Western Herbal Medicine Classes

New classes offered by Natural Health & Wellness School of Natural Medicine.

Back Yard Medicine


Master Herbalist Program

(These two programs have been merged to form one class)

This program is offered on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 until 5:00 PM. I am sure that we will be staying late most days with questions and answers, but that time is not required as part of the program.

The next class will start July the 28th and run threw September 22nd, with no classes on September 15th.

The Back Yard Medicine class is a VERY hands on program that will introduce participants to locally grown and or widely available Herbs and plants that can be utilized to better your health.

The curriculum covers:

  • Identification of over 60 different herbs and plants
  • How to grow many of the Herbs and plants discussed in the program
  • How to use the herbs in ways such as:
  • Teas  ,  Tinctures,
  • Syrups  ,  Salves
  • Compresses  ,  Poultices
  • Infusions  ,  Oils
  • Ointments  ,  Butters
  • Wines  ,  Baths 

This is the introductory part of the program to the second half. Each student will be given a small amount of each of the herbs we will be discussing in the class. No tests are given, but students are encouraged to go home and use their herbs to make their own herbal remedies that they have learned in class.

"Master Herbalist Program"

The Master Herbalist Program class will discuss body systems and conditions of the human body. As we discuss these ailments of the body we will apply the uses of natural herbal compounds in the treatment of these ailments.

The curriculum includes:

  • Legal and Ethical issues in Herbal medicine
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology
  • Systematic approach to identifying illness and their causes
  • Western Medical Terminology
  • Back Flower Remedies
  • A review of body pH
  • Herbal Treatment methods
  • Amino Acid treatment methods
  • Vitamin treatment methods
  • Essential Oils treatment methods
  • Herbal dosages
  • Meditation
  • Weight Loss Management
  • Food Therapy

The program is very information packed, and time is built in for some discussion and questions. However, time will also be available after the class for further discussion of the Herbs and their application for use.

The fee for the entire Master Herbalist Program is $450. A book with all the slides and all the information covered in the program is now handed out on a memory stick, so you have it entire program digitally! 

I owner finance the cost of the program so the tuition can be paid out in installments over the 8 weeks of the program.

The class will fill very fast! I will teach a  second class one week after the first class ends. If demand is high enough, I may continue this program year round and may even make it available during the week in the evenings.
