Herbal Therapeutics Program

Herbal Therapeutics Program

This 10 month, 300-hour, Therapeutics course is the second of three courses in the Clinical Herbalist Training Program.  The content builds on that of the first course of plant identification and individual plant uses and focuses on advanced therapeutic strategies in assessing treatment.  Students focus on disease processes and subsequent application of their herbal knowledge to treat the underlying condition.

Stimulating and fun, the therapeutic course involves case reviews, research and herbal formulating.  The goal is to give clinicians the well-rounded tools needed for working as professional herbalists.  The following is a partial list of what this course covers:

  • Advanced herbal preparation
  • Botanical field study
  • Extensive materia medica
  • Herbal research techniques using on-line computer links
  • Record keeping - case histories, business accounting
  • Creating a business - advertising, legalities, accounting
  • Clinical case studies
  • Understanding medical lab tests

At the conclusion of the course, students will have a firm foundation in constitutional diagnosis techniques, ability to evaluate herbal combinations, ability to formulate with confidence, and the beginnings of a clinical handout library.  Students completing the course will be awarded a certificate in Therapeutic Herbalism suitable for framing and placement on their office wall.
