Foundations of Medicinal Herbalism is one of Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine's primary programs. This course requires students to spend one Saturday a month (the third Saturday of each month) over the course of 10 months at Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine, starting September 15th, 2018. Classes run from 9 AM – 5:30 PM on the Saturdays we have class. This course will explore each body system and its physiology, actions, and constituents of the plants and how their medicine can be applied to various ailments and diseases in the body. We will discover the many primary and secondary indications of an extensive materia medica of plants which have been used since the beginning of time. Students will develop a protocol per body system, integrating the knowledge into a usable form. Everyone will create a final project inspired by personal growth and digestion of the information and receive a certificate once all course requirements are complete. This training is for anyone who has a curiosity for plant medicine and wants to learn the foundations of herbalism so they can apply this knowledge in their lives, communities, and family. No prior herbalism or medical training is required, although we do have a lot of healthcare professionals who take this course to augment their practice. Should you have an interest in becoming a registered Herbalist with the American Herbalists Guild, this is a good starting point.
