Natural Stress Relief Classes Led by Local Herbalist

Derek Weaver

Derek Weaver

Derek Weaver, Nutritional Consultant and Herbalist at Heal Your Disease, is offering a plethora of classes to combat winter stress and build the immune system in January such as Medicine Mushrooms: Talking Mushrooms with a Fun Guy, and Stress Relief Naturally. Both will be held at his office in Broad Ripple.

The event highlighting mushrooms from 6 to 7 p.m. on January 8 is known as his most popular class, in which he discusses the powerful effects of taking adaptogenic mushrooms for immune system health, like reishi, cordyceps and chaga.

“Typical benefits people see are improvements in energy and stress function overall,” says Weaver, “as well as benefits with skin issues such as eczema and psoriasis, and in lung and tissue health. Reishi, especially, is a liver detoxifier and it cleanses the blood.”

In the Stress Relief Naturally class from 6 to 7 p.m. on January 16, Weaver will outline several practical herbs as well as cover what can amplify and combat the stress response.

“Just because your boss screams at you doesn’t mean it has to bring you down,” says Weaver.

Admission for each class is $20. Registration recommended. Location: 6352 Guilford Ave., Indianapolis. For more information including all of Weaver’s upcoming classes, visit
