Getting Success with Herbs
One of the most frustrating things about herbal medicines is that they work sometimes, and they dont other times. This class is centered around strategies, tips and knowledge on how to use herbs successfully.
Here's a list of topics we'll cover in class:
- Strategies on choosing the right herb
- Common mistakes
- Exploring dosage and frequency
- When to use what herbal preparation (tea, tincture etc)
- Assessing freshness and quality
- How to tell if an herb is doing something
- How to tell if an herb has a negative effect
- Experimenting safely

ABOUT THE TEACHER:
Natalie runs the Adiantum School of Plant Medicine, a local herb school in Seattle, where she teaches classes on plant ID, medicine making, and holistic herbalism. She has spent several years acquiring and synthesizing knowledge about Western Herbalism, PNW Materia Medica, nutrition, and Chinese Medicine. She is particularly passionate about traditional assessment techniques, the effects of emotions on the physical body, and holistic models of understanding imbalance. She also loves to forage and grow medicinal plants of all kinds, because cultivating a direct relationship with the living plant is not only educational but very healing. All in all, she is an empiricist at heart who loves experimentation and exploration into the possibilities of nourishing and strengthening our bodies and souls. As a teacher, Natalie is flexible, engaging and multi-sensory. She has extensive teaching experience, and is always looking for ways to keep things fresh and exciting.
