'Everyone Has a Healing Food; Burdock Root Is Mine'
WE SHARE THIS STORY FROM CUSTOMER LAUREN IN VERMONT TO NOT ONLY CELEBRATE BURDOCK ROOT'S DETOXIFYING POWER, BUT ALSO TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO TURN TO FOOD FOR HEALING.
I have struggled with skin problems for a very long time. I took Accutane, and when that didn’t really work, I realized that I wanted to get to the root of the problem. I found out I had a hormone imbalance and simultaneously was studying the food system. As I got really interested in my health and the health of our food system, I saw how connected the two were and paid very close attention to how the foods I ate made me feel and where they came from.

Fast forward about four years, and now I am taking prerequisites to apply to
Five Branches University in Santa Cruz to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine. I’ve learned so much about food and health and have made a lot of changes. I still was frustrated with my breakouts, although they were much better. A dear friend recommended to me your Burdock Root Powder. She thought “it might be a good one for me.” I researched the company and the root a bit and put in an order.
I have never seen such a consistent difference in my skin. I truly thank burdock root and Dr. Cowan’s high-quality preservation of it. I can’t believeeeee no one has recommended it me before. Burdock root is one of the blood’s most powerful detoxifiers! Of course, it would help my skin! It has also really helped with digestion and overall well-being. I believe there is a healing food for everyone; burdock root is definitely mine, and I honestly won’t get it from anyone else.

We asked Lauren to share her favorite way to use Burdock Root Powder, and here's her response:
"Hmm. I would love to say I have a favorite way to use it, but I really just mix it in everything! I love to cook and make a lot of curry-type dishes and rice bowls, but I also have it with eggs or, most recently this morning, I mixed it with my almond butter on toast with banana and cinnamon."

As winter approaches, it is natural for us to turn inward and contemplate where we have come this past year. For me, this has been a year of tremendous change. We left the city we called home for 17 years; we left our flourishing garden in Napa, which provided about 90 percent of all our plant food; I left my medical practice and retired forever from being a doctor.
For those of you cooking on Thanksgiving this year, remember to expect a few bumps on the way to your big dinner. This past Saturday, I was set to execute a menu very closely resembling the content of our E-book
, but slightly modified for some allergies. It was manageable but still somewhat ambitious. After baking two pies, apple and blueberry, a pumpkin spice Bundt cake, some bread and the cranberry sauce the night before, I was on track. After preparing a big pot of oatmeal to feed everyone staying with us, my propane tank suddenly went dry.
During fall each year, right around the first frost, comes a great time to do some garden maintenance and pruning. New plants that you dug in during the spring and summer will do well with a heavier pruning.
