Editor´s Note from Milan Perry: In this video we have a complete understanding from Ed Berger of how herbs are whole foods. Most people that are newly introduced to herbs have concerns about the efficacity of them. Pharmaceuticals are derivatives of herbs and herbs are a diluted form of medicine. Which means they are not as potent, they should be used with care and unlike pharmaceuticals they don't have negative side effects. They have the ability to stimulate certain organs to work better. It is a known fact that 80% of the worlds population uses herbal medicine as their first line of go to defense when the body is weakened.

Organic Living


by Thomas Garran

Albizia julibrissin (合欢) is a commonly used herb in Chinese medicine to calm the spirit. Both the flower and bark are used, and they are both used to calm the spirit, but they also have some differences...
