This 10-month, 300-hour therapeutics course is the second of three courses in the Clinical Herbalist Training Program. The content builds on the Foundations course, which provided an in-depth education on plant identification and individual plant uses, and now focuses on advanced therapeutic strategies in assessing an individual and providing treatment. Students will focus on disease processes and subsequent application of their herbal knowledge to treat the underlying condition.

Stimulating and fun, the Therapeutics program involves the completion of an individual research paper, the creation of complex case studies on each body system, and an understanding of the complexities of herbal formulations and medicine making. The goal is to give clinicians the well-rounded tools needed for working as professional herbalists.

At the conclusion of the course, students will have a firm foundation in constitutional diagnosis techniques and the ability to evaluate herbal combinations and formulate with confidence. They will also be provided with a sizable amount of educational handouts and worksheets.

Students completing the course will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in Therapeutic Herbalism.

Therapeutics will cover the following:

  • Advanced herbal preparation

  • Botanical field study and identification

  • Clinical case studies

  • Constitutional theory and therapy

  • Creating a business, advertising and legalities

  • Herbal medicine formulation

  • Pulse and tongue diagnosis

  • Pathology and herbal research

  • Record-keeping and case histories
