“I believe in medicine that works. After bearing witness to countless loved ones transform with earth medicine, my life has taken on a different path. Because I know now there’s a more connected way to live, I’m using two decades of formal pharmacy education and experience to facilitate ceremonies and train a generation of guides. We are here because of the seven generations before us, and we must act in consideration of the seven generations to come. I’d like to show the world what can be done in a lifetime. Always remember, you are the medicine.” ~ Dr. Trina Nguyen, the Dharmacist
