Have you wondered which herbs to take right when you are starting to feel that first sign of a cold? Or which herbs to take to boost the immune system daily, and which to take when you are sick with the flu? The plethora of herbal immune boosters and anti-microbial herbs can be overwhelming!
Join nationally acclaimed herbalist Juliet Blankespoor to learn how to reach for the right herbs at the right time, for yourself and your family. As a class, we will explore various herbs that help keep the immune system in healthy working order, as well as immune-stimulating and anti-microbial herbs to help our body fight infection. Juliet will share several of her time-tested protocols for easing respiratory infections, head colds, influenza, strep throat, whooping cough, and more. You will gain a deeper understanding of which herbs will be most valuable for you to have handy this upcoming cold and flu season, as well as which herbs should be avoided for extended use.
In addition, Juliet will share some of her favorite tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms, prepared as teas, syrups and soups, that support us in staying healthy. You will taste various preparations, learn which recipes will work well for you, and receive instructions for preparing your own immune-enhancing remedies at home.
