Western Materia Medica I and II will cover 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 will be covered by our coursework in Traditional Chinese Materia Medica (TCMM) and Traditional Ayurvedis Materia Medica (TAMM).
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 II.
WMMI might be looked at as a “tying it all together course” in the area of herbs used by Western practitioners who use herbs for the betterment of their patients and themselves, consistent with the mission of our College.
Includes: 11 lessons – 11 Quizzes – Final exam – Official Letter of Completion
