Fundamentals of Medical Herbalism Evening Track starts January 2nd, 2017!
The classroom training we offer at CSCH begins with the 360-hour Fundamentals of Medical Herbalism program where we learn the tools, terms, and concepts necessary for a solid foundation in Vitalist Western herbalism. The centerpiece of Fundamentals is a 144-hour class integrating physiology, pathology, herbal actions, and Materia Medica. Beginning with the basics of the Vitalist paradigm of healing, we move through the various tissues and organ systems of the body, and the herbs and foods that influence them. Also included are classes in holistic nutrition, field botany, plant identification, herbal medicine-making, flower essences, and herbs of commerce.
Our classroom studies continue with the 510-hour Advanced Herbalism program, the 8-month, 385-hour Clinical Herbalism Program, and our Nutrition and Flower Essences certificates. Students may take Fundamentals alone, Fundamentals followed by Advanced, or Fundamentals through Clinic. During Clinic, students may also complete their Nutrition and/or Flower Essence certificate programs.
A holistic approach for students and practitioners of botanical medicine, Herbal Constituents is a unique addition to the botanical medicine literature. Written in a down-to-Earth style by a traditional herbalist with extensive training in chemistry and botany, this book is designed for anyone who wants an in-depth understanding of how medicinal plants work. Herbal Constituents, which presents the most important concepts and research on phytochemical compounds in medicinal plants, is used in schools and universities throughout the world.
