The webinar will be held 4-5 pm EDT.

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the US. While it can cause health challenges, so too can having too much iron. Healthy iron levels are essential for the transport of oxygen via red blood cells, the conversion of blood sugar to energy, and the production of enzymes, amino acids, hormones, and neurotransmitters. Genetic mutations can influence iron availability, uptake, and utilization.*

In this presentation, we review the many qualities of iron—the alchemical metal of Mars. Iron has a long history of symbolism in the concepts of magnetism, strength, fortitude, and courage. It is the most common metallic element in the universe, and is ubiquitous in our solar system, our soil, within the history of the development of human culture, and within our bodies. We explore the difference between heme and non-heme iron, and the variation in transport pathways that allows the body to use these two forms. Omnipresent in nature, foods and botanicals contain nutritional iron that supports a healthy level of functioning, as well as stored iron.*

Shifting the Focus in Menopause Management: The Impact of Adrenal Function*

FREE Webinar
Historically, menopausal symptoms were viewed as arising solely from rapidly dropping estrogen levels. However, we now know that other factors are also at play, including imbalanced adrenal hormones and unstable blood sugar. With the heightened stress of the past year, many women are experiencing increased symptoms, including a recurrence of ones that had previously subsided. In this conversation, we’ll discuss the impact of adrenal hormone balance on the menopausal transition, as well as how best to support adrenal function to help manage and alleviate menopausal symptoms.*

Become a Bilophile!* with Dr. Jill Crista, ND

FREE Webinar
The use of bitter herbs and foods is a healing art unique to herbal medicine. Bitters induce bile production and secretion, an action known as cholagogue. But the bitter taste isn’t only experienced on the tongue. Bitter receptors are found in many unlikely places in the body, including the innate immune system. Why is that? We’ll explore the answer and discover the hidden and expanded bitter powers of familiar plants.*

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
