The Mushroom Course by Herbal Academy

Hopefully, in the days to come, the world will be less interested in hoarding toilet paper and more focused on creating a healthier lifestyle that can withstand the viruses that plague us. One often overlooked source of important vitamins and minerals is the mushroom. 

Mushrooms have the same quantity of B-12 as meat. They contain linoleic acid, one of the two essential fatty acids that humans must get through their diet. They are a source of ergothioneine which has a powerful antioxidant. Mushrooms support your body’s healthy immune and inflammatory responses by improving the formation of the adaptive immunity system which eliminates or prevents the growth of pathogens. They also enhance the functionality of immune cells. 

You can find more information about mushrooms and immunity here. 

Would you like to learn more about mushrooms? Well, since you’re most likely in quarantine, why not consider an online class that explores the health benefits of mushrooms while you practice your social distancing skills?

The Herbal Academy has just opened The Mushroom Course for pre-registration. By registering now, you can save $50 on the regular course price and receive some great bonus offers as well. An optional upgrade will get you the Mushroom Foraging Kit so that you can set out and explore the wonderful world of mushrooms in your own area.  

The Mushroom Course will help you discover 20 common wild mushrooms that you can begin to include in your diet to boost your immune system. You’ll have the chance to explore the ecological relationship mushrooms have with the world and how that means a healthier place to live for everyone. 

This is an introductory to intermediate level course, so don’t worry if you haven’t studied much about these fascinating fungi before. It’s designed to allow you to become more familiar with their identification and biology and incorporate mushrooms into your healthy diet. 

Why not use this time you have been given to learn more about immunity and your diet?

2020 Courses towards “Improve”ment

I may have gone a little overboard. I know that I have actually. But there were all sorts of courses on sale in January at Udemy and the Woman’s Wellness Bundle from Ultimate bundles this week, that I decided to sign up for a whole bunch of courses. 

First Udemy. 

I’ve finished the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Practitioner Certificate Course with Kain Ramsey. I have learned so much about active listening, goal setting, belief development and defining my core values. In fact, I liked Kain Ramsey’s presentation style so well, that I signed up for two of his other courses, the NLP Practitioner Certificate Course and Life Coaching Certificate Course. If you’ll recall, finishing the CBT course and taking at least one other are two of my goals for 2020. So I’m well on my way in this!

Then the Ultimate Women’s Wellness Bundle has a whole slew of courses to choose from. It’s not feasible for me to sign up for them all, although I’d love to, so I choose those that most aligned with my goals for this year.

As you may recall, I have hypothyroidism. With the uncertainty about the Mexican healthcare system this year, I need to be more proactive about taking matters into my own hands. For that reason, I signed up for the 14 Day Thyroid Alive! Kickstarter Program by Stephanie Wharton course.  Many of the thyroid courses I have taken in the past focus on recipes, which is problematic for living in central Mexico since I can’t find many of the ingredients. Although this course has quite a number of recipes, it also talks about the actual physical ailment of thyroid issues. Yeah!

I also signed up for two herb classes which why they don’t directly fall under a goal subheading, are certainly things I am interested in. The Basics of Holistic Herbalism by Monica Mitzel and Preparing Your Garden for the Golden Years by Christine Dalziel. Ok, so I’m not exactly in my golden years, but they are closer than they were 20 years ago.  I finished the second course already and was pleased with the tips I learned in the course about how to make my garden more accessible, which herbs to plant for senior health, and that lavender is an excellent companion plant for apple trees.

I’m also working through two courses that so far have just blown me away. They are Love & Boundaries by Beautiful Minds Wellness and Emotional Resilience Training by Georgia Foster. The analogy of each of us is the star in our own movie really resonated with me in the Love & Boundaries class. Then the guided meditations in Emotional Resilience Training have made me experience relaxation like I’ve never felt before. I’m looking forward to finishing them up in a few weeks.

The Ultimate Women’s Wellness Bundle has a total of 29 eCourses for you to improve yourself, ranging from pregnancy care to menopause. Any one of these courses are valued at more than the entire bundle, and you get access to them all! I know I’m super excited about working my way through them over the course of the year. 

With the Ultimate Women’s Wellness Bundle you’ll get a total of 79 products worth $4641.70 which includes 32 eBooks, 32 eCourses & audios, 12 workbooks & printables, 2 summits & a documentary for $37. But act soon, because this deal ends on February 10.

Surviving Voluntary Exile: How to overcome common obstacles to making a successful life transition

If you’ll remember, I created a course called Surviving Voluntary Exile: Overcoming Common Obstacles to Making a Successful Life Transition a few months ago designed to help those struggling with living in a new country at CourseCraft. That course is still available, but I wanted to expand the information’s reach. I know that some live in areas where regular internet access makes taking online courses difficult.

So today I’m pleased to announce that Surviving Voluntary Exile: How to overcome common obstacles to making a successful life transition is available in ebook and print format. The ebook has all the basic information and links to the optional readings, while the print book has journal pages for you to complete the activities that will help you create your best life in your adopted country.

You can get the ebook free from Amazon for the next few days.

I hope that with these new methods of distribution, more exiled, deported, migrant, or expat women will find a way to make it work despite the hardships.
