Herbal Energetics: Learn How Herbs Work Within Your Body

Description

Designed for the beginning herbalist, this course will help you understand Herbal Energetics? – Why and How to use Herbs.

As Alternative Health goes mainstream the need to understand these alternatives has increased. Natural doesn’t always mean Safe. Just because herbs are natural – you must not automatically assume that they are safe for you. No two people are alike and according to your body’s individual needs some herbs could cause a health problem. In this course you will examine the Basic Concept of Disease, the Elemental Models and the Degree of Action that herbs take within the body along with the different herb types and applications.

This course will help you to understand the basic concept of disease and how to choose which herbs (that you hear about in the national news) are right for you. I will also offer you links to items on the web that will add to your knowledge of Alternative Health options. Feel free to copy and print the charts provided in this class for your personal use.
