Advanced Botanical Medicine ~ Master Herbalist Program

I just started back to my 'formal' learning again. Yes! I am very excited... and yes, I am really looking forward to working with Vintage Remedies again. The class I am taking this go around is the: Master Herbalist Program... which is explained on their web site as:

 "In this comprehensive program, you will learn how to evaluate the abundance of claims in the health industry to identify and implement evidence-based measures in your home, how to work through advanced home situations, how to utilize rare and specific botanicals, and how to formulate unique products customized for your needs" 

Covering the following topics & concepts... History of Wellness - Evidence Based Natural Health: What it Means; Where to Find it. Foundations of Advanced Herbalism - Immune Function - Digestive Wellness - Probiotics, Antibiotics, Resistance - Botanical Classifications and Taxonomy - Plant Identification - The Skin - Circulatory Health - Respiratory Health - Blending, Dosages, Potency - Toxicology - Endocrine Function and Disorders -The Nervous System - Botanical Safety: Interactions and Contraindications - Adaptogens - Reproductive Systems - Urinary and Muscular System - Applied Aromatherapy - Botanicals During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding - Botanical Considerations for Children - Botanical Considerations for the Elderly - Environmental Health - Nutraceuticals - Epidemiology and Evaluating New Evidence.

My first chapter - History of Wellness is currently marked up with my pink highlighting marker, because there were some key points I wanted to revisit later - along with under lines of point matter I may need for the exam. :)

Herbalism Highlight: many believe herbal medicine began in the Chinese culture, but in reality herbalism began with the origins of human beings - in Genesis - beginning at the same time in history when physical suffering began...

Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: 
teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.

~ Blessings & stay tuned!
