Applications are still being accepted for the September 2016 start of David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies two-year Clinical Herbalist Training Program. Winston, 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.” The program teaches the skills necessary so that each student can accomplish that goal.
The focus on differential diagnosis skills, materia medica and therapeutics, are essential to individualize treatment 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.
