In this time of healthcare confusion and a significant rise in chronic illnes and cancer, where are we looking for our medicine; at the bottom of a pill bottle or a life altering therapy that decreases our quality of life to a place that we no longer enjoy life?  Plants that grow under our feet and tree that blow in the wind are the beginnings of medicine centuries ago.  So why are we so reluctant to listen to how they can help us and take the wisdom of the plant to heal us? 

My guest today is David Crow, the world's foremost expert and leading speaker on Botanical Medicine and grassroots healthcare.  David started in acupuncture and herbology in 1987 and has written many essays and books on the story of plants and how important they are for our health and our world.  He is also the founder of Floracopeia, which provide the highest quality of essential oils.

David's work brings to light the medicinal qualities of plants, how they fit into a grassroots healthcare system and why many plants are now becoming extinct.  He has lectured around the world on these topics, written books to share his vision and has created a community garden system in California called The Learning Garden.  We will also be talking about his new book Plants That Heal:  Essays on Botanical Medicine

In this age of looking for 'cure's' for disease, what a novel idea that perhaps we should learn to take care of our health before a significant health crisis is so large that it takes us down.
