Podcast 028: Herbal Allies for Eating Disorders & Herbal Muscle Rub

Katja shares her thoughts on herbal supports for those who are coping with eating disorders. Herbs can help reduce anxiety, center us in the body, stimulate appetite, and make it easier to manage cravings.

Ryn gives you some guidelines for building a warming, relaxing herbal muscle rub. This will help speed recovery after an intense workout and reduce discomfort from delayed-onset muscle soreness. (Here’s the basic ingredients list: 2 oz ginger-infused oil, 2 oz goldenrod-infused oil, 2 oz ginger tincture, 2 oz meadowsweet tincture, 80 drops each peppermint & cinnamon essential oil.)

Herbs discussed include ashwagandha, calamus, betony, catnip, chamomile, pothos, ginger, goldenrod, meadowsweet, cinnamon, peppermint.
