First Name

Interested in becoming a herbalist…
but now sure how best to go about it?

Here’s how to become a herbalist, and earn a good living - while helping others live healthier lives!

With all the ills besetting us today, people are seeking a kinder, gentler way to heal.

Which is why there’s a movement towards alternative methods of treating diseases and conditions. And one of the most popular approaches is herbalism.

Kinder and gentler

Gentler than conventional pharmaceuticals, with fewer side effects, and more environmentally sensitive, herbalism has become so popular that it’s been absorbed into the mainstream. It’s even being practised by conventional doctors.

There’s a big demand for good herbalists, and the field is growing every day. Herbalists make good money, help people lead healthier lives, and can usually determine their own hours and work from home. It’s a wonderful, fulfilling way to make a living and give yourself time for your family, friends and activities.

Now, you can become a herbalist in the comfort of your own home – and reap all of the income and lifestyle benefits of this fast-growing field. Not to mention feeling wonderful about helping others feel good.


The Institute of Natural Healing is now offering a course that will give you the opportunity to earn a Diploma in Herbal Medicine -- without having to commute to classes, rearrange your schedule, or spend a lot of money on books, tuition or lectures.

Written by practising herbalists, the herbalism course contains 13 modules, offering you truly comprehensive, accurate, up-to-date information. It teaches you everything from health and nutrition, to how to treat or prevent common ailments, to using herbs to aid poor memory, obesity and arthritis. It even touches on Bach Flower Remedies and Chinese Herbal Medicine.

In addition, the herbalism course is truly practical – providing you with the crucial information you need to set up your own practice and how to find clients.

There’s no need to buy expensive books or reference materials. The course includes a complete range of study materials and ongoing online support.

And perhaps most importantly, you’ll be assigned a private tutor who is a practising herbalist -- not a college lecturer -- who will review and grade your assignments and offer practical, real-world advice.

With this course from The Institute of Natural Healing, you can study at your own pace, on your own schedule, whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you. It’s simply the best way for someone with a full, busy schedule – like you – to acquire a Diploma in Herbal Medicine.

What the course offers you:

• A comprehensive, working knowledge of herbalism that will allow you to set up your own practice as a professional herbalist

• Special information on herbal remedies especially for women, as well as gentle remedies for children – two very important groups who are likely to seek out your advice

• Important information on herbal first aid, allowing you to expand your practice to help people with pressing problems

• Techniques for growing your own herbs, assuring you of high-quality herbs at very low cost to you

And much more!
