The cooling energy of chickweed (Stellaria media) can help to bring relief from hot flashes and other “hot” conditions, such as some infections. Ubiquitous, mineral-rich, and deeply nourishing, chickweed cools and moistens, moving heat and stagnation gently, yet powerfully.
Join me as I discuss chickweed’s many gifts with Kat Maier RH, (AHG). The founder and director of Sacred Plant Traditions, Kat has trained many clinical herbalists who have gone on to to begin other schools, apothecaries or open practices. Her training as a Physician’s Assistant allows her to weave the language of biomedicine into her practice of traditional energetic herbalism. You’ll also receive Kat’s recipe for Meno-ease, an herbal tincture which she describes as one of her most reliable remedies to help with cooling temps from hot flashes.
Listen in for:
► How chickweed works on boundaries to help heal conditions such as cysts or fibroids
► How patterns of nature inform the practice of herbalism
► Kat’s easy-to-follow words of advice for people just beginning to work with herbal medicine
Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation:
“When you learn the energetics, you can work with plants in so many different levels… I really love just taking one plant and really seeing how far we can explore with it.” (Timestamp: 43:54)
It was a huge pleasure to spend time with Kat and I’m excited to share our conversation with you!
