We go to the San Francisco Bay Area to meet Charles Garcia, founder of the California School of Traditional Hispanic Herbalism. Garcia is a third generation curandero, a traditional healer. He treats the sick with tinctures, vinegars, and other concoctions made of plants, many of which he grows or harvests in the outdoors.
Reporter Lisa Morehouse tagged along with Garcia to find out what it’s all about.
