Herbs for Muscular/Skeletal Health

 

The skeleton and musculature are the supporting structures of our bodies. They work well together but are often challenged by poor posture, overexertion, dehydration and other potentially disruptive forces. But there are herbs that can help us to manage the aches, pains and inflammations that come with the territory. In this class we learn about the muscular-skeletal system, potential problems and the herbs that help us to manage them!

 

Price: $52 public
