Free Class- How's Your Thyroid Doing?

Having a healthy thyroid is vital for overall health.  Many people’s thyroid problems are overlooked or inadequately addressed. 

I evaluate thyroid function in nearly every patient I work with because it is so essential to physical, mental, and emotional health.   Many people diagnosed with thyroid problems take medication, but still do not feel well.  This is because healthy thyroid function depends on the health of the whole body.  Please join me to learn more about getting your thyroid healthy.

Free Class- Natural Solutions to Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disease can be frustrating- fluctuating symptoms, ongoing fatigue, pain.  The pharmaceuticals to treat autoimmune disease often have uncomfortable side effects.  Rarely is the treatment holistic nor does it address the underlying causes of the illness.  

At this next class I'll give an overview of the underlying causes of autoimmune conditions and next steps that you can take to start healing.  The underlying causes are often in places that you might not suspect.  Holistic medicine can offer solutions to your illness without the side effects of medications.  

I work with many types of autoimmune conditions including:   Hashimotos thyroiditis, Graves disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Sjogrens, Anklylosing Spondylitis, Ulcerative Colitis and Chrohn's disease.  

Please join me September 10th 6:30-7:30 at my clinic to learn more.

Make your own Herbal Medicine

Many of us have lost our connection to plants and their powerful healing properties.  Perhaps you had a grandmother that would make you tea to calm your stomach or soothe your sore throat.  A surprising number of our common garden plants have been used for centuries to ease everyday health problems and support overall wellness. 

In addition to seeing patients in private practice, I co-founded The Backyard Apothecary.  Our mission is to teach people how to create wellness and treat everyday ailments with plants form the abundance of their backyard.  

This introductory class will cover:

- how to incorporate the top medicinal plants for our area into an attractive garden
- how to care for and harvest them
- how to make them into your own medicinal tea, tincture, salve and steam inhalation. 

As part of the class we'll make several herbal remedies that will be yours to take home so you can start your own backyard medicine cabinet.  We'd love to have you there!
