It is understood by herbal practitioners around the world that compliance is key – meaning the herbs don’t work unless you take them. But for most people taking herbs which are strange, unfamiliar and often unappealing to their palettes is a challenge. Even for TCM practitioners who are trained in their use, and who are motivated to take herbs like Reishi, Ginseng or He Shou Wu welcome an easy and delicious way to consume their daily tonic herbs.
Join Malcolm Saunders, owner of the Light Cellar, and Dr. Tanya Kelloway, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, to learn about the history and benefits of Chinese tonic herbs as well as the culinary techniques to making them easy to use.
During this session you will experience an ‘Elixir’ and learn about the many forms elixirs come in.
