Making Your Own Herbal Medicines Doesn't Have To Be Hard

Skip the over-priced remedies found in stores by gaining the confidence to make your own effective medicines at home!

If you're anything like me, and I bet you are since you've made your way here . . .

In your search for true health, you've likely found yourself in natural food shops or even your local grocery store many times.

Staring down the aisles of herbal remedies and supplements . . .

Chatting with the super-helpful sales associate as they recommend ever higher priced bottled remedies.

And trying desperately to get all you need without massively blowing your budget.

Then, you get home and sit down to read through the labels on your pricey supplements, only to find that so many of them have fillers and sneaky names for industrial by-products marketed as "natural" vitamins and minerals.

I've found that even some of the most "reputable" brands in high-end natural stores go to great lengths to hide what's really in their bottles.


After years of spending $1000's on premade herbal remedies, and still often getting home with less-than-great-quality supplements . . .

I finally decided to become my own Medicine Woman!

And, like our ancestors past, I want to show you how you too can take back control of your health care, ensure you're receiving the most benefit from natural remedies, and become confident in making your own herbal medicines.

Are You Ready To Start Your Journey As A Medicine Maker?

Long before Tylenol, Bengay, or Nyquil, there was herbal medicine.

For as long as humans have existed, we have been exploring and making herbal remedies.

Proven remedies, passed down for ages, that are still as effective as big-brand bottled pills bought from today's store shelves . . .

And often pose much less risk of harm than "modern" options.

​This knowledge originated ​out of ​thousands of years of ​careful study by medicine women and men worldwide.

People who practiced the art of releasing the essence of hidden cures buried in the roots, leaves, and flowers of their native plants.

And who diligently passed on their knowledge, generation after generation.

One plant's root could ease coughs.

Sap from another would soothe burns.

Often, specific processes were vital for getting the full benefit.

And the medicine maker always knew exactly what their remedies contained.

Yet, despite their efforts, our modern era has largely forgotten this time-tested knowledge.

Even those who already trust in the powerful medicines that herbs can offer continue to purchase premade herbal supplements.

  • Supplements that are frequently more filler than herb . . .
  • Contain chemically derived compounds or improper preparations that your body isn't able to utilize well . . .
  • Which then sit in storerooms and on shelves for who knows how long . . .

This doesn't sound like a recipe for effective herbal medicines, now does it?

Instead, imagine how empowered you'd feel if you knew you could make those same herbal remedies in your kitchen.

And, for a fraction of the cost of what you pay for store-bought remedies.

Learning to become your own herbal medicine maker will put you in control of:

  • Where and how your herbs are sourced—Using only the highest quality herbs available that have been grown organically (or even better, herbs you’ve grown yourself or carefully wildcrafted).
  • Exactly what each of your herbal remedies contains—Avoid all the unneeded fillers, chemically-derived preservatives, and questionable ingredients.
  • Your health-care budget—You'll be blown away by how much money you will save!

But, Learning To Make Medicines From Plants Seems So Complicated . . .

One of the most common things I hear from inexperienced medicine makers is how confused and overwhelmed they often feel when starting.

Even those who have become comfortable making a couple of preparations are sometimes hesitant to expand their skills.

And it doesn't help that Google is so full of conflicting information. It's easy to find an overload of information on any herb or preparation . . .

But how do you know what you can trust?

Which of those 20+ different recipes is best for the medicine you want to make?

Do you really have to buy all those obscure ingredients?

It's not as difficult as you might think!

Making herbal medicines can be as simple and as natural as the herbs themselves.

You only need a little guidance from a trusted expert to become confident in making the 8 herbal preparations that every home medicine maker needs to know.

In this 8 week class, you will gain the skills necessary to become your own Medicine Man/Woman.

Dr. Patrick Jones will walk you through everything that you need to know from learning the names of plants to making your own salves and tinctures (along with so much more in between!). This course contains extensive knowledge that will be vital to building your own in-home medicine kit to treat many common ailments that we face from first aid to treating the flu.

What Is The Difference Between The Free Level Of Membership And The Academy Membership?

What exactly will be delivered to me when I become an Academy Member?

On the 1st Wednesday of each month, you'll receive a special "Did You See This?" email from us; We send links to resources available to Academy members only (new eCourses, Resources, eBooks, etc.)

You’ll know it is from the Grow Network’s Academy as the subject line will read “[Lab] Your name, ….”

Here is what mine looks like:

3 Things The Academy Is NOT

We are focused on real solutions, and we avoid some topics as other organizations better serve them.

We are:

Non-Political (actually, most of us think politics is a completely rigged game, and at best, it’s a form of distracting entertainment. We have folks from every political stripe, and we all agree not to waste much time arguing over that. We do love to laugh at politicians from time to time, though). ;)

Non-Dietary (vegan, paleo, south beach, fruitarians, Adkins, Weston-Price, OMAD. . . everyone is welcome here.)

Non-Denominational (almost all of us have a deep spiritual connection, we are open to all. We come from almost every religion possible Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Pagan, Muslim, Atheists, and everything in between.)

What Our Academy Alumni Have To Say

Sandra Richardson

"I am engrossed by the volumes of rich content that you supply on the Grow Network. I call myself a perpetual student. So, being a member [of the Academy], I love all the certifications you have out there. I am currently trying to work my way through every single one of them! And I love the currency of the information that you post. There’s more of it than I can actually go through. Which I find gratifying because I never get bored with it."

Chris Devinenzi

"A lot of times, people just get paralyzed, and they don’t know what to do. They have so much information but no knowledge of what to do about it. But you make it simple. And that’s what’s so good about the Grow Network. You should say, “The Grow Network - we make it simple!"

Scott Sexton

"I am a terrible gardener. I love plants, but I’m just not good at growing them on purpose. After I took the Instant Master Gardener Course, all of a sudden, everything started growing for me. I had so much more success than I had in the past; it was like night and day. Best of all is that the course is part of the Academy Membership, and it’s been one of the most valuable things I’ve gained from being a member."

Rose Donovan

"The Grow Network is really a breath of fresh air. The videos and courses give in-depth information, but yet they’re easy to understand and follow. There’s a wealth of information here. I love being able to find the resources I need quickly."


Theophilus W.

"As a near middle-aged individual living in the heart of a large city, who doesn’t own or possess the typical resources and skills needed to survive comfortably [finances, vehicle, skilled trades/education], this Network truly is inspiring - especially now under current events. It’s reignited a sense of purpose to devote my energy towards, as opposed to striving and maintaining a “pawn” lifestyle. Here’s to another forty years - full of “actual nourishment” to soothe and refine the soul, and hopefully those closest to me as well. It is greatly appreciated Grow Network!"
