Herbs, nutrients, and most importantly, dietary and lifestyle changes, can all work synergistically to dramatically improve mental acuity and memory. As we age and see some of our most beloved and respected elders lose their powers of reason and memory, or when we see those changes in ourselves, the importance of supporting this incredibly intricate and amazing system becomes paramount.

We have some pretty incredible herbal allies at hand, and the studies supporting their use are amazing. We will sample various herbs to support the brain, discuss the best ways to use them, and create comprehensive protocols to support brain function into advanced age; for all ages!

The Cactus & Succulent Society meets the second Sunday of the month.

Gunnar Eisel will present “From Windowsill to the Poor House: Building and Maintaining a Cactus and Succulent Collection.” Gunnar Eisel's interest in cacti and succulents can be traced back to his childhood infatuation with photographing night-blooming cereus flowers and a few unfortunate encounters with opuntia glochids. His interest in cacti became intensified through many annual trips to the Anza-Borrego desert. An avid collector, he will share his experiences and knowledge.
