Herbal Approaches for Coronavirus

With the spread of novel coronavirus come many questions about personal susceptibility and protective measures people can take. Clinical herbalist Stephen Harrod Buhner, who is well-known in the herbal world for his scientific approach to herbal antivirals and herbal antibiotics, shares this well-cited document about herbal treatments for the coronavirus family of infections. While much is still evolving and unknown about this specific strain of coronavirus, Buhner offers many approaches to support the immune system, lungs and other aspects of the human body that can be impacted by viruses like covid-19.

If you’re interested to chat with an herbalist about antiviral and immune-supportive approaches to lessening the impact of the coronavirus, feel free to reach out. I’m dropping off elderberry boneset syrups to clients around Boston this week! Customized herbal support is available in your community (or, we can be safe and meet online).

Upcoming Projects

In 2020, I’ll be launching a series of herbal classes on pregnancy topics, called Birthkeeper Herbalism. Interested folks will be able to sign up for the whole series, or one-off topics. More information will be posted on the website.
I am also becoming a certified childbirth educator through BACE (Boston Association for Childbirth Education). Upcoming herbal-informed and queer-centered childbirth classes will be planned in 2020.

I will still be attending births, but will take fewer families on in a given month. Repeat clients, hit me up! 😉
