This live online course focuses on specific uses of herbs (materia medica) organized by body system, holistic physiology, contraindications, drug interactions, interview techniques, formulation, and more. We dive deep into the interactions between body systems and how disparate symptoms can indicate deep-set imbalances. Although classes are titled for a specific body system, each class discusses numerous systems as we see them cooperate in the body. We weave in principles of holism, synergy, energetics and more. There are monthly readings and assignments to help you internalize and personalize your learning including assessment, formulation, energetics, food as medicine, and more.
This course is appropriate for the intermediate and advanced student, so please have a basic understanding of herbal medicine. Please reach out to me to discuss if the class would be a good fit for you, if you have any concerns.
This online course takes place live via webinar 1 Sunday per month from May through September, from 11 AM to 3 PM. This course is much more effective when taken as a whole, so single-class registrants will be accepted only on a case-by-case basis.
