Adaptogens is a term used to describe herbs that are used to increase vitality and our capacity to endure life’s stressors. In this class, we will learn about the foundations of the endocrine system, how herbs have a balancing effect on mental and emotional well-being and how they support physical health especially by strengthening the immune system. We will focus on 6 herbs, Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng), Reishi mushroom, Ashwagandha root, Schisandra berries, Licorice root and Astragalus root. This lecture and demonstration style class will highlight ways to incorporate adaptogens into your daily life with recipes, methods of preparation and a demonstration of how to make electuaries (a medicine consisting of herbal powders and honey).
