That got my interest and each time we go to the village, I always stay by her helping. When I became much older, then I lost my grandmother to death, I started having repeated dreams of an old woman showing me herbs and roots in my dreams and what to do with them. It was at this point; I channeled my dreams into becoming a herbal doctor.
