Podcast Show 141: Herb Lab – Plants for Healing Grief

Grief is part of the human condition. The way that we handle grief can make a significant difference in later life. After last week’s conversation with Ashley Litecky-Ellenbas, registered herbalist, yoga teacher, and owner of Sky House Yoga about the natural approaches to grief, Sue and Candace share their own ideas. There are a bounty of herbs and supplements that can help us heal. Our hosts discuss their favorites.
