River Valley Co-op Virtual Workshop: Plant & Fungi Allies for Stress 

Join herbalist Laura Torraco for a deep dive into the ways that stress affects various areas of the body, and how plants and fungi can work as allies to enhance our lives and lessen the impact of both acute and chronic stress. We will get into the nuances of which herbs and fungi are most appropriate for the wide range of nervous system and stress responses people experience and offer a deeper understanding of which herb or mushroom to work with and why.  

In this workshop, you will learn: 

  • Both the physiology and anatomy of stress response through the lens of the nervous system, inflammation, immune system, and cardiovascular system 
  • How to distinguish between acute vs. chronic stress and eustress vs. distress, and which herbs can treat them 
  • About nervines, adaptogens, tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms, plus how to use them 
  • Non-herbal ways to mitigate our stress
