On Monday’s show we had Bob Linde, AP, RH Acupuncture Physician, and registered Herbalist (AHG).
About Our Guest
Bob is the owner of Acupuncture & Herbal Therapies and the Traditions School of Herbal Studies in St. Petersburg, Florida. He has been serving the Tampa Bay community for over 25 years. Teaching about medicinal and edible plants that grow in your own back yard. Bob recently completed 12 episodes for INTI TV, “Sanaciones con Bob Linde”, an exploration of indigenous people’s herbal practices. You can stream these episodes on YouTube.
There is a fast-growing herbal community here in Tampa Bay as well as many of the powerful bioregional plants that grow in your own backyard.
The four biggest herbs talked about on the show
A good takeaway is this change to herbs is recommended but not FDA approved.
St John’s Wort Oil: topically for nerve pain and low blood sugars BUT using internally can interfere with LOTS of western medicines (Birth control pills for example).
Bidens Alba (Spanish needle): both edible and so effective and is an anti-microbial. It can be used for a lingering cough. Tsp and tablespoon but chew raw if possible. New leaves and plants have already flowered.
Turmeric: It should be chopped and used in tea for anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, or digestive (Curry).
Golden milk: best to put in the milk of your choice, turmeric, ginger, and a sweetener if preferred.
