Rank #3: 109 | Becoming a Practicing Herbalist with Micah McLaughlin

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s episode is brought to you by the Great Lakes Herb Faire! This recording is from their 2018 event in Chelsea, MI.

Thanks to the Great Lakes Herb Faire and Micah McLaughlin for sharing this audio!

CLASS DESCRIPTION ​It can feel frightening and overwhelming to move from being an at-home herbalist to starting your practice. In this class, we'll explore possibilities in forming a business that meets your own unique needs and how to avoid the pitfalls of many startup practices. Understanding your goals as a person is the first step in launching your herbal practice. This class will be useful for those asking questions like “What kind of business do I want to create?” and “Is this business I created really serving my community and the life I want?” 

Micah McLaughlin is a naturopathic practitioner specializing in the integration of the body and mind. Micah uses the traditional naturopathic tools of sclerology, muscle testing, holistic counseling, and facial/fingernail/tongue analysis to find the root of his clients’ health complaints. With an approach of curiosity and investigation Micah looks for the energetic and emotional blocks underlying symptoms, often requesting that these be “noticed” or “examined” by his clients. Herbs, flower essences, supplements, breath work, and energy work are used as Micah helps people connect to who they truly are. Through this process clients are able to shed their limiting beliefs and embodied patterns and find healing on a physical, emotional, and often spiritual level. Micah was trained at the Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education and founded Continuum Healing in 2008 and co-founded the Wellness Collective GR in 2015. He further studied Western Herbalism and the Enneagram, deepening his passion to treat the whole person. Micah  has written and taught his Survival Herbalism course at various primitive skills schools throughout the country. Micah deeply believes in the healing ability of the body and inspires his clients through hope and empowerment. Thanks for listening! HerbRally www.herbrally.com

Rank #15: 73 | What is an Adaptogen Anyway? with Heather Irvine

Podcast cover
Read more

Adaptogens and nootropics have been claimed to do amazing things, but do you ever feel the claims made of herbs such as Ginseng and Rhodiola seem vague, too numerous and too good to be true? There is a reason for that. By definition, adaptogens have broad positive effects -- such as helping us withstand stress -- and are somewhat versatile in use. In this class we will go over some of the commonalities of adaptogens, including how they work, as well as differentiate many specific ones in terms of strengths, applications and energetics. From this you will be better able to articulate what an adaptogen is and what systems adaptogens work on. Tulsi, our Herbstalk plant-of-the-year, is an adaptogen, and we will touch on how it is different than many of the others. 

This class was recorded at the wonderful annual event, Herbstalk, which takes place each June in Somerville, MA. 

A big shout out and thanks to Steph and Henry, as well as all of the Herbstalk volunteers for organizing and hosting such a great event. For more information on Herbstalk as well as their two other events, just head to Herbstalk.org.  Thanks for listening!  HerbRally www.herbrally.com

On today's episode Heather Irvine teaches us all about the hawthorn tree. 

She wrote an excellent monograph on hawthorn, which you can find HERE

"Hawthorn is one of those country herbs whose leading quality one might at first describe as benevolent. It is much more powerful though!  A great tree, low and broad in stature, it occurs wild in edge-lands of landscapes or occasionally planted for beauty, especially with respect to its generous white blossoms or deep red fruit in the fall and winter. It serves food and sanctuary to wildlife. Overzealous thorns protect birds and smaller critters from those larger ones which receive a memorable gauge and at best a pause to lick one’s wounds! In and around a Hawthorn’s understory, clumsy human types get so focused on the prize… zeroing in on more flowers or more berries, faster, receiving a poke followed by a clumsier startled retraction. Birds and squirrels laugh at us for sure!" - Heather Irvine

Rank #18: Yarrow Monograph by Krystal Thompson | 17

Podcast cover
Read more

On today's episode I narrate herbalist Krystal Thompson's monograph on Yarrow. 

Here's a sampling from her monograph which you can find here: www.herbrally.com/monographs/yarrow

Medicinal Use: Perhaps most famously, yarrow is prized for its benefits to wounds or minor bleeding. Its mild antiseptic and anodyne properties coupled with its ability to coagulate blood and stop bleeding make it the perfect ally in this case. These properties also make it useful in cases of hemorrhoids, post-partum care, bruises, and mouth sores, as well as internal bleeding (4). Yarrow beautifully harmonizes blood circulation and can be beneficial in cases of stagnation such as vericose veins or fibroids, as well as cases of overstimulated blood flow, such as hypertension. It is sometimes considered a skin tonic and can be used in a very effective facial steam to improve complexion through circulation and cooling inflamed tissue. Yarrow can also be protective against topical sun and wind damage.

Yarrow prepared as tea is a wonderful ally in the face of tough colds. Its diaphoretic action makes it especially useful at the onset of fever or in cases of obstructed perspiration (1). Diaphoretic plants “move the circulation toward the surface of the body, helping to cool it off through sweating, and increasing the immunological activity on the “front lines” of the body’s battle against the cold” (6). For these same reasons it is a common plant accompaniment to sweat lodges and other types of therapeutic sweating where the “front lines” of the battlefield can be physical as well as spiritual. Yarrow opens pores and purifies the blood, a great combination for eruptive conditions such as measles, chickenpox, fevers, etc. In TCM, yarrow’s benefits here would be described as tonifying Qi or releasing to the exterior (5). No doubt related to these indications, yarrow also has a reputation for being generally beneficial to kidney disorders.

Yarrow has an additional affinity for the pancreas and the lungs. It can benefit “thick blood,” which occurs when liver or pancreatic function is compromised due to high insulin levels or low digestive enzymes (10). Here, the blood contains more fats and other dense compounds that struggle to move freely through the blood vessels. This causes overexertion on the heart and improper gas exchange within the lungs, which puts stress on the entire body. Yarrow stimulates pancreatic function and boosts blood flow to help avoid these instances, but can benefit the anxiety or insomnia that may follow if thick blood does set in.
