Natural Medicine Week
Posted August 22, 2013, by Jenny Sakr
If you know your echinacea from your valerian and would sooner drink a cup of chamomile tea than pop a sleeping pill, chances are that you’re a ‘treat yourself naturally’ kind of person, interested in natural medicine and how it can be used to aid various health conditions.
This year’s Natural Medicine Week runs from 21-27 May. It’s a week dedicated to celebrating and promoting the power of natural medicine, showcasing their value and dispelling some of the myths and misinformation surrounding their use. It will also shine the spotlight on natural medicine practitioners and the role they play in the health and wellbeing of Australians.
Practitioners around the country will be hosting a variety of events, from public talks and open days in clinics to tastings and seminars.
If you think you might want to take your interest further and delve more deeply into natural treatments and remedies, then check out the range of natural therapy courses available to you online. There’s sure to be something to tickle your milk thistle!
