Matthew Wood will instruct us on the medicinal/therapeutic use of herbs for the flu, acute injuries, muscular skeletal issues, and other common ailments. He will describe uses of herbal remedies, their properties and “personalities.” We will study approximately 35 major plants used in Western herbalism, from the wild American woodlands, from garden varieties, and from remedies which we have adopted from abroad (e.g. lavender, ashawagandha, astralagus, etc). We will also study applications in first aid, as well as some acute conditions and some chronic digestive system disorders such as celiac disease.

“By magically changing our lives, our green friends restore physical health, psychological happiness, and spiritual purpose. A little miracle occurs and the magical level clicks in, in fact, whenever an herb cures in a real and radical way. This is a sign that something great and new has come in from a different world to enrich and develop our lives to their fullest and most beautiful potential.”
