There are times when a person must go to the doctor for acute or chronic conditions, but there are so many times when we can take care of ourselves at home or in the field. 

When we address injuries with herbal methods and do so in a competent fashion (which you will learn in these classes) we help strengthen the body and immune response because we help the body in a holistic manner, addressing the whole person, which aids the self-healing mechanism.

These classes will help you:

  • Increase your knowledge and understanding of health concerns that can be addressed at home.
  • Feel more confident in yourself, your body, and local herbal resources.
  • Build your understanding of what you can remedy without, before, or while going to the doctor.
  • Know herbal remedies that can help when one really must go to the doctor or hospital.
  • Learn herbal remedies that help in ways that drugs may not.
  • Learn how to take care of yourself, your family, and your friends with holistic and low-cost remedies that you can often find in your backyard or local herbal shop.
  • Know precautions one must take, for example, with those taking blood-thinning drugs.
  • See how to address health issues from an energetic rather than solely diagnostic perspective.

Learn herbalism from herbalists, the way herbalism has traditionally been taught.

There is no way to translate theoretical knowledge from pharmacological research into successful herbal practice. There are mechanics and patterns that are ignored by science but are the keys to the right application. 

Even practical outlines, which are at first theoretical (the three stages of healing: inflammation, granulation, remodeling formation), the laws of healing (similars/contraries, the law of direction of cure, and the law of the healing crisis) are best taught in stories that are impossible to forget.

We know from years of experience that the best way to learn this kind of skill is through telling the stories of what we have experienced. The stories remain in the mind when the theories float away. Our best teachers taught us with their successes and misses.

This is not a theoretical class. 
It is based on decades of experience, case histories, and real events. 

Herbalists Matthew Wood, MS, Phyllis D. Light, MA, and Lise Wolff, RH (AHG), MSc share their herbal cures and knowledge - with more than 100 years of professional experience combined!

There will be a bit of overlap in content with the Family Herbalist Course (16 hours of remedies for commonly occurring physical and emotional issues), but this short series will focus on more extreme cases from the experience of three practitioners and teachers with over 100 years of combined experience.
