Natural Strategies for Managing Pain = 5h49

There are many possible causes or contributors to pain and until they are identified and addressed and hopefully resolved. Analgesic agents, while they may be effective in the short term, are not addressing the root cause in any way. Knowing what kind of pain you are treating will determine what herbal strategy will work best. This is a practical and informative class, using examples and applications drawn from 30 years of clinical practice. It is geared towards practitioners and advanced students and is intended to give you tools for your clinical practice.

Big, Bad Alkaloids – Our Strongest Medicine = 5h14
Always respected and often feared, the alkaloids are among the most pharmacologically active plant constituents. Many poisonous or hallucinogenic herbs are rich in active alkaloids, e.g. Atropa, Aconitum, Gelsemium. They are powerful, very effective medicines and also sometimes scary to use. These herbs are the “effectors” in a formula, targeted to specific actions and outcomes. They require carefully calibrated dosing schedules and understanding of side effects, contraindications and drug interactions. Through a deep discussion of the pharmacology, dosing and toxicology, ritual uses and ethnobotanical uses, we will learn how to use strong herbs respectfully, safely and effectively. About
