Towards a Transgender Inclusive & Gender Affirming Herbalism

Herbalists have so much to offer towards supporting transgender health. Are you wondering how you can make your herbal clinic or educational spaces more welcoming to transgender folks? Are you already working with trans clients or students and wondering how you can create more comfortable and affirming spaces for them? This class will begin with an introduction to gender and the barriers that transgender folks face in society and healthcare settings. Then, through examining how these barriers show up in herbalism, we will explore how to move towards a more gender-affirming, trans-inclusive herbal medicine culture and practice. We will cover plenty of practical tips for trans-competence as well as considerations for choosing safe and effective herbs for your trans clients.

Understanding Herbal Constituents: A Working Knowledge of Phytochemistry for Clinical Herbalists

Join Lisa Ganora for an introduction to herbal constituents - we'll explore their occurence, relationships, classification and significance for medicine-making and clinical practice. Learn how and why a knowledge of basic phytochemistry can help you understand herbal medicine and pharmacy. We'll look at polarity and other influences on solubility, the actions and energetics of important constituents, which medicinal foods and herbs feature which constituents, and how to coax these phytochemicals out of the matrix and into our medicines. We'll also explore the importance of synergy and variability, and how to interpret studies on isolated constituents in the context of actual herbs and extracts. If you've been wanting to develop a deeper understanding of how botanical medicines work, this class offers practical insight and tools for further exploration.
