"Each species [of herb] is alive with an inner life, a flash of energy from the Divine fiat, which is the guiding rule, the life, the purpose of that organism. Each of them represents a lesson, an awareness, a piece of ancient wisdom which we can perceive and learn from, enriching our lives and giving us meaning. The conjunction of their essence with our own brings us knowledge, life, and healing"
-Mathew Wood in The Book of Herbal Wisdom
Can you tell me what herb to use for my condition?
As a farmer I can not diagnosis nor treat any medical condition. Any written, verbal or website statements are not intended to diagnose, prevent, treat, or cure any medical condition and have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. All information provided by this website, Farmer Melody or Pleasant Valley Botanicals is for educational purposes only. Especially if you have a significant medical condition, are taking prescription medications, or are pregnant or nursing, I recommend that you speak with your health care provider and/or trained herbalist. As with all foods or herbs, if you are trying something new for the first time start with a low dose; if you experience any unusual symptoms, stop using that herb. Use common sense. Take the time to learn about herbs from reliable sources- I have included several recommendations on my resources page.
