Saturday, Feb. 4th: The Male Reproductive System
Men of all ages are the focus of today’s class as we focus on herbs to nurture the Male Reproductive system such as Saw Palmetto, Damiana & Nettle root. We’ll be going over conditions such as benign prostatic hypertrophy, prostatitis, low libido and general male tonics to boost energy and endurance. The class includes recipes and samples of ginseng and withania stamina snack balls and damiana and sarsaparilla longevity tonic.
Sunday, Feb. 5th: The Musculoskeletal System & Pain Workshop
Supporting our frame is one of the most important things we can do as we grow older. Our bones, muscles, joints and connective tissue hold us together and wear and tear is inevitable as we age. Exercise and proper amounts of vitamins and minerals are vital but herbs can play a large role in clearing inflammatory metabolites out of joints and easing the creaking and cracking of arthritis. We will cover conditions such as osteoarthritis, repetitive strain injury, carpel tunnel, sports injuries and plain old aches and pains in todays’ class as well as look at effective herbal alteratives and anti-inflammatories and dietary and exercise suggestions. In the afternoon we’ll also be making some topical creams and ointments to have in your medicine chest.
Class is 9am-5pm on February 4th & 5th.
Join us for a single day or the whole weekend!
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.
