  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) July 23, 2013 - It is no shock to hear that across the country families everywhere are integrating ideas from the do-it-yourself movement, discovering their green thumbs, applying simple living ideas to their home, buying local, and reconnecting to nature. A holistic herbal-based approach to health is making its way back into the mainstream, right where it belongs, and the Herbal Academy of New England welcomes individuals to study these ideas in a guided, educational environment. On November 25, 2013, across the country - across the globe - students will embark in the Intermediate Herbal Course, an online program that brings herbal education right into the home! Members can take their DIY tips and tricks to a whole new level by learning salves, tinctures, teas, and body care recipes that will keep us healthy and prevent various ailments.

    And there is so much more!

    With lessons in history, healing herbs, medicine making, and food is medicine, students will discover that herbalism is not a hippy dippy movement but rather a reconnection to oneself and generations past.

    An online student shared, "Thank you so much for providing this on-line course! Amazing amount of information and easily digested! I had dabbled for some time with herbs, but gained much more understanding in the how-to's and what for's...I look forward to signing up for the next course in November and learning even more on my adventures with you all."

    Students will dive into advanced topics, discussions about theory and energetics, in-depth coverage of physiology and guidance for diagnosis and herbal formulation. They will be educated on the many theories and works of some of today's most revered herbalists such as Matthew Wood, David Hoffman, Christopher Hobbs, and others.

    There will also be lessons covering the various ways herbalism has been practiced over the centuries and how in recent years people have begun to reclaim these traditions.
