Mountain Rose Herbs sponsors five rescued raptors at the Cascades Raptor Center in Eugene, Oregon. We spent a morning recently visiting with one of them: Danu, a stunning osprey. The osprey's diet of live fish and, particularly, its ability to dive into water to catch them, is unique among North American raptors. Danu was one of two hatchlings rescued in June of 2011. We had such a wonderful day visiting with this beautiful raptor. You can see the original video of our visit with Danu on our YouTube channel.  Join our community!

We love a frosty root beer on a hot day! But corporate America has turned this classic drink into a high-sugar, artificially flavored imitation of the delicious beverage it once was. Fortunately, herbalist and naturopathic fizzician, Dr. Glen Nagel, came by to teach us how to make homemade root beer with immune-supporting, healthy ingredients like burdock, ginger, and astragalus. Let’s bring back real root beer! LINKS Original YouTube video Recipe and blog Join our community!

Mountain Rose Herbs sponsors five rescued raptors at the Cascade Raptor Center in Eugene, Oregon. We spent an afternoon recently visiting with one of them: Guapo, a handsome Swainson's hawk. This beautiful raptor was such a joy to spend time with! Swainson's hawks are large, slender natives of the western plains. They are close in size and shape to our more common Red-tailed hawks, but have longer, narrower, more pointed wings, and a smaller bill and feet. We apologize for the chainsaw noise in the background for the first few minutes!  You can see the original video of our visit with Guapo on our YouTube channel.  Join our community!

This episode was recorded at the event ‘Planting the Future: Medicinal Plant Conservation in the Driftless Region’ hosted by United Plant Savers on August 12, 2017 in Wisconsin.  Beyond, sustainable harvest, we look at the long-term future of our landscape, and the special role that plant gatherers have in maintaining its ecology and prosperity. We'll talk about the threats and historical changes to our ecosystems, and discuss strategies to work and grow past them. We can do more than just "reduce our impact"—we can be a positive force to create and maintain vibrant and diverse communities of native plants that are at once productive for us and a paradise for wildlife. Nurturing the land that nurtures us. The Driftless Area will be used as an example for ecological and management concepts that apply everywhere. We'll explore some traditional, mutually beneficial relationships between Native peoples and the plants that support them, and discuss practical techniques for implementing this kind of harmony on our own sacred gathering grounds.

Gather 'round as Appalachian naturalist and herbal troubadour Doug Elliott expounds on the origins, health benefits, and eccentricities of the bright, abundant, and versatile common dandelion. He also graces us with a tuneful ode to this backyard beauty, and once you discover its wonders, you'll surely want to sing along!
"For so many of my patients, much of what’s driving their lack of well-being is rooted in the way they live their lives. Contrary to what science used to think—that we are victims of our genetics—we realize today that there are so many ways we can live our lives that can positively (or negatively) impact the expression of our genes. We’ve gone back to the ways of our grandmothers, leaning on ancient wisdom to inform new habits. Nature and nurture are intricately intertwined in the tapestry that is our lives. The great news is, staying healthy doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Try making these five basics a part of your weekly routine and experience what it will do for your happiness and well-being!" ~Dr. Tieraona Low Dog   5 TIPS FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE Eat whole foods. Rather than reaching for the most convenient processed foods, try to cook meals based around whole foods, and snack on things like nuts and apple slices. Aim for nourishment that is minimally processed, low in added sugars, and diverse. This doesn’t have to mean your food needs to be low in fat or flavor! Some whole foods can be high in fat, like avocados or free range eggs, which we’ve been taught are bad for us, but really aren’t. And with the help of organic herbs and spices, even the simplest dish can be a feast for all the senses (while also making your foods more healthful in the process!). Get rest. Getting the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night and giving yourself mental rest by unplugging during the day—stepping away from your tablet, putting down your smartphone, and turning off the TV—can do wonders for your well-being. Make space in your life for quiet. Nourish relationships. Maintaining your social networks and investing in healthy relationships can be very protective for you. Research has found that people who are socially isolated (a.k.a. “lonely”) experience serious health consequences. Studies have found that being lonely can be as dangerous as smoking, being an alcoholic, never exercising, or being obese. Find time to have dinner with your family, play board games on the weekends with friends, say hello to your neighbor, or take your kids to the nearby park. Stay connected!  Move your body. Research shows that around 60 million Americans over the age of six years old get less than 30 minutes of movement a day. No question, our  sedentary lives are making us sick. We know that low levels of activity are associated with heart disease, type 2 diabetes, lower back pain, depression, and anxiety. Walk your dog around the neighborhood, use the stairs in your office building rather than the elevator, go out dancing, sign up for a yoga class, take a hike; just keep moving. Experience nature. In Japan, there is a common practice referred to as “forest bathing” (or shinrin-yoku), which involves simply being in nature and experiencing it through our five senses—sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. Whether you adopt this lovely practice, or find your own way to get outside and pay close attention to the natural world, I expect you’ll feel less stressedand more content afterwards. For those of us with limited time, it’s easy to find ways to combine many of these tips into one activity. For example, going on a walk outdoors with a friend and leaving your cell phone behind can check #2, #3, and #4 off the list simultaneously. As a physician, I can tell you that all the pharmaceuticals, all the acupuncture, and all the herbs in the world cannot compare to the health benefits you can achieve if you incorporate these five basic tips for enjoying a wonderful life.

A healthy digestive system is absolutely crucial for overall health. From the growing rate of C-sections, to the widespread use of proton pump inhibitors, NSAIDs and antibiotics, to the persistent state of stress many people are living with, there can be little wonder that the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, our foundation, is under siege. This session will explore the powerful role botanicals play in promoting GI health through the appropriate use of bitters, demulcents, nervines, and much more.  Tieraona Low Dog, MD’s exploration of the natural world began more than 35 years ago as she studied midwifery, herbalism, massage therapy, and martial arts before earning her medical degree from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. An internationally recognized expert in the fields of integrative medicine, dietary supplements, and women’s health, Dr. Low Dog was appointed by President Bill Clinton to the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy, served as the elected Chair of the US Pharmacopeia Dietary Supplements and Botanicals Expert Information Panel, and was appointed to the Scientific Advisory Council for the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. She has been an invited speaker to more than 550 scientific/medical conferences, published 40 peer-reviewed articles, written 22 chapters for medical textbooks, and has authored five books, including three National Geographic books, Fortify Your Life, Healthy at Home, and Life is Your Best Medicine. She has appeared on CNN, ABC’s 20/20, and is a frequent guest on the Dr. Oz show and NPR’s The People’s Pharmacy.   This audio was recorded at the Free Herbalism Project hosted by Mountain Rose Herbs on October 14, 2018 in Eugene, OR.  Thanks for listening!

While herbalism is often used to cure physical ailments, Guisepi has found that tea, and especially free tea, can also heal social and emotional ailments.

Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Edes herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything. I was diagnosed with Herpes for the past 3 years but Dr Edes cured me with his herbs and i referred my aunt and her husband to him immediately because they were both suffering from Herpes but to God be the glory, they were cured too .I know is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm trying herbs, Thanks. Write him on WhatsApp on +2348151937428. @dr_edes_remedies deals with (1)Alzheimer virus (2)Cancer (3)HIV (4)Herpes (5)Genital warts (6)ALS (7)Virginal infection (8)HPV (9)Hepatitis (10)Asthma Email him on dredeshome@gmail.com https://dredesherbalhome.weebly.com
