Herbal Medicine - One Day Taster Course
Herbal Medicine - One Day Taster Course - Fully Booked!
Come and learn about herbal medicine and history, the actions of herbs, food as medicine and herbs for the bodily systems including digestion, circulation, respiration, immune, nervous, endocrine, musculoskeletal and urinary systems.

People have always used plants to heal. We live in a world in which a symbiotic relationships between plants and people occur - plants can heal us and once we tap into the great wide world of plants and health, we can become part of all that has come before and use plants for healing ourselves and our communities.
