Winter Health Using Preventative Folk Medicine

Around the world, for thousands of years before Echinacea was used ad nauseum, many easily available herbs, foods and lifestyle habits encouraged people to stay robust and strong throughout the winter months. This class will cover many of the easily available folk remedies, foods and herbs to keep you healthy throughout winter.

The world (and likely your current kitchen) is filled with simple but powerful helpers to keep our body robust and healthy in the winter. 

In this class you learn how to prepare and use remedies that you already have around you in:
• the “weeds”
• cultivated vegetables of the fall
• trees
• your kitchen

That means - you don’t have to buy a single additional item - although elderberry is pretty darn useful!

This class will remind you of all that you already have, that can support your health, during the winter and any other time, for people of all ages!


Did you know that ejecting phlegm out of your orifices is actually a healthy immune response?  

Come ready to have your assumptions about weak and strong immune systems turned upside down!
