Certificate:Herbalism Certificate

Herbal therapy is the oldest and most widespread form of healing on planet earth! It is currently experiencing a revival in North America (since the mid-1980s), after a lull which transpired from the early 1900s with the advent of orthodox medicine and its array of drugs. Generally regarded as safer and just as effective (if not more effective) as orthodox medicine, herbalism is a science and art that can be successfully learned and utilized by the lay person. Through the use of tinctures, glycerites, teas, capsules, poultices, compresses, and salves, students enrolled in this course will learn to apply herbal therapy to support the constitution with reference to an array of conditions from A to Z, in consideration of guidelines as to indications, dosage, and contraindications. 

Instructor: Matthew Alfs, M.H., A.H.G. is a practitioner, educator, and writer in the field of herbal therapy. He is a nationally peer-reviewed professional member of the American Herbalists Guild, the Director of the Midwest School of Herbal Studies and has authored numerous articles on herbal therapy.
