Ever wonder about how to use Chinese herbs in your daily life? Wonder what all those mysterious dried plants are in the jars at the local pharmacy? Let American Licensed Chinese Medicine Practitioner Kelly Clady-Giramma de-mystify them for you!
On Sunday, October 26 from 3-5pm Kelly will lead a fun and informative program at Cultural Diving, introducing commonly found Chinese food-herbs such as white peony, dang gui, ginger and many more. Attendees will learn which health conditions each herb can apply to and how to use them in medicinal teas, soups and stews.
