Gosh! You have an entire health guide there. Nature surely is the best guide, teacher &healer.I too am an ardent fan of Ayurveda(an ancient science of medicine that is more than a thousand year old that uses natural herbs) .Your Mom is worth her salts.Thanks for sharing!

She sounds like she was a real sweet old Lass. Probably she did keep you all much more lively with her herbal magic!
