Medicinal Plants for Protection
Presented on Saturday, December 3, 2016
Read below to find out about Medicinal Plants for Protecting the Body, Mind and Spirit with David Crow

Harness the healing power of medicinal plants to protect your health and prevent disease with a world-renowned botanical medicine expert.

Discover how you can integrate the power of herbs, essential oils, nutraceuticals and meditation to support your body, emotions, mind and soul.

Plants are powerful allies to create a life of vibrant health and joyful wellbeing.

Healers, shamans and herbalists have known this for millennia, developing a vast natural pharmacy to protect us from disease, debilitation and even death.

Medicinal plants can help you heal inflammation, quiet your mind and remove toxins. They can rebalance your emotions, release your addictions and give you sustained energy.

They can also protect you from the negative effects of modern life, from electromagnetic field radiation to chronic daily stressors to the toxic buildup in food.

This is likely not news to you. You’ve probably long suspected there is much more to know about plants and their healing properties.

You may already be fascinated by systems of natural medicine like Ayurveda, Chinese wisdom and working with herbs.

Or you may be curious about how essential oils, flower essences and herbs can affect your mood and create a sense of wellbeing.

You may also be eager to have a home pharmacy that can treat you and your family’s health naturally, and in a holistic way — helping to protect your wellbeing by building your resilience, energy and strength for the long haul.

The best news about such a pharmacy is that in the long run, it can actually save you money and leave you feeling far more empowered around your health.

The challenge you face, though, is creating an herbal home pharmacy can take a lifetime of study in many disciplines — from botany to medicine to healing disciplines.

It’s easy to go astray with so many schools of thought and so-called experts out there. Modern science tends to view the healing lore of plants with skepticism, preferring the clinical simplicity of pharmaceuticals and shutting the door on natural remedies.

On the other side, every major botanical tradition that holds great wisdom also has blind spots, gaps and even exaggerations.

Rather than attempting to sift through all this information on your own, what if you could take a virtual journey with a master guide who has spent decades of study and teaching focused on the practical, medical, curative powers of plants... and can teach YOU what you most need to know in establishing your own pharmacy?

And what if you could learn from this master, how to create a botanical medicine library to help your digestive, respiratory, neurological and musculoskeletal systems thrive as well as treat conditions as they arise?

The good news is that you can embark on such a virtual apprenticeship with a wise sage at the forefront of botanical medicine practice, David Crow, LAc. David is the founder of the highly-respected essential oils company, Floracopeia, and one of today’s greatest synthesizers of wisdom lineages regarding plants. He’s studied medicinal plants in their environments all over the world, conducted extensive research on their healing properties, and immersed himself in the ancient healing lineages for over 30 years.

In the Medicinal Plants for Protecting Body, Mind & Spirit virtual program, David will share precise protocols and recipes for using plants — from medicinal mushrooms to nutraceuticals to flowering herbs — for protection of your health, as well as healing, cleansing, cognitive functioning and much more.

David has journeyed deep into Chinese and Ayurvedic traditions. He’s learned from masters the world over and synthesized what really works into 12 modules in which you’ll discover the full spectrum of the powers of medicinal plants for protecting your health and wellbeing and treating specific ailments from joint pain to inflammation to poor digestion.

If you choose to take this journey, you’ll experience a profound understanding of herbs, aromatherapy, superfoods and even cosmology — David incorporates a strong spiritual foundation into everything he teaches.

By understanding plants in this way, you open up a more dynamic relationship with your energy systems as well. You cultivate more prana or chi. You harmonize your bodily energy. You rebuild your immune system.

This new relationship with the plant kingdom will help you grow deeper roots for holistic living, allowing you to weather health crises, aging, even loss.

The Value of a Master Guide

There is perhaps no better guide for the journey into a new paradigm of relating to the plant kingdom than David Crow, who unifies wisdom from many streams of healing practices into a coherent understanding.

For more than 30 years, he’s pioneered a path that’s about harnessing the power of plants to infuse more intelligence and vitality into your body, mind and soul — giving you access to more organically cultivated wisdom and a sustainable connection with life.

David will introduce you to medicinal plants for addressing issues in each major organ system, integrating healing approaches from Ayurveda, Chinese medicine and essential oils.

You’ll receive a profound understanding of how to work with medicinal plants, food plants, flowers, mushrooms, aromatic ceremonial plants and essential oils as a path to true health and wellness.

David will weave botanical insights with specific remedies and protocols that you can put into practice in your life immediately.

You’ll learn how to eat your way to health with nutraceuticals, as well as how specific therapeutic herbs, plant essences and oils can help rebuild your energy and tonify your body.

In every session, you’ll gain important practical information about medicinal plant protocols which can be applied to specific physical, emotional and spiritual imbalances, including how to:

  • Use low-cost common herbs to develop a highly effective kitchen apothecary
  • Utilize spices, teas, elixirs and aromatic culinary herbs to strengthen your digestion
  • Combine bitter and aromatic herbs for improving assimilation and elimination
  • Develop herbal protocols for treating bacterial infections and intestinal parasites
  • Apply dietary and nutraceutical support for liver detoxification
  • Integrate a knowledge of Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western herbs for strengthening the brain and nervous system
  • Use herbs, medicated oils and aromatic preparations for protecting and rejuvenating discs and joints
  • Use herbal protocols for harmonizing, balancing and strengthening the major endocrine glands
  • Apply dietary approaches, nutraceuticals and enzymes for controlling inflammation
  • Use aromatherapy baths, body oils and the atmospheric uses of essential oils for calming stress and increasing relaxation

  • Apply herbs, aromatic preparations and meditation practices for healing trauma, shock, loss and grief
  • Harness the power of plant preparations for protecting the heart and spirit during times of social and political unrest

Medicinal Plants for Protecting Body, Mind & Spirit is appropriate for anyone intrigued by the protective, healing and evolutionary benefits of botanical medicine as well as professionals that work with herbs, plants, oils or energy.

This course will draw from David’s decades of studying the healing powers of plants in various cultures with many gifted teachers — from the shamanic traditions of the Amazon to the alchemical mysteries of the Himalayas and the ancient wisdom of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.

We’re sure you’ll find this unique offering of hard-earned, time-proven medicinal wisdom for your and your family’s health and wellbeing deeply enriching and practical.

What You’ll Discover in These 12 Modules

In this 12-part transformational program, David will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies needed for understanding this specific approach to using medicinal plants for protection.

Each training session will build harmoniously upon the previous one so you’ll receive a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles for developing an integrated approach to using herbs, essential oils, diet, nutraceuticals and meditations to address the protection of specific body systems. You’ll be provided with a large bibliography of resources, with focus on practical and specific protocols for addressing specific conditions.

Module 1: Protection for the Respiratory System
Using Herbs & Aromatic Preparations for Respiratory Immunological Support, Antimicrobial Resistance & Environmental Protection (Recorded January 12)

As atmospheric climate changes accelerate and air pollution increases, medicinal plants offer great protection against a wide range of microbial pathogens, respiratory allergens and environmental toxins.

Your digestive system is a sensitive and complex environment, easily disturbed by poor quality food, stress, medications and microbial pathogens. Medicinal plants have been used throughout history for their abilities to strengthen digestive functions, fight infections, reduce inflammation, and enhance and balance assimilation and elimination.

Integrated Herbal & Nutraceutical Approaches for Protecting the Liver From Environmental & Metabolic Toxicity (Recorded January 26)

As environmental degradation and pollution increase, the burden of toxicity affecting the human body will worsen. As the primary organ of detoxification, the liver is increasingly under stress; it is responsible for removing a wide range of xenobiotic substances that can find their way into the body from the environment, as well as coping with endogenous toxins created by physiological stress. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, which are generally hepatotoxic, medicinal plants have great powers to support the liver’s detoxification processes, and are, therefore, increasingly important for protecting our health.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to create a hepatoprotective home pharmacy and kitchen apothecary
  • An understanding of the liver detoxification processes

Scientific research is now confirming what many have long suspected: the brain is far more sensitive and vulnerable to environmental toxins than previously acknowledged. Whether it is air pollution, pesticides in foods, nutritional deficiencies, medications that deplete neurotransmitters or numerous other factors, the health of the brain is under increasing stress.

The neuroprotective powers of medicinal plants have both a long history of empirical evidence as well as modern scientific validation confirming their effectiveness. Safe, easy-to-use and easily accessible, these herbs are now easy to bring together into a home pharmacy that is increasingly important for everyone for long-term prevention as well as treatment of neurodegenerative conditions.

In this module, you’ll discover:

Medicinal plants have always been used for treating these conditions, with numerous species prepared in innumerable ways offering us protection from the unwanted consequences of growing older.

Using Herbs, Nutraceuticals & Aromatic Preparations to Fight Inflammation & Its Damaging Effects (Recorded February 23)

Inflammation is a cause and a result of a large number of metabolic and degenerative diseases, and a primary symptom of infections. Pharmaceutical medications can provide symptomatic relief, but often worsen the condition and slow the healing process.

An extensive pharmacy of botanical anti-inflammatory agents is well-known in traditional medical systems, and large number of scientific studies now confirm the powers of these plants as well as reveal many new beneficial species.

Module 8: Protection for the Endocrine System
Integrated Herbal, Aromatic & Nutraceutical Approaches for Protecting the Endocrine System From Xenobiotic Compounds & Metabolic Imbalances (Recorded March 2)

Classical medical systems such as Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine did not have terms such as “estrogen mimicking” and “endocrine disruptors.” These are modern health challenges created by the widespread contamination of the environment with agricultural toxins, plastics and other compounds.

Combining the classical understanding of treating macro-imbalances along with the emerging understanding of the role that medicinal plants and nutrition can play in supporting endocrine health, many approaches are now emerging that can help us protect, strengthen and balance our sensitive glandular systems.

  • Dietary, herbal and nutraceutical protocols for endocrine protection and support

Many aspects of stress and burnout can be prevented with lifestyle changes, good nutrition, time management and other methods, but oftentimes they’re unavoidable due to life circumstances. Medicinal plants offer strong protection for the body and mind in stressful times through a wide range of physiological actions including nutritive support, relaxation of the nervous system, harmonizing of the endocrine system and rejuvenation of adrenal functions. Many of the herbs in this pharmacopeia can be used not only to recover from over-stimulated exhaustion, but can also be taken over an extended time to build greater resistance to stress.

Every person in the world now carries radionuclides from the atomic fallout of nuclear weapons and catastrophic accidents at nuclear power plants. Emerging research, along with decades of information gathered using medicinal plants in people with radiation sickness, show that many botanical species can offer protection against ionizing radiation, whether through environmental or medical exposure.

Following the principles of regenerating core vitality and strengthening life force found in classical Asian medical systems, we can use medicinal plants to help build resistance to the subtle yet profound energetic disturbances caused by the widespread electromagnetic pollution that now surrounds us.

  • How to create a radioprotective home pharmacy and kitchen apothecary

Module 11: Protection Against Dental Decay, Infection & Inflammation Integrated Herbal, Aromatic & Nutraceutical Approaches to Preventive & Curative Dental Treatments (Recorded March 23)

Although modern dentistry has much to offer for acute and chronic dental problems, many systemic illnesses, including autoimmune inflammation, are now being linked to metallic and chemical toxins commonly used in dental procedures.

Additionally, poor dental health can cause serious problems throughout the body; and likewise, many diseases and medications affect dental health.

Medicinal plants and their preparations have been used for millennia to prevent and treat tooth decay, gingivitis and other common dental conditions. Herbal treatments offer significant protection against dental problems, but even more importantly, can often prevent the need for toxic implanted materials with long-term adverse health consequences.

— Beverly Kune, Santa Fe, New Mexico

...Many years ago I had a very lucid dream in which a "higher being" clothed in a hooded robe was imparting the "secrets of the universe" to me. I knew what I was being told was of supreme importance, and when I awoke the only part I remembered was being told that nature "leans into us (humanity), which allows for our being." I understood this on an intuitive level, but not until hearing David lecture did I understand what this means biologically, psychologically and spiritually. I am very, very pleased with the content and depth of this course and consider the imparted information priceless.
— Bonnie Davis, Dallas, Texas
