A practical guide for taking care of the people around you
Do you want...
- to take care of your loved ones simply and safely?
- to use herbs to manage many of the experiences encountered in typical family life?
- to give good, simple, effective advice to clients?
Did you know...
- you do not need a large pharmacy to take care of your household?
- you can manage many "emergencies" at home that often send caregivers and their loved ones to Urgent Care?
- herbal remedies that work on children also work on adults?
Lise Wolff wants the world to be a happier, more sustainable place for everyone. This course is designed to help folks become more self-sufficient and provide the ability to take care of themselves and their families rather than always running to urgent care.
Lise’s many reviews always comment on her practical approach. In the Family Herbalist Course, Lise clearly describes how to actually use the remedies she suggests with complete and clear case histories. Photos of the plants discussed are included, as well as a discussion of how to prepare the remedies and dosing for infants to the elderly.
Who is this course for?
This series is designed for people who want to simply and safely take care of their families (including the adults in the house), as well as people who spend time with babies and children regularly. Or practitioners who just want to give good, simple, effective, advice and also learn many tried and true specifics. The series is friendly to all skill levels.
This course is for all levels. There is something for everyone!
"The Family Herbalist" is a stand-alone course but ties directly to Lise Wolff’s Plant Walk Series. In her online plant walks, you can learn to identify, harvest, and prepare all of the plants discussed in this series.
