Letter from the Herbalist
The first of April....the beginning
of a round of crazy days....and months. There's
so much news that's becoming available on what herbs can do.
It's not "new", herbs have always been able to do these
things, but main-stream media acts like it is. I think
people are finally starting to believe that we've been given
ways to maintain good health. We just have to stand up
and say that we are willing to eat right. That's all
it is....eating right and using herbs properly.
And sitting at one of our farmers'
markets and hearing what's wrong with customers, you realize
that people want to do right by their health and some great
doctors are telling them to eat right too. That pills
are not the only wy to feel better. Now breaking the
habit of visiting the market with a giant apple fritter is a
little harder to break. What are you willing to "give
up"? Not that eating right is something you have to
feel bad about. It's even more fun to shop AND finish
not feeling guilty about what you devoured. And don't
think I'm a holier-than-thou person that judges everyine
going by. I suffer from being raised in
macaroni-and-cheese world too. It took me years to
breaak that eat now and feel guilty all day stream.
But if I can do it, the rest of you can too.
