Stress and Adaptogenic Herbs
Saturday January 9th 10 am-12:00 pm
Covid and the previous 10 months have created a whole new meaning of stress. Throughout this last year, I have had people coming into the Shop and it seems the feeling of Stress is a prominent issue for many. We know that stress is an initiator and cofactor for much of our chronic degenerative diseases so getting our stress levels in balance is important-especially now that the Holidays are over, and we can take a moment to ourselves. Many know that Stress reduction techniques can be of great help, as can healthy relationships, good diet, and adequate sleep. One other key for reducing stress and enhancing well-being is the use of adaptogenic herbs. In this class we explore the rational and effective clinical use of each of the adaptogenic herbs, the differences between them and how they can be used to improve cognitive function, restore immune and endocrine balance and promote increased mental and physical well-being. Start your new year by creating balance and nourishing yourself with Herbs.
Gut Health and Optimizing Digestion
Saturday January 23rd 10 am-12:00 pm
In my practice as an herbalist, I believe real health begins with a properly working digestive system. If you suffer from indigestion, belching, gas, improper food digestion-then this class is for you. In this class we will cover digestive teas, bitters formulas, carminatives, and nutrition to support the healing of the gut lining, building of digestive prowess, and cultivation of a diverse and vibrant gut microbiome. We will taste different preparations, discuss specific indications for individual herbs, and make sample blends to take home.
