Come and explore the history of Western Culture’s antibiotics and the use of our natural allies: Herbal Alternatives to Antibiotics.
We will discuss what good bacteria are and why we need some, why bother with antibiotics, and explore herbal alternatives to antibiotics. I will keep this very simple for the everyday person wanting to have access to herbal alternatives from your local herb store, to the grocery store to wild-crafting.
Plants have been used as healing medicines before history was even recorded. Throughout the world indigenous cultures have taken advantage of the amazing healing powers of plants. Modern medical researchers have confirmed the healing powers of plants that have been used for thousands of years.
We will look at systemic herbs that can be useful in treating systemic infections such as resistant staph, MRSA, tuberculosis and malaria. Non-systemic herbs for treatment of infections of the GI tract, urinary tract and skin as well as food poisoning bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella. Synergistic herbs that increase the activity of other herbs that can boost the inactive resistant bacteria, have mechanisms to increase the presence of antibacterial agents in the body and enhance immune function.
Many people are dying of bacterial infections that used to be curable a few years ago and the amount of drug resistant bacteria is growing. About three million people with antibiotic resistant infections are admitted to the hospital every year. Two million people are infected while visiting the hospitals for routine medical procedures every year. The number of people infected by resistant bacteria is increasing.
No Show Fee: Due to the fact that there are members throughout Meetup that RSVP and do not show with out notifying organizers, or say they can't make it at the last minute we will be charging a NSF (No Show Fee) of $20.00. If this NSF fee is not paid within one week after the workshop you will be banned from the community, it's that simple. We hold a high standard of ethics for all meetup members here or other groups. If you can not attend you must notify WoMN at LEAST two days in advance so that another student can come because our meetups fill up fast and there are people waiting for a spot. IF you become ill, or something tragic happens beyond your control please call or text WoMN asap at [masked] so we don't hold the class up waiting for you. Thank you.
