Okay, I have another question: what is required to become a master herbalist, as opposed to someone who is self taught? Does this course fulfill the requirements?

There is no accreditation for "master herbalist." That is a title that a particular training program calls those that complete their program. Patrick's goal is to create Clinical Herbalists.

Okay, two more: Will you be adding more modules in the future?I

And can you please define "clinical hetbalist"? I've searched and searched, but cannot find a straight definition anywhere.

Thanks

Yes, more modules are on the way. A couple are in edit right now.

Patrick explains Clinical Herbalist better than I do.

Thanks. Well the Hubby and I finally enrolled, and I'm super stoked. :yahoo:

I would still like Patrick's definition though, when he finds the time. It's not an emergency by any means.

In five years I hope to be a major contributor to the good health of my community.

Well, tell us what the definition was!
The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas first.

OKAY, I tried to paste a link to the post, but it didn't work. It's been a long day.
Anyway in a nutshell, a clinical herbalist is someone who helps people with his or her knowledge of herbs. A professional herbalist is someone who people willingly pay to be helped by knowledge of herbs. It's not as well put as Patrick said it, but you've got the general idea.

Patrick is a Clinical Herbalis and gets paid nicely for what he does.

This probably deserves a thread of its own.

Here you go.
