This workshop offers an overview of the herbology and the cosmology of numerous tribes and,details on how to use the most popular botanicals from South America. Botanical drugs first found in the Amazon are now the chemical models for many modern-day treatments.  Join us for an interactive and informative education on specific modalities, and the traditional medicine used to treat them--all supported by research. From intensive immunities for therapeutic support, nourishing tonics, to first aid remedies, you will become familiar with the most popular herbal remedies used. You will also sample many of the superfoods of South America  with scientific data behind these concentrated foods and herbs. Sample herb extracts and formulations, from Amazon Therapeutic Laboratories.
