    What herbs used by Native Americans are you studying? This is amazing research and we're so fascinated by it! Thanks!
    Aurelie Jacquet
    Thank you so much for your message! I have studied many samples ranging from flowers to roots, and I am currently focusing on red clover flowers, elder flowers and the berries of the juneberry tree (delicious by the way!). These are very common plants and they are used by the Blackfeet to treat symptoms that Parkinson's disease patients could have!
