ANTIGO -
One Antigo woman needed more space to share her folk medicine knowledge.

To keep up with demand, Kelly Keyser-Millar recently moved her 'Mortar and Pestle' shop right next door from its old location in downtown Antigo.

Digestion problems are a common reason that people come into the shop.

She recommends digestive bitters to get your system moving naturally.

"You're taking it 20 to 30 minutes before you eat. Once your digestive system is ready to go, it helps move the process along. Often where people get digestive upset is just that you're really sluggish," says Kelly.

Having a new workspace means Kelly will be busy brewing more new, folk medicine in the coming weeks.
