Herbs are powerful medicines. I've seen them bring instant relief to bee stings and other painful injuries. I've seen them heal up surgical wounds so fast that it amazed doctors, and I've seen them reduce blood pressure and relieve arthritis. I've seen them bring welcome relief to insomniacs and help people clear up acne to reveal radiant skin underneath. I even credit my miraculous recovery from a terminal autoimmune disease to herbal medicine.
Yes, herbs are powerful! They're accessible, and they're often growing right outside our door, which begs the question: if herbs are so great, why aren't they more mainstream? Why do we regularly see doctors instead of herbalists? Why isn't herbalism a recognized system of medicine?
In this episode, I share three ways you can turn to herbs for healing. My approach is different than what you typically find in Western medicine, and I offer a framework for working with herbs that have worked for me.
