Today, we live in a time when manufactured medicines and prescriptions prevail, but are they the best and only way to heal? Plants are rarely viewed as anything more than objects that can be reduced to a chemical component, or an object that looks nice perched in a corner. However, many people are finding themselves turning back to the medicinal plants. As with many aspects of our natural world, there is so much more to plants than meets the eye. The natural world is full of beauty, nourishment, and healing if you only know where to look. For tens of thousands of years, human cultures around the globe had all of their needs met by plants, animals, and natural resources that surrounded them. For medicine, they could find a finely stocked pharmacy in the roots, herbs, fungi, and trees all around them. These early peoples discovered that plant medicines did wonders to heal physical ailments and so has today’s guest Shannon Mulligan-Mayernik of Mayernik Kitchen. Shannon, who along with her husband Matt, sell over 75 plant medicine products, host plant medicine workshops and classes to introduce more people to the power of what is around us to heal.
