This is one of the most important ancient herbs for today’s world. Chinese wormwood provides a variety of benefits to patients with a wide range of immune challenges, and more. Dr Gaeta will present additional research and new insights on this important herb, for the fourth year in a row. 

Dr Gaeta receives questions weekly from patients, colleagues and others, many of whom were coerced into receiving experimental and ineffective covid injections, which have proven to do far more harm than good, on how to detoxify and minimize damage from them. In this presentation, he provides his specific herbal and natural functional medicine strategies on this subject. 

This Chinese herb, also known as Red Sage, has received much attention from the scientific community in recent years for its potential to help patients improve their cardiovascular health, as well as those with a range of immune challenges. In this year’s WHS, Dr Gaeta presents his first deep dive on this important herb.

Charlotte Kikel’s Presentation Topic:

Beauty by Botanicals: How Herbs Support Skin Health

Description: On the one hand, it’s great from a holistic perspective when imbalances show themselves on the skin, as it’s considered to be a superficial expression of dis-ease. On the other hand, everyone might see it! 50 million Americans suffer from acne and one in ten will develop atopic dermatitis. Drug commercials are rampant on television for skin conditions, often with toxic effects on the liver. So as a practitioner who turns to Nature’s remedies first, what can you offer? This webinar will take a deep dive into which herbs will better support your patients with common skin complaints. We will address both internal and external applications of herbal medicine giving everyone hope that they might cultivate a healthy glow from the inside out. 


  1. Anatomy and physiology of the skin.
  2. Pathophysiology of the skin.
  3. The role of Centella asiatica, Calendula officinalis, Echinacea angustifolia and Arctium lappa in skin health.
  4. Targeted support for common skin complaints with internal and external applications.
  5. Live Q&A
