Parasites are a tricky topic! The internet often has misleading information about parasites, blaming them for things that are more realistically caused by food intolerances, too much sugar, etc. But that doesn't mean they aren't real! Similarly, a lot of the natural recommendations you'll find in a google search just don't work. We need real answers.
Pin worms, round worms, tape worms, flukes - these are all things that humans have to deal with. And if you live in a climate where it's not frequently a problem, as our climates change, you may find that you have to face these critters - so it's good to know what to do!
Phyllis D. Light is an herbalist in the Southern Folk Tradition, practicing in Alabama for decades now. She's dealt with parasites directly, and has a wealth of knowledge about managing them with herbs - as well as pharmaceutical approaches that are commonly recommended. This workshop has information about the full spectrum of approaches, and a lot of myth busting.
This workshop will take place live on Saturday, February 29th from 1 - 4:45pm eastern time.

When you enroll in this course, you will find a link for the live web conference on Saturday, February 29th, starting at 1pm eastern time. To join live, all you have to do is click that link at the right time!
You will be able to see Phyllis while she is teaching, and you will be able to ask your questions out loud if you like, or if you prefer, you can type them into the chat window for the moderator. (This is a good option if you will be watching from a noisy environment.)
Once the event is complete, the video recording of the workshop will be uploaded to this course - which means you can watch it again and again, whenever you like!
All of the printable handouts will also be loaded into this course ahead of the workshop, so you can print them out ahead of time if you like to follow along, and reference them any time later if you prefer to keep them digital.
If you have questions in the future when you're re-watching the videos, don't worry! You can still ask them! You can either ask them at our twice-weekly live Q&A sessions, which you will receive links for every Tuesday midday, or you can ask them by typing your question into the discussion threads that are attached to every video.
Phyllis was a role model for me throughout my herbal training and has continued to be throughout my career, as she was one of the first women to blend her deep talent for traditional herbalism with her scientific skill. Phyllis is a fourth-generation herbalist (for real, not just for the story), and grew up in a part of the country that often still depended on herbal medicine. But she also studied conventional medicine and worked in that field as well. She was my first example of how to blend these two types of knowledge with true integrity, of how to be a woman both of tradition and science.
Phyllis runs her own herb school in Alabama, and has taught at conferences for decades. She's part of the leadership of the American Herbalists' Guild. Like many women, Phyllis put off publishing until her children were grown, even though we all begged her for books! Her book Southern Folk Medicine came out in 2018, and i highly recommend it. Phyllis is one of the holders of the Souther Folk Tradition, and we and future generations owe her a debt for what she has done to preserve this tradition.
