Recently I asked the amazing ethnobotanist on our team - Prof Michael Balick @MJB to write a short story about this amazing plant we are activating with the current (S3) Pioneer Program. I also asked our lovely medical herbalist Pamela to add a few comments (and thank you @pamelaspence) …
Mike has been an amazing inspiration to me in his experiences and travels of studying the role of people, plants and culture - and the history of the practice of natural medicine that has been coded in cultures from around the world - and still practiced by many indigenous and traditional societies (I love particularly an article he wrote about the lunar cycle and the impact it had on the time of harvest and potency of a plant … a small nod perhaps to our sofi moon)!
I got his draft of this story a little while ago and love to know what you think of this initial draft. Hope you like it!
What a great listen……so informative and so many benefits from Ashwagandha.
I’m so glad I am involved with the trial as although I still consider myself youngish (60 going on 30!!) it’s great to know that there are so many benefits for the elderly. Thanks for sharing @Kaveh.
