Autumn SplendorSending a Happy Autumn Equinox to all of you plant lovers!No doubt about it now, Autumn has hit the Pacific Northwest.  The nights are cooler, the trees have started changing colours and the seasonal colds and flus have started circulating.  Our family has already had one, how about you?This time of year, I tend to see a lot advertising messages in my email, on facebook and at the grocery or health food stores."It's back to school time ... start taking your immune boosting herbs!"I used to live around the corner from a health food store and every year, like clockwork, the Oil of Oregano was placed right on the counter beside the cash register.I heard a great many conversations about how "oregano oil will kill whatever is ailing you."  "It's so strong, it'll just burn that sickness away!"My mother still tells me "echinacea doesn't work unless it's combined with goldenseal."  I love you mom, but this is a myth.  A myth that is so widely believed that goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) is now an endangered plant.  I know very few herbalists who actually use or recommend it.  It's very strong medicine.flu-cartoonDo you see the common thread here?These are very strong herbal medicines.   Many of the herbal remedies being promoted as "immune boosters" are very strong medicines.  They need to be used with care or they will do more harm than good.And it's not the best approach for you to ward off "seasonal illnesses."In fact, using herbs in this way means that you’ll likely miss their greatest gifts!Join me for a free webinar to explore...
