AN INTRODUCTORY COURSE ON HERBAL SUPPORT FOR THE HUMAN BODY. THIS CLASS WILL COVER HOW TO NOURISH EACH BODY SYSTEM WITH PREVENTATIVE CARE, AND MEDICINAL PLANTS. EACH MONTH WE WILL STUDY A DIFFERENT ORGAN SYSTEM, FOLLOWED BY A DISCUSSION OF PRIMARY HERBS AND RELEVANT THERAPEUTIC APPROACHES FOR THAT SYSTEM. AT THE END OF NINE MONTHS YOU WILL HAVE A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO USE HERBAL MEDICINE FOR SUPPORTING OVERALL VITALITY AND HOW TO ADDRESS PARTICULAR HEALTH CONDITIONS.
MATERIA-MEDICA
A BEGINNING STUDY OF THE PROPERTIES AND ACTIONS OF SPECIFIC HERBS AND HOW THEY ARE USED TO MAINTAIN AND RESTORE HEALTH. EACH MONTH STUDENTS WILL BE GIVEN HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS AND SAMPLES OF HERBS TO TAKE HOME TO EXPERIENCE DIRECTLY.

THERAPEUTICS
WE WILL COVER BASIC TREATMENT APPROACHES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS. WE WILL COVER THE PHYSIOLOGY OF EACH BODY SYSTEM, COVERING ONE SYSTEM EACH WEEKEND. AFTER LEARNING HOW THE BODY WORKS AND HOW INDIVIDUAL HERBS AFFECT THE BODY, WE WILL BRING THE KNOWLEDGE TOGETHER TO VIEW HOW HERBS CAN BE USED TO RE-ESTABLISH BALANCE IN CONDITIONS SUCH AS COLDS AND FLU, INDIGESTION, CHRONIC STRESS, AND MANY OTHER CONDITIONS. A MAJOR FOCUS OF THIS COURSE IS TO HELP STUDENTS LEARN HOW TO APPROACH DISEASE PREVENTION USING HERBS IN DAILY LIFE.

**IT IS INTENDED FOR STUDENTS TO TAKE BOTH BODY SYSTEMS AS WELL AS OUR OTHER WEEKEND SERIES COURSE, HANDCRAFTED HERBALISM. TOGETHER THEY PROVIDE A COMPLETE CURRICULUM. THEY MAY BE TAKEN OVER THE COURSE OF TWO YEARS OR AT THE SAME TIME. TOGETHER THESE TWO COURSES PROVIDE THE BEGINNING HERBALIST WITH A SOLID BACKGROUND WITH WHICH TO MOVE FORWARD WITHIN HERBALISM.
