Want to be a Herbalist?
With all the ills besetting us today, people are seeking a kinder, gentler way to heal.
That's why there’s a move towards alternative methods of treating diseases and conditions. And one of the most popular is medical 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 Blackford Centre is now offering a herbal 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.
You can study the course online at home, and there's a printed edition that comes to your door. There's no pressure – and we give you lots of support.
Written by practising herbalists, the herbal course contains 14 modules, offering you truly comprehensive, accurate, up-to-date information. It teaches you everything from herbal first aid, to how to treat or prevent common ailments. 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 herbalism course from The Blackford Centre, 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.
