Master Herbalist & Natural Health Consultant

Herbalist Courses & Natural Health Studies
A powerful combination!

The addition of a professional master herbalist program to your natural health program is perfect for a well-rounded education. A Natural Health Consultant is someone who uses all available information on lifestyle, health background, diet, and health challenges to determine the needs of men, women, and children. Herbs have a primary role in correcting imbalances in most offices. With our Master Herbalist and Natural Health Consultant training you will be fully prepared to meet the challenges your clients are facing. 

This program makes you eligible to apply for Board Certification with The American Association of Drugless Practitioners Certification and Accreditation Board.

Requirements include 15 books/manuals, 2 projects, 1 DVD, and 3 online classes (Functional Anatomy, Case Studies #1 and #2, and Case Studies #3 and #4). Estimated time to complete this program is 24 months. 57 credit hours/912 study hours.

Our students, and we do hope you join us, receive much more than a list of books to read so they may turn in an open-book test. In addition to self-study of books and tests, we  provide online instructor-led study group classes to prepare you for the critical thinking skills needed to make appropriate choices and recommendations.
