A 6-week program of 3-hour classes (every two weeks) (Part 1 of II) Dates and times may change - Maximum 8 students.
Previously treatable bacterial diseases are now becoming resistant to antibiotic measures, due in large part to the massive use of antibiotics in factory farms and overuse in conventional medicine . This is a hands-on course of study based on the book, "Herbal Antibiotics, Natural Alternatives for treating Drug-Resitant Bacteria" by Stephen Harrod Buhner. Over an 8-week period we will study the main resistant organisms, according to Buhner, and the diseases they cause, and how to create homemade herbal remedies with proven antibiotic actions. Wherever possible, we will forage for our own wild herbs and process them together, creating a unique and viable reserve of natural herbal remedies for personal use. Nine plant groups will be covered.
Each session will be 3 hours long; sometimes indoors and other times in the field. There may be some extra costs for materials as well as you may need to provide your own alcohol or other material for making tinctures.
I am accepting 8* students to work with me in this program. No previous experience is required; all we ask is for enthusiasm, fairness, respect and equality in the group. (*Meetup will show as "9 Going" because they include me in their count - so it's me and 8 students).
Note: This is a course for regular people interested in taking charge of their knowledge and health. This is not an herbalism course per se, and I am not an herbalist. I will not pretend to diagnose or cure medical issues, or to make claims beyond my scope of knowledge. However, I have worked with herbs and wild plants for over 10 years and I believe in their power to help us. Herbology is the art of following herbal traditions as a layman - this is what I do and what you can do, too. Please look up my bio if you have any questions, or feel free to contact me.
