Description

Immune System, Lymphatic System, & Skin Self-Care

This weekend we’ll be looking at actions, herbs, protocols, and recipes for immune, lymphatic and skin self-care. We strive to give you a better understanding of the difference between acute and chronic disease processes and care as well as a basic capacity to apply the knowledge you develop for safe self-care and in-home use.

Saturday, December 1, 10 am-5 pm: We will begin the class weekend with an ‘energetic perspective’ on the season of winter and look at ways to keep our immune system healthy throughout the year. In the afternoon we’ll cover an array of immune support herbs and explore herbal protocols for auto-immune conditions. We’ll finish the day with a survey of medicinal mushrooms known for their immune modulation actions. These include Reishi, Shiitake, Maitake, Chaga, Turkey-tail among others.

Sunday, December 2, 10 am-5 pm: The day will begin with a focus on infectious medicine, concentrating on the herbal anti-microbial, anti-fungal and diaphoretic herbs for fever management, influenza and the common cold as well as insect-borne diseases such as Lyme. We'll continue to build our immune herbal materia medica and cook up some immune support Elderberry syrup and Garlic-Ginger Oxymel to keep the bugs at bay! A list of other immune boosting herbal recipes will also be given out. Last but not least, we’ll review the lymphatic system and skin. Classic diaphoretic & lymphatic herbs will be covered and herbal blends for psoriasis, eczema, burns and wounds.

Come and join our Foundations of Herbalism Certification through the Mid-Atlantic School of Herbalism at the Smile Herb Shop. This certification course is taught in executive format, one (1) weekend (Saturday & Sunday, 10 am-5 pm) each month (except August). Assignments and study between classes are required with some online content. A study group via web-conference is available once a month between classes. Classes are recorded, so if missed can be made up. The one-year program leads to a Foundations of Herbalism Certificate.

For those who are interested in clinical practice, students can continue on for a second year of study to gain a Professional Herbalism Certification. This advanced course also consists of 1 weekend a month, over a period of 12 months with the final 6 months, being a clinical component. If both years are completed with accompanying assignments and case studies, students receive a Diploma of Clinical Therapeutic Herbalism.

Payment is made, on a monthly-basis via Eventbrite with each month costing $199 for a total of $ 2,189.00 for each entire year.
