FRIDAY, AUGUST 24 ~ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm in Classroom Building B "Healing from Chronic Inflammation" Chronic inflammation can lead to diseases such as fibromyalgia, SEID (chronic fatigue), even cancer. What causes inflammation in the body; how can we find relief and stem the genesis of disease? After a short discussion on the causes of inflammation, we’ll delve into the myriad ways to contend with it and lead a life that is healthier. Grounding, sun, limiting EMF exposure and blue light, developing appropriate sleep patterns, good diet, and stress relief all play a factor in alleviating chronic inflammation, as do water quality/intake and herbs. Take home a wealth of easy to understand information that is effortless to implement into daily life.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 25 ~ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ~ (Meet Outside of Bachelor Officers’ Quarters (BOQ) After Lunch) "Wild Medicinal Plant Walk" Before harvesting or making herbal remedies, the first step is meeting the plants in their happy environment. In our wild medicinal plant walk, we begin to solve the mystery of Nature’s “green blur.” From the tallest tree to the deepest root, medicinal plants are all around us. We'll explore flowering plants, deciduous trees, conifers, and ferns in varying ecosystems. Open your eyes to the medicine and food in Nature! What plants are anti-inflammatory? What are the look-a-likes? How do I make sure I’m making 110% positive plant id? Are there poisonous plants in the area? This plant walk will solve these mysteries. Learn medicinal and nutritional benefits, and some anatomy and physiology of the human body. It’s important to know *how and why* the plants work inside the body; their actions on a physiological level, in order to safely utilize them with family, friends, and clients. Included will be a discussion of where and when to legally harvest plants for optimum vitality, potency, and nutrition. Not only will you learn about the plants individually, but also begin your study to create effective formulas by paying attention to plants that grow in community. Look at plants in a whole new way after this very informative plant walk, and become more at home in the woods as we walk the trails on a Northwest Experience!
