My guest today, Sajah Popham, has so much wisdom to share about the benefits of wild lettuce for pain relief!

Wild lettuce is one of those herbs that is both underrated and overrated. There’s a lot to understand to be able to work effectively with herbs for pain relief and wild lettuce is no exception.

By the end of this episode, you’ll know:

► What kind of pain wild lettuce is particularly well-suited to help relieve

► What strength and dosage of wild lettuce is generally needed for pain relief

► Two different methods you can explore for creating a potent wild lettuce extract (or homemade tincture)

You’ll also receive instant FREE access to a recipe card for Wild Lettuce Tincture.

Here is one of my favorite takeaways from our conversation: 

“I like wild lettuce for pain…specifically for musculoskeletal pain in the form of tension, constriction, spasm, and as an acute for trauma or…injury.”

If you’re not already familiar with him, Sajah Popham is the author of Evolutionary Herbalism and the founder of Natura Sophia Spagyrics and the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, where he trains herbalists in a holistic system of plant medicine that encompasses clinical Western herbalism, medical astrology, Ayurveda, and spagyric alchemy.

Sajah’s focus is the development of a comprehensive approach to herbalism that balances the science and spirituality of people and plants. He believes in healing the whole person with the whole plant, that our body, psychology and soul can be healed with the chemical, energetic, and spiritual properties of plants.

I’m so happy to share Sajah’s wisdom with you today!
