The use of herbs as topical applications

Location: Herbalist & Alchemist, Inc., Washington, NJ
Teleconference as well as on-site

The effective use of herbs for treating disease in not limited to internal use. Herbs (as well as clay) have been used as poultices, infused oils, baths, liniments and ointments since the beginnings of medicine. These topical applications can be incredibly effective for relieving pain, healing wounds, treating skin diseases, improving circulation and enhancing relaxation. In this class we will talk about some of the most effective plants used externally for treating arthritis, nerve pain, burns, trauma injuries, psoriasis, peripheral neuropathies, back and neck pain, sciatica and other difficult to treat problems. We will also discuss the most effective forms of application, the use of herbal hydrotherapy and how massage therapists and other bodyworkers can improve patient outcomes by including herbs in their practice.

Little-Known uses of common medicinal plants

Location: Herbalist & Alchemist, Inc., Washington, NJ
Teleconference as well as on-site

It is common for people to attach sound bites of information to an herb and think they understand its uses. Milk Thistle is the liver herb, St. John's wort the depression herb. Unfortunately this does a tremendous disservice to the herb because most herbs have a multitude of uses going far beyond the popular ones. In this class we will look at common herbs and learn how Milk Thistle is being used to treat cancer, how Saw Palmetto can treat polycystic ovarian syndrome, and Nettle Seed for degenerative kidney disease. We will discuss many of the most popular herbs but focus in on the uses almost no one knows.

Alteratives, Depuratives and Antidyscratics

Location: Herbalist & Alchemist, Inc., Washington, NJ
Teleconference as well as on-site

The concept of an alterative was a very prominent part of western medicine up until the early 20th century.  Alterative medicines were used to help alter an unhealthy state in the body to a healthier, more normal metabolism.  Even though alteratives were dropped from western medicine their use still persists as an important part of herbal medicine.  These herbs enhance normal eliminatory functioning, thus allowing the body to function more effectively even on a cellular level.  Come join us as we learn about the most important alterative herbs and the differences between alteratives, depuratives, and antidyscratics and how they can be used in the treatment of chronic degenerative diseases such as cancer, arthritis, skin problems and autoimmune conditions.
