Clinical Master Herbalist
a designation that requires an extensive body of knowledge
Our clinical master herbalist program is rigorous for those interested in becoming a professional herbalist and natural health provider. The program is designed for practitioners that wish to diversify and expand their modalities of care and for individuals that wish to become a clinical herbalist as a stand-alone profession.
Your studies will include college-level studies in anatomy & physiology, phytochemistry, natural healing strategies, and herbal properties and formulations from the perspective of both the modern and traditional herbalists.
Learn how to support stressed body systems and which herbs and supplements are most effective. Interpret the blood tests that your clients bring with them and study the naturopathic regimens and recommended dietary changes, supplements and botanicals for 80 disease states based upon the most current evidence.
Our detailed study manuals include Immune System Fundamentals & Autoimmune Diseases; Parasites of Human Interest; Lyme Disease & Co-Infections; Basic Blood Chemistry; Vitamins, Minerals & Supplements; and Nutrition & Health.
Real Time: Led by Sharlene Peterson every 4-6 weeks, Real Time is a live, open-discussion meeting that is held online. Our students are invited to attend from the comfort of their own homes. Come and collect clinical “pearls,” as well as ask questions and engage in a variety of health-related conversations.
Accreditation: Graduates of the CMH and Master Herbalist online course are eligible to apply for Board Certification with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Board Certification is voluntary. You may freely consult with clients as long as you do not “diagnose or treat”.

Genesis School of Natural Health has most definitely met my expectations regarding the quality, relevance, integrity and authenticity of their curriculum and their entire institution. Biology major, Master Herbalist and longtime Naturopathic Medicine apprentice and researcher Sharlene Peterson’s passion in sharing the wisdom of Natural Health has materialized as Genesis and continues to be the guiding light in the way things are managed with the help of a small yet dedicated and extremely able and knowledgeable staff. If you are looking for an online diploma mill where you can receive your qualification in a few sittings without really learning much then I’m sorry to say that Genesis is not the school for you. There are no shortcuts here. You really have to dedicate hours to reading and understanding the course texts, answering the exams, and attending online classes, Genesis graduates rank among the most competent in the field and because of that I highly recommend this school to everyone including those who do not intend to practice but are just looking to gain the necessary knowledge to keep themselves and their family in optimum state of health. – Daryl P.
