I don't have much of an herbal study background, but have lately become more fascinated. I'm a plant-geek, having studied all kinds of plants at Longwood Gardens in their certificate in ornamental horticulture program. I started in 2001 & between babies, have gone back for classes when I can. Recently they've increased their classes to native plants (which I've always had a thing for) & herbs.
I also started using herbs for health. I drink nettle & spearmint infusions daily (multiple times/day) & have been taking saw palmetto to try to regulate some out of whack hormones. I'm still nursing Ds, so am limited in what I can take for this, atm.
If money fell into my lap, I'd sign up for that nutritional therapy course & some herbal education. I think they'd tie things together nicely.
So, I do have a question. My chiro just ordered new x-rays, full set of spinals, so a few different shots. I think I remember reading about certain plants that were beneficial in preventing damage from radiation - but I can't remember. I recall that spiderwort stamens will change color in the presence of radiation, but that's not really what I'm looking for.
