Herbology Advanced

Herbology Advanced

It may seem that herbal enthusiasm is a recent fad. However, decades of scientific research on plants, and the insights drawn from many cultures from around the world, have led to greater awareness that botanical medicine is a safer, and less expensive health care. The World Health Organization notes that over 80% of the world’s population use traditional healing as a primary form of medical care. North America is simply returning to a form of medicine which it set aside three generations ago. The roots of herbal medicine are still vital.

What are the origins of the interest in herbal medicine? One is desire for greater involvement in one’s health followed by a desire to use less expensive, more preventive methods. There is a greater comfort with natural substances over those that seem remote and artificial.

Whether it is a soothing cup of Chamomile tea before bedtime on up to advanced extracts created to assist the human immune system, as we shall see in this course, botanical medicines should not be underrated or overestimated. Clearly, the public will demand even more knowledge of us in the future and you can get it here.
