I am British and so I cannot become qualified as a herbalist with this course but it has given me so much that I cannot get from any UK course.

This is particularly in respect to materia medica: we have learned, in great detail, almost 300 herbs and David gives exactly what I wanted – both the energetics of the plants and the scientific research. There is a huge amount of information on how best to prepare each herb, herb-drug interactions, sourcing of raw materials, and even ecological information such as which herbs are endangered and how to grow each plant. We have learned about herbs used in Western, Chinese, Ayurvedic and Native American traditions.

It is easy to tell that this course has been running successfully for many years – the syllabus is clear and comprehensive and it works well as a distance course – even for those of us who watch in the midnight hours! It will take me many more years to begin to absorb the knowledge from these two years.
