Anxiety and depression, the herbal way
My lecture will talk about the epidemics of anxiety and depression. This lecture will be exploring medicinal plants on the experiential level, with tasting and trying the medicinal plants that we will learn about, and see how they affect our mental state and feelings. during this 40-50 minute journey we will get to know anxiety and depression from both the allopathic and herbalist approaches. By looking at the polarities and differences between these approaches we will try to understand the confusion, popularity and complexity of the information regarding these conditions. Together we will then go for a 40 min walk and learn about the local plants and herbs that we can use that are everywhere around us.
