In today’s culture very few people are unaffected by stress. Even the amount of information on ways to reduce its impact can be overwhelming. This short 4-week course begins with an explanation of what is happening in our nervous, immune, and endocrine systems when we face stress triggers. It then illustrates healthy choices that can make a positive impact on sleep, digestion, anxiety levels, and overall wellbeing and happiness. With a primary focus on safe and effective herbal remedies, information on nutrition, essential oils, and lifestyle strategies will be interwoven. This is a hands-on course where participants make and take home samples of herbal remedies specifically designed to relieve stress in our lives.
