BOTANICAL MEDICINE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
This online workshop will teach parents and caregivers how to create natural herbal formulas at home; to address one of the most difficult health challenges of being a parent with a special needs child.
Many children with special needs struggle with debilitating digestive issues such as constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, and leaky gut. In this class, we will discuss and learn simple herbal formulas that can be done safely at home, taste good and are easy to use.
In this class, we will go through the steps together of how to make a highly effective herbal formula for children that will be ready to take as soon as the class is over. This is a hands-on workshop with interactive video that allows parents to walk through each step and be confident about the process, understand what the herbs do, and learn how to easily administer the formulas. We send out the herbal ingredients and make the formulas during the class together!
Students will make two formulas in this class that can be used right away. Things that will be discussed include:
- Helpful herbs for children’s digestive complaints such as constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux.
- Other helpful herbs for children.
- Step-by-step process of making a children’s formula, start to finish, includes videos.
- Important information on dosage and frequency of use for children.
- How does leaky gut or food allergies impact special needs children?
- Diets for special needs children.
- Aggression and anxiety in children – an overview of ways to help deal with this.
- Full access to resources and class materials in our online classroom
- How to cope with stressors of raising a child with special needs
Many parents of special needs children find that doing an activity or process together gives better results. For this reason, this interactive workshop will teach parents an effective botanical formula to make for their children, that can also be used by the parent as well.
What We Send You: we send out a box prior to the workshop with selected herbs you will need for making several herbal formulas.
What Materials will you need for the live class? These should be items you have in your own kitchen, such as a saucepan, stove, spoons, jars, etc. We will send out the materials list a week before the class.
Students will make 2 botanical formulas in the live class, and receive several recipes for making additional formulas, posted in our online classroom.
