Supporting the Immune System:

Herbal remedies for cold and flu prevention

Presented by Crystal Stelzer, herbalist

Cold and flu season will be on us before we know it, so now is the perfect time to help support the immune system to thwart those nasty bugs that will be out and about. In this class we’ll discuss how to best support the immune system in terms of preventative care. We will begin by exploring the immune system in simple terms, and then we’ll learn about herbs that can help boost the system’s defense mechanisms in order to prevent getting ill. We will then discuss herbs that are antiviral for killing viruses, antibacterial for killing bacterial infections, and adaptogenic herbs which help support our body’s responses to stress. Handouts will be given, including herbal recipes that are simple to make so you can begin supporting your immune system now. There will also be a bevy of herbal products to sample, which will be made from the recipe list.
