Holistic Remedies are an increasingly popular alternative to Western medicine. Have you ever gotten a fever, ear ache, bee sting, rash or a bad cold and wanted to deal with it naturally? Then this is the class for you. A little bit of knowledge is all you need to get started on your path to herbal solutions. We will review many different but universal situations in which you can treat yourself with herbs and everyday items you have in your house. From allergies to an upset stomach, we’ve got you covered. While many herb classes can be intensive, this course has been designed to give you the basics in a simple and easy way.
For the longest time I had health issues that doctors couldn’t seem to fix. And I started becoming really allergic to basic over the counter medicines. (Not to mention prescription pharmaceuticals) Taking some basic herb classes at the Self-Heal School in San Diego, CA changed my life.
I started off by going to a pre-clinic session held by one of their herbalists to see what holistic remedies were really all about. They did a thorough consultation and sent me home with a month’s worth of herbs and detailed instructions. In two weeks the stomach issues that had been plaguing me for 4 years went away. I couldn’t believe it and suddenly wanted to know more about healing my body with plants.
I ended up taking a few classes to get a basic working knowledge of herbs. I hate to say it but my first class was horrible! Everyone else knew so much more than me and I didn’t think I’d ever understand things like chemical constituents or how to calculate the proper formulas for each herb. But I stuck with it and wouldn’t you know it – suddenly I was smart! I even decided to take the full 230 hour Herbal Certification program that was offered. What I learned about plants and how to use them for healing has gotten me though a lot of health issues that I would have otherwise had to suffer though, or ingest medication that would have made me sick.
Knowing the basics that I teach in this class is a good jumping off point for anyone who is interested in a more natural approach. However, as always, know when to use your herbs and when you need professional medical attention. Like I always say, if you’re having a heart attack, don’t call me. Call your doctor! While natural remedies are quite helpful, please remember there’s a time and a place for western & eastern medicine.
