Chronic inflammation is the root of so many of the ailments that plague us as we age – arthritis, skin problems, cardiovascular disease and even cancer. Did you know that you can reduce – even reverse – conditions caused by inflammation? For our July program, Marie Totten will present a special workshop on how to address inflammation using herbs!

 Marie Totten is our own Program Chair, as well as an educational software trainer by day. She will use her experience as a training facilitator and her passion for herbalism to provide a fun and informative program. Join us July 13 to learn how to use mushrooms, turmeric, oregano and ginger, to name a few, to improve overall health, boost immunity and reduce inflammation. Marie will share her own story about how she was impacted by inflammation and demonstrate delicious, inexpensive ways to use herbs at home to improve your health.

Natural-Remedies-For-ArthritisStay tuned for announcements on our upcoming club calendar. We’ll see programs on herbs and bees, herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Native American herbalism, and much more!
