The Foundations of Herbalism

This year our Professional Herbalism Classes through the Mid-Atlantic School of Herbalism at Smile are following a new format. They can be taken as a continuous year-long course leading on to the second year of the Professional Herbalism course or taken separately as a one day or weekend course for Continuing Education credit (AHG) or simply for interest’s sake.

The Professional Herbalist Program runs over the course of two and a half years (2½). At completion of the first year, students receive a Foundations of Herbalism Certificate. At completion of the second year, students received a Certificate of Advanced Herbal Studies. For those that are interested in clinical practice, there is also a 6 month clinical component. If all stages are completed, students receive a Diploma of Clinical Therapeutic Herbalism.

The course is in executive format consisting of 1 weekend a month over a period of 9 months (contained in 3 modules of 3 months each). Students can begin the course at the beginning of any of the modules as they are all self-contained. Study between classes is required.

Each of the 3 modules is $699 for a total of $ 2097.00 for each entire year. The clinical component is 2 modules of 3 months for a total of 6 months and is $800 per module. Any class payments can be paid in installments, if desired. Students may also choose to take classes one day or weekend at a time for $150 for the day, or $250 for the weekend.

November 4th & 5th: The Nervous System

The true Body-Mind connection is most evident in the Nervous System. If we are what we eat, do we not become what we think? A well-functioning nervous system creates a calm mind and herbal tonics, relaxants and nervines have often paved the way for a relaxed manner & good night’s sleep. We will explore such herbs as St John’s Wort, Valerian, Kava and Jamaican Dogwood for anxiety, insomnia and the blues.

Saturday November 4th: We begin this weekend’s module with a look at herbs to balance the air element specific to the Nervous System. These include Withania, Shatavari, Eleuthro, Triphala and Haritaki. The class will also look at organoleptic qualities of herbs. In the afternoon, we’ll cover Nervous System physiology and conditions such as depression and anxiety. Case histories of these conditions will showcase specific nervine and sedative herbs and formulations of herbal blends will be explained. The students will put together a herbal formula & do a taste test of it.

Sunday November 5th: We’ll begin the day by looking at Nervous System actions and delve into the concept of herbal adaptogens reviewing such herbs as Holy Basil, Rhodiola, Astragalus and Ginseng. We’ll also look at the conditions of headaches & migraines and go over integrative protocols for them. In the afternoon we’ll finish up the weekend looking at protocols and herbs for insomnia. We'll go on a herb walk to collect supplies for a sleep pillow and ID plants in the garden & neighborhood.
