ON-SITE INTENSIVE: INTERNAL PREPARATIONS

This is a 3-day on-site intensive for students to have even greater depth of training in certain specialty areas. These are designed for apothecarists that would like to create a product line or specialize in a certain area of herbal preparations.

Food As Medicine:

This is very different than any cooking or any herbal medicine class you’ll find, as it is a marriage of both! Over 3 days, this course will cover everything you’ll need to feel comfortable working in a brand-new way using food as your medicinal tool!
  • Setting up a safe kitchen at home or in the field. Basic food safety.
  • Move towards Better; Meet people where they are–including yourself. Food is part of a system for balance, by nourishing the body with nutrient dense foods and eliminating harmful foods, we put the body in a position to better assimilate everything we put into it, from food to medicines.
  • Making Sense of Food Systems: Ayerveda, TCM, Blue Zones, “Traditional” foods (Weston A. Price)
  • Western Pattern Diet: Define; Why is it a Problem?
  • Food Ethics: Why is this important to consider? Watch Chef’s Table, Episode 2 if possible
  • Culinary Materia Medica: Herbs commonly used in the kitchen and what they do for the body.
  • Healing Recipes: Yogurt rice; “I’m Sick” tea, condiments, beverages, etc.
