Southern Folk Medicine by Phyllis Light - Chapter One read by Heather Irvine | 88

As someone who listens to a lot of audio books, I’m really excited to publish today’s episode! Listen in as Heather Irvine narrates the first chapter to Phyllis Light’s new book, Southern Folk Medicine.

It’s a great book and a great reading! Thanks to Phyllis for sharing such fantastic storytelling and information, and thanks to Heather for taking the time to read this for us.


Survival was more important than modality purity.

Simple practices of folk medicine develop to assist in the every day life, health, and prosperity of ordinary people.

Even if you are not aware of it, you’ve probably practiced some type of folk medicine.
