Cultivating a Healthier Microbiome with Botanicals*

FREE Webinar
The human microbiome consists of 10-100 trillion symbiotic microbial cells. A number of recent studies demonstrate that external forces can alter the community of microbes located in the GI tract. Botanicals offer many important phytocompounds, which support microbiome health.* Phytocompounds impact the gut microbiome by encouraging microbiota diversity and colonization, as well as influencing the epithelial lining and intestinal mucosal health. This webinar will discuss improving gut health with a focus on the following botanicals: Licorice root, Marshmallow root, Acacia, Triphala, Turmeric, Berberine high plants, Bitters, and more.*

Finding-Flow-in-the-Lymphatics
AUGUST 18TH, 2021
Finding Flow in the Lymphatics*

FREE Webinar
The lymphatic system is a bit of an unsung hero in the body: It preserves tissue fluid balance, is essential for competent immunity, and transports lipids. Because it does so much, impairment of lymphatic flow is associated with everything from inflammatory diseases to obesity, immune deficiency, cardiovascular disease, and infectious disease. Lymphatic transport and selective permeability of lymphatics can become impaired in the face of aging, oxidative stress, inflammation, and loss of structural integrity. Fortunately, herbs can help. We’ll discuss a variety of botanical strategies to preserve healthy lymphatics.*

Botanicals discussed: Galium aparine (Cleavers), Arctium lappa (Burdock), Rumex crispus (Yellow Dock), Plantago spp (Plantain), Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower), and Oplo panax (Devil’s Claw)
