The Cardiovascular System
Our cardiovascular system is one of the main transport system of the body, moving that vital fluid, blood, which carries nutrients and oxygen to the tissues and removes waste. A healthy heart and circulatory system is said to be the secret of a long life. It is a fact that cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of morbidity & mortality in the US and thus we would consider the saying to be absolutely true!
On Saturday July 8th, the class will cover the subjects of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and pre-diabetes/diabetes. In the Materia Medica, we’ll look at flavonoid-rich herbs such as Hawthorn, Bilberry, Linden, Hibiscus as well as Gymnema, Cinnamon and Red Yeast Rice.
On Sunday July 9th, we’ll continue the theme of the cardiovascular system by explore heart healthy recipes, herbal tea blends & supplements to stay ahead of any health problems as well as specific blends for cardiac tonics for the aging heart, poor circulation, peripheral neuropathy & varicose veins. Herbs such as Buckwheat, Ginger, Prickly Ash, Rosemary, Horse Chestnut and Stoneroot will be covered.
Class is 9am-5pm on July 8th & 9th.
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.
