Herbs offer us the most natural ingredients for remedies to improve our health — from helping increase stamina to supporting digestion to nourishing the mind and even easing the spirit.
And their natural healing properties are being used more and more for addressing chronic illnesses, such as Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and autoimmune diseases.
Herbal remedies can also play an important role in helping to address heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and hypertension.
Cultures around the world have used these plant medicines for thousands of years, and we owe much of our understanding of herbal healing to the generations of Indigenous healers who have discerned the chemistry, actions, and effects of hundreds of plants.
If you’ve dabbled in herbal formulary, you know it’s one of the most rewarding and effective ways to maintain your health, support your family’s health, and bring healing to your clients and to your community.
Herbal medicine can be an important part of a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition, exercise, psychological counseling, and spiritual practice.
Creating and using plant medicines provides a safe and proactive approach to maintaining your wellbeing and helping heal physical and emotional imbalances.
In the Keys to Herbal Healing, medical herbalist, herb school director, author, and speaker Holly Bellebuono will share simple approaches to creating herbal remedies using a few key concepts that can make working with plant remedies safe, stress-free, and effective.
Holly will walk you through the effective use of herbs’ “overlap” actions so you can create remedies that offer broad-spectrum results relevant for any number of health issues, symptoms, and diseases — along with how to use them in multiple ways so you don’t need dozens of herbs to get the job done.
You’ll also receive tips on how to add medicinal herbs to recipes as delicious ways of taking your daily “medicines.”
Holly has spent 23 years teaching the art and science of herbal medicine. She’s a gifted teacher who’s renowned for taking complex theories and information and making them accessible and straightforward.
Holly has studied herbal medicine from many perspectives — through gardening, mothering, pharmacology, anatomy, and physiology. The daughter of a registered nurse and a pharmacist, she combines the spiritual and intuitive “heart” with science and chemistry to teach a wholistic form of herbal medicine.
During this potent hour with Holly, you’ll receive a foundational overview of her herbal philosophy — a 4-tier Formula approach that simplifies crafting herbal remedies, while also helping you to add more and more herbs and herbal knowledge to your natural medicine cabinet.
And you’ll be among the first to hear about an all new 7-week online program with Holly in which she’ll provide a fun, easy, hands-on approach to crafting effective herbal remedies for the health and healing of your key body systems (including respiratory, digestive, neurological, and more) — for both adults and children, and for both common and chronic conditions.
