Applications are now being accepted for the September 2016 start of David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies two-year Clinical Herbalist Training Program. Classes will be held in Washington, New Jersey and online via live webcast.
David Winston, RH (AHG), an internationally respected herbalist, is the Center’s dean and has taught the art and science of Clinical Herbal Medicine for over 35 years throughout the U.S., Canada, and the UK. His philosophy is, “Good herbalists treat people, not diseases, and in our program we strive to teach the skills necessary so that each student can accomplish that goal, states Winston. “we focus on materia medica, therapeutics and assessment skills which are necessary to individualize treatment and help patients to not only resolve symptoms, but create constitutional change needed for physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.”
The comprehensive program includes case histories and clinic, phytochemistry of medicinal plants, therapeutic protocols, diagnostics, herbal pharmacy, therapeutic use of nutritional supplements, field botany and nutrition/diet. Unique to this course is the breadth of traditions studied, including Traditional Chinese medicine, Eclectic/Western herbal medicine and others.
