Did you know that Native Americans used this plant for a variety of medicinal purposes? It was considered a valuable plant for healing and was commonly used to treat respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis, and coughs. The leaves were also steeped in hot water to make a tea that was used to relieve pain and inflammation in the body. And this powerful plant grows in your neighborhood!

Introducing Herbalist Dave Achula, an expert in medicinal plants and their healing properties.

Dave understands the value of ancient knowledge passed down through generations. At a young age, he was making his own herbal concoctions and experimenting with different plants to find effective solutions for common ailments.

 

His curiosity and passion led him to pursue formal education in herbalism, becoming a certified herbalist after completing rigorous studies in the field. The Native Americans and his own grandfather were well aware of the power of healing plants, but unfortunately, this knowledge has been lost to many in modern times. However, by acquiring these skills, you can set yourself apart from the rest and become a guide or even a savior for those around you in need of natural healing remedies.

comfrey

It's name is comfrey and it heals bones and tissues like magic. It's been called "knitbone" for centuries due to its ability to speed up bone and tissue repair. You can make a poultice with comfrey leaves and apply it to a broken bone or sprain to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate the healing process.

You will discover how to use these plants effectively to treat a variety of ailments, from the common cold to anxiety. Dave will even show you how to prepare a poultice that heals wounds faster and better than modern bandages.

At the end of the Herbal Walk, you'll discover the traditional treatments that our ancestors used to heal themselves when they were sick. These are the remedies that have been passed down through generations and have stood the test of time. I'm talking about the natural treatments that can soothe a cough, ease a headache, and alleviate stomach problems. These simple yet effective remedies use ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen or garden.

For instance, did you know that this plant has been used for centuries by women to ease menstrual cramps and regulate periods? This herb is also known for its ability to enhance lucid dreaming, making it a popular choice for those who want to explore the world of dreams. This herb is often consumed as a tea or used as a smudge during meditation and dream work to enhance psychic awareness and promote deep relaxation. Everything you need is right here in nature.

In Ayurveda, the root of this plant is considered a cooling herb that helps to balance Pitta dosha, the Ayurvedic principle of fire and heat. Pitta imbalance is associated with anger, irritability, and inflammation, and this root's cooling properties are thought to help soothe these symptoms. One clinical study conducted in 2011 found that an extract of this root inhibited the growth of colon cancer cells in vitro.

The best way to deal with this annoying weed?

Eat it!

 

This plant, which Native Americans used as a sweetener two centuries ago, has a taste that surpasses all the greens I've ever tried. What people don't know is that this plant is a...powerful medicinal herb that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat various ailments.

 

The root is known to purify the blood, aid in digestion, and promote healthy skin. It is also rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. So, the next time you see this plant growing in your garden or in the wild, don't just think of it as a pesky weed - think of it as a valuable addition to your herbal medicine cabinet.

              If you rub this plant hard enough you will have Natural Soap.

 

For centuries, people have been using this plant to make natural cleansers for the body and clothes. It is also commonly used in herbal medicine to treat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis due to its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Soapwort is a great example of how nature provides us with everything we need, and how we can use plants in ways we never thought possible.

pine resin

This tree produces a resin that is commonly used in salves and ointments to treat wounds and skin infections. The resin is also used in aromatherapy for its calming and soothing effects. 

 

During the 17th century, the Europeans who were exploring North America were saved by the native peoples who gave the leafs of this tree as a tea to treat scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C. The tea was found to be rich in vitamin C, which helped cure the disease.

One study conducted in 2013 investigated the potential anti-inflammatory effects of this trees bark extract on patients with osteoarthritis. The study involved a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with 100 participants. The results showed that the bark extract significantly reduced inflammation and improved physical function compared to the placebo group.

And this is just a glimpse of what you will discover... The Herbal Medicine Walks are very limited and there are only a few spots and a few walks in a season.

TESTIMONIALS

medicine walk

I had an incredible experience with Dave, who led the 4.5-hour medicinal walk. It truly exceeded all of my expectations and left me feeling invigorated and inspired. I particularly enjoyed the diverse group of people, and Achula's wealth of knowledge allowed us all to learn something new and exciting.

His passion for sharing his love of herbs/plants/nature was contagious and made the experience all the more special. I highly recommend Achula's hikes to anyone interested in nature, plants, herbs, or simply looking to connect with others on a special hike.

I'm looking forward to joining another hike during the summer, and I can't thank Achula enough for such an unforgettable experience.
