Description

March 10th & 11th: The Endocrine System, Medicine Making Workshop

Saturday, March 10th: The Endocrine System, Diabetes & Thyroid

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

Sunday, March 11th: Medicine Making Workshop

On Sunday morning, we will look at the many ways to use herbs internally from teas and tinctures to cordials, syrups and herbal foods recipes. If you have always wondered how to make your own remedies then this is the time & place! Many of the herbs will be taken from Smile’s medicinal garden. All preparations will be available for tasting, so bring your organoleptic senses with you.

On Sunday afternoon, we will look at the external use of herbal remedies including making herbal infused oils and creams, ointments, and healing salves. You’ll learn ways to stock your own home medicine cabinet.


Class is 9am-5pm on March 10th & 11th.
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.
