Natural Health Consultant and Master Herbalists
Natural health consultants are professionals who have extensive knowledge about natural remedies, such as vitamins, minerals, herbal formulations, nutrition, and what the body requires at the cellular level. All natural health professionals, which includes herbalists, need to understand what the body organs and systems require to function optimally. In addition to the required class/book G350 Herbs and Physiology: Herbal ABC’s: The Foundation of Herbal Medicine by Dr. Sharol Marie Tilgner, students will be able to download and print our specialized manual Immune System Fundamentals and Autoimmune Disorders.
Being an effective natural health consultant and master herbalist also requires communication and listening skills. The ability to listen carefully to a client’s health care concerns sounds easy but, what if the root cause is your focus (it should be) and not the symptoms your client is immediately concerned with resolving? Our thorough case study classes will prepare you for the all-important office consultation.
