Below you will find descriptions of upcoming events and workshops at the Upland Hills Ecological Awareness Center. We would like to thank the Living Free Foundation for sponsoring our events and making them possible.
Herbs, Vitalism & Holistic Immunity Sunday, January 22 from noon to 5ish
Perhaps the most popular use of herbal remedies is to "boost the immune system", but few really understand how this is accomplished, or know when to use which herb for what condition. Join herbalist jim mcdonald in a discussion of the herbs traditionally used to improve immune function by nourishing and supporting the body's defences rather than suppressing and diffusing them, or by simply "killing bacteria/viruses"... special attention is given to the holistic treatment of fevers and building core immune strength.
In addition to covering the proper uses of herbs such as echinacea, astragalus, elder & a few medicinal mushrooms, the roles of the hypothalamus, bone marrow & lymphatic system in the immune response are explained clearly & concisely with a special emphasis on endocrine immune function. Over 30 pages of handouts further elaborate on the herbs and processes involved, going far beyond "boosting the immune system" and offering a truly holistic understanding of well being.
