Scientific Validation of Herbal Medicine
Join Ellen Kamhi PhD RN for a discussion about the ‘inside story’ of how herbs actually work. We will transverse the indigenous traditional use and delve into the depths of scientific validity. Why does berberine kill bacteria without causing the development of resistant strains? How does Red Yeast Rice interfere with cellular pathways to inhibit Co Q 10? Does silymarin upregulate the P 450 Liver Enzymes to enhance Detoxification? Understand mechanisms of action of how herbs heal, along with possible adverse effects and herb-drug interactions.
All registrants will receive the course recording and handouts, with access to materials for one year.
