Dr. Patrick Jones is a practicing veterinarian, clinical herbalist and traditional naturopath. He is the founder of the HomeGrown Herbalist School of Botanical Medicine. His lecture style has been described as a cross between John Christopher and Steve Martin. When you leave his class, your brain will be full and your sides will be sore from laughing. His engaging and down-to-earth style will leave you feeling truly excited and empowered to use these wonderful plants. Because of his veterinary credentials, Dr. Jones has had the opportunity to use herbs on all sorts of cases that would not typically be addressed by herbalists. Rattlesnake bites, gunshot wounds, serious infections and systemic illnesses of all kinds make up his daily herbal practice for man and beast. Because of the miracles he's seen over the years, Jones has an evangelical zeal to teach others about herbal medicine. His book, “The HomeGrown Herbalist” and his school emphasize self-reliant herbalism and being plant-based rather than product based. Dr. Jones and his wife LoriAnn are the parents of fifteen (mostly adopted) children. They live in Filer, Idaho. More info at HomeGrownHerbalist.net.
