Course Description

Plant medicines hold unique promise and potential to help us meet the unprecedented demands of modern life. Chronic disease is on the rise, and life expectancy is falling. The demands of environmental toxicity, man-made radiation, chronic infection and stress place great demands on the bodymind. Immune and autoimmune conditions, cardiometabolic syndrome, diabetes, cancer, fatigue and cognitive decline are on the rise.

Today’s herbal therapy, based in ancient tradition and modern science, can help us not only survive but thrive in the modern world. Whole-food nutrition, as the foundational underpinning of all therapeutics, make herbal medicine more effective, and in less time.

This two-day training gives you the knowledge, tools and practical strategies for improving your patient care and outcomes with an integrated approach to blending phytotherapy and food-based nutritional support. Learn traditional applications and current research on how plant medicines can increase resilience and well-being for acute, corrective and preventative care.
