In both the naturopathic and allopathic worlds, "herbal antibiotics" and other immune uses of plants are becoming increasingly popular. However, there are both prudent and dangerous ways to utilize herbs in both the treatment and prevention of infections. Therefore, whether we are using them with our kids, our pets or our patients, a working knowledge of how herbs work and do not work during illness is a necessary part of any education in plant medicine. 

During this class, we will discuss a wide range of different infections and ailments and how we can use herbs effectively to aid in healing. We will also have a conversation about how herbs should not be used, when to ask for help and how to maneuver the vast, ever-growing world of nutraceutical commerce that promises a "natural" version of our pharmacological antiseptics.

Space is limited to 10 live participants but livestream and recorded options are available! When you register please specify how you will be joining class.
