Herbs to Support the Long Haul* with Dr. Jack, Weber, DC, ND, FIAMA

FREE Webinar
Many infections are easily identified and eliminated by the immune system. But for some patients, acute and chronic infections can cause a dysregulated immune response. This dysregulation can lead to local and systemic immune responses that can cause both short- and long-term effects on the neurological, cardiovascular, endocrine, and musculoskeletal systems. A disruption of any one of these systems can have a negative impact on the quality of life for patients. In this webinar, we will take a look at herbs and other natural methods to help promote immune health and provide support for the long haul.*

Botanical interventions to be discussed include: Curcuma longa, Camellia sinensis, Astragalus membranaceus, Withania somnifera, CBD, and Traditional Chinese Medicine formulas.

Fighting Frailty: Herbs to Help Elders Stay Fit & Strong*

FREE Webinar
As we age, many of us experience frailty, or a decline in our overall fitness. Unfortunately, frailty is associated with poor quality of life and poorer surgical outcomes, as well as, of course, with reduced physical and mental stamina. While proper nutrition, exercise, and cognitive engagement are all important factors for maintaining elder fitness, botanicals are key as well. This webinar will focus on several herbs that can help support seniors in staying sharp and strong to fend off frailty, so they can keep feeling fit and healthy through the years.*

Botanicals to be discussed:
Gentiana spp. (Gentian)
Avena sativa (Oats)
Astragalus membranaceus (Astragalus)
Ocimum sanctum (Holy Basil, Tulsi)
Crataegus oxycantha (Hawthorn)
Hericium erinaceus (Lion’s Mane mushroom)
