Maya was set on a goal: to enhance her family’s health through the use of herbal remedies. To get started, she bought books, subscribed to relevant YouTube channels, and joined various social media groups.
Despite her efforts, the sheer volume of information she encountered soon became overwhelming. The questions mounted: which sources were reliable? Where should she start?
From my three decades of experience training individuals like Maya, I’ve deduced three essential elements needed to effectively learn herbal medicine.
