Today’s episode is brought to you by the NorthWest Herb Symposium.
I had the pleasure of attending this wonderful event a few years ago and I gotta say it’s top notch. The location alone is worth the trip. It’s located at the Camp Casey Conference Center in beautiful Coupeville Washington.
Next year’s event, titled “Botanicals at the Beach” will be from August 23 – 26 2018.

Today’s episode was recorded at the 2017 NorthWest Herb Symposium.
It’s with none other than David Hoffmann.
What can herbalism do as opposed to the hype? What actions are relevant, what tonics can support the various body systems. We will discuss acetylcholinesterase inhibitors from Sage to Huperzia. How do these herbs actually effect the aging body and mind.
David, a Fellow of Britain’s National Institute of Medical Herbalists, has been a clinical phytotherapist for more than twenty-five years.
He started his herbal practice in Wales, continuing at the Findhorn community in Scotland, and has been practicing in California since 1986.
