SATURDAY, MAY 21, 2016 – Clinical herbalist Justin Garner from Sweet Flag Medicinals Herbal Clinic & Apothecary in Brattleboro, VT, calls in to continue last week’s discussion on WKBK:

Today the subject is a wondrous plant known as KRATOM for easing opiate dependence.

Good things to talk about – French’s mustard for leg cramps?   Finally, a caller asks about high triglycerides...
