March 4th & 5th: The Endocrine System, The Urinary System & Hydrotherapy Workshop

Join us for a single day or the whole weekend!

Saturday, March 4th:
This important system is made up of the endocrine organs which include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, the pancreas and the gonads. It controls the hormones that regulate our blood sugar level, rate of metabolism, absorption of calcium, fight or flight mechanism and many other processes. In this class, we’ll look at conditions such as diabetes, thyroid dysregulation and dysfunction including Hashimoto’s and Grave’s disease and examine ways to regulate the endocrine glands through diet, herbs and supplements

9 am -12:30 pm: Ayurveda and the Endocrine System, Diabetes

1:30-5:00 pm: Thyroid dysfunction and dysregulation

Sunday, March 5th:
In accordance with classic TCM tradition which links the kidneys with the adrenals, this class will cover both urinary and adrenal conditions. Beginning with introduction to the urinary system and adrenals, herbal actions and herb profiles for these systems will be examined including such favorites as Cranberry, Uva Ursi Licorice, Rehmania and Corn Silk. We will cover urinary infections, incontinence, interstitial cystitis and adrenal exhaustion and dysregulation.

We will finish up the day with the age old techniques of hydrotherapy including therapeutic sitz baths, steams, foot soaks and inhalations. The historical methods still work wonders for everything from blocked sinuses, BPH, fibroids, chest infections and skin issues.

9 am -12:30 pm: Urinary System herbs and conditions

1:30-5:00 pm: Hydrotherapy and formulation building workshop.

Class is 9am-5pm on March 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.
