Herbs have been used for centuries, particularly in Ayurveda.
With a burst of recent studies in pharmacology and medicine, herbs like ashwagandha, kava, maca, rhodiola, schisandra, tamanu oil, cat’s claw, dragon’s blood, and ayahuasca are gaining popularity in mainstream medical applications.
Chris Kilham, who CNN calls "The Indiana Jones of natural medicine," has been studying these herbs for years and has traveled to over 45 different countries to conduct medicinal plant research.
In this episode, Kilham joins host Lisa Davis to share stories from his journeys, as well as discuss why herbal medicine has a place in modern medicine. Specifically, he will explain the benefits of ashwagandha, which promotes overall balance in the body.
