REMEDY: ANCIENT MEDICINE FOR MODERN ILLNESS: DON’T MISS THIS 9-PART DOCU-SERIES STARTING SEPT 5!

This is going to one of those real must-not-miss docu-series, so if you haven’t signed up yet, here’s the link www.thesacredscience.com

I watched Episode 1 THE QUEST FOR LOST MEDICINE this morning (they only air for 24 hrs and each new episode starts at 9pm EST/USA so if you’re somewhere else you need to catch them while you can).

WATCH NOW

Episode 1 covered our ancient herbal traditions, with some wonderful, insightful input by experts like renowned herbalist Rosemary Gladstar along with Tieraona Low Dog, MC and Daniel Vitalis, host of the ReWild Yourself podcasts.

I’ve included some screenshots from my iPad this morning for a flavour of what’s in the first video and there’s more about the series on Instagram www.instagram.com/beautyshortlist

A shocker, for me, came in the segment about the AMA (American Medical Association). Back in the day, around 1840, when it said to layman practitioners “You must get licensed”, it blocked Native Americans, women and negroes (as the documentary says) who weren’t allowed to even apply for a licence!

Yet women, mainly, have long been the primary plant and herb gatherers – the carers and healers, the story-tellers, sharing how such and such a herb helped heal a certain ailment while they picked  herbs together (babies in tow?).

 

 

While the better educated (in those times) men did the dangerous stuff – gathering honey (!) and killing animals and writing ancient books on herbalism.

“80% of the world’s population turns to natural first – and the earth’s plants and herbs” – Nick Polizzi

As David Wolfe says in this episode, disconnection from nature is one of the prime sources of illness, as is disconnection from each other. And feeling isolated is very dangerous – especially if you have a serious disease.

I can’t recommend this enough – based just on Episode 1 – so if you live a plant-based life (or don’t!), you’re vegan (or not), you love herbs and use plants to heal and fortify, I think you’ll love this series. Docu-series like these are rare, so it’s our duty in a sense to share and support them!

“We can’t live without plant medicine…we are 300,000 years old in our current form…but for 200 years we’ve been veering off-course.” – Daniel Vitalis

 

Bravo film-maker Nick Polizzi for a fantastic first episode, I will be watching the next 8!

The series ends September 13th.

“Healing is really about self-empowerment”
