Kitchen Medicine: The Root of Health
Preventative medicine starts in the kitchen with healing herbs and foods. In this class, we will discuss the medicinal benefits of common culinary herbs, many of which you (probably) have in your spice rack. We will also explore the digestive system as the root of health and/or dis-ease and ways in which to use food and herbs to help heal chronic and acute digestive issues. As a class, we will make traditional fire cider for participants to take home.
This is an online class - classes will take place via Zoom. Like our in-person classes, we aim to keep the class interactive and hands-on, and students will make an herbal product at home with all supplies provided. More information about supply pickup and Zoom instructions will be provided upon registration.
