Immerse yourself online in the fascinating world of herbal medicine

https://pacificrimcollege.online/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/clover.jpg

For as long as humans have been on the planet, they have been utilizing plants as food and medicine. Early humans would have recognized the benefits that certain plants had on their health and would have held those same plants in high regard. Songs and stories about the origins of these plants and their unique therapeutic effects have been told and sung among cultures around the globe. Truly, plant medicine is a universal connection between all people.

Over time, the use of these plants has been organized into various paradigms of knowledge that have been recorded in clay tablets, written in ancient manuscripts, and carved into rock at historic temple sites. For the majority of human existence, plant medicine would have been the primary form of medicine on the planet. It has only been relatively recently that this knowledge has felt lost to many people. It is now time to regain that knowledge and take your place once again in the lineage of plant wisdom. This fascinating knowledge has been continuously expanded upon and passed down through human history. It is captured in these courses to support your own health and wellbeing.

Program description

Our Home Herbalist Program is a short, self-study program designed to introduce you to the world of plant medicine from your own home. Our instructors lead you through the relationship that plants and people have had over the millennia. You gain grounding in the theories and systems of medicine that delineate the actions and uses of various plants for their health effects. The new skills will be valuable to you for the rest of your life.

This program guides you through beautiful videos of the world of plants and their healing properties. We take you on a stroll through herb gardens and teach you to identify the various families of plants that provide an abundance of therapeutic benefit. This key skill will help you identify medicinal plants in your own neighbourhood. You will be amazed by how many plants around you are actually medicinally valuable!

As you go along in the program, you make your own medicines! There is nothing more satisfying and empowering than learning medicine making techniques to harness the healing properties of the plants that you have grown, harvested, or purchased. Our instructors lead you through the preparation processes of both internal and external herbal preparations. These include teas, decoctions, tinctures, syrups, capsules, creams, salves, and more. Having control over your own medicine is a critical and essential skill when looking after your own health and that of your loved ones.

This was an incredible learning experience that awakened a beautiful relationship with the plant world around me. I am forever changed!

What our students are saying…

Being a parent, it was nice to see I have some control over the types of products I can use to maintain the health of my family. The fact that I can make them myself and control the ingredients is liberating!

I was amazed at how much we can incorporate plant medicine into our daily lives! It was great to see ways they can be used in the foods we prepared and preparations other than teas and tinctures! It was really eye-opening.

I feel so empowered and grateful for taking this program that I thought I needed to share this with you. Spreading such a beautiful knowledge is an immeasurable positive contribution to this world and our people. Thank you very much for working hard to put this all together!
