Podcast Show 129: Herb Lab – 7Song – Herbal First Aid for Large Groups
After an intriguing interview with Herbalist 7Song about the vast scale of emergency care he has brought to our global community over the last few decades, Sue and Candace explore their own herbal first aid for the week. Candace brought healthcare to both herself and her duck. Animals need healthcare just as much as humans do and Candace had to provide it for both of them in the same weekend. Her sinus draining, neti pot recipe is listed below.
Sue runs an integrated healthcare street clinic so her herbal first aid stories were less personal in scope. As 7Song brought up the constant need for foot care when serving the unhoused, Sue talked about the herbs that she relies on to treat everything from trench foot to diabetic ulcers. (Thank you to Patti Leahy from World Energy Healing for devising the herbal compound.)
Herbs in the News involved 2 different news articles on hot topics in herbal medicine: kratom and cannabis. We analyze the illogical way that both government agencies and the media is addressing these pain controlling in an era of opioid-related deaths.
