You will learn how to select and apply remedies using a simple system of Activate, Building, Cleanse and Direct Aid (ABC+D), as well as how to prepare your own herbal remedies. This program is perfect if you want to use remedies with yourself and your family and friends.

In this program you gain an  understanding of the twelve basic categories of herbs and become acquainted with several hundred herbal remedies, as well as all the major properties of herbs. You are also introduced to a variety of health assesmment tools, including constitutional typing, muscle response testing, basic iridology, tongue and pulse assessment, physical assessment, case history taking and even some blood chemistry analysis. Finally, you are able to review case studies directly with Steven Horne to hone your assessment skills.

This is a very practical course that can help you build a practice as an herbalist. You'll start being able to apply the material from the first lesson.

The Herbal Hour at

TheHerbalHour.jpgThe Herbiverse member program offered a monthly webinar called The Herbal Hour, with Steven Horne and Thomas Easley, which provided training on some aspect of herbal medicine and natural healing. As a member you not only get to access to the archives of these (and the other monthly webinars—over 200 in total), which cover most major health problems in great detail. You get two new webinars each month training you in natural medicine and holistic healing. There is also an extensive online database covering almost 500 health problems and linking these problems with about 2,000 herbal formulas, hundreds of single herbs and nutritional supplements and much more. At $19.95 per month, this is probably the most cost-effective way out there to build your skills as an herbalist and natural healer.
