Clinical Herbalist Justin Garner, of Sweet Flag Medicinals in Brattleboro, Vermont, joins Becky for a lively discussion of "TONIC HERBS."  We use many plants medicinally for specific purposes, but not on a chronic basis. What are SOME of the plants containing properties that might benefit us with more regular use?
