If you’ve ever wanted to grow and process your own herbal remedies, I’ve got great news!
You still have time to join medical herbalist Chanchal Cabrera in her never-before-offered 7-week video training, Growing Your Own Herbal Medicine.
Chanchal’s second class is this Tuesday, July 10, at 5:00pm Pacific. When you enroll, we’ll send you a link to access the complete video and audio recordings of the first class session, as well as the full transcript.
In the following 8-minute video clip from her first class, Chanchal welcomes you to the training and shares what you can expect over the seven weeks...
“We’re going to be very practical and very pragmatic in looking at useful, applicable information for making herbal remedies. That includes growing, harvesting, drying, processing, and storing the plants, and then how to manage the plant medicines once they’re in the dispensary.”
In this information-packed video training, you’ll actually spend time with Chanchal in her apothecary garden, in her flower garden, and in the nearby forests so you can actually see what Chanchal calls “the stars of the show” — the numerous herbs, vegetables, and flowers growing there.
You’ll also join Chanchal in the dispensary attached to her clinical practice to see where she compounds and formulates medicines for patients…
And you’ll explore the identifying features and uses of plants and what’s required to make them good medicines…
This 7-week training is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced herbalists who want access to information that isn’t taught in standard herb classes or books.
As Chanchal explains…
“There are a lot of good teachers in classrooms and on the internet who can tell you about herbs for the immune system, herbs for the heart, and herbs for women’s health…
“And it’s very important and very useful information, and I teach a lot of that too, but what nobody is really teaching is what I think of as the “backstage” — the tips and tricks of a practicing medical herbalist.”
Chanchal is also a passionate advocate for nature’s calming and curative benefits — simply being in their presence is healing and rejuvenating. Too many people, she says, suffer from Nature Deprivation Disorder.
If you enjoy spending time in nature, and basking in the restorative atmosphere of forests, wildlands, and other natural areas, you’ve experienced firsthand that plants can put you into a state of deep communion with the natural world.
Truly, she says, "plants are to people as water is to plants — simply indispensable".
