It’s the holidays. What better time to talk a bit about alcohol, alcohol consumption and its effects on the body and mind. In this Health Listen from our Aged to Perfection podcast archive, I spoke with herbalist Cathy McNease about this ancient elixir that’s also a neurotoxin. Used responsibly, alcohol can be very pleasant and a nice addition to our lives. Used immoderately, it can have serious personal and social consequences.
Cathy’s Health Listens offer valuable advice that’s easy to follow and habits we can develop for our bodies and minds. Her recent book, In Harmony with the Seasons: Herbs, Nutrition and Well-Being, is available now in print and eBook.
Cathy McNease is a nationally certified herbalist with a Diplomate in Chinese Herbology from the NCCAOM, a B.S. in Biology and Psychology from Western Michigan University and two Master Herbalist certificates from Emerson College of Herbology in Canada and East-West Course of Herbology in Santa Cruz.
