Feed Your Wild with Venessa Rodriguez

Apr 20, 2020

Today I’m releasing an interview I did with Dr. Leslie Korn, PhD. We recorded this interview a while back before the pandemic began (pre-Coronavirus), yet the topic discussion remains highly relevant: Nurturing Radiant Health At Every Stage thru Everyday Plant Medicine...  What better week to release such an episode than this week in celebration of Earth day on April 22, which also happens to be a new moon in earthly Taurus. Of course we celebrate earth day every day on this podcast and Dr. Leslie’s new book, Natural Woman, can be an ally to put this into practice in our daily lives.

Her latest book Natural Woman is an incredibly comprehensive DIY herbal medicine book: Dr. Leslie draws from several herbal traditions (the medico-spiritual traditions of Curanderismo (Mexico), Ayurveda, Sufiism, and Northwest plant/fungi use by Native American communities) to address numerous health conditions—acute and chronic—and includes descriptions of how to use herbal preparations for spiritual and ritual use. Safe and effective remedies and recipes: 

This book is designed to serve as an herbal companion for you to consult time and again for trusted guidance that can be shared with family, friends.

In these modern times when we’re losing this custom and tradition of passing of information from elders, it is an invaluable resource especially in the context of this pandemic which highlights the critical importance of health sovereignty, restoring our sacred natural connection with Mama Earth.

In this interview and Dr. Leslie’s book, we explore the sacred connection between herbs and womxn in ALL their beautiful forms.
