A DAY of CLINICAL TOPICS

September 21, 2017, 9am – 4pm

Very special Day with Mimi Hernandez. Mimi will offer the following three mini classes. Registration is for the whole day.

leaf4hedsHerbal Support for Iron Imbalances  (2 hours)

Iron is an essential element in our daily diet. It is part of what makes our blood red and it plays a major role in oxygenating our bodies. A deficiency of iron causes anemia, a significant health issue especially for women. On the other extreme, even mild cases of too much iron, or iron overload, particularly in the organs can cause numerous symptoms and health complications. Learn what the signs are and how herbs and diet can support iron balance.

leaf4hedsVascular Health; Decreasing Varicose Veins, Hemorrhoids, and Lower Leg Edema  (2 hours)

Weakened blood vessels and increased capillary permeability contribute to swollen limbs, varicosities, hemorrhoids, diabetic ulcers and other venous insufficiencies. Congestion through the heart and the liver can manifest issues of  hepatic portal stagnation which may also affect the efficiency of blood movement from the veins. Let’s explore ways to enhance healthy blood flow throughout the body using herbs, nutrition, and lifestyle. A special focus will be given to herbs and foods that strengthen the blood vessels walls and decrease capillary permeability.

leaf4hedsRue, Resins, and Roses  (2 hours)

Latin American Folk Herbalism represents a long tradition of woven healing history (and her-story) from cultures from around the world. Most sacred and revered on the healing altar can be found the resins of Sangre del Drago and Copal, the protection of old world Rue, and the healing enchantments of Rose. Learn the ethnobotany of these folk healing plants, peoples, and traditions and receive valuable everyday medicine to braid into your own healing path.

Herbal teas will be provided at all the one day workshops. Please pack a bag lunch.

Fee for the class is $90.
