I am a journalist who specialises in science writing. I work for an agricultural and food and nutrition science institute where I write articles under the name Margaret Puls on breeding food for nutritional content and gut microbial nutrition.
For the past three and a half years I have been writing a book about the remarkable Australian pioneering naturopath Dorothea Snook and her gut-cleanse diet, which led me to uncover information about her trainer and mentor, Dr Alice Caporn, who trained in Boston and New Jersey alongside Frederick W Collins, Benedict Lust and the pioneers of the nature cure. Mrs Snook began training under Alice Caporn in 1944 and her diets date back to Benedict Lust and the father of the nature cure, the German monk Sebastian Kneipp.
I also write fiction, which is a great passion of mine, and I am interested in robotics, artificial intelligence, information and communications, people and culture. Please send me a message or contact me on Facebook or Twitter! I would love to hear from you.
