Editor´s Note from Milan Perry: In this video we have a complete understanding from Ed Berger of how herbs are whole foods.

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.

Albizia julibrissin (åˆæ¬¢) 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...
Editor’s Note: Albizia is one of my favorite herbs to use clinically. Patients with depression notice a sense of calm and inspiration. Acupuncture helps a lot with depression as well, but if I had my back to the wall I'd pick albizia.
