In this hour-long class we will go through foundational information for supporting your immune system through the winter. We will review basic concepts, go through the healing mechanism of a fever as an example and discuss popular and potent medicines like echinacea, elderberry, reishi, astragalus, wild cherry bark, thyme and others to stock your home medicinal cabinets with. I will also outline a few simple formulas to provide examples for how I would treat common colds, coughs, sinus infections and sore throats.
You will be emailed a link the day before class.
