Episode Summary

Listen in as Anna Rósa Róbertsdóttir and I explore the many gifts of blueberries. Delicious and rich in health benefits, blueberries are a pleasurable way to incorporate plant medicine into our lives. Anna Rósa has generously shared two fabulous blueberry breakfast bowl recipes for you to enjoy and also a handout with research into the health benefits of blueberries. 

A medical herbalist, Anna Rósa has been running her own clinic in Iceland for over 30 years. She has seen herbs help people with supposedly incurable diseases to regain wellness time and time again in the course of her clinical practice.

It was such a pleasure to spend time with Anna Rósa and I’m excited to share our conversation with you!

“[In my clinical practice], I get all the difficult diseases, all the not common ones. And so, I’ve seen it a lot. Herbs absolutely do it. Of course, you have to change the diet and your mind and all that, too, but the herbs are really, really powerful.
