I began my personal study of herbs and plants over 30 years ago.  I find it fascinating - enlightening - useful.

Several years ago - I asked Dr. Rebecca Linger to come here to help me with a Horse Camp that I was hosting.  I wanted her as a Master Natualist to come to Golden-Are Farm, take kids on a walk around the farm and teach them about the plant, herbs and critters that grow and live here. 

Rebecca - is my friend.  Over the last several years we have learned together, educated each other on different aspect - but we have also formed a wonderful bond.  So when she wrote this book - heck yeah - I want to celebrate her!  and her co-author Dr. Dennis K. Flaherty, Ph.D. 

It is common knowledge that there are safety issues associated with the use of herbal products. The lack of quality control in the commercial manufacturing of herbal products, insufficient studies into the mode of action, potential adverse reactions of taking the herbal by itself or with other herbals, and interactions with existing pharmaceuticals all contribute to the risk of using herbal remedies.
