Sober Curious Series

Dates & Time:

Saturday, January 7th & 14th, 2023 | 6:00pm-7:30pm

Cost: $50 per person
 

Presented by Malia Thompson, Certified Clinical Herbalist, Nutritionist & Flower Essence Practitioner

 

Addiction Recovery – Nutritional and Herbal Support for Addicts, Families & Learners

Space is limited. Please call the shop to register and prepay for the class. There will be Q&A time provided at the end of each class as well.

 

This two part workshop covers the anatomy of withdrawal, herbal and nutritional support for the physical and neurological effects of withdrawal including insomnia, cravings and anxiety, as well as vitalist practices to incorporate self-care and ease the transition. This is beneficial for individuals quitting alcohol, for friends and family members, counselors and healthcare providers wishing to support those who are addicts.

 

During our time together, we will create “Real World Solutions” that you can use as a tool in areas of your life where it may be relevant. The information and tools in this workshop can be used with any addiction treatment programs or non-treatment programs. You do you. This is a judgement-free zone and we are here only to support and provide information. Develop skills to meet yourself (and others) where you are at – nutritionally and emotionally – so you can take your own steps forward and discover new territory.


Learn to work with the underlying causes of addiction, like trauma and depression, at a “root cause” level with foods, herbal remedies, and emotional and behavioral repatterining with flower essences and neuroplasticity exercises.
