Why the Herbal Academy?

The Herbal Academy is one of the key players and global leaders in creating a bridge from once-forgotten and sometimes misunderstood ancient herbal practices to the burgeoning community of people who are now seeking an alternative for supporting wellness. Their student body of over 40,000 speaks to that!

In fact, they were one of the very first schools to offer robust, innovative herbalism programs online and to a global classroom. They have an impressive lineup of education options including an extensive collection of herbalist training programs from a basic beginners course to an advanced clinical track to a number of topic-specific short courses. Their herbal courses are presented by professional clinical and folk herbalists and medical professionals offering well-rounded curriculum representing all walks of life. This community-centered spirit of teaching is the reason why I love them so much!

So when the Herbal Academy shares that they have released revised and expanded versions of their most popular herbal programs, it is truly something to get excited about!
