Herbal Theory and Preparation: Cooking with Patriot Nurse!
In this 3 day premium course offering, we will explore the what, why and how of creating herbal concoctions in a small group setting. Class size will be limited to 20 students to give greater 1:1 student attention.
What we'll cover
1) Herbal theory and why herbs work. Why they are distinct from pharmaceuticals and have long track records of success?
2) Classes of herbs and their general tendencies and actions. Where can we find these plants in nature? How to know when to harvest them? Which parts of the plant to use? How to prepare the different parts of the plant for maximum extraction of nutrient benefit?
3) How to select herbs for creating formulas that are problem-focused? How to build a solid recipe based on an individual's needs?
4) Preparing herbs in common delivery methods, including infusions, decoctions, fomentations, and much more
5) Choosing herbs to support specific body systems, allowing them to heal and resist disease. We will utilize applied muscle testing as a modality of choosing appropriate herbs.
6) Examine the role of herbs in medical preparedness and build the student's confidence in managing austere medical conditions in absence of pharmaceutical or standard medical access.
7) Discuss Biblical boundaries in healing and what it means to function as a healer operating in faith.
