Thomas’s 2019 Florida Herbal Conference classes are:
Fortifying Digestive Vitality
Herbal medicine has embraced the “Death Begins in the Gut” philosophy since the times of Hippocrates. We hear a lot about building digestive fire and vitality in the alternative medicine world, but what exactly does that mean? This class explores the tenants of digestive vitality, the processes our body uses to breakdown and assimilate the outside world. If digestion is the foundation of health, this class is the users guide to building a strong foundation.
Snot Just Another Allergy Class
Why does your nose drop like a faucet every spring? Why do some foods cause bloating and hives? This class explores the role of allergens, mast cells, histamine and all the ways things can go wrong and how we can use our herbal allies to bring balance.
Intensive: Fatigue Causes and Remedies
Fatigue is one of the most common complaints, yet can be very difficult to figure out. Why, in our society, is feeling excessively tired one of the top reasons for doctor’s visits? There are a multitude of causes for fatigue, and you have to rule out each and every one until you find the source. In the herbal world it’s tempting to just recommend some Eleuthero or Schisandra for fatigue – but that approach often misses the actual cause, giving only temporary results. In this class we take a look at all of these causes, and go into detail about the most common. The class follows a thought chart for fatigue differentials, a process you can apply to many other health concerns.
