Herbs & Remedies for Winter: Balancing the Kidneys, Bladder & Bones
Saturday, February 10th from 1-4pm

During the rain, wind and our “winter” months, our internal water pipes work hard. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys help regulate our fluid balance, our body temperature and immunity, as well as our spinal columns and limbs. Older animals can stress their reserves and younger animals can use support for future years. Let’s look at herbs and remedies, foods and supplements, as well as lifestyle, for kidney and bladder health.

Food as Medicine for Healthy Animal Friends
Saturday, March 10th from 1-4pm

We are what we eat. Maintaining health means we fuel our animal friends and ourselves with nurturing foods. How can we use foods to balance the body, mind and spirit? Traditional Chinese Medicine food therapy looks at the energetics of foods and how foods effect our organ systems, immunity and general state of mind. We will evaluate the energetics of different proteins, starches and fats for our animal friends. Grains or no grains? Raw or cooked? Canned or dry? We will also look at some sample commercial foods and see if they fit our animal friends’ needs. Bring some package labels!

The Winter’s Over and the Scratching Accelerates! Love the Liver!
