Andrew Mason is an expert in Eastern Alchemy. He started studying holistic medicine 20 years ago, completing his training as an Ayurveda practitioner in 2006. He then undertook a unique and intensive apprenticeship in the East, learning the closely guarded processes involved in the manufacturing of these ancient remedies. Since his return to the U.K., Andrew has undertaken the task of recording and cataloguing these traditional processes, preserving these techniques which in some cases would have remained as tenuous oral traditions only.
