We always circle back to what works. And thank goodness, these pain killers are killing us.
My family had similar magical matriarchs, from my great grandmother, to Granny, and Mom, but more “witchery” than healing. Thus far, no broomsticks for me.
And I, for one, definitely appreciate your/our/other’s ancestors for their contributions toward healing, but I also appreciate the vapid trendsetters for creating the demand that allows us to expand these holistic remedies into modern medicine. They might not be doing it for altruistic reasons but at least more people are exposed to the benefits of your ancestral knowledge :)
