From Seed to Herbal Medicine: A Year’s Journey to the Heart of What Really Matters  (February 13, 2018, Warm Springs Library)

*** Information provided below is for educational purposes only. Consult with your medical provider and/or a licensed herbalist before embarking on a journey with herbs. Use of particular prescription drugs and/or the presence of specific medical contraindicate(s) the use of specific herbs.  Merrily A. Kuhn & David Winston’s Herbal Therapy & Supplements, A Scientific and Traditional Approach is my primary “go-to” when looking for contraindications with herbs.

  1. I would like to reach out to Anne using the contact option on the website but the gnomes and faeries must have highjacked that link.

    please reach out to me using the email that I provided so I can reply.

    Thank you,

    1. Indeed! And now the trolls buried your message deep in the caverns of unwanted spam. I’ll pass your message onto Anne and have her contact you tomorrow. I am so sorry for the 8 month delay!
