshire animal Physiotherapy  September 2018


After having experienced some wonderful mares over the years, we were saddened that our new Dartmoor pony turned into a hippo with horns whilst being in season! She wasn't nasty but became very tense, highly strung and generally seemed out of sorts. We were amazed that even after a week of being given Mare Corrective that our pony seemed so much more comfortable. She was once again relaxed enough to enjoy being groomed and was settled both out grazing and in he rstable. A brilliant natural product which we shall stick to and highly recommend.

Four years ago when Faith my friend and Iridologist saved my life, I began researching Equine Iridology.  It was non existent in the states.  Since then there are at least checking 100 Equine Iridologist in the states, all on the other side of the Mississippi.  Most of them trained by a woman in California who created her own charts etc. and no where near the background and education you carry,  there are also many fly by night courses that have suddenly popped up.
I am sure there may be some starting to pop up, but as far as I know I am the only (almost) Equine Iridologist on the East Coast.  I have a great deal of Education in human anatomy and biology, but of course turning it to the Eques world.  My next step as well as continuing to study Iridology is to become certified or licensed as an Equine Compounding Herbalist, to continue studying Equine anatomy and physiology.  To eventually teach, to really teach.  I guess my long trip around the mountain to get to the point...with my being the only Equine Iridologist (almost) this side of the states, there is room and need for a truly and highly educated Ellen Collinson here.  I most certainly desire to be a continued student of Ellen Collinson, to in years to come to teach others to continue on the legacy you have started.  I have done my homework!  I have done the research.  This was my shot and chance, and I studied and researched for a long time.  Money was in very, very short supply, and I had to be careful.  You are the best in the world, and that is why I went with studying under you, the real deal.  The equine world needs you to continue on.  If I am really lucky, before I leave this world, I might reach to a tiny percentage of the level you have attained.  You are the Equine worlds Dr. Jensen.
Your the best, as I said I did my homework!  Not only that, but I can tell you are kind, and your first love is to help horses, and help their people help their horses.  Greed is not at the core of your heart, but love.

On 15th October at Oldencraig Taylor Denness, 14 years old scored her first elementary win with 72.41% on her 6 year old 16.2 Negro gelding Amaro O.
"We discovered, thanks to Bridget Beresford Wright, who came an gave an Iridology assessment on 'Timmy' that he suffered from a sugar intolerance, so on Bridget's advice about the 'oat diet' we have started to feed him straights. Today, for the first time at a show he had energy without being uncontrollable, now when he drops the contact I can use my legs without feeling he will explode"

My name is Clare Cannon, I believe our mutual friend Janey Alexander has been telling you of the success I have achieved when feeding your herbs. I have used three of your products so far, the sarcoid tincture for a horse with warts around his eye that the vet told me I would never found a cure for. I had to give him two courses but the warts have now shrunk to an insignificant size. I have another horse that had botched surgery prior to coming to me that unfortunately has left his soft palate permanently displaced, he was also suffering pretty bad COPD as result of having foreign bodies getting into his airway. I put him on the respiratory herbs and after some pretty horrible green and yellow discharge he cleared up in about a week. Also last but not least was the horse that Janey probably told you about that fractured his carpal bone at the back of his knee. This little horse I got out of another training yard, the trainer couldn't get a tune out of him and the owners quit on him (they did give him two years), after one run for me he won a point to point by a distance never even coming out of a canter then unfortunately on his next start he got carried out of the race and came back injured with the fracture. Anyway on Janey's advice we put him on your calcium supplement plus a handful of comfrey every night in his feed. The vet told me that the bone would only heal with fibrous tissue therefore on x-ray it will always looked fractured but amazingly it has healed with bone. I have the copy of the x-rays on CD to give to you if you chose to see them or would like to use them.

I am now obviously a great fan of your products and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making the effort to put your knowledge into making such a good range of effective products, I appreciate it takes a lot of work, time and expense to bring together knowledge and a passion and make it available to others and I am sure that I am only one of many people that are grateful you have done so. Also I find your articles on your website very informative especially the one about the oat and alfa-a diet.

An overview is basically a 2 yr old gelding got an infection in a fore fetlock and tendon sheath that didn't respond to antibiotics - 2 x long courses of special ones too! In mid-December he was given only 3% chance of survival with less chance of being sound let alone competing as a well-bred show jumper. After 2 tubs of AntiB combined with distant bioresonance treatment and remedies he is completely sound. The regular vets are amazed and had asked when he had been shot as they weren't expecting a recovery. The infection burst out a couple of time and manuka honey was used topically and within a poultice. I have no doubt that the AntiB provided the necessary stimulation to the immune system to help the body cope with the infection and prevented any spread of infection to other joints.

Dear Ellen,
I feel I must email you with regard to your work on my mare Dolly. The mare had been put on the back burner for over a year due to injury and I must admit I was somewhat in denial of whether she ever would be any kind of a riding horse again, but fate brought you to me and after your findings by what appeared to me a very unusual way of diagnosis (iridology) and the fact that you prefered not to know the horses history I can honestly say for me was mind blowing, not only did you locate the sight of injury but also where a secondary condition was manifesting and was compounding the initial problem, you assured me that although the injury would never go there was actually no damage to the joint, which as you now know was my major concern. You as you may recall advised some osteopathic work on the secondary back condition and assured me that Dolly was in fact otherwise very well, This and this is where I thank you most, gave me the confidence to face the fact that Dolly would never be certifiably sound but that she could still make a perfectly good hack/fun horse. So just to let you know for your records the osteopath came and confirmed that the stifle joint was actually fine although would always be somewhat compromised by the actual injury. She also found and confirmed the secondary back condition that through her manipulations and my continued suppling excersises has given me back my riding horse and one that I am confident to push. So thanks again Ellen and I am happy to promote your work to anyone, especially to those of us that live in rural France and have little or no access to modern diagnostic tools short of travelling the hundreds of kilometres to the nearest horse hospital. All that information by looking in a horse's eye, I for one am impressed.

I was introduced to Iridology by one of Ellen’s trained and qualified Iridologists in 2008 when I was rehabilitating ex-racehorses and re-training them for another career in life. I was instantly fascinated by how much this subject could tell me about the horses in my care and knew that I immediately needed to find out more, I contacted Ellen Collinson and enrolled on the course.
The course is very well structured and teaches you step by step how to understand what is there showing in the horses eye, and reveals how much you can find out about your horse in order to help to heal and rehabilitate the animal, and avoid future problems. It still amazes me now how incredibly consistent and accurate the information can be and it helps me every day with these horses in my job to prepare them mentally and physically for a different job in life.
Due to my busy schedule it took me a year to finish the course. It was a great learning curve and it is now helping me to give these horses and others a much better chance at living a healthy and fulfilling career. Some go on to be dressage horses, some long distance/pleasure rides, some event horses and many just very pleasurable hacks but all leave here very healthy as a result of what I can discover through the Iridology and I often wonder where I would be if I had not had the privilege of being introduced to such a worth while and fascinating subject.
It is totally non-intrusive and one of the best diagnostic tools I have ever discovered. It helps me every day to do my job here better.

"I would have no hesitation in recommending Ellen Collinson's expertise in Iridology and herbal remedies, both of which I have used when I felt it necessary"

Dear Ellen,
As you know, we have been using your NoVerms herbal wormer for some time with excellent results, especially as one of our event horses is allergic to chemicals but the reason I am writing to you is to thank you so much for introducing us to two of your products - the Circulation Tonic and the Kidney herbs.
Unfortunately last september, one of our shetland ponies was extremely poorly, at first we thought it was another bout of laminitis but we soon realised that it was a lot more serious.Her left shoulder kept on clicking and then dislocating and she was finding it extremely difficult to move forward. The vet put her on a long course of bute but this did not really alleviate the pain and discomfort she was in. I talked to Ellen about the pony's problems, especially as her health was deteriorating with exceptionally cold weather in December and Ellen suggested we try her Circulation Tonic. We have never seen such a vast improvement in her condtion in just five days - unbelievable! Our pony started trotting out to the paddock, on the concrete yard, where before she could hardly move. She was so much happier - trotting around the paddock and then cantering and bucking as well! The Tonic has given her a new lease of life.
We also have cause for celebration, as once again Ellen's Kidney Herbs have proved to be invaluable in helping Suzie, our 17 hand event horse, who had been written off by the vet, as lazy and we should get after her with a bigger crop and put on bigger spurs. She just did not want to go forward and would just run out of energy. We finally asked Ellen to visit the yard in December and in using iridology,she could determine that Suzie had a lot wrong with her. We used Blood Detox Herbs and the Kidney Herbs with excellent results, Suzie actually could move forward! As soon as she started to look stilted and crabby behind, we started her on another course of Kidney Herbs and now she is flying! After her first dressage lesson this year, she is like a different horse, we never knew she could go so well. Once again Ellen's herbs have really worked, if only we had used them years ago!
Many thanks again for all your help,
Kind regards
Jenny Curtis

“I have used Ellen Collinson’s herbal products and employed her system of Iridology for several years, and have found them to work with good results. I have found the Respiratory treatment very effective in preventing and curing respiratory problems and the Anti-B treatment a strong and reliable Antibiotic.”

“I have used Ellen Collinson’s services as an iridologist and have also used her herbal products, and found the Digestive Bitters to be excellent in the case of poor appetites or weak digestion”.

"I have used several of the products from the Ellen Collinson Herbal Products range and have been very pleased with the results. The product that I have been using recently is the Anti-B. I have used this as an alternative to Antibiotics on horses that had coughs and respiratory problems. I have found the results excellent; the horses stopped coughing within 4-5 days of being given the herbs and there is no withdrawal period. I am happy to recommend this product"

"At first, I was sceptical about using Herbal Bute and Kidney Herbs form the Ellen Collinson Herbal Products Ltd. range for Dikiloo my horse I took to the Sydney Olympic Games as I was cautious about feeding him anything different.
I was recommended to use them following a consultation with Ellen Collinson, the equine Iridologist. Ellen identified that Dikiloo had a blockage on his left side, around the kidney area. She asked me if he was sore in that area and also if he was a 'bit short' on the left when ridden. I confirmed both these observations. As she had so accurately described him without ever seeing him move, I decided to give the herbs a go.
The course of Kidney Herbs and Herbal Bute lasted a month, but I noticed the difference within a few days. Dikiloo has become looser and has more energy. He also looks fantastic. Dikiloo is now getting ready for the National Finals in a few days time and I feel he really is up to the job."
