Feel Fit Forever

(Middle School – Adult level content, 1 hour)

This program covers the basics of healthy eating to gain the most nutrient value possible from all food (and why that is important), and clarifies the difference between dieting vs weight management. We delve into an ‘in depth’ discussion of how food fuels our body, the consequences of poor nutrition over time, and practical and affordable ways to literally melt extra weight away and/or build body tone.  All of this is explained via simple-to-retain-and-use tools and concepts to help people not only to introduce a wider nutrient spectrum into their diet, but to sincerely desire to do this!  We also explore ways to expand our thinking from a focus on food/fitness = health to total mind/body nourishment and unique ways to achieve and maintain this state of being…forever!

 

 

Clean Within and Watch Your Outer Glow Blossom

(Middle School-Adult, 1.5 hr)

Learn how to be a healthier, happier, more energetic you! This program covers: Internal cleansing – using nutrition and herbs; Developing a sound nutritional practice that is based on what YOUR body needs (and how to figure that out); Creating an exciting and very doable (regardless of your current age or health status) vision for staying fit in your later years; and Discovering and removing blocks that keep you from achieving and maintaining your ideal weight, look, and fitness.  (This program gets slightly tweaked based on audience demographics, focus and age levels.  I have done a 3rd grade level version of this as an Earth Day program: “Internal Earth Day Clean-up”)

 

 

Nature’s Path to Wellness Series:

Classes and seminars on the nutritional and medicinal benefits of plants. (Adult level, but can be modified for HS level; 1- 1.5 hour)

 

Kitchen Medicines

Discover the plethora of healing opportunities right in your kitchen cabinet! Your kitchen spice cabinet contains remedies for an amazing number of everyday illnesses, including nausea, headaches, indigestion, and gas pains.  While most culinary herbs are useful for preventing and relieving gas, &/or stimulate digestion, some spices will also relieve nervousness, spasms and coldness, some will help you with chronic issues you may have – issues with blood pressure (too high or too low); painful menstruation; respiratory illnesses, and more. Others are strongly anti-microbial (kill harmful bacteria), or bacteriostatic (halt bacterial growth). We will also work through an interactive exercise that will give you more confidence in using this knowledge at home.  Program length: 1-1.5 hrs.

 

Garden Medicines

Be delightfully surprised to learn about the little-known (but highly useful!) medicinal/edible properties of common garden plants (i.e. basil, blueberries, corn, onion, parsley, peppermint, red raspberry, watermelon), and you’ll learn ways to use them for ideal health, vitality, and youth. Program length: 1hr.

 

 

 

 

How to Make Herbal Medicinal Preparations

In Making Herbal Preparations, Eco-Herbalist Teresa Wolfe will provide simple answers to important questions, like:

  •    How do I select for the best quality herbs?
  •    How do you determine quantities and dosage?
  •    What’s the best way to store the herbs and spices to preserve their flavor and medicinal properties?
  •    What’s the shelf-life of my herbs?
  •    What exactly are infusions, decoctions, tinctures, etc.?

You will be provided with simple how-to directions to prepare remedies to soothe your minor issues and prevent them from becoming major ones.  You will learn how to make flavored oils for cooking, massage oils, and oh, so much more! AS ALWAYS, her classes are packed to the brim with practical, easy to take-home-and-use information. Program length: 1 hr.

(NOTE: This program can have a lab component. The time for the presentation must be extended to 2.5-3 hrs. and participant fees will be required. For example: “As a class, we will make a useful salve for insect bites and stings.”)

 

Historical Medicines

Immigrants and settlers who traveled into the unfamiliar territory of the Midwest brought European plants with them as a traditional source of medicine.  Today, many of these plants are familiar lawn, field and roadside weeds.  Eco-Herbalist Teresa Wolfe uses fascinating and intriguing stories and visuals to describe various historical medicinal, edible and other uses of these plants to help us understand how they arrived in our area.  Program length: 45 min -1hr,

Weather and time permitting, the program can include a short ‘plant walk’ and each participant will make an herbal medicinal salve traditionally used for insect bites and stings. Participant fees will be required and program length is extended to 2 hrs.

 

Nature’s Path to Wellness: ‘Weed Walk’

Also known as the “Weed Walk”, Eco-Herbalist Teresa Wolfe guides us on a tour around the property as she identifies and profiles plants that can be used as a wild food and/or medicine. She entertains and enlightens us with stories of discovery and her experiences using these amazing plants commonly ignored and disregarded as ‘weeds’.  Each participant will make an index-card ‘herbarium’ to use for future reference. (Participant fee: $2.00 each)
