Easy Herbal Remedies

I recently saw a post on the Instagram reel for The Herbal Academy “tell me you’re an herbalist without telling me you’re an herbalist“…  and I started thinking about it.

For me, it takes very little time to discover I’m an herbalist… Just walk into my dining room which is also my apothecary. I’m blessed to have plenty of space for a dining room table (which doubles as a work area for herbs), growing plants, and storage. But many people have those things, what might also be a giveaway is the hanging herbs and the line of books on the hutch part of my apothecary – I have many more in e-book form – or I’d never have space for them!

Looking around my space you’ll see my certificates from Cornell University and the Herbal Academy, as well as tools, kettles, percolators, and grinders tucked into a corner.  My dining room/apothecary is friendly and inviting for anyone to come and sit at the table with me.

You can also tell in an instant that I love chickens and roosters… Please don’t ask where that came from because I have no idea!

Whew! This year has been a significant year of study!  I’m happy to say I just finished the Herbal Academy’s Business Herbal Course! It’s a 150-hour course designed to help those interested in running an herbal business or practice.

I’m glad I decided to take the class as I learned valuable information.

If you are interested in an herbal studies program, I highly recommend the Herbal Academy!  I’ve gotten a quality herbal education there.

So, I think I am done for the year on educational programs, and continue my research into help for my chronic pain, Meniere’s disease, and hypothyroidism.

When I was out in Colorado visiting family I mistook the intensity of the sun and the heat and collapsed on the Eagle Rock Shelter Trail in the high desert in between Hotchkiss and Delta Colorado. I was fascinated by the contrast between the lushness near the Gunnison River and the desert in the Delta region and was having fun taking pictures. I had only been clear from Covid for a week, not at all ready for a hiking trip! Note to self, you are not 20 years old anymore – no more assuming you can handle it!

At any rate, a rescue off the trail, an ambulance to Delta Hospital, and recovering now for a week at home, and I’m still wiped out and exhausted. I’m told it could last for weeks – and that I had pushed my Covid recovery back by getting the heat stroke. (Not surprising by the way I feel).

This is a reminder to HYDRATE in the heat! Drink electrolytes if you plan on being out in the sun, use sunscreen, and wear a hat! Don’t do what I did and overestimate your response to the heat.

Be Careful out there!
