This has been a dream of mine for many years now but living in an apartment in New York City has limited my ability to do so.

Dr. Pamela Yee, MD is our guide today. She is a functional medicine doctor who has been growing her own organic home garden for 12 years. Functional medicine is system biology-based approach to medicine whereby they search and treat the root cause of an illness. Oftentimes, they will use food and herbs as medicine or for preventative measures.
