Laconia Adult Education Offers Home Remedies from Local
Laconia Adult Education will be offering a six-week course on Home
Remedies from Local Herbs: Learn How to Make Them. The class will
start on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 and meet from 6:00-7:30 PM.
Many people are turning again to “new, alternative” remedies that
our grandmothers once grew in their gardens and knew as commonplace.
This class is a starter course for anyone interested in keeping
themselves and their family healthier, and in treating simple
ailments without needing to turn to unnecessary antibiotics and
over-the-counter drugs. Whether you are planning to grow a few
herbs in your home garden, or trying to navigate the crowded shelves
in your neighborhood health food store, this class will give you a
great head start.
Students will learn what homeopathic remedies are, how they are
made, how they work in the body and which remedies are safe to use
at home for simple health issues. In the botanicals section,
students will learn about the many different types of herbal
remedies that are available on the market today. Students will look
at how to tell quality products from inferior products, how to dose
adults versus children safely, which herbs are safe to use on your
own, versus those you would do well to consult with a trained
practitioner before using. Students will talk about considerations
around drug-herb interactions and safety. The class will discuss
how to purchase or assemble useful remedy kits so that you can be
prepared, whether for a camping trip, for the cold and flu season,
or for common childhood lumps and bumps.
Dr. Kathryn Cranford is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Midwife.

health and pediatrics. Years in an on-call midwifery and pediatrics
practice have taught her what remedies are helpful for clients to
have on hand at home for those 3AM phone calls.
