Family Herbalist Certification

FHC-Logo.gifThe Family Herbalist Certification (FHC) consists of three courses that teach a person everything they need to know to take care of basic health problems. The program will provide you with knowledge on how to use herbs, nutritional supplements, diet, lifestyle changes and other natural healing modalites to solve common health problems such as injuries, pain, acute illness and many chronic illnesses. You will learn how to select and apply remedies using a simple system of Activate, Building, Cleanse and Direct Aid (ABC+D), as well as how to prepare your own herbal remedies. This program is perfect if you want to use remedies with yourself and your family and friends.

Certified Herbal Consultant

CHC-image.jpgOur Certified Herbal Consultant (CHC) includes the courses in the Family Herbalist Certification, but adds four more classes that expand your knowledge of herbs and health assessment. In this program you gain an  understanding of the twelve basic categories of herbs and become acquainted with several hundred herbal remedies, as well as all the major properties of herbs. You are also introduced to a variety of health assesmment tools, including constitutional typing, muscle response testing, basic iridology, tongue and pulse assessment, physical assessment, case history taking and even some blood chemistry analysis. Finally, you are able to review case studies directly with Steven Horne to hone your assessment skills.

This is a very practical course that can help you build a practice as an herbalist. You'll start being able to apply the material from the first lesson.

The Herbal Hour at Herbiverse.com

TheHerbalHour.jpgThe Herbiverse member program offers a monthly webinar called The Herbal Hour, with Steven Horne and Thomas Easley, which provides training on some aspect of herbal medicine and natural healing. As a member you not only get to access this (and the other two monthly webinars), you also have access to over 200 past webinars which cover most major health problems in great detail. There is also an extensive online database covering almost 500 health problems and linking these problems with about 2,000 herbal formulas, hundreds of single herbs and nutritional supplements and much more. At $19.95 per month, this is probably the most cost-effective way out there to build your skills as an herbalist and natural healer.
