An Herbal Academy Mini-Course
The Herbal Academy is offering an exciting new mini-course which will be of value to anyone who has an interest in herbalism, from the novice to the expert. The course is now open! You can also upgrade to include the gorgeous Herbal Journey Planner to accompany you on this course.
Becoming An Herbalist explains what exactly an herbalist does on a day-to-day basis. As you may have noticed, explaining the multifaceted role of an herbalist can be tricky. Herbalists may work in the field of wellness, but we aren’t doctors; we may work in a clinical setting, or we may work from home. We might grow herbs, write about herbs, or even sell herbal products. All the while, herbalists must navigate the legal, ethical, and logistical considerations of using herbs with minimal guidance from outside sources, which introduces a whole host of other complications. Here is where the Herbal Academy comes in.
This brief but informative course is intended to provide guidance to your path as an herbalist, exploring the daily responsibilities and complications in the life of an herbalist. Here’s a brief breakdown of the course:
- Lesson 1 looks closely at certification and regulation for herbalists and explores some of the educational options that are available to those interested in herbal careers.
- Lesson 2 will take a look at the language that herbalists use: words you can and cannot use legally, regardless of education, due to the state of herbalism as an unlicensed practice.
- Lesson 3 dives deep into the ethical considerations of becoming an herbalist. The Herbal Academy will five you the lowdown on scope of practice, confidentiality, informed consent, and full disclosure. For those interested in clinical practice, you’ll go over basic red flags, safety concerns, and referrals.
- Lesson 4 will outline key aspects of starting your own herbal business and the many details that go along with each.
- Lesson 5 discusses the importance of keeping your finger on the pulse of herbalism. The way that herbalists use herbs is constantly evolving, with new clinical research being published all of the time and practicing herbalists discovering novel ways of brining balance to human physiology with herbs.
