Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa, DN-C, RH, also known as K.P. Khalsa, is one of the foremost herbal experts in the field today. He is one of a very few clinicians with more than 25 years of experience with medicinal herbs. His interest in natural healing techniques developed because, as a child growing up in Oregon, he had a serious disorder, and several serious illnesses. As a young adult, he studied a wide spectrum of physical and mental health care therapies from all over the world, and was successfully healed. He focused especially on Ayurvedic medicine and on the therapeutic value of yoga, meditation and other studies of consciousness.
K.P. Khalsa is the author of several books on natural healing topics. He recently co-authored Herbal Defense (Warner Books), an exciting book for the popular market, on the use of herbs for staying healthy in modern times.
He is a frequent contributor to mainstream and professional publications in the natural healing field, and is a contributing editor to Let's Live, The Herb Quarterly and Great Life.
Mr. Khalsa's approach to herbalism is very eclectic. He has been personally trained by Yogi Bhajan, master of Kundalini yoga and natural healing, supporting his main focus in Ayurvedic medicine. He also teaches about Chinese and North American herbalism. K.P. Khalsa's ongoing research and his vast knowledge of herbs from around the globe make him especially valuable to many herb industry businesses that call on him as an authoritative consultant. He has created more than 400 of his own formulations for commercial applications, and works closely with companies that supply high quality herbal products to health professionals across the country.

August 28, Friday ~ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm "Natural Remedies for Anxiety and Sleep Problems" Getting a good night’s sleep has a powerful impact on our energy level, our physical health and immunity, and even our moods and sense of well being. Having trouble getting to sleep or not being able to go back to sleep after waking up in the middle of the night are more common problems than most of us realize. Even when we know we have slept, how deeply have we slept and how refreshed do we feel upon awakening? When we are anxious about something specific or for some unknown reason, our energy is easily depleted, and we become “too tired to sleep”, this often results in continual sleep deprivation and a grouchy, irritated person. There are many safe and natural remedies that have been traditionally used to deal with these very common problems, and bring back that wonderfully refreshing feeling of getting a good night’s sleep.
August 29, Saturday ~ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm "Herbs for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" This class will cover the full spectrum of factors involved in these complex syndromes and their relationship to other diseases.
