When Barb and I took a ride over to Warner Herb Company on Highway 127 South, we weren’t prepared to meet a fine local gent with 61 years of experience reading the eyes and body politic of so many for so long. John Warner’s medicinal catalog and store has hundreds of natural plant-based medicinal products that he and so many of his customers claim can assist in helping and healing virtually any part of a human's biological needs.
Warner is a highly practiced iridologist. What, you say, is that? He reads your eyes to see and diagnosis "what ails ya!" In about two minutes, he read our eyes. Barb and I were interested, as we already knew some things that he was able to diagnose quite easily without a word from us to clue him in.
Warner told me that he’d been “doctoring” (Warner said he is not a licensed doctor, just a practiced herbalist) people around the area for the past 61 years. “I’d go out and gather wild herbs grown by the good Lord. My gathering place was the fields and mountains of the Cumberland,” he said.
I asked him why this was his passion and found that he’s the kind of gent that wants to help people, and as he continued: “I enjoy giving God given sense to the body politic. Look, for untold centuries down through history, indigenous peoples had no university degrees with licenses, so they used the earth’s botanical bounties they learned to serve themselves for their health needs.” People still can and do this today, worldwide!
We went home with a bag each of herbal medicines.
If you want to learn more about Warner Herb Company and his hundreds of natural herb products, give a call and speak to Tonya Moseley, store manager, at 931-484-2131. She can offer a very interesting medicinal catalog. Warner Herb Company is located at 7365 Highway 127 South, Crossville. Visit www.warnerherbs.com.

The following day after meeting with Warner, Barb and I went to Red Boiling Springs, TN, in Macon County for their yearly Folk Medicine Festival. We met many devotees in the use, gathering and sale of herbal products and botanical plants. There were several opportunities for learning about many different sustainable, back-to-the-earth ways early Native Americans and early settlers went about their daily lives. We, as did the other attendees, were able to be shown blacksmithing, sheep shearing, wool spinning and rendering various wild herbs and plants into all manner of poultices and medicinal products. A guided wild herb walk and show-and-tell was also available for people to learn what and where various wild herbs, flowers, leaves and roots could be identified and gathered. It was a terrific day for so many who came in many cases, from so far to have an outing along the Salt Lick Creek, learning and enjoying quality time with their families.
