Podcast Show 161: The Changing Face of Herbalism
After talking with Thomas Easley, Director of the Eclectic School Herbal Medicine and founder of Functional Herbalism, Sue and Candace evaluate how herbalism itself has changed over the last few years. Challenges to wildcrafting, cultural appropriation and lack of unity within the herbal community itself has stirred up a need for revisions in the herbalist way of life. Perhaps the time for evaluation is overdue.
