Explore how resilience to infections can be improved through non-medical nutritional and herbal support, with practical demonstrations, a walk in the garden and a guide and utensils to take home.
Medical herbalist Alex Laird of Living Medicine will guide you through this practical session to:
- Identify, smell and taste common healing plants
- Find out how plants’ defensive compounds promote and protect our own body functions
- Make food and herb remedies to treat simple coughs, colds and allergies
This is the second in a five part series of workshops with Alex Laird from Living Medicine, but can be attended as a standalone session. It is ideal for anyone interested in plants, food and health or growing food. No previous knowledge is necessary, though we’d love you to share your own experience or family remedies. Alex Laird BSc runs herbal medicine clinics at Whipps Cross hospital dermatology and The Haven breast cancer support centre in Fulham.
