Natural Nurse® Herbal Certification Course

I have been learning and teaching the medicinal use of herbs since 1964, as well as providing information to thousands of individuals on how to use herbs for themselves, their patients and their families.  As I travel around the world giving lectures and workshops, I get many requests for more in depth classes, and the opportunity to apprentice with me.

This correspondence course will afford you that opportunity.

You can begin by viewing the Herbs for Health Lecture below.

The course is conducted via individual webinar training. I will send you a link to a powerpoint, and then we will mutually choose a time (about an hour) to review the slides. As I discuss each topic, we will go into many aspects that are mentioned on each slide in a much more comprehensive way, giving you in depth data on how to collect, purchase and use each individual herb for yourself and your family. Before we complete each lecture, I will email you a specific assignment that must be completed before our meeting. Depending on the level of the topic, it will be basic or more advanced. For example, I might ask you to go to your local health food store, and read the ‘other ingredients’ and ‘standardization claims’ on a few different herbal products. We will then discuss the significance of your findings. For a more advanced course, I may ask you to identify 2 alkaloid and 2 glycoside substances found in a particular herb, and what medicinal value they have, along with possible adverse effects that they may provoke. Don’t worry, if you are a beginner, we will have covered all the initial classes you would need in order to know how to access that kind of information. Since I am both a traditional wildcrafting herbalist, AND a Professor of Botanical Pharmacognocy, I can take you as far as you want to go. Therefore, this course is appropriate for both the beginner and the professional, who would like to go more deeply into understanding the world of sentient as well as chemical interactions between plants and humans.

You can take this course as an individual, or share it with up to 5 others, since I will send a link to up to five individuals of your choosing if you choose the group rate.

Each class is $ 50 for an individual, or $ 100 for a group.

After completing 5 classes, you will receive a certification. The certification will indicate the number of hours of study, and the level of the course work that you have completed.

I look forward to sharing my decades of knowledge with you, and to learning from you as well, because as a teacher, I am also a perpetual student.
