Event description

Description

Second (2 of 4) session of the 2017 UHS Fall Speaker Series.

Naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals' inherent self-healing. One such approach is botanical medicine, which has been in use since ancient times. Based on the use of plants and plant extracts, these “medicines from the earth” can be substitutes for other treatments or drugs, or used in conjunction with more traditional approaches. They are often used within the context of more holistic approaches such as dietary changes, exercise programs, and stress reduction methods.

This session will discuss herbs and other botanical medicines, as well as supplements, and how to use them to address common complaints, heal illness and injury, and maintain good health.

Speaker: AnnAlisa Behling, ND, Naturopathic Doctor at Holistic Care Approach
