Live a less stressed life with Pamela Spence

Anyone who knows me, will know I love coffee.  It’s my morning brew.  My weekend treat with the papers.  It warms me when I am cold and the caffeine kick starts my creativity.  However, I know that too much isn’t good for me, but I struggle when it comes to herbal options.  I work with Pamela Spence, a medical herbalist, and …
