With fall’s arrival, it’s an excellent opportunity to make some lifestyle adjustments that honor the changes occurring out in Nature. A few examples include: going to bed a little bit earlier each night, slowing down and doing less activity in general, wearing warmer clothes and scarves, saying YES to creative projects and hot baths, strengthening your digestive fire with warm soupy foods, and detoxifying your organs with a simple whole food diet and herbs before the onset of winter. Each will hopefully help you connect to Nature’s rhythm and bring nourishment to you and your family...

Editor´s Note from Milan Perry: Farida Sharan is a well know Naturopath that is a breast cancer survivor like so many women. She used Herbs to assist her body in healing itself. Herbs are whole foods that the body knows how to use to gain the maximum benefits. Patience is needed when taking any herbal treatment since it works in the body differently than pharmaceuticals, it works on a cellular level.

Editor's Note from Dylan Warren-Davis: There is currently a growing trend in biotech companies trying to grab hold of key medicinal herbs and patent them. However it is important to see that herbs belong to the culture that has traditionally used them and that they belong to their common heritage of the people, this is why it is important to respect herbal knowledge within the culture from which it has evolved.

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.
