Free Webinar - Understanding & Treating Lyme Disease with Herbal Medicine
As a registered herbalist I'm often sent information from the professional bodies about practitioner resources and CPD (continued professional development) opportunities. Much of this information is aimed at practitioners, but I do think that a lot of it is also of great interest to the wider general public, who often also have a lot of knowledge (and a desire to know more) about natural therapies and herbs.
Unlike much of the information online which is frequently from copied blog posts or unreliable sources, there are a number of organisations that produce free, professional content that's researched by experts for the purpose of furthering our knowledge in this field.
I thought I'd share a link which I recently received from the American Herbalist Guild (which I believe also accepts lay members) on the very important topic of Lyme disease. Of particular interest is the connections made with the rise in the number of cases which seem to go hand in hand with climate change, and the declining health of the planet.
The webinar is 100% free to watch via the Vimeo link below, but I would also highly recommend checking out the work of the Guild if you're interested in herbal medicine, as there are a ton of free resources on there that are really very interesting.
This topic is of particular interest to me (I'm always AMAZED at the number of GPs and other health care professionals who simply refuse to believe it is a) a real condition and b) can be helped by anything other than the standard course of antibiotics) and the speaker is a professional of high regard, with a great deal of knowledge on this subject.
I hope this is a helpful springboard for anyone dealing with this condition and looking for high quality information about self care herbal protocols.
