Full course description
Did you know that herbs and spices such as garlic, turmeric, and peppermint have a long and rich history in traditional medicine?
Today, many pharmaceuticals are manufactured synthetically, but we tend to forget that most of the compounds were derived from natural sources like herbs and spices.
Join ACHS Alumna Lisa Powell for a seminar on the history and uses of many of our favorite botanicals.
In this seminar you’ll learn:
- The history and uses of many commonly used herbs and spices
- The term “phytochemical” and how this term relates to herbs and spices
- The active compounds found in each of these herbs and spices
- How the herbs and spices work within the body for supporting better health
Lisa Powell earned a Masters in Complementary Alternative Medicine from American College of Healthcare Sciences. She has also earned additional graduate certificates from ACHS in Holistic Nutrition, Aromatherapy, Botanical Safety, and Anatomy and Physiology.
