When a soldier returns from the battlefield with trauma, there is no single effective approach to welcoming them back into society. A tireless advocate for access to plant medicines for veterans, Ian Benouis sees the integration of these options into treatment plans as a vital tool for helping veterans heal. During his own military career, our guest participated in the War on Drugs at the international level. After discovering plant medicines in his own healing path, Ian became an outspoken supporter of natural choices for veterans suffering from physical and emotional trauma. This has led to his efforts connecting veterans with plant medicines and his work as a lawyer and activist for plant medicine organizations and churches.
