This is another trip into the past in the Far Out Radio Time Machine. Herbalist & Master Gardener, Jeannie Francis goes back nearly 200 years to the first half of the 1800s in rural Medford, New Jersey. She examines the amazing life of Dr. James Still.
James Still was born in 1812, the son of former slaves. A visit from the doctor at the age of three inspired him to want to become a doctor. Growing up, James only had three months of formal education in the 3 Rs – Read’n Write’n and 'Rithamitic (arithmetic). But if a person has a lofty dream, a vision that they carry in their hearts, and can READ, they can accomplish ANYTHING.
James Still’s life was astonishingly hard and filled with challenges and heartbreak. But the dream that he had at the age of three, of becoming an herbalist doctor never left him. This is an inspiring story of drive, determination, and spirit. James eventually became a doctor and in his later years was the third largest land holder in Medford Township, New Jersey.
Herbalist, Jeannie Francis and I talk about the life and times of Dr. James Still, as well as many of Dr. Still’s herbal approaches to health, wellness, and healing that STILL work! Prepare to be INSPIRED! – Scott
