The Power of Plant Medicine: Strengthening the Immune System and Boosting Vitality
Plant medicine predates written human history as an approach to healing using herbs and foods to prevent and assist in the healing of various health conditions. In this class, we will look at medicinal properties of common herbs, foods, and medicinal mushrooms used for centuries to enhance the immune system, relieve allergies, address chronic health conditions, support detoxification, and maintain overall health. Topics discussed will include how to incorporate healthy foods and herbs into your diet, as well as tons of recipes, a cooking demo, and tastings of Chinese herbs to add to soups and salads.
