• The Worst Weeds are your Best Medicine

Speaker: David Winston. Our reliance in the West on an ever-dwindling materia medica has resulted in overharvesting and adulteration. We can help correct this by the inclusion of unused but effective indigenous and introduced species. There are hundreds of such herbs that have long histories of usage by peoples who depended on these plants for their health and well-being but are considered noxious weeds today.
