Ron Teeaguarden , Master Herbalist at Dragon Herbs

I had the pleasure of visiting Ron Teagarden’s  Dragon Herbs Health Emporium at Santa Monica late last year.  Ron’s Place is the real deal and here is a picture of Ron giving a mini herb consult to a customer . When I was there I had a dreadful sore throat and although Ron was not there one of his herbalists was on duty at the counter and suggested something that could help.  ( i took the herbal capsules  for the rest of the day and it certainly helped to resolve my situation  ) . Ron’s place is just off  Santa Monica Boulevard and provides a quiet respite from all the frantic activities on the main strip.  I had heard about this place, but did not know what to expect, but was delighted in its Oriental ambiance and friendly staff. At the Emporium, there is a herbal tea and tonic bar which I decided to try. The tea bar has a variety of teas and elixirs and I decided to have a  cocktail of medicinal mushrooms. Great choice!  The elixir was bittersweet and I  could taste the quality of the mushrooms and feel the energy in my body move!  Wow!  Now I could say more about this place but the purpose of the blog is to give accolades to Ron whom I have followed for decades via his website and give a plug to this place and his book – Radiant Health. Ron is always talking about quality and his place and products personify this.  Well worth visiting his website  for a mindful of information and good  reading –
