Community/Family Herbalist

The Community/Family Herbalist Certificate Program was designed for the lay person interested in learning natural ways to treat common conditions for themselves and family, as well as for Health Care Professionals (Naturopathic Doctors, Eastern Medicine Practitioners, Homeopathic Doctors) who already practice medicine and would like to deepen their studies in Herbal Medicine.

After the successful completion of the correspondence units, the student will feel confident to use Herbal Medicine and basic nutritional skills to live with a more natural, balanced approach to health and wellbeing for themselves & their families/communities.

After completion of the certificate, a student may choose to continue their students in Clinical Herbal Medicine by completing the additional courses and Clinical Internship.
