Parasite Workshop with Phyllis D. Light
Get real answers about how to handle parasites.
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 course contains over 4 hours of video, printable handouts, reference materials, access to our live weekly Q&A sessions, and more!
Tuition for this workshop is $100.

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.
