Essential Botanicals for Clinical Practice

With Dr Michael Gaeta, DAOM, MS, CDN

Course Description

Eclectic herbal therapy utilizes botanicals from different regions and traditions around the globe. This intensive seminar prepares clinicians in the indications, cautions and doses of professional- quality botanicals from around the world, that will enhance any healthcare practice. We begin with an overview of Western herbal medicine, and issues of efficacy and quality.

We then focus on Echinacea, an oft-misunderstood Native American herb of immense benefit to a wide range of patients with chronic and acute conditions. You will learn of groundbreaking new research, which will significantly improve what you know about Echinacea’s effects on the immune system and how it actually works. This seminar also includes whole-food nutrition as the foundation of optimal herbal therapy. With each of the herbs discussed, you learn the synergistic food concentrates that enhance its effectiveness. The seminar emphasizes a practical way to introduce eclectic herbal therapy into your clinic—based on traditional use and the presenter’s clinical experience, and validated with case histories, which demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach.
