We love this recent interview that The Sun magazine did with herbalist and author Stephen Harrod Buhner. As a teacher and writer, Stephen has made an incredible contribution to the modern world’s understanding of the power and depth of plant medicine. We have tremendous respect for his work and thought you might enjoy this interview as much as we did.
"I’ve found that if people are ill, the plants they need are almost always growing in their vicinity. I’ve watched plant populations change around me in places I’ve lived for thirty-some years, and they seem to shift in response to changes in my own disease complexes. This sounds airy-fairy to the Western reductive mind-set, but people have been commenting on it since Hippocrates. Plant populations rise and fall according to the needs of the ecosystem in which they grow, and that includes the animal life there, which includes us.”
