Our Herbal Medicine diploma course offers a thorough study of the clinical practice of Western Herbalism, including an extensive 116 herb Materia Medica, plus dozens of herbs for Naturopathic support, study of formula creation and traditional herbal remedies, the chemistry of herbs, herbal medicine for menopause and other life phases, herbal remedies for independent heath, tincture, fomentation, poultice, ovule and infusion preparation, herb wildcrafting and herbal pharmacy creation (see below for course topics).
This study is fully integrated with the study of Iridology and Healing Diets, so that herbal recommendations are informed by knowledge of systemic and constitutional strengths and weaknesses of the individual and fully supported by cleansing and health building approaches to diet.
Herbal Medicine is a multi-dimensional field of opportunity that students explore with our strong foundation based on personal experience with self-healing and hands on classes. With a potential future with private practice, growing or harvesting herbs, creating products, creating or working for ethical natural product companies, spas, health food stores or clinics, running booths at festivals and fairs, and combining herbal nutrients with other therapeutic modalities, students turn what they love into a life they love to live!
The Master Herbalist diploma course combines online study of Herbal Medicine, Healing Diets, and Iridology with the Self Healing module, Summer Immersion I, Summer Immersion II and Clinical Training.
