Before modern-day medicine and the pharmacopeia of synthetic drugs existed, we relied on nature. Nature has bestowed us with a magnificent collection of useful herbs, plants and trees. Ancient civilizations knew how to use plants as medicine to strategically treat common ailments and threatening diseases. Unfortunately, the use of medicinal plants in everyday life has largely been lost in today’s world. We’ve become disconnected with what’s around us.
It’s time to reconnect. So without further adieu, we’d like to introduce you to one of our favorite guests, the renowned functional medicine doctor Tom Malterre. He joins Pedram Shojai and Tami Meraglia for another episode of the Health Bridge. Tom is here to discuss the powerful benefits of plant medicine. The number of useful medicinal plants and herbs that are out there will surprise you! There are plants that can help fight fever, relief pain, and cure different kinds of infections and allergies. Plant medicine is a good alternative because they are low cost and tend to have fewer side effects. Watch this episode to learn which plants are good for what.
