Have you taken an active role in becoming knowledgeable about Lyme Disease? What are you doing to protect yourself ? Do you have a game plan about what to do if and when you get bitten by a tick?
Join Minnesota Herbalist Carol Jacobs for a discussion and outdoor walk focused on Lymes understanding, preparedness, prevention, and after-bite care.
In these Lyme Times planning ahead makes sense. Understanding Lyme can be confusing - information in the media doesn’t always match what we see and experience. For example, Fall and early Winter are active times for ticks despite what we may have been told. Lyme awareness & preparation is more than tick ID - it includes immune system supports plus gathering & preparing herbs for both prevention & after-bite care.
We'll start indoors to talk, listen and learn and then head outdoors where Carol will help identify plants with an emphasis on those that can be useful for Lyme. We will talk about, and hopefully find, herbs for creating herbal repellents and for basic Lyme first aid.
