Herbal Support to Digest Your Best! Plant Profiles   June 17th, 2019 6pm-7:30
Digestion, AYE! People, it's a mess; with today's processed foods and side effects from medication combined with the chemicals in our earth, air and water, it has a multitude of people's digestive systems crying the blues! We have IBS, ulcers, constipation, poor absorption, cramps, bloating, and diarrhea. It's a wonder how we can can even leave the house, (and I quite honestly I know some people who sometimes can't).

Hey here's a thought! Let's find out what plants we can implement in our lives that will allow us to feel better and support digestion. This is serious...

This is the second part of a series of 3 materia medica classes. You do not need to have taken the first class to come. Nor are you required to take the next one on the Endocrine system...

Herbalist Merihelen will be going over her favorite herbs addressing the Digestive system.

This class will be ideal for those who want to delve a little deeper in using herbs that have been historically used to assist in conditions as:

-Chronic stomach pain from stress both physical and emotional (the body / mind response)

Fight Fatigue, Restore the Adrenals: Plant Profiles  June 24th, 2019 6pm-7:30

This is our final series of three Materia Medica (Plant profile) classes. We have become familiar with the Nervous system, Digestive system and are now moving on to the Adrenal System. 


This class may be of interest for all those who are sick and tired of being sick and tired; it's an informative class for those who feel like their love life has plummeted and that their hormones are acting more like a natural disaster. Who DOESN'T this happen to? Who DOESN'T feel this way from time to time? Can we do ANYTHING about it?

At one point or another it just seems like the weight of life can roll right over us. Sometimes we find ourselves giving up and giving in to the mental, emotional and physical stressors of the daily grind. It's about that time when fatigue and imbalance can take hold of our mind and body.

Thing is, we forget is that we are equipped with an arsenal of plants to support, nourish, and restore our bodies from chronic stress, brain fog, weight gain, hormone balance and anything else life throws our way.

You can be your best. You can find energy. You can handle life and its stressors like a BOSS.

Let me teach you about my favorite herbs that can help you get there.

You are welcome to come even if you didn't attend the first two Materia Medica classes.
Prepayment is preferred.
