Dr. Jamie LaPrairie Beale, PHD, will give an in-depth, full of content presentation on the gut, how it works, what happens when it becomes "leaky gut" and how to restore it. Good health starts in your gut. The GAPS Protocol helps people alleviate pain, allergies, and chronic illnesses that many doctors aren't trained to get to the root of.
So you want to go beyond the basics of herbal medicines? You are able to match an herb to a symptom, now learn what all the actions of each herb mean and depending on the person, figure out the best combination of herbs to address all of their symptoms. Antiviral, Immune Modulators, Sedative, Anodyne are different herbal actions and we will define many of these and how to use what herb when. Herbs work best when combined with other supporting herbs in a formula. Make an individualized tea formula to take home. This is not a beginner class, you must have a basic knowledge, taken a previous class from our Instructor or attended our class Herbal Medicine 101 Tuesday May 9th, 2017
