WORKSHOP SESSIONS:

Herbal Magic To Help Your Stress 

Herbal medicines are powerful tools to help us to cope better with stressful events and situations when they arise and also when taken prophylactically, can moderate the actual stress response.   Learn about some of these herbs and how they can assist you with anxiety, insomnia, tension and mood swings, in a gentle but powerful manner.

Stress is a common and often unavoidable part of life in the modern world, and its outcomes often very debilitating, even in otherwise healthy and health conscious individuals.  

Herbal (phyto) medicines, however, can assist us greatly not only with managing the symptoms of stress such as anxiety, tension, insomnia and grumpiness, but also when taken appropriately in a tonic form, can help ameliorate the actual level of the stress response. In presentation, Phil will introduce some of these herbs and how to safety use them.
