November Webinar 

Enhancing Brain Health using Natural Botanicalswith Emory Prescott, PhD
Sponsored by the Long Island Unit!

“Nootropic” is a relatively new term meaning “cognitive-enhancing.” True nootropics should aid with natural cognitive function, support and protect brain function, and also be non-toxic to the user. Properties and constituents of nootropic herbs have been shown to be beneficial in a multitude of ways. Using medicinal herbs to enhance brain health is nothing new; in fact many have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years. In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Prescott will discuss her doctoral research on nine specific herbal nootropics; including her research study so overwhelmingly productive that it led to her leaving her clinical and teaching positions at the hospital and university to start “The Herbal Brain®” as a full-time business.  Attendees can expect to gain knowledge of brain cognition, neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, and the most potent cognitive-enhancing herbs as they pertain to improving brain health.  

Dr. Emory Prescott is founder and owner of THE HERBAL BRAIN®, LLC.  Emory is also a North Carolina native, past university professor, author, avid gardener, herbalist, and medical speech-language pathologist with 26 years of experience helping patients with neurological issues.  Her PhD in Natural Health Sciences and doctoral research has given her a unique perspective on brain health as it applies to typical adults as well as those with memory issues.  With a passion for healing, Emory has created a unique line of products blending highly beneficial herbs which research has shown to enhance memory and boost brain function.  THE HERBAL BRAIN® produces teas and aromatherapy specifically blended for enhanced brain health.  Her gardens are located on the Balsam range overlooking Sylva, NC.  To contact Emory, please visit her website at www.theherbalbrain.com
