Coping with stress is a common problem contributing to many of today’s health challenges. As part of a major event in the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens naturopath, Catherine Major, will talk on the benefits of using herbal medicines when you are stressed.
“In my practice I see first hand the effects ongoing stress has on my patients’ health,” said Ms Major.
“I can’t remove the stressor – but what I can do is use herbal medicine to strengthen that person so they can better cope with what life throws at them.”
Using easily available herbs and practical techniques, Catherine will be part of a full day of presentations and interactive information sessions at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney on Saturday 20 September.
Other sessions on Saturday 20 September will provide information on fertility, irritable bowel and gut and chocolates and antioxidants.
During the third week of September, all around Australia, local herbalists will be running events to promote the use and practice of herbal medicine as part of Natural Herbal Medicine Week. Major events are being planned in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane, and will include talks and presentations by herbalists, herb garden tours, showbags and more.
