This Saturday, May23, 2015, The Ecology Center presents “Home Remedies & Herbal Medicine Workshop”. Learn how to make use of the healing and long term health benefits of alternative and herbal medicine.
Herbology (herbal medicine) is extremely effective, gentle to both people and the environment, non-addictive, natural, and sustainable. It is virtually cost-free as your medicine cabinet can be sourced from your garden. Understanding the medicinal value of plants and the best ways to use them can keep your family, community, and the environment healthy.
Join the Ecology Center for this intensive 4 hour alternative healing and herbology hands-on workshop. You will gain accessible and practical knowledge on alternative ways to treat simple and more complex health conditions.
Start by learning about a few simple alternative ways to deal with simple headaches, allergies and injuries.
Explore the garden, a few medicinal herbs and their uses, and engage in a hands-on herbal medicine making lesson.
Discuss culinary plants that work in your medicine cabinet including sage, rosemary, thyme, garlic, and hyssop among others.
Gather in the orchard and learn how to use apples, peaches, lemons and more to make medicine.
Make and take home an herbal medicine that fits your needs and start your own Natural Medicine Chest.
This popular workshop occurs just once a year. Register now for the opportunity to learn at home remedies from two highly qualified experts in the field of natural healing.
Dr. Doug has over 30 years of experience in healing as a chiropractor and applied kinesiologist. His passion, research, and years of practice with herbology and food as medicine are integral elements in his approach to health. He is a vital part of the education provided by The Ecology Center, through his contributions of research, writing, and class instruction.
Rebecca Altman is a herbalist and writer who has been practicing herbalism for 9 years, and studying for even longer. She’s had the great fortune to learn from some of the most brilliant people in modern herbalism— Kiva Rose, Jim McDonald, Matthew Wood— and the even greater fortune to have spent a lot of time working with the plants she regularly gathers from the wild, learning their secrets from observing their patterns. Her approach to herbalism is in looking at the connections between things— between humans and the planet, between humans and each other, and between abstract concepts and grounded practices, to make them accessible to all of us. She writes about herbalism and the human condition at www.cauldronsandcrockpots.com and she sells her herbal creations at www.kingsroadapothecary.com.
