Understand how to prescribe herbal medicine safely and effectively

Dive into the world of herbal medicine with our comprehensive introductory course tailored for integrative medicine practitioners. ‘Herbal Medicine Essentials’ offers an understanding of traditional western herbal medicines, focusing on the effective and safe integration of this modality into Integrative Medicine practice.

This course does not aim to transform practitioners into herbalists, nor does it cover the prescription or use of liquid extracts. Instead, it provides a detailed overview enabling participants to make informed, evidence-based decisions about herbal and nutrient formulations, increased confidence in the application of herbal medicine and an understanding of potential herb-drug interactions. Participants will gain essential knowledge about common medicinal herbs, their properties and effective use in a holistic medicine practice.
