About Our Program

Thank you for visiting David Winston’s Center For Herbal Studies’ (DW-CHS) website. David Winston, RH (AHG), an internationally respected herbalist, is the dean and one of the primary instructors for this program. He teaches throughout the US, Canada, and the UK and has been teaching the two year DW-CHS program for over 40 years.

Our philosophy: Great herbalists treat people, not diseases, and 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.

The program runs from September through August for two consecutive years. The class will be held online via live webcast and we will be arranging live herb walks for people who are local, which will also be filmed and put up online for students who cannot attend.

For more information about the course please refer to the Herbalist’s Training Program tab. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us.

David’s 2-year Herbal Studies was the ABSOLUTE best class ever.  It is so much more than studying the herbs.  His knowledge and effective communication of the plants and their uses is amazing.  He is truly brilliant and I am proud to say that I studied with him.
