Be proactive in supporting your healthy brain function and preventing serious neurological issues as you age.
Forgetfulness, foggy thinking, brain fatigue, and mood changes are disconcerting symptoms that many of us experience but seldom know the best options for treatment and prevention. These symptoms can happen to anyone and are often telling us that our brains need more support.
Too many people think memory issues are a natural part of aging. With a little help, you can look forward to a lifetime of confidence in your brain and overall health.
Many measures can be taken naturally, by learning how to self evaluate so you can “feed” the brain for optimal function and eliminate lifestyle factors that undermine brain health.
This 6 week course will guide you through self-evaluation to a personalized natural brain care program that will boost confidence in your overall health and happiness.
While the course runs live for 6 weeks, you have all the time you need to complete and review the material.
Here’s what you get in Keeping Your Brain Brilliant
- Core lessons designed to guide you to an understanding of the WHY and HOW of natural brain care
- LIVE Q&A after each lesson so you have a chance to clarify and broaden the material presented

“More than any other source of information, from books and medical guides, Charis's organized presentation has helped me make sense of and find tools for addressing my own early cognitive issues that 5 years ago accompanied a host of other autoimmune symptoms. I would highly recommend this.”

Hi, I'm your instructor,
Charis Lindrooth, D.C.
When I graduated from chiropractic school (first in my class - woohoo!), my brain was in peak condition. Like most, that was a gift I took for granted.
I set up my practice as a young enthusiastic doctor and was just starting to settle in, when I experienced a double dose of harsh reality. First, my grandmother died from Alzheimer’s disease. Second, after pushing myself to excel as a student, my brain was suddenly uncooperative. I started having episodes of brain fog and struggling to focus in a way I had never experienced before.
The combination of these two events fueled my desire to learn more about the workings of the brain. I was determined to wade through oceans of information in order to find viable natural solutions to support healthy cognition - before symptoms became debilitating!
As I entered the world of herbalism, I felt like I had finally found my people. Being able to share my extensive research on brain health with this community of healers had clarified my sense of purpose.
Now, after two decades of research and work as a natural healthcare provider, I’ve developed a successful program that combines my two passions: brain health and natural healing.
It’s so inspiring to know that some of the core workings of the brain (i.e. memory, cognition, focus) can be improved and strengthened with plant medicine, diet modification, and lifestyle changes - no prescriptions needed.
Using a large apothecary at my clinic, I’ve helped my patients overcome both chronic and acute health conditions – but my desire to help, heal, and teach eventually outgrew my small rural practice.
As founder of the MidAtlantic Women's Herbal Conference and Allies for Plants and People Symposium, I’ve created an ever growing community of healers. Expanding into an online community has allowed me to touch so many more lives, and for that, I’m grateful.
Organizing this research into an effective program and connecting with people that will benefit from it, is my life’s work. The transformations I’ve seen in patients and students that apply themselves to this program are what motivates me, and what makes me so excited to be able to share this with all of you. You deserve to live a healthier, more brilliant life.
If you have any questions about the program, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected] I’m here to help!
Yours in Health,
Charis Lindrooth, D.C.
What Students Are Saying
"I hesitated to invest in this at first, but knew that I was starting to see mental changes, and it would be cheaper to take your course, and way more expensive to deal with serious mental decline in the future.
Your course was so much more than I expected and truly worth the time and money. I feel very inspired and motivated. You’ve shown me how and why to take better care of my brain. Your advice to stimulate our brains — I’m not worried about that one right now because I’m learning so much. Thank you!"
~ Carol R.
“At first I was apprehensive to join a class on brain health because I thought the topic might be too challenging for me, but I knew it was important so I took the leap. I have loved the classes you are teaching and can’t wait to learn more!! Your teaching brings it to a place that is both easy to understand and empowering. Thank you for helping me understand that I really do have the power to influence my thinking power!"
