Green Comfort’s Herbal Wisdom for September

Sep 04, 2014 02:00AM
Summer is slowly turning to autumn and nature is guiding us to prepare for this change of season inside and out. As we harvest the remaining squash and dig our potatoes we are preserving foods and herbs for the coming months. Internally, we can prepare for the changing seasons too. It is time to drink our freshly dried nettle tea to fortify ourselves against hay fever and allergies, as it reduces allergic responses. Soon it will be time to dig the roots of Dandelion, Burdock and Yellow dock and make a strong decoction to purify and cleanse the liver, lymph and colon, to clear the way for a cold weather diet of roots and tubers. It is time to Dry the last herbs, ferment the cabbage and pickle the vegetables for food and medicine. Harvest time is a time of preparing, changing and for those living with the seasons, a time to fortify.

At Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine it is a time to go back to school.

We have four programs all beginning in September, including Foundations of Medicinal Herbalism, Herbal Apothecary, Energetics of Traditional Western Herbalism, taught by Matthew Wood and Clinical Training I, II & III. Learning to prepare your harvest for your food and medicine is integral in the study of botanical medicine. Studying plants as medicine is integral to living a healthy life. Join us in preparing for the next season of your life!

Teresa Boardwine RH, AHGI, is the Founder of Green Comfort and has been an herbalist for 22 years and is registered with the American Herbalist Guild, she teaches at Green Comfort and sees clients with her clinical students on Thursdays.
