Upcoming Event: Herbal Medicine Workshop

You are invited to an interactive experience where you will learn about herbs and then formulate your own medicinal mixture, under the guidance of Naturopathic Doctor, Acupuncturist, and Herbalist, Dr. Naika of blog, 'Naika in Balance".

This workshop is inspired by my "Haitian Treasures" blog series, where I share knowledge about the medicinal and socio-cultural elements of herbs commonly used by Haitians, the Haitian Diaspora, and the greater Afro-Caribbean community. 

In the first half of this 2 hour workshop, we'll go on an in depth exploration of the herbs we'll be using in the second half. We will discuss the medicinal, and socio-cultural properties of the herbs, in addition to the clinical scientific research behind them, what they are used for, and how to use them. The material will be presented in a way that everyone can understand and follow. The herbs selected for this workshop are helpful for overall health maintenance, including but not limited to, detoxification, mood support, digestive health, etc.

During the second half of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to connect with the herbs even deeper and formulate your own herbal concoctions based on your individual needs and desires.  I will guide you through the process of creating your own medicinal mix. All materials will be provided for you, so just show up ready and willing to learn and to explore. 

Recommended that you bring pen and paper to take notes!

Great music will be playing during the second half.
Incense will be burning to create a lovey aroma.
The space is colorful, bright, and inviting.

Come unwind.
Come vibe.
Come release.
Come as you are.

Event cost: $35
Space is limited to create an intimate experience, so kindly RSVP by April 28th.

Please note: The same material that was covered in the December Level 1 workshop will be covered in this workshop.

Warmly,
Dr. Naika

The "Haitian Treasures" series explores the magnificent benefits and uses of Haiti's natural resources, which I call "Haitian Treasures" because they are truly national gems.  Naïka in Balance is the premiere source for information on healing herbs used by Haitians. In this series, I explore the tie between Haiti's natural resources and natural, traditional, and holistic healing.

New Herbal Product! Limited Edition Spring Tea Blend

Special Announcement! Limited edition Spring Tea Blend now available in my online dispensary! 
Photo is my property.

This herbal blend will elevate your vibe and help you ease through the spring. My spring formula is nutrient rich and absolutely delicious, featuring 9 medicinal grade ingredients. Those of you who suffer with spring allergies will especially love this blend, as it features herbs that boost your immune system and relieve your allergic symptoms. This blend will help everyone achieve a more balanced state; mind, body, spirit.

Photo is my property.
I made this blend, inspired by nature as always, specifically water and those lovely little buds appearing on the branches of the flora all around me. In life, you plant seeds, water them with love and intention, then you watch them grow as nature takes its course. Spring is a time when you let what you plant manifest into its greater purpose. Spring is a time of brightness and lightness, as we transition from the heavy introspective vibes of winter. Like spring, this blend is all about flowing and growing.

I invite you to head to my online store and grab your blend before it sells out!

P.S: My e-mail subscribers got a special surprise code in their emails this morning for this new offering. So check your inbox and enjoy your special treat!





Stay engaged,
Dr. Naika
