#69 7Song on the Science of Herbalism, Free Medical Care, and Pursuing Passion

7Song is a renowned herbalist who has been studying and practicing herbal medicine for nearly 40 years. Having studied under legends such as Rosemary Gladstar and Michael Moore, he opened the Northeast School of Herbal Medicine in Ithaca, New York, and is the Director of Holistic Medicine at the Ithaca Free Clinic.

7Song shares much of his wisdom in this episode. We talk about herbal first aid and many of his favourite herbs for conditions such as fever, pain, and anxiety. We explore the genesis of the Northeast School of Herbal Medicine and the physical herbal medicine that he focusses on in his teaching. And we talk about his many years of experience and enjoyment in providing herbal care for patients of the Ithaca Free Clinic.

The science of herbal medicine is something 7Song is quite passionate about, and he explains his approach to herbal practice versus an energetic approach. He also talks about the great importance of counselling skills to the practitioner and shares his passion of photography of plants.

This is a candid interview with a great herbalist who is dedicated to the ongoing study and research of herbal medicine and to the dissemination of herbal knowledge.

Please enjoy this episode of Pacific Rim College Radio with 7Song.
