"...both timely and timeless. Whether the reader is suspicious of the high-tech interventions of the dominant healthcare system or thinks vaccines and monoclonal antibodies are great if needed, but what else can I do to keep myself safe, this is a helpful guide." Reviewed by Dr. Mary Minor MORE

FLAWED is a faerie tale mystery for adults, a lush journey through real and spectral worlds. Drawing on Tibetan, First Nation, and Classical mythology, it tells the story of two families: four generations, torn apart by a terrible secret. With the hands of a healer, Herington uses her knowledge of homeopathy, botanical medicine and hallucinogens to unearth the tenuous connections between ancestors and progeny. FLAWED touches on the use of LSD in treating alcoholism, the often fine line between artistic temperament and insanity, and the ongoing debate between allopathic medicine and traditional medicine.
