Western Materia Medica I and II covers the broad diversity of medicinal and healing plants used by Western Herbalists. This includes medicinal plants and fungi from all over the world with the exception of China and India, which is covered in Traditional Chinese Materia Medica (TCMM) and Traditional Ayurvedic Materia Medica (TAMM).
WMMII wraps up the systems approach began in WMMI by finishing herbs for the Immune System and herbs that influence Metabolism (thyroid focus). We then go on to explore botanicals for pediatrics, geriatrics, parasites, wound healing, cancer processes, pain, phsychotropic/entheogenic herbs, toxic herbs, medicinal mushrooms, and more.
WMMI and WMM II can be seen as the “tying it all together courses” in the area of herbs used by Western practitioners for the betterment of their patients and themselves, learning to assess the person in front of them and how to create custom herbal formulations for someone using the herbs in the materia medica.
Students will be expected to be familiar with many herbs already, such as those learned in Herbology I as well as have at least an introductory background in pharmacognosy as learned in Herbology Advanced, as well as having taken WMMI.
Western Materia Medica I & II are bundled into (and prerequisites for graduating from) the Practical Herbalist Diploma program. They may also be taken on their own following Herbology 101 & Advanced (or equivalent).
