Expanded Materia Medica

Each plant will be studied in terms of scientific and common names, identification, part used, preparation/dosage, actions/indications, and safety/contraindications. Common formula and treatment protocols will be evaluated. Students will be guided in effective methods of study to retain this vital information to be used in clinic.

Herbal dispensary options

Continue to accrue experience with continued study of decoction, infusion, tincture, percolation, salve, honey pill, and syrup. Learn to assess which is most effective in various situations and with certain populations.

Wisdom gleaned through experience
