Our Philosophy

Good herbalists treat people, not diseases

In our program we strive to teach the skills necessary so that each student can accomplish that goal. We focus on differential diagnosis skills, materia medica and therapeutics which are essential to individualize treatment and help patients to not only resolve symptoms, but create constitutional change needed for physical, emotional and spiritual wellness.

Our Programs

I was thrilled when I was accepted into David Winston’s two year  Herbalist Training.  For most of my adult life I attempted to be have a healthy lifestyle and read related articles and books whenever possible.  However, I wanted a stronger foundation.  I wanted to be able to understand the whys and hows…not just the results.  The two year program gave me what I was seeking – knowledge of herbal therapeutics, knowledge and history of the variety of approaches to herbal medicine and the ability to intelligently research. I moved onto the Graduate Program because I wanted to understand the ways to use and combine the herbs to form treatments.

Although I did not take the courses to become a registered herbalist, I am now and will always be a student promoting the positive impacts of alternative(original!) medicine practices. Family and friends have received the benefit of my knowledge and training. I have found the avocation that I was seeking.  And, who knows, maybe one day, with continued training, I will hang out that shingle!
