Sue and Candace dig in deep after talking with Nicole Telkes, practicing clinical herbalist and director of the Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine about training/licensing clinical herbalism. The term is murky and without consensus on its meaning, it is poorly applied. When it comes down to it, would licensing a herbalist bring standardization to clinical herbalism?

Thanks to listener Kyle Putnam for her information on the Canadian medical system which we shared in this podcast. Healthcare for all!

Sue formally apologizes to Dr. Jill Stansbury for getting her name wrong on this podcast. She is so embarrassed.
