FDA cGMP project - overview
The landscape of FDA compliance may seem vast, and, indeed, it is. I will tell you, however, that it is not as vast as the landscape of human health and disease: it is much easier to understand than medicine and healing are, and certainly easier to learn. I...

Hi Guido! Sorry for posting this here, but I was looking to get in touch about a possible interview for an article on bitters I'm pitching to a magazine. If you'd like to chat and discuss tincture-making, I would really appreciate the insight and opportunity! My email is megan.patiry@yahoo.com.

Thanks!

What were you doing up there? No herbs? Also, no snow, surprisingly.

Herbal Medicine in East Africa - our first week
The last leg of our journey to Wasso was on a small, six-seater airplane. In fact, we needed two planes to carry our team of four herbalists, one medical doctor, two medical students and my daughter Uli. It was a beautiful day to fly. A slight overcast, wit...

High blood sugar > cholesterol as a cause of heart disease. Review article shows how: http://t.co/eCD8x1nNFU p.s. statins raise blood sugar
Diet has a significant relationship with the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). Traditionally the effect of diet on CHD was measured with the biomarker for low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. However, LDL is not the only or even the most important biomarker for CHD risk. A suitably integrated view of the mechanism by which diet influences the detailed CHD pathogenetic pathways is therefore needed in order to better understand CHD risk f...

Should you feel lost
It's cold enough to start the car ten minutes before it's time to leave - try to find an island of warmth in the sharp, vast morning, set aside respite as you rush through, scrape off soft, thin frost as if it weren't a miracle

FDA cGMP compliance open source project
Our strength as herbalists is that we come together. We share processing tips and secret harvest spots (sometimes - depending on who's asking), discuss difficult cases, and generally help each other learn. This has been evident to me all the way from herbal...

Waterfowl, new moon
... with due respect to the loons ... The great blue heron, so still, is like a standing piece of driftwood, silver-gray cyan, like when wood sees the pond water too long and then, pushed up by a frost heave, sun-bleaches and molders, gathering color. Her n...

Journey to the Kitipa Boma, hospital work at Wasso. Closing this year's integrative herbal medicine / hospital trip.
This boma - a Swahili word that means fence, or fortification - was about a two hour drive from Wasso hospital. We rode with ten other people in a broken-down Toyota pickup, pausing at river crossings to fill the radiator with the thick, greenish-brown water. The Maasai call their homes "engang" ...

A Dram of Bitters
A little something to start the week. It comes from Rebecca Seiferle's excellent collection, called "Bitters", which holds poems that explore, and sometimes celebrate, the challenging times of life. And isn't it curious that, at these times, we as humans ha...
