Natural Support for the Cardiovascular System

Using science and traditional knowledge, we will discuss how herbs and nutrition affect the cardiovascular system. Learn safe identification and effective use of four cardiovascular tonic herbs. Participants will sample herbal concoctions and take home a handout.
