In this special series of Podcasts, Nick from the Veterans' Growth Podcast team, a Veteran himself ,talks to both veterans and organisations that are there to help. Nick often asks the hard question and get the facts needed to help our veterans community.
Here at Veterans' Growth in our podcasts we are keen to offer a wider perspective of alternatives to veterans so that they can make informed choices or use the information from our podcast guests as a good starting point to increase their knowledge.
We are very fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak with Karen Lawton. Karen is a herbalist and one half of the Seed SistAs ( www.sensorysolutions.co.uk ).
Herbal medicine (also Herbalism) is the study of medicinal drugs obtained from plants or other natural sources and the use of medicinal plants. Plants have been the basis for medical treatments through most of human history, and such traditional medicine is still widely practiced today.
In the podcast, Karen speaks about the importance of herbal medicine and the positive impact it can have on a person either as a stand-alone or in addition to pharmaceutical medicine.
The Seed SistAs believe that a positive shift occurs in each person that is educated about the harvesting and utilisation of herbal medicine. Herbalism is a system that takes the pressure off the NHS by empowering people to treat their minor ailments with abundantly growing herbs and a system that builds healthy communities by connecting people to their local plants, to each other, good health and the beautiful Earth.
Karen says " Open your senses to a world waiting to meet you. Right outside your door are hundreds of herbal friends that can open you up and connect you to a supportive web that never leaves your side, all you have to do is listen closely. Plant medicine is all around us, it is of the ancestors and of our future. We cannot turn our back on nature, we can choose to evolve and to become Nature’s advocates and protectors. "
Karen as part of the Seed SistAs has an on-line shop and is the co-author of " The Sensory Herbal Handback ". She has an incredible knowledge of herbal medicine and is in private practice.
