Thursday December 17, 2020 at 7-9pm Atlantic Time (6-8pm EST)

How do you choose the most effective herbs for your immune health? Herbs stimulate and regulate different parts of the immune system and "immune support" can mean many different things. Come learn some basics about immune function and how to differentiate your immune herbs so your herbal self-care can be as effective as possible.

A Constitutional Approach to Chronic Pain

Chronic pain has many causes, and can be mysterious in origin. The medical system has tools to help people cope for a time, but generally does not offer a long-term solution. Herbalists can use energetic constitutional assessment to determine appropriate herbal support for each individual person. In this class we will explore: reasonable short and long-term goals; differentiating herbs and strategies for different presentations; the roles of sleep, digestion, and stress in chronic pain processes; and complimentary supportive therapies.

Herbs and Hormones

How can we assess a person’s hormone profile and recommend approprate herbs for them? Differentiating hormone imbalances and the hormonal effects of herbs allows us to choose an effective protocol for each person’s health goals. We will discuss specific indications for herbs that affect sex hormones, and review relevant physiology. This class will be taught through a gender-affirming and trans-positive lens, including discussion about safe and complementary use of herbs with hormone supplementation for gender affirmation.
