Ayurveda


by Michael Erlewine

In this material, I am not going to try to pursue shamanism as it relates to personal totems, power animals, or to any of the more exotic practices that we might read about in books like those of Carlos Castaneda, and other worthy writers, although these are, of course, very legitimate int...erests. I am not going to skin animals, dig (or take) herbs, draw magic circles, or perform any of the many rituals that you might find in a book on traditional shamanism.

Herbalism

Their flowers vary in color from pink to deep purple and they bloom even before the crocus, bloodroot and trees. As an herbal medicine, they make a good tonic for the immune system, and their heart-shaped leaves were once thought to be an indication of benefit for the health of the heart...

 

Editor´s Note from Milan Perry: Merry Harrison paints a wonderful picture in helping us to see the beauty in growing a diversity of plants in your garden. Even if you live in the city you can benefit from the aromatic flowers of medicinal herbs as well as culinary herbs. Instead of buying basil why not grow it for much less? Enjoy the bouquet of green leaves.
