Good Living Options with Herbal Medicine
Join us for an experiential and informative talk on incorporating herbal medicine into your lifestyle. This talk offers gems for new and seasoned herbalists alike! We will discuss some back-to-nature home remedies and effective herbal medicines (including kitchen vegetables, spices, well known herbal medicines and wild plants) for common family health issues from the newly released book, The Good Living Guide to Natural and Herbal Remedies. For more information on the book click here!
The book was inspired by the urgent need to recognize the value of mother earth and the gifts which she provides, especially plants – both serving as our foods and also our medicines and the importance of taking steps to maintain and preserve the health of the earth for our own wellbeing, and the continued accessibility of our healing plants for the health of generations in the future. There will be an opportunity to ‘sample the flavors’ of some gentle herbs during this talk (so bring a spoon and a drinking mug!). Book signing will occur after the talk!

Quotes of Praise for the Book:
“…. how refreshing to find a book on herbal medicine that readily acknowledges the sacredness of herbal medicine and its connection to the Divine. As much as the ‘science’ behind the art of herbal medicine is both valid and necessary, too many authors focus on the former, and ignore the latter. Thankfully, Katolen also illustrates how many herbs have food-like qualities and their specific ability to provide foundational phyto-nutrients to help address the many ailments that our bodies are subject to today. A wonderful book – both for the lay person to whom it is addressed, as well as the practicing herbalist.” – Richard DeSylva, RH, DNM (Registered Herbalist, Doctor of Natural Medicine), founder of THE HERB WORKS
“What a great book! It is full of little jewels and ‘sound bites’ of wisdom – both ancient and modern. Written from the experience of a Herbalist that has worked for many years in the trenches of clinical practice, while teaching enthusiastic students her skills and art. A must read for novices, with great formulas and programs for even experienced Herbalists. Well done Katolen.” – Terry Willard ClH, PhD. Clinical Herbalist and author of 12 books including the Wild Rose Herbal Textbook series and Flower Essences: Emotional Alchemy and Spiritual Evolution.
“This book, written by a practicing herbalist, is a treasure trove of useful information. From the actions of herbs to how to dose them safely and from household uses to clinical applications, there is something for everyone in these pages. With lots of recipes, clear instructions and a wealth of interesting tidbits, this is the herbal medicine book you have been waiting for. Beginner herbalists and experienced practitioners alike will find much of value here. ” – Chanchal Cabrera MSc, FNIMH, RH(AHG) -Medical Herbalist, Horticulture Therapist, Chair of Botanical Medicine, Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, Director, Gardens without Borders Biophilia Center and Botanic Gardens
