Herbology Event.

Ever bite into a hot pepper? Depending on the capsaicin concentration, you would have felt a burning sensation, or your heart rate may have quickened, or your face reddened, or even your eyes teared up as you broke into a sweat.

Ever enjoy some cold lavender infusion on a hot summer day? It’s not the most common of summer drinks, but like other herbs classified as ‘refrigerants’ that tend to lower body temperature, it would be the best drink to have to beat the heat.

These are both examples of heating and cooling actions exhibited by herbs. Plants have the ability to illicit countless physiological responses from our bodies, and knowing the capabilities of each herb is crucial to understanding how best to apply supplements to your current issues.

Many herbalists are becoming part of a movement called Vitalism, where the importance of matching plants and people is at the forefront. With so many aspects to our individual health, it is important to take the time to assess ourselves and best identify the root of our issues.

By using the energetics of herbs, such as heating, cooling, moistening, and drying, we can best apply them to our supplement protocol.

Take a moment to examine your constitution type. This categorization of body type is common across many traditions, including Western Herbalism, Ayurveda in India, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Unanni Tibb in the Middle East, and Kampo in Japan.

Identify what elements need balancing in your system, pick your herbal allies, and your journey to better health will be underway.
