Herbal Medicine Basics & Simple Home Remedies | Clinical Herbalist Shannon Stone
Play • 1 hr

Humans have used herbs medicinally for millennia. Indispensable in the toolkit of shamans, healers, and traditional medicine folk. Today, despite quick dismissal by Western medicine, well-trained herbalists get astounding results. With a little research and some basic ingredients, you can make your own remedies. To prove this, I brought on an herbalist that nomads around the country in a van.

Meet our guest

Shannon is a clinical herbalist diagnosed with endometriosis at age 19. She lived in misery, following her doctor’s guidelines without any relief. At age 22, they told her that the disease had progressed to the point where she would never have kids. She was also diagnosed with ADHD. Shannon began researching and used herbs, supplements, diet, and lifestyle to completely turn her life around. She got pregnant at age 27 and successfully treats her ADHD. She’s living her best life and helping other women do the same.
