Online course

On line Herbal Medicine / home remedy course

An opportunity to study the living practical tradition of herbal medicine, and learn how to skilfully use medicinal plants and herbal medicine strategies to help yourself, your family and your friends.

Introduction

This is an exciting time to study plant medicine. Many of us live in diverse communities that are fed by the wisdom and experience of many different traditions.

The course does not aim to train individuals to be practitioners, but it may be an opportunity to explore whether herbal medicine is a profession you might want to pursue.

In our homes we deal with coughs, colds, fevers, cuts, bruises sprains, on a daily basis. These are the ordinary bread and butter of home remedies. The course will provide strategies for dealing with these and information about when it might be necessary to seek expert help.
