 We have some great speakers joining us this year at our AGM:

Using Herbs & Nutrition to Aid Mental Health

Katolen Yardley, MNIMH, RH (AHG)

Nervous system overload is experienced today in epidemic proportions.Perhaps what we are seeing is a mirror, as so in the macrocosm we are seeing in the microcosm. Trauma anxiety and depression are signs of overload resulting in a disconnect from community. We will discuss theories behind mental health, current research and possible tools for healing including herbs, nutrition and lifestyle. (2.5 hours)

Katolen is member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, seeing clients in her private practice since 2000. She teaches in the Strategic Resiliency Program for First Defenders where trauma plays a key role in dis-ease. She is adjunct faculty at Boucher Naturopathic College, a clinic supervisor and instructor at Dominion Herbal College, BC. Katolen is the third term President of the Canadian Herbalist’s Association of British Columbia (CHA of BC) and current President of the Canadian Council of Herbalist Associations (CCHA). For 18 years, Katolen appeared monthly on a nationally syndicated morning news, Global Television,  where she offered herbal information to the public; Katolen specializes in women’s health issues, skin dis-ease and digestive disorders and believes in providing usable tools for healing through inspiration and education.
