Herbs in Your Garden for Colds and Flu
Monday May 24, 10:30 am
Did you know that rosemary is “an anti-inflammatory that loves the brain and also aids in digestion…” or that sage makes “a great gargle for sore throats” or that parsley “freshens the breath”? (from the Herb Society of America)
Our speaker, Lisa-Marie says, “To alleviate symptoms from colds and flu, why not turn to your garden? There are many plants useful in supporting immune and respiratory function that can be grown in your backyard or in pots on a balcony. In this talk, Lisa-Marie will highlight some of these plants — many of which you can even find in your spice cabinet — and discuss the ways that you can prepare and use them as nature’s medicine.”
Lisa-Marie is a clinical herbalist trained in Western herbalism. She received her certifications from Berkeley Herbal Center where she later taught students and supervised the center’s clinical interns. She has a private practice in Danville, is chair of the Northern California Unit of The Herb Society of America, and gives workshops all around the Bay Area.
